where ould i get the pattern from for you beautiful cushoin


tebrikler bravo çok güzel olmuş ellerinize sağlık motifler için teşekkürler


hello! i live in australia and stumbled upon your blog by chance and am really really really really inspired and wowed by all your creations =D they're just so beautiful and colourful!

i just turned 17, and picked up crocheting beginning of this year, because at school we were knitting/crocheting squares to sew into blankets to send to the poor and also to the victorian bushfire victims for winter. and now that winter's almost over we've stopped and i really wanted to start something of my own and then i stumbled upon your blog! =D

i just LOVE your granny flower patch, and i really would want a few for the cushions in my room. i'm just wondering about what wool to buy and everything, considering that i have a limited budget (need to persuade parents) but want it to be of a decent (but not excellent) quality; and also what needle size you used.

thanks in advance, and (in danger of repeating myself) i love love LOVE your work =DD

I love your Granny's Flower Patch. I love all your beautiful things. Trying hard to make some myself...such fun. But I'm having trouble finding pretty bright yarn. I live in a small,rather remote area. Surely I can get more choices on line, but I'm not having much luck. Can you help? Keep making and taking pictures. Just looking at it all makes me so happy. Thank You! Sharon


Oh Lucy you really are talented. I have utterly fallen in love with your cushion.

I have my granny squares all made and almost all the flowers to go with. Please advise how you attach them to the squares. I have lot of tails off the flowers I saved in case I might use them. Looking closer it looks like you stitched the flower down on each color row? Looking forward to your counsel. I'll have to figure out how to send you a pic when done.


That is just so beautiful, I wish I knew how to crochet. My grandma tried to teach me once, but because I couldn't hold the cotton properly, she gave up. Sadly she is now long gone and I still can't crochet.

Gorgeous!!! Absolutely gorgeous!!!


Oh, and I meant to say that the warm colored flowers just popping off of the cool backgrounds is stunning! Well done!


Oh my goodness, Woman! You've done it again. I love this cushion so much! I'm glad to hear that you are on the mend.

Once again, another beautiful creation, Lucy!! I love all the colours you use (candy for the eyes!) and reading your feel-good blog. Speaking of "feel-good", I hope your cold gets better soon, there's nothing worse than feeling poorly.... You really do inspire me to crochet (I have to learn first!) with all the awesome projects you have created! To choose a favourite...?? Too hard!X


Absolutely beautiful! I love how cozy and cheery and bright the colors are! And what a labor of love-- granny squares never looked so good!


Absolutely beautiful Lucy!
You must be so thrilled with the outcome.
Scrummy colours.

"snot-in-the-head" Oh my Goodness! LMSO!!!
And those flowers on grannies are a great idea. We have one like that done in pinks for a little girl. AND I just started a giant granny from an already large granny I found in the cellar. This could be just the thing to break up all that green I have going on there. Thanks for the idea! I'm always so inspired when I come by here. You take such wonderful photos.

I ADORE this cushion. It might even tip me into the whole crochet thingy. I am fighting the urge but I can feel my defences crumbling.


I am so inspired by your crochet that I have put a post on my blog linking to your blog, hope this is okay with you, I have also added you to my blog roll.
best wishes


Lovely, the flowers are beautiful against the muted greens. Very pretty.
Happy New Year.


I just found your blog via '1/4 of an Inch', and I'm so glad I did! I love your colourful granny's flower patch cushion.


Lucy you really do have a way with colour and your crocheting is fantastic. I love them.

Hi, I popped over from Tracy's after seeing the lovely houses she won in your giveaway, and I am stunned by the gorgeousness of your blog!

You make me want to pick up a hook and start crocheting immediately - although I won't do that as sadly I only have heaps of acrylic to hand, but I see a trip to Hobbycraft coming on!

Thank you for brightening this cold cold morning with such warm and colourful photos - your cushion is delicious!!


ps. If you notice your stats going up, that'll be me scrolling through your archives and being late for work ....


Lucy, I came across your blog recently and it "blew my mind". I love your explosion of colours and your works are masterpieces. I enjoyed stolling down with you on your walk and was thoroughly entertained by your "twist of phrase". Thank you ...I will be visiting again. Hope you are feeling much better.


They look just Fabulous!!!!! Love the colours and the one with the flowers is yummie!


Lucy your cushion is beautiful love your choice of colour.

Lara (thornberry)

I am absolutely in love with that cushion - in fact, I am in love with every single item that you crochet. You really are a crochet goddess - your choice of colours is just so beautiful. I only found your blog a couple of months ago and enjoy it thoroughly. Thanks so much for sharing.


What a beautiful cushion. Gee, I wish I could crochet. I've had three master crocheters try to teach me, but it just won't stick in my brain. sigh. Oh well, I have enough hobbies anyway.
