I especially love the flowers too.


I love the colorful cushion I 2ant to try to crochet it. Pattern available? I also love bright colors.

OMG! Lucy my heart certainly did skip a beat. A box of scrummyness indeed. I'll let you into a little secret ... I have one of these very boxes squirrelled away in my ever-growing stash. You have given me inspiration as to what to do with those dinky balls of delight.
I would also love to know when, where and if you are planning any other retreats ... my idea of bliss.


Hi Lucy, do you do crochet retreats in the beautiful Yorkshire Dale's. So much of your inspiration comes from your local landscape. Some of us don't like flying, but would love to come on a retreat.


Dear Lucy, Yes, Yes and Yes my heart skipped a beat when I saw that box of colour too. How I wish I could of been in France with you for this retreat. I loved seeing your photos...definitely on the bucket list..or you could come to Australia for one. my local wool shop is called Yummy Yarn in Dubbo and they are always having wonderful classes...think you need an australian holiday for sure


That is a real jewel box of colours Lucy.Your cushion cover is beautiful and the additional flowers and decorations are perfect on it.

I know nothing about crocheting but just those colors and the fun size of those skeins was enough to make me giddy. And then to see what you have created. What joy!! The flowers add a bit more magic to the already whimsical fun of this pillow. Absolutely adorable.


I love those two rounds that make up your cushion. Terrific color combinations. The retreat in France sounds like a dream. Nice!


Lovely cushion, and oh my, the boxes of yarn are an absolute delight. I know exactly what you mean about the excitement of seeing all the colours laid out like that. I could play with them for hours! Lovely to see the cushion photographed in France as well, it looks just right there. CJ Xx


For my money, acrylic is my favorite fiber. It maintains its color and doesn't fade; it is reasonably priced; it is washable and dryable; it doesn't require blocking; it doesn't itch; and, it is fairly lightweight. Wool, on the other hand, is always itchy; heavy; requires blocking; often fades; and, it can be quite spendy. Not so crazy about 100% cotton either as it has a tendency to stretch out of shape easily and it's hard on my hands. I do like cotton blends though. Of course, I tend to make practical things, like afghans; but, even if I made garments, I wouldn't choose cotton or wool, I would lean more toward silk, or cashmere, or alpaca -- but my, those fibers are breath-takingly expensive! Wool and cotton are fine when woven, but not my favorite choice for knitted/crocheted items. I would probably go with wool if I were making a rug (which is actually on my list of things to make). By and large though, my first choice is acrylic. My two cents, for what its worth.

L❤️VED the retreat, you, all our ladies the cushion... Carcassonne was a brilliant location. Enjoy your home-time. Hugs 🫂


Ooooh what a gorgeous box of colours and such dinky little balls of yarn.. I love the cushion it’s really pretty and the flowers just add that extra touch. The retreat sounds fabulous and it would be amazing to go on one, such picturesque places too. Have a great weekend, we’ve got our half term here next week so am really looking forward to the rest!! Take care love and hugs xxx ☺️🥰


What a stunning cushion! The colours and design are just beautiful :)


OH GOSH! What I wouldn't give to have all those yarns with me right now :) Beautiful color compositions as always!


Gorgeous, but acrylic!! In this day and age? I know price, but still.

I love this cushion, it's such happy colours and the flowers are gorgeous :) xx


Love it all! Thankyou so much for the amazing pattern, the yarn, the teaching, the company and the trip in general, I had a blast :)


Oooh that yarn is lovely! I don’t think I could bear to open it though. It’s like having a box of coloured pencils and not knowing which to use first. (I tell you this from experience!)
Your retreat sounds wonderful Lucy, I’d be interested to know the details of something similar here at home if you are planning anything.
Thanks for your lovely blog, all the best to you and your family.


Hedy; crocheting a circle is easy,honestly. Just look it up online - 'Ophelia talks' on youtube has an excellent tutorial for making the perfect circle. Everything about crochet is out there ready to be learnt, just go find it or have a play yourself.


Wow beautiful!
Yes afraid one of those boxes of yarn would be like an art pieve to put on my wall hehehe


Such a lovely cushion. The box of colours makes me want one just so that I can look at it. It would make a great Christmas present.


I love your cushion - pattern and colours. France sounds a great location. However, Australia would also be good for a few classes too!!!!!


I love this..beautiful colours. Would love details of your retreats please.


I really want to make a round cushion but my only attempt at a mandala/cushion front turned out all ruffly, and I really don't think it would work:( I prefer the colours on the back of your cushion because they zing a bit more than the ones on the front. Looking forward to the next post!!


This cushion is just lovely! What a gorgeous project for your participants to create!
