Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos. I look forward to your blog posts every week. They always make me smile. I hope that you had a good week this week. Hugs Rose x


I'd love to have been locked down in such a beautiful place!
This landscape is so so so beautiful. Can you tell me where do you live. I'd love to visit this wonderful scenery next time I travel to England.

I love all your work, so full of colour it makes me feel so happy only to see it. Colour transmits happiness to me.


What a lovely blog post! Thank you, thank you, thank you.:-)
Congratulations on that you have managed to endured 8 weeks of Lockdown now. Hope the restrictions can be taken away soon. Here we have the same motto as before "Keep the distance, wash your hands, don´t visit the elderly, and be patient above all".

Hi Lucy,

Thank you as always, for opening your attic window, I`ve been enjoying reading for years now.
I was hoping to finally finish my Dune, during this lockdown, will probably happen now, since I broke my foot last weekend.
I also really enjoy pick up limes on YT, as well as "the fairly local family", you might like them too.
"Boho Berry" has great planner content,I like "epic gardening" for growing food and "Summer Rayne Oakes" has great plant videos. I hope there`s something between these that will bring you joy :)


Glad you're staying safe. My wife went vegan this year, it's been a little challenging but she feels much better for it.


Hi Lucy! I was born and bred in New Zealand and as children we blew on the dandelion seed heads to make a wish! Love your blog by the way! I have been following you for a number of years now and your blog gives me a lot of comfort!

Hello Lucy, I so know what you mean about flip-flopping from one thing to another. I thought I would crack on with a load of sewing projects, but I have only been mending. I did however manage to start off a sourdough starter(mainly due to the lack of yeast in the shops). I now have a compulsion to make bread every day, utterly delicious, maybe not so good on my waistline! My crochet is rather stop start too, my blanket is going to be a Christmas present, so a bit more start needed than stop. Never forget the me time, it's just a full stop in the paragraph of the day. xxx

Hi Lucy!!!
Thank you for sharing pictures of your daily walks especially the ones with the beautiful animals. The sheep are my favorite. You do live in such a gorgeous place.

Hi Lucy, it's lovely to read your blogs. I'm glad that you and your family are well. I'm trying to finish a blanket that I originally started 5 years ago. Not good I know but, I have made other blankets for new babies born in the mean time 😊 Stay safe. Take care. Melissa

Dear Lucy- I have read your blog now for over three years and you always manage to write so eloquently- and with humility and love - and I just am in awe of how you manage to sum up the atmosphere and the feelings in your life. I often feel like Im living a parallel life having three children myself - 2 who are in the their teen and then a much younger boy who is now 9 but sadly I am not such a gifted Crocheter and only came to crochet 3 years ago now. Here in the Netherlands we are gradually coming out of Lockdown but my Lethargy is prevailing. I had promised myself I would finish my sweet Pea rogue blanket which was for my daughter to take to University but it looks like she will not go now as the British Unis are looking like they will continue online and I was planning on starting the Coastal for my youngest. However I have started 4 other projects and have settled on the positivity mandalas to send as gifts to my family and friends still in Lockdown in the Uk - I have completed 2 now and so excited to get their phone-calls when they receive them, It had always been on my list to add a comment here to let you know how you brighten my life with your blog and photos and wonderful patterns - Thank You Thank You Thank You.


Hi Lucy,
Thankyou for your honest words.
I am lucky i”m back at work, but still like to have 5 mins alone in the house. Felt bad thinking it but glad i”m not the only one.
I spend alot of time looking at kitchens:) we are rebuilding our house (5 year plan) so its something i”m always busy with.
Do you know arne and carlos? I float between you guys.
They are taking a break at the moment but there’s enough youtube blogs to feed any me time.
Take care ❤️

Hi Lucy...my daughter who lives in Birmingham told me about your blog before Lockdown. I live in Fiordland, NZ and I have so enjoyed journeying with you at this time....have made the oatcake breakfast several times ( today I added an old mashed banana)...I have begun crocheting polyanthus and went to the nursery ( we are currently in Alert level 2 so can move about, but with restrictions), and brought some polyanthus which look very cheery in the garden and will continue to do so through our winter. We are in the last days of autumn, so it might be time to work on the autumn garland.....our daughter and her family were due to come out for holiday this July but it's no longer going to happen...so it's been helpful and inspiring to walk through your springtime countryside...helps me feel closer to them......thanks so much for all you share.


Dandelions: I’m 60 and in Australia we also grew up “telling the time “ by them. Small world!


