When summer pokes its head through the door, I go a little crazy.
Some people have hayfever; I go haywire, creatively speaking. Once a writer, always a writer, but sunshine makes me want to pick up other hobbies. I usually paint Disney pictures when the weather is fine but, for 2015, my chosen poison is sewing.
Like a squirrel with nuts, I’ve been gathering inspiration for the winter months. Mama Goodacre has already requested a Christmas blanket for Winterfest 2015, but in my spare time, I came up with a double-sided blanket design based on my favourite author, Robin Hobb:
The blanket will be made from fleece and will be the first time I use Applique… obviously I will be practicing my technique beforehand!
This blanket has already been reserved by my fellow writer and Robin Hobb fan, S.E. Berrow, but I’ll be sure to duplicate it for my own geeky, snuggly needs.
If anyone is similarly crafty and would like a larger version of the blanket template, feel free to poke me for it.
