Hi there used your tutorial to make some flowers and then found your garland which is so pretty. I want to make one for my daughters birthday in a couple of weeks, can you tell me how to make the long string to attach the flowers and leaves to please? It looks like a couple of rows of sc but I am not sure...and am so very rusty at crocheting? P.S. the blankets are divine.


Hi Lucy, gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Love the idea it is going to look fab (of course!). You are such an inspiration to me. Please, what are the colours you have used for the bottom square shown on top of your box of pencils and handdrawing? (Dk pink centre, lt pink, etc). They are exactly my sort of colours! I am trying to learn granny squares but am having a terrible time, (I am using the purlbee pattern) and just can not get it. I have though made your flower and leaves, and your bonne mamman cover. Yipee! Kathyx


words fail me - your work is just so gorgeous, it just makes me want to run down to my local wool shop and buy buy buy, if only i had both the time & money to do a project like this, you really are so inspiring (maybe i'll manage a cushion cover!)


Love all the yarn for the new blanket and the structure you're using while still keeping a random element. Love the way you're using smaller squares to make bigger ones, loke a flower bed, too! Look forward to seeing this blanket grow.

Your blanket is going to be beautifull!


I think you are achieving everything you have set out to do with this blanket. It's fabulous so far, and I can only imagine how beautiful it will be when it is all done.

Good for you for supporting your local yarn supplier. I'm glad that they worked with you. That yarn looks so soft!


I just found your blog a couple of days ago and I have already read through all of the archives. My mom is fantastic at crocheting. Today she started teaching me and I already understand all of the stitching. I am so excited to get started on a blanket. Thanks so much for the inspiration and tutorials.:)


The blankets are stunning! I can't wait for your granny square pattern, I hate sewing them together, but for a blanket of those squares I would be happy to...especially since I can take my girls yarn shopping to choose the colors they want. I'm going to have to hop back over to Cathleen's blog and thank her for the link to you! I'd also love to know where you got the pattern for your hex blanket.

Hello Lucy
I discovered your fabby blog last week and have been hooked since. I read with delight when your order arrived and smiled with recognition at the sheer feeling of indulgence you had at squandering such a lot of the hard earned cash on something to make your heart sing. I'm a beader myself,just getting into sewing. My partner laughed when I told him i'd heard tale of someone else who can't walk past smooth glass from the beach, re-pots supermarket bulbs and squeals when they find something delicious for a sixpence in a charity shop. I also discovered etsy last month... lots of eye rolling from said partner and look forward to seeing your shop. Keep blogging.
Love Alison


Very beautiful and the white works really well too! ... :0)

I love the collors you use. It is so tropical! I love your craftworks.


I wish I could crochet. They look so beautiful. I wish I could crochet. Oh heavy, heavy sigh.


cannot wait to see the finished blanket! beautiful color combinations. :)


Your mosaic of flowers is breathtaking! I love just staring at it. And, Lucy, I am really excited about your new blankie...the colors are exquisite. Between the flowers and your new project, it makes me dream of spring and all my flowers blooming. Hope you are staying warm in your home...we have been well below zero for days now.
