Its normally at this time of year I attempt the NaNoWriMo challenge, anyone who is unfamiliar with it, it is where you challenge yourself to write a 50’000 word novel in a month, I have yet to actually manage to beat the challenge but one day I will. Unfortunately it won’t be this year as I really don’t have the time this month. One of the things that is taking up my time is finishing up my level four certificate in double filet.
So I have decided to challenge myself in a different way, I am going to use the month to make one final piece for my level 4, the plan is its going to be a lap blanket, working from the centre out using my own patterns, well actually a combination of patterns that I have designed and some new ones.
So today I started out by sorting out a colour palette
I am going to use the parchment colour in the top right hand corner for the base colour and greys as the main contrast with the lilac and greens/yellows as highlight colours.
I also found the first design I am going to use for the centre square
Hopefully tomorrow I can show you my progress.
