Great flag, Susan, perfect for those we just take for granted are there to serve us!

- MaryColleen, I know how you feel - I feel that same way when I swap, most every time!  Wishing I could re-do or add-to!  I'll bet your prayer flag to Susan is just as special! 

 Cool

That firefighter flag is really great and it's really awesome it's going to hang at the station!

I received from Waggonswest before I left for work on Saturday and am just now able to post pics.

First of all she sent me this flag with an angel and the word 'love' on it. I am a spiritual person who grapples with my religious views and have for some time now. My older sister is battling cancer and I pray daily for her. I asked in my questionnaire to have a flag to represent those prayers.


She also sent me a flag for my sister. She's going to be visiting me in a few weeks so I'll show her it then. If she wishes to take it back home with her I want her to. Otherwise I'll hang it outside with mine. (My sister lives in an apartment in Chicago so not sure if she'll have a place to hang it.)


Thank you so much, Waggonswest! I love my flags!

Shannon,  So glad you liked them.  I was a bit stressed after seeing the lovely and substantial flags that have been posted so far.  They are all so beautiful and so finished.  I was really thinking about making something fluttery to catch the slightest breeze and send good wishes on their way. 

The all white flag  is hard to photograph.  Here is another look at.  It is one of my digitizing attempts and I actually had to create stitches.  That is a first for me. 



I can't wait to see the rest of the flags!  There is already so much variety.  What a fun swap!

Those flags are both wonderful, waggonswest!  They really embody the original idea of the prayer flags, to be light and airy.

Very very wonderful, waggonswest. That angel is beautiful and I love the stamping and threading on the other flag.

I love the white-on-white flag! I've been working on getting more colour into my flag, and this goes in the opposite direction. And I hadn't really thought about angels on flags, but it really resonates with me. It would be a good thank-you for prayers answered, for example.
