Hello, your works are truly inspiring! You are so blessed to be the source of other people's inspiration. You are right, we really do best if we love what we are doing. If we love what we are doing, we learn to be more creative, more motivated, and more inspired especially when people appreciate what we are doing.
Keep going!

I just wanted to say that you are most definitely an inspiration & touch the lives of so many. Your photography of all of your wonderfully, colorful projects is indeed scrummy! I hadn't crocheted an afghan in 25 years & after following your blog, I started an afghan last fall, which I am finally completing. I'm using your edging ideas to leap-frog off into some imaginings of my own on how to finish it. I also enjoy hearing about Connie Van & your vacations there in the UK. Thank you sooo much for allowing us a peek into your colorful world.

ps I would also love to know where to find Rico Creative Cotton here in Missouri in the USA.


Mrs Lucy I think I am going to attempt to make this Granny Wheel! =) I love love love it! (almost as much as I love your granny stripe pattern!)
You take such great pics that I hope to be able to determine how to put it all together. ;)

I really love your blog and have been inspired to crochet a granny stripe blanket and a ripple balnket.

Can you tell me how thick the rico yarn is??? I love the colours and wuld like to make some dishclothes out of the yarn if it is thick enough.

Many thanks

I have always wanted to make a scrap granny afghan with the black yarn, like both my grandmothers had on their couches. I will have to watch for your pattern. I am so excited, and definitely inspired!


hello I have just completed 2 stunning cushion fronts using your summer granny square pattern for my daughter, one in bright cotton and one in bright wool, they look fantastic..i have also completed half a blanket using the same square for her but it's work in progress. xx I love your work.

Please, please, please write a tutorial for these lovely squares!

I have recently picked up crochet out of a homesickness for my mother. I've been looking for the perfect project and I think this might be it! I can't wait to get started.

Wonderful blog!


Hello, I love you and your craft. Please go visit http://www.lemondedesucrette.com She might be your next best friend. Let me know what you think.




Hi Lucy! I've been a long time lurker, but this post just made me laugh and I just want to say "thank you!" to you. You've been the source of many inspirations too! :)

Wonderful words to think about! I was sent here from another blogger, I agree with all that you say. My blog was just my way of organizing what I do and keeping up to date with family and having pics of things I made to reference back to, but it has become so much more than that, a circle of friends who inspire me and who, hopefully I occasionally inspire. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

I just found your site last night and couldn't wait to come back today! PLEASE do post the instructions for this! I don't crochet, yet, but am dying to learn. I have dreamed of making myself a granny square vest for some time and as this post says, you are very inspiring!

Hi! I love your blog!! I just stumbled across it this past week looking up a pattern for a friend, and I am so glad I did. Thank you for sharing all of your WONDERFUL creations!
I already tested the Granny Line pattern of yours and can't wait to try the Granny Wheel!!! Granny squares are my favorite, so I am sure I will love the wheel. Keep up the great work!!


I love the dramatic colours and the use of the dark blue background. Please post tutorial asap - my crochet hook is at the ready! I'm just finishing a 'One Big Square' blanket which started off using left-over wools from my first Ripple blanket. The One Big Square has taken on a life of its own!!! At last my colour combos (based on your interlocking colours theme) have resolved themselves to a point where I'm satisfied that everything is in proportion, so I'm just finishing off my Very Last Row - finally! What started off as a little throw for a garden chair now almost fits a King size bed. Any ideas on how to cope with washing and drying such a monster (its in DK - 100% acrylic and weighs a ton, even when dry) would be most welcome.


Yes Lucy, you are quite an inspiration!!! And that blanket reminds me of stained glass-GORGEOUS!!!

I believed you too!!! Been trying with out success to learn to crochet, this year i promise myself i will succeed!!!! I want bright and gorgeous ripple blankets on my bed, along with bunting and pot holders,etc. This year is MY year to " DO IT"
Love looking at and reading your blog.... I have just started to write mine, Onwards and Upwards...


Hi, Lucy!

My husband and I were wondering if your fireplace burns coal. We have been looking for a coal burner for our house, but no one in our local area sells them (we live in the USA).

I love your blog. As a matter of fact, your blog is the reason behind my reteaching myself to crochet! So--you are an inspiration :)


Hi Lucy,
I'm new in the crochet world, i'm trying to make the granny blanket, but don't look prety, i think i'm not doing the treble's correctly...could you explain how to make the 3tr's and the 6tr's??? thank you.

Inspiration is such a funny thing, sometimes it can be found everywhere you look, other times it appears to be nowhere at all, usually when you are most in need of it, of course!
Those grannys really are lovely.
