Was wondering if you had a tutorial
on what is called the crocodile stitch.
I like the way you break it down and show each step in pictures.So much easier to follow.


Sigh... I sigh a lot when I read your blog. I am smitten with your world. To wake up and see something beautiful everyday; this is a wonderful thing.

Many, many bright blessings to you, my friend.


I just love your countdown garland! Do you have a pattern for the stars? I looked around but couldn't find it here on your blog.


I have hyacinth envy. When i lived in Europe i used to buy hyacinths all the time in season. Now i live in the sub-tropics.....I don't even know if we can get them and if it is cold enough. I must live vicariously through the photo of yours!!


Beautiful pictures. Cold but beautiful weather.


I love your colourful crochet!!! :) sooo nice!


Hello from Spain. Muy bonitos los diseños que haces. Me gustaría saber como haces para preparar el café con leche con dibujos. Salud.


Did you make that little red bird cushion? I wondered, as it reminds me of your textile pictures. It's truly lovely.

Your blog has started my crocheting obsession. You have the best patterns of any one I have seen on the web!
I also love looking at all of your pictures as I am from Canada and they are very cool...
I am still learning but I have been making both sizes of flowers like crazy...

What would you suggest next for someone very new and teaching themselves... I love your patterns with all of the pictures !! You should make a book :)

Hello Lucy.

My name is Erin and I've only recently discovered your blog. I've never seen such an inspiring creation of colourful cosiness! I'm a definite fan. In fact, you've inspired me so much, I'm going to start my own blog. I've also very recently learned to crochet and my crafty gene is waking up after a few years of slumber. Thank you so much. Your blog is a true delight. (And when I get my blog up and running, I'll send you the link if you have time to take a peek.)

I've started my very own Granny Stripe afghan, have made several Granny Stars, circle garlands & am proud to say that I just finished my very first little Birdie a few minutes ago thanks to your awesome tutorials!! Keep the wonderful posts coming....they truely are the highlights to my days! :-)

Hi Lucy,
I was recently interviewed at Kiwi Mummy blogs (http://www.kiwimummyblogs.co.nz/our-mums/katy/) and listed your blog as one of my favoruites so you might just get new a visitor or two from down under :-)


£500? You have little mini Alan Sugar's at you house, but at least they give family rates!

It all looks simply lovely at yours.



Ooh we are also getting christmas things out today, the tree smells so good! I LOVE that cushion, how beautiful and timeless.


I so enjoyed my visit to your cosy world and sharing in some of your special winter warmth.
Have a lovely cosy weekend. Helen x
