Beautiful cushion. atahe button detail is fabulous.


Hi Luce,
The cushion looks fabulous - obviously I would expect nothing less from you! Buttons are too cute! Can't wait to see the hex blanket all finished, must be so satisfying to be nearly there. And with each finished project, the even more exciting prospect of what to do next! Have gone a bit crochet flower crazy here, will show you soon. Took my first one into my crochet course today along with your printed-out instructions so there'll be more admiring visitors coming your bloggy way!

Love the cushions they look fab what a great idea. I once made a cushion with a pair of old 'Burberry' trousers, expensive cushion that turned out to be, infact I think its now in the cats bed.......

Lovely view, I look out of our bedroom window, through a few trees over dartmore...



Your blog is the highlight of my day - I am a crochet lover and your work is unbelievable. Your sense of color is amazing.


If I could crochet, thats what I would do!


it turned out GREAT!!

(i just love the little details you added with the buttons)


hi Lucy, I'm French too and I found your blog (just like Cécile and many others I think) via Ana Maria Horner's, and what a gorgeous discover ! I wish I had half your talent (and persistence!)! What an inspiration !

Oh my God, you are a genius. :~)


ooohhh I love your crochet post, lovely cushion, I like the idea of using a jumper for the back.
Thought I'd tell you the story of my/your crochet flowers..... I was playing around with the pattern you posted & saw on Hen's blog that Liberty's were doing flower brooches so I thought I'd give it ago. I made the flowers larger I made 3 & put them all together with a button in the centre. Anyway I wore it to work & a lady who owes a flower shop has asked me to supply her with some!!!! However she will only pay £3 each so I'm not sure if it's worth doing....need to get very quick at making them!! :)

just too much colour and excitement in one post! I need a cuppa! t.x

do you mind if i knit

Fabulous cushion Lucy!............... And I love the row of multi-coloured buttons on the back.................... and the feast of colour on the front.................... Lovely button picture too............................


What beautiful colours - and I'm pleased to see you've used some zesty orange. I've only recently discovered how useful orange is at making other shades really pop and adding a quirly tone to a fabric. I used to hate orange but now I can't get enough.


I'm making these crocheted cushions for a christmas present and it looka alot like yours (mine is a big granny square). But iff it turns out like yours, I'm so happy.
Love your blog!


I loved all of thme. The colors are perfect..
Bye from Bodrum, Turkiye..


Hi Lucy. I've only just found this page and I'm so pleased I have. I wondered how you'd done that cushion and now I know. Just one question though. Did you sew the jumper onto the front, on the wrong side and then turn it inside out? Does that make sense? Please help :)


many thanks for your 'bonjour et bienvenue' to us, your French readers;o)...I discovered your blog in few weeks ago;o)

I'm beginner at crochet...I would love to try to crochet my first blanket...^^

May I ask you wich pattern do you usually use for Granny Square old america????

many thanks if you answer to me;o) I hope you understand me;o)


I thought i'd better post something, because the sight of the back of this cushion made me give a loud happy groan (which the children are now imitating!). What a great idea to use an old jumper for the back of the cushion! And I love the buttons SO MUCH. I've often struggled with the idea of what to use as a backing for crochet cushions (I don't have the patience to crochet both sides). BTW, I also loved the previous post about your gorgeously decorated house - it's gone in my ideas folder for my new house (hope you don't mind)
Anyway, enough gushing...
