Only wish to thank you for another great post. Can you tell me where can I find any more info on this topic? I think that\'s the proper approach to this problem.

Lucy, so adorable!! I love buntings and have them all over the house. Your shelving re-do was a smash as well. Nice job!! Thanks for always brightening up my day.


I like those nailed sticks on the wall, which form something like shelves.It can become really nice detail of décor if added some colour may be.
Glad to read about your time with children!:) Take care!

Hi Lucy, I have been reading your Blog for a year now! You inspired me to learn Crochet. I Love your tutorials. Anywho I was looking on Pinterest and came across this and instantly thought of you!

Enjoy, and keep up the great blogging!

Canadian reader Megan. :)


Lovely bunting!
I have nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. You are listed on my blog today with a link to your blog. Congratulations!


How pretty would these be as necklaces? I have some strung around the front of the dollhouse. Where do you get this marvellous tape?

Might like to hang your flower from... Have a Look maybe....

Did you see "Our Home Wall hanging" by jessica dawn dipaolo on Ravelry. Do have a peek.


So nice, optimistic, colourful thing - it makes ME happy, so I think I can imagine how happy you are. Visit to Attic is like sesion with best
psyhologist, I always go full of joy back to ordinary everyday staff.


Lovely! Perhaps you like the print because it looks like a mug of coffee next to some yarn and dimly-recognisable creative projects?


Very cute bunting, it would look great in my little 'Toadstool' village. Your comment about peach walls made me laugh, my partner chose yellow about five years ago....it drives me mad...I am this close to taking a large pot of white paint...he came home from work last night and said 'Do you know what? I really like these colours!' I guess I gotta learn to love the yellow! Bleurgh!


I've been a huge fan of yours for some time, and I've only just managed to figure out how to post a comment!! lol I check your site meticulously each day in anticipation of a new post/project.
I am from England but now live in Canada with my husband and son, so I also wanted you to know that I love looking at your photos of the English countryside, because they give me a huge dose of happiness when I am feeling nostalgic and so far from home...

Hi Lucy, don't know if you've spotted it but Penny of Planetpenny blog is starting a "cotton club" and has some beautiful bright coloured yarn available.
Perfect for 'Lucy' projects!

Hi there Lucy! Love everything about your blog!! I need help. I am working on the blooming flower pillow and it is going very well:) Thank you for posting the pattern-it's lovely! I am having the hardest time finding a pillow to go inside the case. Do you have any suggestions? It would be much appreciated-thank you!!!

Such teeny-tiny cuteness. I bet you had a blast whipping it up. My nap time was spent playing with some scraps of fabric that a lovely lady in NZ sent me. :) I didn't get anything specifically planned - but I sure did have fun! :)

Susan Mills

That is wonderful! I don't know your whole house, of course, but I can't imagine there is any place there that would have been better than this. You have definitely cheered me up today!

Issy Gardiner

Dont you just LOVE toddler sessions!?!
Every week I try to avoid the next one but every week we end up going;)))
The after time nap always twists my arm though!
Best wishes



Terrific teeny bunting, looks right at home under your pic.


Just had a thought. My watch strap has worn out and I was thinking how great it would be to crochet a bright one. Checked revelry with little success. Have you any ideas? I think it would look fan but don't know where to start x


Hi Lucy. I came across this link about making your own washi tape and thought it might be of interest to you http://molliemakes.themakingspot.com/blog/tutorial-tuesday-homemade-washi-tape

Hello Lucy

I just wanted to mention that I recently made the blooming flower cushion. I ADORE it. I have three teenage children and we all were drawn to the texture of it. It is so squishy and fun to hold. I love it. Thank you for posting this fabulous pattern. I really appreciate it. The online crocheters(?) are verey generous with their time and patterens. Happy Hooking, Carla


hi lucy,
cute bunting as always....i have started on a cushion cover based on your flat circle pattern. managed to go thru ur ripple pattern as well. OMG your tutorial is so basic and descriptive that i cant look at any other web page for instructions.and its so re-assuring to know that you have had the same issues that beginners have (i know its another decade for you now) but really motivates me to continue.when I look at your finished project or some WIP i think how you can be so precise with your stitches i mean they almost look machine made and so immaculate. Then realised its many hours of practice and patience and makes me go that extra step.too bad i came across your blog very late so i have many more projects to go before i catch up with your latest pursuits......


You are so clever!


Fun!!! Love the bunting!!!
