hello lucy, i am going nuts, because i cannot crochet or knit! i had a stroke in 2004. it left me with an inoperable hand/arm and leg. i have been searching the web for a device to knit or crochet. do you have a suggestion?


This pillow is fantastic. It makes me so happy looking at the beautiful colors. I'm looking at the front granny square pattern. Do you have a tutorial for that somewhere? It looks like you joined the squares as you worked them right? I just love that particular granny square and would love to reproduce the front of the cushion if you have any tips. Your blog brings a splash of color and joy to life so thanks!


Your cushion is wonderfull, really. And your tutorial is really clear and great. Fantastic idea! Thanks for your generosity.
Un grand merci.

How do you make the squares that are pictured in this project. I am fascinated with your site. it is amazing. Im just beginning and your tutorials are soo helpful.


extraordinary work I loved your creativity.


Hi Lucy

I love love love your blog, it makes me all smiley and happy, I found it recently and have gone back and read the previous year of posts. Reading through them all makes me feel so warm and cosy I'm tempted to start my own blog - such has been your inspiration! I adore your beautiful blankets and cushions in your rainbow hues. I have only started crocheting this year and I am loving it. I am currently finishing off a crocheted owl hot water bottle cover but stumped with how to best crochet the button hole loops on to the side. Your button tutorial will work perfectly for this.

thank you , thank you, (thank you)

I just found this blog and just love it. Thanks for all the information, I plan on doing some wonderful projects found here.


This is such a beautiful project and a wonderful way of recycling old jumpers. Thank you. You're so generous with your time that I feel rude asking a question, but here goes... With the smaller rectangle that you cut from the sleeve, do you do anything to the cut edge that the buttons will be placed on before zigzagging through both pieces? Sorry, I'm a beginner prone to making mistakes! Vera, Sydney


Wow that is a great idea, I have been following your blog for a while and love to check in for a creative fix. You never dissapoint. Keep up the good work.


Lucy - Thanks so much for the cushion tutorial. How generous of you to share it. And your cushion looks wonderful.


Thank you so much for sharing! I had been wanting to know how you made your pretty cushions. One more thing for my crafty to do list.


fantastic! thank you so much Lucy, I've wondered what method you've used for assembling your scrumptious cushions... now itching to get out to the charity shops to find a suitable jumper myself! xxx


Thank you! You have written it out very clearly, even for a beginner like me. I just love your ideas!

Hi Lucy, Love the way you walk us through the steps! Very understandable...what do you use for the pillow part inside. Is it premake or do you make a stuffing?!Thanks in advance. Greetings from Vermont,USA
