Do you believe?



I am back today to share with you a fun little
swap I did with one of my sweet and talented
blog friends. (JAN)  I just love her work and I have
put a link to her blog more than once here.



She made me this beautiful Prayer Flag.
We had decided on using
Angels for our inspiration.




So do you believe...



Isn't this a gorgeous piece she made me.
So many wonderful layers of lacey goodness.
And that image she
printed right onto the fabric is perfect.

I am thinking Jan should have gotten her
prayer flag that I made her by now.
I sent it off a while ago.

So Jan if you have not receive your flag by now
And you don't want to spoil the surprise.
Don't scroll down any further.  



I had used the word Believe also.
Great minds think a like. Hee hee..



I had painted this face onto a piece of muslin
And then stitched some bead on.  This is the first time
I had painted on fabric.  It was a bit easier than I had
thought it would be.


This whole project is made with fabric except for the
wings.  I used paper doilies for them.

I just wanted to say thanks so much to
Jan for the wonderful swap.


I heard there was another storm getting ready to
hit back east once again.  I pray that everyone
is safe and warm.

Hugs~
