I love the immediacy of the "Positive Thoughts" flag. You only have to catch sight of it out of the corner of your eye, Susan, and those grouchy urges will flee! Sonjaboo, isn't it great that we all used flowers? I wasn't consciously thinking of you under all that snow, but it must've been at the back of my mind!
And rscowtown, it was very clever of you to hang top bit of text off your "Jesus" flag. It's otherwise so simple, and that little thing makes you look at it more carefully.
Lucky me, I received TWO flags today, from alwaysinmyroom and jenleahlynn.
Jenleahlynn did "Boundless" for me, and I love the cleanness of the silhouetted figure against the delicately coloured background. If you look closely, you'll see that there are mountains sketched in with very fine embroidery.
And for this one I have
to show the back, because it has this hidden mandala on it. Is it dyed, painted, stamped? I can't tell, but the colours are beautifully subtle.
This is from alwaysinmyroom, and she used fabric printed by our own sheepblue! The sun absolutely glows in the middle, and the few lines of stitching stitching accent the trees perfectly. You can't really see in the photo, but those beautiful, big, rectangular beads are a deep red-amber.
Thank you both so much - I love both of these. They're so different, and yet both so perfect!
