My Sun & Stars

My Sun and Stars was quite literal; it started with a sun in the sky – the triangles were added as an experiment and I liked them so then it just needed to be softened by adding circles which looked to me like planets. Therefore it became a sun in the middle with planets around. My imagination saw the sun in the night sky

My Vintage

In the second colourway, ‘My Vintage’ the colours are no longer literal and remind me of a vintage tile or carpet with washed colours reminiscent of faded rugs of Eastern origin. Not being my usual colour palette, it was both intriguing and exciting to challenge myself and extend my usual colour range and I love it! The more I used these colours the more I loved their richness and depth and subtlety.

My Country Garden - Colour Recipe by The Patchwork Heart

It has long been my dream to live in a cottage, growing flowers to fill jugs for my home. Picking shades for a colour recipe which evoked this dream, gave me weeks of pleasure, as I hooked these pretty shades together. It is my hope that you too will have a wonderful adventure as you work with the Country Garden colour recipe.

Quick delivery

I was extremely pleased with how quick this kit arrived. I have not used the Stylecraft Life before but feels squishy. Making a start on the pattern, colours are beautiful!

Awful slow delivery

It took 6 working days for my parcel to be delivered. Spoke to customer services who refused to help me until the delivery was more then 6 working days late! Although the delivery chart says UK delivery in 3days if you read above it also says it can take upto 3days to prepared the order. I’ve used many online yarn shops and this is by far the worst
