Yes it is, but the question is, is your home prepared for it? There are some adjustments to be made for the change of season. It's not that much but it is quite important because it highly affects the house and the people living in it.


What a beautiful house with all those lovely colours :)Your work is such an inspiration for me!

Lucy your blog is lovely.You have inspired me to start crocheting myself. I can't wait for further updates.Im really interested to see your latest project.


Ohhhh your home is so bright and cheery. Mine is the polar opposite, literally I'm an Aussie and secondly, it's all white but I love all your crochet just the same. You even inspire me to crochet in colour! Which I really enjoy. I'm going to try the balls. Although I'm not quite sure I'll get them right. You make all crochet look easy. Thanks for the pattern.

Your delicious use of color is inspiring me! I'm just learning to crochet and I want to make a ripple afgan, then learn granny squares!


Can you tell me where to buy those happy pills, I want some, too! Your blog is such an inspiration.


amazing photos, it really show winter and the beautiful colors in it, the views are so differents here in Mexico, your scarf, hat and wrist warmers beautiful too. greetings.

I always love your beautiful pictures and stories! This winter we are in sunny Arizona so I won't be sitting by a fire like I usually do in the evenings with a cup of hot tea or cocoa. Although I still like to have a hot beverage sometimes in the evening here. It's just such a relaxing way to end the day.


It's always a joy to read your posts. You have a wonderful way with words, and such an upbeat nature. And your home looks so comfy cozy, even though the temps outside are so cold. Here on the west coast of Vancouver Island, temps are not to bad, 8-10 Celsius during the day, but lots of strong winds. This morning when I got up at 7 a.m., the moon was still shining. A very pleasant surprise. Watching for your completed wreath, I know it will be lovely.


Lucy, it is pleasant to look at your photos, every time I seem to get into a friend's house so I'm familiar corners of your home!


I too, love the indoor coziness of winter. I'm brewing up some coffee right now, and I'm still in my flannel nightie and wool socks. I'll be lighting candles soon, as it's overcast outside and a bit gloomy in here.
I really enjoyed your pics of the icy canal in rosy gold light. And as always, I love your colorful pics of your handmade home decor. Stay warm!


Great great pictures:)))) In Poland winter is different. Now, we have lots of snow and it's snowing all day. I wish the same in Christmas Time:)))))


Lucy, I felt so good reading your post and seeing the pictures...cozy is something I long for so much! My winter here is not as cozy as it has to be. It is cold in the house, and we save ourselves only with a heater and all possible warm clothes and shawls on...i mean, it still feels good when I beside my husband, but otherwise, I wish we had better conditions to feel good in winter.
take care and enjoy your days in the Attic :) With all warmness from India, Anna.

Since you started talking about pom poms I have been seeing them everywhere.


It is in the 30's F. here is South Dakota. We had a little snow yesterday.


It made me feel warmer reading your post and looking at the gorgeous colours in the pictures. Sat here in a friend's oversized cable knit purple chunky cardi under a crochetd blanket.


reading your post made me too feel the beauty, warmth & coziness...I am totally in love with ur crochet wonders & ur blog...u r equally good at expressing thru writing..

Really enjoyed the stroll with you Lucy,thanks for 'taking' me along.Love the canal and boats,I dream of living in one of those,then I think about my garden and well it's a nice dream..I had a hooky morning also.Working on Christmas presents,chop-chop time!I usually end my day with hook in hand,snuggled under some hooky blanket,crocheting while we chat and watch a little t.v.A perfect end to the day...hook in hand :)Have a toasty evening!


what stunning pictures of the sky! your sunrise and sunset times are a little different to ours down here in the south of england but we are also having some wonderful skies at the moment. We are close to the sea and last sunday, a lovely cold but clear day, walked to the beach as the sun was coming up, there was actually frost on the beach, and steam coming off the sea, very strange!


Now, where have I seen that basket?!!

I just finished a Christmas present for my granddaughter. Earlier this year we dyed 100% wool yarn with KoolAid. The project was simple and the colors vibrant. Then I used the dyed yarn to make your crochet bag. Thank you for those directions! They were easy to follow and the bag is so beautiful that I might dye some more yarn and make one for myself :)


Hi Lucy,

I am trying to subscribe to your blog but the subscription link doesn't work (wah!) I just stumbled into your attic while looking for a instructions on how to join granny squares and love the bright colors, great patterns, warm homeyness.

I was a knitter until I began having wrist problems. Crochet seems to work better if I just do things like granny squares that have little weight. I was eyeing your summer granny garden square instructions and wonder if you have a sense of how many skeins of the DK yarn it takes? I know you probably just use whatever you have, but for us beginners it's helpful to have a ballpark. Thank you!


I love this expression Simply Being Home; I seriously chuckled when I read it. To be honest, I feel the same. I love summer and love being outdoors, and since summer and nice, dry weather is very short here in Vancouver, BC I do my best to enjoy every little bit of it. So I keep going out with my kids, doing things outdoors, spending a lot of time and energy organizing our next adventure. But when fall comes, rain starts and days star getting shorter, I almost feel relieved (although, do not get me wrong, I hate rain and by the end of January I get seriously depresses for the lack of sunshine). Especially when the winter starts and we turn the heat on, (as we do not have a fireplace), I make my kids some hot cocoa and maybe a coffee for me, we watch TV, read, I knit or crochet while they play with their favorite devices. And just like you said, Simply Bing Home feels fantastic, just the right thing to do. Especially if we do not have anything to do, plus with the Christmas tree all dressed up and lit….mmmm…pure pleasure.


Beautiful photos! Thank you so much for sharing. I'm enjoying eating gingerbread cookies and knitting as it get colder!

Thank you for the tour of your town and your home and how you enjoy your days. Your post brought me a sigh of peace as well!

I wish we had a fire too! I like your appreciation for the shorter days, it's something that I need to learn too. :)
