Blogger Craft Challenge II

Another Blogger Craft Challenge II hosted by Beachys Cape Cod Cupboard http://beachyscapecodcupboard.blogspot.com/
After much success with Blogger Craft Challenge I, Beachys is hosting another challenge. You can hop on over to Beachys and there's a link to those who are participating. Those who signed up were to take the above image and create something using this image and post it on January 29th. I'm a little early, but I'm gone most of tomorrow and wanted to get this posted.
I decided that I wanted to try something different and unique, so I designed an ascot scarf. Using white wool as a base, I needlefelted various strands of wool roving along the length of the scarf. I was experimenting, thus the curves and curly cues. I then made several small burgandy hearts with a little yellow mixed in (again experimenting). I thought of hearts....(1) because of the photo (2) because V'day is almost here. Here is my crafty creation, I'm not quiet sure if I like it...remember, it's an experiment! I hope you enjoy it.
"Wedding Bliss Ascot"
To better incorporate the photo, I used two others that I found in my collection. The photos aren't really clear, but the blogger challenge photo is on the bottom. Then there is a photo of bride and then a photo of the bride and groom. They aren't really the bride and groom, but it was a close match. I don't think the wedding party will mind!


There is a small slit on one side of the ascot so that you can pull the other side through.


A view without being pulled through the slit. You can see the photo's a little better!

I hope you have enjoyed my bloggers craft challenge creation. Thank you Beachys for again hosting such a wonderful and creative outlet. I look forward to seeing what other creations my fellow bloggers design.
