I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. These are tender times. I will say a prayer for you. I believe you will see her and be with her again. And you are right, there is a lot to be grateful for. Thank you for all of the sharing you have given these past many years.

God Bless your Mum Lucy & my heartfelt Sympathy to you & your Family.

Hi, Lucy~
I wanted to let you know that I enjoy reading your blogs. They tickle me pink, as they say. You have such a way with words and a beautiful exuberance for life, nature, and just "being". Thank you so much for sharing your love for nature and color with us through your blanket patterns! I want to make all of your blankets, but DH would have a tirade. Plus, I don't know where I would store them all. Tell me...how do you manage to store all of yours?
Looking forward to making the Hydrangea Blanket AND the Moorland Blanket!!!
Hugs, Lynda


I recently saw a modified ripple pattern on Pintrest that was attributed to you but I still can't find the pattern. The poster called it Bean's Ripple and it has arched tops instead of the traditional chevron points or the softer wave type. Almost like half circles. Can you possibly direct me to the pattern?

Hi Lucy
I've recently put away my knitting needles and dug out my crochet hooks. My mojo for knitting had gone. Turned on to your blog site and it's like a great big light has been turned on ( a bit OTT) I'm crocheting your cosy striped blanket using my yarn stash. Popped into Skipton this week whilst staying in Addingham on holiday and purchased all 15 balls to crochet the blanket in the colours you've used. Just love the moorland blanket and now waiting patiently for the hydrangea blanket to be launched today 😍. Colours have always inspired me they are the best medicine.
Thank you so much

Hello to all...especially Lucy,
For some reason, I thought the new Hydrangea was being revealed today. However, I will be patient. I so enjoy seeing the photos of England and areas around there. I would love to travel there one day. The areas you show photos of are just beautiful. I hope all is well with you and your family. Diane


Those tulips are beautiful! I'm so wishing for signs of spring here - today I saw the mallard couple visiting our pond that that was a good one. Looking forward to seeing your hydrangea blanket - I'm plugging along on my Moorland blanket very slowly, so will just observe this CAL!


Hi Lucy,
I love the cityscape of Edinburgh and look forward to seeing the rest but I sure can relate to being a busy mum! I don't know how you find the time to fit everything in; e.g. writing magazine columns and patterns, and planning kits etc. I have written some patterns but getting an opportunity to sit down and put them into a state fit for publication is quite the challenge amidst other urgent demands for my attention. Do you have any tips or insights about managing multiple demands on your time and energy successfully?
It is interesting to learn how photography is an integral design tool for you. How wonderful that your different loves can all come together in a crochet project. Have fun and thanks for the blog update.
Jodie :-)


I always love your regular home making posts please keep them coming ...I have been your subscriber for years .i used to get inspired by your posts and positivity about daily living. I do not crochet so I wait for your regular posts. Please write more and show us more of your cooking and kitchen.


Hi Lucy, just a quick note to say I love that photo of Edinburgh, particularly the colour on the roof tops. It tones nicely with the hydrangea petals in the next photo, I am sure you have done that on purpose, but thought you would like to know that its gorgeous!


Your words and pictures are such a pleasure to spend time with. Thank you!

I've missed your writting....

Lucy, I too love your blog and miss it so much when there's a gap. Your crotchet is inspiring and I love your colour palette. You once blogged about West Bexington in Dorset not long after We had a fantastic holiday there. I live on the beautiful Essex Suffolk border where I am a Vicar and I run a group called Crafty Wo(men) ( so men can come too but they don't) which meets monthly in our fantastic farm shop cafe many of us knit and a few of sum me included crotchet, we also have tapestry and patchwork and spinners. We come from the 15 little churches I look after
Your blog is somewhere I come to to feast my eyes and for time out. Thank you so much for all your sharing God bless, Margaret

Hello form the hills of NW Arkansas. Just wanted to tell you how much I likes your pink tulips....they are a favorite of mine as is your blog. Looking forward to the hydrangea blanket.


Hello from Wisconsin USA! I'm very much looking forward to making your Hydrangea blanket, the colors are pure gorgeousness!!
I'm wondering if you're still planning on doing a Moorland Ta dah post sometime?? I am working on the Moorland blanket currently, so would love to see the finished product in all its beauty:) Thank you for sharing your lovely patterns and a bit of life through your blog.


Hello Lucy!!! I'm your big fan from Brazil. Your crochet it's so lovely that I made some of your patterns. Thank you so much!


Wow, Edinburgh looks amazing, it's somewhere I'd love to go. I shall look forward to seeing the hydrangea blanket as well. Hope you have a lovely weekend. There will be sunshine I think, hurray! CJ xx


Can't wait for the baby bunting! I have lots of leftover yarn to use up!


Argh, you were up here and we did not get a heads up!
I would have loved a chance to say Hi face to face and thank you for your blog. Next time maybe. :)


So glad you're back and with such marvelous photos! The tulips are gorgeous, lucky you. Would love to see more photos of Edinburgh, I've only been there once but loved every minute, such a beautiful city. Can't wait to see the hydrangea blanket!

Oh what beautiful tulips! I have two darker pink ones blooming in my garden (somehow they escaped the squirrels notice).I look forward to seeing your latest blanket, I'm sure it will be stunning! I'm currently working on a tapestry one with hearts in each square all in bright happy colors. Have a great day!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
