New contributor, Sonja Hagemann, started created her first prayer flag on September 11, 2011.
She continues to make them as time allows and has made them into a take-along project after painting the background fabric.
Sonja loves to paint on fabric and here are some of her first efforts. The backgrounds are old sheets colored with paints and inks and sometimes shiny glitter that catches the light. The flags are strung on torn selvages of her hand painted fabrics and knotted together. Sonja states "Hope seems to be the word that surfaces first for me."
"what a great way to start a new year!"
