Thanks, susanab, for saying everything I would like to say!  Grin I don't even know where to begin with all the praise and well-wishes I would like to shower on everyone (so maybe I should make a flag on behalf of all of you!  Wink) I love this gallery; I hope it gets into the Best Of 2012. There's been something on every page, it seems, that completely touches my heart.

The instructions from Cloth Paper Scissors and the Prayer Flag Project website talked about how quickly these flags could be cranked out (half an hour's time, instant gratification, etc), and while that's possible with some techniques, it's clear that so much more time and thought and heart went into each flag in this swap. Everyone's created something so special and heart-felt...and you've all humbled me with your skills!

Rosie1981, I love the different lettering styles you used on your flag; they are the perfect compliment to the quote you chose to use.

theatreorchid, you flag looks like it was designed to flutter in the breeze!  I love the long "streamers".

Calluna, I agree that this swap is more special than most; it's the personal quality of each prayer flag that makes the whole thing so meaningful.


One more little thing I need to mention:
TODAY IS SUSANAB'S BIRTHDAY!!  Happy Birthday to you, Susan!!

Happy Birthday Susan.


Rosie I am glad you got it. I loved that design but just haven't had a chance to use it yet. I will use it more from now on, it stitches out so well.

I recieved from Kookaloo_star today but it was dark when I got home from TAFE so I will take photos tomorrow when the sun is shinning.


So many awesome flags and each one has such perfection and meaning to it.

All I can say is that I have pinned quiet a few Wink

and thanks for all the kind words on the flags I have made, they really made themselves.

I got my second flag today, from Rosie1981.



In addition to my list, I said "do whatever you like" and she did this beautifully minimal forest sketch in oil pastels, and embroidered the text on it. (Unfortunately the photo doesn't show how textural the embroidery is in real life.)

Thanks, Rose! I love Robert Frost, and I like how you only needed three words to suggest the entire poem.

First off Happy Belated Birthday Susan!!! I'm so sorry I wasn't on the boards to see yesterday! I hope you had a fantastic day!!!

Secondly, I received my play from Jen Sews!!! I actually got it yesterday but our internet was down for most of the day.... and I couldn't upload from my phone.... So here it is in all its glory! She made a flag for my daughter! She is just getting big soo fast! She's almost 2! It feels like yesterday we brought her home from the hospital!



She's our little bird! Thanks so much Jen for the amazing flag! The flag is drawn with crayons and I'm quite sure she said watercolors too? ... She was worried about rain.... but I have a special place in our sun room for it! So no worries!
