Prayer Flag Project Day 12: All Creatures, Great and Small
Sunday's flag is inspired by another favorite hymn:
All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small, All things wise and wonderful, The Lord God made them all. (17th Century English Melody, text by Cecil Alexander)
I can't think of that music without harkening back to the James Herriott books I read in my youth, or the television series that filled my rainy saturday afternoons while in high school. If you haven't read them, do, and if you have read them, read them again...
Today's flag is cut from an antique linen collar which already had the beautiful satin pleats and lace attached. The bluebird is made of raw edge applique, and held onto the linen with stitching. The tag reads "watch a spider build a web" which is one of the requirements for the "insect" badge in the girlscout handbook. The back of the tag has a picture of a mayfly.
