Weaving Love ~

Posted in Handcraft, humanitarian, my handcraft with tags , , , , , , , , , on 28,January,2013 by Mia

AAKHDA is a Humanitarian project I have formed to promote Love among all. One of the projects of AAKHDA is my work with Palestinian women with which I work in handcraft initially using recycled materials to enhance a sense of empowerment within times of crisis but also other products involving the incorporation of their own traditional embroidery to help promote an awareness to their special language of craft.

Kahliya has taken upon itself to sell the products made by these women to help aid in their income.Sometimes Kahliya will create special items surrounding the theme to help fund this project .

Im so excited! This is a new series “Weaving Love “, another part of  project “AAKHDA” inwhich I work with my Palestinian sisters in different themes of creative handcraft to help promote their work, aid in their income and create a dialogue of love !

In this series there is an exciting dialogue between my sisters and myself! I am very enthusiastic about saving and promoting traditional handcraft and in these pieces their traditional Palestinian embroidery is used to create the word “Peace” in cotton thread on white cotton fabric, for which I created  frames by handstitching lovely fabrics!

These are lovely messages of Love and Peace, carrying our loving energy within the dialogue of our work! Wonderful gift of Love, Peace offering, decoration of beauty ensuring Peace and Harmony in the home. By purchasing this work you will be contributing to the continuation of this project and the wellfare of these women.

Im so excited!
This is the first of the new series “Weaving Love “, another part of  project “AAKHDA” inwhich I work with my Palestinian sisters in different themes of creative handcraft to help promote their work, aid in their income and create a dialogue of love !

In this series there is an exciting dialogue between my sisters and myself! I am very enthusiastic about saving and promoting traditional handcraft and in this piece their traditional Palestinian embroidery is used to create the word “Peace” in a Lilac colored cotton thread on white cotton fabric, for which I created a frame by handstitching Fuschia blossomed Silk muslin and pink satin silk covering the back (Remnants of the Paris fashion industry destined to be discarded). I signed in cotton embroidery “AAKHDA” and added a crocheted hook for hanging.

This is a lovely message of Love and Peace, carrying our loving energy within the dialogue of our work! Wonderful gift of Love, Peace offering, decoration of beauty ensuring Peace and Harmony in the home.

We are All One ~

We are All One

Dear friends, I have recently relocated again ,this time to England for a while until we can hopefully return to Cyprus within a few months. Im so sorry I havent been able to be very active here, but all  this moving around has definitely made it difficult to tend to all the projects at hand in the same manner whilst new challenges are taking more attention. Needless to say, in spirit I am continuing to be very present as I continue to whip up new ideas, and I am looking forward to implement these ideas as soon as possible!

Its very funny how my life turns to incorporate so many shifts and relocations even when I least expect or plan..and yet as I ponder upon this..it does really summarise a lot of who I am..endlessly intrigued and inspired by the various cultures who walk this earth! And so..each and every change gifts me with more cherished experiences and I get to know more about my extended earth family!

As long as I can remember myself, I was Always so thrilled, no matter where I was, to have the opportunity to encounter someone from another culture..My eyes light up with excitement and all I want is to absorb all I can from this world of theirs, which is new to me..

Even these days as we live in England, we found ourselves searching for Mediterannean spices and foods which we have grown accustomed to and could not find in the local supermarket, and found a street full of shops carrying foreign products..Eastern Europe.Latin,Turkish … How grateful did we feel! Once again a chance to visit other people from other cultures and hear their stories! We met a Lovely man from Spain who sells products from Portugal and shared a bit of his experiences with us.. brothers from Kurdistan who sell Turkish produce..a Portugese woman married to a Man from Iran who sell Middle Eastern products..Asian products sold by people from China and Thailand..WOW… Every time we go there we get to visit the world..and learn..absorb..

We are just so happy they all exist to color our world…Don`t You…?

How boring and miserable would our life be if we all belonged to the same country ,religion and race..? We all bear in us variations of the pure truth, different notes and colors to add other angles to our learning experience..

This year 2013..think about that..take a small glimpse out your window and take in a message a neighbor of yours has come to deliver to you..enrichen your experience here on Earth..learn something about your brother from a world..other .. to yours.. !

Happy New Year, Much Love
