Needlework Tuesday

I accomplished a couple of sewing/craft projects this week.  The first is a prayer flag for a friend and co-worker who is battling cancer.  The design represents Christ's light shining through and "breaking the chains" of cancer - thus the broken chain links.   

My second project was throw pillows for our daughter's apartment.  The orange, large-floral print and the taupe faux suede are scraps of the upholstery fabric we used to recover her chair and ottomen. Since there wasn't enough left to make two solid pillows, I added some coordinating prints and made a crazy quilt pillow.  The covers are simple shells with an opening on the back to slide over throw pillows she already owned.  They slide off easily for washing, but no need for tricky zippers!

The remainder of my crafting time was spent on Zentangles, which is tomorrow's post.

What did you craft this week?  Needlework Tuesday is hosted by Heather @ Books & Quilts.  Visit Heather and see her beautiful quilt projects.


  1. I still like the idea of your prayer flags. I have wanted to make banners for my front porch for years, but for some reason, it hasn't happened. I even bought a book with detailed instructions. I should get it out, maybe that will inspire me.

  2. Nice work, Tami! I love the orange fabric and your crazy pillow is terrific!
