That's beautiful, waterbaby! Is the horse drawn, or painted, or what?

Thanks, Leslie!  The horse is based on a rubber stamp, which has both solid and "open" geometric areas.  It was lightly stamped with a permanent ink and heat set, the solid portions were colored over with a reddish brown Sharpie (and a little black on the rear quarters), and then I colored in the geometrics and along the back and rear, also with Sharpies.

You had also asked about the hands on the flag I made for ShannonMN, which were, indeed, appliqued.

And thanks to those who've left positive comments about both my flags -- I've been having connectivity issues or I'd have acknowledged your kind words before now!

My deepest apologies to Cinnamoon for taking so long to post pictures of the beautiful prayer flag she sent to me:



It is beautifully stitched onto a piece of cotton batting -- if I ever decide to put it outside, the birds will take it for nesting, which is a neat idea -- the light being sent into the world on the beaks of birds.  The words say, "In Him there is no darkness at all"

I need to share the wonder of the words Cinnamoon chose for this flag.  I am subbing as the church organist at the moment and one of the hymns we sang this last Sunday was "I want to walk as a child of the light."  I was on my way to rehearse when I picked up the mail.  Immediately, the refrain started in my mind, "In him there is no darkness at all. The night and the day are both alike.  The Lamb is the light of the city of God.  Shine in my heart, Lord Jesus!"  Is that not incredible?!!!

Thank you, Cinnamoon.  This is a lovely reminder that I am not alone!

I love the "no darkness" flag from Cinnamoon; and I love that hymn--we sing it at our church too, and it is one of my favorites!

wow, such really great flags have been added!

i received such a pretty flag from zuliblu. i'm hoping for a moment to be able to get a picture up soon. my mom has been in the hospital for the past three weeks, so every spare moment, i've been spending with her.  Embarrassed

even though the other flags aren't meant for me, they have all been touching me more than i can say. they are giving me hope that she will be ok.

anyway, thank you for the lovely flag, zuliblu. i hope you are feeling better, too!

A2K, that hymn was running through my head the whole time as I was sewing it! I'm glad you like the flag.  Smiley

Finally have a chance to look through the gallery since the first few postings.

I love the layers and textures in them

oh, CraftyMamaBee . . . my heart did a little happy dance there, the flag is fantastic.

Rosie1981 the flag you did for Wulf brings back memories of middle school when I had to memorize that poem -- makes me smile. (as far as the universe . . . one of my used television quotes if from Seinfeld's "serenity now" episodes)

Jen Sews got the flag I sent her, yay! I was worried it had gotten lost in the mail. Her camera is broken though, so I'll post a picture of what the flag looks like:
