More Prayer Flags......

Oh my poor neglected Blog...
I'm still here!!
...just been Busy Busy Busy!!
But in between all the busy-ness!!....I've been having some fun with fabric! .... and I thought I would take some time to share some lovely Prayer Flag trades that I have been taking part in.....
You might want to Grab yourself a cuppa
....lots of pics to follow!!
After the wonderful Prayer flag swap I took part in at Lenna's Creative Swaps Blog....I was looking to swap some more prayer flags to add to my collection....I got some lovely offers to trade....
and Jewels was one who took me up on my offer.
So this is what I created for Jewels....
My prayer flag for Jewels
and this is the beauty I got in return....
Made by Jewels
...just LOVE LOVE LOVE all  the shabby fabrics, the stitched base is an old pillow case linen, lace, lovely sentiment and sweet image!
Now...a lady who knows how to play with fabric is Judy so when she agreed to trade...I knew it would be a fabby swap!
Judy asked me to create a flag with the sentiment of 'Abundance'
So this is what I made for Judy....
My prayer flag for Judy
She loves rich colours and the image that I printed onto fabric is the Goddess of Abundance.
...and the theme that I gave to judy was shabby and Angels...
...and WOW this is what she made for me!!
Made by Judy
So much gorgeous shabbiness, beautifully embellished...LOVE it!!
Yvonne also left a comment on my blog for a Prayer flag swap
Yvonne requested a Thankful Theme.
..and these are the results of our super trade....
My prayer flag for Yvonne

  14. Hi Smiff, Wow what a lovely collection. I have just been stunned at all the creativity here. I can imagine all these lovely flags displayed in your craft room. A new addiction I see. I would love to trade with you but in the new year. Too much going on and now I am doing 2 craft classes at the local community library.
    Take care and enjoy all those lovely pieces of art.
    I sure miss trading.

  15. Hi Smiff, not sure where my post went....sorry if this is the 2nd one. Lovely eye candy here. Such wonderful creativity. I have missed blogging and seeing what everyone is doing.

    Take care and enjoy your lovely goodies.
