Non Team Challenge 12: Top 10

Choosing a winner for the Non Team Challenge 12 was so hard – there were so many beautiful entries! Thank you so much to everyone who participated and gave me their own unique and creative interpretation of my Watercolor Cowl! The following is a listing of my top 10 choices in alphabetical order. Please show these treasuries and craftspeople the love they deserve: make sure to check out both their treasuries and their shops!

A Cozy Afternoon with a Book by loopyboopy has a beautiful muted vintage vibe to it.Β  It was one of my favourite ways to spend a quiet winter afternoon pre-baby (and still is but my baby doesn’t think so!).

I completely love A cozy New Year! by Emilyparkesart. I love the mix of bright and muted colours and I love how each of the items is knitting related.

I can understand why palimpsestic has won the non team challenge twice already! Her entry, Flowers in the Mist is stunning! I love how all of her picks have dreamy and fresh looking and reflect the colours in my cowl stunningly.

True story: I live in a very snowy area of Canada and I cannot ice skate. I’ve tried and decided that cross-country skiing is more my winter sport. Regardless of this fact, I love ice skating on a snowy winter day by mirthmarket. This is a very well thought out and put together treasury!

I think that Little Birds Whisper When A Cat Is In The Room by gildinglilies is a unique interpretation of the challenge this week and it is executed beautifully!

I love Queen of the Prairie by pamelasjewelry. The soft shades and spare colour in here reminds me of winter here on the prairies!

I think that Simple Pleasures of Winter byΒ  RELMOriginals reminds me of being in a rustic cabin and warming up after skiing. I love the warmth that radiates from the treasury with its rich wintery fabrics and wooden items.

Soft Spring Rain by waterlilyjewels reminds me that spring will come (eventually!). I love all of the soft shades and the raindrops sprinkled throughout.

The Knitting Girl by malagerie perfectly encompasses the life of a knitter. I love how all the items in here are knitting related and match my cowl!

I think that Watercolor dreams in the mirror by tahliaday is simply stunning. I love the quiet romance of this treasury.

Thank you again to everyone who participated. It was an amazing experience!

      I really appreciated the thought you put into yours! It was all knitting and it all somehow matched my cowl!
