This flag was made by Linda Miller as a reminder that everything does indeed change. That is the one thing we can count on in this life, is it not?!

Anne Westhart joins us and writes" I've recently completed my first prayer flag. My goal is to do a prayer flag that will correspond to each chapter of an art book that I'm working on. This flag is special in that it's my first flag but its words have thus far been one of the greatest lessons that I've learned about life and living."

Sona Nast made these flags for her friend, Paul, who recently had a double lung transplant due to having pulmonary fibrosis. Sona writes "he is recovering well so far. There is a fund raiser for him this week and I'm going to bring the flags for him (he won't be there because of his fragile immune system).I hope he likes them and that they bring him good healing."

Deborah here. I recently finished a piece based on the tradition of Welsh Quilting. Naturally there were a few scraps.
I have a busy few months coming up and I need to Focus. Hope these flags help, and wishing you all the focus you may need to get through.

Cheryl English, from Colorado writes about her flag "I started making these flags after my husband passed away in January 2012 and I joined a grievance group. This flag is my first. I used rusted fabrics laid over a canvas backing. The rusted bits represents all the tears I've shed over these months. These flags have gotten me back into my studio and making art."

Nancy Maxwell James joins us.
Nancy writes "Hope, Faith, Joy and Dreams…prayers for those we love and those we may not know but support spiritually. I loved the history behind them and the way one could express themselves through art and healing. In my eyes “prayers” are from all faiths and a support network that each of us can share."

Victoria McOmie writes "Here are my first set of prayer flags. I was inspired about a year ago to write my own prayer by reading John O'Donohue's book Eternal Echoes. I finished writing the prayer and wanted to put it on a prayer flag. I printed my prayer on drapery lining fabric by running it through my laser printer. I made more flags using fabric pastels and paints plus some more printed flags with blessings."

Hello, Deborah O'Hare here. Over at my Quilt Routes blog I have recently set myself the task of using up some scraps that have been hanging around for quite a while. I am having a lot of fun and enjoying the process.
This flag came from the scrap bag. Sometimes it is good to put aside those things that have to be done and to just play. I hope you too can find the time for some play.
