My name is Deborah O'Hare and this is my first post on The Prayer Flag Project. With that in mind I hope you will indulge me in a bit of selfishness with my first flags.
I have made these for myself and my family, for Protection, after having experienced not one, but two house fires within eight months this year.

The first was a shed fire, but the whole back of the house was badly damaged from the heat of the flames.
The second was a kitchen fire back in August, and as I write this I am still without a kitchen, eagerly awaiting the fitters to come along and put in a new one.
I don't tell you this to promote sympathy. No-one was hurt and I count my blessings.
But I would be lying if I tried to deny how unsettling the whole experience has been.

You will find me living in the UK on the South Wales coast, with my husband, two teenagers and a dog named Rosie!
I am thrilled to have been asked to contribute to this great project.
See you again soon!
