I love your crochet patterns. Do you have anything for a Christmas tree skirt? Been looking around for a pattern, but can’t find anything that really stands out to me. Thanks!


Enjoying the daily blogs Lucy, have missed your comings and goings over the past few months, so glad you've got your mojo back! Love the seasonal faffing too! Keep it up and keep safe xx

Just popping in to say thank you for the daily blogs which are brightening my days during October. I love all the pictures you put up on Instagram too. With much heartfelt thanks for all the inspiration.

Love All of it !


Hi Lucy it is so lovely that you are taking the time to chat with us again, you really make my day. So glad you are feeling so much better with no yarn dale to deal with, it was obviously just too much for you. So glad that you and J have such a lovely friendship, and have these wonderful days together to do as you like, it is sooo good for a marriage to have that time. Your mantle looks gorgeous as always, how I love your home, your life, you, such a ray of sunshine on what is a miserable day here In The south, but crafting to do and because I now live alone and love it I can do as much or as little as I want. I too am embroidering again, forgotten how soothing it is. Take care dear Lucy xxx. Daphne


What a nice thing to have Monday mornings for yourself as a couple. And that you both are making efforts to make that time special. I so wish we had a great café to pop into for breakfast around here... We used to do that when living in AUstralia a million years ago, but cozy cafés are something that the Swiss lack... I don't think they have the word "cosy" in their vocabulary. Ha ha ha!
Love your mantel piece and the decorations you swap with seasons. Your wreath is stunning! I love the change of season and every year I'm especially ejoying the transition into autumn. The light is magical. At least when the sun is out. Like today. Gorgeous. I should do some work, but I think I'll take off for a walk across the fields and through the forest. It will add more to my happiness than an extra hour in front of the screen. Have a lovely day Lucy.

You’re always so inspiring. You’ve been my favorite blog for about eight years now and I just love all of your vibrant posts on here and on Instagram. I’m making one of your blankets for each of my children. Thank you for sharing your creativity with the world :)

Ohhhhhh.. the canal boats.. I'm so in love with them. I do love your Autumn mantel decorations. Will you add some Halloween things at the end of the month? I am determined to get my Halloween bin down on the weekend. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Incredible colour and inspiration.

just wanted to say hi and let you know how much I appreciate you blogging daily- it is such a lovely treat at the end of the work day. With all of the challenges in the world you offer respite and calm and beauty- thank you


You've no idea how much I love that little hedgehog in your autumn wreath, he's just scrumptious. It's so good that J works part-time, a really good work life balance I think. So often people miss out on walking in the countryside and the really good stuff in life if they are working all the hours etc. I love all your autumn mantel stuff. I was looking at my mantel the other day and thinking how everything on it means something to me. Some of it is just stones and driftwood and feathers, but they make me happy because of the memories attached. So glad you are feeling energised this year, I can well imagine how much Yarndale has taken out of you in the past. CJ xx

My favorite flowershop when I lived in Germany mixed their flowers in the shop vases in what I would call suggestions of bouquet ideas, not single color/type groupings. I had my own ideas of what I wanted to put together, but if you didn't have an idea, it would have been very helpful. Not sure why more florists don't do that.
Second I love chinese lanterns, too.

Moyra Guthrie

It’s so good to hear that you are enjoying Autumn, which is such a lovely season.

Estimada Amiga, siento que estas muy feliz, me alegro por eso. Me gusta leer tu blog. Saludos de Costa Rica


I think Helen is thinking of Honesty seed pods, my Mum grew them and once they were dry I enjoyed rubbing off the outer "pennies" to reveal the round transparent part (hence the name) and seeds. She also grew Chinese lanterns which have a round orange berry inside. Some restaurants have physalis berries to garnish desserts, but the Chinese lantern variety are apparently bitter, and are toxic when unripe so need to be kept away from small children.

I am really enjoying these daily blogs, thank you for all the time you're taking, Lucy.
So glad that you're not feeling the usual blues, the knitwear designer Kate
Davies has just blogged about working through winter and I found it helpful

Helen W

My mum used to grow Chinese lanterns too. I loved when they had dried and were transparent and you could see all the seeds inside each pod


Sounds like a wonderful day. I have only seen Chinese lanterns in pictures. Very interesting and Fall like. The mantle looks great!

Creative Faffing...its a thing. My husband thinks its just me. I have crocheted some pumpkins and leaves today.More to come.Its good to know you and J enjoy pootling about and get enjoyment just from nice coffee at your favourite cafe.We do the same.(we are retired). You don't need a lot of money either. Much better to be time rich.

Vicki Brunberg

Love, love, LOVE!!! Thanks for the inspiration.


Creative faffing is marvellous. I am on annual leave from work and can’t go anywhere. (Covid). But I can stay home and create. Love the daily blog.
