Hi Lucy. I have never posted on a blog before but I just wanted to say that I look forward to your posts and was started to get a little worried when you didn't post for so long. I am so glad you are back. Your ideas and eye for colour is so inspiring. I loved your last pic so much that it sparked my latest projectette :-)

I have missed your posts and yes, I have been worried. I'm so happy to hear you're feeling firmer and to see you posting again! You've inspired me to think about using more colors in my own work and I can't wait to get to the "Ta-Dah!" post!


Que bien que estés de vuelta .Te echamos de menos


It's fine to have news about you and to see you are always alive and healthy, je m'inquiétais tout de même un peu, les temps sont propices à l'inquiétude ... hélas.


Happy to see you back!


Welcome back - ebbs and flows of the creative mind must be respected. You write so well about how it feels. <3


Wellcome back Lucy! I've missed you!!!

Hoorah! Great to see you are back. Was worried there for a minute. Please do look after yourself.

As crafty mema said, we all need some r and r sometimes. I'm just glad you're ok. We will continue to read your blog as always and then some, re-reading many, many of your older posts when you're not right here. You bring so much joy to our lives! We love you!


So glad to see you back Lucy......I love your blog and looking at all the wonderful things you create. I started crocheting last autumn after seeing your striped cosy blanket which now has pride of place on one of our beds. Since then I have made another two and am now on my fourth......all because I came across your blog. Last autumn I too, found myself in a bit of a quandary with all the comings and goings of family life.....and I can quite understand you wanting to bury your head in the sand. Crafting is a great way to wind down though and take your thoughts off to wooly lands. Anyway, here's hoping we see more of your beautiful creations in the months to come. I hope you take heart in knowing you brighten up many of your followers days. Jackie xxx


wonderful to find you back. I have missed reading you blog and its beautiful fill of colour. So glad to hear that illness was not the cause but essential time to restock your blogging batteries. Have a wonderful summer both home and away.

Dear Lucy good to read your lovely blog again. xx

SO glad to see you back! I have truly missed your sunny upbeat color-fest posts! Also glad to hear the mental clouds have parted and the sun can shine again, for us all. I look forward to seeing future posts. <3

You know, Lucy, I have the same problem with all the creative ideas, todo's, appointments, etc, running round in my brain and I know *exactly* what you are talking about. Morning pages helped me tremendously. I learned those from 'The Artist's Way' by Julia Cameron. If you haven't read that book, it is very good. I have also started keeping a planner similar to yours. I have a MAMBI and I pencil in my appointments, todo's and errands, I fill in with anything I did in a particular day, along with notes about what I thought about doing or ideas I had on a particular day. So my planner has become a planner+journal. Not feeling so overwhelmed anymore. Julia Cameron calls it 'brain drain.' I will be thinking about you. I read your later posts that you are feeling better. That's good! Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers, as well, please. I have felt this way most of my life and I am hoping I have finally arrived at a point where I can manage. Have a wonderful summer holiday. I am on your blog quite often, but don't often comment. Felt like I had to here, though! Cheers!!


So glad to see you back. I was a little worried and hoped there were no health complications! Be kind to yourself, although we love to see what you're up to, it's on your own schedule not ours.
So looking forward to seeing your new blanket. I have a lot of odd bits of cotton yarn that i'm desperate to use up and wondering if this is the inspiration I need.


Hello, Lucy! I'm so happy you are back! Have a nice holidays with you family!


Can't wait to see the whole blanket - I adore the edging ! Good to see you're back and raring to go !


Oh it's soooooooo wonderful to have you back we've all been thinking of you. I've really missed your posts as a way to brighten my life up. I have health problems and find that crochet and craft really help in the difficult times and I know all too well how these things can get on top of you. Looking forward to your posts and wishing you a chilled out summer xx

Susan Wilkie

Oh Lucy,I understand how just getting out of the world for a while is necessary and vital to our creative energy. Know that you are missed and I have knocked on your cyberdoor many times, so I am so happy that you are back.


Thought this may bring happy thoughts
