Hi Lucy,

Absolutley love your blog. The colours never fail to cheer me up! I simply love the way you bring them all together.
IN the above mosaic for February, I love the first picture of small squares of multiple colours.... what did you use them for?


If they aren't scheduled they aren't "expected". After a while anything "expected" starts to become a habit and once it is a habit it loses its spontaneity and beauty. Unexpected involves a little surprise, a tiny shock of gorgeousness to the system like a chocolate bickie and a good cup of tea after a hard day :). Cheers on not being too organised :)

Hi, I've been following your blog for a couple of years.... I found it when trying ( the first of many times) to teach my self to crochet.... I initially wanted to make a blanket and on a google search a link for your blog came up.... I'm glad it did, I love the simple homely warmth and Appreciation you share for every day happenings of family life.

Over a year ago when I found out I was pregnant I set my self the task of making a small pram blanket.... My daughter is now nearly 7 months old!!!!

I was browsing through your recent posts this evening and noticed on the one the photo of you holding a stone..... Did you make the gloves yourself ? They are lovely and I love gloves.... Essential with pram pushing and dog walks. If you did make them -is there a pattern you could put a link to? And also are there any very simple straightforward beginner crochet books you would recommend to get me started???
With a bit of luck and a lot of optimism maybe by next winter I will have a new cosy pair of gloves to wear and my daughter a new blanket to keep her warm!

Hope the spring sunshine and warmth comes to you soon


I read all your blog, from the begining to the end.
It's like a rainbow!!!


I like your blog, I've look all over in four days, I
love your blankets.
I'm sorry by my English: I'm Italian!!!!

Such a beautiful blog!


Hi Lucy, my friend has introduced me to your wonderful website and blog and I wish I had found it sooner, so many beautiful creations! <3
I adore the Bower Bird you have made and wondered if you have done a tutuorial for it as I couldn't find one?? xx


Hi Lucy! I just found your blog while browsing Ravelry for something with colorwork. Came across with your crochet granny stripes blanket. :) So here I am and I'm already loving it! Such inspiring projects and photos and lovely sceneries from England. I am such an England enthusiast. Need to get there at least once a year. So greetings from Finland and have a great spring! :)

Hey Lucy!
When I see women crocheting in waiting rooms, I always tell them about your blog! HA! You are becoming famous in the Atlanta area just from my big mouth! :-)
Take care!


Hola Lucy!!!! Do you read in spanish? Soy Fabi, de Argentina. Descubrí tu blog hace un mes, cuando mi marido enfermó, y lo empecé a leer desde el inicio... fué una gran compañía!!! ya casi termino de leer el año 2008.
Tu blog está lleno de inspiración!!! Y alegría!!! Me hizo muy bien en este tiempo triste. Ya operaron a mi marido de un tumor de riñón...
Yo vivo en Buenos Aires, en una casa de casi 100 años! construida al estilo y con materiales holandeses! Me siento muy identificada con tu estilo!
Te mando un beso grande! See you soon!

They are gorgeous. I like to do that as well.


I love the monthly mosaics! So colorful and cheery. I can relate to things getting done spontaneously...in my household that seems to be the only way to doing things.

Hi and what happy 60 months its been!!!!!! Can' wait for the next 60!!!! I often re-read your MM when there's nothing else going on - it's very inspiring!!


Oh good Lord! how many moments of fun...

Shelley in SC

So sweet!! I can never get enough of those bright yarn-y blankets. Such a happy jumble of colors!!


I am a big fan of your pictures! Thank you.


Started following your blog about 2 years ago and love it! Really enjoyed looking back at the monthly mosaics as well looking at the ones I didn't see originally. It's a real achievement!


Look!!! Your patterns has been featured


I love your mosaics, no matter when they are posted! Always a little sunshine no matter what kind of day it is :)

p.s. Can't wait to see what you are doing with your studio space. I have finally acquired 'studio space' in my home and need inspiration. (And someone to come in and organize it for me! ha!)


Wow : happy 60 mosaics to you! I would love to do something similar over on my little blog. It must be so lovely looking back over each month and seeing all of your wonderful colourful memories coming together. Your photos are fab :-)


I love reading your blog and love looking at your crochet and photos. Forgive me if I am wrong but I was browsing on eBay & looking at crochet items and came across someone who sells many different types of CDs which have tutorials. One caught my eye as it was a photo of your bag & a tutorial on it?? I swear it was actually your photo too- just wondering if you knew this & whether someone is stealing your patterns?


All I can say is a BIG THANK YOU.
I just love you and your blog, thanks for taking time out of your busy day to write it.
