My pastor is retiring at the end of June, and I want to make something really meaningful to say thank you. She has been like a mom/mentor to me, and we are really close. She is kinda hippyish, in her mid 60's, into environment and (obviously) Christianity, social justice stuff, gardening. My original plan was to make a cross stitch of the church, but I am running too short on time now.

Any ideas?

Can you think of anything that would be good for her in retirement like gardening stuff or something like that?

A cross stitch of the church would be nice, is there anyway you can make it a communal project with a few other members to get it done in time? 

If not what about some other crafty representation of the church or it's members?
