Dorset holiday cottages

It shows you really enjoyed and you didnt waste a single time.


what a beautiful place..I loved the garden, the sea, the pitcher and ooooh the rocks..i just love rocks on the beach..
love your crochet lovelies...


Thanks for sharing your holiday. Lovely colours too; almost felt that I was there besides the river!


Well how nice to see good old Dorset getting some time on your blog, I live in Dorset and consider myself fortunate indeed!


I too, share in that 'hooky action' and love the feeling of the sun streaming in while hook in hand.

Your work is gorgeous and your pictures so, so beautiful!


Hi Lucy, thanks for sharing your lovely holiday photos!It all looks gorgeous,especially the chair by the river!

Please help! I am wanting to put together a 'learn to crochet' hamper for a friend - could you recommend a simple book to get her? and if I want to get her a couple of hooks what would be a good size - probably to use with double knitting wool?
Many thanks

Mmmmmm, I feel some vacation relaxation just reading this. Thanks for taking us along . . . if only for 5 vicarious minutes!


Welcome back Lucy. Looks like youve put us all in the mood for a mini holiday.
Thanks for sharing & I love those lazy days to.


Hello Luce

Sounds like you had a fantastic time away. Hope you are not missing the sea too much. Everything looks great. I wondered if you could let me know where that river was with the shallow water and stones. My kids love walking along and exploring round streams like that.

I fancy a little trip to that area in the may half term. Any specific ideas?

Glad you are back - looking forward to seeing the paint on the walls in the bathroom. Just a tip - if you are painting on bare new plaster make sure you slightly water the paint down for the first coat otherwise it just sits on top of the plaster rather than sealing it first.

I will do a post on mosaics like you asked but it is quite complicated.

Have a lovely week.

Love Emma xxxxxx

What a lovely spot, and you were so fortunate with the weather too. I love Dorset...not too far from me in Devon either. Really nice photos.

hill upon hill

That looks so good. Such a blue sky. We visited England one year in April and we had the best weather. Was that a William Morris cushion on the chair near the river (I love William Morris designs). What a lovely recount of your holiday, looking forward to more.

PS how does someone learn to crochet?

I think that I want to move to Dorset! Stunning photos!


Looks like you had an absolutely perfect vacation. Well, all but the ferocious red spider... I believe I will need one of your cozy afghans to ward off the bad dreams after reading about that!


Your grannies are lovely...


Hi Lucy,thank you for sharing your beautiful photos. We have a Bridport here in Tasmania and it's in the shire of Dorset so I'm guessing the early English settlers here saw some resemblance or were just feeling very homesick when they ventured into the the north east of our state. So My mother's family comes from Dorset too; Dorset, Tasmania.


What a lovely vacation! I've missed your colorful posts this past week. :)


That all looks fantastic. I knew I should have gone with you and you could have taught me to crochet while we were away.


ooh I'm so jealous it looks like you had such a lovley time. do you do all the centres for your squares firt then?

Thank you - you brought back some treasured memories - we had two lovely holidays at Burton Bradstock - many afternoons spent at the cafe on the beach - lovely.
Love your blog, by the way:)


Just remembered did you go wool SALE shopping today, I didnt get a chance to go...I'm gutted. Had been really looking forward to it, never mind maybe the next time.

Wow Luce! What a wonderful time you've had! Thanks for the chance to go on a virtual holday with you, cant wait for parts 2 & 3! Its the next best thing to being away myself, Ive just realised I havent been away on holiday for 7 years!...how shocking is that?!!!
Think I need to try and resolve the situation, but in the mean time I am going to reread your lovely description of your Easter break.....sigh....
