Congratulations on your award. February has definitely been a manky month this year. :)


Lucy! Gratulations! You are the number one!!!! Thank you for your Ideas, projects and feelings. Your blog is an inspiration in my life and for my handicrafts. I complete the flower-pillow in black-grey-colors today evening. Best wishes to you and your family.


Hello,lovely lady! Love your blog, it really lifts my spirits!( Just a wee safety thing- watch that blind cord with your Little B - I'd tie it up out of his way asap now he's probably at a climbing stage) xxx


Hi Lucy, I was naming my favourite 15 blogs for A Versatile Blogger award and I just had to include yours as your bubbly creativity and colour really does brighten my days.

I don't expect a response, but had to let you know that I really appreciate your blog.



I just love to read your blog, it's so inspiring.

Hi Lucy,Just discovered your blog, breath of home for me,live in South Africa now but born and bred a Geordy, Craster has fond memories, just loved the snowdrops,rooftops,and all thing Northumbrian.
Love Tricia


I love Craster - we are heading there at Easter for a week. Be warned though, the word on the street is you need a second mortgage to eat and drink in the Jolly Fisherman since it changed hands :-(
Congratulations on the award - you certainly deserve it! X

Lucy, I thought that you might like to know that your blog award can be read online for anyone without access to the Inside Crochet mag: http://insidecrochet.wordpress.com/2012/02/15/inside-crochet-blog-awards-the-results/


February was long and odd here, normally we have chilly windy winters but this winter was all together too warm, we had bits of springy weather and then quite a few gloomy muggyish grey days... not to mention instead of lovely shades of white Georgia is brown in the winter(ikk) thankfully march is looking up here, and i cant wait to get some springy flowers for my home!

Cheers for March!


Lucy, only you can make February look like an impressionist painting!!!


I am not sure why people spend so much time griping about our lovely weather? We have a lovely temperate climate in the UK and we are very lucky. We experience everything with very little ill effect. Not so hot we get drought but lovely and warm with blue skies and not so cold we freeeze but we get to experience snow and freshness. We get enough rain so honestly what's to moan about!

How can the rain out side affect your life? If everything is happy and you are blessed in life then why does the snow or wind take away from that? Some people are just ungrateful and unable to appreciate all they have, forever wanting more more more. We have it all here. We are most fortunate. January and February are lovely slow and welcome months. In fact they have gone by very quickly this year. We have so much yet we moan about it!

Congratulations, for your next holidays,I always get happy with all the colours of your blog, lots of love from Tenerife.


You have so much that's bright and good in your life - and you generously share it with us to brighten our days. I hope you feel loads of thankful bloggy hugs coming your way!

Sarah Sunshine

I'll try to beam some sunshine to you from here on the South Coast - we've had quite a bit of it the last few days and it's even been too warm for a coat. Growing up in London, I didn't realise quite how different it was south of the Downs!

Fleur Cotton

Congratulations on your blog award Lucy.

Truly deserved.

Love your photo mosaics, your flower one especially cheered me up.

I'm a late-comer to your wonderful blog. I've already made your Blooming Flower Cushion and want to thank you for the comprehensive tutorial. Thank you also for putting a bit of sunshine in MY February!


SUCH a well deserved award. Enjoy feeling pink and tickly :-D Lovely pics for such a bleak month. It was glorious here at Rotten Towers yesterday but today is grey as anything.


Congratulations on the award, you seriously deserve it. I adore your blog. It makes me smile and feel happy; it inspires me to pick up my hook and play too!

Hope March brings you lots of colour and fun.
