This is the description of one of the blankets from the book: He came into the bedchamber and tossed a huge blanket over her. The blanket was coarse and spiky and, as the princess tried to push it off, it scratched at her arms and hands, drawing blood. It was roughly woven in blacks and browns and dark greens. The blanket smelled mossy and damp, and the Princess saw that it was patterned with ancient trees and birds of prey, embroidered with dark undergrowth and small, wild creatures. “The forest’s blanket,” he said. There was darkness in the blanket; there were frightening shadows. There were brambles and snakes. The blanket clawed at her and she felt faint. Write a description of the blanket you have designed as if it was the next blanket the stranger gave to the princess. Complete the task called Blanket description on DB Primary
