Hi Lucy! I have enjoyed reading your stories for several years, following along from the US. Imagine my excitement when we had this opportunity almost a year ago, to move to Lincoln. I've been gleaning from you blog, information on day trips and beaches to visit, and the first weekend of half term we finally made it to Bolton Abbey! It was a most familiar walk I made with my family and though the bluebells had mostly faded,the walk was just as breathtaking with wild garlic! Who knows, I may have passed you along the way! Thank you from my soul for sharing yours.


Lucy, please tell me what the name of the blanket draped over the chair in the photo with a wreath and the paper/yarn samples taped to the wall. The blue trim on that blanket is stunning.

I have searched through your patterns but can not find.

Please please let me know.

Thanks ~ Arlene


Hi Lucy, Thanks for writing such lovely stories. I enjoy it very much, and it inspires me! Since you wrote about matching socks, I wanted to let you know I found a nice website: www.socklady.com This lady states: "Life's too short for matching socks."
Sounds like a good reason to make and wear different socks!

Just catching up on your blog and so excited to see my dear friend Catherine Woodall on here. She makes the most beautiful jewellery. I've been lucky enough to get two sets of her stacking rings for my birthday - one ring from each family member. I love her acorn pendants and I'm glad you do too.


Sounds like a great weekend break in a beautiful part of the world. Great time with Little Lady. Blanket will have lots of memories from all the different projects.


I think you live in paradise! I love your photos of where you live. This is my favourite time of year because of how bright green everything is. It's so beautiful even on a cloudy day.

I love your stash-buster granny blanket, i too am working on one, but using 2 round granny squares, they are only 5cm across, so tiny but gorgeous looking. I am hoping for it to be finished in time to give to me sister for her new baby, due in 6 weeks.

Just on catchup Lucy and found such a lovely post. I do like Saltaire and what a great festival for showcasing local talent. Love the acorn necklaces. The whole weekend sounded wonderful with your walk and meeting up with neighbours. Take care.

Another lovely, inspiring post and beautiful pictures! Thank you, Lucy!


How lovely! You sound good! I hope you are feeling better...it feels good to feel good. Have a lovely summer!


Sounds like you've had some lovely times lately. That makers fair looks amazing and building looks breathtaking! Thanks for sharing ~ Sierra


I was there yesterday and Saturday as well. I love the Maker's Fair. The woman who sold the handmade shirts and I had a lovely conversation about handmade clothing as I made nearly all my tops now! It was delightful! Such a pleasure!


I'm having such fun watching this blanket unfold! I've got a rainbow ripple in progress myself at the moment, and between that and a few other blankets I've got loads of scraps that are going to need a home. I don't know that I'll do something exactly like this, but it's at least got my mind whirring with ideas!


Ohhh I was excited when I saw your first photo Lucy and recognised Saltaire. It is such a fascinating place and many happy hours have been spent exploring the village, the Hockney gallery in the mill, picnicking in Robert's park before returning up the phenicular railway to Shipley Glen. I really enjoy reading your blog, but particularly love your beautiful photos of the area I grew up in. Catherine Woodall's jewellery is stunning!

I'm glad to see the sunshine gracing you, Spring is really an iffy time for weather. That arts festival looked so inspiring.. I do hope you got a necklace for yourself. Your walks around your home are gorgeous with the woods and streams. And wow.. the blanket is going to be an eye-popper! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Your weekend sounds lovely Lucy. I always enjoy reading your posts. I'm excited to see the progress on your blanket. Really great colours!
Have a nice Tuesday.

Sweet greetings from Holland,

Wow, the inside of that Victorian house is beautiful. Makes me want to move to the UK!

Always a wonderful post from you! Looking forward to hearing about the new blanket. I still have a whole 18 balls of that wonderful DK yarn from your Lucy Packs! When is Yarndale this year? You haven't talked about it and I think it's usually in September and that is coming up. Thanks for giving us the great photos of your town and countryside.

I'm sure Little Lady was so excited to accompany her Momma to the faire. Just the sort of thing to awe a child and make her think the world is so full of wonderment and great things. So great to get the little ones involved early on as I know yours are.

I was wondering how Little B is doing these days? The last time I saw any part of him was his chubby little baby toes. I'm sure he's beyond that stage now and a thriving young lass. I just loved your posts when he was a little guy.


Jus tsat down for lunch and saw your post. Tinge of excitement on reading any of your posts thank you Lucy.
What a lovely weekend you had ohand such beautiful photographs.
