button garlands

a long time ago i saw a blog post about someone making a button garland.  i thought it was a great idea and kept it tucked in the back of my mind, and yesterday was the perfect day to sit down and make one.  
 
but who knew that they'd be like chips and you couldn't just have one.  so i made one more for my guest room bed.

outside prayer flags

i am still recycling the local sports pool racing flags that were going to be discarded when they put up a new string.  i was in the right place at the right time.

i decided to use them for a monthly prayer flag group and i've been uploading one a month as per the group instructions.
i decided since i still had plenty of left overs to make one for above my glass sliding doors on my side patio.  i wanted to leave the white plastic show through on these, unlike the inside flags.
i just used scraps i had, as well as some hand dyed material from my friend, val, who so graciously sent me a little package full of her scraps.  i hope you enjoy looking at them.





may prayer flag

this month the prayer flag theme was imagine and you had to include beads.
