Hi, I love these florals! Can you please let me know something about how you crocheted the pink and yellow flower in the upper left corner of your photo? It looks like there's a row of yellow right after the stitches worked into the ring. But there's only a touch of yellow stitches in this flower. It makes this flower look just like little wild roses. Beautiful! Thank you so much for your work.


Anyone with older aluminum siding will be well aware of the paint chalking problem. You really cannot have too many, especially if you enjoy this business and plan to stay in it for a while. Employing a professional is what many people would do however it is high-priced whereas painting by yourself is an efficient notion nonetheless it may not create the desired results.

My first comment to you! Not to sauvvy with this stuff.
Love your website?blob? not sure which.
Reaaallly love your colorwork and have even made a "Lucy" purse myself. Would very much like to send you a pic of my Lucy inspired purse but not sure how to attach to this comment. Would like you to share your techniques for tying in/working in ends for all those color changes. Your work is beautiful!


I am twitching with excitement about those flowers! Who would have thought that crocheting actually has style! I thought that I was relegated to the background where knitting was de rigueur and crocheting was the "daggy" older sister who stayed in the background but you just blew me out of the water!!! What gorgeousness those flowers! I just got excited all over again by crochet and all I have to do is fend Earl (dog) off my yarn and I can make these? It's on!


Those little flowers are so beautiful. Really inspiring me to learn crochet.

I just like the essential details you provide you inside your articles.I'll save your web log and examine out once more here on a frequent basis.


Hi Lucy...how do you make your Chocolate dusted coffee? Sounds yummy!


Just in case you wanted a few more flowers to crochet, I can highly recommend this book - really well written patterns, lovely pictures and TONS of inspiration!

I have only recently taken up crocheting and started following your blog. I'm sure you get asked these question many time, but what yarn do you use the most and what are your favourite yarns?

I've started with Hayfield Bonus Dk (Sidar) from Hobbycraft, it's a value range. I'm nervous about buying anything too expensive in case I make a hash of it and ruin good yarn. I'm making a couple of blankets from granny squares for my two little girls (7yo & 5yo) and my confidence is growing.

So I am interested to learn what other brands are a bit better and lovely to work with, but won't break the bank, any tips are most welcome.


Oh I got tulips too, beautiful colours, though not as big a bunch as yours.

I am loving them though.


That last photo sent my heart to doing a happy jig. What a beautiful bunch of yarny blooms! I can't wait to see this one all done.


All this talk of Spring is a bit depressing, even if the weather over there is still so bad. We are heading into winter without even any snow to look forward too. Our winters are bitterly cold and everything is brown and smoggy. It is like living in a world without colour for a couple of months. Maybe I should make a Spring wreath and hang it up to help me through the winter?


hey lucy,how do i post my photos of recent tasks accomplished? thanks to your tutorials; x


No fair! You are having way too much fun!
*pouty face*

I can't wait to see your pretty flowery wreath....maybe by the time you are done and Easter is here it will be warmer and Spring will have sprung. Terribly, terribly cold today!



I love your eastery colors! The flowers are turning out fantastic! Can't wait to see the finished wreath.


Hi Lucy, snowing here and -3 during the day!!
Only learnt to crochet two months ago and have attempted a few flowers and leaves! I attached them to a willow wreath I made a few years ago along with ribbon and hope it will look "Easterish!" (Is there such a word?!)


Do you have a pattern for the polyanthus? Pleasey, please! I've just finished 3 of your lovely daffodils but I NEED the others to keep them company. X

my name is Claudia and i am from romania. i like all the things made by you. You are a verry good inspiration for me.
could you tell me what kind of yarn do you use for all this ?
thank you
( sorry, i'm not a verry good english speaker and writer, better in french )


Seeing your crochet flowers has just made me all giddy for Spring time! Where is it hiding? Been watching all those crocuses in my garden making their little way out of the ground over the last couple of weeks but we need more warmth and sun!

Kathie (Prairie Stitcher)

I so want to learn to make flowers and birds with crochet. Where to begin? I'm a quilt designer. Do I have time for this? But I must have some of these little crocheted wonders! Help.


I just love all the colors in your blog! :)


Definitely in need of a bit of Spring - it was so cold today! Looking forward to the Easter wreath.


Just lovely! Happy new week!
