Prayer Flag Project: Day 4 Employment

The employment numbers for the month of May were released this week, and it seems that our economy is still sluggish, as so many people are continuing their search for meaningful work.







Today's prayer is for full employment for all who seek it... meaningful work for all who can work... just compensation... and a safe environment in which to labor.

Day 4's flag, Employment, is made of upholstery linen scraps, floss, embroidery silk, buttons and a scrap of an antique quilt block.  The hatched base of the weaving is the twine "window" from a bag of potatoes (I can't throw anything away, thus the first line of weaving "How to Utilize Everything...").  The words which are woven into the twine are inked pages from a vintage Girl Scout Handbook and refer to my current studio work.  Today's tag reads, Work... It is a good idea.

I am deeply impressed by the work you are doing on this project. Not the first time I have heard of (or seen) prayer flags ... but the first time I've been inspired to try making my own by looking/reading about someone elses.

Thank you!
