corner view ≈ colours of january

defying the dull rain and wind filled winter skies, i've come up with nothing but colour for january. but it is only francesca's theme that made me realize this. the ongoing story of the granny blanket makes me dive into my yarn basin almost every night. just yesterday i gathered strength and breath to finally cover a footstool with embroidery patchwork. it only took me half a day. jane's corner view.

  7. Such a beautiful piece of furniture with that gorgeous needlework! Time to sit back with your book, a glass of wine and enjoy the fruits of your labor. I'll have a glass, too, to show my support :-)

  11. I love it. That's lovely and certainly looks and feels like a warmer, fresher time to come. Did you do all those tapestries? It's a brilliant way to show them off. :)
