According to Wikipedia, Peter Paul Rubens was known for his “extravagant Baroque style that emphasised movement, colour, and sensuality”. And I can’t think of a better way to describe the beautiful hand-knitted and crocheted blanket that Mrs Ruben makes:
I love love love the combination of colours and think I’m very lucky to own such a masterpiece. Unfortunately the colours look a bit washed out because I used the flash. But we can blame Ivy’s camera for that which I borrowed, having lost my own on a bet in Tunisia (that last part’s not true, but the real story is not as interesting).
And here we have a photo of Mrs Ruben mid-way through making the blanket. We used to have a video of it, but I dropped my hard drive and lost all my photos (that was a dramatic lesson in backing up in two places)
And now that I have a camera again, at least temporarily, expect to see photos of everything under the sun. Heck, I might even take some photos of the bitches on Tuesday. Lipstick out ladies!
