About Me

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 crocheting, sewing, crafty alter-ego. I live in a 170 year old weavers cottage in the North of England with Mr P, our two boys, a cat, some fish and a hamster. I also work part-time in a local school.  After the birth of my first child I felt like I had totally lost my way. I didn’t know who I was any more. Nine years later I am well on the road to re-discovery, but living in a house full of males I have to make a concerted effort to reclaim any girlyness for myself. Doing traditionally “girly” things is my way to do that. I have a passion for beautiful fabrics and yarns. And there’s nothing like a cup of coffee and a good piece of cake. 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.

  5. 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]

  6. 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 🙂
