Hello and welcome to Patchwork House . . . . .
my little corner of the world in South Yorkshire, England, where you will find me addicted to colour and playing with yarn!

Willow love


Love is . . . . .
trying something new
discovering a new pattern
and
a sumptuous palette of rich earthy colour


this week I have had the lovely pleasure of beginning a wedding gift

this calls for something special
so after much discussion with the bride to be

we arrived at a plan


the lovely Willow block from 200 crochet blocks by Jan Eaton


and a gorgeous selection of Stylecraft Special DK


I am in love with the pattern that shows
 when working solid colour blocks


colour makes my heart sing
you cant imagine how happy this blanket is making me!


so this week I will be making 4 sets of the 12 shades
 plus 1 more
for a blanket of 49 squares

they will be joined with dark brown and a deep lace border
ooohhh I cant wait!

Come back next week for a progress update!
till then happy hookin
my crochet pals!

Beautiful colors and I love the block you selected.

Heather the pattern on that block is beautiful, I think you're right to do solid colour blocks so that the pattern is not lost. It's also great that you and the bride-to-be got the chance to sit down and choose together. This will be a gorgeous piece of hand made crochet that will be cherished for years to come.

Oohh, how nice are your squares. I have the very same book and that Willow square was the very main reason why I got the book, however I have not come around to making it yet. . . too much to crochet and so little time !!
Love your blog and so I'm here to stay !!
