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!

Rainbow Squares


 So now its time for me to grovel and apologise
 and say please forgive me
 for my long absence of 2 months . . .
 school took over my life!
One day soon I hope to be full time at The Patchwork Heart
but until then I have a day job which is very demanding and has to come first!

So the first half term is nearly over
 and I am into the swing of things!

I hope you are all enjoying the lovely sunny days and cooler evenings
 . . . time for candles fairy lights and blankets!
 I've even had my hot water bottle out this week 
which has been the height of indulgence!

So what have I been hookin?
Well if you follow me on IG and FB
 you will have enjoyed this rainbow baby blanket
 but there's nothing like the big pictures on a blog
 so here they are for you to enjoy!


Stylecraft Special DK
 in
lipstick
spice
saffron
meadow
aster
violet
 and 
magenta


oh what a pleasure
hours of fun
playing with colours


I just love the simplicity of these plain sqaures
surrounded with parchment


joined from the back with dc through both loops


the stitch definition is to die for


many happy hours were spent under this little beauty
and I even managed to find a matching mug
 to satisfy my OCD!


this blanket gives me so much pleasure
I will definitely be making more!

For those of you who have asked for a pattern
watch this space!

Lovely to be back blogging
I have set myself the new task of blogging each Saturday now

Happy weekend to you all
enjoy your hooky!

Beautiful! My daughter has just asked for something similar in pastel colours - I'm just waiting for my yarn delivery from the UK to the UAE (2 weeks so far - fingers crossed)
Love your colours :)

A wonderful blanket, I like the way you have put the colours together so they sit in a diagonal way, oh and the matching mug ha ha-I am slightly OCD too so it made me chuckle.
Looking forward to more posts from you, it is hard when balancing the day job too.

That is really beautiful. I've used the meadow and parchment in two of my blankets and really like those shades. Your combination of colours is great.

Heather, I am going to have a lot of stylecraft dk bits left over from a project I am just finishing. There are 17 colors. If I were to make this lovely afghan with the left overs, do you think it would look okay with random placing of the colors. I don't know how many of each I may get from what's left, but I am thinking 2 from each. What do you think?
