Your embroidery is beautiful. What a wonderful Spring decoration.


OMG Lucy it's so beautiful!! I love how you matching the colors to make beautiful and delicate jobs with such sensitivity! xx

You did a wonderful job! I love that you feel the little wibbles make something handmade and unique. That’s how I feel too. Major “Oops” require a redo, but individual characteristics make it special. I am in love with the colors you surround yourself with. They are so uplifting and Happy! That’s what drew me to your blog way back when. I always associated colors from the 70s, Brown, Orange, olive green and baby pastels with crochet. Your blog change my perception. It opened up a whole new world. Knitting books were being produced in beautiful modern colors but it was much later that craft stores started carrying crochet books with patterns made in rainbows of gorgeous colors. Thank You for Color!

Wow, that stitchery project turned out bee-YOU-tee-full! I can't wait to see the bee done and it all framed and up with the others. Our lilacs are in bloom, we just got back from a trip to Victoria BC for my birthday - we had tea at the Empress Hotel! I posted lots of photos on my blog. Tomorrow I will post the photos of the Butchart Gardens - you would not believe how amazing their sunken garden is. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Well done Lucy! I find these things come back to you like riding a bike. I changed mine a bit as you know, and as a beekeeper I had to change my bee to a honey bee. : ) Have a fab day!xxxxxxxxx


Your color blending with long and short stitches is perfect! Your back stitching is so even, the whole project is beautiful. Well done, you. The last time we were in England we got to go on a tour of The Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court Palace. Your beautiful stitching reminds me of pieces we saw there. Thank you for sharing, I can't wait to see the bee.


Absolutely lovely! I too love to embroider~and cross-stitch. You did a beautiful job. You are a multi-talented lady!


You are so talented! All of your work is so inspiring:)

Well done Lucy on a beautiful piece of embroidery. Looking forward to your being confident enough to make your own designs too.
One year I embroidered a pillowcase with things that reminded me of a holiday and days out. Gorse flowers, lavender & butterfly for a stay at Gorse Farm in my camper van with lavender & butterflies under my windows. Dreaming spires for time in Oxford. Sure you get the idea and those beautiful houses in Brugge would look beautiful embroidered.


You've done a lovely job! thanks for sharing how you did one stitch at the time, it's fantastic to see how your embroidery came up to life!

Oh it's utterly lovely xxx It will look smahing with a bumble bee.


Beautiful neat workmanship Lucy. Embroidery isn't as relaxing as crochet I find, so I don't often do it these days, but looking at your post has me wanting to do some needlework again.


Clever you, it's lovely, you've really made an amazing job of it. The colour blending is brilliant, and I love the ranunculus, they're just right. All the different textures are so cleverly done. I remember learning a little embroidery from a very talented neighbour when I was a child, I wish I had the opportunity now in fact. I did enjoy it, but I think I would really appreciate her more now. CJ xx


Lovely embroidery and can't wait to see the bee.


Lovely💖 You’ve done a fantastic job! I’ve been doing a bit of Redwork embroidery recently after doing a workshop at Xmas, which was fun, but I was itching to “go rogue” and add some other colours🤣

You have done a lovely job Lucy, what lovely hobbies we have. I have just finished my version of your Woodland. Have it up on my Instagram if you have a chance to look carocraft20. Raining here today in NZ , a good time for handcraft !! Love keeping in touch with all you do, enjoyed the Bruges time you all had,,


Well done Lucy it’s beautiful, I’m doing this too and have just made the big flower to be honest it looks a bit of a mess and no where near as perfect as yours but I’m going to stick with it and finish it off. I don’t mind that it’s not perfect it’s my first embroidery attempt so getting it finished will be an achievement in itself, although crochet is my first passion it’s always nice to try something different for a change. :) x

Gillian Roe

Utter gorgeousness! Your colour blending looks lovely from where I'm sitting and reminds me how much further I need to go with my own embroidery skills. I think I have to agree with you though and say that crochet always wins for the ultimate in relaxing creativity - with gardening and cross stitch following closely behind. xx
