Wishing you a very Happy 2021...
Your blogs always cheer me up, as does the sight of all your pretty projects/home and your pictures of the countryside. 😊🥰


Lucy, I always look forward to reading your posts but this year in particular they have been a lifesaver x the joy they bring, your photos, the colours, the simplicity of life is so good for my soul.
I wish you and your family a very Happy New Year xxxxxxxxx

I love the term "twixmas".. wish I'd thought of it! Sorry for your boiler outage, but glad it's fixed, nothing makes you appreciate warmth than when it's missing. I'm also ready to clean the red things and glitter away for the beginning of 2021. I hope it's better! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Hi Lucy, I just wanted to say thank you for another year
of inspiring posts and beautiful photos. Wishing you and
your family and Very Happy New Year 2021. I’m looking forward
to your new Meadow CAL in January, can’t wait for it to begin x🇦🇺😁🤗.


Than you for another uplifting post Lucy. You have certainly helped to keep my spirits up this year. I hope you soon get your boiler fixed, what a time for it to break,hurray for all the cosy blankets! I have little piles of bright crochet blankets and knitted shawls dotted around the house and find nd them so comforting during these cold dark days. Happy New Year to you and let's hope the coming year is a better one.

Lucy your blog never fails to cheer me up and give me inspiration. Living in QLD Australia the weather is not always conducive to crochet, but turn the aircon on to cold and there you go, crochet weather. Your home is deliciously inviting with its cosiness. Here is to a better new year for all.

Susan Alli

Lucy dear, thanks so much for your wonderful blog. I wish you a beautiful new year!

Thank you for all your posts, they have kept me sane through these difficult times. I am looking forward to the crochet along, a time to think of fellow crocheters around the world.

It’s been a very hot Christmas here in Perth WA! Or nice at all. Having said that we did have a lovely time with the family. Grandsons running around the house and our 7 month granddaughter crawling towards the Christmas tree hoping to grab the decorations. Had a light lunch before son family left for their Christmas time with daughter in laws parents. So a little quieter dinner with daughters family and my sister. Far too hot to go for walk. Boxing Day still hot but not as bad in evening. Then came my 60th birthday on Tuesday 29th and another hot day. Had morning tea (coffee) with hubby, daughter and Grandson A at a Gluten free cafe. Oh by the way I have emailed you photos of my Leo blanket. 😁 Used my other email as photos are on mobile. Take care and Happy New Year to you & family.

I too have prepared our home for New Year a little earlier than usual. Although our tree will continue to twinkle till 12th night. It’s so pretty and looks as fresh as when we first decorated it. New candles are waiting to be lit and a change over of blankets will provide flashes of cheery optimistic colour. I can think of no better way to jump into 2021. Dear Lucy, I wish you and yours the happiest of New year blessings and thank you for you generosity of spirit and inspiration. Karen

Thank you for always having a delightful and grateful view of the world. I have been following your posts since the early days when Little B was truly little! I had the good fortune of meeting you and crocheting across the table in your cozy cafe group on a visit to the UK a number of years ago. You have inspired me in my creations....thank you! A wonderful world of crochet was opened to me through your blog and I am ever so grateful you opened this world and your heart to me and countless others! God bless you and your peeps in the coming year! xx


Such a lovely post! Thank you for appreciating your family, home and life! I started reading your blog again am so glad I did.

Another lovely post, Thankyou! We had snow on Tuesday and our daughter, son in law and 2 grandchildren came over and we went tobogganing in the local park. The children were so excited! Then we came home for a snow fight in the garden! Such lovely memories! It’s bitterly cold today and I’m really sorry that your boiler is poorly! As you say not a good time for the boiler to go wrong! Hope it’s soon mended! I only put up the advent calendar this year, so not much to take down but I know what you feel about taking down your lovely decorations early. Let’s hope that 2021 will be an improvement on this year! Happy New Year!

Sue Walton

Thank you Lucy for all of your posts through this strange year and all your wonderful craft inspiration! I have never made as many blankets, socks etc as I have this year, I even knitted a monkey for a Christmas present for a 1 year old. Happy New Year to you all.

Charlotte Pountney

Please God, 2021 will be a better year for everyone.
We had 4" of snow down south in Kidderminster, it's still hanging around and the roads are lethal, so I've stayed in, wearing wooly socks, walking boots, merino longjohns and overtrousers. If anyone comes to the door, I'll just say I'm about to walk the dog!


Winter walking is lovely isn't it, I always, always enjoy getting out there. And I absolutely adore that last hour of daylight, seeing the sun set and seeing the cosy lights in people's houses at the end of a walk. Wonderful. It all looks beautifully cosy with you, your table with flowers is gorgeous. I must confess to having packed Christmas away yesterday. We had an absolute beast of a tree which took up so much space and the recycling people are coming tomorrow, so it is on its way I'm afraid. I do love the wonderful clean, clutter-free energy of January. Well, less clutter anyway... I hope you have a very happy New Year. CJ xx


Thanks Lucy. You are appreciated x


My boiler went off during the time of the beast from the east, I am right on the north east coast and it was bitterly cold. I was glad of my coal fire and luckily a local engineer fixed it. Happy new year x


I must thank you for your posts and inspiration over the year.I have used your designs to make and send to friends to cheer them up. Happy New Year.x
