Hello Lucy, It´s amazing. I love crochet and the colours...wonderful!!!




I came across your blog a couple of days ago and was astonished to see a pic of a baby in a lap and a mummy hooking away because as I saw that pic all the way over the seas in Australia I looked down and saw the same scene. Baby boy born early/mid-Jan and I've been feeding baby and hooking on the couch for five months now too! (I think I might have to start a granny stripe blanket just to keep the symmetry across the seas going). Love it, you've made my week!

Hey Lucy - just to say a 'Thank you' for a lovely site - events over the holiday time have been devastating and just trying to piece things all back together, so stumbling across this little ray of sunshine is really important for healing. I'm looking for a crochet flower jacket/waistcoat pattern to work on (any ideas ?) but in the meantime I'm going to start on chosing colours and practising some flowers.....so once again - Thanks Lucy !

I've only recently found your blog. The bright green triangle surprise you did earlier. The color was so vibrant and it was crochet! I've been hooked on your blog since. And you have inspired me to crochet. I have always had a hook and yarn close by, playing with it, but not making anything. I really wanted to make an afghan when my grand babies were born. I would buy yarn and think hard about it. Now we are expecting our 4th grand daughter in a few weeks, and with my MIL help, I have an afghan started! I'm working hard on it, to finish it before her shower in a couple of weeks. Might not make it by then, but definitely by the time she is born. I'm not so fast yet, but getting it done! I am thrilled! And it looks good! So I wanted to thank you for your almost daily temptation to pick up a hook and get going! I am looking forward to trying to figure out more of the things you have shown me. Love the flowers. And what did my MIL give me for christmas? A whole box of crochet snowflakes and angels for my christmas tree next year! They will be beautiful.

Just 'thankyou' for your encouragement.

My resolution for this year is to learn how to Crochet. I fell upon your blog whilst searching for crochet projects on Flickr. Your blog has really inspired me :-)


Wow some fantastic work. Just starting out on crocheting. You dont have a simple pattern for a blanket do you - loving the ripple blanket. Is that easy to do?


I may have missed someone's comment asking if you have posted the directions for the crochet "bunting"...do you share? I can't crochet, but I know someone that can, I would love the bunting!! Darling blog~


You are such a crochet inspiration. I made a few little birds from your pattern for my ornament exchange with friends. Currently I'm using your walk though on hexagons to make a baby blanket. Thank you Thank you and Happy New Year!


dear Lucy
Happy new year to you and all your family
You inspired me to learn this wonderful craft and I like many others have to pop onto your site and get a lucy top-up of happiness (even at work!)
I do so want to make some buntings to place on my dresser but I am unable to see a tutorial from you. I would not know where to start.
Hope you can guide me to the correct page for this.

The cushion with the square pattern -- is this wool embroidery?

Patti Fisher

Lucy, Love you and your work! The colors are so bright and beautiful they make me happy just looking at them! Keep it coming in the new year. You can't look at your work and not smile!


Hey Lucy I just wanted to say your blog is just so inspirational. Its all beautiful. Thank you for all your tutorials and for all your colors!!!!

However I just cant seem to find your bunting tutorial, Im sure its just me being technologically impared. Hope you have a lovely New Years. I wish you all the best for 2010!
