The curtains look fantastic. Hope you have a fab time in Lancashire. Look forward to hearing all about it. F x


Wonderful curtains you've stitched up so painstakingly ~ with the blanket and pillows it's all looking very cheery and festive and very Lucy~like (as you do have a lovely and distinctive style!)
Have a wonderful few days Connie-van-ing!


The curtains look fantastic!


This begs the question Why oh why do caravan manufacturers insist on supplying them with such hideous interiors in the first place? Look forward to seeing your pictures next week!

What a dear little vannie-wannie! And I just love that first photo - all those blues and cow parsley (Queen Anne's lace is a much nicer name.)
At last, after much trying, I'm able to leave comments but only going through Firefox and not Google Chrome. I thought I was just incapable of getting my comments to stick, but someone suggested I tried Firefox and it now works!

In our first little miners cottage, in Ipswich, Queensland (which wasn't much bigger than a caravan), we had apple green walls, louvred windows and green & white linoleum. So, I made cute yellow gingham curtains, with a white broderie anglaise trim along the bottom. Funny, that was 30 years ago, and I had forgotten, until I saw your delightful gingham curtains. Have a wonderful time... I expect your Summer will be as fleeting as ours (we're now in Melbourne, Victoria - you know, "Four Seasons in One Day"). Have fun!

Hi! I enjoy your blog so much. I've just nominiated you for the Versatile Blogger award, which I'm sure you've already received many times, but here it is again :)


Lovely curtains and enjoy your time away, I love going away in our van ☺

Could you take the pelmets down completely and put up a gathered material frill on a wire? Can't see enough detail to know if this would work, but it might give a lighter feel. I always think pelmets look like heavy eyebrows.


It will look great when the whole thing is completed...very colourful and very you...
I love those three pictures above the stove, did you buy them or made them yourself .. Please show a close up of those and your tins too look great in that place...


You are a very patient woman!! They look gorgeous - what a tremendous job.


My Dad was born in Caton, Lancs. Brookhouse to be exact. Then he came to California with Grandma Ada in 1922. It's a a beautiful spot near the river, just upstream from the coast.

Have a great time!

The curtains look amazing and the bunting idea is wonderful! I love seeing pictures of your connievan! What fun! Enjoy the trip! :O) Can't wait to read about your adventures when you return! :O)


i want to thank you for introducing me to a new addiction. after reading your post about your caravan and following you links to a whole new world of cuteness, i can't get enough of those little trailers and all the things that you could do with them!!! i have a pop-up and plan to add some cuteness of my own!


Looking good! Connievan is really coming along. Love the transformation!

I am new to your blog . . . and loving the "feel" of your world!
I visited your region many years ago (like 13 yrs), and knew then I would love to live there.
Thanks to you, I have finally taken a try at granny squares after countless years of crocheting and just finished a baby blanket - thank you for the inspiration.
And . . . if you are ever in the States, look me up in Oregon and we could sit and work squares on the deck of our little cottage house over the little creek and visit!


Such colour in your life- very inspiring

Hope you and your family have a lovely trip! I have a question -- on your May 13th post if you scroll down past the serene pictures of your woods -- there's a picture of some crochet squares. The three on the left have a daisy in the middle. I did some googling and found a few different patterns -- none quite the same (or quite as pretty) as yours. Help! Could you give the directions? Please? (I just discovered your blog and am having so much fun catching up on your life. I'm from San Francisco, CA.)


You're doing such a great job of bringing Connievan into 2012! You should document what you do as a renovation project!!

It looks super already :D


Beautiful! Hope you have a lovely time at the sea!


hola Lucy! me gusta mucho tu atico!

Never fails to amaze me the beauty of your creations! Those curtains and the table cloth is just so lovely. We recently looked at a camper and it was you blog posts that was giving me the inspiration to revive the old thing but alas my skills do not compare to yours! xx


I feel your pain. We lived in a big static caravan whilst building and I made, yes made, lots and lots of very wide but very short curtains in an effort to cheer the place up. Love the gingham, and can't wait to see the bunting!


Looking very pretty in there!


Have a wonderful holiday, you deserve it after all this great jobb :-)
