oh gosh, thanks for sharing Loretta's blog, she does amazing art! and, as always, totally inspired by your crochet!


That art print is amazing! So are your bunting triangles!

linda burke

I always enjoy your posts so much

Hi Lucy, Yep, Alice's blog is one of my favourites, she does great things with wool. I also knew Loretta's work via flicker. I do agree that she's such a talented artist and definitely matches your palette really well. Look forward to seeing your secret creation! x Pati


Oh you inspire me so and I just love how you write. Off to bed soon and do some rows of cheerful colour. Thanks to you I am over coming my monochromatic existance.

To answer your question, YES, I do the same thing! I always fall in love with something, get the "wanties," and then sit on it for a few days to see if it's really something I can't live without. It does seem like many people just buy on impulse these days, but I carefully consider each purchase, more because of Lack of Space than anything else!
I love the print - I'll have to check out her blog and etsy shop - thanks!


Lucy your blog and fantastic outlook onlife keep me inspired. Lorette Grayson is well known in the scrapbooking circles down under so I know of her work, she has inspired many a scrapbooker/artist as you have encourage a huge number of crocheters? Well done Lucy, you make me envious that I am here in Aussieland and not in your wonderful part of the land. I originated from the north east, scarborough, whitby area and you make me so homesick.


I also love the stuff on your mantle piece, mine looks so boring.


I love Reta's little trees so much that I bought a full set of them for my 40th birthday last year, they really are little gems.

It's funny that i actually came across Reta's page via your hex blanket projects on Ravelry! I loved the colours she had choosen for her hex cushion which lead me to her rav page and then onto her blog and the little trees. Then I sat and waited oh so patiently until they appeared in her Etsy shop and then tormented for several days over which ones to buy. In the end I just couldn't decide...so I bought them all!


Just taking a little time out today as I'm passing by the Attic (which I do most days but don't always comment) to say a big Thank You to you Lucy. Your little patch of bright Colourful lovliness always brings a smile to my face (even when I'm feeling gloomy like today).

Thank you for sharing. I'm looking forward to seeing the secret project..... so no forgetting. Please :)

Oh, I've just had a creative thought (carefull now!)...after reading Rett's blog and watching her do her wonderful paintings, wouldn't it be interesting to design something like her paintings but in quilting!? You could use up lots of brightly coloured scraps and then applique a tree onto the design, and add lots of texture through buttons and stuff.... just checked out heretsy blog and am so tempted to get the "bluey" midnight colour print... just stunning. Thankyou for directing me to another amazing crafter/artist/blog xx

nicola pengelly

wow, that print is amazing! i love it! and the bunting really makes me happy! must learn to crochet! lots of love xxxx


O dear! Can you believe I've never looked on Etsy before?! Now yourve gone and got me hooked!!! Several purchases later im back here to say thanks for sharing I can't wait for my own packages to arrive with beautiful colorful objects of desire inside!


I love Loretta's work. Beautiful. And your bunting is so sweet!

I do so hope you'll share your secret project soon! :)


Thank you Lucy, seeing your pictures I feel the Spring!


The triangle bunting is on my way to long to do list for a long time. Love your colorfull version of it!

The painting suits your world-bright and cheery! I love the bunting, it is going to look lovely. I love reading your blog and try my hand at your lovely crochet projects. Thank you for the inspiration.

Pia Eriksen

What a fantastic idea - thanks

krista - Poppyprint

Adore Rett's sweet print! Yes, it is totally you, great purchase! Your bunting will be beautiful and soon enough, filling that 'empty space' with loads of picot trimmed lovely.


:) I've been a fan of Rett Grayson for a while. Have you seen her rainbow paper cranes? Gorgeous!! I love her bunting too!

Your new print looks right at home!


a japanese flower how to or hint would be great! thanks

Anita Meade

Hi Lucy. I bought the exact same print from Loretta's beautiful Etsy store about (?) 8 months ago. I fell in L.O.V.E with it too and just had to have it (a rare internet purchase for me too). I'm sure you're "Backyard with Stars" artwork will bring you just as much joy as mine has. Love Anita. xx

Susan P.

I am thoroughly enjoying your beautiful, colorful blog. We are still blanketed with snow in Minnesota and your colorful projects lift my spirits. Thank you for sharing your life and your attic photos. They are just lovely - I need to re-watch All Creatures Great and Small now! Rolling green hills...


Oh, I am just totally in love with that artwork. So in love with it, in fact, that I don't dare go look at the shop for fear of deciding that I absolutely NEED every last piece in it. LOL. I will most certainly be tucking it away in the back of my mind, though, for an opportunity when I have a little extra spending money. ;)
