We moved back into the front sitting room on Monday now it's getting cold in the conservatory after sun down.....decided to move the furniture around yet again and make a throw for the hated sofa in there...not our usual Ikea buy!!!

Decided it needs a throw to match the loved rug......

Tried Attic24's RIPPLE PATTERN OUT....with a few alterations of course hehe
single row of double strand easy to do...thanks Lucy nice pattern
Used a few experiments with colour in one cushion front...Phil liked it....l like bits of it but not really all together.....
So going to use the Ikea rug as the colour inspiration...we both adore that make a ripple throw over the winter and going to use pure wool instead of the usual cheap acrylic wool
Although l do love the colours you can find locally in acrylic...not so keen on the feel of it and l hate the way it squeaks when l get age l'm afraid!! hehe
Spread all the unfinished experiments l've tried out over the last couple of months too.....must do something with them all...eventually!! hehe
Thanks to......
Rose Hip...the beautiful cushion and the wonderful colour combo l saw and just had to use
Colour Creations....Her stripy bag inspiration with flowers that reminded me of the bags l used to make in the 60's and 70's and
Sarah London...monthly patterns and wonderful colour use
