I love this post. So inspiring in so many ways. I have three small boys (5, 3 & 1) and find it so hard to fit in crafty pursuits with so much else happening. I love how your ripple took about a year to make (which seems doable to me) and fit in so many small and fulfilling projects in between to keep you motivated. What a wonderful array of projects in one year.


Lucy, so many beautiful projects this year!!

Will you tell us how you made the rose adorned heart? It's beautiful and would be fantastic for Valentines day.

Thank-you for sharing your creative life, you are an inspiration!!. May 2013 be kind to you and yours.

What an amazing colourful crochet year you have had! Your colour cominations are so pretty and cheerful. They always make me smile. I love following your blog and seeing what you are doing. Will you be making any more things for Connivan this year? Can't wait to pop over and see your Facebook page. xxx


My 15-year-old daughter and I have taught ourselves to crochet after we discovered your blog about a year ago. Thank you so much for your inspiration. Your blog is such a colourful and happy place to visit. All the best to you and your family for the new year!


Lucy I have loved looking at your blog in 2012 and it has been very inspirational.I wanted to say thank you and share some of the makes you inspired me to do. The colours are very different as I am learning to spin and used natural fleece for a couple of them. You can peep at them here http://fiddlefaddlingaway.blogspot.co.uk
The next project will be the hat. Thanks and HAPPY NEW YEAR.


I don't think you know how much of an inspiration you are! :)


May your family be blessed this New Year Lucy. I am so excited about your new things - Facebook page, and the Yarndale event in September 2013. Definitely be making my way up the motorway for that event! Here in Somerset, I am planning a few more of my own crochet creations and hopefully finish a few ongoing projects. Love following you, it is such a delight. Janette


Adorable work!
You have the rainbow in the hands :)



Wow, you've did a lot of work! Beautiful to see it all together like this.

Love, Kirsten


Hi Lucy, Can you include sometime soon on your blog the instructions for the August heart project which you made as a gift for a friend. Keep up the great work - I enjoy all the bits and pieces which you include in your updates - I really do love the "tourist" info. aspect as well - keep those beautiful photos coming.

Hi, Lucy! Your crochet milestones are gorgeous:) Congrats on accomplishing so many colorful things!Looking forward to more of such beauty from you:) Take care!


Ooo, I was awaiting this post and hoping you would do it again this year. Amazing! Your Christmas wreath makes me ecstatic! The bower birds are amazing, your Christmas card is gorgeous and so creative...on and on. Thank you for another year of hooky inspiration.


Me encanta el colorido de tus trabajos :)


Although I am much more a fan of your floral
displays, I admire your enthusiasm for your handiwork. Most of us are too modest by far.
So lovely to see the piggies looking happy and bright-eyed on your facebook page :)
When hubby is on night time emergencies and i find my internal clock disrupted, it's a blessing to have a sweet place such as this this to visit. Your blog is a very good read as well as a visual treat!


Ya! a color fix! You have been busy this year. I have not finished one project I started :( oh well just keep swimming lol.


Your colors are so fabulous!

I find myself wanting to do similar projects and then I grumble to myself that my colors will never stand up to yours hahaha I like softer colors for my home and earthy tones but Im so drawn to your colorful crochet that it leaves me torn...should I give a rainbow "something" a try? Or just do it in my own color pallet. Decisions, decisions ;)

Very great post as always.

You are so inspiring. I would love to be half the crochet-er you are.


So many inspirations! You truly are a gift to us wooly people and the colorful world in general.. thanks for all the love :))


Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!!!


This makes me wanna go find all sorts of colourful yarn and make beautiful things! You are a true inspiration! Thank you so much for continuing to share all of this with us. This is the first crochet blog I found, at the start of this year, and have been coming back as often as I could, and have enjoyed every minute. thank you so very much for being the lovely lady that you are. xoxo, Jess


Beautiful! Can't wait to see what 2013 brings!


Lucy - you are spoiling us with this year-end stuff.
I can't bear it if I have no flowers and currently have pink hyacinths blooming in my sewing room - otherwise referred to as the 'room-of-doom'!!
Daffodils will be here soon :)
