It's so nice, I just absolutely love all those bright colours.

I really wasn't sure where you were going with the wooly Christmas card thing. I so enjoyed looking at the photos as it came together and was totally surprised about makin the photo for a card. I LOVED IT! You are such a totally creative person. Merry Christmas to you and yours.



WOW!!!! Absolutely and totally gorgeous!!!!!


looks so pretty ,what a great idea

Brenda B.

What a great idea!! I wish I had your creativity!! Beautifully done.. Merry Christmas!


Such a gorgeous card! I never would have thought to do that myself, but it seems so logical for you. You amaze me, yet again!


What a nice nice Idea!
Love it !
Brillant Lucy!


Merry Christmas, Lucy! What a bright, beautiful idea! Thank you for all of the joy you add to my days; whenever I am feeling blue, your blog gives me a lift. I am looking forward to more of your brilliant creative inspiration in 2013!




What a fun idea...thanks for sharing!


Good Morning from Connecticut, Lucy!
Could you share this information on a scarf project we have going for our Newtown Neighbors??

Knit? Crochet? Sew?? We are making scarves for the 80 staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown. Please visit www.sentimentallyme.blogspot.com for information, and read up on my own family's connection to Newtown.

Please help spread the word!

Kellie from Indiana

Very creative! Turned out beautifully! I am gobsmacked, truly!


Gorgeous. What not try to get on to Clintons and see if they'd be interested in commissioning the photo. I love it


Wow, it is very very beautiful!


Fantastic idea and beautifully done!
Can anyone recommend a company for professionally printing such things?

Amanda Greenhart

I love it! It is like the best parts of Kirby's Epic Yarn (video game set in a knit and sewed world). Also, what you said about taking the idea "out of the Messy place" resonated with me. :)
I wonder if there is a way to make the cards textured like the original? It would be so neat if they were embossed so you could feel stitches on the paper...


Brilliant Lucy! Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas. Thanks for all your inspiring words and creations - you make the world a happy, colourful place.


Awesome idea! Love the final result... so cute.


I lo-ve it!!!!! Hope you have a great Christmas!!!!


Lovely card. And i just adore the colours.


What a great idea! I think I might adapt it to other kinds of cards too. You don't mind, do you?


OMGoodness!! What a great, original design. Have you tried scanning it? Since it is flat it can get you an even better image. What a great idea!!

Have a great Christmas and all the health and happiness for the next year!!



OMGA! Love it! I made some snowmen doorstops a couple of Christmas's ago from some white "poodle-like" fabric, knitted scarves fimo noses etc... and then photographed them to make my cards with. Life is good....


You really do have a Creative Mind! That is genius!
