Prayer Shawl

A couple of years ago, i had found the prayer shawl pattern online and downloaded it. At the time, I did not belong to any church or ministry. When President Bush sent our troops to the Middle East, the prayer shawl pattern had become the forefront on my mind. Since I teach at one of our local craft stores, i thought it would be a wonderful project to do. Well the project not only included students but the different local religious groups also. The shawl was done in a variagated red, white and blue with a yellow trim. everyone that i had told about the shawl -- crocheted from a few stitches to a row and had added a prayer to it. After the shawl was completed, we sent the shawl to the First Lady along with some of the prayers. I did receive a phone call from the White House thanking me for the shawl but I never heard from the First Lady about it.
