Prayer Flag Swap

I received some beautiful prayer flags this weekend. I participated in Lenna Young Andrews' swap on her Creative Swaps blog. I was so excited to see the gorgeous work that was created by the other participants.

This first one was created by Julie Oman from Just Tickety-Boo.
I love the colorful fabrics and there are some really pretty decorative sewing stitches on it but that detail is hard to see in the sunlight.

The second flag is from Jan Smith at Jan's Arty Junk.
The fabric flowers are so cute and I love the way she made the stems with lace!

The third flag is from Gretchen Peacock at Amanda's Baskets.
She used such pretty fabrics and I love the way she arranged them!

I hung the flags up with some lace out in the garden by the driveway. They look so pretty! The day was perfect with lovely sunshine and a soft breeze to spread the wishes and prayers out into my neighborhood.

Thank you Jewels, Jan and Gretchen for making such beautiful flags! I am so happy to have them!
Thanks again, Lenna, for having this fun, creative swap!!!


  1. oh, you have made me very happy, Susan! Thanks so much for sharing your joy in receiving and hanging your prayer flags, I so appreciate it! They look perfectly beautiful in your garden. Cheers & good wishes!

  2. They are all so pretty Susan and look wonderful hanging amongst the flowers!
    I had a wee peep at the flags you made and the last one with the vintage lace and buttons was totally me!!!!!

    That was a fun idea Lenna had for a swap - I must keep my eye out for what's next!!
