Remember my last post? I mentioned that I don't often 'do' pastels! This was greeted with much hilarity by one close friend who pointed to a pile of throws and blankets in similar colours to the above! I was forced into defence - and here it is for you too. The above squares are for… Continue reading Pastels? Hmm…
You've probably noticed that I don't often 'do' pastels, but I might just give these a try. Stylecraft have introduced four new colours.

I still have masses of squares to do as the last several days have introduced new temperatures on a daily basis.… Continue reading At last!
