A dreary sort of day here as well, your weather has made it across the pond I think. Our weekend was crisp and cloudy, but we still managed an outing, to a Native American farmstead, with Native dancing to the flutes and drums in full head dress and all, a lovely time of it. Also made your lemon drizzle cake over the weekend.Yum! You always choose the yummiest yarns! Can not wait to see your wreath come together! I finished an ottoman cover with pom pom fringe, last night love it! Looking for other things now to add pom poms to. lol Happy lazy cozy week!


Oh, how funny - today Drops Big Merino arrived my home as well!! I ordered it a week or so ago and was really looking forward to find it in my post box!! I chose the colours lavender, pistachie and off-white. Not for an autum wreath (though a great, great idea) - but for a sweater for my little girl :-)


How do you do t? You must have magic fingers to conjure up those flowers while enjoying home made muffins. Both the flowers and the muffins made my mouth water. Can't wait for the tutorial on the flowers. Oh yes, and I know the answer to my question - years of practice,


Such a lovely warm and colourful post, we've just about survived last night weather here by the straights of Dover and now the skies blue and it's sunny again with a blustery wind perfect Autumn weather. xx


What a cosy post!
I love the sunflower.
I'm looking forward to see your autumnwreath.


So beautiful Lucy! I wish we had a fireplace to cozy up next to!

Glad to hear you didn't get blown away by that storm that hit the UK I was reading about yesterday!

Happy Monday,

Brrr it's chilly isn't it?thanks for the recommendation on the candles, my favourite indulgence after chocolate!


Wonderful photos - and the colours of the yarn are amazing! The last photo looks particularly inviting (even though I don't drink!)


Hello! Thank you for all of your inspiration. I am in the US and teaching myself to crochet. I've been a knitter for quite some time but I would love to make some granny square blankets. I have a love for cotton. You have mentioned in some of your posts using cotton yarn. What brand do you use? What is your favorite go to yarn. I want to know because I love all of the color you use :)


I need a candle and a fireplace. I think your flowers both look beautiful. I can hardly wait to see the wreath all done with all your beautiful colors.
Happy Monday


Lovely! We do have a bit of sunshine here- which is a nice change after the start to the day when That Storm hit us!

Looking lovely and cosy there Lucy....yes weather is very yucky but here in the East Midlands we've got away with the worst of it. We've just finished our half term here and the girls are having their last day of freedom before school starts tomorrow! We've just got back from London which was brilliant. I'm looking forward to your Autumn wreath, I really must work out how to crochet flowers, I get in such a mess with them! :) x

Glass of something sparkly, open fire, lots of lovely yarn, what else could you possibly want?! xx


I'm missing Autumn so much! We are in our Spring now but I find the older I get, the more I like the colder months! Don't care much for sweating and being hot and sticky! Love your flowers and cannot wait to see the wreath


...and the wool is absolutely delicious!


Ooooh, pretty pretty!! Loved this post, the muffin looks scrumptious, your flowers are adorable, and the fire is utterly heartwarming! Have fun with your fam this week!


I love all your creation ^.^ I'm curious to see the news with the big merino!



I've seen the pictures of your flowers float by on facebook. Beautiful! They will make a nice addition to any autumn wreath :)

Joanne Morrow

I absolutely love your site! I enjoy reading it so much! The yarn for your wreath is beautiful and the colours look great together. I'm anxious to see pictures of it done. Thank you for always posting such a enchanted site! Love it!!!!


Baking is getting underway here, as the weather becomes colder and it's nice to have the oven on. Earlier today I looked up your flapjack recipes, as the first one I found online and tried last week was WAY too sweet, even for me! Now I must convert measurements (or buy a scale) so I can try both your versions. Fingers crossed :)


Hi Lucy
Lovely post. I saw that you had some Drops wool when I visited your studio over Yarndale weekend and really loved the range of colours. The aran looks really love and I can quite understand your yearning for something warm to wrap around in these chillier days. have you seen the pattern on the cover of the last Simply Crochet magazine ? Its the most grogeous, hat/scarf/wrap - and the ears just finish it off !
Happy hunkering ...

Only you could find colour-changing fircones..lol! x


The colors you've picked, the scents you described, the first pic of the tree, the sunflowers ~ all I can say is WOW! Today your blog is blessing for all the senses! Thank you...
