From Buenos Aires,


Because of you I started to do crochet!!I got sooo inspired with the colors that you use that I started and can't stop making Christmas gifts for everyone.
Your way to post the projects steps is really easy and thank you for always including how-to-do the diferent sticthes! It really is a big help!
Being an expat and moving every 3 years with this type of craft it feels that at least this will not change!! A big Thank you! portuguese mom of 4 living (for now!) in the south of France


I absolutely laughed out loud when I read that you told the children to go away and leave you to do your own project. aahhh, I feel not so bad now about being a little teensy bit mean every once in a while. ha ha.

Hello Lucy, I discovered your blog a few days ago and have read it all. I love your place. I don't crochet but you made me want to learn. Thanks for your very nice blog which brightens my days. Take care.


LOVE it! It looks so good in your brightly colored living room.
And that lamp shade would look amazing decoupaged! I can't wait to see it.

They're beautiful! The buttons and punched out flowers are a nice touch that I wouldn't have thought of!

I never knew it was called decopatching but I decorated a few things using this technique years ago as a child. Brought back memories!


The Decopatch in my home is on hold until I have more time on my hands but I love it too! It agree that it makes life very happy! :)


Beautiful! Makes me smile with all theses colors, thanks for sharing!


This is WONDERFUL!!! I am sooo ready to do something similar...


It 's wonderful !!! kisses

Oh, my!! Can I please come live in your colorful, delightful house!! Such a perfect addition to your style!! LOVE it!


i havent had time to look at your blog for a long while - the reason being 3and a half months ago I had my gorgeous baby girl, she is my fourth baby( 3 boys and now Anna) and I have a 7 year age gap between her and her next brother-( not a surprise just procrastinating!) its fine Lucy dont worry the age gap is great - i have 5 years between boys 2+3 which is just perfect. Congratulations on your baby news too! The difference I have found is that my crochet time is now in the small hours when the house is quite ( luckily she sleeps well at night!) I am sat in bed, baby snoring in her cot next to me and my lovely husband snoring on the other side making the royal sisters trees ( the stars have vanished from their page!!) and loving every minute. Goodnightxxx


ps i adore your blog and your tutorials and patterns are the best.
