Congratulations on your award Lucy!


Thanks for your update, Ruth. A new blanket CAL just in time for the winter - yippee. I love Lucy's color sense. I too was wondering about Lucy and her health. I know a blog takes a tremendous amount of time. I greatly appreciate Lucy's commitment to her blog and always look forward to her posts.


Linda, I've just seen your comment but can't find a way to respond so I hope that you see this. I had also been wondering if Lucy is okay. It turns out that she's busy! She's about to launch a new yarn pack for a CAL. I've seen some posts on Facebook and on Instagram and there are links to these at the top left of this blog.


Wowser What a lovely catch up and huge congratulations to you


I hope so too!


Is this blog dead? I hope not.


Lucy, I see that your Yarndale follow up post still hasn't appeared so I do hope you're not suffering a relapse. There seem to be a lot of nasty bugs about at the moment. Wishing you a good recovery. Regards


Bonjour et bon retablissement.Il est parfois des momoents ou notre corps dit stop.Alors bon repos pour mieux retrouver le chemin des aiguilles et de la laine.cordialement.Joelle


Hope you aren't poorly again. Really missing your posts still waiting to hear about Yarndale as I was unable to attend this year. Also love hearing about life in my native county.


Happy (belated) Birthday to you, Lucy! So sorry to hear how unwell you were but glad you are on the mend. It really is hard to recover from those nasty viruses! And congratulations on your well deserved award. You are such an inspiration to me. I think of you and your blog so often and how you've managed to stick with it for so long. Also cannot wait to see what you design with the cross stitch company. I adore cross stitch as well and can only imagine the adorable designs you come up with.

SADS-Seasonal Affective Disorder Syndrome, added information: There are many new, advanced, stronger full-spectrum lights available now. So that you do not have to have the light on for 8-10 hours a day. Some lights only need to be on half a hour. Whatever full-spectrum light you get, follow the directions specific to that light, and adjust the time according to how it is helping you.


It sounds like you have SADS...Seasonal Affective Disorder Syndrome. It is when you feel sad during the shorter days of the year. It is because you are not getting enough full-spectrum light going into your eyes. The cure is very simple...buy yourself a full-spectrum light or lamp, and just have it on for at least 8-10 hours a day. You do not have to look directly into it, just have it on wherever you are...in the kitchen, while you crochet, etc. The light is just like the light you get from the sun, and it will “lighten” your mood. I know the full spectrum light will help.

Congratulations on your award Lucy. I have followed you for many years and think you are an inspiratiopn. Hope you feel well and enjoy the half-term holiday with your Little People. Best wishes, Viv xx


Congratulations on your awards! I’m tickled pink for you! Thank goodness you are on the mend and feeling better. I so enjoy your blog. You are a lovely bright light! Even when you aren’t feeling your best. Take care of yourself, YOU are necessary!

Bev Farrow

So pleased to have you back Lucy but it's important not to be burdened by the responsibility of the blog, especially when you're feeling below par. This autumn has been difficult with so much rain and not the same number of beautiful crisp days. I suspect you're not the only one who's struggling. Hope you're feeling better and the after glow of Yarndale and your well deserved awards are helping to lift your spirits. Your photos and thoughts bring so much joy and just sharing how we feel can help others who are struggling too - Thankyou for selflessly sharing with us. I'm 3/4 of the way through the Moorland blanket and loving the 'journey' - a reminder of summer and the beautiful colours of nature. God bless xxx

Happy birthday and take it easy. Maybe you need a little hooky time? Just a thought!

Jools  Morgan-Jones

Llongyfarchiadau on your awards, Lucy - they are richly deserved. Your blog and your tutorials have brightened my days and extended my rudimentary crochet skills more than you can know.
And I'm glad you took time for yourself over these last weeks. Not enough of us do that, and the effect on our wellbeing of this horrible "always on" culture shows in rising mental unwellness and stress. Thank you for being a fab example in that, too xx

Julie Harrison

Hope you're feeling 100% better, it's surprising how a cold can knock you for 6. You were probably exhausted after all the work you put into Yarndale, which was brilliant I have to say.
I'm intrigued by your venture into cross stitch design and can't wait to see your design. I used to do quite a bit of cross stitch. I made a sampler by The Historical Sampler Company for the birth of our grand daughter who has just turned 5. I had struggled to find something I wanted to make as a lot of the patterns out there are a bit twee! The kit was beautiful to make and really top quality, I would highly recommend them.
Looking forward to your Yarndale post.
Take care for now xx

Chrissie Jennings

Slightly random place to ask. A question about your Lit Christmas scenes that you had on your mantle last year. I’m trying to get organise and would like to know where you purchased yours from? Thanks


Lovely once more Lucy...keep well xxx


Dear Lucy, congratulations on your awards - there is no page I visit as often as yours and I have done lots of your blankets, wreaths, teddy bears...I made mine too late to get them off to you from sunny Majorca..I have kept making More as I have a lot of Style Craft wool left overs..can I actually sell them via Facebook/Instagram if I donate to your missions? I absolutely love everything you do, your blog and photos are more than an inspiration...wishing I found a group of people here in Spain (Mallorca) to crochet with, some other big fans of yours. Keep safe & warm, can’t wait to see what have in line next, take care


Hi Lucy, so sorry you’ve been so poorly, it has been a vicious bug that’s been doing the rounds but I’m really glad you’re on the mend now. You must take things slowly to fully recover! I was really very sad to have missed Yarndale this year, we had it all planned to come up, lovely room booked again just opposite the railway station station. Prime location for the short stroll through the ‘yarny’ covered park. My partner was going to be off cycling again whilst I was looking around the gorgeous stalls and then we were going to watch the professional cyclists going through Skipton after ( very exciting and such a beautiful place) but last minute circumstances meant we had to postpone till next year ☹️ so am very much looking forward to hearing and seeing all about that.
🥳 Congratulations on your awards ( definitely well deserved) and a belated Happy Birthday 🥳
Thank you for your beautiful picture catch up post, it’s so nice to hear all your news and have definitely missed you. Enjoy half term, take care and take it as easy as you can. Sorry for long essay! lots of love and hugs 🤗 Becki xxx


Congratulations on the two prizes. They are well deserved. To me your blog is an inspiration; not only because of the crochet, but also because of your writings and stories from your daily life.
Well done!
