Non avevo mai visto un lavoro così bello!


I love your applique work. I hope you won't mind that I've posted up the photos of your work with the link on my (very new) blog. If you would prefer that I don't, please just let me know and I'll take it down. I look forward to more lovely pieces from you!


Your work is absolutely delightful. I'm glad to see that you are finding time to make your art again. I can relate. While I enjoy the being able to be home with my kids, I do look forward to the day that I can spend some time in the studio.
I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful creations. :~)


Beautiful work! I simply love the colours...I think we really have a very similar taste.


Oh my, you are clever. I just can't even contemplate this free embroidery lark, it looks so difficult!

I love your colors and your style. I just had to show my husband your work and ended up showing your crochet work as well. I'm the person that asked the colors you used in your ripple blanket. Can I ask what colors you used for your hexagon blanket? Also, when you chose cotton, how do you care for it? I can't imagine you washing it by hand!! Finally, do you know of any vendor online that will sell you color cards for Rowan or Debbie Bliss yarn? Thank you.

Lucy these are fantastic! I love the Robin Hood's bay ones and the flowers are so bright and zingy. Really great!


These are just precious! I've been thinking of doing something similar on a canvas to hang in my living room - definately inspiring!
Take care and have a gorgeous weekend doll!

Go for it! Even if initially you just do it for the love of stitching! Not everything has to be justified. You could do it just for you - remember that? Doing what you want for no reason more than that you fancied doing it? I'm sure that's what we could do BC? Couldn't we? I'm sitting in my workroom and a little person has joined me and is drawing at my sewing table with his felt pens......arggghh! t.x


Wow! I have just stumbled across your blog and am delighted to have done so! Your work is gorgeous. Thank you so much for sharing it!



you really should look to do more of these and open your own etsy shop they are really beautiful and cheerful and just the sort of thing that makes people smile on dreary weather days.



simply beautiful - and an Etsy shop is a must !!


I have been wanting to create textile pictures for such a long time Lucy and I think you may have inspired me to do so. You are very creative and I am sure you will be able to pick up where you left off BC.


I have been lurking for a while but just had to post when I saw these. Wonderful vibrant colours and I love the stiching details.They are fabulous I think an Etsy store is defintely called for.Congratulations !


Can't. Choose. Favourite.
Too. Difficult.

I would love to see a little fabric picture of number 24.


Really lovely!! Thanks for showing them to us.


These are gorgeous. I love love love, the last one. Thank you for sharing. Please an etsy shop.

Delurking to say: Your work is beautiful, thank you so much for sharing it with us. I especially love the zig zag jug! It's so cheerful and zings right off the screen!

By the way, where might I find a pattern for the crochet flower scarf in your previous post? I adore it and must make one for myself!

Take care,

Vickie (lurking no more)


Lucy they are so Lovely you are so talented. I specially love the last one of the blue vase and daisies. The perspective and arrangement are super.


Oh, please do open your shop, Lucy. Your creative talent truly needs to be shared with a wider audience. I am partial, of course, to your seascapes but I love these flowers too. Just wonderfully colorful and beautiful..... like YOU!


Oh I love your textile work those colours are just so bright and beautiful, get thee to Etsy quick and set up shop!


Lucy, you are officially the happy colors princess. You have such a gift, it's impossible not to smile when looking at your work! These little textile compositions are so lovely with their stitched details.

I've been a SAHM for the past 24 years. (My youngest is now in university, but I grew too fond of making my own daily schedule!) Throughout, squeezed in amid all the kids' activities and appointments, I found creative activities such as quilting and artmaking to be essential for my own well-being.

Etsy offers great possibilities, but one possible problem... your Etsy shop would always be empty, because everyone would snap up your cheery artwork immediately!


Thanks so much for sharing again! I love flowers and bright colors, so these make me very, very happy :) I hope that you do get to get back to work again if it makes you happy. If you open an etsy shop, I think you should consider selling prints, postcards, and notecards of your art so that people can enjoy your art and send it to their friends, even if they can't afford a fabulous, original textile piece :)


Lucy they are just fabulous! You're so creative and I am an envious Clairey!!
