More Colour Combinations

At Woolfest a lot of attention was paid to the samples that I had on the stand of Colour Affection and Stripe Study.  Most folk who looked at them loved them, although some found their off-centre design a little hard to like.   I put together some packs of colours which I thought went together well,  […]
