Prayer Flag Project: Day 5 Rest

The prayer for Sunday's flag comes from a favorite hymn we sing on All Saints Sunday (November 1 or there abouts).  "For all the saints, who from their labors rest...".  Pretty self explanatory... keeping in mind that as Lutherans, we believe in "the sainthood of all believers", so the flag holds a prayer for all of my friends and relatives who have gone to eternal rest before me.

Day 5's flag, Rest, is made of a piece of vintage quilt, with the words of the hymn written in rayon thread.  Thread scraps are caught under vintage tulle.  the flower is a piece of silk rod.  The words on the tag read, "Eternal rest, give to them, O Lord" and were clipped from an old mass book.
