PDCC68 better late than never!!!


Apologies for the late appearance of my play date cafe colour challenge piece - I had to respond to a statement yesterday from one of the drivers that hit my car back in November and it sent me all of a wobble, and I ended up not being able to do anything!  The statement wasn't correct, and thinking it through so deeply took me right back to spending all that time in the centre of the M6, in the dark and wet, and on my own. :(


Julie picked our colours this week and I just LoVeD using them, especially that pink!  I made a journal page using Adirondack paint dabbers, a doiley and a white gel pen.


I then added paper hearts, stitched downt he middle, and tiny crocheted hearts, one of which I sprayed with pink Sticky Fingers ink.  These were so cute to do; I was out with my crochet bag and intended to make some more hearts for my heart garland but I'd brought the wrong crochet hook, so I made miniature hearts instead!!!


Think I'm going to be making some more of these!!!


This journal page is A5 in size and the hearts are about the size of a 50p piece.  Fiona's been crocheting with this week's colours too - the most gorgeous pair of baby sandals!  And this week we have our first guest designer of 2011 - the talented Kazan Clark (who co-owned 2sketches4you).  So please take a look at our designers' wonderful work over in the cafe, and visit their blogs to show them some love.
