Lucy, Congratulations on your blog is fantastic, it is difficult to see as many photos as beautiful and wonderful colors together, and found it here ... I love it! (Translated by Google)


Have noticed you haven't posted since Thurs so hope you are all right. Sending get well wishes just in case.


The best bit about this morning was the fact that I haven't been near a computer for days and had 2 posts to read on your blog and such long posts!!I wish I could come to coffee and join your crochet group but I fear Oxford is just a little too far. Love the house - such clever people out there. Lx


How about this gorgeous handmade house. Of course, it's highly likely that you already know of this group. But if not, enjoy.

G'day Lucy
Ohh how I would love to join your for your Thursday Coffee Stitch & Natter - would be so much fun ... must say I love the last paragraph - as me Dad would say 'Warms to cockles of me'art'... I say Go Girl Go ... OOroo ... Bethel of Bethania


I am so in love with your stuff, you have so much talent thank you so much for sharing.....


Hi Lucy
How fun for you to have your Thursday cafe mornings. I am a quilter so if I tried to bring a long my work I would have to take up three tables! I just love coming to visit because of all the wonderful color! I did a grany square afghan back in the 70s and didn;t like crochet but looking at all the wonderful things you make is whetting my appetite to maybe try it again!
hugs, Rhondi


That little house is exquisite! Your Thursday cafe stitchy sessions sound, well, just heaven.

Hmm, I do love to feast my eyes on that crochet bag of yours. I'm hoping that a certain shop, when it opens, might, ahem, stock such things. Here's dreaming...


I LOVE the colors you work with. Do you order online? I would love to start a blanket in such vibrant colors but live out in the middle of no where. Just generic craft shops with not much of a selection. Can you suggest somewhere online that I could shop?
Many thanks for your help!

What a lovely blog...followed the link from Nest and am so glad! Love all the colors and combinations of patters, you have a great eye for pulling things together!


Loved the link to the pottery shop, loved the little houses, loved being able to step away from my frenetic week and vicariously enjoy your knit, stitch and natter.... thanks for another lovely post.

what a lovely post, Lucy. that house is incredible, I keep having to go back and look at it.
If you have time, could you give me some advice about how you found your crochet group. I can't find any local crocheters, and I'd love to have a group like yours... did you set it up? was it easy to get it going, and where/how did peeps hear about it? any advice would be appreciated. xxx


I so love your blog I stare at it in wonder as you are so so clever.
Please stop by my blog and collect your award.


Hello Lucy,

Fiona here, just wanted to ask if you could put a little thankyou from me at the bottom of your next post. I'd like to say thank you very much for all of the lovely compliments your readers left about the little crochet house I made you. I'm quite overwhelmed!

Thank you again for a cheery, friendly, chatty, hooky morning yesterday. Wouldn't it be lovely if everyone who reads our blogs could all meet up for one huge knit and knatter coffee morning, each making one little gift and then exchange them around!

Love Fi x

What a gorgeous little house and what a lovely friend. I wish we had a little cafe like that. Mind you work would get in the way. Roll on the day I can be a SAHM :)


I love your colored stripes!! they do really makeyou happy :)
That house is really really beautoful!! so rich of details!


What a happy habit! I love to visit your blog. Your photography is beautiful, and all of the bright colors are very uplifting. Thanks, too, for being generous with the links! Oh - and the house is precious - what a sweet surprise.


Oooo, that little house from Fiona is just so enchanting! Enjoy your weekend :)
Smiles, DianeM


wow, that felted house is tremendously adorable and inspiring! and the details of the clothesline! wow!


Hi Lucy,
Thanks for sharing your "Thursday Thrills."
I must say I felt as though I was opening your gift with you.
Right down to a little gasp when it came out of the box!
What a sweet crocheted Attic24.
So looking forward to Attic24's debut on Etsy!
All the best!


The sunlight on that cafe table is matched by the lovely friendship of those sitting round it. No wonder you love these Thursdays!

The stripy cups are wonderful. The newest addition to your village is so clever ... just enough abstraction and just enough detail.

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!


Oh how I wish we had a cafe and group like this near us. And very much looking forward to the grand opening of the shop! K x


Really enjoyed this blogpost - that felted house is gorgeous. I've been dropping by your blog and delighted to hear you are opening up an Etsy shop - best of luck!

Love the photographs today, both of the textile pieces and also your KS & N, very envious of the latter indeed. Which reminds me I really ought to see if I can find a similar thing near me.


the little crchet cottage is so pretty :) I love the textile pictures too, gorgeous xxx
