My last prayer flag was received and I also had to make one for myself..Grin.

I used the fabric I made earlier and cut it into prayer flag size and embellished it.  I needed something cheerful to hang up as our spring seems to be rainy and reary...




Here is the one I made for Abbeeroad.  It is made from some old denim and batik fabrics in reverse applique.

I received my box of sunshine just when I needed it!  This has been a trying week, so a little cheerfulness was greatly appreciated!  I was going to wait for a nice sunny day to take pictures, but according to hubby, that could be a while!  Cry

A bit of a funny back story---apparently, when I set up my PINTEREST Sunshine board, I had two...one was secret and that is where I loaded most of the pictures for this swap!  Poor ChameleonHound...she had only one thing to look at on the first board that I set up...wreaths! lol

Well, I did not mean to limit her to wreaths, but I am super glad she did not mind!  I really needed a spring wreath for our studio door where the students come for lessons (they expect it each season!)...

So, here is my awesome spring wreath...she included a fairy door that I used as a back drop in the wreath pictures...I may or may not use it this way...I have a fairy garden I am also working on for the kids...oh, and the wreath lights up!  I could not get a good pic of that, but...



Here is the door separately...perfect for what I need!



She also sent a bunch of extras (and some fell out of the coloring book, which is my new obsession...)...bee washi tape, cool metallic paper, seeds, a paper for me to use in collage work, stickers, fabric fat quarters, and a cool cracker that is suppose to be used outside (I assume it has glitter or other stuff that should not scatter in the house! Grin)...

Thanks so much for my happy spring box!  And, you know I also appreciate the ribbons and the card!  I am known to use everything! Grin

Abbeeroad and I have swapped a few times...so I think we challenge each other to come up with fabric pages and prayer flags that are different in technique  or that are of different designs.  Well, this round, she delivered!  She chose my word "EXPLORE".  Not only did I get some her metal, I got some cool painted and stitch fabric.  The two circles are her take on looking through binoculars to see the world out there...

I also love the additional fabric added to give the fringe ends.



A close up of the wonderful metal and painted scenery!



I made my own flag using some handmade fabric from leftover quilt scraps and threads. I needed something sunny to help me believe it is spring since our weather is so rainy and dreary:



I love this swap and was very pleased with the variety I got from ALL my partners! Grin

Thanks, Wulf, for hosting this creative and challenging swap!

I received some wonderful TM patches from DaphadillyArt!

I didn't think I was going to post them today as I had election duty and no camera...but, I scanned them into a printer..

Here they are!  Love the two little birdies and the tiny ladybugs....but my favorite is my initial!  I am going to use that one in the front cover of my journal!





ha ha Aren't those two birds just so goofy cute?  Thanks so much for swapping with me and adding to my journal cover!

I finished both of Prayer flags for a swap, but I still have to make one for myself, which I find the hardest!

Here is one I sent and which was received. Lots and lots of stitching.  I used a vintage hanky for the back and for the lace.  I love making these.  For those of you who want to play with fabrics, might I suggest the Fabric Journal Pages Swap?  Really, you can't believe how fun and easy it is to create so many different ways with fabric!

Glad you like it!  I used an old linen hanky for the back and to add the lace. My partner liked old mixed with new, so the fabric is actually new.  The way the flowers are done is that you cut out a duplicate and sort of set them off a bit on top of the original and sew it one.  One of the flowers is stuffed with some filling so it puffs out.

I had a lot of fun making that one, but it is a bit time consuming since I stitched just about everything on it, sort of like a big Teesha Moore pillow/patch/poptart!  I won't be making myself one of those...lol.

I think gigglygirl was trying to show the hanky on the back.  Here it is:

I received a nice surprise in the mail yesterday!  Look at this happy garden/spring themed prayer flag!  Love the colors and the cute little flower faces!  My partner, gigglygirl, did a fine job of adding to my collection!

Usually, to keep from distortion, I save the image first and then bring it in to flip...not sure why, but phone images do get squished! Grin
