Hello and a very warm welcome. Thanks for stopping by and having a look at my blog.
My name is Trish, but Patch is my blogging alter-ego. I am the only female in a house full of males (even the gerbils are male!). I love them all to bits and wouldn’t change a thing…. but they also drive me crazy.
Fortunately I’m not a traditionally “girly” girl; I’m happier with a pint than a prosecco; I positively hate pink but I love a Star Wars movie marathon.
Life is often chaotically busy here with work, school, music lessons, scouts… De-stressing is necessary and is usually found by releasing my creative energy through crochet or knitting, with other crafts thrown in from time to time.
This blog is about my life and all the things I make as I travel through it, the messes and mistakes (and there are lots of those!) but hopefully some successes too. I hope you’ll find something to interest you. So grab a coffee, sit down and enjoy.
Thanks for the follow! Seems like we are on similar journeys! I look forward to perusing your blog 🙂

I’ve nominated your blog for an award. If you choose to accept, great! If you don’t like to take part in awards for any reason at all, there is no need to tell me. Just enjoy a few extra visitors to your blog from the link in my post here
Thank you Dearest…. Always flattering 😀
I love your patchwork. Love the colors you combine together.
I’m mystified as to the method of accessing your site (no link to that magnificent throw), but I shall persevere. Never seen any site with so many awards ! – in spite of which I’ll delve in. [grin]
Which throw are you looking for?? I’ll see if I can find it for you.
Wow, I love your blog, so many colourful pictures. I love arts and crafts in general but in particular enjoy sewing and want to try crocheting too. Been reluctant to start after having difficulty learning to knit but you’re blog pictures make me want to start 🙂
Thank you! Crochet is great because you can do it anywhere…. I rarely sew these days because it means going off to another room on my own to find the sewing machine. Find a good tutorial of the basics and take it slow and you’ll be fine.
Thanks, will try my best, I’m sure I’ll enjoy it once I learn 🙂 ❤
