Hi Lucy!

I'm new to crochet, and think your page and ideas are so lovely!!!!

I saw this, and thought instantly of my friend who loves Tudor history. I was thinking of making her a blanket of Tudor Roses! ❤ 🌹

Thank you for the inspiration!

Lynn Dee Butler

Hello Lucy! Glad you are feeling better. Like so many others I also take HRT and vitamin D gummies. I need both right now to be balanced be me. HRT is not something I plan to take forever. I just need it for right now. You’ll find your balance and I really appreciate you talking about it. I didn’t realize how many others suffered with this. So Thank You!
On your beautiful cotton granny squares…I think a boxy jacket or a shawl would be just amazing. I’ve been pinning all sorts of inspiration on Pinterest. I think your colors and pattern are the best out there. Can’t wait to read what you plan to do. I gotta go and put an order in for that yarn!

These are beautiful. Maybe you could design a skirt with them. I saw some granny square skirt ideas on Pinterest but the patterns are hard to find so I for one would be keen to make a skirt or a jumper version maybe? Maybe it would be too heavy in cotton but the acrylic could work? In cotton a table runner would probably be my choice. I’ve followed you for years and your patterns were the first ones I learnt to crochet following. Keep up the good work. It’s so appreciated by so many 😊

Hi Lucy! I think I will make a table runner. I need a new splash of color going into autumn. I will be using the Special DK acrylic from the stash of left overs I have. I just found out I will be an Auntie again to a little girl come December...so some fast and furious baby crochet is flying off my hood these days. Also looking forward to seeing how the Cmas Blanket is coming along. Take care, Hugs MO

Beverley

Such pretty floral granny squares Lucy. Looking forward to seeing what you make with them. I need to pick up my hook again!
Hope you have found the right HRT for you, I'm certainly very grateful for mine. Sending bloggy hugs x

Lovely little floral jewel of a granny square. Never made one before as always done stripey blankies but think I’m going to do many more little squishy squares.

🥰 Just started a ‘what we love about attic24’ post on Facebook. Thought you could probably do with hearing some lovely stuff from all over the world 🥰

Hello Lucy, I'm hoping this will bring a smile to you. We had a Zoom get-together with the family, and our only-just 15-yr-old granddaughter showed me that she has taken up crochet with an attempt at creating a round - it looked like a piece of coral - all frilly at the edge, so I linked her to your crochet bag, as the base is in rounds. Then she told me she wanted to make Granny squares - again I linked her to this current post, she's raring to go ! She told me that she finds crochet very therapeutic. Who would have thought? But I'm thrilled that she enjoys it.
Glad to hear you're feeling so much better. Virtual hugs, Val

Crafty Cath

Amazing! Thank you for the pattern download. A coffee on it's way :) Oh golly I have so many projects but I really want to do this one!!! I need to retire now!
p.s. hope you're feeling a bit better x

Ahh I love your floral granny square and it's wonderful that you have so enjoyed creating it with your beautiful colours, I wish I had this ability.
All your creations are on my to do list, I just need more time!
Thank you for sharing with us all it is very much appreciated.

Kim

Beautiful. I just wish I had more time to crochet, I have about 3 projects on the go and still keep buying yarn for new projects. This floral granny square I just have to have a play with..... you are so inspirational. Many thanks for sharing

Kim

How lovely to hear sunshine in your words again. I do hope you realise that you don't owe any of us anything, but you do bring so much joy and light (not to mention colour) into the blogosphere and I miss your voice when it is absent for a while. My problem, not yours, ever. Take care Lucy.

Shirley Ann

Such gorgeous colours!

Eily

I love those colours. Bummer that the Stylecraft Naturals Organic Cotton is so hard to come by in Central Europe. Ordering in the U.K. is not a thing anymore after Brexit. Taxes are too high. 😕

Rosalie J Cronin

Lovely to have a memory quilt on the go using The Flora Granny square in memory of my beautiful mother Flora,who was a keen gardener and adored her flowers every kind..
Thank you for providing the scape for a memory in every stitch..Reflection is essential for self growth.
I am a ever loving fan of Attic24 and Bloglovin' and pinterest by the way always discovering more from the hands of other keen artists.THANKYOU..

I love your blogs so much and I'm so glad you're feeling up to writing again.

Annalisa

Dear Lucy,
I love so much your Yuletide blanket, could you please write a dedicated post that explain how to do it?
Thank you very much!

Christine

The color combos are exquisite!!! What a magnificent Afghan it will be!! I always look forward to your beautiful masterpieces!!

Simon

I really like this! And the yarn looks great too! I much prefer the cotton square to the acrylic one - it just looks so much nicer. I've never tried using a cotton yarn before, so I may have to treat myself at some point!

I gave up on my own design. It soon became apparent that it was not going to look how I imagined, and there really wasn't enough time to spend on it. My bad, maybe next year though. Take care:)

Victoria Margerison

Lovely colours as always Lucy.

I have only just seen your post about HRT and like you I resisted it but when eventually I tried it I became me again.
I was a Ward Sister at the time and from being outgoing, decisive and confident I became anxious, withdrawn and couldn't decide anything! Then of course were physical symptoms flushes, sweats, joint pain, insomnia. You may find it takes time to find the best HRT for you, it is as individual as your hormones are but when you do oh my you feel feel alive again! Everything is crossed for you.

Susan

Lovely Lucy & I think I'll have to dive into some scraps & try one, which may lead to more.(giggle). Glad the mojo has come back to pick up your hook & look forward to seeing more beautiful crochet by you. Take care, stay safe & hugs.

I think a smallish blanket for a small child to drag around and cuddle up to would suit these innocent flowers.

susana giavarini

Wonderful!!!!!I d like to make a table runner please!!! Kisses from Argentina.

Shasta

These are gorgeous! Love the fun colors and square grannies.

Joanne Smith

Beginning to think I had lost my crochet mojo…. Then hey presto it’s back. Thank you Lucy this was a joy to make 😍

Lyn Lewis

What are they called a doorway garland thingy, a Torah is it? Either square or on point? I find your colour combinations so jewel like, I just wish I had that innate skill lol
