W.E.S.T. October Design Challenge Results

The design challenge for October was "With a Grateful Heart!"

Thankfulness. Gratitude. We have so much to be grateful for.

Two W.E.S.T. artists came up with some awesome results using this theme as their inspiration.

Our first entry was from Tawny of TawnyBee:

Fingerwoven Set of Friendship Bracelets - Chinese Braid by TawnyBee

Tawny shared that the reason she chose to make these Chinese Braided Bracelets for this month's challenge was because of a quote from the book where she learned how to make this particular braid: "I like to think of it [the Chinese braid] as a closely knit family, the core of dark at the center representing home and parents, the lighter strands, which leave and then return, as children whose lives are separate but still linked." And family is what Tawny is most thankful for.

Our next entry was from Miriam of MonCherieCreations:

Take-out or Travel Cup Cozy and Coasters - Christmas set - candy cane stripes by MonCherieCreations

 Miriam's item for the Grateful Heart design challenge was a red-and-white striped cup cozy and two "peppermint" coasters. Miriam shared a story of the candy cane (which you can read here) to explain why this item represents her faith, which she is most grateful for.

Well done team! Stay tuned for the announcement of the next challenge later this week!
