What was your inspiration?
Our new pastor was being ordained. I decided to make her a stole using the symbol for the current theme for the United Church of Christ, "God is Still Speaking..." I chose the colors based on three of the four liturgical colors of the year: red, purple, and green (white, the fourth, just didn't go, and Yvette usually wears a white robe). She received it today and loved it. She also told me that 10 of the visiting clergy wanted the phone number of the person who made it. :-)
What are you most proud of?
That I designed it myself without a pattern, because I refused to spend 40 dollars for the only pattern I could find. I also love the way the colors blend.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Go for it. It was very easy to do.
