Prayer Flag- Honoring Las puntadas del alma/Stitches of the Soul

I woke early yesterday and knew exactly what I wanted to do for my Prayer Flag. I didn't quite get it done before I left to teach at the National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago; a journey I have made about every two weeks for the last three years. We have been known for a while as Las puntadas del alma/Stitches of the Soul. It has been an amazing experience being able to teach basically the same group of women for three years. I thought we would continue, but now our future is uncertain. I made it until six o'clock last night before crying. It makes this Prayer Flag have even deeper meaning for me. If we don't ever get to meet again, I only hope I have given them enough to continue and I know with time the pain of their loss will lessen.


  1. Yes, it feels uncomfortable to be in limbo. Hopefully, Los hilos del alma will not become extinct.Sincerely, Martha

  2. It has been great to belong to Las puntadas del alma/ Stitches of the soul...a great opportunity thanks to Maestra K. MusGrave.
