Lucy we loved the look of your cake and espically the butterflies. I ordered some straight away but they don't look and lovely as yours. Where did you purchase yours from? I have completed many of your crochet patterns and love hearing your news- thank you


Sounds like a fabulous way to spend your day! Summer is a tad away just yet for us ...... in the midst of Winter here :)


Blessed be, Lucy :D


Thank you for a lovely summery post, Lucy! xxx

Hi Lucy, I absolutely love your blog! I have printed out some of your tutorials and have been trying out your teeny tiny flowers and hearts. I have made little gift tags and attached the crochet flowers/hearts. Your cake looks amazing and your gorgeous photos of your surrounding area. Your talent inspires me everyday.I have just started a blog and I would love it if you could give me some tips/advice? Also take a look at the post about your blog and the little crochet tags. I would love to know what you think? www.theartfullplace.blogspot.com

Lovely post. Just wanted to let you know I am making your blooming flower cushion. Your tutorial is easy to read and follow. My cushion is coming together very easily. Co at wait to get it finished. Love it.

I was completely depressed today, maybe it's the deep plum color I'm crocheting with today, and finally (duh) remembered to look up my favorite blog, Attic 24,for a spot of joy and I did find it. Thank you for the beautiful solstice blessing and the reminder it's okay to hang out in the jammies. Maybe tomorrow I'll bake a cake too. Gracias, Amiga.

Querida Lucy, feliz dia para ustedes, se ve que la pasaron de maravilla, me gustaría bastante poder comprar esos hilos, pero no se si envían a Costa Rica.

PuraVida ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡


Lovely lovely post; inspiring as always but can I be a little pedantic and remind people that Midsummers day is actually the 24th June and not the 21st which is the shortest day - I know because 24th is my birthday


I celebrated the Winter solstice and thought how great it is that the days will slowly get longer. My daughters made lunch for Father's Day and made him feel special. You have such lovely places to picnic. X


...cakey recipe? ;-)


lovely post; a recognition that intermingled between life's disappointments and challenges there are myriad reasons to be thrilled to be on this earth at this time in this place. We may have personal reasons to wish to be elsewhere but we can rejoice in the miracles of this world. Thank you Lucy, for being a voice of kindness, clarity and responsibility of purpose.

Great post! Must have been such a lovely day, and what a great idea, a cake, of course a cake is always a great idea for celebrate...or not. I've always wanted to do something special in summer solstice, a cake is the perfect choice.

We make Christmas cakes, Easter cakes, birthday cakes, I-need-to-eat-cake cakes - why not a Summer Solstice one too? That's a lovely blessing; it is a special thing to feel so connected to the Earth xx

Lovely way to have spent the summer Solstice.

What a lovely way to celebrate the day and such a beautiful spot to do so.
That cake looks amazing.


I love your web page and all that you post! It cheers me with all your colors!


Winter solstice here in Aus. Minus 0.2 degrees this morning. Everything is rather frozen, so loving your beautiful views by the babbling brook. By the way, I am onto my fourth pair of socks. It's all your fault. 😜


Ohh that river looks perfect.


That cake looks delicious. I have to say I love your blog Lucy and have made lots of blankets since I started reading it, I may have bought another 40ish balls of yarn last night for the next two I have planned, but I need to finish my granny sqaure one first :D


Oh, and are those bubbles or wee birds I'm seeing? ;)


What wonderful childhood memories you are giving to your children Lucy. Good mom and dad!


with your skill of photography and your love of colours I do hope you enter the Countryfile Photo comp this year the theme is : Colours of the Countryside.... exactly what you take!


You really do live in an enchanting place Lucy. I know that cake was delicious.
