Such a happy life, enjoying and appreciating the everday. Thank you Lucy xx.

Thank you So much.


I just had to post a comment even though it’s May 31, 20222. I love my kittty’s toes too! Oh my goodness! She has black and pink toes and they are so cute! Her coloring is mostly grey with a white chest and belly and white socks. She loves to snuggle on the couch with me on my Lucy blankets. She just loves them! Just like we all do! I smile because your cozy bed is your nest and my couch is mine. I wake up with tea on the couch. Sigh! So grateful I can.


This is such a cozy blog. I absolutely adore the pic with the trees and the fence, looks like a masterpiece painting! Will definitely keep up with your new posts from now on :)


Hi Lucy, it is so lovely to catch your post. Life has been hectic and I feel I have missed quite a few. My ‘little ones’ are both in their 20’s now and we are ‘empty nesters’. It is quiet and my sewing room has expanded😉. I miss having them around but am blessed to see them independent and happy and we catch up often. As they hit the high teen years I felt myself thinking there were things we needed to do before they left school as I felt they would drift away….. Delightfully they are always keen to go on family holidays, whether it be to the beach at Christmas in a big old house with the dogs, or overseas (pre and post Covid restrictions). We travelled to Canada as a family and someone is always planning the next one… The rhythm of life changes but the ties remain💕 There are so many things to be blessed with at each age and stage. Enjoy them all.

Hello Lucy, I just found your lovely blog from Alicia Paulson’s “Posie Gets Cozy”. I’ll be checking in on a regular basis! I was laughing as I read about your Sunday morning-2 or 3 cups of coffee-in bed ritual since I was in bed drinking my second cup in bed on this extended holiday weekend!

I used to quilt quite a bit but haven’t done anything recently. Seeing what you and Alicia are up to is inspiring me to get back in my studio. Thank you and I’ll be reading you from here on in.



Lucy, I’ve been reading here and following along with your creations and seasonal life since your blog was new — 2007, or 2008? My daughter will be 19 soon; she is between your older two, so I felt like I could picture the ages and stages of your children along with mine. To think that they are all young adults now! So nice for you to still enjoy some childhood days with Little B.
Thank you for continuing to write and create all these years. I used to comment regularly, but it’s been a while since I’ve left a note here.

I also am very fine with life in the slow lane with occasional bursts to keep things interesting! Hope your visit with your dad went well.


Life in the slow lane...just how I like it! Lovely post and pictures :)


Love all your photos Lucy. I am almost finished my harbour blanket, I show it in my first crochet podcast if you fancy having a look, its at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpv3WEEjlQQ&t=6s


Love this post as always! Sea Fever was my favourite poem as a child, I loved the rhythm of it. Thank you for the reminder xx

Dear Lucy, I enjoy you post so very much. Your pictures are beautiful. I wanted to let you know that I have started following Lucy Wyndham Read and her fitness videos…..I do a 7 minute low impact aerobic with warm up and cool down. Has been so beneficial! Thanks for sharing. I’m a quilter. Your colors inspire me to continue to be an unconventional quilter. Blessings

I so enjoy my visits here. You have such a way of expressing your love of home and family, which I share with you. Thank you for the lovely post and beautiful photos. As for the reminder that somewhere out there is another woman who enjoys her home, family, and all things cozy.


I just love your site!!!



Really looking forward to the Heather DK CAL. I’m seeing tartans and hoping for a man blanket this time!!!
Thanks so much for all your sharing of your creative journey, and your delight in your surroundings. You have a similar life philosophy to me……positivity in spades!!!
Have a good trip today!


Hi Lucy, it was lovely to read your post about all the lovely things you have been up to. We have had some small flurries of snow down South but it hasn’t settled and some very blustery days interspersed with glorious sunshine ☀️ hopefully Spring is on its way 🤞🏻Your violet embroidery is so pretty especially with the herbs added on to it too. I have had quite a few Craftpod boxes over the time and they are a delight to receive through the post and do. I am looking forward to seeing how the new blanket turns out as the Stylecraft Highland Heathers wool is gorgeous. Enjoy your trip to the coast and spending time with your dad. Take care, rest and unwind. Lots of love and hugs Becki xxx 🥰

Gratidão Lucy, por seus posts. Amo e meu coração se enche de alegria com as fotos descrição de tudo. Sou do Brasil, eu e minha família sempre passamos por muitas dificuldades, com 6 filhos para alimentar e minha mãe trabalhando muito, sempre. Hoje, aos 61 anos, agradecendo cada prazer que me permito. Que Deus te abençoe sempre.

Thank you for your post. I love “visiting” with you!! The embroidery is beautiful. I love the dark fabric. Can’t wait to see what you come up with for the new blanket. The colors are really different.

carol partridge

nice to read about your love of the simple things.I too grew up in a house where money was carefully watched.(I am 20yrs older than you).I had 2 younger sisters so quickly learned how to look after small children and a baby.I never ate out in a cafe until after I got married. My parents treat was to go to the local pictures, while I babysat. Enjoy your Saturdays with J. You can't beat it.

Lindsay Poulsom

Thank you for sharing your delicate embroidery, it’s exquisite isn’t it?
I love the blanket on your bed, which one is it please? I love your flowery bed linen.
Tomorrow I am clearing out and sorting out my stash and craft room, it’s making me fidgety instead of being a calm environment, far too much, badly organised so I can’t find things.


What a wonderful blog post! Just what I needed this Friday morning! I just loved it!
Thank you So much.


So lovely to visit with you again! I've never seen a cherry tree in blossom, just pictures. It doesn't get cold enough here. Nor for lilacs, snowdrops or crocuses. I console myself with the Jacaranda trees that flower during May -- so beautiful! There are compensations everywhere, and beauty as well. You just have to look for it. Thank you for posting. I always feel at peace when I read your blog. Yours is a nice world to visit.
