Siempre me pregunto qué tan frustrados Vincent Van Gogh debe ser. Quiero decir, él pasó por la vida de un mendigo, sin que ninguno de sus pinceladas obteniendo Zapatillas Puma


that confirms to me what a pushchair is. Have seen that word elsewhere and it has always left a question in my mind...
it is a stroller!


I haven't been in to check on you in too long! :) (midterms and all...booo!!)

But I wanted you to know, when I saw that you mentioned getting a sling, that I just saw a news report on tv, maybe an hour ago, where they were talking about the risks of suffocation associated with them. So you might want to do some research on the one you choose to buy before you put your precious little one in to stroll!

MAN you live in the most beautiful place in the world, don't you. I think so. xo


hello lovely lucy, i'm back!
have just been over to Simone's blog and realise 'that' day is almost here...how exciting is that! 2 years (almost) :o) i'm saying this quietly shhhhhh, don't want to wake little B with my party squeels.




Hello Lucy!
I´m Marlene from Portugal.
I found your blog some months ago. Since then I can´t stop to visit this adorable blog. Your works are so beautiful and chaming!!...
At the time I didn´t know how to do crochet. But I really wanted to try so inspired with your blog and following your instructions and some videos on the Internet I started in January and I can not stop.
So today I let the shame aside!
Thank you for "Joining Granny Squares". Helped me a lot!
And thank you very much for being so generous,

a BIG hug from Portugal,

Ps: sorry about my English


You live wonderful!!!



Thank you for such a lovely blog. Your photos are so full of vibrant colors. I find your pictures and your posts absolutely inspiring and comforting. You have many gifts. Thank you for sharing. I can't wait to have a few more minutes to sit and enjoy your pages!



Hey there! Thought you might like a very simple pattern for a sling... I made mine in under an hour... loads of fun, and needless to say you can have all the colour you want!!! Love Mairi


Oh Lucy, you are SO lucky! Not only do you get greens and trees and beautiful countryside on your walks, but you also get canals and Abbeys!!! I am an insanely jealous Anglophile American who would love to take that walk every day!!! Ain't life grand?

Where do you live??? (roughly I mean, not your exact address) It looks lovely. Walking is so good for our brains to process things. I love it too.


Which the thread that was used in this bag?
If you to answer me it cannot
to write in my blog
" http://artesanatoemcroche.blogspot.com / ."
Thank you


Yorkshire, beautiful one day, perfect the next!


I also would love to support your urge for walking again... I have a baby carrier sitting here without use any more. It is made by wilkinet (http://www.wilkinet.co.uk) and if you are interested, please send me an email. It is plain blue, so a little bit of "attic24-pimping" would be neccessary...


your blog has al lot of inspiration for my.
I have put a link on my blog.

Lots of hugs from Helena in Sweden

Hi Lucy!
Wonderful! As always. How I long for spring now when I see your photos. We have so much snow, that I still can't see any grass. And my snowdrops are nowhere to be seen :( But, the sky is so bright and blue, and thats a good thing:) Still, it's about minus 10 degrees (Celcius/Centigrades... what do you call it?) and thats NOT a good thing anymore. I really really want spring to come now! And seeing your beautiful photos, make me want it even more. I can't remember when we had such long winter last time. It's almost 3 months now, since I last saw the grass in my garden. I feel so sorry for all the wild animals, like the moose and roedeer, the hares and rabbits, and all the small birds, that can't find food now. We can't feed everyone:( but I do try...
My goodness, what a depressing comment I wrote. Please forgive me ;)

I hope you will have a WONDERFUL weekend, Lucy!!
Love and hugs from Anna xxx


Oh these photos are divine! I love walking too. My girls have just started walking to school by themselves and I miss those walks so much. Lovely post. K

Hi Lucy,
Can't believe how green it is where you live. Everything is brown here in New York even on sunny, blue sky days. We've had so much white a lot this winter. Everything looks so clean and bright for such a short period of time until it starts to melt. My greyhound (ex-racer) loves the snow. We have just a tiny patch left in our back yard and she loves to sleep there for a bit. I tried to remind her that she lived and raced in the Florida heat but apparently her warm, fleece coat makes up for everything. You have a beautiful town, so peaceful looking.


How rude of me, I'd meant to say how wonderful and full of light your blog is again. Walking is wonderful and in such lush surroundings you are truly lucky.

Off to make myself a vase cover - inspired by you of course!!


This is where I bought my slings from when my babies were young. Sadly she's shutting down the shop now so if you give her an email she may be able to find you something at a cheap rate?
