I've followed your tutorial and my house is now awash with wonderful holly leaves. Even sacrificed my beaded necklace (much to the dress up boxes disgust) because I simply had to finish them yesterday. Fantastic, thank you. x

Hi Lucy!!!! It's me again! It's Sunday afternoon and I JUST MADE MY FIRST HOLLY LEAF!!! I am so excited! The pattern and tutorial were perfect! I am new to crochet, teaching myself this year and I AM SO EXCITED to have been able to make this! You made it very easy! I am using them to decorate some hats for my nieces for Christmas! Woo hoo! Just had to pop in and tell you! Thank you for sharing all that you do on your blog! I have had much fun reading and dreaming about future projects. Your tutorials are like having you sit right next to me! Thanks again! Hugs from Albuquerque! :O)


Haha, how sweet that Little B has his own crochet inspirations! : )

I think I'll try and get ahead of the game and make some of this bunting in red, white and blue, ready for the Olympics/golden Jubilee next year. I'm thinking of the word 'celebrate' as its 9 letters will suit a 3 colour bunting and I could use it for next Christmas too. There's no chance of it being done before then. Lucy, you've infected me with the crochet bug good and proper.


Your blog never ceases to delight me! It much be such fun to grow up in such a colourful home! No wonder your little guy wanted to check out what he could with a crochet hook!! :)


I just love it. I have already been inspired by your various garland and bunting projects to start my own. I'll get some pics done when I'm further along. Love your latest bunting! Thank you.



that bunting is so bright and colourful!


Very cute! Are you feeling the effects of the big storm to the north of you? Thinking of you.

Leslie @ simply frugal homemaking

Sooo cute! I love all of your projects :)

Sian Lawton

ooooh do you have a pattern for the bunting?


I love this Bunting :) It looks different than the triangle bunting. Is there a pattern for it some where?
