Beware....It's my turn to wave the Flag

Oh boy....this can get a little daunting, especially when there are so many talented people out there.
Have you checked out the earlier flags?....they are amazing.
My flag all started with this piece of fabric that I had painted and coloured myself.
It actually has quite a sheen and sparkle to it, but unfortunately the camera didn't seem to pick that up.
I added some 3 dimensional butterflies
A little bit of appliqué and some embroidery
I also added a little paint.
You can't beat a quilt hanging from an old fence....or a pencil that draws sparkly lines,
and who would be with out their machine.
Now away with the suspense I give you my flag.
Beware Creativity Is Contagious!



If you've been to my place you would know that I dabble in many areas of craft.
So I thought that this would be just perfect to hang in my yard.
Now I didn't get around to ordering from our fantastic sponsor
They have some terrific stands, I highly recommend that you pop over for a peek.
But I chose to use a Stick and my trusty side kick, Darcee
This is the back...I just love Autumn Colours
and here is a view of how my butterflies sit.
A big thank you to......
Thearica for keeping us all organised

Please don't forget to check out my fellow flag wavers below.
