I really like the simplicity of the white on white and I really like the shade of pink on the flag Susan received!

I mailed mine out today to Jen Sew! I was just soooo happy I actually mailed out when I said I was going to!

I received today from silentblair and it is the COOLEST!



She used bright colors, per my wishes, and then used the word "Experiment" to try out some cool techniques.
1 - Bleach pen and fabric marker
2 - Sharpie tie-dye with rubbing alcohol
3 - Rubber stamping
4 - Free-motion stitching

It's so funny/psychic/coincidental that I just discovered the Sharpie tie-dye method after seeing a post here on Craftster about faux-batiking. So as YouTube does, I watched all the videos that were suggested along with the batik ones. And I was hoping for a Round 2 of this swap so I can try it out. I just love the message, the effort that went into making it and it will serve as a reminder to me to think outside the box!!

Here's the back view - just because:



I will show an action shot, when I receive the second one. I bought those sticky hooks that go on your wall and don't leave any residue to hang my flags on over sewing/craft table.

Yahoo! I love this swap!

so far all the flags are awesome!!!

I rec'd my seriously beautiful prayer flag today from SilentBlair! She chose a topic/phrase that has been close to my heart these past weeks. little background: i miscarried last year and recently found out i am pregnant...so this is a very dear prayer for me right now. <3

She used fabric from her own son's old clothes which is so touching and meaningful.
When I opened this up today, I got all choked up. I love it. <3
Thank you SilentBlair, for putting so much into this flag. It means a lot to me!

Gorgeous flags! I love that each one has clearly been made with so much love and care, and seems perfect for each recipient.

How perfect, taloola, and congratulations!

That silentblair used clothes from when her son was a babe is just a prayer in itself. And the dandelion image, I love that.
I'll be saying prayers for you, too, taloola Smiley

That is such a beautiful and sweet prayer flag, silentblair, and with taloola's story added to it, it has so much meaning.  Awesome.
