I am going to learn how to do this. Beautiful!


Dear lady, I am completely smitten with the patterns and use of color! A girl after my own heart! I love how they all pile up like a rainbow gone amok. :) I have to learn how to do a granny square if it's the last thing I do, then maybe I'll have my own pile of fuzzy rainbows! Cheers!


Absolutely beautiful, every single on of them. I wish I was your neighbor, for I would ask you to teach me to crochet.

I love just looking at them. Reminds me of my mom who made throws like yours.

Suzanne Farrell

Love the color combinations!! Have 3 grand daughters with me today and they all picked an "I Love This One" so I guess I have my new projects selected by them! LOVE your work and it's so inspiring!! Thank you!


Where can I buy these?? I want one!

Would love to have source for the baby zig zag squares. Love your creative crocheting - beautiful colors


Lucy, about a year ago this post inspired me to make my own vintage stripe blanket. The finished article came into being just yesterday. I hope you don't mind, but I linked to your home page by way of a thank you for inspiring me.


Dear Lucy, I'm Maria D, I'm brasilian living in Spain since 1992, I have 2 boys 13 and 10 years old, we live with our bobtail dog at the north of the Madrid provincia in the mountains. I start my first project, a babette blanket, its only the first one, want to do all, so, searching on internet I found awesome works, love your blankets, I will love to do all!!!
When I was 20 I lived in England for a year in Bideford, Devonshire, in an old Victorian house (little hotel) named Yeldon House, there I learned a bit of english, its not a good one, but as you see I can communicate. Nice to meet you at internet, I will be following your works. xxx Maria D

I Lucy
I love your blog and your work. I follow you for some time.
I'm from Portugal and i was reading a blog from a brand called DMC, and i saw a picture that remebered me from a work that you did some time ago.
And i was right.
This is the link for the blog: http://www.oblogdadmc.com/2012/02/promocao-obtenha-as-34-cores-de-natura.html
Continue with the good work and charing it with us.
Thank you.

Stunning display. I would love to know are they wool or acrylic? Where do you find these bright cheerful colors? Are you ever considering selling your work?
I crochet daily and I find your work as well as your enthusiasm inspirational.
Many thanks.


i love your blankets. just started yesterday with my own colorful granny blanket!


Your work is an inspirations to me :) thank you !!!



It's so inspiring to know that you taught yourself to crochet and that you've only be doing it for about 4 years. I've wanted to learn how to crochet for many years now and never had anyone to sit and teach me. Now we have YouTube and I've been practicing some while watching tutorials on there. Your blankets are all so beautiful, bright, and colorful. Just reading your blog brightens my spirits and makes me want to learn how to crochet all that much more. Thanks for sharing...

Rachel Forrest

Hello!!i like yr colorful crochet..so sweet

Joanna Pearl

Hi there
I really enjoy your blog and hope you won't mind a couple of questions as I embark on my first granny square blanket: do I need to sew the ends of all the colours in for each square, and how do you get the squares the same size?

Peony and Thistle

These blankets are STUNNING!


These look absolutely AMAZING!!! I am so inspired by your beautiful colourful work. Just noticed you have a few tutorials too - super! Am definitely going to try one out. Thanks!! xo


Decorating the home and the different rooms is always a fun and exciting activity. The first step, unless you already have furniture and beddings prior to moving in, is shopping for the things needed to complete the home.

beds mattresses

You have the most wonderful and adorable blankets. They are all colorful which kids will surely love. I wish I could have one to give as a gift.

Jill Denton

Your blankets are beautiful! I mean, I just absolutely love them. I'm so blown away that you made these in 3 years and that you made them right after learning how to crochet. This is very inspiring to me. xoxo


I'm jealous of your swift crocheting speed! Each and every one is so beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing!!!


I was admiring your first ever blanket. How did you do the flowers in the squares? Did you sew them on or incorporate them in the actual square? Loving all your blankets, have made a granny stripe myself but can't decide which to do next!
