Lovely little cottage and great blog as usual. Hebden Bridge.....ah yes I remember it well...last visit I bought earrings and pretty mugs with pastoral scenes. I bet it's still full of crafty shops. Have a bon weekend.


How lovely, crochet cafe coffee mornings! I wish I could come too. All my friends laught at me when I get my wool out!


Lovely colours, wish I lived closer so I could pop in. I'm cracking on with my hexagon blanket... I'm liking the fact it's growing very fast!! :)

Hello Lucy, I have never commented on a blog before, but yours is inspirational. I have had such fun making jar cosies,flower garden cushions and have a blanket in progress. Yesterday my friend and I had a little retail therapy trip to Embsay, then on to a lovely town I havent visited for ages, I started to recognise the church...the canal....and lo and behold a cafe...with all sorts of gorgeousness upstairs! Oh Lucy , its lovely, what a wonderful place to knit and natter!!! I wish I lived closer than York. Thank you for your wonderful blog, your cheerfulness and your talent. By the way , there was nothing left in the charity shops.....is this something to do with you???! Lyn xx


Well I thought that that was just the cutest thing EVER, that you asked them fot the stipey cup for your Latte because it would look better in the photos!lol !
See !....I'm NOT alone in my thinking ! :)
The cup was the first thing I saw, and I thought...."Oh! Now wouldn't THAT look GREAT at Christmas !!! ..The little gift "House"....I dont think I even have WORDS for how much I ADORED it! I don't suppose there is any way you could drop a hint as to WHERE we could get the pattern ??? Coming HERE each morning I feel like YOU at your coffee shop on Thursdays !:) See you in the morning !


... bellissime foto.... bellissimi colori!!!
Ciao Elisa

Hello Lucy, what a thoughtful gift from Fiona. It looks so good with your houses, right at HOME. I think the cafe should turn into one big blog,crochet party. What fun that would be.

The Antidote

I had been thinking about joining blog land for about six months, but it was discovering your blog which gave me the final shove!
And you are right, it is such a warm friendly community. I am so pleased to receive and read every comment as you probably are too.
It sounds as though you had a lovely morning with your "virtual" friend x
