My current blanket WIP is one shade...
I wanted to edge it in a shade of pink, but wasn't really sure what shade of pink to use.
I also wasn't sure in which room this blanket was headed when it was finished.
I'm on the home stretch now, and a recent purchase has secured its place within the house.
I have been on the search for the perfect pink linen bedding. I love pink.......but....I am VERY particular about what shades of pink I like. Pale is good, and with touches of brown or orange. Dirty pinks and peachy pinks I am drawn too, but blue or purple tones in pinks really are a 'no no' for me.
I wanted a dirty pink, a grey-ish pink. I didn't want overtly girly, but I wanted soft and calm.
I found the perfect bedding after a bit of a search, but annoyingly it was all sold out. As soon as I saw it was back in again, it popped in the virtual basket.
Ahhhhhh, I love brown and pink together. The brown shade I am using is just called 'Chocolate' but I refer to it as 'Mouse' as it has more of a grey tone to it than a red tone.
I had been itching to use this pink shade too, and found it matched quite well with the bed linen.....and I might even add the golden ochre shade. I'm not sure yet, but I think it may well work.
So, although 'Brights' are well and truly on their way for me, the pastels are not quite done....
....and I just couldn't resist these. Utterly me, It would have been criminal not to have shoved those in the basket too.
Aren't they just the prettiest coasters you have ever seen?
I actually cannot bring myself to open them yet. Pastel heaven for sure.
I have already started digging out all my colourful yarns, and it's been such a fun process. I cannot wait to get started on something bright and cheerful...until then, I shall continue to finish off My current WIP. I'm in love with that too!
Cheerio for now
