Hi Lucy,

First I would like to say; I love your site/blog
You inspire me to be so creative!

I have a question. I have a blog, it's about all kinds of creative and fun stuff.
I would like to ask your permission to publish a translation of your tutorial of the granny stripe blanket.
I really would like te make a translation from english to dutch. Of course I would tell it's your design and tutorial.

If you would like to take a peek;

It's in dutch, but if you would like to know more, please let me know.

With kind regards,

Bojoura van Uden

Hello Lucy!
I used your self portrait photo in a post. I hope it's all right? The post is "April Ladies" - http://digitalpongaio.blogspot.com/2011/04/april-ladies.html
As said in the post, I greatly enjoy your blog! (and what a scrumptious little foot in its toddler shoe!) Thank you for all the lovely moments.


I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your blog. Your crochet ideas are so inspiring. I am now making my own granny squares. Your photos are so lovely! I did mention your blog on one of my recent post. Thanks so much for charing.


Luv the pj's! They're just my thing. Pity we don't have Tesco's in Australia. Like the sneak peak of the "spring hooky thing". Hope Little B is much better by now and love his new shoes - how sweet!! Meredithe


Mmmmmhhhh, mini eggs! My favourite and gone way too quickly anytime I buy them. Perhaps I should try putting them in a jar and they may last longer while I admire how good they look!
Hope everyone is on the mend now and you are enjoying Spring time :-)


I fully admit to copy-cat-itis. We came back from the Isle of Mull yesterday and whilst in Tesco refilling the dwindled stores I chanced by the underwear section and picked up the lovely jammies on sale!! You must bring luck Lucy.
Bath, new jammies and a few rows of granny stripe blanket before an early night. Heaven.....


I feel a shopping trip coming on, those jammies are just my sort of thing!

I hope Little B is soon much better and you are all enjoying the recent lovely sunshiney days


Your post today is a perfect April post - a little bit of this and a little bit of that, forever changing like April weather. I'm finally beginning to believe that Spring is here - no snow this past week and several sightings of crocus and snowdrops... yes, I think this is it :-)


Love your little hooky treat, wondering what it might be, just know it will be fab!
Jim-jams the BEST EVER invention in my book and funnily enough I feel my most creative when I'm wearing mine! Hope you're having a gloriously sunny weekend. ♥


Nature is indeed truely wonderful.


Have you and or your family ever run up that hill or mount that we see out of your attic window? What did your house look like from up there if u did ?


Hi Lucy, just stumbled across your blog through ravelry!!!!! I've decided to start crocheting again having not really done any since leaving York almost 2 yrs ago! Lovely to see you're so happy in Yorkshire and I cannot believe junior is toddling! We're all very well here in New Zealand and send our love to you all. I adore the egg shell posy idea :-) I'm of to browse your blog for some very easy projects for a deeply unaccomplished crochet student

love your blog and tutorials.any chance you could do a tutorial on a granny square for a left hander pretty please.Angie


Lucy. I just came upon a blog called Cosy Things, and she refers to you quite a bit - inspired by your borders for blankets etc. Your blog still my fav, just love it.


What a lovely blog, reading it always brings a smile to my face and makes me appreciate the small things in life that make me so happy! By the way, would it be rude to ask where little B's shoes are from - they are sooooo cute!
