11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Prayer Flag Swap Round SO - 6/10 on: June 20, 2017 06:57:35 PM
Wow, what great flags in here! I love the little red upholstery fabric flowers, and those radiating stitch flags are so great! No wonder you love that silk thread - it just glows. And using Inktense pencils on fabric? Shocked I had no idea! Must try that immediately - I love them on paper. Such intense colours.

So I received my flag from cmarion3 last week, and somehow kept being blocked from posting it. What a terrific trio of tattered tatting she made for us all! Cheesy

I love the spiraling of the narrow lace in all of these. It's especially perfect for my phrase, "Go Within".

Carol mentioned in her card that she had a 35 litre bin of vintage lace, and I thought "Wow, that's a LOT!" Then I realized I actually have two 15 litre bins, so I guess I can't make comments. Embarrassed

So then yesterday, I got my second flag, this symphony in green from Averia:

I love crazy quilting, and these green pieces and the stitching connecting them are so perfect. You almost can't see it in this photo, but there's a copper wire tree floating in the middle of the flag. Thanks so much for this!

And then my own flag. Like a lot of people, I had trouble coming up with an idea, but I finally got it worked out on Thursday evening, but I didn't have time to start it. I had to go to Ottawa for work over the weekend, so it didn't get worked on at all. But what I made when I got back has absolutely no relation to what I had originally intended - an entirely new idea took over and I did the whole thing in about two hours. I was quite surprised when I stepped back and looked at it!

While I was in Ottawa I had time to go the Canadian History Museum, where there is an amazing painting on the domed ceiling of one of the galleries, "Morning Star" by Alex Janvier. When I saw it, I thought "That's what I want my prayer flag to be!" So when I got home I started gathering up bits and scraps of fabrics, ironed Wonder Under onto them, and pieced them together. As I was working, I kept trying to think of what inspiring word I would add, but in the end I decided it just didn't need one. The image is inspiration enough. And tomorrow is the Summer Solstice, so it was meant to be.

That's a great journal, Sharalee! I love how everyone creates a junk journal in basically the same way, but the results are so different! The way your stained pages came out is great - I usually try to make them all even, but I like your "messy" look too.

One is done (and pretty fabulous) but the other is still in progress (because I was over-confident). Probably won't send til Sunday. And I admit my own flag is going to be late. I'm always a lousy swap partner for myself! Grin

I'm definitely one of the waverers, but I've finally had to admit I just can't join this swap, no matter how much I'd like to. I've got several big UFOs that I've absolutely gotto get finished before the end of the summer. So I'll have to just sit back and enjoy the Gallery.  Sad

I agree!  It's beautiful, Wulf!  I'd love to know more about that cover.

Thanks, all! I'll follow the example of some of our other swap participants, and make a post in the Papercraft board about it.

One is about 90% done. Well, maybe 80%. The other is sketched out on the fabric, but I haven't started the actual work. My own is still a vague cloud of uncertainty.

I'm the lucky partner!  Grin It's even more fabulous in person, too.

I was thinking about my flags as I was laying in bed half-asleep this morning, and I think I had a good idea for my own. Unfortunately, I can't remember it at all now.  Angry

A sender already! People are so quick. I just realized I hadn't given any thought to the flag I'll make for MYSELF. That will be a bit trickier, I think.

On my Q I am going to put, as one of my themes: Make something for Wulf and then send it to me.  Cheesy Cheesy Wink

Oh, you guys! You're just going to make me jealous! Wouldn't that be a great thing for a swap, though? Make something for someone else on Craftster and we have to guess who it is. There are many people here whose swap packages I would be thrilled to receive!
