I'm moving....

After a bit of a slow few years, I'm moving my blog over to

It will be most likely the same kind of fun content, I've just decided to streamline my branding. I also believe a blog is like a story, and chapters must come to an end. This is the last chapter of this blog, but not my whole blogging story.

You can follow on bloglovin, there isn't much there yet! all other social media links remain the same, although you might notice some changes occurred already this year.

All content will remain here, but please join me at my new blog for fresh new ideas.

Crochet to your heart's content

This has been my mission statement, or blog motto for a while! So I thought I would add it to a phone case! I find it hard to explain what I do, so I thought this would be a good talking point. I also have it for sale on Red Bubble (link here) so you can get your own!

In other news, a live video on granny squares will take place tomorrow (Friday 12th) on Facebook. Check it out!

New Easter Pattern!

I've made a lovely Easter inspired blanket for my new baby - Due in June!

The direct Ravelry link to purchase is >>here<<

It is also available on Etsy, click >>here<<

Sergeant Scraps was my sister’s white rabbit. I hesitated to name this blanket after him, as it may imply the use of scrap yarn! But he deserves it. He was a very well behaved Bunny!

This pram sized blanket measures 43 x 56 cm. (17 x 22 inches.) perfect for taking out of the house due to its size, that uses the technique of tapestry crochet.

Pattern Testers Wanted!

I have previously asked for pattern testers, with a great response. I'm currently looking for people who would like to be added to a pattern testing group on Facebook for myself and other crochet designers. If this sounds like something you would like to be a part of, please send me an email - crochetaheart (at)

Designers will post when they have a pattern ready, with specifications, like materials and deadline, and testers can choose to be a part of the test group by commenting.

Thanks once again.

Christmas Craft - Make it Merry!

Last month I was very fortunate to be invited to the Spotlight Stores Christmas launch for bloggers. We got to check out the new ranges and trends, and it got us a little bit excited for Christmas!

Now that November is here, it might seem a bit early, but I think it's necessary to plan ahead, especially if you are planning on making some of your own decorations!

I've started with a wreath for my front door. I also recently moved house, so it will be the first time decorating this place. I naturally decided to make a crochet wreath! This pattern is a beginner level.

I picked up a Decofoam Wreath and some 8ply  acrylic yarn - the Kringle value ball.

pictures from
Using a 3.5mm hook I made a chain of 40, and then (in US terms)
Row 1 : skip the first three chains, 37 dc chain three and turn.
Row 2 - 100 : 37 dc across (chain three and turn except last row)

Check your size against the decofoam wreath and bind off.

 It should fit very snug.

Using a whip stitch, or whatever you find easiest, sew the long ends together around the wreath.

Now you have a lovely base to add decorations to!

You can add anything, ready made or home made, and make a truly unique piece. I've decorated mine with hearts, made with this pattern.

Enjoy, and please share your pictures with me, here or on facebook!

I've also linked up with And Sew we Craft for their linky party!
