We all picked out (blind) a paint sample from an envelope with our initials on it. Three samples using your three initials (or two initials and your maiden name initial if your parents could only decide on one name!)
The Challenge was to make an item using three random colours, and you could add you two more colours - plain or tone on tone (there was a bit of poetic licence used there ladies?!?!)
Well what do you think?
(Please accept apologies for a bit photo heavy post, but I think they are worth a look.)

And you may be asking what this all has to do with Nesta and her sister? -----

A huge thank you to Louise for setting this years Challenge. I think (though we complained) that we all have had great fun with this idea. Looking forward to another Challenge this Christmas!
