Does anyone have a link to the tutorial for the sunflower? I've tried to follow the original pattern from skip to my Lou but it's very difficult. Someone mentioned that there was an easier version to follow on here but I can't find it. Desperate to make them as button holes for my wedding!


Lucy...feel so lucky to have a Drops yarn shop here in San Luis Obispo. I can go and squidge it any time I feel the need. Am making something with baby drops Merino right now, sort of cornflower blue. Fingerless mittens.

Re: marigold flowers, they don't have any sort of dark, flat center petals like sunflowers do. They are just tiny up-and-coming petals ready to unfurl. Maybe that would help in shaping? Can
t wait to see your wreath. Happy,
happy fall to you.


Oh I love that Drops Merino, I knitted a stack of little people beanies in it, and they were soooo soft, and super stretchy!

Nice, Lucy! Can't wait to see the wreath finished. The flowers are gorgeous, and the colors perfect. I love a fire also. Nothing like sitting in front of a fire with hot chocolate, a cup of tea, or a nice glass of wine. And some kind of yarns work, of course! Or a good book, or just snuggling with the kids, or hubby. Oh, I am getting carried away. Love your post, as usual. xxoo. JO


I absolutely love the flowers---the sunflower and marigold are beautiful, they look so realistic! I will be looking for the tutorial in case you can post it. Happy Fall! I love the cozy pictures too!

Loving the sun flower. Looking forward to seein the wreath finished. Enjoy the rest of your week off together.


Beautiful colours and beautiful flowers, I can't wait to see the finished result and your lovely tutorials too. Will you be adding a Bower Bird too? xx

I love how your husband takes some time off at half term for family time. My husband travels a lot for work and as a result gets some time in lieu. Our school terms are ten weeks long so we are crazily busy for the term as I'm a teacher at our local government high school. My kids attend school with me so I'm lucky that we get to spend a bit more time together than many families do.

During the holidays my husband has time off or works out of his office and we get to do lots of together things with our 13 and 17 year olds. We are making the most of this as our son finishes high school in October next year.

Enjoy the rest of your week off and thank you for sharing your life with us.


How wonderful it is at your house. Cosy, warm and smelling delicious. Can't wait to see more of your wreath. Hope you all have a lovely half term Lucy.

Hi Lucy,

I also love the change from Summer to Autumn and was seriously getting into Autumn when bang!!, along came Winter. So much for dreaming about the Autumn decorating, moving on to Winter!! Enjoy your week with the family. Being a stay at home mom is the best job anyone could wish for.


What beautiful crochet work you do! I would love the pattern, if she agrees to it. A bit of wine, some yarn to work up, and the family at home......just a perfectly lovely time!

I must add, those candles look delightful!

We've had reports of your bad weather on our news here in New Zealand. Sounds like hunkering down is the best thing to be doing over there at the moment. Keep cosy! Katherine x


Was thinking about you when I heard of the storms in the UK...hunkering down with family, fire and some crochet sounds like a plan to me. Be safe, hugs MO

Jane Dubinski

Drops Big Merino. Yes indeedy, one of the most scrumptious yarns I have used to date. I am making my son a ripple blanket in it as we speak - your pattern incidentally - and it is totally lush! Looking forward to the wreath! Jane xx


We've been watching the bad weather you are having, here in Australia. Very disturbing! Love your colour card samples for your wreath! How DO you manage with three little children inside in such bad weather?!!! What do you get up to? A lot of dreaming about better weather me thinks!


Your wreath is going to be wonderful. Love Autumn so much. We are in crazy spring weather here...sunny one minute and hailing the next

The House of Jones

Sounds like the perfect weekend. That's the lovely thing about rubbish weather - and excuse to bed down and fire on and snuggle time without feeling guilty that you should be outside :)

Enjoy half term with your Littlies,

Jones x


Lucy...I thought of you when I saw on the BBC here in the US this morning that England was being seriously buffeted by rain and high winds...I do hope that you and your family are safe! I placed my very first order with Deramores last week for a "Lucy Pack" of Stylecraft Special DK weight yarn for baby afghans for TWO little grandchildren due this coming April...!! In fact, I got some good guidance from another member of your Ravelry group...! Be well and safe......!!

Susan Smith

Lovely post and those flowers look great. Glad the north wasn't hit quite so fiercely by the storm. All take care.

Holley Downs

So looking forward to the sunflower pattern. It is lovely! You inspire me to try my hand at a crocheted wreath . . . think I will give it a go.
Love your blog!


Lovely warm evocative post Lucy- made me want to put our fire on now! It's actually covered in fairy lights which are very pretty but make it not easy to put the fire on!

Ligia Seabra

Lovely post, Lucy. I love the sunflower. The weather here it's similar, wet-wet-wet, but the temperature is still high for Autumn. Enjoy the half-term with your family. xx


lovely, lovely, lovely - enjoy the rest of half term week ..... my grandson got in the tree this afternoon and there are crochet balls hanging from it - 21 of them .... love, love, love - pic on facebook xx
