I love Craftster Prayer Flag Swaps...especially when you are in a group of 6 and make a flag for everyone, including yourself and then get amazing flags back in the mail. Words were assigned and away we flew. So here are the prayer flags.

Freedom: Red/green silk back with floss and bead dandelion seeds



Two Grow Flags: Cotton back with rough edge applique and beads. There are two because I made the lighter one first, then realized that my partner did not like pastels, so made the brighter one. They both are wonderful and it was fun to do the same in a different palette...I kept the pastel one, luck me.



Silence: Silk again with torn fabric trees overlaid with organza ribbon machine embroidered with SH-H-H and SILENCE and QUIET. With a few beads.



Create: Cotton back and torn fabric strip and beads. Overlay is an antique lace curtain that has seen better days.



Persistance: Silk back with a rope of various fibers and yarns growing to circle the moon. And beads.



Jump: My word and my flag. Silk and cotton and beads and jump!
