I can't believe it's been a whole year since your little man was born. Belated Happy Birthday little B.


Happy belated birthday Little B! I have enjoyed every post you put on your blog! Keep it up!


That flower blanket is really sweet. I'm really looking forward to the ta-dah this time!

I want to thank you for such lovely images and words that brighten all of our days; whether we happen to be on your island or across the Big Water like me. I have been working on some wonderful hooky things inspired by you; namely a Rainbow Ripple Blanket and a large Bag. So glad Baby B had a Happy Birthday! Happy New Year to you and your lovely family.



Happy New Year :) Can't wait to see the blanket ta-dah post! And speaking of blankets, thank you so much for inspiring me to make my own granny stripe blanket! It is amazing and loved by all: boyfriend, visiting friends, babies of visiting friends and cats. Oh, and by me, I absolutely adore my new crocheted blanket! You can see it here http://systersandra.blogspot.com/2011/01/den-fantastiska-filten.html (in Swedish) I was lazy and chose the same colours as you, you have excellent taste! My almost-sister-in-law wants to make one of her own, with the same colours :)


Oh yes, I remember the first year of number three child being particularly difficult. She's two now and things are much easier - at least I get to sleep now anyway.

Happy Birthday to your little one! Please may I have some of that yummy caterpillar cake? It looks delicious.


Seems like a lovely start off the year to me!Enjoy!! greetings Petra


that jug is fabulously bright!
A very happy first to your babe :)


It's me Lucy the woman who e-mailed you a little over a year ago about my baby story at age 41. Got misty eyed reading that your baby boy has turned one! Make sure to give him a good cuddle. My how time flies. My baby girl is now 6 years old! They do grow quickly. LOVE LOVE LOVE Attic24 You are an AMAZING inspiration to us all. May the New Year bring your family wonderful, colorful, cuddley times! XOXOXO From the Mom of 5 in Sunny Orlando

Hi, I received a blog award and I'm passing it on to you. You can pick it up at this page on my blog: http://homeofalonelywoman.blogspot.com/2011/01/my-blog-won-award.html


Beautiful post. I hope you're planning on sharing the pattern for that adorable cake!!


Definitely, a very good place to be.


Hi Lucy,
I don't ussually comment to posts but I had to tell you that I follow your blogs every post and your patterns and creations are such an inspiration. Thanks for sharing your life with us!!!!


Beautiful post. And what a lot has happened in the first few days of this new year. Happy birthday to your littly, and may many happy hooky hours lie ahead.


Congratulations to your boy. My Lucifer turns two years old today, I can't believe where this time went. I'm gonna stretch this whole thinking of him as a two year-old a bit, he was born late at night so I'm gonna let him stay one until there's just no return. It's funny how it can ache in your heart a bit, just feeling growing up is such a speedy business. But maybe you catch up, do you?


love the LA calendar! and of course all that wonderful, warm, color in your home and life! Had a rough day at work, reading this makes me happy! Lucy you are awesome!

All I can say... is pop over. My song today says just how I feel about this posting and reaching one year.

No more, just go listen sweetie,

Happy Birthday Little B and Happy New Year :-) This post made me smile a lot, January can seem so dull when all the decorations come down but you're right, it's a good time to look forward to the year not be afraid of it! Looking forward to seeing the finished blanket :-)

At my place, we still have SO MUCH snow. Today it came about 15 cm more... Really want it to be spring now, but I guess it wont be spring here until mid march or even april...

Another Happy Birthday wish for Little B!


Dear Amiga, I’ve been thinking about my main resolution for this year. I have a lot of creative ideas and sometimes I see a lot of my ideas being done by others who have great success with them. I decided to stay positive by visualizing the final outcome of the project and not being afraid of the downside. I think Creativity is a fabulous quality! I just have to put foundations under all the dreams I’ve built in the air and continue enjoying myself and my life!
As Henry David Thoreau said in his Conclusion to "Walden",
"I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
Stay warm and cozy my friend! Hasta Pronto,
Gloria x


My Dear Amiga Lucy, Happy New Year to you and your family from my Sweet home! Wishing all the best for you and your loved ones in this Nuevo año and Feliz cumpleaños to Dear Little B :o)
Take care. Hasta Pronto,
Gloria x
