Super Real

The govt tends to view the National Finance Commission Award as being a method of passing about the responsibility of utilising resources transparently on the provinces Super Real share carnage wipes 120bn off the value of our pensions - he said: 'the proven fact that strong, creditworthy businesses are struggling to access funding means that this method is broken.

Hi Lucy, how is Conivan coming on? I watch with excitement on your updates. Today I am SO excited I too will collect my first Caravan. I havent slept a wink so will be a very tired puppy later but it WILL BE SO worth it!! I have dreamed since being a child of having my own one day. SO FINALLY hubby has agreed the time is right for one. I cant wait for our first trip. Hoping the sun will eventually show its face this summer! Hoping to have my first brew later today even though it will be from a flask! Keep up the good work and I will continue to watch! :)


Hello Lucy,
Kathy here from the USA.
I love your blog and check every few days. I have crocheted a few of your lovely bags and other little treasures. I am very interested in your crochet tour and have visited the website. I have requested more information so who knows maybe we will meet in France, bye for now.

Oh, I just love your blog. And your creations! I would just love if you'd take a minute to support my new link party and link up one of your amazing posts! It's a fiber arts party!


Oh Lucy you're such an inspiration - all those gorgeous colours! I admit to having a little squee at them all in the van. I just wanted to add that I'm a fellow Little Grey Rabbit fan, and so jealous to see your haul - but now decided to trawl jumble sales for more of the books. Thanks for the cheeriness you always provide,

Susan Mills

Lucy, you are having so much fun! We are taking possession of our first very own travel trailer ("caravan" in Americanese) one week from today. I can't wait to start turning it into a cozy, happy little home for us and get it out on the road.

I hope your trip to the sea was fantastic. We'll be headed toward the Rhode Island shore soon.

Your happy little blog brings such joy to my heart! Connievan looks more and more like you each camping season. I found the cutest blog with the cutest crochet clock you just have to check out. It reminded me so much of you.

(scroll down) it is darling!


Hi Lucy,
Hugs from sunny FL. Just finished a show with my youth community theatre and had a thought for you about your curtains. We sometimes do it to change over a costume piece. Why not add Velcro or snaps to your panels that will go onto your velvet curtain base. This way if they ever need washing you can remove them easily with out having to wash them with the velvet ones attached. It may be a long task sewing so many jumbo snaps or NON-STICKY Velcro but we have done this idea with costumes and it works wonderfully! Love the look you are shooting for and the books. Remind me of Peter Rabbit. I too love books about little animals creatures & fairies. Thanks for sharing Lucy. Enjoy getting Connievan ready for another adventure this year.
Smiles from Sunny Florida, Donna

Oh I would desperately love a caravan, or better yet, a campervan of my own! I used to go on caravan holidays all the time when I was little and loved them. I'm from the north of England too - do you go to Scarborough ever? That was one of my favourite places!


Love all of it but especially the curtains and the flowers stuck on the outside--deeelightful! My husband might be resistant to them though-- like yours. Transporting cutesy and adorable is not mannish in his book and he'd hate the attention it would draw---but I'd love it.

It's going to look amazing when it's completed. I really like the pillows and bedding. You probably already do this but a big dish with a fill of sodium in assimilates any wetness in the van overwinter. Satisfied camping!

My name is fee and I have connievan envy x


Hi Lucy,
I can't find a way to contact you directly via your blog, so hope you get this comment.
I've had requests for an Afrikaans translation of your neat Ripple pattern...would you mind if I do that? I have a large crochet group on Facebook ("Ons Hekel") (=We Crochet) of whom the majority are Afrikaans ladies and many don't crochet in English.
Hope to hear from you,

I had those 80s editions of Little Grey Rabbit, I LOVED those books :)


What fun! The curtains will look fantastic! Look forward to the finished product.


Lovely lovely lovely! And thanks for the flashback too - Little Grey Rabbit books were my favourite as a child.. :)


Great to see the Connievan back in action!! When I was growing up I loved Sam Pig books, also by Alison Uttley. I had never hear of Little Grey Rabbit. I shall be on the lookout for some books.
