Oh, I absolutely HAVE to make a print of the sunflowers in the blue vase for my laundry room. Would you mind terribly if I "borrowed" your beautifully creative endeavor for my decorating THEME? It would be a stunning addition to my wall. A master photographer could not do any better than you do at photographing the wonderful sights you experience. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

You are so incredibly talented!!


Great to see you making use of your houses - I loved seeing them last year when you showed them off. And I think looks fab especially the sea-green sidebars! Love and stuff xx


Hi Lucy,
I love, love, love the banner and I have been following your blog for about a year I think! I love your colors, creativity, love hearing about your little family!!!


love the banner! it's so sweet!


Being from the "sunflower state"; Kansas here in the US I love the sunlower kudos. Have you seen this sunflower? http://sewritzytitzy.blogspot.com/2010/09/sunflower.html
I'm scurrying around trying to get the book and the thread so I can start my own.

I love the new banner, very jolly. :)


Love the little houses and the new blog layout. It sounds like you are getting into a routine with litle B. Good for you ☺


Your blog makes me so happy everytime I read it.
I must say I missed the wonderfull new banner at first, but only because I was drawn towards the lovely sunflower taking up all my attention! Your blog reminds me to take some time for ME and sometimes I just leave the page open on one of your colorful pictures just because...

Sunflowers are stunning; the whole courtyard agrees!~! Your new banner beams with cheer and warmly given goodness. I love the way the hills are made; I need an example and now you have provided same-husband may get his requested fabric sculpture with you to thank ...


Hi Lucy. I have been reading and enjoying your blog for quite awhile.

I noticed your blog changes immediately. The banner is beautiful. Colorful and eye catching.

Also saw your ads. I said to myself, good for you, and clicked on a few. If that helps you so you can keep providing your readers with smiles, wonderful stories and excellent photos, then it's a no-brainer. Easy. I'll do it.

Don't ever stop blogging. I look forward to reading each new entry.

Hurrah for lovely blog re-designs and also scrummy-yummy fruit plates!

Lucy!!! You deserve to get paid for what you offer and what you have given me and so many. I would run out to the store and buy a book of YOUR crochet patterns...with your easy instructions and awesome illustrations ANYDAY!. I would and I am sure many others would too. I look forward to that day. I am always thinking...how would Lucy do this or how would Lucy do that. You should put a donate button your site too. ;)

Light in the Darkness

Good heavens there are a lot of people who read this. What a compliment! I love "reading" your accent. I had the hardest time figuring out what a pushchair was! :D It's a Stroller here. It made me smile anyway. Thank you for your "crazy hobby".

Hello Lucy, I really, really love your blog including the new banner. The sunflowers are cheery & delightful. I look forward to hearing more about your family & your life's journey. Continue to enjoy your life in blogland!


I've been reading your blog for a year now, and I absolutely love it! You should definitely think on taking on sponsors. Your blog gets many readers, and so it would make a good use of space to feature those businesses whom you like/love. Soulemama does something similar on her blog.

Also, you should definitely ignore your husband on this! It's so not a "crazy hobby"! I sincerely hope he's more supportive than what that comment lets on. You're not just a "crafter" or a crazy blogger ... but a very talented artist. I love your use of color, I love your embroidery, I love all your crochet projects. And you're so generous to share them with online world. Thanks so much for that! You actually got me started on crochet. I've made your ripple blanket, your bag, and now am doing your granny stitch blanket. I still want to do the wreath and birdie!

I, for one, would love it if you opened an etsy shop. I'd definitely buy your embroidery - in a heartbeat!! I'd also buy a book from you, pay for your designs, and heck, yes, even pay to read your blog.


Yes! What a happy shot of color! I love your little houses ~ they remind me of an etsy artist who makes miniature clay houses. I imitated some of hers with polymer clay. They were not a perfect imitation, but they were delightful to me nonetheless! I think the ad is very non-intrusive. Blogging is cheaper than therapy, right?!


Pretty flowers, lovely houses, and nice makeover! When little B is bigger maybe you can bring your book idea to life. :-) It would be wonderful.


If you do write a book don't be like certain other people who stop sharing things and say "I can't show you this you'll have to get the book". So annoying when you've been a loyal blog follower and the blogger has been asked to write a book in the first place because they have lots of followers. Sorry my pet hate. I love your blog it's so happy and always gives me an uplift. Thank you.


Love your new header, and even more to see it as a project in your hands, it's as if the blog itself is handmade :)

Tina, the quiet homemaker

Oooh, pretty banner!! LOVE it! Guess what I did today? I thought I'd invented a new crocheted project, but someone else had beaten me to it...it's SO fab though! Crocheted paper chains!!! There's a link on my blog if you want to see! :)


Good for you regarding the ads! Love the little houses as banner, very nice! I have three kids myself and can only agree on the 'not having time to pee' issue, though these days, when I do find the time, I usually have a least 2 smallies crowding in behind me! :o)



i like your blog it´s so colorful and cosy!
Have a wonderful weekend!


Love the banner and the sun flower - well I can't stop smiling!!!!


Hello Lucy
Since a while I have been following your blog and your kind reviews about your life and your everyday life in England.
I love the colorful blankets that you crochet.
I´m always curious about what you report next.
I hope you will forgive my perhaps slightly bumpy English.
Greetings from Germany sends

Dear Lucy here at our house its lots and lots of fruit at the moment as I was
making lots of cake etc over the holidays!! They will have to wait until half term for cake treats!!!
Went shopping and side tracked into yarn department to look at all the new
shades of yarn. Did not purchase any but had an IDEA!! As I have a birthday
due very soon I'll ask for a yarn treat!!!
When you shared the tutorial for the springtime wreath I made one. It is hanging up here and has been much admired. You should definitely do a book. How about crochet and pictures combining fabric and stitches.
I think it would be great!!!!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.xxxxx
