Wow - you must be exhausted after all that work! I've already seen a couple of happy flowers appear on Flickr so they are already multiplying!

Hi Lucy, love your work. I have all my Summer Granny squares done and ready to join. I have one question, I saw your edging and was quite thrilled as I wanted to give my blanket a nice finish. How do I work the striped border before the edging? I love the colors. I made my squares using Rowan DK hand knit cotton. Please let me know how to work the striped border. Thanks


Glue???? can someone explain??? THIS IS SOOOOOO cool!!!!


You might have seen her already but if not you really should check out Babukatorium. An AMAZING crochet artist. Google her and have a look at her Flickr stream and enjoy!


Your blog is one of my main crochet inspirations, thank you! Blooming flower cushion in some lovely murky variegated wools is my next project; via your super tutorial. And then the Japanese flower scarf.

Here's an interesting crochet flower in an afghan/ throw on eBay UK that I thought you might like: Item number: 230745140354

Your work is beautiful. I noticed the crocheted little Russian dolls on shelf. Do you have pattern for them?


Hey! I have been using your blog for inspiration for the past month. you are amazing. you rekindled my love for crocheting. I learned when i was young (probably 7 or 8) and by the time i was a teen i thought it was lame, so i got rid of all my yarn and needles. needless to say i moved to a new city last summer and now almost 25 years old i am a granny square addict. i started making them from a tutorial i found on youtube but your flower granny square blanket is what made me want to do it! thank you. for everything. i appreciate it so much! i'll post photos on my blog as i continue to work. thanks again! -Courtney

Your site has been an inspiration. I love that you are so willing to share your projects. And your photos are wonderful. Thank you so much!!!


Obviously we all love the flower, but can I say I love your mugs as well!! They are so pretty. Do you have special mugs for special times of the day? of a special activitiy? Thanks for doing the pictures and instructions. Have a great weekend!


Really pretty. Just got a look at your tute. Easy to follow. Thanks for all the photos.


Hi! I have found your blog accidentally while searching crochet patterns. The things you make are just amazing! Looking so bright and cheering up! Keep on doing more flowers so that we can please our eyes with them!
I'd be glad to share my crochet ideas later on, when I gain enough mastery in knitting :)


Your pictures and crafty inspirations are so therapeutic. It makes my winter days so much more cheerful when I can click on your site and see these beautiful pieces of happiness. Thanks


Now look what you've done, you clever, clever girl!
How can I possibly finish all my knitting projects when I have to learn how to make a Happy Flower?
As I sit here on the other side of the world with my iPad on my knee I am astounded by your generosity. Thank you from one chuffed Happy Grandma who has this week learned to crochet Granny Flowers from your marvelous tute.
Every photo is worth it - sensational.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.


**** Hi Lucy. Was browsing in the 'Inside Crochet Magazine' today and saw that you came first and were voted No 1 blogger for 2011. I hadn't noticed you mention it in previous posts so can I just say 'Well Done'
You totally deserve it. Your posts are soooooooo inspirational! x x ****

Wonderful creative crochet..definitely you should get all those into a book....please do it because 20 years from now you will be disappointed by the things you didn't do...(Mark Twain - rearranged by me!)- anyhow I am delighted for those who want to crochet it. Could I ask you a question? My sister in law wants to start crochet - I came to your site to look for a dc tutorial but I couldn't find one...do you have one somewhere tucked away in that list or would it be part of some of the projects? I did a chain for her with big wool and a big hook and she's off home to try but your tuts are so specific it would help her....when you get a moment (I know you don't have many except today) I'd love to know the answer...have given her your site anyway to encourage her. I have given her a you tube tut but yours would be far better. Thanks for reading this big long post!

thank you soooo much for taking the time to make, photograph, & write up the tutorial - you are a great source of inspiration & help to so many of us! I love reading your blog - no surprise you won the best blog award from Inside Crochet! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Helen

Happy wishes to you Lucy for all the nice things you do for others like sharing your wonderful crafty things. I have been following your blog for a couple years now. And thought it was time I pop in again and say hello. I love your wonderful flower. Changing the size of the yarn, this would make a beautiful happy flower bookmark for someone. I enjoy your blog so much, looking at all of your amazing photos takes me to happy places I could not visit if not for you sharing your talents. I hope all of the beautiful things you share come back to you ten fold Lucy. Blessings to you and your precious family.

it's gorgeous! Makes me want to head home and pick ip a hook. So glad to have found your blog!

You are absolutely AMAZING!! Thank you so much! Being a knitter...I need good tutorials when it comes to crochet....and yours is wonderful! I need to get some bright colored cotton together to make this!! Thank you again...I LOVE your blog.....

Karen L.

I was just going to say - how do you make that happy flower? :-) Thank you for developing the tutorial. I just love what you do! Coming to Englnad in May to visit friends - so excited about that as well. Peace.
