Blue sky in Weymouth today,hope you have a lovely weekend in Dorset with your family.Glad to hear you are feeling better,your blog is so inspirational to everyone!
Can't wait to crochet your new Cupcake blanket roll on April! Xx


I love the wee sheep!! I do the same things with magazines - stock piling the seasonal ones to pull out when I am ready to think about them.


About 5 years ago my daughter made a basket with beautiful eggs for me. Since we have moved I cannot find it. I always put it on our dining table, so I am trying to make some mini chiclets to take it place. Have leftover yarn from some of your blanket kits. Your home looks very spring like and ready for Easter. Maybe I can make the deadline for Sunday as all of my children & grandchildren will be here. Happy Easter to you and your family.


Love those gorgeous yummy colours on your new blanket Lucy. Looking forward to the post about it. Hope our Dorset weather brightens up for your stay - currently not so good but hopefully the sun will reappear next week! Your posts and photos are so inspirational, thank you. Dawn

Have a lovely Easter! Your home always looks loved and welcoming. I haven't got any Easter decorations really, we tried to make some last year but it didn't go well! So I have to live vicariously through the more ordered lives of other people (I honestly forget about Easter every year!).


So glad Little B is on the mend. We are very ready for the Easter break as well. I know exactly what you mean about magazines. It's especially annoying with gardening magazines when they're so far ahead. I write for a little local magazine which goes to press during the first week of the month and is out around 15-20th of the month, so March's issue came out just a few days ago. It's how it should be I think. Wishing you and yours a lovely Easter Lucy. CJ xx

I really love this post! My two favorite magazines that I subscribe to religiously are Crochet! and Country Sampler. I love them both for different reasons. Like you I don't like reading or celebrating a whole month early. That is so crazy. I have been enjoying my little bit of gardening this year as well. Waiting for them to blossom is always so much fun. Normally I am a bright color girl but I really am liking your cupcake blanket. That will be a fun one to do. Lots of love and hugs to you Lucy!!


This is my favourite time of the year I love Spring and Easter more than Christmas, I put the Easter decs up today including a new bunny bunting and my wreaths back in Spring mode with a few additions have a wonderful Easter holidays.

Oh Lucy, what a lovely cheery post. I too love those 2 mags, although here in Oz they are 2months behind and I try not to buy them as much as I used too. My favourites at the moment are both Landscape and Landlove and also some of the English crafts magazines. I'll being waiting for your Cupcake pack to come on sale and definitely buying it. Thanks, have a lovely Easter and take care.


I want that sheep!!!!!!!!


I cant get enough of the jelly jars with eggs in them, they are so cute .. I currently have a few of those jelly jars filled with lemon drop candies..

Happy Easter! We are not celebrating ours until May as that is the Orthodox Easter. But we are enjoying sharing everything with friends. I have just found your blog and am rediscovering the joy of crochet. My Cypriot Granny taught me the traditional art of lace crochet when I was about 5. I fought and won against breast cancer 2014 and during the treatment I created a lovely crochet bed spread. I am now making blankies for neo natal units locally. Love your colours and look forward to seeing you at Yarndale. Just booked for the whole week in Skipton.

Lucy I don't know how else to contact you.
I'm having a crisis-- I spoke to you and bought your lovely lilacy blanket kit at Yarndale, I've saved it till now to do on my Easter holiday break in Wales-- I've got the wool all safe but I can't find the pattern. Aaaaaaaaaagh!
Is there any way you could possibly send it to me.
Please , please please😕😕😕😕😕😕

Petra Baker

Happy Easter, Lucy and family, hope you have a good break! Just love your crochet journey and your Easter decorations are simply fantastic😊. Looking forward to seeing your blanket in full glory

I thoroughly enjoyed all your Spring-y photos and sharing your magazines with us.. and LOVE the colors in your new blanket.

((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Happy Easter Lucy x Love your mantelpiece display and I'm with you re the magazines having articles so early on, in fact I refuse to buy any of them with Christmas articles in as I just don't like looking at them once the season is over. Please give my love to Dorset hopefully it won't be too long before I visit there again.

I so agree with you about the magazines, it's even worse when you subscribe to them as they seem to come earlier than in the shops. Love the decorations every year I say I'm going to do Easter decorations and then Easter is here and I have done nothing about it.
Can't wait for your new kit to go into Wool Warehouse, you really have inspired me to embrace colour, Something I have struggled to do in the past.


Happy Easter - I decorated a crazy willow branch from my crazy willow tree a couple of days ago - spray painted it pastel pink and now it has tiny chicks nesting in the branches and some pretty glass hanging eggs - wish I could remember where I got them from! The blanket looks very Spring-like and cup-cakey!! A


Lovely decorations Lucy, thank you for sharing.

I subscribe to several, and I do mean several, British magazines. They include the two you featured and several others. They are all done so well compared to our American issues. It's such a treat to look forward to reading them every month.

Glad to hear Little B is feeling better. Enjoy your Easter break (and take lots of pictures for us).


I am in the middle of crocheting a Easter chick I have happy memories as a child on a Easter holiday seeing fluffy day old chicks a host of golden daffodils sudden snow shower necessitating a roaring log fire .
Singing in Church sharing the joy of "The Lord is risen ! " He is risen indeed " Chocolate eggs oh and a new egg cup with a decorated boiled egg complete with egg cosy and toasted fingers of bread. Daffodils tulips primroses violets. pussy willows and catkins decorating the house .Miniature Garden tomb. for Sunday school.
I wonder what every one else makes and enjoys at this special time.


You just inspired me to take out more of my easter goodies. I treated myself to a vintage ceramic bunny sitting up at a country shop last weekend but there is more stuff to take out. I love your magazine pictures. Thank you for showing. Your mantel screams Easter and your completed blanket looks beautiful! Can hardly wait for your upcoming pictures. Thanks for posting!

Love the Spring of your home...and that yarn....gorgeous.


You sound as if you're nearly back to normal, health wise, Your enthusiasm is shining through.
I have the opposite problem with Country Living UK, by the time I see them it is a month late! The bookstore here in the states will have the March edition in April. I love it anyway, late or not.
Your lovely Easter decorations have inspired me to pull out my bits and bobs and get the house decorated.
Any Connievan trips planned?
Thanks for the eye candy.


Feel inspired to get down my own Easter stuff even though the weather now here in Dorset is grey, cloudy and cold (just for a change) never mind we can make it all springy inside!


Love the Easter mantelpiece. Very colourful. I am about half way joining the squares in the Harmony granny Square blanket. Love the Palma Violet colour. In some lights it looks grey, but in others it is a delicate lilac. Beautiful.
