Prayer Flags for Birmingham, AL

Last weekend I held a mini workshop in my town for our "sister project" (The Happy Prayer Flag Project) and we created dozens of flags that will be sent to the city of Birmingham, AL to welcome the Dalai Lama this fall. Learn more about this wonderful project here. We had children of all ages creating flags, sewing, embroidering, and coloring their hopes and dreams in cloth. What a blessing to be able to share Carrie Bloomston's project!
