Just bought myself a Bernina 707 on ebay! Is this what yours is? I'm really looking forward to doing some free-motion stitching...I already have 2 machines, but neither can do the free thing. Fingers crossed the new one's a good one!


Oh, what a fun ! My mother has nearly the same : the same buttons except the working-table. She bought it 45 years ago and it still works !

Just catching up with your blog entries and I want to cry! You are just so talented - not just, but only, and then more ...

I love Bernina. I have that machine too. She is actually a Swiss made machine, and if you look at the first two numbers of the serial number on the back.. that is the year she was born!

Such beautiful colors!!! How can we feel depressed? NEVER!!!! What a therapy!!! :)



Ru Ok? Missing your blog hugely and hope you are back soon.

Gorgey gorge gorgeous!


Hi I love your site. Started making a hexagon blanket today with left over yarn laying around the house. Will be interesting how far I can go before wanting more colors.
Your home looks warm and cozy. And your work is beautiful
Thanks for blogging

Hi - Missing the updates - feeling like tomorrow never comes!

I'm worried that cloud nine may have taken Lucy away. She's been ever so long! No, I'm sure she's just got her priorities right and is busy stitching away up there in her attic. I must go outside and just check though. haha


Hi Lucy
I am writing by way of thanks, I found your blog and am crocheting a baby shawl using hexagons not in bright colours like yours although I love what you do, I just don't have that sort of confidence! Four colours baby cream, pink green and mauve-we know it is a girl Now trying to work out how to put them together, should the colours be in rounds, rows or random-I think I am going to try random (I tried the other two last night and was not happy so have undone!) HAve you considered writing a book; you are so good at this crochet stuff and colour and I loved your applique pictures and photography. THANK YOU FOR SHARING. Best wishes Anne


your little stitched pictures are so lovely. every time i come by i feel quite refreshed afterward. thank you so much for being here :)


Hi Lucy,

This is Allie, who recently moved to Portland, OR. Just wanted to let you know that I am using your technique for joining granny squares as they are being made, and it's working like a dream! Thank you for your help and clear pictures-- as well as the beautiful colors and inspiration I take regularly from you blog. Thank you!!! So glad you're enjoying sewing and getting positive feedback. Also love your Bernina-- just bought myself a vintage New Home machine, which I love so much and am looking forward to using often-- but my crochet called....

All best and checking regularly!!


They are beautiful Lucy. I'm sure it's a very rewarding experience. Wishing you all the best of luck:)


Sorry, I mean't pleased!

Well Done Lucy!

Lucy - I'm not surprised your work sold so quickly; the pictures are just gorgeous. I think that you're way more talented than you realize. If it weren't for the strict budget I had to put myself on, I would have bought one myself.


Oh my goodness!

They are just so amazing! Your fingers work wonders!


Your work is beautiful, Im sure I can imagine it in a gallery somewhere seaside-y...you know the kind of shop I mean! Lots of luck to you with your sewing projects and well done on a flying start!

Beautiful Stitchery!! You're so talented!


I love the boats and harbor pictures and the colors are wonderful, so vibrant! The people who purchased them are very lucky.
Haven't heard anything about the bathroom lately, is the remodel and decorating done? Any pictures of the project coming our way?



Hi Lucy, I just wanted to pop in to tell you that I LOVE your blog!!! I have been following it for a little while and am always excited to see another post from you. Your beautiful crafts always make me smile, you are very talented! I was extremely happy to see your sewing machine too, as a beginner sewer I find all of those new fandangled contraptions very scary. I love my old Godfrey-Sterling machine, it's very heavy and very solid and very straight forward. The best thing about it though, was that it was free, I found it dumped on the side of the road needing a home. It had some tension problems, but with the internet by my side we soon fixed her up :D
I am so very glad that your pictures sold overnight too, I never had a doubt though, they were gorgeous, I just wished I could afford one, maybe one day!

Also....because I love your blog so much....
I have awarded you the 'one lovely blog award' on my blog http://theowlandthemonkey.blogspot.com/

Thank you for sharing your crafts :D
