The bells on the Thankful flag are a great touch....wait, I think I can hear them tinkling in the breeze!
I love the color scheme and the bee on the leaf is BEEUTIFUL!

Such a clever idea to felt the fabric for the "beauty" flag!!!
The buttons are a pretty addition to the back.

I also received from Leslieshappyheart today!  She sent a gorgeous flag of fabric collage, love all the texture!  In the teeny little bottle is a slip of paper that says "be still"....how awesome is that?



Thank you! (sorry for the rather crappy picture, its a dark and stormy night here...)

I'm loving the bee on the thankful flag too and calluna's felted flag is spectacular!  I was hoping someone would do a felted flag....the shisha mirrors are a lovely touch Smiley

It's so hard to get a photo of that felted flag; I tried and didn't have much luck getting the color either! (and at the moment I can't upload photos...) It's a really shimmery, iridescent fiber batt that is lovely in person but simply does not photgraph well.  Smiley I'm pretty sure this is the original fiber, from loop on Etsy.
Yes, the flap on the back is shisha embroidery, and that's about all I did with the back. I kept dithering between "less is more" and "embellish/finish more"!

This crafter is out of service most of the rest of 2015 due to a wild schedule, swapping once in a while when I can't fight the feeling anymore ("I've forgotten what I started fighting fooooor...").
Personal swaps: I have lots of home-grown rosemary and white sage available, plus altered journals.

Not in this swap but had to take a peek at the gallery.

Everything in here is gorgeous.

The flag that Taloola received and the story behind it brought a tear to my eye. How special is it that the maker used her own son's clothing to make that flag? I wish you all the best in growing your little one.

Gorgeous felted flag. This is the time I wish I could feel texture over the internet! Cheesy

Lovely 'be still' flag. So many textures, and I love the bird!

Thanks, silentblair, but I think it would take an earthquake to make those bells tinkle...I sewed the whole thing onto heavy canvas, so it ain't flappin'!!

I'm glad you like the "Be Still" flag, alteredmommy!  I loved making it.  I find that I can be much more creative with fabric when I don't worry about finishing the edges!

Wow - Leslie's two flags are amazing, Phizzychick's flag is just gorgeous, and I love calluna's felted flag. Beautiful work guys.

Super cute pic of little man, silentblair - it's always a toss up whether I'll get jekyll or hyde with my little guy, and you never know what will set off one or the other!

One more amazing flag to add to the gallery!  Mine arrived from Shannon at the end of last week. 



It represents harmony and tranquility...  Sticking your toes into peaceful water.  Believe me the sentiment couldn't be more appropriate!  I absolutely love it.  The applique is fabulous.  The background fabric is gorgeous.  I LOVE IT!

Thanks Shannon.
