Don't you just love finding a new pattern!
I am addicted to these beautiful table mats!
The pattern I found on Pinterest
by the talented Barbara Langer
and was from
I have been making them in all colours
and coordinating them with coasters too
for a little wedding gift
Finally I made one for myself
using Stylecraft cotton Classique with a 3.5mm hook
It is so lovely I don't want to hide it under my vase!
Do have a go!
Very quick and easy!

This winter I've enjoyed making something new
Following the discovery
of some good quality cheap hotties
in my local bargain store
I've been busy creating cosy hot water bottles
which have been extremely popular!
small and big
a cosy polo neck
bright rainbow colours
and pretty granny chic
Keeping GB warm!
I hope you are keeping warm as it is snowing again today!

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!

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

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,
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!

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
and am delighted with the results
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

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
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

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,
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
