At last I have finished designing my current blanket, and I can begin to play with colour. As I said in my last post, it’s not been an easy journey so far – my mind and energy still being so very taken up with Mum’s death and all the attendant emotion and paperwork – but … More Colour!

A new design

Well, I have begun my next blanket design. Despite the January gloom and the relentless, exhausting fog of ‘missing my mum’, an idea has popped into my head and refuses to bugger off.
