Hi, I just joined pinterest and found your site. I love your fun colorful projects. Is there anyway for me to get a pattern for the airy crocheted pennant garland. I would love to make it for my granddaughters. I have never seen one so whimsical.
Thank you
Grandma Mary

A payday loan (also called a payday advance) is a small, short-term unsecured loan. They enable you to free up some cash straight away for anything from covering unexpected expenses or pay bills, get a car fixed, pay for medical care, or to cover a monthly bill.

What a fantastic idea, to uses all your old wool oddment and recycles them into a usefull bag, Love that idea, well done.


Lovely colours lucy! The blanket looks cheerful. Your attic is very beautiful:)


I agree that crocheting is like meditating, its got me through some rough times.

Lovely pictures - and you've given me an idea for our Campervan! Years ago, when my daughters were small, I used to crochet granny squares (with each round in a different colour) and stitch them into blankets, so I'm going to dig out all my scraps of wool and start again...


This is another useful project that will give inspiration to all your reader's. We don't have to be expensive by buying those things that we can make. All we need is prepare these tools that are needed on this project.


Begged my husband to let me go on the Provence trip, but it was bad timing for finances and work. SO disappointed. But hoping it is as fun as it looks and everyone has lots of creative crochet time!


you sparked me into making a granny afghan. I love the colors you are using as well. Happy you had a great week.. :)


In fact - the reason I popped on here was to find your bobble edging for it. ho hum...x


Oh my gosh, I don't believe it! I am just finishing the edges on a baby blanket done the same way with the sameyish colours!!! As if? Watch this space for a ta-da. Mine are just four rounds though.


Love the new project!


Dear Lucy,I love your blog. It is so cheerful and colourful. Your projects are gorgeous. I was wondering about copyright on your patterns, as I would like to use some of them to make things to sell at our local craft market. I have already made two of your birdies and tried out the flowers for my children.They were a BIG hit.Thaks for making crochet easy and accessible


Hi Lucy, I've loved working with Stylecraft ever since you introduced us to it. Another beautiful blanket for the Connievan.
I'm sure those lucky enough to be coming to Provence will have a wonderful time.
I've just spent a few days in the Lake District and you would love something really special which has appeared in the garden of William Wordsworth's childhood home.

Hello Lucy, my lovely! Long time no comment! Been kept waaaaay to busy by the kiddos this summer, I had so many bloggy things planned and nothing has come to fruition yet! I love the colours of your yarns against the backdrop of the stone in your back yard - so cheery and bright xx


I love following your blog and your designs are inspiring. I am fairly new to crochet but am so enjoying it. However, my shoulders and neck get really tight and stiff after a relatively short period of crochet. Any top tips on avoiding stiffness in the neck? It gives me a headache but I don't want to stop crocheting! Sarah


Lovely colours and a beautiful new project.It would be great if I would have time to make something like that to Tana and Leria. Your blog is inspirational.

Hi - I'm new to your blog and am wondering about the origin of the word Connievan. I know a caravan is what we call a camper in the US but Connievan seems to be a very personal name for YOUR caravan. Where does it come from?
