Brexit Blanket, Five Colour Friday


Christmas has gone, but 2018 is not yet over. Did you have a good time? We spent the holiday with family and it was good. I managed a little crochet, and thankfully didn't have to hide it away to get my daily 'fix'. I currently have five projects that need finishing, and one will be… Continue reading Transition

Five Colour Friday

You have probably guessed that I love playing with colour. It is fun to do regardless of the medium that you choose. Sometimes colour will spill over from one craft to another - and often this will form the basis of design. Today's colourscheme began with paper play. I was painting pages for my Nine… Continue reading Five Colour Friday

Five Colour Friday

Inspiration pops up when you least expect. The important thing is to keep your eyes open, and constantly take in your surroundings. The inspiration for today's Five Colour Friday comes from our garden. It's been an interesting autumn this year. We didn't have the flames and bronzes that usually occur, instead the trees and shrubs… Continue reading Five Colour Friday

Five Colour Friday

Today's Five Colour Friday has a definite Autumnal feel. Five colours from the Stylecraft Special DK range. They go together very well - with just a little splash of contrast to bring the combination alive. Together they make a particularly striking blanket. Lobelia, Citron, Spice, Copper and Tomato Tomato makes a lovely joining colour. If… Continue reading Five Colour Friday
