Searching through the archives I came across this lovely post. Sometimes it can feel as though we are constantly looking to the next thing and not enjoying being in the now - what a lovely example.(And a bonus - it features one of my favourite cookbooks!)


Well, Lucy. The breakfast, the blanket and all that lies inbetween. Bliss! I had to work, so reading this was like enjoying a missed weekend! Thank you!
(I love the pj picture!)


What a gorgeous post. Full of lovely photo's and so comforting goodness. Thanks for sharing your weekend, it really cheered me up! x


Hi lucy,
Thankyou for your lovely comment on my blog (flourish and blossom), i love your house too, especially your view.....so so lucky, i totally agree with that weekend feeling !! and please do open up an etsy shop, you are very talented.....

P.s. i have been a secret reader of your blog for quite a while but never leave a comment, i am always in such a rush, so here you go my first !!


What a lovely family you are. I wish I lived near you, I want to be your friend!!


Lucy, i found your blog some time ago whilst looking for crochet patterns - and would like to take this opportunity to tell you how much i am enjoying reading it regularly!

I am a beginner hooker, and have only made a couple of baby granny blankets. Your blog however, inspired me to much higher goals! I have now learned how to do several different edgings and have embarked on your bag (whilst struggling with my mental state which insists i should be doing a hexagon and ripple blanket at the same time!). I'm using Debbie Bliss Rialto Aran & a 4mm hook, and am halfway up the sides in various blues, greens and browns. The wool is beautiful - and i'm really glad i searched it out after you told us about it. I'll send you a link to a picture when its all finished so you can feel proud of yourself for writing out some wonderful patterns and being generous enough to share them. Not to mention providing inspiration to the hooker community...


Yes, cook pancakes for sunday breakfast is great and bake a cake for the afternoon is also a great pleasure for me (and my family of course !!).
At each time I read your blog I say to myself : I must learn crochet !!
Thank you to share with us :-)


Oh thankyou Lovely Lucy for sharing your perfect weekend. I enjoyed every moment of your post.

Dear Lucy,
You are truly amazing. I only found your blog today as I was searching for how to crochet Hexagons. Wow! You are a lovely writer as well as a very creative and energetic person. Although I am an American I have always felt a deep kinship to and longing for Britain. I've visited a couple of times and as soon as my feet touch the ground I feel I belong. Thank you for your lovely writing that fills me with love for your language and homeland. Sincerely, Gretchen. PS, my husband's nickname for me is Lucy..

oh I'm so envious still of your beautiful crocheted blanket, how I wish I could crochet.


What a lovely weekend you had, the blanket's looking good... can't wait to see the finished pictures. Your socks/tights are lovely.... where did you get them??? :)


What a lovely weekend you had, thanks for sharing your wonderful pictures.


Oh it just sounds lovely. I love that Saturday day morning feeling too. Blissful. We had an equally perfect weekend, buying our tree, sitting in the weak sunshine in a country pub drinking mulled wine to keep us warm and eating the most amazing roast lamb cooked by my lovely hubbie to be. Your crochet blanket is looking beautiful. I'm loving the colours you've used. Look forward to seeing the finished article. Have an equally lovely week and hope you manage to start to feel Christmassy soon.


sounds like a brilliant weekend!

elizabeth of course

What a LOVELY weekend! I'm thoroughly jealous as mine was chaotic and decidedly unfulfilling.
I cannot wait to see that hex blanket completed! The colours are so wonderful!

what a lovely weekend Lucy...I love your blankets...I once went on course at Rowan to learn ho to crotchet ...but w never learned how to make beautiful blankets...I dont suppose you have a patten.......
love and hugs H


And that was One Extended Perfect Post -- I savored every bit of it. Thank you! (Chuckling that the inflatable hammers are a part of festivities over there, too...)


Sounds like a fabby weekend all round. I love getting up and baking and realising I'm still in my pjs around lunchtime! I'm in love with that big blowsy pink rosy wallpaper in the Country Homes & Interiors mag. Haven't got a wall for it, unfortunately. Look forward to the big hex reveal...

Looks and sounds blissful to me.


Now that is a perfect weekend! My perfect weekend would involve me doing lots of crafting................... but as that is a solitary occupation, and doesn't involve Hugo's participation, it's not something I really allow myself to do................ so the perfect weekend alternative for me is a long walk with Hubby and the doggies, and a picnic on top of a hill, with noone else around.................... then returning home to the fire side, a cup of steaming tea, the weekend papers............... and if, If i'm sneaky, a bit of knitting!!!!!!!!
Gosh I know what you mean Lucy, about the christmas spirit! It's eluding me at the moment................. and I'm normally the first one to get the decorations up.............. I'd have them up in november if I was allowed!!!!!!!!


it sounds perfect!


I am reading this post just smiling and smiling. It is as if I have picked up my very favorite comfy, cozy book that I love to read over and over from cover to cover while still in my jammies and drinking my tea covered in a patchwork quilt. I LOVED this post today, especially, Lucy. It made me feel happy, peaceful and even a little nostalgic for a little sister. I have five brothers and always wished for a beloved sister. You would make a perfect little sister. You are such a treasure of sweetness and delight. Really!!


We had a similar weekend, busy, yet relaxed.Saturday has to be my favourite day!



Hi Lucy, aaww, that was lovely. What a lovely weekend. I and my family had a lovely weekend too, funnily we went to the town near my parents' farm on Friday evening where they had the same sort of fair: indoor pannier market full of lovely stalls, outside the square was closed of traffic and there were funfair type stalls, carol singing and a childrens procession with their lanterns. Very similar! Kathyx
