My June EtsyFAST Challenge

The estyFAST team is asking that all members submit monthly challenges and gives us ideas to spur our creativity. In June the theme was "heroes" - I made a scarf based on the inspiration I get from my new grand-daughter who can make anyone smile.
Here's the inspiration: One day on my way home from work, I was in a very serious, tired mood. While sitting at a stop light, I heard my cell phone ding with the sound of a new email photo from my daughter. I flipped open my phone and found the smiling face of my then three month old grand-daughter. Well.... my mood was changed for days to come and even now I look at that picture and smile. My new heroe is that small being who can make anyone smile no matter how they felt the moment before. I made this scarf with that precious face in mind. It's my EtsyFAST Team June Challenge.
