Come sit with me

I love blue, purple and scarlet yarn! I have crocheted most of my life, and when I found out that there were women across the nation who were forming Prayer Shawl Ministries, I became so excited; I started one at my church. The Wednesday devotionals on this blog weave together the art of crocheting and the love of God. Plus there are quotations on leadership, patterns, book reviews, and news from other Prayer Shawl Ministries. So if God has filled you with a love for crocheting & knitting, pull out those blue, purple and scarlet yarns and those crochet hooks and knitting needles and join me.

Gift Bag Items

The McLeod Prayer Shawl Ladies will be crocheting, knitting, sewing or quilting small items to add to our Welcome Gift Bags which we hope to hand out to our church's visitors in the months ahead.  Items will hopefully include hand-made bookmarks, coffee mug warmers, flower or seasonal pins, etc.  

We plan to make 12 bags each six months (I KNOW!!!  We haven't had that many visitors in 5 years!!!  However, I have hope and faith and a really cute pattern for a floral pin that I'm just dying to try!)

The project should cost about $55 every six months.  If you are not able to make something to add to the gift bags, perhaps you might consider donating toward them. 

This will be our hand-craft emphasis for January.

  1. This is a wonderful ministry. My daughter is making a prayer shawl for a dear woman in our Church family. Glad you all are enjoying this so much.
