1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Branch Weaving on: March 27, 2015 02:14:33 PM
Thank you so much for posting, Ludi.  I've had a lot of stuff going crazy right now and pics completely slipped my mind.  I love my little gorgeous branch!  No wonder it was so hard, you used such fine thread!  I did several versions with yarn and they took hours and hours each, I can't imagine how long yours must have taken.  I like the delicate weaving patterns you did with the green & white thread, and also with the purples. 



I love the ombre effect of the greens.  <3



I tried to capture a super close up to show the intricate patterns



Thank you so much.  Sorry it took me so long to finally get pics up!!  Embarrassed

I received my last flag (yay!) - a lovely "LOVE" flag from holistic knitter across the pond!



The stitching is really lovely:


Thank you so much, holistic knitter!

And, so many thanks to our lovely hostess, stellato_escuro - I know this was a lot to keep up with !  Smiley

I've created a couple of perfectly acceptable but rather boring versions, am planning to attempt some of my "what else?" ideas this weekend.

I had a flash of inspiration last night and want to do a trial run with the concept tonight.  I hope it looks as cool as I'm envisioning it!

I'd be down for another round!  I want to encircle my home office with prayer flags!!

More beauties to share!  I received from our lovely hostess stellato_escuro and also from chameleonhound.

Both have gorgeous hand painting on them, and both on BATIKs!!!  All my partners hit their batik stashes for me.   Grin Grin Grin

First up, "Grounded" from stellato_escuro.  I love the glittery dots and the mandala-like pattern you did on it.  Gorgeous. The colors on this are really vibrant, my phone seems to have washed them out  Huh  stellato_escuro, if you have better pics, please share them!




And, Peace / Serenity from ChameleonHound.  There is a super detailed hand painted flower (lotus, maybe?) on this one.  Beautiful!



Thank you so much; I love them!!

Oooooh partners, partners, partners!!  I found a REALLY COOL (ok, I'd better not over sell it...  but it's pretty neat) branch.  I'm really excited about this swap.

The CALM is indeed calming...what beautiful trim...shiny..what is it?
The trim is just some nice ribbon that I had.  I actually bought it 13+ years ago... I was going to make myself some wedding Teva sandals; I was married on a beach and thought I would cover or replace the straps with that ribbon, but I'd never used it and thought it would look nice on the flag.  I struggled with keeping the decoration of the flag in matching with the word (calm)!  I started down a whole 'nother path, which was NOT working, so scrapped the first try and did that one on the second.  Much better!  Smiley

Ooh welded branch piece... That sounds awesome!  I'm trying to think if there are other things you could use in lieu of branches (particularly because everything here is STILL (still!!!!!!) covered in snow and I am about to go start pruning a live tree to get a hold of practice branches).  The only thing that I would have in my home that I can think of is hangars.  Which is sort of... yuck.  I mean, I guess maybe some folks have really nice hangars, and I do have some colorful plastic ones, but... no.  Off to poke around my home scavenging for practice "branches"!  Ideas are welcome!!    Wink

artsycandice, I love the idea of using wire for the word!  I always struggle with how to do words because my embroidery skills are pretty atrocious (things wind up a bit cock-eyed).  Using another medium to do the word is a nice option that I'd never thought of.
