Jan from Jan's Arty Junk and I
took part in Lenna's Prayer Flag Swap
(Creative Swaps) last year, and as Jan was
keen to increase her collection of flags
she did a 'shout out' on her blog for swaps.
I jumped at the chance to swap with her
and we arranged to meet for a coffee
and swap just before Christmas.
But everything got kinda busy and
the pre-Christmas get together had
to be postponed. Finally, Jan sent me her
BEAUTIFUL flag in the post.

Isn't 'Bloom' gorgeous?
Jan is the 'Queen of shabby'
- I love those flowers, the colours, the lace
and the stitching. It's all so pretty.
I've pinched the photo from Jan's blog because
the weather here is so dull I can't get a
decent picture (and hers is a great picture).
Now, Jan had to wait rather a long time for
my flag (I procrastinated somewhat......)
and she was very sweet about it,
but I eventually put it in the post and
I know she has now received it :)
I cut up an old denim skirt, otherwise
destined for the clothing recycling bin.
I enjoyed 'doodling' with my needle
and added buttons, trims and
the message to 'relax'.
Thank you for swapping, Jan
(and thank you for being so patient!).
