Hello Lucy,

I am in awe of your amazing talent and skills! That's the coziest place I've seen, it reminds me of the old home of my grandparents where I used to spend my summer vacations as a kid. So warm and so homey, lovely space!


You have a lovely and cosy house!

According to my experience books are the toughest stuff in home to manage and if you have children in your home then it become a challenge to manage book so i like the part where you have showed the books .


I liked the color of flowers,and also the way you have used the stars and other decoration material it is just outstanding.

Hello, Happy to discover your site and see that we have many things in common about home and colouring and doing things...I am Magali, mum of Léna, 4 years old little girl. We live in Marseille, south of France. I quit my job two months ago in order to taking care of me, my health and my little family. Now that I have much time I am starting many projects and with Léna we love to decorate our appartement and do things with papers, gardening. I am novice in sewing and never tried crocheting but seeing what you do made me just love it....hope I will make it ;) Thank you for sharing. Beautiful blog and crafts and house...see you...my blog is in french but pictures can tell everything ;)

Your home looks so warm and cozy! In love with the hanging crocheted stars! Is there a pattern for those?


LOL, we call that Emergency Attention the "Fluff and Stuff".


Gorgeous rooms.


Hi Lucy,

We are having a Bloggers Fundraising Raffle in aid of Cancer Research and I am on the scrounge for prizes! All prizes we have so far have been handmade by us bloggers, and I wondering if you would like to donate a little crocheted something?

Do have a look at my blog and see what it's all about, and if you can help, please email me. Thanks so much.


Oh Luce seeing your Grandma Twinkles still hanging made my heart flutter...
They still look just as perfect as when you made them...And another huge thank you for putting up the link...You are a treasure...
I adore the way your home looks...It would make me want to stay wrapped up in granny goodness forever...


I was just thinking how beautiful your home looked. How I miss my Victorian house, still trying to love my tiny 1970s bungalow - really miss all the high ceilings!

Oh my goodness, I LOVE your blog and all the others in your link bar. I have become addicted to crochet especially your granny squares (thank you so much for the pattern and instructions).

Your home is so cheery and pretty! I just love it!


I just found your ripple tutorial from back in April of 2009! Thank you so much for the plain and simple explanation to ripple crochet - FINALLY!!!! Thank you so much - I am now a new subscriber - can't wait to peruse through your blog - it looks great! I like to have a stitchery or a crochet/knitting project at night for when I'm hanging out with the family and not quilting. Thank you for inspiring to crochet again! I taught my grandmother to crochet over 30 years ago and she crafted well into her 80's. Wrapping up in her blankets is so comforting now - I want to leave heirlooms for my kids just as she has for me.

Great to have found you!


Hello Lucy,

just want to let you know what a big inspiration your blog is! I discovered it only yesterday and I'm so enjoying reading it. I got so inspired that I just started making a ripple blanket with your pattern! So thank you for keeping me busy the next year or so ;)
Take care, Carolien


I'm so pleased to have found such a beautiful uplifting place! I'll enjoy many a visit here with a cup of tea in hand!


I love your star garland, its so cheerful!

Hi Lucy,
we're still stranded here in Switzerland, may be back Wednesday, maybe not! Probably will come back by train, 13 hours, should get the ends darned in by the time we get back! Will call when we do. In the meantime, you won't have Tom's chatty company! Love Cx


Glad to have you back Lucy,and that you had a fab time in Dorset, I am very jealous that you are back home as we are stuck in Barcelona, unable to fly home to Hampshire ! I have visited the most amazing wool shop here and THANK GOODNESS I brought my hook with me , as I think I may have time to make a kingsize ripple blanket whilst I wait for the old ash cloud to shift !!!!!! Will flicker the photos when I arrive back in the UK !
