Testing testing, 1, 2 and stop.

I was trying to get an idea of what my woolen blanket may look like, so i made some cushion covers for my room as a test. The colours and fabrics i had left were a bit nasty and only resulted in odd combinations. Easy to make, not so easy to make them look nice. Oh well, on the plus side they are very comfy and cosy. Good for people with limited sight maybe or very dark houses. I will have to try harder with the blanket and do much more hand finishing. It will be a big job but ive spent ages collecting and shrinking the wool. Though i dont think i will ever be fully happy with all the colours. I should have got my expert friend to dye them specifically. Ahhh, next time!
