Isn't Isabel Amazing?!!!

My friend Isabel is an amazingly creative person! Last year she crocheted a beautiful bedspread and this year took on a new project for her sister's wedding. (Working only from a picture because this gal is so creative she doesn't even need a pattern!)

Week after week she would work away in our lunchroom and we watched with eager anticipation as her masterpiece was created before our very eyes.

What started out as small skeins of thread,


were carefully formed by hand,


flower by flower; leaf by leaf;


colour by colour in a variety of shapes, dimensions and depths,


176 hours of careful work to create...


...this most beautiful piece of wearable art! Isn't it absolutely breathtaking?


GREAT JOB ISABEL!!!!! Looking forward to seeing the next project you choose!
