Hey Luce!!!
As always your colors brighten my day!! I have a question..: What spectacular yarn did you use for your new granny throw???? It's so fresh, bright and FUN!!!
It's so crazy to me how our tastes are so very similar. My mum asks me why I need stripes on every possible item that surrounds me!! And I tell her how much I do love color and I LOVE stripey stuff!! I so see myself in you and I just can't get enough of your creativity...it's so inspiring:)
I checked out a website you suggested (the deckchair stripes website) and I nearly fainted right there!! I've ordered many yards of the stripey goodness and I cannot wait until I receive it!! So thank you very much for your continued contribution and your massive color inclusion! I LOVE IT!!!
So...what kind of yarn did you use again??:)
It would be great if you would share that info. with me!!
Thanks again as always,

I am wanting to re-create this Throw - I have a shade card from Rown to see which colours I need, but I can't quite see which colours they are.

Can you PLEASE list the colours you used for this Throw

Thanks very very much in advance

Claire (North Norfolk)


I'm a very recent crocheter and just discovered your very lovely blog. My first love and craft is quilting but I feel a yarn stash about to happen. Thanks for a very inspiring blog. I have you bookmarked and will be back to visit.


the grannies turns out to be very very attractive with your colors combination. and your new round cushion, it looks like lollipop candy, so sweeeet. u have got two successful projects this year, nice start.


i love visiting your blog ! it's always so colorful !!


Sorry to hear you've not been feeling so great Lucy, poor you.
It must be tough feeling like you've got no friends, especially when you only get 66 friendly loving comments of support!
Now come on and pull yourself together. You have a wonderful life, a gorgeous family, and you are a lovely, beautiful person, who is very talented. I think that maybe you've let all this slip your mind, don't you?
Now here's a big virtual hug. And like a big bossy mother hen, I'm going to say, dust yourself off, and count your blessings. You've got all of us, remember!
lots of love and big hugs, Vanessa xxx

This blanket is so lovely. I love all the bright yarn, I seem to have issues finding such colors here.
Is this a man made pattern of square, or did you follow something? Would love to try it.
Awesome Awesome Blog ;)


I do so love your blanket in progress, and that ROUND cushion!!! wow!!!

Question : your round, is it the same principle as the bottom of your bag???? I think I'd like a round cushion too, and that throw, and hey, if ever you tire of your things.... well, you can send them on to me!!!!!

take care!!!! Happy hookin'

Hope you're feeling alittle brighter today

beautiful cushions and blanket, i am still busy with my little squares! I think after a lovely week with all the family you are bound now to feel a bit lost, i hope very much you feel better soon ! xx noellexx


gorgeous work, I wan't to sit back and crochet now!


Yet another wonderfully bright & colourful FO. You really are an inspiration, so much so that I have set up my own blog www.tanskiknits.blogspot.com which I have wanted to do for ages but never had the courage to do it.It would be lovely if you came & visited me there.


Hello Lucy

Only just found your lovely blog, I really enjoy reading it, I love crochet and only recently started it up again now my kids are a bit older. I love the bright colours you use,could you tell me where you get them? do you order them online, or in a local shop? We have one little shop and they are expensive and don't have a good range of bright colours.
You have inspired me, thank you for sharing


I really like the round cushion, but I love, love, love the wee granny throw. I was a bit undecided on it before, but the addition of the granny rows has catapulted it to the top of my (very full) list of crochet favourites (most of which flow from your hook, I might add!)

I understand the loneliness too and the deep joy and relief that crafting brings - my husband works 'up North' for three weeks out of four, and I don't have many friends here, but I know I can always find friends online.

Best wishes and thank you for all the colour!


i love your new pillow, fantastic job...Love the grannies of course also,its beautiful..
I hope you feel much better soon..
prayers and hugs,


I'm loving the throw.

As a SAHM I really appreciate those hours I get to myself. Most of the time my days are filled with people and noise and doing stuff for others. I don't think I've ever felt lonely.
And thank goodness for the internet too.


I'm one of those "hidden" friends who reads your blog with joy but doesn't yet have a blog of their own. I've never left a comment on anyones blog but absolutely had to when I read your latest post. So glad to hear that i'm not the only one feeling a bit lost now the hols are over. My daughter is fab company.You give so much joy to us readers/friends. Don't feel lonely. You're loved.x


great great great and ... super great ;-)


Whoops, I forgot the hugs! ooooooooooooooo


Oh Luce, I feel so sad for you feeling sad. Maybe you should try to go and visit your Mum at the beach more often. Or at least have a trip there planned so you have something to look forward to. I know what you mean about everyone being too busy to get together. Sometimes it's just so lovely to sit with a friend instead of your usual activities. I would easily give up any plans I had to sit in one of your comfy chairs and rest on your georgous cushions. I love them all, but if I had to pick one it would be the flower one. You are amazingly clever! Loving the blanket too by the way, would also love one of those. Sending hugs your way!

Amy Woo

That blanket is lovely, your skills are enviable!

The Curious Cat

So vibrant and that quilt looks positively cosy! xxx
