Your photos are beautiful! I love all of it!

Maggie Rapps

Have just found your site and as a crochet novice was happy to be able to make my first flower.

Looking forward to visiting your site to attempt another project.


I love this post. I love England and some day I am going to visit again. I love it when you show us the beauty that is all around you. I live near a national park in Texas and we had visitors from Cornwall yesterday, so Britain in general is on my mind. You brightened my day...

While the world outside sometimes seems crazy,
it is so joyful,refreshing and calming to come see your talent and to read your lovely words. You are an inspiration and I appreciate you! Thank you for sharing. Penny, Colorado, U.S.A.


Lovely! We escaped Leeds and ventured out to the seaside this week and had the best time. You do make Yorkshire look lovely.

Thanks for sharing. I have always wanted to visit the UK. I homeschool our girls and someday we will bring them over for a visit. I love the architecture. I also love the beautiful purple flowers. I think we are going to have an early spring here in Wisconsin and I cannot wait to get out in my garden again! Blessings to you and your family!

You're a lovely mom!
I'm glad they have come out!
You are lucky to live in a dream!
Happiness in the sun ...

(I want to make your flower happy!)


Looks like a lovely place!


Really pleased you had some nice days out. Hope the February air blew away the cobwebs!


Fabulous playground. Train rides are such fun for little ones, even short ones, your half term hols have been exciting.


Love East Riddleston - I visited last year, about this time, and the gardens were similarly a little lacklustre, but I'm sure they grow :) Did they still have the collections of embroidery there - highlight of my trip!


You are a wonderful mother! ! I can tell!...
I just stumbled upon this by googling how to poach an egg without a poacher! And I just want to say God Bless from Louisiana! We are in the process of celebrating Mardi Gras here ! So much fun!
Your kids would love it!
Many more happy days to you and your family!



Hi Lucy,
Lovely post of your trips out. Yes the weather has been a little bit better.
Going back to your "poached eggs" post. i made myself a PE on toast this morning for breakfast a la attic24. And i was perfect and yummy.
Love Carole from Rossendale xxxxx

Ellen Brugmans

Looks like you've had two marvellous outings.
Hope your Hooky Day is coming along just fine!
Don't forget to tell us all about it ;-).


Lucy-looks like you guys had a fabulous day! That's one of the many things I miss about England- all of the manor homes and such! I could go through one everyday and not get bored. You are so lucky. Hopefully the weather holds out for the rest of the week. Have a good one!


Wow I keep thinking that your page is great, I just feel so good every time I see all the colour you have in all you do, I hope one day I´ll be able to go back to visit your marvelous country, I would love leave there, hope one day you can send me a private mail and can be web friends and you could share some photos of your country with me, so I could remember the time I spent there in the past. All good look from Tenerife and keep sharing your crochet work.

Fleur Cotton

That sound lovely, Lucy.

It's a great feeling to get out in the fresh air, and when you do you realise that there are signs of spring all around which lifts the heart even more!

Enjoy your day of hookiness.

Fleur xx


That play park looked fantastic - any chance you could let me know where it is... we have family in Yorkshire and if it is at all close to Huddersfield it would be great take my two round it :-)

Joyce Stewart

Wonderful post Lucy....so great to be able to hop on a train to a nearby village to a super play park...over here in N.Ireland we have very limited trains....we would have to travel for 3/4 hour to get a train. Once a year we travel from Belfast to Londonderry on the train, just for the journey....the scenery is very wonderful, we would have a couple of hours in Londonderry to walk the walls and have a bite to eat (if I didn't bring a small picnic)....and then home again...it is so relaxing travelling by train.
Wonderful crocus...thanks for sharing all of this.


PS well done on 'winning' the Inside Crochet magazine blog award...No 1!


I was beautiful here in the south yesterday too, really felt like Spring was on the way, and still light after 5pm too! Well....just!

Look forward to the hooky. :-)


Ahh it must have been sooo great to get out in actual sunshine!! I'm still waiting here, it's been weeks! Enjoy your hooky time today :-)
Oh, and Little Lady's stripy tights rock! xxxx


Absolutely beautiful photos of the English country side, I really want to go there on hols. Spring is on its way!
