It brings me great joy to share with you all,
a new development here at The Patchwork Heart.
Over the years I have become known for my mug shots,
my daily post of colourful crochet and
of course my colour recipes.
Many of you write and say,
that you have no confidence putting colours together
and although you can crochet this sadly holds you back.
I am always so happy when I see posts in the Facebook group
from people who have been inspired by my colour recipes
and it gives me great pleasure to share them with you.
Colour makes my heart sing!
Where ever I am, whatever I see, my brain translates it into yarn!
It may be beautiful china, colourful sweets or a pretty flower bed
but before I know it I'm imagining a blanket,
writing a colour recipe and
am planning what pattern to make!
Well today I am delighted to announce
that you can now buy my colour packs
I have put together a collection of the most popular colour recipes.
This brings you a fantastic saving buying a pack
and of course saves you lots of trouble,
searching for the list and selecting them all individually for your basket.
They are being sold by Deramores
who ship worldwide.
There are small packs
of 6 colours ideal for baby size
or to top up your stash!
There are also larger packs for big colourful blankets
and my hope is there is something for everyone.
The pack does not contain a pattern,
it is a colour recipe.
You can use it for any pattern you wish.
all of these blankets can be found on my blog,
with helpful hints and links to the patterns I have used
should you wish to recreate them.
You will also find many
which will help you with blanket making.
Its been such fun over the years
naming my colour recipes and I have enjoyed asking you for help!
This will be happening more from now on
as my work moves in a new direction.
I am moving away from taking orders and selling in my Etsy shop,
as the designer in me needs that freedom to create!
I do hope you will understand and I am sorry if this disappoints.
(Orders that have already been accepted will be honoured,
please be patient I am working through the list!)
So you can look forward to
more colour recipes from me,
regular daily posts of colour to inspire you
and new colour packs frequently being added to the
Pop on over to the
and see what there is!
Have a browse and do let me know
if there are any favourites missing that you would like to see!
You can email me at
and I will be very pleased to hear from you.
Wishing you all a colourful weekend!
Make time for crochet
and enjoy the colour therapy!
