You are as cute as a button, love your lack of fear of color (I'm a bit colorphobic), just made my first granny square baby quilt and see how folks get hook on making these, love your blog, adore your sweet and cozy home. There, I think I remembered to say it all! So glad I found your blog!

I have been following your blog for quite some time now --- ever since I ran across it in search of a crochet flower pattern! Your fun ideas & happy writing can snap me out of the most fowl mood! Thank you so much for sharing all the GOOD THINGS. I love:love:love being reminded to have fun, relax, & enjoy the little things in life.


It is gorgious! Be proud!

hello! i'm not sure if you read through comments on older posts, but here goes:
i love this afghan!!! i happened upon your blog through the a reference in another blog and felt immediately at home. i am mostly a quilter, but crochet scarves in the winter (new york cold) for everyone far and wide (i am sort of a one-stitch-wonder at scarves...). well, i read through your posts and decided i HAD to try this blanket. the only problem i had was tracking down the proper sized hook; my girlies (aged 4 and 9) steal my hooks to practice their patronus charms, so locating hooks is a big scavenger hunt in this house! the 'h' hook looked slightly sad and stretchy; finally the 'g' hook is making progress. thank you for the wonderful inspiration!


Whar a lovely blanket! And: there is a dutch translation, thanks to Karinaandehaak. And thank you Lucy. We alle love Lucy!

I found your blog a few days ago and I am in awe of your creativity. I usually just knit but now I am crocheting a hex blanket. I would love to crochet the granny square with the flower center, do you have a tutorial? I am sorry to be such a bother but I now have the bug. Thanks

You're right; your Granny Stripe Blanket is amazing, delicious indeed!
