Oh how I love this magazine! I live in the States and my bookstore only gets four or five copies a month. I just got this copy today! The pictures are fabulous! It is far better than the American Country Living. It's my favorite magazine by far!

Julie, in upstate New York, U.S.

Okay Lucy, because of your blog, I went out and bought "Country Living"! I couldn't stand the teasing pictures anymore!


Hi Lucy, I just had to comment about the colors of fall..beautiful golds, reds, yellows and even browns....ha, I know it's not your favorite but as such a colorful person as your are, I think you can see how some of us "cozy up" with the colors. With your awesome talent, maybe you could come up with a lovely fall item for us to drool over??? Love your blog


Maybe because this autumn you are blooming yourself and this winter you will get the most precious flower ever.


Hello again from Norway! Hoping today is brighter! I have just joined posted my pictures within your Flickr group of the wrist warmers that you so thoughtfully shared! I made them for my 10 year old daughter! They are simply lovely! I have only just taught myself to knit and crochet within the last year...and just wanted to share that I find your patterns wonderful. I am now beginning the crochet bag, which I think is simply divine! Thank you for your willingness to share. From a beginners perspective it is so appreciated! Lovely day!


When CL hits my mailbox I´m thrilled. i got my copy saturday,but now it´s gone. We can´t find it anywhere so I might end up buying another copy, if it doesn´t turn up SOON.


Hi Lucy, feeling better now after all those nice comments? Here in Rome the weather is good, I mean we are in October, you know it's cold very cold but the sky is blu no clouds around... I'm in office and as I can I go out to find a little bit of sun to worm myself... I'd like to live in a country side... I guess A big City could make you more then muddled... enjoy your time and the baby...
Love Aggy xxx

Isn't it nice to be a little muddled at times? To stop and put your feet up and enjoy all of the simple things that you love. When I feel like that, I look forward to the soft yarn I get to play with!

Oh how I miss autumn though! I love those warm browns and bright reds! We don't get much of an autumn here in Saudi Arabia! :(


I love those pictures too. Especially the one with the trunk and cozy blankets stacked on top. I have been puttering around too. I just can't seem to get in a groove. I just want to go shopping or something .....

Such a sweet peek into fall today here. Hope you were able to have a nice relaxing weekend. Thinking about you.

What lovely photos! Thanks so much for posting them. Exactly what I need to get me in the Autumnal mood. Sorry you feel muddled today, my mind has been full of fluff, too. Like you said, some days are just like that!


Hi Lucy,
Sorry you're a bit muddled maybe the preganancy is to blame, you're usually so cheery and organised, you inspire so many of us. I live in Melbourne Australia and we are just finishing spring (which was lovely with all the new growth and colourful bulbs and flowers)and we have at last had some rain so things are getting a little greener but we are in for another bad summer, today the temp is 8 degrees above average, lovely but not great for this time of year. I have a favour to ask would you be able to take measurements of your Laura Brittain bag (blog 17/9) and let me know as I can get one made and yours looks a perfect size. Hope you fell better tomorrow and that you enjoyed your afternoon relaxing with your projects.



Those are amazing pictures, and they certainly make me want to go out and decorate for Autumn


Beautiful pictures! I have not been feeling the autumn love this year. Yesterday I (finally) started on a blanket, and that seemed to help. No matter how you look at it though I am pining for summer already.

Anna, Sydney

Still love your post, muddle or no muddle, your feel for beauty still transfers.


It's been my favourite magazine for years now - I love it.
Even though the seasons are opposite the ones we are having down here - that just gives me an excuse to drag out the old ones for a squiz.

I always look upon a muddled head as being a bit over-tired - it just needs a bit of TLC and a little rest.

Hi Lucy~
My mother just called to tell me she just GOT it! Your ripple stitch that I showed her last friday. I left her with your written instructions and blogsite as well. She is on her way to the yarn shop~
Your post is beautiful and reminded me that I need to go out back in my yard and cut down some bittersweet for some wreaths~
English Country Living? I have got to look into that one....:)

Shelley(crochetedsass on crochetville)

Lovely pics.Fall is my favorite season.

I just posted about your blog & your inspirational self over on my blog. http://crochetedsass.blogspot.com/

Lovely, indeed! Now I have an advantage, I like brown. It goes so well with pink, and blue, and green... And I really don't care for black, so brown is my black.

But it's true, you just can't beat spring colors!

Enjoy your cozy day! :)


Yes! Yes! Yes! I love these articles too and keep revisiting them!! Hope your muddles disappear. Cx


I remember doing that during pregnancy. it was worst with my first, it seemed I was always so scatter-brained and forgetful. Have a cookie and a hookie!

Hooked In Hove

I'm glad you're embracing the Autumnul goodness - lovely pics! This is my absolute favourite time of year, I have to say. Good for curling up all cosy and reading or hooking, drinking tea and eating hot crumpets mmmmmmmm. I bought some Bonne Maman blueberry jam for just that purpose - lovely! Oh and also because you've convertd me to the jars :)


Lucy, you took those photographs? They are so lovely. To all those from the states...I buy the British Edition of CL at my local bookstore in Philadelphia.

Lovely post Lucy - you couldn't be other than inspiring muddled brain or not!
