I have just posted this over on The Prayer Flag Project blog.
I haven't done one for a while, and I had forgotten how much I benefit from doing them.

Apart from the obvious emotional benefits, I find them a great way to try out something a bit different, be it style, techniques or materials. It is also a great way to use up scraps.

On this flag I used some painted calico that turned out to be a bit heavy for use in any of my pieces. I  played around with some fabric marker pens and puff paint.
Got to use up some embroidery floss too; I have owned it for at least twenty years!

Why not pop over to The Prayer Flag Project blog and take a look.
As I have recently taken over the admin of this blog I would love it if you got involved :)
