Free Tibet......

Ever since I became aware of The Prayer Flag Project
I wanted to make one .
It was perfect for me to do one for Tibet
since that is where prayer flags originated and also
since that is a cause that is so important to me. 
For the main body of the flag I used some of the 
indian mirror fabric leftover from when I made my  bag
Since so many Tibetans have taken refruge in
India, that seemed to work for me.

I added this little bit of cutwork
embroidery that I picked up at smashingrubbish.
Not sure of the exact origin of this cutwork/ handwork, but Jennette and I both think
it is from that part of the world.

I decided to sew a ring over the ladys earring,
and to use it to hang my prayers from.
There is room so I will probably add more in the future.

It is hanging out in my garden,
where I hope the bells on it will tell me when
the breeze sends out my prayer.
