Girl with Roses and Knitted Blanket

For the Collage Obsession challenge - Sepia+pastel
I started with a sepia photo from my stash and introduced some pastel colour on the flowers and background.
Last week I also removed bags full of knitted swatches from my loft. These were not to throw out this time but to make into a blanket. My sister who was staying with me, helped sew the first one which she will keep for her own use. I've already made a few blankets a long time ago and given most of them away. If you're wondering why I have so many swatches  ... I used to design machine knitting patterns for home knitters, mainly motifs and these swatches are the practice runs.
Proof that my sister helped. She says she looks like she know what she is doing. The swatches are quite a challenge to stitch together as they are all different shapes and sizes and in some places they do look a little puckered.

  1. Beautiful entry for the Collage Obsession challenge. Thank you for participating.

    By the way, the blanket is so cute, I think I´ll steal the idea. ;)
