I received an amazing prayer flag from Laurel / rscowtown today.  I just love this flag so much!



Lotus flower carefully done in many different thread colors... swoon!



Petite beading all along the edge... such a nice added touch.



And, of course... batiks, my favorite... What can I say?  Love.

I got notice from Pioneer9 that she received her flag today, with a request to post pics since she does not have a camera.  Here is the flag I made for her word, "Wonder".



I'd commented on the thread about how to make gold shantung silk fabric... Here it is, as the sun!   Grin



Also... GAH to that stupid white thread hanging on to the text.  It bothers me every time I look at these pics!  But I don't have any other pics, so these will have to do.

Wow!  Wulf, I loooooove your life flag, and alwaysinmyroom I love the inspired idea to "change" your fabric to reflect your theme word.  And I just love batiks!  Beautiful.

All my flags are on their way today, so I wanted to post the pic of the flag I made for myself for my word "Joy".  Does the color look familiar?   Cheesy  Purple is definitely one of my favorites!!


I have to admit that I finished mine last, so I was working on it last night (right up to the deadline!).  I think I want to maybe add a couple more hearts to the empty-ish spaces to fill it out a bit more.  Or maybe not.

I had to smile when I read this:

Thanks for that info...I actually have a woodburning pen...I never thought to use it like this...maybe because I sort of like my house and don't want to burn it down... Grin

I left six eggs boiling on the stove for over two hours last week...I have been banned from using anything with a heat source...

Want to know how to make gold shantung silk?  Leave your iron set down on silver shantung silk, and forget about it and walk away for about :10.  That may also be a clue about one small component of one of the flags that went out today  Grin

I love the fairy fetish and don't find it creepy at all.  There's something very beautiful about it...  But then, maybe I'm a bit creepy  Cheesy

Some folks had asked about the dodo (thank you!)...  Here are a couple of pics:



I actually just taught myself to crochet, so it was fun making something.  I used the pattern here and modified it to make & connect the two heads. http://www.crochetme.com/media/p/89690.aspx

Thanks for the kind comments.

Unfortunately I didn't get any photos of the beaded dragonfly before I sent it on.  I made the wings using wire and tape for the basic frame shape and melted 3 different colors of crayon into hot glue to cover the frame, giving it a marbled color.  It took several days of heating with a heat gun, working, retouching, leaving, revisiting, after 3 prior (failed) attempts at the wings to get them done.  I liked the glossy-translucent look of them when they were done.

I am loving all the flags so far.  So many flags = so much joy!!

I received a gorgeous flag from Pioneer9 today, for my word "Grace".  I love everything about it - the amazing, detailed embroidered flower, the sparkly lettering of the word, the colors... It is perfect.



I need to learn what stitch this is...  I think 2015 will be the year that I start working on learning embroidery!  I know how to french knot... but that's about it.   Grin



You can *just* make out the sparkles...


So beautiful.  <3

I'm having a problem uploading pictures  Angry

I'm so sorry, I'll have my husband figure out the problem when he gets home....if I haven't been able before then.

I think I've got it....

I knew as soon as I opened my package that cabaute had seen my Pinterest  Wink

I got an incredibly detailed crocheted mushroom and SIX of the cutest little felted acorns (with real acorn caps) that came in a little box with a Sabre Tooth Tiger on it.

Thank you so much, I love them all!!


(Oh no! I didn't realize they were blurry...I'll get some pictures with the other camera...So Sorry...I'll get them up as soon as I can)

Did you get the mermaid as well?  Smiley

I was all excited about this idea and went out in the yard to find a stick to practice on... And realized everything is covered in about a foot of snow, still.   Cheesy  Hopefully it will melt in the next few days so I can give it a try!!
