About Me

Have ypu made up a pattern for these so others can make them also


These are so beautiful! Would they be suitable for a beginner crocheted? I am looking for a project to make for some friends and am hopeful that I could manage these! Is there a pattern or tutorial available? Thanks so much. Love you're beautiful blog - it's so inspiring.


Thank you so much for being an inspiration. I learned a lot from your blog and I will always be a fan of yours :)


Hi, you have a lovely blog.
I was just wondering about your house chores, how do you keep such big and beautiful house clean and in order?
I am working on a scrapghan, I took your crocheted colourful afghan as inspiration :)
I really like how you appreciate the little things in a daily housewife life. The best legacy for your kids is the memory of a happy mother.
God bless you!

I discoverd your site a few months ago - your "things" are gifts for smiling as often I look at them. I think I will make some for myself and maybe for closely connected friends. Thank you so much.

Hello, Lucy ..... Congratulations you make everything beautiful .... I'm from Chile ....
I tell you that I'm learning crochet and you motivate me, but I have a question, how many threads have you use cotton? Chile does not sell the brand you are using, and not as an alternative to purchase, as I mentioned I'm starting in this, and the ratios of thickness and size of crochet not even manage .....
My jobs stay small or too big ... I can not even find the right cotton.

Help me?

Blog Congratulations so cute.

It was really a surprise to see a ladie of my age that is so creative with crochet. I also do have 3 children. The youngest a 3 year old girl, and I hope I will also learn her the love of needlwork as I from my mom. Regards Mariana Nunes

So did you ever write a tutorial for these? I'd love to make them as gifts for my co-workers but I don't see any instructions...

I love these. Will the instructions be English stitch. I hope I can get a U.S. stitch conversion on line. I think I can. Thanks.



Mi piacciono molto tutti i tuoi lavori, deliziose queste decorazioni natalizie e mi piace anche il modo con cui hai chiesto un piccolo contributo senza obbligo! Grazie!

My mom used to do that kind of stuff to add some personality when we're decorating for Christmas in which we assist her in making one. The spirit of Christmas always shines bright on our household, especially from our front doors to our spiral staircase there are garlands, candles, and big balls everywhere.


I don't remember how I get here but I'm really pleased!, lovely works
greetings from canary islands, spain!
