About Me

Absolutely gorgeous! I'm an autumn lover. I knit some oak leaves and spread them all over my serving table which has my Polish pottery on it.
Your blog brings true JOY to my day!
Lovin' the Autumn from Maine, USA
Happy Leaf Peeping!!!


You jammy thing! I walked past and resisted the dahlias this morning and said to the flowerman a couple of weeks ago that I wished there were mixed bunches. Gorgeous, gorgeous Autumn treasures you have there though Lucy! actually that reminds me, my bag is still full of acorns from Bolton Abbey. I should probably empty that! xxxx

Sara Jenkins

Looks gorgeous - you are so cleaver with colour.
Have a great weekend. x

Linda Jones

Such a lovely assortment of autumnal colour....look forward to the ta-dah moment when the wreath is complete and seeing progress pics .......have a lovely weekend xx


Your tale of buying flowers on the way home on Fridays reminds me of our Friday flower ritual. Every Friday morning my husband takes a walk out to the countryside near our house, before starting work. On his route is a woman with the most magnificent garden who sells the most glorious bouquets of flowers, on the honour system. So every Friday he brings me home a new bunch. Except today. For the first time there were no flowers because of all the frost lately. I felt quite bereft. Now I have to wait till spring. Enjoy your longer growing season. I will have to get my Friday flower gazing through you, now.


Such gorgeous colour, I've been working on my winter time wreath today, making small silver matallic leaves and some mistletoe. I look forward to seeing you wreath, I'm sure it'll be gorgeous.

I love a vase full of mismatch flowers. When I saw your tray of Autumn, I immediately thought of childhood leaf gathering expeditions! lol I have a work in progress fall wreath already up, I just add to it as I go. Already, it has Fall leaves, some sunflowers and your acorns reminded me I made some last year, need to add those.lol Happy weekend challenge!


What colors so beautiful! Fall is beautiful!
I like your blog! always with a thousand colors!
I also have this precious book of flowers!
Thanks for sharing, I never tire of seeing your photos!
Kisses from Catalonia!


You have a fantastic idea, and so much beautiful nature to inspire you. Here in Florida it is hot and humid still, we will not have leaves that change, but will see acorns and pine cones, and hopefully a shift in the weather. Thank you for your beautiful inspiration.
hugs to you,

Rachael Iddon

I am so jealous of your cheap supply of flowers. The best I can do is the reduced section at the supermarket. I got some autumn coloured gerberas and small lily things. They look so bright and cheery. My thoughts are turning to making leaves too and I've been scouring pinterest for patterns. maybe I should go and buy that book. I've got the snowflake one and love it. Looking forward to seeing the finished article.

Autumn is my favorite season: the colors, the temperatures, the anticipation... It's all good. Taking inspiration from you and hoping to make a wreath this year.

Teresa Kasner

Oh boy.. can't wait to see your Autumn wreath! I found some acorns under our pin oak tree today.. you should pop over and see my closeups of them, I added them to my post today. And you can see my two little grandsons that are living with us now. Enjoy your hooky creating! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Love your wreathes - and the season. Beautiful photographs - thank you for sharing.


Sure it will turn out utterly gorgeous as usual 😀Happy Hooking

Joanne Morrow

Absolutely love all your wreathes. All the beautiful colours you crochet everything in just makes everything jump out at you and just brings such joy. Thank you!! Love your site!!


Hi Lucy, can't wait to see your Autumn wreath...I'm sure it will be stunning. I like the effect you get with two strands of yarn..it adds a sort of tweedy look , if you know what I mean.
Happy hooking without a deadline :0)

p.s. crab apples would look great too maybe ?

June pirie

Just love the autumn leaves and your autumn yarns. Please let me know brand and shades. Look forward as always to your next instalment from Attic24. X


Oh, Lucy, what a great project! I have 2 lovely blankets on the hook, so I don't think I'm going to be making a wreath anytime soon, but someday I would love to!! I know yours will be gorgeous. I LOVE LOVE LOVE autumn! The colors, the coziness of sweaters/scarves/blankets/warm houses, the incredible colors of the leaves, the harvest, Thanksgiving- oh I just adore it all! Your pictures are lovely, thank you for sharing them!


Such lovely bright colours!
Your dahlias are beautiful, what I lovely range you've got there.
I've also been eyeing up all the leaves and Autumny bits and quite often come home with a pocket full of conkers and pretty leaves
I'm excited to see your Autumn wreath, sounds like a more relaxed project than your recent crochet endeavours!

Lynne Gill

Beautiful "nature table" collections, and of course, you had to make a yarn version! Excellent!


Autumn...my favorite season of the year. All my crochet projects recently have been inspired by the fall colors...deep reds, oranges, yellows, purples, greens...I'm lovin' it! Working on some autumnal neck warmers. I can crochet up one an evening, so they are very satisfying to make. I'm excited to see your "ta-duh" on the fall wreath. Hugs, MO

Joanne Retzler

What a beautiful bunch of posies and leaves. Makes me jealous. I used to walk in the woods and collect things all of the time when I lived in Vermont, but here in Arizona, there is not much to collect, unless we go north a bit, which I am trying to get my hubby to do. Soon, I hope. But I have been enjoying reading your blog, especially all your Yardale stories, and have much enjoyed that. Thanks. xxoo

Jacqueline Farrow

My favourite time of year in England. We had a holiday there especially to see the colours 2 years ago but because it was a late summer the leaves had not changed colour till we were heading home. Lovely blog, thank you.

Jacqueline Farrow

Oh forgot to say I'm in Perth Western Australia. We have some trees around that change in our Autumn but not enough. Tasmania is very much like England with Autumn, we were there in the Autumn it was lovely. There were Acorns but we were not allowed to bring any back home.
