The coucous you are looking for is called Isralie Coucous. I can usually find it in the local grocery store here in the USA. It is wonderful cooked with chicken stock, fresh basil, cherry tomatoes, olives and feta cheese. Can be eaten hot or cold. Yum!

Ah that finished zipper is talent! Just came across your blog, and it's a lovely read. It's just about winter here, your photo's make me miss spring!

i really like those squares, you are trying out thanks for the link i have only been crocheting for a couple of months, and am really enjoying it. I’m going to make a blanket with an assortment of these squares. You made a really neat job of the zip in the bag, I’m going to have a go at that too I love your blog and look forward to seeing your next project thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks for the link to Yarn Crazy, that Double-Lace motif is gorgeous. I'm trying it in a buttery Devonshire Cream colour - delicious!

I love the bag and wreathes....who knew! I'll be making all of it if I possibly can. they're all beautiful! Happy Mother's Day!


Why not use more than one type of square for your new blankety thingy? I have a whole sample blanket, still growing. Every pattern i love is represented in a square. It is a bit much, but a few different ones would make a nice next project!
I just love your idea for a wreath! so colorful and happy. You're blog always makes me so happy! Thank you.


Hi Lucy
I am a crocheter in the UK. Please may I discuss some crochet ideas I have with you? your email address would be appreciated?

I hope it would be an idea we could both benefit from :)
thank you for reading

I know I'm late for the A24 party once again. I've been a crazied here. I have lost my hook mojo with all that is going on. I know where I need to visit to get inspired. I can't wait to see what these white beauties will have us all doing next. I find that you still can make my day seem brighter. Spring is in the air here and I must get outside now. Have a great Mother's Day weekend with the little ones. You do celebrate this over there, don't you?

Toodles, Kate

Hi lovely lady...

I've already commented but then I was reading a fellow Aussie lady's blog and I couldn't stop thinking of you and your passion for hooky - i thought you might like to check it out.. esp this post!



Love all the lovely colour and the beautiful bed blanket which looks so sunny with the light streaming in. As a non-knitter I am always in awe of your beautiful work and creativity.

Thank you for the chat, it always cheers me to catch up with your blog. Have a happy weekend. x


I love the butterfly garden block. I have one in a crazy afghan I made a few years ago, it's a butter yellow.

Hi Lucy, I'm sorry to barge in on your serious crochet, but today I came across a cushion that looked like something you might fancy...
(scroll for UK translation)
Just because there's no such thing as too much hooky spotting ;-).
By the way, I really love that Double-Framed Lace block you're working on. And your zippy bag. And your croissant, mmmmm!


Wow - your zip looks perfect! I'm way too intimidated by zips just yet and my sewing machine and I aren't on speaking terms right now. Maybe someday!

What a gorgeous blanket x


Ah, so the Attic is where our sun went... ;-)
That wreath is gonna look lovely ! Very curious about the result :-)
I share your High Hopes for May.. it's been too grey and cloudy for my likes lately. Though your blog always adds colour ! And to not let myself be too affected either, I just treated me on some Very Colourful nailpolish ;-)


The light on the blanket is marvelous.

I so love everything you make, my house is so lucyfied now. I used too have so matching and unified, but now all colorful and lucy style and so very happy. Thanks you are the best-

Connie Griffin

Love your project bag!!!
And love the gray square - It reminds me of a lovely trivet my mom used to have on her stove.


Hi Lucy lovely work again. I love the idea of the bag, great for taking out and about when on the move and want to take something to do. can't wait to see the finished wreath. have fun take care vina x

Pom Pom

Look at you go! You might want to friend Mrs. Galloway on Ravelry because she made what she calls her Lark Rise blanket and your squares remind me of it! VERY cool!
And YES, you put that zip in expertly! It looks so fine!
I wish you many more days of crocheting in the pockets of time that devoted motherhood affords!


Oh, your "ProjectBag" is so beautiful! It's lovely looking fabric and useful for any chrochet projects :O)
