Hello and welcome to Patchwork House . . . . .
my little corner of the world on the NW coast of England, where you will find me addicted to colour and playing with yarn!

The Jammy Dodger


Oh its been such a busy week
school is very busy
we wind up and get busier and busier towards the end of term
sadly this means little time for hooky
but when time allows
I am working on an unusual colour combination
using Stylecraft Special DK in
lipstick grey and white


I love the willow block from Jan Eatons book 200 Crochet Blocks


and this gorgeous
 heart square
 from Simply Crochet magazine


oh what fun to sort through my magazine stash
 and find this gorgeous
 Little Love Hearts pattern in issue 14


it made me smile when I photographed this layout
as all I could see was jammy dodgers!
I have many more squares to make
 but eventually they will be joined and edged with black


Sunday is a day for relaxing at Patchwork House
after church we enjoy time at home together
time to relax and refresh

I hope you had a relaxing Sunday too

Happy hookin
Heather

Hello Heather, those love heart squares are really pretty and I would not think to combine the three colours you have chosen. But they look great together, Jammy Dodgers, ah yes I remember these. They were a precious treat when we were children and we visited our grandmother's house. That and real home made trifle made by my grandfather.
Have a good week x

Is it possible to still get jammy dodgers? I have o admit they were never one of my favourites but I always liked the look of them. Your squares look lovely - don't try eating them!
