Welcome back to blogland, Lucy! So glad you are on the mend. I know how viruses can lay us low. Your awards are well earned, Love. Your gorgeous photography puts me right there in soggy, beautiful England and I can smell the wet forest, feel the soft air, and sympathize with your drenched boots. Take care and keep on keeping on. You may be 51 but you look 30!


Many congratulations on your awards, Lucy and a belated happy birthday to you! Sorry you succumbed to the cold bugs doing their rounds, but glad you are feeling so much better. Your autumnal photos are lovely, the colours are stunning. A lot of our trees are still quite green down her, can’t wait for them all to turn!


CONGRATULATIONS on the awards Lucy - absolutely deserved. Enjoy half term week with the family - a time to chill & relax. Annette

It was lovely to meet you too Lucy and Joanne and I are super excited to work with you next year.

Im not a fan of the winter and dark days either - I totally understand your low mood. On a positive note, its lovely to snuggle up with a gorgeous crafty project like crochet or cross stitch.

Im visiting Harrogate next weekend and will definitely visit the Wool shop you mention in your blog - sounds lovely. I really enjoy visiting Harrogate and all the gorgeous towns and villages in the area - you are super lucky to live in such a pretty area.

Much love to you and your family

What a whirlwind your life has been lately. Sorry you got ill but you must have been run-down from doing so much. Time for you to take a break and relax.

Congratulations on your awards. Well done. You bring joy to so many people around the world. You met my mum at Yarndale this year and she said she told you all about how taking up crochet this year has saved my sanity. I live in Australia.

Feel better soon. Sara


Glad to hear you are feeling more like yourself again. Your few days away sounded delightful, even though you travelled home with a "germy" friend. Ah, the walk at Bolton Abbey, which reminds me, I must do some posts on our UK holiday, as I took plenty of snaps around there too. I'd so wanted to walk in the Castle woods and see those willow sculptures, but maybe next time. I'm on catchup with blog reading and my own posts due to a few technical issues, but have done 1 post & will do another this weekend. Have a lovely weekend, take care 7 huggles.


Congratulations, dear Lucy... You are wonderful. A big hug from southern Spain

Congratulations on your awards, much deserved. Enjoyed reading your blog, and love the photo's. Have a healthy, happy restful half term.

Hi Lucy,
I am in Louisiana and have been following you for two years and have completed 3 of your blankets. I cannot say enough good things about the things you are doing. Love, love, love the things you create. One day I hope to make a trip to Yarndale. You have help me through a lot of bad situation with the relaxing crochet patterns you create. Take care :)

Dear Lucy , sorry you have been under the weather , although I have to disagree with your lack of excitement about the darker daylight hours - we love it as its a sign that Christmas is on its way. Christmas is special as our first born arrived just after midnight and has a Boxing day birthday to go along with my birthday new Years Day and my hubbys on New Years Eve - a very busy week for us
I love your blog and all your photos - as a native of Dorset I yearn to go back and have a 5 year plan so will be starting to check out some of the lovely places you talk about as My Dad used to deliver around Dorset as a lorrydriver so there are many places that mean something in my heart too. Looking forward to your next blanket - and excited for a reveal of the colour scheme to see what its going to be

So glad you're feeling better Lucy. I thought something must be wrong when you hadn't blogged for quite some time. At least you went on some nice excursions before feeling poorly and thank you for sharing them with us. I loved Yarndale. Was there for my first time and only stayed 2 hours on the Sunday as it was pouring down and I had to travel on 2 trains back to Darlington. I'll be back next year though!


Sorry you've been feeling unwell. You've had some good days out though, so I hope you've felt well enough to enjoy them. Wensleydale looks beautiful, and no doubt London was brilliant as well, it looks like such fun. I hope you're feeling completely better very soon. I always feel a bit of a dip in Autumn, sometimes I think just because of the change in the season. Also fighting off viruses here. Hope you have a wonderful half term. CJ xx

Lucy! I was in London at the beginning of October, I didn't miss you by much. I saw Sean Lennon once while I was there, he walked right past us. I was thrilled but not half as much if I had recognized you!😄 You deserve every award given.

Kristine S

A belated but hearty HAPPY BIRTHDAY Lucy❣😍🤗

Barbara Seiver

Congratulations on your awards - well deserved! I share my time with cross stitch, too. You should know that it has become a Spring and Autumn tradition to change out your blankets (DH adores them): Coast in the Spring, Cozy in the Autumn.

Rosie Rogers

Hi Lucy, many congratulations on your awards. Sorry to hear you have been unwell but are now improving. I have sorely missed you and your blog. Lovely blog today though, you have cheered up my Friday whilst working alone at home.

Kate T

Simply delightful post, heartwarming, congratulations on your award well deserved, glad you are recovering xx

Lynne Stankard

Hi Lucy, Welcome Back, you've been sorely missed I just don't know where to start - yes I do CONGRATULATIONS on both your well deserved awards - think I'd walk round with one under each arm!! So sorry you were laid so low by that awful virus - people on this side of the Pennines were laid low too. It seems to be everywhere.
Jealous of your Ally Pally trip - I love going there for their craft 'does' we tend to play safe travel down the day before late afternoon (cheaper train tickets) then settle in our hotel and have a nice meal somewhere. So next day, taxi to A.P. we're there nice and early, and we don't leave until they brush us out of the door! Another nice dinner and night in hotel - then a relaxing journey home midday'ish. I know it's costly but we reckon it's our well deserved trip for busy crafters!!
So pleased you managed a trip home - I love the sea down there - and even in the rain, the softer colours are so pleasing.
Thank you for the link to the Historic Sampler Co. I've been on their site and all I can do is drool - they have lovely patterns. Very excited for you.
Hope your return to good health is still ongoing and as the days go by you'll feel so much stronger. Hugs Lynne xx


So pleased you are feeling btr these viruses are awful.
Beautiful pictures and post as usual thankyou. Congratulations

Winwick Mum

Loved reading this - we did have a lovely 24 hours in London - and you've got some gorgeous photos there. It's a shame about the bug, but so often that's the case when you've been very busy ... it's just there waiting for you to slow down! Here's to a healthy half term, my award-winning friend :) xx


Congratulations on 2 counts! Happy Birthday and well done getting awards! So sorry you have been unwell and wish you a very speedy recovery💕


Dear Lucy
Lovely blog as always. So sorry you have been poorly and hope you feel much better soon. Xxxx
