I have missed you! So glad you are back!


Hi Lucy, looks like you had a wonderful time in France. Your photos are gorgeous and revealing. I've never been to Provence but would love to go there now. Maybe you could run/host a similar week in England sometime in the future? My favourite place is St Ives in Cornwall as the light there is truly magnificent - and the quaint cobbled streets and fishermans cottages delectable. Hoping to start a crochet/knit and natter time here in Taunton soon.....


Hi Lucy !! Thank you for doing such a lovely blog full of colours,ideas and to share with us all your exciting adventures !!!
I have got a question for you and for everybody on here: i have started crochet just a few month ago and i love it but i have been suffering for a few days from shoulder and upper back pain,has anybody else been feeling that?? Maybe i went a bit mad wanting to finish something quickly or it is a bad posture?? Thanks for helping!! ;-)


Can't wait to see the reveal of your 'mystery project'. Your work is amazing to look at, so cheerful and eye poppingly gorgeous.


So glad you are back. I too am addicted to your blog and really missed you x

After I read the itinerary for your crochet adventure in France, I knew you would need to recover & before you would have time to report on it. So glad to hear that it was a great success. Looking forward to hearing more. Are you planning to do another one?


Oh I have missed you Lucy, but what a treat to find your lovely words and pictures, so glad you had a wonderful time, and cant wait for the next instalment! x


Welcome back!
Lovely photos!
The food looks delicous!


But ... if you want to drink espresso let me send you a true Italian moka, with genuine Italian coffee that takes you straight to heaven! it gives me great pleasure, it would be a small way to thank you <3 you have instilled in me a real, great passion for crocheting and I want to thank you for this :D
a very big hug ;D

Welcome back, Lucy!it has been a wonderful journey, you transmit emotions in every word and every picture :D traveling is gorgeous, your enthusiasm for the giant tomatoes reminded me how happy I was to eat scones in Scotland ... sometimes we forget that what is normal for us can be special for those who don't live in our own place, and this is nice because it makes me more appreciative of what I have!
Now we are waiting for the French Project!
a big hug

I think you need to post the attic view next to the french bedroom view - how astonishing! Did you take the hills with you so you wouldn't be homesick?

This time of year is my favourite where we are (west of Toulouse), beautiful sunny days, log fires in the evening and a bit of crochet thrown in the mix.

I have the same Nespresso machine but I have just run out of capsules, dammit.

I loved this .


This has been a week very busy for you and me, all nights visiting your attic to look for an entrance of your wonderfoul travel. Yupiiii! You're back!!!!!!!!!


Oh yesss how great that you're back!! I can't wait to read all about your adventure, it must've been so much fun! :-) xxxx


Seeing the photograph of all that wool on the table made me laugh. France has been well and truly Attic 24ed!



Oh Lucy, Provence is my dream, thanks for such a great description.


I'm so glad to read and enjoy every detail of your time spent in Provence!
I'll be looking forward to the next installment.


l truly am so envious... Well done.. You deserved the break... X X X
Best Wishes,
New England,


Wonderful photos Lucy. You really have a knack for colour and composition but then that should be no surprise :) The first pic of the olive grove really took my breath away. No wonder Van Gogh was inspired. It looks like great inspiration for a crochet project. I'm glad to hear you sound so relaxed and restored.


Really beautiful Lucy!!!!

Drooling here in Virginia over the bread, cheese, those tomatoes, the yarn... Oh and your Van Gogh picnic! Wow!

i made your tiny flowers many times and am putting them on tee shirts, baby hats, and am now doing a few in all white to put on a navy/white layette set. thanks for the pattern posting.

I dream in color and your yarns are the color of my dreams...funny that i don't crochet in those colors..I guess i don't have your eye for mixing colors.
