Raspberry and Violet Cream

Happy Sunday to you all!
Here is my view at Patchwork House

a new creation for a young girl
in pinks and purples

being a touch on the OCD side I don't do random
so much planning was in order!

oh what pleasure using my new Cath notebook

this has been a very pretty week 
with piles of raspberry and violet starburst flowers
 in every combination possible!

then came the cream
oooooohhhh it is so rich!

and I'm sure you will all agree
 this is going to be a gorgeous pretty blanket

I just cant wait to post it off and hear the reaction!

Have a lovely evening my friends

to watch
as they bloom!

this cold snowy day!

This cold weather 
means a lovely day in relaxing with crochet
 is in order after church.

Granny stripe cowl
Today I'm working on a granny stripe cowl in autumn colours which will be a birthday present for my friend. I'm wearing mine today and thinking its time I made some more in a variety of colours to coordinate with various outfits! They are so cosy!

Gorgeous Granny Goodness

Life at Patchwork House this last week . . .
I will let the pictures tell the story

Such a happy week!
I have loved
 the colours, the richness,
 the vintage feel,
 the granny square goodness,
 the join as you go texture,
 the border
 and in short am very sad to be posting this treasure
 to its new owner tomorrow!!!
 But I know It will be loved
 and is going to a good home!

I am loving being back in blogland
 and hearing from you lovely ladies again,
 do stop and say hi!

Back to my hooky!

All for the love of Cath . . . . .

Once upon a time there was a lady who loved all things Cath ...
 (I do believe there are a few of us???)

Look what the postman brought me!

Cotton yarn in delicious colours
Armed with a pattern I had found on the internet
which you can find 
I spent a wonderful hooky evening

Traditional pattern
and am delighted with the results

Coaster set

I will be making these to sell soon,
 in sets of 6 mixed colours or to any combination of your choice. 
You can contact me to order via email or my facebook page.

Back to my granny blanket making now . . .
I will be posting the progress I am making 
and sharing the gorgeous granny goodness tomorrow!
See you then

A little something for me

Time off from school is precious
 this holiday whilst taking a week off from orders
 I have enjoyed a little selfish hooky!

Who doesn't love a bit of granny goodness?

When I saw many of my pals on Instagram coming up with gorgeous 
cowls, snoods and scarves I knew I just had to have a go!

The pattern I chose to use was written by the lovely Kath over at
Inverleith blog. 

How exciting to rummage through my stash and find scraps to match with my different coats

This is what I came up with!
I am thrilled with my new cowl, it is so soft and snuggly.

I do encourage you
 to have a go
It really is very easy and suitable for any beginners
 and any experienced hooky types will love the simplicity
 knocking one up in a couple of sittings!

So go on over to Inverleith Blog NOW!

Bye for now ... back to my granny blanket

Gorgeous Granny Goodness

Colour Palettes from Design Seeds
 have helped inspire my work so much this year
 and I want to give credit to the wonderful excitement that they give,

Design Seeds
 just making me want to delve into my yarn stash
 and come up with yummy concoctions like these , , , , , 

So what better to make than
 gorgeous granny squares
 with these rich tapestry colours

which will in due course be made into a blanket

of the most cosy kind . . . 

Back to my hooky now
more tomorrow!

Good night

After Christmas prettiness

Birthday flowers
 that I'm enjoying while I crochet
 here at Patchwork House

Hello my lovely bloggy friends and a Happy New Year to you all!
The Patchwork Heart is back in blogland
 ♥ ♥ ♥
yes I've been a bad blogger since I discovered Instgram.
But I have missed you all, so here I am back with a new look!

2012 a year of crochet

This past year has mainly been a year of crochet.
I have switched my attentions from patchwork and upcycling
 to all things hooky.
So you can await a stream of yarny goodness!

My refreshed blog
 will be mainly photos 
with the aim of
 inspiring and encouraging
 more of you to take up that hook!

I look forward to catching up with you all
