Peace Cuff peacecuffs

By Julee Dunekacke Jaeger

I’m about to participate in my first Peace Rally to commemorate the 4th year of the Gulf War II.   The title of the rally is: LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE NOW!  BRING THE TROOPS HOME.  In that theme, I wanted to create something supporting peace and at the same time all of those who were sent over making the sacrifices.  Here in the middle of the US, the yellow ribbon is usually only found as a car magnet.  This pattern attempts to take back the yellow ribbon to its fiber heritage.
