Okay folks, prepare your eyes for a feast of goodness! I was very blessed to have P_E_S_T hear my calling for a partner and to have her answer it, for she has been a superb partner and I feel a wonderful kindred connection with her! YAY for this IYP swap, my first! Won't be my last I shall think!
First let me link to her post about this unique book she made me: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433045.msg5187802#msg5187802
I haven't participated in the prayer flag swaps but I love what I see... she had a sewing mishap and being the inventive recycling upcycling goddess that she is, she created me a prayer flag book! I will put my fave pics here but visit her link for more!
LOVE this owl night sky one
This is so neat, love the mended pages and color
Like the 3D quality to this girl and the deep red
The awesome end piece!!!! my fave
next for my love of gnomes she felted me a wee one who decided to make his home in a tree, I am to hang him from my ceiling somewhere... so he can look down about the place
I was so very happy and squealed with delight at these happy wee pixies aloft on their dragonfly steeds!!!! I LOVE DRAGONFLIES... so very cute, and nature inspired and decorated... love the wee braided hair!
Lastly she made me a painting inspired by her sons's fave school song:
What you don't see here is some cool homemade papers she sent as well as two lovely tourist collector London spoons for my daughters spoon collection! She graciously gave me her pics to post since I had been busy painting and attending appointments this week and headed back to work now this coming week... thank you partner for being tremendously wonderful!
