2nd ANNUAL GROW YOUR BLOG PARTY A WOOL FELTED TREAUSURE BOX called the SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS and A GIVEAWAY

HELLO EVERYONE,

I HAVE TRULY MISSED YOU ALL.

Life has been pretty hectic and I have been finding it difficult to keep up.  First, an update on My MOM..She is making slow progress in walking with a walker with 2 people assisting her. I am not sure if she will ever walk alone again. But I hope for the best.


I made a commitment sometime ago to participate in this wonderful Party called "GROW YOUR BLOG" HOSTED  By Vicki at "2 Bags Full". and so "I am back" and very excited to visit old friends and meet new ones too. 

 GYB Party is Vicki's great idea and this will be the second year.  We are all very very grateful for all the time and effort she puts into putting on this super great party for all of us joining in.  Thanks Vicki from the bottom of My Heart.

Please be sure to visit Vicki's blog and visit all the wonderful blogs participating in the GYBP..  




THE STORY OF THE TREASURE BOX


Back in 2008 I took "My First Wet Felting Workshop" from a lady Up North.  I really enjoyed this class but I had never created anything from the fabric I created..

Last Autumn I said it is time to use this lovely wool art fabric I made so long ago.  I decided to make a "Treasure Box" to set on the table next to my stitching chair to keep all my "Stuff" in.

I can never "Just" create a "Treasure Box" without Embellishing it and creating a scene.


I  decided to try and create the beautiful
 "Scottish Highlands"..
 I started by needle felted some more colors into the fabric.  I added a beautiful green for the endless
 "Highland Mountains" 
Then Lavender to represent the "Heather" that grows wild in the Highlands.  The Lavender and Pink French Knots are to represent the Blooming Heather Flowers.....Of course I had to add a "Heart" too.


You can not create a  'Scottish Highland" without "Sheep"roaming about.  So I created 3 sheep and added a ceramic one too.


I added lots of other flowers, gold stars and clouds that sparkled... On one side of the "Treasure Box" I added a "Pocket" to stick more stuff into.  LOL 

 The copper badges say, "Kindness Matters".
I also added a wee Rose and a Pink Tyvek Bead I made sometime ago. 


I had so much fun creating "My Treasure Box"..
 While stitching away it made Me Very Happy and took my mind off the worries of My Mom.

So what do you all think of my
 Scottish Highland "Treasure Box"...
