Original Miracle Scarf designed by: Rick Mondragon for Debbie Macomber
for her precious book & movie "Call Me Mrs. Miracle"

I got this from Debbie Macomber's newsletter. It's the scarf worn by Doris
Roberts in the second Mrs. Miracle movie. Oddly enough, none of the photos
from the movie on the web site show her in the scarf.

Prayer Shawls

                                       {JMSQ - Prayer Heart Woman}
                         1,2,3, Shawl (photo above) © Jean Marie (JMSQ)
                                  {Serving Christ By Serving Others}

Wearing a Shawl is like recieving a Hug from God.

This is our opportunity to Bless another who may be Ill, Hurt, Depressed, Lonely or in need of Spiritual Comfort with our Prayer Shawls.

“Shawls… made for centuries universal and embracing, symbolic of an inclusive, unconditionally loving, God. They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace, mother, hug, shelter and beautify. Those who have received these shawls have been uplifted and affirmed, as if given wings to fly above their troubles…”
                     Written in 1998 by: Janet Bristow 2004


KNITTING Needle size:
I use size 10 1/2 when making shawls that I want to show detail.
I use size 13 when making shawls with bulky yarn

CROCHET Hook Size:
Usually I use a J hook for adults & H for babies


You can either Knit, Crochet, or Sew a Shawl.
The making of a prayer shawl is a spiritual practice which embodies our thoughts and prayers for the receiver. It is a gift {FREE} freely given with no strings attached. Made in prayer, as prayed for durning the making of our shawls, for prayer is covering the reciever with GOD, with our Blessings & Wishes from our hearts to your heart, the shawls are then passed on hand-to-hand and heart-to-heart.


Prayer
May God’s grace be upon these shawls…warming, comforting, enfolding and embracing. May they be a safe haven…a sacred place of security and well being…sustaining and embracing in good times as well as difficult ones. May each one who receives a shawl be cradled in hope, kept in joy, graced with peace, and wrapped in love.


LAUNDERING: - Machine wash warm, gentle cycle, Tumble dry low. Do not over dry. For best results on fringe, hand wash, lay flat to dry, (ALWAYS wash separtly / alone) never mix with other laundry either washing or drying)


God holds "ALL" © to this Ministry of Love, & the Pattern's
                     J.M.S.Q. 1/10/2009

Give a woman a prayer shawl and she knows she has a friend who cares.
Teach her to knit / crochet and she will pray for others her whole life while making shawls.
                  By: Susan I. Smith-Vandergriff aka Susan in MO


                           {JMSQ - Prayer Heart Woman}

Hebrews 6:10 (NIV) God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.

Dish-Cloths

DishCloth is something everyone can use. I make mine both in Crochet & Knitting. I make 2 out of a skein of Sugar & Cream Cotton. One for a gift and one for family.
 
When knitting I always use LARGE NEEDLES so they will dry quickly, other wise they will smell like meldew or mold and then they are good for nothing but the trash. I also have a curtain rod hanging right above my kitchen sink to hang my rinsed out dish-cloths over to air dry after each use..
 
NEVER leave your dish or wash cloths balled up in the tub or sink, they will mold and reak. They MUST be dried right away so they can be used over and over again.
ALSO, Please Note, ALL knitted dishcloths stretch when wet, so don't make them to big or they will be hard to handle...

Cherokee

                                    (In Memory of Grandma Grace / Cocky)
                                  Cherokee Dishcloth  Measures 8 1/2" X 9"

I came up with this dishcloth while knitting on the couch in the Cherokee Casino in Silom Springs OK. So I jotted down the numbers came home and whipped it up

YO = Yarn Over
K2 together = Knit 2 together

10 Needles
CO 36

Rows 1-3: Knit across

Row 4: Knit 2, YO, Knit 2 together, Knit 9 sts, YO, Knit 2 Together, Knit to end

Row 5: Repeat row 4 until cloth measures 8 1/2 " from beginning to needle

Rows 6-9: Knit across, cast off

NOTE: Yo can make this cloth 7" or 8" high, I like to make mine a little bigger because I give them away as gifts and never know for sure who's going to recieve this

NOTE:
This dishcloth can be made bigger, but I thought it looked pretty big as is, KNOWING that all knitted dishcloths stretch when wet.

ALSO, I use larger needles because the bigger the holes the quicker they dry so you won't have a moldy or meldew smell

Wheel Chair Wrap

This little wrap was designed specifically for the elderly - particularly those confined to wheelchairs or to bed. The short length prevents it from getting caught in wheels. The shape helps keep in on the shoulders where many elderly get cold. Being open down the front makes it easy for medical personnel to access arms for blood pressure readings and such.

