You are all getting on so beautifully. I wish I had some speed behind my woolen crafts, I'll be knitting squares till the cows come home, I can only manage 1 an evening if that I'm soooooo slow that snails go faster!


Wow you have been busy!


Lovely blog and lovely home and family : )


Hello Lucy, Greetings from Spain. As an absolute crochet beginner I started to surf the web and bumped into you AMAZING blog. I spent a couple of hours looking and admiring all the wonderful things you do. Congratulations! Through your blog not only you show a wonderful skill with the hooks but also you transmit lots of positive energy, creativity, joy and above all LOVE. Be sure I'll be your follower from now onwards. I hope your babies are fine!. Ana


That´s a wonderful picture to see, Lucy! Little B. seems so calm and cosy... I can´t imagine how you manage time to do all you do! I´m so happy for you! (and for us... rssrsr... cause I thought you´d be away from your hooking for a very long time... but now here you are!!!!)

Beautiful :-). You, your crocheting, your pictures, and of course your little B. Lovely, lovely!


I just discovered your blog and I love it! I laughed when I read about your multitasking because I am always crocheting while nursing the baby! Except I usually have a cup of coffee on the table.


You are Super Lucy!

Isn't it amazing the things we figure out to do so we can keep on crocheting?! You little one makes me want another one so bad! I think if I smell in deep enough I can smell that fresh baby scent! Oh it smells so good!!!

Hiya - just wanted to let you know I've nominated you for the sunshine blog award... http://lifeofcattoo.blogspot.com/2010/02/sunshine-award.html


I got that multi tasking down to a fine art - until my little one started flailing her arms around to get my attention :) Long my it last for you - I miss the snuggly nursing time!

Hello, thank you for this blog it is so delicious. it gave me some ideas and I started making "crochet" I'm french so my English isn't very fluent.

Well done, dear Lucy!
A Milk Tank and Crocheter in the same time? And a blogger, too.....I can't believe that!... ;)
I'm very,very glad that we can chat more often.
I wish you to have lovely days,only!


Thank you for finding blog time as well dear Lucy. Although more a knitter and sewer, I find your chats so sweet and relaxing. When I get home from work I like to check to see if you have making and chatting again. Not only multi tasking, but being creative and inspirational as well. Cheers from Australia


hahahaha... Milk Tanker and a Hooker!!! Awesome!


Little B. is so cute!
I used to multi task too when I was breastfeeding my son. Although I didn't crochet but read books. He was drinking for long stretches at a time so I had the time to read a whole chapter or more during one feed.
Love your Granny's too by the way!


Love the picture of Little B's head...it brings back wonderful memories of sweet baby head fragrance from about 14 years ago when my kids were little like that. Please show the blankie when it's finished :-)


OMG, this is beautiful ;) Sorry for asking, but do yoz breastfeed? ;)
