Dear Lucy, really good to have you back. May the coming Spring days bring you much health and vitality! Many congratulations on your 10th anniversary and thank you so much for sharing all that you do.


Good you're feeling a little brighter. Missed you! :)


Whew! I was worried! You certainly did do a lot and took photographic proof! Looking lots and lots like spring!
Your mandalas on FB are beautiful. I am so looking forward to seeing the tutorial!

Susan Smith

Lovely to see a post pop up & see that the winter blues are fading & your energy levels returning. Look forward to seeing lovely spring photos & your current projects come to fruition. Take care, stay warm & huggles.

Diane Smith

So nice to see you back. I hope you will soon be 100% again. I am not a crocheter as such, but I love your photos and have missed them. I came across your blog quite by accident about 12 months ago and have taken inspiration from it for other projects that I do. Take care you are much appreciated.


Is it possible to purchase some crochet edging guidance/assistance? (Sorry, this is the only way I could figure out to contact you and you seem very knowledgeable).
I have a photograph of a blanket with an edge I would like to use on my finished blanket but don't have a pattern & don't know quite how they made the edge. I don't really read patterns either, I learned from a cousin when I was a young girl, and have been crocheting in various stitches ever since just from what I learned, but never really put an edge on anything before, just left it be. Still won an award at the county fair back when I was 12, but I'd like to move onto a more finished product now in my old age (50)! Haha.

Congrats on the blogiversary! And that blue tray - I recognise it from my childhood. I think my grandparents had the same tray, or my aunt and uncle, or maybe my parents. I think another family member had the same pattern or a very similar one in a beige/brown colourway. Anyway, it was a familiar sight in my 1970s life and it was lovely to see that pattern and be reminded.

I check every day to see if you've posted! It is like a present when you do >). I love your beautiful crochet blankets and squares, the colors make me very happy!!! I hope you are feeling well again soon!


Have missed hearing from you but knew you or those you love were having a struggle. Know that I think about you. Take all the time that you need and know that I am here for you. My crocheting has been slow and steady like the turtle and then I burned my thumb on my dominate hand. Well now it is really slow for a few day. Happy Anniversary!


I know it's a decade since the arrival of your blog because I chanced upon it later in the same year whilst seeking solace after the death of my husband. I had always wanted to master the art of crochet but had failed miserably until you 'taught' me! Thanks for all your efforts Luce and I'm so glad that we met. Love, as always - please look after yourself. xx


Bentornata Lucy carissima! Prenditi cura di te! Sei una fantastica fonte d’ispirazione, grazie per tutto quello che fai🧡💛💚💙

Happy birthday and blog anniversary. Taking it slow is perfectly allowed...and necessary. Luckily Spring comes again every year to help us out of the fogs😁.


Let go of expectations Lucy. Things can unfold however they will. We are grateful for whatever you do, and also that you are taking time for yourself.

Oh I have missed you! And so sorry you have been feeling so low. Continue on the 'up' my dear, and take lots of care of yourself. Xxxx

Dawn  Heffernan

Many congratulations Lucy on your 10th Blogiversary.
Your blogs and patterns are inspirational and have certainly given me the crochet bug!
As you are branching out into cross stitching (something I used to do) I have a few items which might be useful to you. I will post them to Coopers Cafe and hope they will be a little thank you for all you do. Dawn H.

Jessica Stride

Gorgeous photos, every one! Hope you have a lovely weekend.x


Great to hear from you and looking forward to seeing what you are about to share. Glad you are starting to feel better. Lynn x


Happy Anniversary Lucy! Your designs inspire me...so beautiful yet comfortable. Sending you healing thoughts and prayers as you recover. Thanks for sharing your lovely pictures and crochet skills. Happy Spring!🌞🌺🌈


Glad you are feeling better. Great photographs and blog post. I have missed you.

Carole Kersh

Glad to hear from you again Lucy. Your pictures on the blog are so pretty. What beautiful colors your flowers are. I hope your energy gets better, I too have a hard time with mine. And sometimes the iron itself makes me feel icky. Anyway, Enjoy your spring. Sending hugs.


Congrats on your blogiversary! It's lovely to see you again Lucy. I know what it's like when energy just isn't there - I often have to adjust my pace and let things be for a while. Isn't it great to feel Spring is on the way! I think the clocks go forward this weekend too.♥


What a wonderful treat to see your blog.missed your happy place.just what I needed when I was recovering from feeling low myself ❤️Roll on spring 🐥

*C*O*N*G*R*A*T*U*L*A*T*I*O*N*S*!* on your 10 year blog-aversary! You've inspired thousands of people to pick up their crochet hook and create colorful and joyful things in their lives and their families lives. What an amazing thing you've done, single-handedly! Yours was the first blog I ever read and you inspired me to start my own blog, which will be going on 7 years in the fall. I'm glad you're getting the medical help to make you feel better. I'm looking forward to seeing your new projects. I count you as a real friend and someone I look up to. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Alison Smith

10 years? Just think of the joy, activity, creativity, friendships and calm you have spread around the world!! Its been life-changing for me, and I’m sure for thousands of others. Bless you Lucy!


Has it really been ten years?! What a lot of color and joy you've brought to so many people in that time. You know, I discovered your blog in 2009 as a young mom of two babies. We lived in the northern woods of Minnesota and because we were just starting out we didn't have very much money...or furniture. And the house felt so empty and I felt lonely staying home with the kids. Reading your blog taught me that I could fill our home with color and projects and joy and appreciation of the little things even if I couldn't fill it with furniture. :) Now we're living in the mountains of Arizona where I homeschool our seven children in the high desert. The house certainly isn't empty anymore! But as I look around this morning I see Lucy influences everywhere. Stone bowls full of colorful yarn, cozy afghans thrown across couches and chairs, several unfinished projects lying around, a cheerful apron, taking ten minutes this morning to enjoy my coffee on the front porch while listening to the birds. Our home wouldn't be the same home if I hadn't been able to pop into yours these past years. Thank you so much, Lucy, from the bottom of my heart!
