A Collection for the Neighbourhood

Barb E Rickard has made a collection of flags to hang in her garden.

"I've just made a baker's dozen of prayer flags that are now hanging in my garden.  The photos are posted on my blog along with a little story as to why I've decided to hang them and the plan to create more."

for Health

This is my Prayer Flag for my friend Deryn who is having scans today for cancer. I wish her good health & that the scans are clear, and that it will also help others who are suffering in the world today.

Prayer Flag Workshop

Creative Circle Prayer Flags
Prayer Flag Workshop

On a lovely summer Sunday, I taught a Creative Circle workshop to introduce the idea of flag making to others.  A wonderfully inventive afternoon was had by all!  Please visit my blog to read more about our experience and see more flags.

A Collection

Prayer flag

Today we hear from Susi Costello.
"I made my prayer flag as part of Carly Marie's healing project to help break the silence surrounding child death. My flag has embroidered panels for love, light, and truth as well as one with my daughter Tigerlily's name and the day she was born/died. It was both incredibly difficult and wonderfully purposeful to make these in honor of my daughter."

Day of Hope

"We lost our son Dylan during the third trimester, due to complications from HELLP Syndrome, a pregnancy specific condition.  A beloved son, brother, and grandson; he is our little blue dragonfly.  A reminder of how quick everything can turn, the fragility of life.  My hope for my family is to focus on strength, love and joy.

This is a prayer flag I made for the event: August 19th - Day of Hope is a day that is held internationally each year since 2008. It was created to help break the silence surrounding the death of babies and children. Part of this very special day is The August 19th - Day of Hope Prayer Flag Project which is a profoundly moving, poignant and peaceful way to break the silence surrounding the death of babies and children."

For John

Today we hear from Maryly Matthewman

" This is our Prayer Flag Protect. We renamed it Wish Flag Project for John Bradley Thompson but the ideas are still the same.

  John Bradley is a little boy currently at St. Jude's Hospital in Memphis receiving radiation and chemotherapy for a very rare brain tumor, DIPG.  We had our kick off day today with the Wish Flags and we gave out 85 flags and people were very generous in their donations. Many more flag kits are coming. Here are some of the flags.

 John is in Memphis with his net at the ready to catch all the wishes."
