I've taken up crochet because I broke my ankle in January and have had some serious couch time - crochet projects here we come.

You site has been my go to site for all - with perhaps a few exceptions.

My first big project was a wreath and I've had a fabulous time creating ... and now my daughter's into it too! How perfect is that and it's all due to you a very big THANK YOU!!

I finally got the chance to sit down and have a go at it!!! It looks amazing!!!! Thanks again for sharing it!!!! Love from Argentina!


Hi, Lucy!

Thanks for the inspiration you give us.
I bought the Simple Crochet issue with your Scandi Christmas Bird kit and finished it in the first minites of the New Year. I am a newbie in crocheting and was very pleased with the clear instructions and the result - the little bird, a piece of joy.

A wish you all the best in 2015.

Take care,

Rita alias Fidike


Thank you Lucy for sharing your lovely ideas and patterns. I've already made a dozen of bowerbirds, and have learned the pattern by heart :) It's super lovely!


Oh my!!! I totally came to see if you had done the bower bird tutorial or if you were going to keep that one for yourself ;) and here it is!!!! I LITERALLY squealed & dropped my Xbox controller & a fuzzy warm glow came over me & I said "my crochet funk IS OVER!!!!" :) Wow, this is a great tut Lucy, as ALWAYS.. Impeccable tutorial that even a beginner could achieve :) Well done you .. I'm just loving having you pop up in my crochet mags. I'm like yeah .. That's my Lucy heehee. Well THANKYOU SOOOO much for this, I just about DIED when I first saw it, there were many people TRYING to replicate it but I wanted to be patient & see if you would do yours. Beautiful. Thanks for making me so happy today .. I needed it badly. You're a star Lucy.


Hello Lucy

It makes for so long that I want to tell you thank you! Thank you for your colored ideas! Thank you for your tutoriels! Thank you for your magnificent photos! But my English is so bad....
All your ideas tempt me and finally I began with the natural bower bird version Nature tropical.
I do not know if you wish to see the realizations which you inspire but my bird is visible here:http://mamieminette.canalblog.com/tag/bower%20bird
Thank you again and still I am now going to pay you a coffee, want you?
best regards

Lucy, you are a sweet and talented young woman! How generous you are to share with all of your followers on the blog. Thank you soooooo much. I was so delighted to read every word of the tutorial and cannot wait to gety hands on some yarn to start making bower birds for my Christmas tree and to make some fory daughters for Christmas! Here in the good ol' US of A, we have plenty of supplies but I'd rather go thru your links to purchase. I hope you get paid for the referrals! Again, thank you for sharing.


Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful pattern, your generosity knows no bounds! I have been struggling with an idea for a wedding present for a colleague at work, and know she will love this, particularly as we call them "the love birds". I really enjoy reading your blog, I am a Yorkshire girl and moved away from home 5 years ago - I do get terribly homesick when I see your beautiful pictures, particularly your back yard. I miss the stone architecture.
Thank you so much for bringing colour into our lives!


I absolutely love your tutorials.
Thank you

Hi lucy. I live really so far. I'm from argentina and I have finnished one bird just now. It is really easy to do with your tutorials. Now I'll do them as a gift for my daughter holly communion. Thank you. Mil gracias


Thanks so much Lucy. Your patterns are far and away the most do-able and easy to follow. You have a fantastic talent. Note to self... don't try your first bower bird using the lovely Rowan silk tweed your son gave you for your birthday. It looks great now, but it was so hard to keep track of the stitches! Thanks again, have a wee coffee and cake on me. Caroline xxx


Lucy, thank you for sharing this bird. I really appreciate how much people do not retain their knowledge. Thank you. You brought happiness in my heart with this tutorial. I'm from Brazil, South America and I have followed your blog via Google Translator ... hahaha Hug


Thanks a lot for this tutorial to you, Lucy, and your husband. What a great job that you both do.
I´ve just finished my first bird, I´mglad, glad glad!!!!!
