Fall is in the the air

But there is a large feel of fall in the air--geese honking, trees turning--reminders of how close Christmas is Mouses in houses, horses and other animals with thickening looks to maybe be a wet winter--we need one. I hope mother nature keeps the snow on the mountain (a little down here in the valley for Christmas is OK)

So with that in mind I pulled out a WIP (for quite some time) and decided it is this projects time to be done:

This is the background for a round wall hanging (table topper originally). Strips were already cut for the "paper" piecing, and the base for the strips already drawn and put together (two half circles because of the size.) It has two more darker colors for the outer rings--and bonus-the bias binding was already done, pressed and rolled in the project bag.

I don't sell Prayer/Comfort Shawls & PrayerComfort Quilts....

I make many, I share many, but my Prayer/Comfort Shawls and quilts are made for people I know and care for, and gifted to them.

I will help people buy fabric, sit by them and help them make them, but I will not sell them for people to give to other people.

I share pictures of what I have done, so others can get ideas... they are sometimes hard to come by in times of stress.

When I make a prayer/comfort item, The needs of the person(s) are forefront. The timing of the need dictates how complicated. I have don all-nighters for needs that were urgent.

For me, each item requires lots of thought, and prayer. If some bible verse(s) are repetitive in the process I will normally share those with the receiver in a note, or in conversation or prayer if I am able to deliver personally.

So here are a few examples for those who may be looking for ideas...

They really can be as complex or as simple as you want or need them to be.
