Love all your pictures,sorry your not feeling up to snuff,I guess we all have those days, nothing like a little sunshine and some pretty spring flowers won't help to cure,first time I've read your blog, linked your wave pattern,that's how I got to you. Well,happy spring and I hope everything works out for you.

Oooh! I love the idea of the rose wreath, can't wait to see it and read the rose pattern. Love EVERYTHING you do, you are so inspiring!


What a lovely market. You must get some of that pussy willow! It lasts for ever and is easy to bend round if you want to make a garland or heart.

Love the rose!! Will be looking at the site often so I don't miss the pattern.


I just love your roses, they are so pretty. Those roccky roads look so good, but I was wondering what the American equivelant is to the digestive bisquits are? I really want to make some for my family this weekend. Have a great weekend from my home to yours.....

Hello Lucy! I have been admiring your blog for quite a while but this is my first comment. Your cheery spirit and beautiful crochet work keep me inspired!! I wanted to let you know that I really enjoy your blog and love your work. You have inspired me to create a baby ripple blanket and a granny stripe baby blanket. Thank you for sharing your passion with the world. Your friend near Philadelphia (USA).

Hi Lucy, you inspire and encourage me! Today I stopped by the garden centre and bought some Narcissi bulbs in pots ready to bloom. I love your ideas. Like you I am a Mum of 3 although older than yours but I know how much work it is.
God bless.

Glad that J is starting to feel better. Thanks for the lovely pictures it certainly looks lovely where you are!
Love love the rose! yet another beautiful creation from you! will be lovely to see what you do with them.
I have a wreath made from foam rubber ( wicks ) just covered in wide ribbon have not made up my mind what to do with it so will be nice to see what you end up doing!
As usual thanks for sharing!
Its also nice to know that your life is not perfect ( I have always thought that..lol ) No offence meant!!

Ta rah!

The snowdrops look breathtaking, i hope the walk helped to ease your stress levels.
Great idea for the little birthday cakes.
Homemade childrens cards are so special, i bet daddy was thrilled with their efforts.
Lovely rose, you are so clever!


Fabulous flowers and what a lovely walk and time to yourself you have had. Glad to hear that J is doing better. Bring on the sunshine. :)


Loving your flowers Lucy - I've been feeling a bit frazzled the last few days and I think some flowers round the house will definitely help!
I know your home town well and must send my parents up the hill to see the snowdrop patch.


Ah Lucy hang in there, keep breathing and looking at the flowers and sky and very soon Spring will be upon us, when everything will feel a bit better! Loving your little rose!


Ooooooh, I can't wait to learn how to make that rose! I was in the thrift store a few days ago and found forty skeins of fine cotton yarn in wonderful bright colors for a dollar apiece!


Lovely flags Lucy. My daughter had her 21st last month and we had a tea party. She made some flags for the refreshments. Take a look http://julies-little-world.blogspot.com/ under 21st birthday.


I love your flowers. I wish I had a greeen thumb. Awesome rose!!!! Can't wait till the tutorial.


Love the rose, I am working on your Blooming Flower Pillow, check it out on my blog,"Crochetoholic's Place" http://crochetoholic.blogspot.com
I love your flowers, my Daffodil's just started to bloom. :) Glad "J" is mending. :)


Where do you get your crochet hooks? I would love to try ones with thandles but there are so many places I dont know where to look?????


My baby J was 5 on Sunday. I made a James train cake for him. I hope you are all on the mend soon. I have started on another blanket for a competition at our annual ekka in Brisbane for August. I will send you a pic when I finish. Keep looking after yourself. :-)


I hope things improve for you over the coming week. The snowdrop patch is amazing. Currently we have tulips and gerbras in jugs to make us happy.


Hi Lucy, glad things are getting better - we none of us can cope at this time of year - it's normal,it was my husband's birthday on Saturday too!! his birthday 'cake' was an apple crumble - 'cos that's what everyone wanted!!so by definition it was the perfect 'cake'. Your blog cheers me up so much - I've ordered some of the stickers you received from Etsy and just the thought of them arriving has given me a lift - you make a lot of people happy you know!!


Oh bless you, you sound much brighter. We are awash with snowdrops at Rotten Towers too. I just love them. Great pics


You have such a lovely blog! Your village is beautiful. Come by and visit me at Home in Douglas!


i love looking at your landscape pics just as much as i love looking at your crochet! And i want to say how much i appreciate your tutorials--i made the happy flower decoration last week and i love it! you can see my version at www.iplaywithsticksandstring.blogspot.com
i hope you'll check it out--you're a great inspiration!
