Never Give Up

I just made a new Prayer Flag.

The prayer is "Never give up" and I hope my neighbor will draw force from it to keep on praying and 'fighting' his multiple health problems.

I am hoping everyone on the Prayer Flag blog will join in prayer with us.
The flag can be seen on my blog also where I explain in detail how I made it in both English and French.
Thank you so much,

Utah Arts Festival

I had the privilege of teaching a group of ladies about Prayer Flags recently.  They signed up for the class with only a description and no photos.  They had no idea what the flags would look like.  
I call that faith.

  They all made fantastic flags!

Celebrate Life

My first flag!

This goes out to all suffering with depression – there is hope and we can learn to celebrate life.

Made with a cotton drop cloth from the hardware store and recycled sari strips.

Peace Flags

Here are some photos of a series of prayer flags created for a church Peace Garden. Each flag carries with it a desire to see change in the world. Our country and the world are faced with so many critical issues that this was a way for me to release some of my heart ache ant to affirm my intention to take action. - Evonne Waldo

Messengers of Joy and Goodwill

 These Messengers of Joy and Goodwill ©2016 dance in the wind, infused  with  good wishes and charged with compassion for all of nature’s sweet  generosity.

 •My wish is that each and               
 everyone of us finds our place,  digs in and takes responsibility for a tiny bit of habitat, nurturing our  connection to the spirit of nature.  
 • A hopeful reminder for all to grow a habitat garden, to share our spaces  with nature.
 • Show your wonder and awe of mother-nature.
 • Invite nature in.

Be bold. Be brave. Be daring. Be unusual. 
Just one step may begin a new journey.

Create Habitat
Fly the flags

What is Faith?

What is faith? 
It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. 
It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, 
even though we cannot see it up ahead.
Hebrews 11:1

For Tiffany

I made this prayer flag for my friend, Tiffany, who is in recovery from breast cancer. At the time I made it, her prognosis was uncertain as her cancer was very difficult and aggressive and was not responding to treatment as the doctor's had hoped. Today, I'm happy to report that she is thankfully on the recovery side of it having gone through a whole host of treatments and surgeries. I'm so thankful that she is alive and well!!YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!

Tiffany and I have been friends since middle school. She is a strong, gentle and kind soul. She is spiritual and is a yoga instructor. She eats and lives healthier than anyone I know. We went to our first concert together, she was my first friend to get married and have a baby, in college we took art classes together and ate lunch together in the covered patio overlooking the foundry. She travels yearly to India for instruction and yoga practice. I was so fortunate to meet up with her again this past summer for lunch at my cousin's house in New Orleans. It was so good to see her and hug her and wish her well for her fight and journey through this cancer. I was afraid she wasn't going to make it and I'm so thrilled and thankful that she did! I love you Tiffany!

The flag is made with batik from a favorite skirt of mine, part of a vintage cutter quilt, silk sari ribbon, and re-purposed prayer beads. It is both hand and machine stitched.

Raising the Flags of Love

I wanted to share a magazine article with everyone at The Prayer Flag Project because I thought you might enjoy learning more about why Carrie Bloomston and her mother, Rhonda Greenberg, put together The Happy Flag Project in 2014.  There is more to the story than just honoring His Holiness the Dali Lama. The story is in the current issue of Amy Butler's Blossom.  You can read the entire magazine online (for FREE) by clicking on this link.  Carrie's article is on page 143, however, in my opinion, the whole magazine is worth a read as it is filled with lots of beautiful eye candy, and wonderful articles. Enjoy!
