my first prayer flags ~

in between packing, renovating Villa Maria and tending Inglewood.. I have finally made a start on my prayer flags.. so far I have made two with 2 others half completed. I was going to make 7 but 5 is the number I am to make. .. not sure why but 5 kept popping into my head.

the turtle was the first one I created.. trying to create these in the way of our indigenous people of Australia. my squares are 10" square & I will sew them onto tape to hang in my apple tree

[the fish is my second]

the other thing that I feel I must do is kick start the Earth Healing blog Earth Healing and Nurturing. Unfortunately, I lost the list of participants .. so if you were on my list as an Earth Healer, please email me [I will posting there soon..] ~ as well as creating flags for the Gulf, I have also decided to create one for Mother Earth..

and one more thing.. it looks like we may be moving in about 3 - 4 weeks so you can imagine how busy I am.. finishing the renovation is tiring work, i have aching muscles in my legs from up & down the stairs, my arms are becoming very fit & toned & my back aches dreadfully.. and then we have my mother moving to aged care in the next week or so & it is up to dutch husband I to do that AND we are selling our business.. dutch husband has to finalize over 30yrs of work in 6 weeks... I am trying to visit blogs & I am sorry if I don't get around as often as I usually do... and if I don't get to yours.. give me a prod..

Your prayer flags are beautiful, the first thing I thought before reading your words, was that they look like aboriginal art.
Be sure to care for yourself during this stressful time and rest when you can.
Don't worry about visiting me, I know where to find you.
Much love

Busy woman! Your flags are stunning. I love them! I know that the energy coming from your heart is even more stunning. ♥

Your prayer flags are beautiful! But holy moly, you guys are busy! "It never rains but it pours," I guess. Take care of yourselves and try not to burn out!

I know how it is. We've been moving mother into the home for a week now but cleaning up her home is the worst nightmare ever. I have never seen such filth. We couldn't figure out what the smell was that was permeating her home. Then we found it was the fridge...

amelia said...

By the way, I love your flags. Now tell me what we have to do to make them start to do their work on our sick, sick earth...

Fabulous, Robyn!
I love the turtle; over here it's the aboriginal symbol for North America, or Turtle Island as they call it.

xxooxx

Your prayer flags look great! I love the style and design of them. As for visiting blogs, I say don't give it a thought! You have things that are important to take care of and blogs will always be here when you have time. Just get your mom settled, get yourself moved into Villa Maria and don't worry about blogs.

Love the style you are doing your prayer flags in. I am sure you will be worn out by the time everything gets done. But I am also sure it will be worth it when you are in your new home. Love Hugs and Blessings

Good god girl, you have much on your plate! Moving a mum is not an easy thing either. Do you have sibling help for the logistics and her house clearing/cleaning? Guess there'll be a lot of "settling in" time for you all when the dust has settled. Meantime, the flags look wonderful, and everyone will understand if you find it hard to visit or post. What you are doing and organizing in such a time frame is amazing, but will make that sigh of relief count for so much more when you shift into your exciting new home. Bet you can't wait - and good luck and best wishes to you and Dutch husband winding up the business that has been so much part of your lives.
