I am still making a big monochrome blanket for our winter bed. I chose black and white because I 99% have white bedding and the headboard is black velvet. you can't see it from the picture, but the white is sparkly ( 3 for £2 from Poundland). I am going to love this blanket. I have a blue and green one in the lounge and I love that. I want to make this as big as possible, I can see me adding rows to it whilst in bed snuggled beneath it, sipping hot chocolate and watching TV, on the long winter nights.
This book is great, the sketches alone make it worthwhile, but it is really geared to motivate and push you into actually working. I have been working in my sketchbook every day since it arrived, so I can say it is living up to its promise.
It looks like I may have some illustration projects coming up, so I really needed to give myself a push. Oscar has been joining in with me, and I cant tell you how awesome that feels, to sketch together.
