Wouldn't you think?

Addendum: Link to peace pin arrival here ...

It seems like I've made enough of the peace pins that I should be able to stitch them free-hand. Or at least with minimal hand-lettering.

So as I worked on a pin for Hazel, I decided to use a white marking pen to give just a hint of line on madder dyed linen ...


with blue and green to go along with her recent posts ...

Except, as is often the case, what's in my mind doesn't always translate smoothly onto cloth ...


Fortunately, I have one of Hazel's boats close at hand for encouragement so the third time was the charm ...


backed with a bit of indigo shibori ...


and now ready to sail away.

Hi L - I always believe that if they are done with loving and peacoefilled intent then they are all right; and they all look good to me. B

I just read Hazel's post with just the hull of boat separating sea and sky ... Grace's comments and yours. Perfect pairings all ...

Hazel said...

Dear Liz, this & they are all beautiful, in thought and stitch. Your care and heart are a perfect pairing too. ox

Thank you for this ... I sometimes wonder if this is "slacktivism" but I've decided anything that brings a smile or causes someone's blood pressure to go down a few notches is worth doing
