My name is Lucy and I am a 45 year old blogger, crafter and dreamer.
I was born in London and although I dream of the countryside I still live in the city with my three children. Being a Mum to them is a joy and their lives take up most of my time. Friends and family are near and far. I love my city and I make the most of it, finding beauty in the seasons and nature wherever and whenever possible. We have a small urban garden where I do my best to grow a few flowers and the odd vegetable. I sit in my little creative corner of our sitting room/bedroom/dining room, where to the sound of traffic and occasional birdsong, inspired by the beauty of nature, the seasons and my rich heritage, I write blog posts and mostly embroider lovely things with my hands. I think about writing craft books and stories for children. I dream about and do what I can to create a safer, kinder, more equal world. I am grateful for what I have.
I live in the beautiful British countryside, probably near the sea, in a little thatched cottage with my kids/grandkids around me. Friends and family are near and far. There is a cottage garden full of flowers, a veggie plot full of produce that mostly sustains us, a dog to keep us fit, a couple of cats curled up about the place, a few chickens clucking and laying eggs and perhaps a goat who may give us the occasional pint of milk. There is a simple rustic studio at the bottom of the garden by an apple tree, which remains warm and toasty in the Winter due to the heat from a log burning stove. Although it is modest, it has a veranda which pays homage to the one my lovely Mum and beloved late Dad built to frame the bungalow that still sits on their old farm in Kenya. My little studio is where to the sound of birdsong and the many animals, and inspired by the beauty of nature, the seasons and my rich heritage, I write blog posts and make lovely things with my hands. I write craft books and stories for children. I dream about and do what I can to create a safer, kinder, more equal world. I am grateful for what I have.
