the ‘homely blanket’ quest – square 26

dear diary,

During my recent trip to Venice I was constantly inspired by everything I saw, but especially by the beautiful glass objects. As I took in all this glorious colour around me, my mind was never far from crochet and in particular the designs for the ‘homely blanket’ quest.

This week’s square was inspired by the Italian garden on the island of Murano…
