About Me

Yet again, soooooooo excited!!! Just ordered my first lot of soft cotton and I'm set to get cracking. I can now stop making my Yankey Candle collars out of ordinary stranded threads (very much a newby but learning new things everyday). Thank you once again. Loving the snow capped hills by the way.


mi nombre es Marian, vivo en un bello pueblo de soria, tengo una tienda de lanas.. y por causa de la crisis tengo que cerar, mi tienda es mi mayor sueño soy tan feliz entre mis hilos... me recomendaron tu blog y he de decir que despues de mas de 35 años tejiendo he descubierto las mil maravillas que tu nos enseñas, todos los dias mi cara es triste mis ojos lloran en mi interior y mi alma se escapa , vuela a tu casa con la esperanza de que tus hilos me den fuerza para seguir viviendo... attic24 es mi sueño.. gracias por compartir la paz la alegria y esos bellos momentos que nos das con tus fotos. mil gracias desde españa


So bright & cheery (as is the stipey chair with stripey snake!) AND more chubby wrists...mmmmm!

Love that you have updated so frequently recently and REALLY looking forward to the Garland Ta-Dah!

I don't think you realise how many people you keep happy, motivated and inspired...THANK YOU LUCY xxx


Yes, I agree, that yarn is v. nice indeed.I fear I have quite a few colours...Hen mentioned the new Bridders yarn shop in South Street- opened in November, my spies tell me it is v. good indeed with comfortable sofa for knitting on and very lovely selection of yarns and needles.The holly leaves are excellent, how you manage to do everything is a never ending source of amazement and inspiration!


Ooh such lovely holly bunting: christmas cheer slowly creeping in. Must. Learn. To. Crochet.


Oh how lovely to find 2 new posts from you that I hadn't read today! We are pretty much snowed in here - been snowing for 2 days solid in the alps and we now have about 60cm in the garden, so am stuck in - great to have your blog and tutorial to look at! Your view looks lovely with the icing sugar coating..The holly looks so pretty - must have a go. ..


You're blog is my FAVORITE! I can't believe some of the things I've been able to make since learning to crochet in September. Mostly thanks to you!


Assume fake cockney accent a la Dick Van Dyke...."It's a Jolly Holly-Day with Lu-ucy"
Can't wait to have a go at these beauties. Well done despite all those distractions you've given us another excellent tutorial. Hugs!


I'm looking forward to having a shot at the holly, thank you kindly for sharing.
I used to think having a toddler made photographing things difficult, then we got a kitten...!


oops. Never mind my question about the floss. I just read your tutorial... I'll try getting some embroidery thread!!
Thanks again Lucy, you are the BEST!!!
Jeanette :)


Such bright happy holiday decor! Loving it! Your holly looks brilliant, especially with the little berry beads sew onto them. Such fun ^_^ Thank you so much for sharing your pattern!

PS- It is REMARKABLY tempting to buy one of each color upon finding a fun new brand! Hopefully you can build up your supply over time and not break the bank ;)

That holly looks great. Can't wait to see it all together...bet it'll look wonderful!

It's looks so cheery! I can't wait to see it hanging & finished.

What lovely bunting - and thank you for writing up the holly tutorial too. What is it with little boys and crochet hooks? My son is always stealing mine too. xx


Very pretty! Isn't amusing how the little interruptions can be both annoying and enjoyable at the same time? What would we do without them?


Lovely pattern, will have to check my box of embroidery threads to see if I have any nice greens spare.

Lucy, this holly pattern is so effective...I do plan to give it a try.

You've made me laugh with your description of your little boy's interest in crochet.

Best wishes!


Your holly looks fab, Luce and very kind of you to spend your precious spare time writing it up for everyone. Funnily enough, I bought exactly the same threads in J Lewis last week and the colours, oh my! I got a little plastic box too and could not believe the inordinate amount of pleasure I got from winding the threads on the little cards and arranging the colours. I did find I'd selected 20 colours when I got to the till but then it's a business expense, right?! And there are os many colours that 20, well it was positively restrained. Have you seen the new yarn shop in Bridders, at the bottom of South Street, where the art gallery was? (Maybe it's been there ages but I only noticed it a few weeks ago.)

I love your holly Lucy - it certainly does look lovely and jolly - I do love coming over here to see all your homely goodies.

Can't believe that little man of yours, but then 'yes' I do remember those moments. Hair raising and very difficult not to burst out laughing.

Take care and enjoy the rest if your day.......peace.

Hi Lucy,
Thanks for your inspiration!! I LOVE your blog :)
I have one question about your holly leaves... do you use all 6 strands of the floss when making them? Or do you split it into smaller strands?
Thanks so much!!

Happy Holidays!
