What a lovely little celebration! Your garden is just sweet and the colors you have in these photos are jut wonderful --- I just love them.

Hello Lucy, happy summer solstice to you belatedly! I'm sorry I haven't been checking in so often because I thought you might not have time to post so much at the moment, and I had a lovely surprise of 3 new posts to read on my Saturday morning yay! Having read a few comments it seems clear that many of us like to honour the passing of time and it links us all together somehow. Maybe next year we can all make a group marking of the solstice in a hooky way, either sat outside in a sunny garden or snuggled up next to a fire? I hope you're having a sun filled day :-) Love Jo xx

I am positively in LOVE with your new ripple, and am concocting one of my own in my head. Alas, I have a few other projects going (gifts for others, i.e. deadlines - sigh - ), that I must finish before I can give my full attention to planning out and then embarking on a cool, relaxing, blue-y calming seaside ripple. We live right smack in the middle of the US - Missouri, in fact - so we are quite a distance from the nearest beach (9 hours drive is the closest, I believe). The ocean is absolutely my favorite place - doesn't matter to me which coast, so hopefully, when I complete MY Coastal Ripple, it will give me a sense of being there whenever I wrap myself up in it. Thank you so much for sharing the tidbits of your life and your amazing creativity with us!! You are definitely an inspiration!! xxxxx

I woke up at 5 am and after a quick check to see what time the sun would rise ,I got up and went down the garden to sit on our deck on the river,to watch,take pics,contemplate and celebrate .
I was joined by bats...while it was still twilight,a heron...looking for an early breakfast,coypu diving off the bank and swimming upriver and all the dawn chorus....wonderful :)
As I write this ,just after midnight ,a summer storm is raging ...oh the forces of nature....don't you just love it !
Happy summer Lucy,

21st June a very special day in our family.
Our darling son was born on this day
Who would have thought today 28 years on I would be enjoying lunch not only with my wonderful husband and darling son but also with our beautiful daughter in law and their baby girl our Princess Darcy Alice.


Your ripple is coming along nicely...those are such soothing colors.

A day late but the Happy Solstice greeting is sincere, some lovely posts recently and I do similar things in the evening in my little garden, flowers, candles and some patchwork. Life does not get much better.


A beautiful post xx

Happy Summer Solstice from Norway :-)


Happy Summer Solstice Lucy from a non-crocheting follower of your blog, who none the less gets huge pleasure from watching your creativity spill out into your family's everyday life! I will crochet one day......

Liz Jones

Blessed Solstice to you too! I've been mad on the ripple blankets for the past few weeks, following your fab pattern-I started making one for myself a few weeks back which is also going to be the colours of the sea :-)
Thank you for the lovely pattern! x


Belated Happy Solstice to you. The colors in that Ripple blanket are just absolutely delicious. I'm lucky in that my DH isn't a football fan so life goes on as usual in our house. Soon be over and then you can drag him off for walks again! :-) Jude.x

Happy summer solstice!
I really like the fact that you took with you a jar of flowers, it is the small details that makes us happy!


Similar situation here!Did manage evening meal outside, but by about 8pm it was fairly cool. Lovely to have a warm Midsummer though, as recent ones have been horrible weather. Have you ever read I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith? Midsummer rituals feature as part of the story. It's a lovely book set in the 1930s and loosely based on the themes of Pride and Prejudice, with a first person narrator written as diaries. Beguiling book.


Here, in France, we celebrate the summer solstice with music everywhere (la fête de la musique).

Debbie Schroder

Lucy, love your blog and have been so inspired that I am taking a beginning crochet class at my local yarn store.


relaxing & crocheting sounds amazing! I am loving your newest afghan!


I always forget how much further north England is than the mid-atlantic coast of the US. It is twilight by 9 even on the solstice.
I very much like your seaside ripple :) :) :)

Anna-Marie Field

Hi Lucy, So glad your evening turned out to be so happy after all!!! Happy solstice to you too and I am sooo happy we're on our way to summer again!!! Love the colors of your ripple blanket!!! Have a great day!!!!

emma from toadstool tales

Happy summer solstice Lucy. I always celebrate but yesterday it was all too much, hay fever like you wouldn't believe and really sore eyes saw me snuggling up at nine and reading with a cuppa in bed. Not quite what I had in mind ... But its good to be flexible! Emma x


Nice colours in your new blanket.