Materials List
12 ounces of worsted weight yarn
H hook

Finished Size
Approximately 18 inches long (down the center back) and approximately 80 inches around the bottom edge

Gauge
14 dc = 4 inches
8 rows = 4 inches
Notes
V stitch = 1dc, ch1, 1dc

The Pattern
Chain 54

Row 1: dc in 3rd ch from hook, ch 1, 2 dc in next ch, *dc in next 11 ch, v st in next ch, repeat from * 2 times, dc in next 11 ch, 2 dc in next ch, ch 1, 1 dc in each of last 2 ch, ch 2, turn (58 dc and 5 ch 1 spaces)

Row 2: dc in next dc, ch 1, 2 dc in next dc, *dc in next 13 dc, V st in ch1 space, repeat from * 2 times, dc in next 13 dc, 2 dc in next dc, ch 1, dc in last dc and in top of turning ch, ch2, turn (8 sts increased).

Rows 3 - 28: repeat row 2, following established pattern, always increasing the number of dc between V sts by 2 (each row increases by a total of 8 sts).

Row 29: dc in next dc, ch 1, skip ch 1 space, dc in next dc, *ch 1, skip 1 dc and dc in next st, repeat from * to V st in previous row, ch 1, V st in ch 1 space of V st, ch 1, skip next dc, dc in next dc repeat from * across row to last dc. Ch 1, skip ch 1 space, dc in next dc, dc in last dc and in top of turning ch, ch 2, turn

EASY Crochet Prayer Shawl

Chain 51.
Row 1: half double crochet in 3rd chain from hook and in every chain
across. Chain 2, turn.
Row 2 and every row thereafter: half double crochet in every stitch
across. Chain 2, turn.
Continue until the shawl is as long as you are tall.
Add a fringe as desired to each end.

This is a very basic simple pattern, and turns out beautiful, especially when made with Lionbrand Homespun yarn or Hobby Lobby Very soft yarn.

Prayer Cloths

             "Praying Hearts, Comforting Others, One Stitch At A Time"


"Some people took handkerchiefs and clothes that Paul had used and put them on the sick. When they did this, the sick were healed and evil spirits left them. Acts 19:12 (NCV)

This is our opportunity to Bless another who may be Ill, Hurt, Depressed, Lonely or in need of Spiritual Comfort with our Prayer & Blessing Cloths.

Simple crochet or knit a cloth between 6" or 7" and enclose the following note for someone who is Ill or in need of Spiritual Comfort, or; Comfort in general. {Pattern's Below}


Dear _______,
Just a note of cheer, to let you know that I've been Praying for you. This Prayer cloth was made with many stitches of Love, and Prayer especially for "You". Prayers of Love, Healing, Comfort & Protection, have Annointed this cloth.

To use this cloth, hold it in your hand or place it on a particular body part, Raise one hand with your palm upward, and say this prayer: "Lord, I recieve this Healing accordng to Your Word. In Jesus Name. AMEN

You may also use this cloth for a loved one/family member. Washing the cloth will not remove the Blessing.

Please know that I am thinking of "You", and Praying for "You". You are a Special part of my life, and of the world.

Blessings_______


KEY:
It's Faith in Christ, Believing, & Prayer that does the Healing in our lives.
Your job is to Pray for the person "recieving" this cloth while your making this cloth, then when they recieve the cloth, it's their Faith in Christ & Believing His WORD that does the Healing.


This Project of LOVE was started Oct.1st,2001.
The Lord is the one who should and does receive the honor. The Lord is the hand that makes the glove move.
After much Prayer, God lead me to get involved and share this Ministery with those needing to be touched by HIS LOVE.

All gifts of Prayer & Blessing Cloths are made from love and donated to touch the life of one of God's Children from 0-to-99yrs.
Please give God all the Honor & Glory as He does (all) the work through me, I'm but His servant.


If you know of someone who is in need of one of our Prayer & Blessing
Cloths,  Please e-mail  me (  OzarkPs_91@yahoo.com  & put Prayer
Cloth in Subject line) with their Name, Address & Reason of
their need; ALL Prayer Cloths are FREE, [no charge, no questions,
Period].
Limit 1 per address.. USA only, postage outside the USA is just to high

NOTE: I have had people request several Prayer Cloths at one time. I have had to refuse because it is my feeling that when requesting more then 1 Prayer Cloth they are being sold for a profit and this goes against what this Ministry is all about. So PLEASE save us both the embarasment by requesting only 1 Prayer Cloth.

Thank You Lord for allowing me to be an ever so small part of this Love.

God holds "ALL" © to this Ministry of Love, & the Pattern's below - J.M.S.Q. 10/1/2001 - 2010

Hebrews 6:10 (NIV)
God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.
