Hi Lucy, the cushion is a sensation,, well done you...I would have been terrified to cut up an old jumper in case it unravelled....Isn't lt lovely when the offsrping comment on them, makes it all the more worthwhile. glad you made the show....yum yum...have cut all my reclaimed liberty fabric into 4 inch squares and sewed the rows together and now have to join the rows...first ever quilt...WARNING...very addictive, take care xx

Hello Lucy,
How well the jumper matches your beautiful crochet work!
And, oh, I am ever so envious of your view - and ever ever so happy for you!
I have a question. My husband and I would like to visit Britain next May for three weeks. Do you have any suggestions as to where it is nice (we live in Germany). All the brochures are overwhelming, I am trying to get some ideas from real people...
Hope I am not being too direct.
All the best!


"to stroll in the colour"

yes. this is exactly why i love to visit your blog. i sigh every time i see a new post; especially those with your crochet. i LOVE your use of color. seriously heart-stopping.

your pillow is perfection. absolute perfection.


elizabeth of course

Marevlous, all that colour! It's brightened me up for sure as it's awful dreary here today. I adore the button-y back. Wonderful!


that is so cute! i just leanred how to crochet and i am loving it. love you blog!


You are a talented match-maker! The recycling is a grand idea, that really has unlimited possibilities. And those buttons ... nothing quite like them in my button boxes.



Oh my Gosh, it's so fun to read your posts - I had to let you know that.
Besides, your photos and your work are just beautiful!!!
I have been following your work on flickr and always liked it, but now I'm hooked here too!!!!
By the way, love the cushion, might have to make one for myself, if you allow me!?


love the cushion, how clever to finish it off like that, it's just perfect.


Bonjour Lucy, ou si je dis, aime, aime, aime le cusion, c'est splendide! Kathy


I just love all your colourful crochet, i did buy some wool to start to crochet and make a ripple blanket like yours but still no one has helped me to begin!! I am very jealous of all your lovely crocheted blankets, I WANT one too!! love your blog too, I am usually a lurker but do love it and pop by most days. x


Hi Lucy, love, love, love the cushion it is gorgeous and love the back too. You are v. clever. Kathyx


Perfection, Lucy. The luscious colors of the yarn, buttons, and jumper look very happy together.


Gorgeous stuff! I'm getting along very nicely with the flowers and granny squares, and now you throw that one in - what's a girls supposed to do?? Thank you for all your crochet hints, you're so generous to let us all in on the act!
I love it when the children appreciate all my handmade goodies. After the fair last week they went through all the leftovers and allocated themselves bits and pieces (without fighting - miracle!)

You are so talented. I wish you sold them, because I would buy the lot!


That is such a good idea to use the cotton jumper for the cushion backing. I like the way that you put a crochet trim along the edge and added colourful buttons. Fun and funky! Is funky still a fashionable word?!!!


I have to say i just love the cushion, it really makes me want to sit down and practice what i have learnt then forgotten. And you always have brillant colours just perfect fot the dull old, cold winter days that we seem to be getting. Well done on all your visits, i don't think you appreciate how much we enjoy reading your posts, they always make my day, and to see your photos and be just generally nosey about your life.


I LOVE that pillow, Lucy. LOVE IT. Have you given any thought to an Etsy shop with crochet stuff AND your textiles?? Seriously! I would BUY THEM.

Lucy Locket-Pocket

Oh Lucy! That's some really lovely cottony-cushiony goodness you've got going on! I love your cushion (especially the buttony back) and all your crochet is beautiful - such fab colours!

I found my way back to your blog (I think I saw it once before when I first started mine) purely by accident over the weekend but I'm so very glad I did!

Hi Lucy!
I love your blog too!
Here on the coast of Sao Paulo where I live is a beautiful day of sunshine too, but we are approaching the summer I love the sun too.
I also love your house full of colors and beautiful things. Thank you for sharing your joys.


100,000 visits!!!!! that's wonderful :0D I'm so happy I found your blog Lucy and it's nice to think of the possibility of hundreds of people all baking banana bread and orangey biscuits and crocheting lovely coloured things.
I wish I could join in with the crocheting but no matter how many online instructions I look at I just can't get past the first chain. I'm going to ask all the Mums at school and see if anyone can show me because it's very sad looking at all the beautiful things - (especially the flowers) and only being able to make a long string!
Wishing you lots of sunshine today!

Hi there..it's always lovely to see your projects as they are so colourful and cheery ;-)


I love your cushion, so cheerful and comfy looking :) I thought I recognised the buttons too - I was also at Harrogate this weekend. My friend Victoria had a stand there with the most exquisite christening gowns so I was there to give her a hand. I did wonder if any other bloggers would be there so I'm pleased you had a good time :) I think I might have annoyed the button lady more than you - I got over 150 buttons in my little bag!!

Lace hearts

How gorgeous that looks - I love it. If you ever get bored of it ... lol.
So, I have to add that cushion to my long list of crochet have to dos! Oh dear, how am I ever going to get it all done! xxx
