If inam correct you used a DK weight yarn for the patchwork blanket. What size crochet hook did you use? Also, how has it held up with the join as you go method? I desperately want to make a blanket like this for my bed, but my granny squares always seem so open. Any pointers on getting such small holes?
Thanks, love your blog!

Good Morning Lucy!! I absolutely love your blog!! I love visiting to see what your up to with your next project, and enjoy all of your beautiful pictures.....I just signed up for a blog here yesterday, and so much to learn! I think I will spring for the 395.00 and have someone fix everything for me! Lol....one day of course....

Nice to be here, and nice to meet you!! Have a lovely day!! Sandy

I have just been looking at eBay Crochet Patterns and i think someone is selling what looks like your pattern.
The name is scoop0710 and the person is in Blackburn,Lancashire.
The sale is up in an hour so I should look as soon as you can.
I'm sure it's your bag photo, therefore your pattern.
If you go to Crochet Patterns you will find it.


This is just the right time of year to have three things that make your heart go skippy! and a fresh flower in February would certainly do the same for mine :) Thank you for sharing your colors and cheer ~ looking forward to your Tah-Dah!


I've been in a bit of a crochet slump the past couple of months...but visiting your blog always makes me feel happy and more inspired. Your color choices are brilliant! xoxo

I love seasonal rituals - yours are so pretty.
And, I just LOVE that wee painting. I bought a couple of canvases at Hobbycraft over Christmas when they were on sale - ooo, I think I might tackle a still life - thanks :)


OMG, I adore your painting. I am quite simply a sucker for primitive folk art ... I'm off to have a peek at Natalie's website right now - thanks for the intro lovely


ooo I'm just coming to the edge of a blanket and I love your edging! Can't wait for the instructions - I've been trying to work it out from the photo without success. It looks very clever.


love that little splash of red on the border! can't wait to see how to do this---you've guided this non-crocheter into your hooky world!!

Its just lovely to see a room decorated with all handmade goodies. Love the russian dollies have a set of wooden ones myself. Hugs


Thank you for sharing the sources of "skippy happiness" today. It was just what I needed! -an infusion of colour and joy! Thank you!


Came by your blog when i googled "how to make a caravan cosy",and I was hooked. Just love the diary element and am enjoying all your creations,
I am surrounded by neutral everything and have been seduced by your rainbow of colour and bought red/green t towels and a red spotty tray,
Family in a state of shock!Only just started LOL

Oooo. I love that painting. I just finished up a bunch of crocheting this week to sell on Etsy. Hope you have a great weekend!

Mary Laughman

Love your delightful Russian Peasant Dolls, can I buy this pattern from you? Love all your work, plus you inspire me to crochet with brilliant colors. Thank you so much!!!!!

Natasha Wells

Oooo very beautiful. I am a new visitor to your blog and am so inspired. Thank you for you lovely clear instructions too.


You have such a great eye for color - the border looks great! I can't wait to see the whole afghan. My heart is skippy-happy every time I look at my neat ripple afghan I just finished a few days ago. I have it draped over the back of the sofa so you can see it no matter where you are in the room. And the tin covers I made for my herbs make me happy, too. And all because of you. Thanks!


Can't wait to find out about your edging it looks fabulous!

Three very good things, Lucy - no wonder they made you happy. I love celebrating the simple things each week. :-)
