I have created this blog because I wanted to be able to share my love of sewing with fellow crafters. Sewing & Crafting are one of the loves in my life and a wonderful relaxing hobby. I hope to help inspire and encourage others by showing my creations.
To this I will add that I need a place to document my thoughts and feelings as I go through this journey called life. Every time I try to start a writing journal, it lasts for about a week. I am hoping that this format "sticks" for me better than what I have done in the past.

Here are photos of the PRAYER BLANKETS I have made in the past. These Prayer Blankets are sewn with love and prayers for those who receive the blanket. It is a symbol of a faith-sharing community "covering with prayer the individual who receives it."
The prayer blanket brings comfort to the suffering, and peace to the fearful. God has used this beautiful ministry not only to touch the lives of countless people who have received the Prayer Blankets while they are going through extremely difficult times in their lives, but the lives of those involved in the ministry as well. What a blessing it is to have those who give abundantly of their time, talents, and treasures, making this Prayer Blanket ministry possible.
I no longer have been making these, however, now my Grandmother has been making them for local folks who need them. She has made over SIXTY prayer blankets since Memorial Day 2010!! She too has been blessed with prayers and healing as those who receive them continue to pray for HER as well. She only asks that the new receiver of these blankets pray for the needs of the OTHER 75+ receivers needs in addition to their own.
