Pretties for Spring

Spring is on the way!
As I write  I'm enjoying open windows in the house
 the smell of fresh air and the sound of the birds singing.

This morning I've been cleaning and tidying
 Patchwork House
 and having much fun rearranging 

I love to see piles of prettiness
colour around my home

It was time to put away the valentines hearts
 and add some
 spring coloured flowers and baubles to my twigs

The last few weeks I've been busy stocking my
with pretty spring goodies

Ive really enjoyed these quick little makes
and the massive dose of colour therapy!

Rico Essentials Cotton DK

 has a wonderful range of colours and a gorgeous rich sheen

Mandalas are such fun to make

DMC Natura Just Cotton

 has a lovely natural texture and deep warm shades

 has a luxurious feel
 and a very good twist which prevents splitting

Sirdar Cotton DK

I use a 3mm hook
 when making mandalas to achieve a firmer finish

Patchwork House is ready for Spring

As a newbie to Etsy
 I'm amazed at how fast these pretties have sold!

I'm restocking every few days so do keep visiting!

Etsy Shop

Now my chores are done
 you will find me here for the rest of my weekend
 doing what I love!

Happy hookin friends

I love working with Sirdar cotton. I'm making a king size blanket with this yarn.
