Just wondering if the spot-on edging tutorial ever got posted. I can't find it. Thanks! :^)

You are so gifted. I love everything you create and want to make them all. I've recently moved from the Mojave Desert in southern California and have read your blog about your family, home, town, adventures and of course creations, as an escape into cheerful color and imagination. Thank you so much for kindly sharing with us.

I love the pictures of your vacation to Whitby. If or When i get to visit England i'll definitely go there.

Lucy, I love what you are doing for Emma & I & the Comic Relief doll project. This picture of the hyacinths makes me smile, Spring is just around the corner and Hyacinths, narcissi & crocus remind me of my lovely departed friend Elspeth Thompson. I know she would have loved your blog if she was still with us.
I hope I get to meet you.

Such cute little granny squares! I love it when you're waiting for a flower to start blooming, but you have no idea what colour it's going to be :)

I just love the work you do with granny squares etc its fab how on earth you get the time to do it all is amazing, you have given me so much inspiration to do blankets for my five grandkids when I felt my crocheting had gone stale you are so blessed with a talent and thanks for sharing it with me


Those tiny squares are so fun - just a bowl full for decoration is cheery, let alone the anticipation of what you can create with them!


I love your blog Lucy - can't sleep tonight so have just spent a happy hour trawling through your lovely images and happy stories ... divine. Thanks so much for the inspiration xxxx


It's wonderfull!

Dear Lucy, my lovely friend H introduced me to crochet just before christmas and i have been totally obsessed with it ever since! You could say i am hooked. I have been following tutorials on Youtube on how to work the different stitches, learnt about the US and UK terminology, a little bit about the different types of yarn, although what really bowls me over is the diversity in colour that is available, I love it! I have found you a couple of weeks back and very much like your style of writing and your wonderfully warm attitude and love of life's little pleasures. I am a French mum of 2, girl of 12 and boy of 9, and like you feel really lucky and happy in my everyday life. So I wanted to say a big thank you for posting your sunny comments and flowers and beautiffuly talented crochets projects! Keep up the happy.


beautiful view from your window...


Hi Lucy! About two years now i look on your 'Attic' site! You inspired me to make granny squares myself. I also made the colourful snake... I even gave him a name :)

Have a nice day!


Hi Lucy. Love the little squares-so pretty and colorful! I have a little post and tutorial on my blog on crocheted photo frames if you would like to see! (from one fellow crocheter to another!)


Oh my gosh, I caught my breath when I saw that bowl of tiny squares! What a colorful delight on a dreary winter day!


Love the picture of the snow, how pretty. The small granny squares are so cute.


hello Lucy, I cant wait to see what you plan to do with those little granny squares. I enjoy your blog and your outlook on life so much, even if it is just a glimpse. Have a great day! Im goin to learn Tunisian crochet. I found you tube tutorials etc on it and have already bought a afghan hook for it. I crochet already but am excited to learn more. Thank you for sharing all you do.. Leah


I just found your blog and cannot stop looking and reading! Your crochet is gorgeous- you are truly an artist, as well as a wonderful photographer. I am rather new to crochet but would love to attempt that amazing snake you made a few years ago. I've been searching your blog to see if you ever starting selling the yarn you used but haven't located it. What is the brand name of that yarn? I also hope to become good enough to make crochet the gorgeous ruffle flower pillow.
I hope this is a good way to send a message.
Than you,


I like your blogg too! Heidi from Norway

Love your blog - I am new to it and cannot get over your wonderful use of color - super!!! What kind of yarn do you use for your "grannies" - the colors and gauge appear perfect!!!


It's so lovely to see signs that Spring is on the way despite the winter weather. I Can't wait to find out what all the lovely colourful mini granny square are for, so exciting !!


Ooh loving the rainbow squares of loveliness. Tres cute.


I've just spotted the destination of your weeny granny squares!
