I have 2 of the books and love love love them! You will too. I'm slowly trying them out and am delighted with them. I'll be intrigued to see what you make with them.
Big hugs

'Crochet Motifs' was my first crochet book- which I love! I purchased it- and a crochet hook- a few years ago with a gift certificate. My goal was to make one of every shape as I learned to crochet. I lost steam around #98 as I learned more and more and thought up, and worked on, various other projects- some inspired by YOU! I love your blog- have been following it for years now- Thank You! I too have been eye-ing the 'Borders' book also by Eckman- do let us know what you think!

Esther

I have those exact same books too and they are brilliant, I'm sure you will find lots of colourful inspiration :) I'm so with you on the weather front, how glorious it is to have some sunshine at last, fingers crossed it's still here for the Jubilee and half term!

Hi Lucy
think about this you are finishing the winter we are in middle of autumn is another point of view isn't it ?
Last Sunday I tried to made a lemon drizzle cake (according your recipe), but something wrong the cake was so floppy impossible to cut wiht the knife, I was thinking that I committed a mistake with the sugar because I used icingr sugar by caster sugar, here we have granulated or icing the caster sugar is something in between, bu this next Friday after work I will try with white granulated sugar. But I felt my self so connected with you during my baked Sunday thanks for that.

Hi Lucy - I have those three books, they're all lovely. A recent [incredibly fun, inspiring] publication you might want to add is the new Jessica Polka book called 75 Seashells, Fish, Coral and Colorful Marine Life. Amazing patterns.Keep Calm and Crochet On :-)

Fleur Cotton

I'm reading this a few days after you posted and I hope your prayers have been answered as here in Cheshire the sun is shining and looks like the sun is here to stay for a few days, hope the same is true over the pennines with you.

Really looking forward to seeing your May Garland - it is looking good!

Hope you get out for a picnic this week instead.
Sunny Smiles!

Same weather here - sooo depressing ..BUT, I, too have just bought Around the Corner Crochet Borders (already got her other one - Beyond the Square - brilliant)and a lovely friend recently bought me some Rowan handknit to try from England (just can't find it here), so I'll be snuggling up on the sofa to start a project today. Nice mug of tea, maybe I'll try your yummy sounding recipe, and look out at the POURING rain here and be happy I'm inside! i definitely won't be feeling guilty for sitting around! Fingers crossed June's a better month! x

Linda

I directed my Yorkshire friend to your blog as the day after you wrote about Bolton Abbey she sent me an email about visiting it too! On the strength of reading your post about your lovely orange roses she sent her husband out to track down a similar bunch which arrived on my doorstep as a birthday gift for me! They are looking beautiful in the bay window.

Melissa

Hi there Lucy!!

This is Melissa here (all the way) from Singapore!! Just wanna say Hi to you!!
I chanced upon your blog last year, by looking for a crochet bag pattern, and I saw this: http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/crochet-bag.html

It was absolutely wonderful I must say, and I also made one variation for myself over here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=344897065535038&set=a.344897032201708.87366.100000442410426&type=3&theater

Your blog is indeed a wonderful inspiration to me!! I introduced your blog to my mum as well, she said it was wonderful too!! My mum also wanted to send her regards to you as well, she said you have such an enthusiastic and positive attitude towards life, it was so infectious, that she was influenced by you as well!!

Ok from this post that I've just made, I hope to get to know you better, and I hope we can be friends too!! Take care, and please do send my regards to your family as well!! Thanks and Goodbye!!

Kind Regards,
Melissa

Emma

That recipe sounds amazing! I am always on the look out for home-make snack alternatives that I can take to work. I will give it a try on the weekend and let you know how I go!

We're coming into winter here so any excuse to use the oven to warm up the house!

Tery

I recently bought Crochet Motifs also! Loved it so much i bought several others! They were all here waiting for me when i came in from work! Looking forward to pouring through them tonight with a nice cup of tea! It's raining here in the states today also. Made your Flower Patch cushion for my mom for her 81st birthday! Came out beautiful! She loved it! Thanks for sharing it!

Simone

Oh Lucy, you poor thing, you sound so fed up with the weather and believe me it was like that here in Sydney. I felt robbed of my warm days, I honestly felt like I had never thawed out from the winter and my bones were cold. The sun just never did what it was meant too and the rain never stopped! Keep your chin up I'm sure the sun will be with you soon. Simone xx

Taylor

I want to try those delicious looking (healthy!) bars. I am also excited to hear those reviews. You've had some lovely pictures these last posts!Thanks again.

Ellen

I'm a sort of new reader. Not sure how I got here, but I very much enjoy your colorful photos and the lovely stories of your days. Thank you for sharing your life with the world. I hope you get some warmer sunnier weather soon! I live at the tip of the lower peninsula of Michigan, USA. Bless you!

Ellie

Hi - how do you manage to photograph such rich colours? I am a baker/quilter, and, inspired by your photographs/blog - have bought some lovely wool/bamboo needles to knit simple squares into blanket. Haven't knitted for ages! Thank you for sharing those precious moments!

Claudia

Lucy - I just found a phantastic page and thought it might interest you. So many patterns, more than we could manage in a life time!

I just got the book Around the Corner Crochet Borders from the library the other day. What a great book! I always have trouble knowing how many stitches to do on the sides, especially vertically. It was helpful. Hope you get some better weather soon.

Elizabeth Hansen

Chin up, Lucy! Hope today is sunny there in the north of England, as it's drizzling/cool here in Pennsylvania. Your recipe is smashing wonderful! Congrats! Looks yummy! My antedote to continually crummy weather is cheerful, snaptoe music: radio, stereo, cable, playing the piano...doesn't matter...lifts my heart! But, I adore Little B's tent...and cute little foot sticking out! Playtents are wonderful, and so is Amazon, and crochet books! Sunshiney hugs!

Joanne Munro

God, how do you even get around to reading these comments? I hardly ever comment as I can't believe you have the time!

May has been uncharacteristically gloomy this year and I live in Brighton where it's usually much sunnier than 'up norf'. It will perk up though I'm sure.

I have all 3 of those books myself (I'm a bit of a sucker for crochet books) they're all really good especially the one with 200 blocks. I recently made a gorgeous soft (Baby rico) white blanket for a friend's baby using mixed blocks from the book. It's great for inspiration. It's on my blog is you fancy a look.

Lucy

I am going to make those bars! SO healthy too.... thanks for sharing hope the weather is better soon
hugs & love

Angie

I have the Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs book, LOVE IT!! =) I'm sure you will too...what am I saying-I am sure you have already been hard at work on testing it! ;)
