What a wonderful exhibit. Thanks for posting.


Thank you for the lovely pictures and description of the place, I wish I could have been there!

Barb L.

It is so amazzing and overwhelming even if it was community of persons who put it together. I love it.


Wowsers again!


hi ya luce - just looked in pleased to see you made it to the exhibition - thought you'd like it - see you all for more tea/cake next time you are down Taz x


So glad you saw this. The hanging basket was knitted by some friends in the Quangle Wangle Choir. Genius super-knitter Suzy devised some of the patterns. Jenny produced the blue tit and Joy the caterpillar. The mossy basket was, of course, made using moss and basket weave stitch by Juliet. Among other floral inspired knitters were Margaret,Stella,Cathie,+Lizzie x

I have never seen anything quite like it - aren't people clever and imaginative

Amazing!! I made the blue tit on your first foto for my mum who loves birds. It took me two afternoons. Can you imagine the time this exhibition took to make? I love it. Thank you so much for this.

THANK YOU so much for sharing this!It is marvellous!Wish there was something like that in the States.Its fun to see some of the same projects in knit that I ve been doing lately in crochet.Frogs,bees,turtles..Thanks again for sharing.


Blooming marvellous is right! What A Faunatastic display! It's simply Floralicious! - I am soooo inspired!!


Amazing......my husband and I loved the beehive.. (I just had to show him the photos). I would love to have been there, I would have been jumping up and down clapping my hands too. Whilst I dont do "fiddly" things myself I do appreciate the work that goes into such small projects but as a whole they look fabulous.What a lovely memory to share with your little lady!
Thanks for sharing that with us.


oh wow! Thanks for sharing! That is fantastic!


My mind is boggling at the sheer extent of it all! :)

Hello! I recently found your blog and really love it - like you I love crochet and knitting and quilting and patchwork and . . . .the list goes on . . .. all sorts of craft actually. My Dads late wife's elderly mother taught me to crochet when I about 12 or 13 (I'm 51 now). I am so glad that she did and love the fact that I can. You seem to be much more productive than me though and having your little people too - I admire what you do and have loved what I have seen of your work so far. Thank you so much for sharing it all with us and for your blog, I am really enjoying reading it and get excited ready for your next posting. We were in LR for our holiday back at the end of July too and visited many of the same places as you though sadly Bridport Arts centre was closed the day we chose to go to the town(!) but I would have LOVED to have seen this-my husband would have had a hard job getting me to leave though-but it is lovely to see your great pics-now I feel I haven't missed out, thank you once again. Look forward to seeing you again very soon.


Amazing! was in Bridport at t'weekend hope I didn't miss it (with my best friend from school who is a textile designer and teacher-she'd have loved it too!) Thanks to your inspiring blog we had a lovely weekend exploring the area with our families.


Incredible. That is just incredible. Loved the pot of flowers on the windowsill. What a bunch of inspiration that provides! What kind of knitty things are going to tumble from the Attic do you suppose?

Hi Lucy, love your blog. Thanks for sharing precious moments. You MUST MUST MUST google 'crochet bikes' and click on 'images' Is there no end to the things we can crochet???All the best to you and your family, from Sue xx


Please forgive me for leaving 2 comments but I just wanted to let you know that my blog is still in the baby stage at the moment but I have introduced a new feature and made your blog the first featured blog on my site :) I hope that is ok? Thank you for having such a wonderful blog. Berol.


Wow! Words cannot describe how awesome that knitted garden is! Thank you for sharing it with us! :) Berol

I noticed from the blog that it would be in Poole - so will be able to go when I spend a few days near Corfe Castle in a week or so - I think there's a ferry to Poole - can't wait!!!


It is a marvellous exhibition. I saw it at Bournemouth Library a while back and I think it is due to go to Poole Lighthouse (the arts centre) soon so hopefully another chance to see. When at the Library I stood next to a lady who knitted a slug which apparently was on The One Show when they did a feature on the garden. The library also had knitted plant pots or vases of flowers on the desks and we loved the hanging baskets.


Wow - that's so cool!!!! Thanks for sharing!
