What a lovely little holiday for you and a treat for your Dad and Lady B too. Thank you for sharing these special moments with us. Do love your writing and the excellent photos. Hugs xx

I know I am rather behind reading your blogs Lucy, but just had to tell you how much I am enjoying them and especially our little holiday in Dorset - that is how I feel just like I was there with you.
Most year's we visit Dorset as it is a short trip for us living in Somerset and all the places you visited are so familiar. Thank you for sharing your little break with us.

Dear Lucy, dear all, I have been following your beautiful work for several years now. You are really inspiring so many people! I would like to inform all of you about a crochet project in Germany (www.museum-frieder-burda.de/weltmeer-haekeln.php) inspired by a worldwide project from the Wertheim-sisters (www.margaretwertheim.com/crochet-coral-reef).

As a science teacher I would like to install a satellite reef at our school. So if anyone likes to make a coral as well, I would be happy if you sent it either to the Frieder-Burda-Museum and/or to me: Dr. Margit Sauer, Franz Kern Str. 9,
D-77767 Appenweier, Germany
You will find a pdf with instructions on both links.
Thanks for reading and maybe spreading this.
Many greetings, Margit

I have loved your daily blogs so much. Will miss you. The blanket looks beautiful. I'm sure your dad loved the time you spent together. Previous memories made. Xxx

Angela Glae

Beautiful! Thanks again! Sorry I’m spamming your emails, I always LOVE your blogs but I particularly needed to see your jaunts around Dorset this week so I’m very very appreciative! Your blogs make me feel like I’m the one experiencing the week away haha! And you feel like a friend, like a penpal writing me a letter! I’ve been following you for years so that’s probably why. Thank you! x

Merry Barfield

Your coffee looked so good that I immediately made a cup, splashed on some whipped cream, and grated some German chocolate atop. Yum! Thanks for sharing a bit of your country with us.

Sara Jane Apple

Oh my, I shall miss your daily posts. They have brought me such joy and appreciation thru this record breaking rainy season on the West Coast of Canada. I do live near the sae so I count my blessing daily for that. Thank you for your brightness that shines across the world.

Alicia P.

Oh, what a treat to travel with you! Thank you!

Charlotte Pountney

I have really enjoyed your jaunts (and all the other posts. So sorry Blogtober is coming to an end. I can see it would be too much to keep up every day...but please don't forget us!


Just love your posts from Dorset.

Jane Wolks

I wake up and what's the first thing I do, well I read your post.
I want a cappuccino too plus flowers on my table. I love the way you grab the little things in life and devour the goodness of it.

Ann Collins

Thanks for taking us along and also for all your wonderful posts for the entire month. I really love reading them.

I have loved your trip to Dorset. The ocean is always so restorative. I look forward to hearing about your new ripple blanket. I love the bright happy colors. I am making your Flora Granny Squares for a small throw, using all my leftover yarns from other blankets. I have 48 blocks so far and hope to keep hooking until I run out of yarn. I may be able to get close to 100! A slow, long term project, but I am enjoying it so much. Save journey home, Lucy.

Marie Wilson

I have very much enjoyed spending October with you. Hate to see it end. I live in middle Georgia in the US so your world is very different than mine. It’s always a pleasure to read your blog.

Linda from Boston

Thanks for taking us along!! I needed that 😊. Glad you had a good visit and I can’t wait to hear about your current project.


Gorgeous photos as ever. I’m working my way through my first ever of your blankets- cosy stripe. It’s hopefully going to be a Christmas pressie. Where are your lovely boots from? Looking forward to more colourful posts.

So pleased you managed to get to the Green Yard …we only discovered it 10 days ago and have made three visits in that time !
The staff are so lovely … really friendly and welcoming .
When we were last there on Wednesday afternoon I overheard one of the ladies who works there saying to the rest of the team in the kitchen how much she loves her job. I said it was so nice to hear someone saying that and she said she’d had so many different occupations but this was the best job ever .
Lovely coastal pics Lucy ,these Blogtober posts have been a real treat ☺️ xxxx

What a lovely trip to the coast! I've really enjoyed your travel blogs, as I enjoy all your blogs.


Thank you so much for your Dorset blogs. My sister had a caravan at Lyme Regis and I loved going down there. But I also want to say that I can't thank you enough for cheering me up over this year. Since the beginning of the year I have been unable to walk (just beginning now) and have been in awful pain, due to no knee cartilage and a horrendous spell of rheumatoid arthritis due to having to stop my medication (which has now been resolved). Throughout this time I have been so cheered by your adventures. What I love so much about you is the way you appreciate the lovely things in life and your pictures show me the wonderful outside world I can't wait to get back to. As for the crochet... I'm doing an Autumn Ripple at the moment as well as Aria and chunky bag and cushion! For many months I wasn't able to crochet and so am now making up for it. Thank you again for bringing the sunshine into my rather dreary life!!!


Lovely that you managed a few days away there, your last morning sounds very good indeed. That coffee! I do love a train journey, it's been a while since I went anywhere. I hope re-entry goes well. CJ xx


Thank you for all the sea pictures!! I love sea, sand and the beach so much.


Absolutely loved all your blogtobers !
Oooh that sea looks lovely!
Oooh nice bright blanket squeeeeeee
Cant believe blogtober is almost over will miss your posts everyday.

Lynn Dee Butler

Loved your trip to Dorset. Honestly I just enjoy all your adventures! I’m glad you got to enjoy your Dad and Lady B. Family togetherness is important. Looking forward to learning about the ripple blanket.

Gill W

Ohhh I’ve so loved reading your blogs. It’s just like we’ve really been in your shoes and travelled to Dorset and indeed everywhere with you. As for the coffee’s they’ve looked mouth watering delicious I feel like I’ve sampled them myself and enjoyed the virtual coffee/cappuccino taste (even though I’m not a big coffee drinker but, those virtual ones were just delicious 😋). I hope you had a good and safe journey home. I am gutted that Blogtober is finished I’ve so enjoyed reading your blogs each night to wind down. They are and have been amazing. I hope it’s not long before there are any more I’ve really enjoyed them. You are an inspiration. Anyway God bless you and take care.

Marylin Ollivier

Hi Lucy And a blessed trip home! Again, thank you so much for taking us with you. It is and has been a memorial time with you in your journey. C U back home! Hugs, MO
