lol where else can you see wands and forest critters on a Saturday morning?


Here is the prayer flag I made for cmarion3...I used an old linen napkin and fabrics that I dyed from my shirbori dyeing phase...



I have not really made much that was not swap related...I know it is because I just want to sleep through winter!

nice--I like the interesting color mix and the loose parts of the sun rays...gives the piece a lot of texture...

OK...long story short...Wulf made this flag for me before realizing that he had chosen the wrong word (I almost did that a few times myself!)...he sent me the flag anyway, so lucky me actually got two from him!  I have to say that I am in awe of the stitching...and lately, with my new health kick program, this is exactly how I feel...LUMINOUS!

lol cmarion...I was also glad that Wulf kept that one for himself... Grin

I will post the one I got from you when I get home...the pictures are on my home computer...I did bring my actual flags to work to show them off...hmmm..maybe I can scan it... yes I can!

Here is the flag cmarion3 sent to me...nothing says RENEW like a just sprouting crocus bulb! (her words!)...and I agree...I wish the crocuses would start to bloom, but with a few feet of snow on the ground, they would not even show yet! Arghh--at least I have my lovely flag to look at!

I use diamond gloss to coat my beads as well...I buy those fat wooden skewers and then use an empty oatmeal box to dry the beads...kbrison, no worries...I did not buy a paper bead maker...I will stick to my own method of twirling beads while watching endless episodes of BBC mystery shows! Grin

I made 6 prayer flags...the only one I can show right now is the one I made for myself--it has a woven part that was fun to do...

Your" partner" had such an interesting concept and executed it wonderfully...it must have taken lots of relaxing hours to get that result!

And, speaking of your "partner"....Look what I got from Wulf! 




It is my favorite color, red... and done what seems to me to be an homage to my love of quilting...a ticker tape type of quilt, which I love!

Thank you for a wonderful addition to my collection of meaningful flags...my word was "Tolerance"...I have been told that in my pursuit of tolerance for all, I have left out tolerance for the ignorant and mean people...so I am trying to be a bit more understanding even towards the most intolerable of mankind...I doubt that it will deter me from speaking out, but maybe I will hold my tongue a bit...nah...

But, since I do want some changes in my life, I made my own flag with yet another meaningful word, "Change"...inspired by weaving from people like Ludi and sheepblue, I decided to alter some much loved batik with a bit of weaving...changing the fabric, so to speak...



I have two more flags to show off, but I will let the ones posted tonight bask in their glory until daylight!

Yofi--the Baba Yaga items are genius!  The comb is really a good idea, but the chicken leg mirror is fantastic! Grin

Also, the orange hats turned out wonderful!  You find the best patterns...so intricate looking...

I saw the Jane mitts..they turned out really nice as well...you do such nice cable work!

Happy Birthday cake to you!

I churned out two crochet hats just because my leftovers call to me and drive me crazy....





I have everything from socks to mitts on needles so in a few days, I will be finishing them --picture dump warning! Grin

Here are the two crochet hats I made using little balls of yarn:

This one is a partial ball of variegated blue/purple worsed wool, a small ball of purple wool, and then some plain blue.


This one is made with possum yarn, two tiny balls of leftover bulky noro wool, then more plain wool...the colors are slightly off, but they blend ok.


I keep leftover wools in the plastic jar and leftover sock yarn in the basket. I also have two more bins full of various little yarn balls...that's a lot of mixed hats.

I love the new big hats...they are so comfy and feel so artistic!  Love the color and the pattern!

I knit another hat as well...this time a cabled one!
