41  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Prayer Flag Swap Round 6 Gallery on: April 26, 2016 04:29:19 PM
What amazing stuff! I think I missed a few pages in the Gallery and I'll have to go back and look. So there may be even more to enjoy Cheesy

I'm also a convert to water-soluable stabilizer, and I had the same problem as you did,fatewineroses - I marked it in white for white embroidery. Mistake - I couldn't tell where I'd stitched or not! Much better to have used a light colour like pink or yellow.

Your portrait of Sophie is absolutely lovely. And such beautiful stitching! I find I'm using single strands of floss more often too. I like the amount of control it gives me. Of course it means a lot more stitches if you want to cover large areas, but the overall effect can be worth it.

I'll try to get everyone's status updated tonight. Thanks to all who've sent or let me know if they're going to be late. Keep me informed!

What a great treat you've given us, Susan! Thanks so much for organizing another of these great swaps. Coming right after another round of prayer flags, it's going to be almost overwhelming to watch the Gallery unfold! I was thinking about binding the pages I've received so far, but there didn't seem to be enough yet, but this should make it into a proper little book. I'm going to get my prayer flags out of the way and then I'll sign up.

Thanks to everyone who's sent early. Kiss And for the rest of us, a reminder that tomorrow is send-out day. PM me to confirm that you've sent, or to let me know you're going to be late.

Quaggy, I hope that your run of bad luck will have ended with your finishing the swap. What a story with the tow truck driver! He is indeed lucky to have got off without being charged for leaving the scene, and I'm surprised the company tried to brush it off so casually. They just didn't know who they were up against!

And rscowtown, don't worry if you have to send a couple of days late. It sounds like you've had a rough week too!

Absolutely wonderful stuff piling up here! Fatewineroses, your embroidery is so beautifully tidy and just right. How did you mark it out on the black fabric? I always have so much trouble with that.

And your three flags, gigglygirl, are the happiest things I've seen all month! I just want to make dozens of little grinning flower faces and stick them up everywhere. Grin

Thanks to so many people for sending early - I'll get the status list updated to be ready for everyone (including me) who'll send tomorrow.

Quaggy, the universe just seems to be trying to make it as difficult as possible for you to mail your swap packages! I hope the threatened deluge doesn't happen, and there are no further incidents in your neighbourhood.

As for when to post your own flag, I'd say do it whenever you want. You can wait until your partner posts, or post it together with the flag you receive. Or just share it now so we can enjoy! No need to PM me about it either way - I'll watch the Gallery and update your status accordingly.

My highly experimental idea for the shrine box is working out extremely well. Several parts that I never imagined would fit went together almost perfectly. I broke it twice doing something stupid, but it glued back together well and nobody will know. I haven't done a final assembly yet, because I always like to do as much of the painting, finishing and so on while it's apart, because it's always so much easier than reaching inside with a brush, or trying to apply paper onto the top of the interior. And one of the things I'm doing to the outside just can't be done except with the pieces laying flat on the workbench.

Now I have to work on the interior contents more. I have an idea, and I've looked at a few things from my stash, but none of them screamed YES! But sometimes they just need to be convinced.

After all that talk of great things to embellish patches with, I ended up using absolutely nothing. They're all embroidery. Grin Oh well, next time!

Tried to send today but I got my time wrong and the post office was closed. I'll to it tomorrow.

I love these - they're so different, but each has a lovely feeling all its own. I especially like the colours of space - did you do the stars with masking liquid?

Wow! What a great start! I always love the incredible variety of these flags.

I think I've updated the status list correctly. I'm not sure my "descriptive" method is as simple as I'd hoped. Sad (Sorry, craftlylittlemonkey - I somehow missed you on both partners lists!)  Embarrassed

Sorry I've been a bit AWOL. Time gets away from you quickly if you aren't watching it every moment!

Great to see so many people sent (and received!) so soon. It's much more fun with larger swaps like this when the Gallery is spread out more, rather than everyone posting over the same few days. I'll update the status list for everyone who's sent and received. Remember to PM me and your partner when you send, and when you receive.
