At the beginning of this project, all I knew was that I wanted it to be colourful so I started in the middle, and just decided what to do next as I went along. Much of it was experimental, but I'm happy with the way it has turned out. I enjoyed throwing every stitch I could think of into this and the beauty of the finished project is as much in the textures as the bright clashing colours. My baby son enjoys feeling the French knots.
