SonjaBoo, I love the ? dictionary? page butterfly you've added such beautiful placement, and your metal letters double the emphasis- double the prayers? Smiley

I love the way the lace design shows so beautifully in your flag, I think it shows respect for the creator of the original sewing.

Wulf, your flag for yourself looks like my dream of a garden. All those lovely shades of green and different textures smoothed together: lush and rich and peaceful and a touching quote too.

Calliemae, your bliss flag with the ocean and shells is splendid. I love the effect of the wooden waves and the seashells on the beach are sweet.

SonjaBoo, your explore flag is just down my street, I love space and this reminds me of all my childhood hopes. It is beautifully conceived and finished.

Smaart, your own flag is so meaningful. Thank you for sharing the elements behind it. It is beautiful too. I like your handprinted fabric, what an amazing range of things you've used to create it.

Fatewineroses, your abundance flag is amazing, your embroidery skills are excellent and your colour choices work so very well together.

craftymamabee, your harmony flag is lovely. I like the way you've made the 4 elements and it truly does create a harmonious whole.

redpopsickles,  I love the tree on your growth flag: it reminds me of the apple tree at my old house, which grew in much the same way.

Quaggy, your dream flag is beautiful. Did you wire bend your own word? It is perfect. You're another craftster who has a really good eye for colour: the contrasts are perfect. The dream-catchers are lovely too and the feathers, just the perfect finishing touch.

CraftyMamaBee, your Ailurophile flag is incredible. What a great use of serendipitous material and to highlight all the cats and then add another one, just takes it to the next level.

Arcadian Driftwood, I love the wood pattern you've achieved on the relax flag and the frayed edges look just like a broken off piece of wood: perfect!

PerfectlyBohemian: you have a lovely self made flag, the felted background is splendid and I'm amazed by your awesome stamp-making skills.

Abbeeroad: your flag for alwaysinmyroom is really innovative, the binocular visions are wonderful as well as new, cool painting in such small spaces as well.

Alwaysinmyroom, you have such a talent for colour, what an amazingly appropriate flag for cheer: how could anyone fail to be cheered by it Smiley

Renstar, your wonder flag really is a wonder: such an impressive dragon, beautifully rendered.

rscowtown, I'm sure your lucky flag will summon lots of good fortune for Smmart, it is lovely and clear, a very good design choice.

PerfectlyBohemian, your flag for arcadian driftwood has your lovely felted background again and you've lifted it further by those great sweater flowers and beads for the centres. I love the 3 dimensionality and the charm of it.

Alwaysinmyroom, your vast flag makes me dream of horizons of eternity and also makes me want to try the cut away effect, although I know I'll never be as effective at it as you are!

RSCowtown, your rain flag is so sweet, you have such a neat hand with the embroidery and I adore those tiny rain beads.

calliemae, your home flag is beautiful, so many different embroidery stitches and such a fun piece of grass.

loves2experiment, your self made flag is just what  your own theme needs, it must have taken so much focus to make all those tiny stitches and your circles are geometrically perfect as well as aesthetically perfect!

PerfectlyBohemian, stamping fabric is such a contrast to all that lovely texture that I've already said how much I love and you've chosen so very apt a range of materials for Pastiche.

cmarion, bliss and moment are  such contrasts for very similar materials and techniques, you really show how much of a difference design makes and these clearly have a lot of thoughtful design in them.

rscowtown, your own flag is charming, such a lovely neat flower again and those tiny enchanting rain drops.

I hope to be showing my own flags soon.

I'm sorry I'm a day late: I was so bushed from my trip, all I could do was work & sleep. Oh, and make emergency repairs to the car <boo>.

Here is the picture of the gorgeous flag that Seeuudee sent:


Isn't it wonderful!

I love that she and I share the same experience of our gardens as space, and although I forgot to mention it on my questionnaire, I love texture and the gorgeous crochet flower is a great way of adding texture. The beady roots give just the right amount of sound when it moves and it goes so happily with my honeysuckle that I think it has found it's permanent home already.

Thank you Seeuudee, I love it.

I got my flag through the post today from Seeuudee: It is splendid and I love it, but I won't be able to post pictures until Monday or Tuesday.

It is warm and wonderful and meaningful and I had a letter, explaining to me all the reasons why she chose the things she did. There is crochet and beads and buttons and printing and embroidery and all kinds of different wonderful and it will go in my garden, where I will see it everyday and feel the good wishes it was made with.

I promise pictures as soon as I can.

Quaggy, your Wild flag is brill! I love your tree and leaves and the frog is just amazing! and the beaded fringe is so much fun.

Wendiek, your own flag is lovely: the pocket is such an ingenious idea and the crochet rose is gorgeous, just the thing to remind me of the glories of my garden.

Fatewineroses, your embroidery skills are amazing and the story you shared is so touching.

Abbeeroad, you have been looking into my brain and pulling out all the best things that I couldn't see for myself! Pi is such a perfect representation of infinity and I could never have thought about it.

Cmarion, I love how rich and luscious your flowers are, thriving blooms indeed, and your paper bead insects are smashing.

Craftylittlemonkey, the shisha on your flag is beautiful, but the ombre threaded background is even more so. So lovely that I don't have words for it.

Calliemae, I love your butterfly rising from it's knitted cocoon, such a great way of getting texture into a flag.

Abbeeroad, your quaint flag is lovely, it tells a story to me, reminding me of watching the night sky with all my friends on a camping trip and telling tall stories of 40 foot badgers and their siblings(I guess you had to be there)

loves2experiment, another pocket flag, but this time with a teesha more style patch! What a lovely set of colours you've chosen: strong, to match the theme- wonderful.

Marion, you've certainly got the essence of imbrication in your flag: it's gorgeous, and your web of life seems to dance out of the screen.

I love the 3-Dness of alwaysinmyroom's flag and the way that the flowers just fall naturally onto the white area: you've made them pop out of the fabric and into life Smiley

A gorgeous ruffly flag and a wonderful sentiment.

gigglygirl: I do love your faces on the flowers and that flag is so Easter, lovely. How do you get your faces so beautifully even: I can never get my embroidered faces to look so nice, my eyes never match, so much so that all my faces wink these days!
