Enjoyed the simple pleasures tour. Brightened my morning. Also loved the color of the colander you rinsed the cherries in. And you're right - acid green against a deep blue sky is one of my all time favorite color combos!

bonjour je m'appelle Maryse, je suis française. j'habite une région au bord de l'atlantique à ROCHEFORT SUR MER.
J'ai découvert votre site par hasard et je suis enchantée de toutes vos photos, de tous vos travaux, je trouve tout extraordinaire, et je me retrouve dans votre façon de voir la vie, des petits bonheurs simple !! c'est une bouffée d'air formidable de traverser votre blog
Je fais moi meme quelques travaux d'aiguilles, ou peintures mais je regrette de n'avoir jamais assez de temps pour en faire plus !
Bonne continuation, et merci de m'avoir fait rêver


What a visually enjoyable, scrumptious time you are having. All that and presents too! Lucky Lucy x

Loving the mandalas.

Taciana Simmons

Love every single one of them... Especially the mandalas and the salad. My mom loves mandalas and she loves to paint them. She lives in Brazil and she now lives with my sister after my dad passed away. I told her about your blog and she loves it... I told her to watch for the mandala's pictures and she is very excited about it. Can't wait to see them all. :)
Ps: I just finished my Japanese flower blanket and will be posting it in my blog this coming weekend.

Hi Lucy, gorgeous photos as usual; that salad looks delicious. Just wanted to say another quick thank you for your tutorials. I've just finished my 'Manly Blanket' and now want to learn how to ripple - do you think I can get a ripple finished by my daughter's birthday at the end of November?! Love the flip flops by the way! x


Delicous photos! :) your studio look sooo great! Just showed the pic to my boyfriend and told himi want my office to look lile this...

Take care


Bright, cheerful days :) The mandalas are so beautifully colorful!

I have been reading your post for a couple of months now. I love your pictures. The colors are delicious and your crocheting is wonderful. I am truly a fan Your blog is always one of the first that I read and am never disappointed


Wow, the mandalas are amazing! I'm with you on the lattes - I've been enjoying mine iced in a mason jar.


These are absolutely lovely happies. The mandalas are all beautiful and although they are all different it would be impossible to pick a favourite.


Hello Lucy, a friend introduced me to your blog a couple of months ago and I absolutely adore it! You inspired me to dig out the crochet hook and make myself a blanket. The colors you use make me so happy and I look forward to every post!

Hi, Lucy! I'm Nadya. I read a lot of creative blogs lately and I stopped by to say You that yours is the one I enjoy most! The language you use is so vivid and rich! I am from Latvia, so English is not my mother tongue. I actually learned from your posts some nice new words :) Have a nice day, Nadya.

Lovely snippets of May. A favorite here, everything is so green and lush.I pegged my first load of laundry out today as well (had to wait till the pollen had past, allergy suffers here).Which I mustn't forget to bring in, now that I think about it.lol That picture of all the mandalas is gorgeous! It would make lovely cards (love the sandals/flip-flops too).Happy May days!


Do you always use the same brand and fiber content yarn when you make these blankets? Is the yarn wool or wool blends? Washable?
And what is a."Mandala?
