Several years ago I created 90 lavender pillows for the Seattle Weavers Guild Sale. It was so much fun that I decided to do it again! Plus, I now had lavender from The Garden of One Thousand Buddhas. Plus, there is a Peace Festival coming up, and I am bringing my Saori loom to have Peace Weaving happening during the Festival. I haven't been able to find a link to the current poster, but here is a link to former festivals.

If you happen to be around Western Montana on September 7th, be sure to attend this event which promises to be the biggest and best festival in the 9 years it has been presented. 

 Here is the first batch (25) all stuffed and ready to hand stitch closed. This first batch uses the cloth woven in 2010 by Sharmila in India (of the Dalai Lama's horoscope weaving). The next batch will use Peace Weaving cloth.

And here are the pillows posing in my home with Gary in the background.

More to follow!

Who could imagine a better way to spend some time, harvesting lavender at the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas.  
 I can almost smell the lavender--

Well actually I CAN smell the lavender. There are giant bowls of it around the house

The next step is drying, then cleaning and the final step---lavender sashets!
