I was asked to make the ordination stole for a former intern at our church. She asked for periwinkle to be included. I had a hard time finding that shade, but settled for this. It is, along with the white, from Michael Miller's Fairy Frost line. It has a plasticized type finish to the printing that is a bit irritating to work with, but works good on garments as it resists oils and stains from the skin.
The design is very abstract. I put a lot of thought into these, as the white stoles are used at weddings and funerals, and at Easter and Christmas and other special times in the liturgical year.
My mother was here this weekend and was invaluable in helping with the handwork of the binding.
