When i was in grade school i had a pen pal named Lucy who lived in england. Sadly we moved and i lost her address never writing back! When i read your blog I secretly imagine that she is you and I am thrilled that she shares same intrests as me!! Anyway, this is my way of telling you that clear across the sea here in sunny california you brighten my day!!


Hi Lucy this is the first time i have ever written a comment before. I love your work, I teach patchwork and crochet, but crochet is closer to my heart.
I love the way you use colour.
Keep up the good work

Georgeus color and fabric mix.Congratulations


Thanks for the inspiration to just go ahead and create ... whatever the medium and whatever the project! It is so good for the soul. ;-)


Simply stunning...not surprised with the colors at all, we are drawn to what we like both in yarn and fabric


That is so kewl! Beautiful work!

I really love these stripey covers, Lucy!


i love them ❤
the pile of fabric and crocheted cushions together in the last image is awesome! so sweet and homely.


Nothing compares to playing with fabrics ! Have fun !


Very beautiful! Bye Cornelia


gorgeous cushions, i love them, and i think i own pretty much all those fabrics too, i buy mine at www.hawthornethreads.com, awesome prices and the bet collection!

Wow! I love them - I have just been given a sewing machine and had a few lessons to get me on the way and now I feel I can tackle anything.....plus the same lady is teaching me to crochet!..........just need some more sun so I can sit outside and get busy 'doing'


These are beautiful, zips still terrify me, yours look perfect, like you have done a million. A tutorial perchance?, you explain everything so clearly x x x


Sooooooooooo envious of your fabric collection! You have some beautiful pieces. I am just in the process of stashing with aim to make bunting for home and also cushions for my caravan. You have completely inspired me to build up my stash and get going with my projects. I feel a trip to the fabric shops coming on!
Well done on your fabulous project. Can't wait to see more.


Oooooooh. Sticky tape for basting? What a great idea!


Really gorgeous Lucy. I've been thinking about making patchwork cushion covers !! I have loads of fabric but it's not as pretty as yours.Patchwork was my first love and I will always have a soft spot for it. You did a great job with the zip too, doesn't sticky tape make your machine needle gluey ? Great sewing weather this week :0)

Lucy is just beautiful in your pillows


These are really lovely and cheerful, especially going into winter here - might have to whip up something similar.


Gorgeous cushions! I have never tried to stitch as I actually don't like stitching...But looking at your pictures and the way the cushions look, I will think about learning sewing.
Have a nice day and happy zipping and sewing!

OMG...I love that you used the "sticky tape" tip I suggested. Your pillows turned out absolutely beautifully. But I love, love, love the picture of all your pilllows stacked up! Your crochet colours choices and your fabric co-ordinates so well. Inspirational.:) Aussie Girl


You have mastered the dreaded zipper - no surprise there. They look perfect with your crocheted linens and things. A nice balance to all of that texture. Really really very pretty.


LOVE IT! O, the ribbon is just the right touch. Yay on your perfect zipper! I would be just as thrilled as you if I had done so myself!

Bari Jo

Bravo! I love them! I may just bite the zipper bullet and actually attempt some myself! Love the ribbon embellishments, too! Your pillows are wonderful! I love how they compliment all your beautiful crochet!!!!!!!!


compliments for all your colourful cushions!!!

How pretty!! The second one is my favorite!!
