Peace Felt Session 1 in Baard, Netherlands

We received these wonderful photos and write up from Truus Huijbregts in Baard.
She and her group held their first of two planned sessions for creating their group Peace Felt 2010 project. Their next planned session is on Peace Day 2010, Sept. 21st.

Here is what Truus wrote about their session:

Today was the day of the first session of our ‘Peace-Felt’group. Anna, Jacomien, Thea, Hilde and I worked at our ‘heartsplan’. Each of us felted a heart using a mold. The hearts are increasing in size, so that they can fit into each other. Just like the Matroesjka-dolls. Each of us has chosen their own colours. The only common colour is the colour red. Therefore each heart suits with its creator. And…because of the common red also together. However, after a nice morning with lots of coffee and chatting and a superbe lunch outside in the sunny garden, when the hearts were felted…we began to doubt…The hearts are so nice! Isn’t it a shame to put them into each other…?

Well…our next felting session will be on the International Day of Peace, the 21st of September. We will finish the felted hearts and decide what we will do…
