VERY beaded prayer pillow


I just finished this beaded prayer pillow for a very special friend of mine who is moving to Denver next week. I will miss her tremendously. Many of the beads have symbolic meaning to them. On the back, I added a small metal tag with the word "remember" and then signed the back of it. It attached with a tiny silver chain representing our hearts always being bound as friends just as chains bind. I will be giving this to her tomorrow at church as I see her for the last time before she leaves. I'm really sad.

It must have taken you forever to sewn on all those beads. It's gorgeous and worth every minute you put into it. I'm sure your friend will treasure this beauty. She will think of you everytime she sees it.
