Absolutely adorable!!!


Your TRP are adorable, sounds like a lot of fun! I really like your new heading, and your very colorful crocheting!

Oh, I LOVE your family represented on toilet rolls! My son made singing carolers out of toilet rolls when he was very young, and I have always put them out every Christmas. (He will be 21 in November.) Just this past year, I realized how much I loved them, so I made some myself and HAD SO MUCH FUN MAKING THEM! Here's the thing though, the ones he made in 1st grade are better than the ones I made. HA! You have now inspired me to make my family! THANK YOU!!


Your Ta-dah posts are great, Lucy!! I love them and I love your TRP family! I feel I know you better now... rsrsrsr
Me and my boy have also done our TRP family and it was a great fun!! :)


Oh Lucy ~ I LOVE your little TRP family ~ only you could make cardboard tubes look so fantastic! I'm sure that if I tried it myself it would be a complete disaster! Loving the Julia Crossland print ~ have got the very same one myself. Hope you all have a lovely weekend ~ Jackie :O) xx


They look SUPER! Very lovely. You did a great job.

Hi Lucy,
What a fab project - I mentioned it on my blog, in actual fact I mention you often as I love reading about your adventures and looking at your colourful pictures/projects!
I was looking through your monthly mosaics and wonder if you can tell me what photoshop template you use to come up with them? I would like to make mosaics of my own but not sure where to start!
I wouldn't be surprised if a book deal comes your way sometime soon!
lovely! xx


They are so cute, what a great project. Adore the button jug as well.

What a GREAT JOB you all did!!!! Love them! Way too cute!!!!!
I think my daughter would love this project....thanks for the idea!


Your TRP are so sweet! They've turned out perfectly.
Little Lady does look very much like you, yes indeed.
I LOVE your new blog as well, about time you got your stitchy banner up there! It's so pretty.
Oh and btw - we're definitely not completing tomorrow :-( stupid lazy bank!


I adore this! I've been reading your blog for awhile now. All the bright crochet first caught my attention & your writing has hooked me. I am always cheered after seeing your photographs & reading your posts. It's really made me appreciate my every day simple pleasures so much more. You are so good at that.

You & your kids did such an amazing job turning a simple fun thing into a precious work of art to treasure - especially the memories. Thanks for sharing it with us.

I love that little cardboard family. Definitely a ta-dah moment. Your blog never fails to cheer me up a bit.


fantastic work. Never thought TPRs could be so adorable. :)Love to read your post and to see your lovely TRP family



This family is so cute!!!
I am living in germany and I cannot understand all in the posts but I like your blog so much, visiting every week if I have time...

Kind Regards


I absolutely adore browsing through your blog! It brightens by day.


They are just beautiful, such a good idea and do you mind if I pinch the idea to do with my Beavers Scouts as they would love to make little people?

Clare Hill

OMG I am in absolute delights of happiness reading this post and seeing your TRP family! You all did such a fantastic job!! They look soooo gooood! I am so envious of your TRP skills, in fact all your skills! Can I use any more exclaimation marks?!!!! *clapping*




Seriously Lucy - how in the world can you possible make a toilet paper roll look so darn cute?!!?
You are one amazingly creative lady!


This is such a fun post and I enjoyed it so much. Thanks for the smiles :)

What a lovely wee family you have. No wonder you are so proud of them all. I am in the process of copying your beautiful bright granny stripe blanket but I think I might be taking the copycatting a bit far if I was also to immortalise my family by means of cardboard loo roll tubes!

Emma Angel

Awwwwww, so sweet.


Simply gorgeous!!!!


I just love that lovely little TRF !!!!!!!!!!!!
What a great job. You have a very talented Family.
I Last Of The Summer Wine. Maybe you could do Compo and his boots and Nora? Only kidding.
Hmmmmm would be a hoot.
Love you and thanks for the lovely share.
