Love your blog! I'm New to blogging, check out mine(:



Hey there, I absolutely love your work. I used your pattern for a ripple stitch to creat a baby blanket for a friend. Your work gives so much inspiration, sp much that I sometimes don't know where to start! I just created my own blog on WordPress called obsessivecrochetdisorder, would love to know what you think of my blanket because I am still learning.

My blog is obsessivecrochetdisorder.wordpress.com


This was really treat to the eyes!!

I love your crochet flowers! So decorative - thanks for sharing!


Tulips are my favourite flowers as well and everyone knows that by now ;-) but I've never ever gotten any :-( and certainly not the amount you did!!!! I would be over the moon if I saw this. Guess my husband is not the flower buying kind. I often think flower shops scare him because he's never bought me flowers. "Just buy the flowers you like", he says but he doesn't seem to understand that that's not the same as getting flowers as a gift. Now I'm scrolling back all the way up to admire your HUGE bouquet of flowers again. I think your husband bought all the tulips in the flower shop, don't you?


I really love the tulips!
Your blog is a great inspiration for me.
I love all the colours en de great pictures you make!

Beautiful tulips, makes me feel like Spring really should be here!


I love the tulips, pictures and crochet


What a beautiful bouquet! You are a lucky mum. Your kids (and husband) know you well. Take as many pictures of these tulips as possible to "keep" them and remind you this lovely day (BTW, happy mother day).
I also love tulips, but here, in France, fresh flowers are unfortunately more expensive than in UK. I am sure that, next spring, you will succeed to crochet a tulip as you did with daffodils.
Thanks a lot for the pattern of the Japanese quince flowers. They are so lovely. I will crochet a cluster of them to put, with a magnet, on the fridge. Yesterday, I put some branches of them (a bit thorny) with some big red buds in a vase to get some colors in the house and feel a bit of spring despite the dreary, cold and windy weather. I am sure your pattern could be adapted (one or two rows in addition) to create crocus.
At first, when I saw your glory of snow flowers, I thought about the blue bell flowers you have in UK in the woods.

Thanks again Lucy for your wonderful patterns and happy five year anniversary for your blog. It's such a joy to read it: your articles are so colorful, creative, and joyful. Thanks to them, I even improve my English ;) For all these reasons, your blog is one of my favorites. Any of your posts is a treat for me. Thanks again.


The tulips are so lovely. You definitely have a happy day and you deserve it.


Lovely flowers, I think I may be getting flowers of a Cath Kidston variety when eldest son arrives for a visit tomorrow :-)
I'm just starting to blog again after a break of a few years due to perrsonal reasons. So good to be back.


Oh my, I think those tulips are what would be called a "bumper crop"! I am so glad you had a lovely Mothers' Day. Ours in the U.S. is in May, but you prolly knew that. Anyway, Belated Happy Mothers' Day! You deserve it, you are an inspiration and an encouragement to mothers everywhere.


I love the colour combop of the stripes of the wreath! would look also amazing without the flowers!

Beautiful, tulips are my favourite too! I knew I recognised those gorgeous little pink flowers - I have a Japanese Quince tree in my garden and I just love the vibrant blossom on it :0)


What beautiful flowers - lucky you!
Thank you for all of the wonderful tutorials - I've been getting stuck in and having a go.. http://www.homebakedonline.com/2013/03/as-if-my-addiction-to-yarn-crafts-wasnt.html



J'aime beaucoup vos ouvrages.
Belle journée à vous,


What beautiful flowers - your lovely tulips and your little creations. Your Easter wreath will be gorgeous.

Hi Lucy What a perfect day you had!!!!!!!!

A wonderful Mother's Day. And the tulips are just so gorgeous. I have to be honest they were not my favorites until my dad passed away and I planted some in his honor ( 3 years ago) in my front yard. Now I cannot wait until spring to check and see when they are springing out... They are purple and every year I get more. They remind me of my love to my dad... And how much it keeps growing even though he is not here any longer. So now I do love tulips also. Flowers and colors have always been my favorite things. I think that is also one of the reasons I love our blog so much :)

Dear Lucy I'm with you on colour thing inspired by flowers. I put tulip bulbs
in called Dutch still life because it reminded me of a painting. Have a quince
in the garden which is an apricot shade. Am aiming to fill the small garden
behind the terraced house with as much colour as possible.

wow - that's a lot of tulips! I adore the little flowers you've made. They're so pretty!
