Beth Gould: Flags for Grandchildren and Grandparents



Strung on the Porch


Good Fortune 

I read about this wonderful project on Jane LaFazio's blog. After reading about Prayer Flags, I decided to follow tradition using the colors of the elements and adding purple. My flags are simple with a one word prayer on each. I hand dyed each one except the white. 

As a Grandmom who has been involved in raising two grandchildren, I wanted to dedicate the flags to all grandparents and their grandchildren. The white flag shows a elder hand holding a child with the word "HOPE".
The blue flag is a symbol that out of chaos we can achieve "Peace". The rest of the flags are self explanatory.
This project has given me the opportunity to stop and think of what is important.

Peace and Blessings, Beth
