Temperature Blanket Update February

Two months into the blanket and it’s still cold! Though last week another colour appeared so it feels encouraging that it’s warming up out there. A couple of weeks ago I had to unravel a few days as I’d used the wrong shade for the outline colour. I’d finished working on the Kaffe Fassett Zig […]

Penny Loves Kaffe Fassett

A request from Penny for a Kaffe Fassett design and, two months later, it’s on it’s way to her. I enjoyed making this; I always do when there is so much colour involved. And I have to say I’m pleased with the result, but then would expect nothing less from a Kaffe Fassett design. This […]
