My Birdsong banner from Barb

How is it possible it's been two weeks since I was in Kansas?
It's always fun in the weeks following an event to go online and see everyone's photos; the one above of Tammy and I was taken by Terri, at the make-n-take at Angie's shop.
But what I really wanted to tell you about today is the banner I received from Barb -- shown above, with Barb!
And here's a close up of each letter, done in fabric with paper embellishments here and there.
 I love the shape of her "pennants"!
Barb said several times that the banner was a challenge, making her grow as an artist. 
 I can see how much love and detail went into each portion of the banner,
 and I appreciate all the ways she personalized it to make it so "me"!


This banner will hang in my bedroom and I can't wait to get it up!
Look at this cute stamp Barb used to personalize the back!  (All of the pennants were backed with burlap.)
I'll have fun with this little egg-shaped clip, with chalkboard paint on top, which decorated the banner package.
When we swap, we do it between classes/on breaks in Karla's lovely garden.
Wow -- I wish everyone could have seen the gorgeous banners that got swapped that day!  Hope, who hostessed the swap, made one as a gift for Karla.
And, she didn't waste any time getting hers hung up in between her dining room and parlor so we could all enjoy it the rest of the weekend!
 When we raffle-swapped our decorated bottles -- I received Karla's!
She decorated it inside and out -- for better photos, check out her blog post about it!
