Colouring Colouring

How long since you've done some colouring in?



Colouring in is great fun, especially when you are doing it on fabric!
I was busy with other things today, so I can't show you my work-in-progress because I haven't taken photos...but...
I've been playing with that stack of fabrics I showed you last week. I'm making a Christmas wallhanging by Christine Book - I've had the pattern since 2003 (gulp!) The sample is made using "a folky country palette of burgundy, caramel, olive green and navy", which sortof explains why I was uninspired to start. The centre is a stitchery which is supposed to be coloured with food colouring...don't try it...it runs everywhere :(
So I took out my trusty Derwent coloured pencils and started colouring....weeeeeeeeeeeeee!! Love it.
Note to self....take some photos tomorrow.
