cozy up around that fire!!! so inviting!!! I still love your owl--even though he's now winking! Cute!


We are also getting cold.... And with "only" two blankets I really need to make more! Your granny square in one colour looks lovely!


The fire looks lovely! I too have a rule that the fire must not be lit until October - nor can the heat be switched on. But yesterday morning was quite cold in Minnesota so even before I read your post the fire was lit.
So lovely to have you back!


hi again!!

My Sass-Belle Owl cushion is currently one eyed, too. I showed him your picture so he can see that it's a look that all the cool owls are rocking.


Hi Lucy, I'm new to blogging and new to crochet but already in love with your blankets and your blog! I'm halfway through my first ripple blanket - can't wait to snuggle under it in front of the fire this winter! Also have two more blankets started - I wonder just how many blankets it's possible to have in my little cottage? Only one way to find out I suppose! x


We had to start the furnace in Michigan today! Even though my boys are teenagers now, we all have had our own cuddle blankies for a while. Not as beautiful as yours but suited for each of us. We also all spend most of our home time in pajamas! LOL My oldest had a girlfriend who came over and said "You guys are always in your pajamas!" ;)


I love lighting the fire ... we lit our Rayburn cooker yesterday for the first time this year ... I so love it for it's many talents... a warm cosy kitchen and living room, a lovely roast chicken dinner (with some help from me, it's not that clever) and oceans of extremely hot water ... heaven ... Bee xx


Lovely to see you back again. Sounds like a lovely cosy weekend. Your fire looks gorgeous. Unfortunately we don't have one but we have a lovely little electric fire that looks like a little log burner. It's fairly realistic and does make the room look cosy but not quite the same as the real thing. I've been lighting lots of candles though to get the glow of real flames. Fiona x


It's definitely autumn now. Time for lots of lovely blankets and pyjamas! Love your blankets!

Hi Lucy, I absolutely love reading your blog...from the projects (you inspired me to give crochet a go and now I'm 'hooked'!) to the beautiful pictures. Your posts always make me smile...I adore the little glimpses into your life you give us - so very different to life here on the east coast of Australia. Snuggle up with that fire!

Cozy, snuggly weekend days are the best. Our family seem to have their favourite crochet blanket too, which I love : )


I'm sure it was this time last year I was looking at our fire and thinking "Should I...Shouldn't I?" Well we still need to get a man out to check it over (as it hasn't been used in years) But I'm crushing on open fires and hot cups of tea when I get home from work in the winter!

lovely to see you back Lucy, have missed your cheerful words.


Lovely COSY post Lucy. I especially love this time of year. I don't like winter but love the changing colours of Autumn. Unfortunately we don't have a fire or wood burner which I would love to own. So I have to settle for central heating and the warm glow of candles.

Loved your post about the little tinker. The smell of freshly baked lemon drizzle cake would have been heavenly.


oh i love your last photo - its my idea of heaven! - the fire - i wish i had one, and is definately on my wish list when i have my own space; the cosy sofa covered in blankets - which have to 100% wool - gotta love that warmth, and i spy your TV is on a chest of drawers - something i am wanting to do for the extra storage it provides. i keep my eye on ebay for something suitable.


We opted for cozy here yesterday too and fired up the central heating for a few hours - what a difference it made :) I've been wearing socks for a few days as my feet were getting so cold :(

The upside the excuse to crochet more rounds onto my latest blanket! Keeps you warm whilst you work :)


Hello Lucy and guests
It´s good to hear from you again...
I´m writting from the South of Spain and it´s very weird for me reading in your blog that you lighted the fire this past weekend, mostover because yesterday we went to the beach and of course we were swimming and sunbathing. The weather in my town is still very, very hot and I need fresh air...
I love reading your posts, you are an inspiration with your crochetting things and your crafts.
Thank you for being there.

P.s. I am really sorry if I made a mistake but as you can imagine, English is not my original language...

So happy you r back ... Can't wait to hear what u HV been so busy with... I hope u r having fun!


Oh! I am so glad you are back. I've have missed you and your fab pics. I so wish I had your chilly weather. I am in 103 degree heat and 60% humidity. Gah! I love my sunny southern California, but this is really too much! So post some of those gloomy grey chilly day pics for me to daydream of while I keep cool in the air-conditioning.


very cosy ,we used to live in an old house with an open fire and i really miss it. i've got lots of lovely cosy blankets as well that i've made however no little people left now so its just me and two dogsa and a cat that benefit plus of course hubby.


I do love cooking in my pyjamas on sunday morning, It gives me a feeling of endless time and freedom. I find your blankets so cheerful and warm So they must be wanted!


oh i love your fire and warm cosy toes, brilliant on the cashmere blankets, i would like to cuddle under one of those too!

I just thought the owl was winking!

lovely....so glad you explained the black oval things in the bucket. I thought it was possibly coal and couldn't believe that was possible :-)
