Prayer Flags

Sometimes I feel so dumb! I am sure this never happens to you! This morning I was catching up on Quilting Daily emails and there was an article about prayer flags.

If you have followed me long at all, you know I am fairly easily inspired and that means yet another new project. This one may be long-going…

I try to live a mindful, prayerful life. My favorite element is the wind. This is a natural for me! I always wondered by people left these flags outdoors to fray and virtually disintegrate…in the wind and weather. Now I know! They are supposed to be there, sending the prayers up on the wind…how cool is that?!?

This is an ancient art and has kept going and being modernized with pictures, quotes, blessing (in your native language) and more. Well, I am off to start the project…I will likely start simple so I can get some prayer flags waving!
