Prayer Blankets - an article for the Spencer Magnet

At the last sewing group meeting I went to a few weeks ago, I noticed that several ladies were working on the same project. I asked a few questions and learned that they were making prayer blankets for terminally ill and seriously parishioners at their church. I thought it was so cool that I wrote an article about prayer blankets for the Spencer Magnet, my local paper. (Follow the link for the inspiring story.)

I also thought I'd try to make one for a friend who is sick right now too. I don't know that the colors are really "her," but I think she'll appreciate the sentiment anyway. I'll be sure to post photos once she receives it. (I don't want to post pictures in case she reads my blog.)

What do you like to do to cheer up your friends?

Oh wow, that is seriously wonderful...making for community.
I am into food these days, and have been taking lots of food to new mommies.
