Rose said...

Glad your Grandad is ok! I don't have a favorite color combo, I actually have a hard time picturing things together, so I tend to find a pattern and use similar materials to what is pictured, so I know what it's gonna look like. I am partial to teal/purple/pink/blues though. I love whatever material is in the picture, and I do love Nest by Moda. Browns. Mmm. They're all my favorite lol. Great giveaway!!

Michaela said...

My favorite combo involves anything with green. :)
