What a beautiful walk! And cozy reward afterward. Happy New Year to all of you.


Happy new year to you and all the people you cherish. Thank you for sharing the photos of your first walk of the year with us.


What a beautiful walk! We have tons of snow here in Canada but managed a walk last night with the warmer temps and again today in the sunshine.

Happy New Year! Can't wait to see your colorful creations this year. I'm just learning to knit and crochet. So far, just a plain scarf. :)

Thank you for all your help! Love seeing the wonderfully rich colorful photos! I was wondering if at some point in the coming year if you have time, if you could share any tips you have for keeping the hands/wrists/arms in shape and from hurting when doing a lot of crochet... I am working in small amounts lately and wondering if there are any stretches you do or anything you have found that helps build the muscles etc so that I can crochet for longer periods without feeling the fatigue and aching. :O)

Happy New Year Lucy to you and your family!
(((HUGS))) Susanne :)


WOW! You live in a beautiful place. Gorgeous pictures. Happy New Year to you and yours. :)


Don't you love it when an afghan is large enough to snuggle under WHILE you are still working on it? *grin*
I'm staring at yarn in my bag that will be a A) scarf & a B) a ripple afghan
I also scored some Bernat christmas yarn at 50% off yesterday! (it's a good thing that we have a year until next Christmas ;-) )
I'm looking forward to your posts/pics in 2013! Happy New Year to you and yours!


Love, love, love!!!! Happy 2013 to you and yiur family, Lucy, and many many thanks for your amazing ability to motivate me!! <3 Julie in Australia xoxoxox


My owl cushion has lost both eyes too!


What a cozy afternoon. :)
Happiest of New Years to you and your family.

Lucy, Happy New Year! I wanted to thank you for your tutorials, especially the crocheted bag pattern. My 9 year old granddaughter and I dyed numerous skeins of 100% wool using Kool-Aid and Wilton icing color. It was simple and so much fun. Then I used the beautiful yarn to make the crocheted bag for her for Christmas. It was so much fun working with the brilliant colors and the soft wool. Several of the skeins were dyed variagated and I think this added a lot to the look of the bag. Thank you, again, for making this world just a little bit more colorful, warm, and cozy :) I think I may dye some more yarn and make one for myself :)


Beautiful scenery pictures and crochet blanky's.
Will be back to visit to hear about coolness as going to be mega hot here on friday


What a great fossil find from little man :) He must be so proud!

I love your blog and I look forward to visiting it often in the new year of 2013. I have just recently joined blogland and I am having a blast.

You have inspired me to make my very own "first" ripple blanket and I am making it my creative goal for 2013. Wish me luck!

Happy New Year and may it be all that you wish for!

Hi Lucy. I would really like to crochet a blanket this year. I can crochet although I haven't done for about 30 years - yikes! I don't really fancy doing a granny one, but do fancy the ripple blanket. Is it a good one to me to attempt.or am jumping the gun a little?what would you recommend.

Mandy Adams . Grimsby,


What a beautiful day you had! Thank you for sharing it with us. Happy New Year to you and your family, Lucy!


Happy New Year Lucy I hope it brings you and your loved ones bountiful blessings. We walked today too, a beautiful warm, sunny summers day here in Melbourne. My youngest also enjoyed throwing pebbles into the water and the resultant splashing. We stopped for ice-creams at the beach cafe and finished it off with a tryout of the newly renovated playground. Perfect.

Wishing you and your family a happy New Year. I too am crocheting projects started last year. You seem to have a wonderful knack of working things out. I love the ripple afghans and am trying to figure out to to add baubles or popcorn stitches to it. Would you have any suggestions for me? This is my project for 2013. I have to admit I am a little confused. Being that the ripple consists of decreases and multiples, I'm not sure where to begin. Trial and error I guess. Thanks! I love your blog!


That rainbow is definitely a good omen for you Lucy.


Happy new year Lucy.
Thanks for all your inspiration and amazing tutorials. I love seeing what you've been up to


Lucy, you are just lovely. I fully appreciate that you are a glass half full girl....and all the color you bring into our lives. I smiled when I saw those colorful rain boots! It's the little things that add up lot lots of joyful moments. Happy new year!


Happy New Year ! Enjoyed your trip to the countryside...lovely pictures.


Happy New Year! Your little corner of England looks absolutely engrossing, and (as a crafter who myself lived for several years in Scotland) I wish I could walk to that little pebbled beach and pick myself out a fossil, then return home to a warm cuppa and a cozy nest to crochet from... a wonderful first day of this new year!


Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family, Lucy! I am looking forward to following your blog for another year. :)

Thanks for your blog, Lucy, your photos delight the senses. Your prose is charming and educated, whimsical and enchanting.

It's been a hooky time for me here in the SF Bay area where we've had bracing cold windy days. I love snuggling in and finding you come up when I click Next on my Bookmark Bar.

Happy 2013, may each step we take lead the way to Peace.


Hi Lucy, it looks lovely and cold where you are. We have had LOTS of rain and it is very hot and humid. I also have projects left over from 2012 ( your lovely bag as well as two felt ornaments) that I promised I would finish before starting anything new. Good luck with your balnket and Happy New year
