To be continued ...

The final round (for now) ...


From the top and moving clockwise, one in coral and gray ikat for daughter Meg, fuschia and teal for younger daughter Meliss, prairie tea dyed and cochineal for Gill in the UK, orange thrifted shirt linen and cochineal for Gale in Georgia, black and white for Anna Lisa in Rhode Island, and last (how did it take me this long?), a green and madder dyed coral pin  for myself (note: the colored links lead to posts about the dyestuffs used to make them).

B-sides ...


And while I always intone "imagine peace" as I stitch, this batch had a decidedly pink/peach/coral vibe that had me hoping to be interrupted by a call from Austin. No such luck.

So. There have been 30 pins so far, but I will happily do more if anyone regrets not having put in a request at the outset. Just leave word(s) and color(s) of peace in a comment on any post in the blog, then send an email to lizackert@gmail.com with your mailing address. 

I've remedied some omissions by going back to all the posts, which are now grouped under the Index heading "Peace Pin Project" and created a photo link in the right column. I also added links to all the Kindred Spirit mentioned in the posts and addenda where those blogs have featured posts about the arrival of the peace pins ...

In Australia 

New Mexico

Massachusetts

England 

and Washington (state)

If I missed anyone, please let me know!

With thanks to all who have participated so far ... and those yet to come. Because  there can never be too much peace, nor can it ever be too late to imagine it.

P.S. Barry Smith, who started it all, has a wonderful post over at Rustnstuff today

Anne -

It would be a joy ... should I use all the colors of the rainbow or do you have a preference?

deemallon said...

I'm so glad you made one for yourself! It's been wonderful to see these pins everywhere... and of course, up on my bookcase, or on the shells...

Hazel said...

Liz, I am smiling every time one of these dear pins catch my eye. I will be giving the 3rd to dear Libby tonight atop her birthday gift, along with the story of your generous heart.

Dee -

Thanks for coming by ... as a retired librarian and life-long beachcomber I couldn't be happier knowing where your pin hangs out

Hazel -

I was named Elizabeth in honor of my great aunt Libby (on my mom's side) and my grandmother Gertrude Elizabeth (from whom I also got my middle name Snow) ...

Happy Birthday Libby!

Mine has arrived! it is so beautiful :) I am thinking where I'll 'home' it. Perhaps in my car since I'm there so much.
Thank you so, so much.

I love the mental image you've conjured of your pin crusin' the West Coast

Winona Fetherolf said...

love these . . . I found your site through Spirit Cloth. I would love to receive a pin. I am a member of The Apronista Collective in Albuquerque NM and would like to share this idea with my sisters. We are 9 women who make statements with aprons. You can find us on Facebook.

Liz A said...

Winona -

I would be delighted to do so and hope you will indeed share the idea with others. And I'm guessing, after looking at your Facebook page, that red might be a good choice.

Hello
I would love a pin if the offer is still open. I keep getting all these messages from the universe to begin natural dyeing again.
