Prayer Flags

Prayer flags are part of the ancient Buddhist tradition. Traditionally, they are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. it is believed that “the words and symbols printed on the flags (the prayers) are spread throughout the universe as the flags flutter in the wind.

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
