We've been fairly knocked over by Nanny McPhee these holidays. The first one has been on high rotation on the dvd player and we bustled along to the Rivoli on Wednesday to fully enjoy Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang. I love the art direction of both movies so much. Beautiful colours and textiles and painted wood.
To add a little of all that to our home, I am making my own Nanny McPhee crochet blanket (screenshot from the film above, top). I thought it might look nice on our bed - but to cover a queen size bed will require 1024 squares! That's an awful lot of hooking. In the last three days I have managed 9. 1015 to go. I need to get quicker or it might end up on the sofa as a far smaller throw. Or maybe a doll blanket.
