Hi Lucy,

Thank you for all your lovely stories and beautiful pictures. They warm one’s heart 😊.

Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful Christmas and a happy 2023.

Warm greetings from the Vulkan Eifel,


Hi, Lucy - Merry Christmas. Just wanted to share this recipe for easy lemon loaf; it's really out of this world good. You'll have to convert to English measurements though: https://aprettylifeinthesuburbs.com/easy-lemon-loaf/

Always lovely photos. Can you share or direct us to your friend’s knitted circular blanket? I’d love to try that. Make one in crochet and one knitted. Perfect winter project. Merriest Christmas wishes to you and yours.


Lovely pics. And thanks for the laugh! Mice Pies! instead of Mince Pies. :-)
Currently working on the Neat Ripple pattern using three colours for a single bed blanket.
All my previous Ripple blankets have had problems as my tension is diffiuclt... :-( Even with doing test swatches.
This time I did a Foundation Treble row instead of chain and then the crocheting.
Result: blanket is the correct width!!! Yah!
Yarn was gifted to me, so not my choice of colours. Red, green and white.
Took me a couple of days of struggling over how to stripe it without looking too Christmassy. Decided on using the colours the same order all the way through, but the number of rows varies every second row. Four rows, then 3 rows, then 4 rows.
Almost finished the first 3 X 200gm balls of wool and the slight variation in the row numbers is looking very good.


love your photos of fall and early winter effects .
your work also lovely your choise of colour is amazing you have really talent :) I hope my english is not so bad

Can’t believe I actually got to meet you today Lucy and visit your beautiful town! We’re visiting family in Grassington for Christmas, all the way from sunny South Africa. Loving the wintery Yorkshire landscape, it’s so beautiful.


We visited the Yorkshire Dales in November for the first time and had such a wonderful holiday exploring the area. Your blog gave me inspiration for places to walk and visit. We enjoyed a wander through castle woods, visiting Skipton, walking by the river and crossing the Hebden Suspension bridge, and delicious coffee and cake at The Old School Tea Room. I spent the evenings crocheting my Seashell blanket in Dahlia colours. Thank you Lucy.

This post makes me happy and warms my heart. Just the colors in your photos alone are so lovely and heartwarming. But I love reading about your sweet moments in life. And to think you wound up this delightful month with a few days at the beach. Just wow!!


Lovely photos, thank you for sharing! I love that you always have hyacinths in November. I always buy them in January, when the Christmas stuff is put away again. They remind me of the start of a fresh new year, with its new promises and expectations


Thank you for updating us!
Love it.


How beautiful Lucy! You do live in a lovely part of the world and it looks as though you have everything you need on your doorstep! Except maybe a coastline hehe 😀 Thank you for sharing your lovely pics of November 😊x


Funnily enough, I just caught the first whiff of my hyacinths and had a huge wave of nostalgia roll over me. You're right, I don't think they smell as much either.


Looking at the beautiful photos you snap of your hometown, and the woods, and the canal, and Bolton Abbey, just swells my heart and fills me with joy. It is so very pretty. And I need beauty like others need air. I love the great big gulp of it I get from your posts. Thank you!


Another lovely post & I'm trying to pick some favourite snaps from the above & love them all. Hope we see those hyacinths out & the deer sporting his red nose now is way cute. J just might be right about some of us being solar powered, but I do suffer from SAD so sunlight is definitely what I need. Pouring down here now & only 8deg & it is supposed to be summer? We even thought about lighting the woodburner last night. Thanks for sharing, take care & hugs.


Friday meet ups with the tribe for crochet, chatting, and cake sounds glorious. I think we all need those moments in our lives. I love the autumn coloured cushion. X


Your head full of leaves and colours made me laugh, I know exactly what you mean. I am obsessed with fiery leaves against a dark slate sky, especially the red ones, stunning. I have to stop every time I see them and the light is just right. I do that face to the sun thing as well. Even on a busy day, if the sun is out I go and sit on the back step just for a moment and close my eyes and sit in the light and soak it up. CJ xx

U are so amazing and talented 💖 love your posts I try to imagine England I live in Minnesota land of 10,000 lakes


I have always said that I am solar powered! I just feel so energised, euphoric almost in sunshine.

My goodness. I could pick up and move there tomorrow! What an absolutely lovely place to call home. I love your cozy photo with the fire. Thank you for sharing your world! Have a cozy evening from chilly Pennsylvania, USA.
