Love the sound of your crochet chair, I have a fireside chair by the patio doors in the lounge. My cat QT often sleeps on it if the sun's shining in. I don't think he's too happy with me sitting in 'his' chair on sunny days.


That is my dream. To one day have a chair in a sunny spot to read and craft. Good for you!

Your bay window crochet spot looks like paradise! How cozy and wonderful... I'm very jealous, but I know one day my craft room will have a lovely window, and I'll fashion a window seat by it that will be my very own cozy paradise. :)
*happy sigh*


You have a very beautiful blog! And I love your crochet work! So very colourful!


Very pretty pictures, and great works all along your blog. I can't read you because I don't speak english : I'm french, and you know, french people have a very bad english.
Enjoy !


thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!


I am so glad I stopped by to see what you have been up to. I have been thinking about crocheting a bag for a friend for the upcoming holidays and this is perfect...thank you for sharing the pattern.


I just love your flowers and leaves...how gorgeous! Thankyou for sharing your pattern and the helpful turtorial, when I get some spare time I am SO making flowers!

do you mind if i knit

Aaaahh! Those days when the furniture was pieces rescued from skips and junk shops! Brings back some memories................... I'm very glad I've moved on from broken springs, and dust sheets used as covers...........................
Your crochet flowers are wonderful Lucy................... you're very generous with your free patterns................ thankyou............................
It's pouring with rain, and cold, here today................... maybe we'll get your sunshine later........................

I love that first photo!! what a beautiful place to sit and crochet, love your hexagons too! just gorgeous!!

Wonderful place to crochet, to read, to rest. Your blog is very nice!


I made 2 flowers already and now a hexagon. I love them both - I have a question on the yarn you used for the hexagon afghan. Was one skein of each color? I can never judge how much yarn is needed for any one project. Thank you for the fun afternoon I have had playing with your designs!!


I made my first crochet flower the other day but your looks even cuter with those various colours so I shall definitely be giving it a go. Thanks so much for taking the time to write the pattern out for us.
Just come back from the CL fair, I am knackered! Saw Kathy and her jewellery. She's looking forward to seeing you on Saturday. Have a lovely time.

P.S. I also went to Loop for the first time, it's just up the road. I imagine you'll want to go... (plenty of cash needed!)


I just had some flowers, leafy, hooky fun. The flowers turned out so cute and your tutorial is excellent. I had not problem at all - thanks again.


your chair looks really comfy. The crochet makes it heavenly.
Lovely flowers too.


I was just thinking about flowers and leaves a couple of days ago. I am learning so much from you.

Thanks for sharing.

I have started the hexagons. I wanted to know if you could tell me of another technique to join the hexagons together. Your how tos are excellent but I'm afraid i'm not getting anything done now. I've been thinking about the bag lately?! and now there are flowers and leaves.Keep up the great blog - I so look forward to it. Thanks Debbie.


What a beautiful sunny spot you have there. I just love all of the cheerful colors you have splashed about. I really need to bring more color into my home. My husband is not the bright flowery cheerful type (he's a mid-century modern type, and I can appreciate that aesthetic too), so I hold back, but I think if I'm the one that has to be here staring at these 4 walls day in and day out, I might as well make it colorful and place a few florals here and there. :~)

Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us. I will be sitting down to try my hand at these flowers very soon. I'll be sure to let you know how it goes. Have a wonderful sunny day! :~)


Just had a lovely time catching up on your blog as been really busy lately. What an enjoyable read. I LOVE your beautiful painting, no wonder you fell in love with it.
Gosh, thank you so much for taking the time to teach us all to crochet as well as you. I'm just going to have to have a go now. I remember when my grandmother taught me how to knit and crochet but that was yonks ago! Is it like riding a bike? when I start will it all come flooding back?!!! I'm really looking forward to it, thanks for the inspiration.

Gorgeous crochet as always.I look forward to reading your blog!
Here in Devon,it is sunny, cold and crisp!


Such a lovely spot. I feel I want to sit myself and make some crochet.


it will be hard to wait for the pattern!!
here, in north-east of France, it's a little sunny.
I hope too I could find a little (or big?!!) moment this evening to sit in my favorite chair and to hook ( I try to make a riple afghan crochet)
Have a good day


Lucky you Lucy, here in Barcelona it's raining! But it's not a complain, as we have a lot of sunny days here.
Of course I'm waiting for your new tutorial, you are spoiling us!
Oh, if you want to enter in a little giveaway that I'm doing in my blog, you are very welcome (infact everyone is welcome!).
To celebrate my birthday (i was yesterday) I would like to give a handmade ring, needlefelted by me. You can see the details at my blog.
