Hi Lucy,
I've been reading your blog for a little while now and I love it. You're so chatty and inspiring with your creations, and I love your part of the world. I have just moved into a new house and it seems a bit unloved at the moment. I have white walls and polished floorboards. I'm trying to think of something crafty to make to make me feel at home in my new place. Any ideas? I have a bought granny square rug on the back of a chair and a handmade-by-me granny rug on the back of a red chair. I am awaiting a Chesterfileld couch to be delivered so have to think of what to put on the back of that. I find your blog easy to read and very good. I'll see if I can find some inspiration from your crafts for my new house. Keep up the great work. Rosie from Oz.

Hi Lucy, I think I have shared quite a few of your May experiences. I keep seeing lilac in peoples homes, and while I absolutely adore it's scent, I just can't bring myself to have it indoors. My Grandma would be turning in her grave - it was one of her old superstitions of bad luck. Absolute nonsense of course.


Hi Lucy, I really love your blog, just finished my "Lucy" bag, working on the "raindrops" cushion cover right now & dreaming up colour combos for a mandala...thanks for the inspiration x


Hi Lucy, Ive just completed my first ever crochet project following your bag pattern and thought you might like to see the finished bag. Its on my blog
Thank you so much for sharing this pattern

The snaps are lovely and cheerful, may them be such always Lucy.
Children grow fast... I think I soon will be able to also say so.
Have a blessed and sunny day! Hugs!


Dear Lucy, I have the distinct impression that you are "on top" of your act! Good planning, astute execution, health, happiness, love. All topped off with wonderful imagination, creation and an embrassing awareness of all that is lovely in your world. Thank you for making us all feel so good. x


Greetings Lucy. I love your blog and all of your hooky goodness! My first try at the hexagon blanket was a success being though I was a beginner just 2 years ago. I want you to know that I appreciate all that you do. Wishing you a Happy Mother's Day! :)

Totally unrelated Lucy, but have you come across this article about a sea glass beach in California?

Hi Lucy,WOW,what a FANTASTIC post.LOVE the pics and narrative.Just to let you know I have given you a couple of shouts on me blog.Hugs xx


I love, love, love your whole blog and posts, and projects, and photos (!!!), but the reason for today's comment is to wish you a happy Mother's Day! Your posts about your children have been a helpful reminder to me to enjoy my own children more, and the colors of your life have brought more color into mine. Thank you!

I am having a similar feeling about my May too - a lot of little happy moments. Your pictures are so cheerful, as always, I love them.
Lilac is a lovely flower, somehow old-fashioned,we used to have it next to the door to our block. My landlady has lillies-of-the-valley in the garden now and they give out wonderful and very strong smell at this time.


Beautiful photographs. :)


Very pretty


I look forward to reading your blogs so much. I especially loved the cherry blossom and your poncho pictures. Such lovely colours. x


Hi Lucy, I'm not a hooky person but I absolutely love your blog and read it every day. I am truly envious of your creativity and ability to live in the moment and enjoy the world around you. I am going to try to do the same and hope that I can learn to do what you do so naturally. Thanks for the inspiration.


I enjoy your blog so much, the pictures are so beautiful, what lovely surroundings! And of course all the crocheted colorful goodness just makes me happy! I too love the water, and grew up by a beautiful lake which I miss dearly. I just love the sound of the waves and sun diamonds sparkling on the water. Thanks for sharing a bit of your world!

A wonderful walk through your week! I just love seeing all the pictures of your lovely town.


Beautiful guide Lucy. I adore the odor of all Lilac, just isn't this humorous how exactly actually a scent usually takes you personally appropriate back to a certain period nor region nor replace memories?
The swell blanket will be therefore rather, I possibly have not tried that structure yet ... may just have to give it a test.
Scary just how quickly that the children obtain massive .... I virtually get three more than twenty today so it seems as recently they were all only playing around in the home.
Take a gorgeous sleeping within fortnight


As always a lovley ride of a read Lucy x

It's great to be able to appreciate every stage our children go through. My two sons are grown up now but I can still see how they are developing and maturing as they get older.
