I did not plan to make these colours, but when the only narrow ribbon with any bling on it I could find was available in three colours – white, green and peach – I drifted down a rather unconventional path.
In for a penny, in for a pound. So, why not add purple to the mix? I hardly ever use purple. It, like peach, is not a colour I am drawn to, but I had such pretty shades of purple felt in my stash.
‘Snap out of it! Go traditional!’ I told myself.
Whatever your plans on Christmas Day, enjoy. I, like songwriter and comedian Tim Minchin, will be drinking white wine in the sun with my family. The forecast is for not too hot, so we will probably be in the garden by the pool.