Loved this little catch up with you, Lucy, as I crochet my own Harmony Blanket. I'm at the join-as-you-go part and it's just so much fun to watch it coming all together. We have dandelions but have never heard of telling the time with them. One of my very favorite YouTube channels at the moment is Kirsten. She and her husbands are Germans living in the UK and renovating their Victorian terraced house and they are the cutest couple I've ever seen! Hope you enjoy your weekend!


Thanks Lucy as always for the lovely insight into your days. I love to read these. I'm still working full time in quite a stressful job but have discovered I can crochet little flowers during online meetings to keep my hands busy. There is a lovely little initiative for the local children's ward who are giving out these little flowers for the poorly children's families who are unable to be there with their sibling, child, grandchild, during these ever such strange times. I feel blessed to be able to help in a tiny little way. Needless to say I'm using odds and ends from my Attic24 blankets to create these colourful little blooms :-) Sending lots of love. Hx


How thankful I am that I'm not lazy or unmotivated! When lockdown was first announced here I was visiting my husband in temporary nursing care. Suddenly I could no longer visit and felt my legs were cut off. I should have got on with the long list of things to finish as my classes and sewing groups were all cancelled. Thought I would prepare my class stuff ready for my ladies when we were allowed to meet again but my mojo was also locked down! We are very thankful here in Australia as our leaders shut down international borders as well as state borders and even regional borders within the state's but we are grateful now for the strict measures. We are really saddened by the terrible time so many are having overseas but also gladdened to see the wonderful things people do to help others, especially that wonderful Captain Tom who walked to raise money for covid projects. His love and generosity has touched many hearts.
One thing about this time, it has made my husband and I appreciate family especially our grandchildren - little ones not really understanding why they couldn't hug us. Loved your beautiful photos. It looks to be a beautiful part of the world.


Hello, here across the pond the dandelions are for wishes. If you blow them all off with one blow you get your wish. My youngest would get so excited whenever he saw a 'weesh flower',and now he towers over me and time went so fast.


Hi Lucy, I only recently discovered you and your blog, in February actually. I ordered the Dune blanket yarn pack as I had a sudden urge to crochet a granny stripe blanket. I had not crocheted in over 40 years but sudden inspiration is always exciting isn't it? During the past weeks, I have ONLY wanted to crochet my gorgeous blanket, to walk with my sweet lab and watch comforting movies. Like yourself, and many of these lovely ladies who have commented, I found it difficult to focus. Crocheting my blanket has been truly therapeutic and comforting, exactly what I needed during a strange , frightening and difficult time. Thank you Lucy from the bottom of my heart, for your blog, and your gorgeous happy blankets. I am very grateful that I discovered you in your lovely corner of the world. I live in a small town named Brighton but in Canada, not in UK.

Dandelions! Here in Los Angeles I grew up making wishes on them. If you blew out all the seeds in one blow your wish would come true. But I like yours much better. No missing out! You always find something out. “What time it is”. How lovely.


hello lucy, always enjoy catching up on your postings, its an 'odd', surreal' time isnt it...my body does feel a bit all over the place and my mind doesnt settle easily either...i find i'll loose myself in hanging the washing out, walking or spending time in the garden...but when I sit i feel lost somehow i just cant explain it...I'm so glad we have plenty of country walks around us to escape and forget the world troubles...Love your yarny makes! and those socks! beautiful country side around you too...Me and my daughter Sophia often pick the dandelions and blow and say its all the fairies!!...fly off make a new home ( or seed somewhere knew) Im sure my mother and nanny did the same when i was a little girl...yes i wonder if they grow all over the world?. Cow parsley is my favourite at this time of year! froffy lanes! blissful!!! take care, kazzy x (country rabbit blogspot)

I made the 'flap jacks' which in Florida are pancakes. I loved them before they went into the fridge and today I'm eating them with my 4 yo grandson who loves them also. He loves the shiney, smooth, buttery bottoms the best. Thanks


I don't watch a lot of you tube but I love The Last Homely House East of the Sea. I try and watch every evening. I hope you check it out and enjoy Kate's charming videos.


Dear Lucy, you describe the lockdown lethargy perfectly. I think we all expected to be productive and creative with all this time on our hands, but we're living with an undercurrent of anxiety and uncertainty, and it's distracting and draining.

If you want to know what it's like to live aboard a narrowboat, search for Travels by Narrowboat and Cruising the Cut on YouTube. Those are two "vlogs" about life on a narrowboat. In one episode of Travels by Narrowboat, the guy spends a wonderful day in Skipton. I kept my eyes peeled for Cooper's as he strolled around town, but if he showed it, it escaped my notice.
