Just checking in, sorry to hear that you have had a bug :( I'm hoping that you are getting back to yourself! This is the first winter blanket CAL that I did not participate in many years, and I missed it so! But I have been concentrating on using up some of my Lucy Leftovers, using the Harmony pattern to keep myself busy. I have found that I much prefer to use your color guidance than tweaking it on my own, LOL! So glad I found your blog, all those years ago :) You have brought crochet back to me, and a crafty "friend" and community I didn't know I was missing. Thank you, Lucy <3

Sorry you've been unwell, but glad you are on the mend. I had a really bad cold last week, which turned out to be covid - again! I'm starting to feel a bit better now though. In other news I finished my Springfrost blanket a couple of days ago, love it so much! Also I have a new vlog out, only a year after my first one!


Glad your feeling so much better, it always seems winter viruses linger longest for some reason. My fibromyalgia has been torture, I think its the varying temperatures no 2 days are the same, and my poor body is at 6s and 7s lol. But spring is on the way lighter days and nights and lovely nature waking up it'll be lovely 😍

Oh Glad to hear you are feeling better!


So sorry to hear you’ve been unwell Lucy and felt so poorly. There are so many vicious bugs going around at the moment but I’m really glad you’re starting to feel more like yourself again. Take care and please don’t try and do too much too soon. Love and hugs Becki xxxx 🥰🤗


Having recently discovered your pages as recommended by a friend I must thank you for such a heart warming and inspiration little site!

You are everything I would like to be and I am hoping to commit my ideas into action this year!

I too fall in love every time I'm out in nature whatever the weather. The colours, the shapes I want to bring then all home and recreate into something arty.

Do you have anything to do with kingfishers or foxes? I spotted a KF recently for the first time and am obsessed!


Glad to hear you are feeling better. Take care!


Sorry to hear you have been unwell Lucy and really hope you are on the mend now.
Those chillies and tomatoes look wonderful and I can almost taste the soup. Yummy.
Have a great week.


I love that print. The pure white mount and frame set it off perfectly. Glad you're feeling better :) x


Sorry you've been unwell, I hope you're back to full strength very soon. I remember how much my boys loved toasting marshmallows at a holiday property with a woodburner one year. I love the lavender photo of the early morning canal, stunning. I really love the winter months now, although I didn't used to. I like marching about in the wild weather then the lovely feeling of coming home to a cosy house. Hope you have a good week, CJ xx

I'm glad that you are feeling better Lucy. Take care, Cathy x


Glad to hear you’re feeling better! When I was a kid, one of our special meals was hot dogs roasted in the fireplace in the winter, then s’mores. Have you ever tried burning driftwood? I seem to remember the salts give different colors?? I live far from the ocean, so not a lot of chances to try it.


We have both had a COVID mimicking virus which wiped us out. Himself is still coughing at multi decibel loudness which does my nerves no good at all.
You rest up and keep warm. Hibernating is definitely the way to go. You can emerge from your burrow when you see the sun is warm enough to warm your bones!
I’ve just finished the borders on my two Springfrost lap blankets. The winter is still here so my sister will appreciate them!


Big hug,

This was lovely to read with my morning cuppa. Glad you are on the mend xx


I have learned to love the long winters especially as i can do more knitting and quilting in the colder seasons than I do in the sunny ones. Being a sun lover myself, I have found I enjoy the Summers so much more when I have also enjoyed the winters. A time to take it slower and make things.

Love & gentle hugs from Sydney - hope your well-being continues. Feel sorry for me - colon/gastroscopy next week! As always, the lead-up will be the worst! Love your blogs & pix.🥰👌👋😘

So glad you’re on the mend, with spring just around the corner to look forward to. I’m glad you took time to look after you. Just remember not to overdo things for a while!! Love from Scarborough, Queensland, Australia


I'm sorry to hear you've been sick. Sick sucks. That's all there is to it. I had a cold last year, and it knocked me over worse than covid! Sometimes we have to sink back into the pillows and just rest. Which is really hard to do, yeah? Love all the photos of your beautiful region. We're going to be up in your part of the world in a couple of months so I've told my husband that we must go and visit Yorkshire. It's always been a 'must see' if ever I went to the UK. Take care and soak up the healing vibes. Xox


So glad you're feeling better!


Sorry to hear you've been unwell, but hopefully now on the mend. Loved hearing about your dealing with it and funny you mentioned your Dune blanket, as that is the one I'm doing now. Please take care, stay warm & big hugs from down under.

Linda from Boston

Glad you’re on the mend. It’s no fun being sick. I finished the Springfrost blanket and started a Dune lap throw …….. cuz I need SOMETHING for my hands to do!!! Using up my yarn stash …… but (you know where this is going),
I need MORE colors. So, I placed an order Monday night with our friends at Wool Warehouse. Well, it’s with the courier today and will be here this afternoon. I just don’t know how they do it!! Love that Dune pattern. Be well. ♥️

Hello Lucy from Northern California! Thank you for sharing your journey and reminding me that the winter months are more than grit-my-teeth and endure it! Here we are so tired of the snow and the damage winter storms have caused. But I can see signs of spring which gives me hope! Best Wishes to you and your family ❤️


Glad you are on the mend. The colours on the circular cushion look so lovely and rich - totally pleasing 😊

So glad you are feeling better! Spring is less than two weeks away so its coming. Blossoms and sunshine are on the way for you! Remember to be kind to you!
