This plate is made during the summer but it feels appropriate today. I made the plate after seeing the documentary Pray the devil back to hell, a documentary of a group of women in Liberia. They connected together beyond the boundaries of religion and archieved peace after a civil war that lasted 14 years.
The square on the plate means: Till here but no further. On another level it encourages to connect because when connected we become each others safety net. The stronger the bonds, the stronger the net will be.
Wish you a lovely wednesday while you focus on your connections.
A few weeks ago Deanna organized a give-away in our secret society over at Flickr. The secret society is a gathering of ladies who love to swing their needle while Karen keeps a watchful eye out. You probably guessed it by now, in case you haven't ... I was the winner of the give-away and yesterday my mailman was so kind to drop off her parcel. The handmade pouch is very beautiful. Deanna had ofcourse made some pictures of the pouch but she hadn't photograph the inside. And here was a big surprise. The inside of the pouch is made of silk with a feather design woven in. In case you don't know, I photograph little white feathers when I come across them and so my name was on the pouch from the start ... or so it feels. .. :-)
So thank you Deanna for your generous gift and I will see you in class again on wednesday.
