The gentle art of crochet
hours of creativity playing with colours
mental stimulation as I learn new patterns
|Gift for a baby girl
as I see balls of yarn turning into useful items to sell
|Heart is a variety of colours
but so much more than that
it gives me something to get up for each day
a sense of being at work when I can't
it has given me crochet colleagues and customers
to chat to all around the globe
and is a wonderful distraction from pain and fatigue.
Even if I am sat in my pj's
and haven't been out of the house for days
crochet keeps me sane!
Thank you for the many lovely emails and comments
I have received here in blog land and on
I read them all
and really appreciate the time you all take to write.
It's great to be back in this happy place!
It has helped me along meeting many of you
who also cope with chronic illness
and helps me to cope as I start my new journey
along this unknown path of Lupus.

This week has been all about hearts here at Patchwork House
restocking my little Etsy shop with gifts for you to buy!
I enjoying making this quick little heart,
and have been working with a fabulous cotton that does not split!
comes in 29 shades and I highly recommend it!

Putting together colour recipes is my joy,
conjuring up combinations that will appeal for different occasions
A gift for a bride
A gift for a baby girl

A new home gift
Whatever the occasion these hearts are just the job!
