Hi Lucy!
I have just ordered a pink yarn pack to Stylecraft Special DK, I'm looking forward to start crocheting this for my coming nephew!! I'm from Spain, and I don't know if I will find Simply Crochet magazine here. Is there any option for me getting the pattern?

What gorgeous bunting! And it's fascinating to see the behind-the-scenes studio shot. Thanks for all the colourful inspiration!

Lucie Drolet

Hy Lucy,
the colors you have chosen are totally lovely. Continue your great job. You inspire us all. Whenever I have the opportunity I procure the magazine


Great bunting and lovely colours, I must try that too. I never tried Stylecraft, but I love the denim colour, so I must order some balls of this yarn.

PS: Bert is cute.

Hi Lucy, Just love the bunting and he colours you have used....I would like crochet the coastal ripple..Would you mind giving mt the colours that you used and the order in whichyou used them. tried to find the information on your blog but could'nt. Thank you so much....


Hi Lucy! Cricket, what a gorgeous pattern! Like you say, perfect as a baby gift. Thank you for sharing the behind-the-scenes pics, too. I have a pattern in Simply Crochet for the first time in this same issue and its rather thrilling to see how my shawl (page 19) looks when someone else has styled and photographed it! Can't wait to hook up some bunting for my shed now :-) Kath xxx


Lucy, have you seen these cute pinwheels with top stitching? They remind me of those huge colorful lollipops.


Lucie Drlet

Wow!!! Quel talent! Je vais essyer de trouver le magazine au Québec Canada. XXX

Love seeing and hearing about your colorful life. Happy to hear you are making a little money with it as well as you share so much with all your readers. I'm very happy for you.

Lovely Lucy as always a fabulous post - it was amazing to see what they do with the photographs! I have finished your bag Lucy although it looks a tad bigger than yours and I wonder if I should have used a smaller hook, some people say no some say yes so I am a bit confused! Any help gratefully received, just have the straps to do now and the beautiful flowers and then stand back and admire......I am sorry that I have not been across as regularly lately but hopefully work will calm down a little now and I can visit you every post. Have a fabulous weekend Lucy. Big hugs, Dorothyxxxxxxxxxxxxx


The pink bunting for Big Girls? G-string knickers, lol! I used to wear bikinis made from these back in the 70's!


Shameless advertising and promoting of your yarn packs to make money from gullible fans.

Thank you Lucy for the tips on color combining! I always am amazed with the way you can put colors together and with this post, I feel more confident.


Wow ....Lovely work... Just amazing!!!Love the triangles, beautiful colours, all of them!!!

Hi Lucy, I'm back for the second day of re-reading your blog. So enjoy your writing style and the way you guide us through your choices and explain the selection of the yarn, then forward to the finished project. That, in my opinion, is the best and most fun part. Bert, the nosey neighbor, is adorable! My furry family members always try to squeeze into the shots. lol


I love the blue bunting. Interesting post "behind-the-scenes" :)


Fantastic bunting, and a lovely pattern. How interesting to see how the professionals photograph things, it's an eye opener! I'm glad things are going so well for you, it's such a pleasure to follow your creative journey. Have a good Sunday. CJ xx


Ooo! Lucy, rich and spicy colours! Yumeeee! I think you are morphing from a mum to a Goddess! xox


It's completely gorgeous bunting, Lucy. Even before I saw the girly colors I was thinking it would be pretty in feminine hues for my daughters' room. So I'm going to have them choose two colors each and make them some bunting for the room they share.


This was fun to read. I completely sympathise with the business of photographing bunting. My best efforts have included using the panoramic function on my camera or just giving up and lying it on the floor. It's really hard to find just the right spot to hang it that also has consistent light and a plain background. Yours look nice close up though anyway. Glad you are getting paid for your work. You deserve it.


Fabulous and must say I really liked your picture with Burt, got to love how cat's just have to get in the picture lol


Lovely Lucy. I posted my crochet bunting a few days ago. With lots of photos of the diminished bunting in the Norwegian woods. Come over and see! http://eclectichomelife.blogspot.no/2014/05/crocheted-heart-bunting-lots-of-it.html?m=1


..... Bert liked to visit the Attic as he knew there would be sqidgy yarn to get his claws into....
He would risk one of his nine lives to be invited to Yarndale....
