Scheepjes CAL 2020 - Blanket d'Histoire Naturelle

The Scheepjes CAL and Read-A-Long for 2020 is here! 

Designer Christina Hadderingh says, “During this CAL and Read-A-Long I plan to take you on a journey through the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle of Paris, France..." Ever since she started crafting roughly 10 years ago, Dutch blogger Christina can’t see herself living without crochet or knitting. Armed with her trusty crochet hook and her cat Poose by her side, she is ready to sit down, daydream a little, and create gorgeous designs. She finds inspiration all around her but especially in nature and books. Read more about Christina on her blog.
