About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

HOW MANY calendars? Please don't think I'm being rude here, but with that many calendars you should be Miss Organised 2008! Not that I'm casting doubt on your organisation skills, but...
Looking forward to crochet week, I too have a bit of crochet to post about this week, and it's mostly your fault! It's been crochet weather hasn't it! Loving the hexes. Till tomorrow then, Fi x

I think the Boden coat would look really good on you Lucy. It matches with the green in your hexagon squares! The frost last week killed off nearly all my annuals but I scarily have strawberry plants in bloom and a bee buzzed past my ear yesterday. Whats happening!!! I too have the Country Homes calender and will probably collect a couple more calenders before the year is out!

Lesley

i have those 2 calendars ready for next year (along with Charlie and Lola....) I do so like the Ideal Home pictures though! Am also with you on the flowers - i bought tulips in the *whispers* supermarket last week and then found myself v confused on the way home as its usually the time of year when I realise spring is close by and i get all excited! so tulips in oct/nov is a bad thing i have decided!

I'm in lust with that Boden coat too, but am fretting that it may not be super toasty warm.

And I'm feeling poor. However, if it should hit the sales...

Funkymonkey

I am so with you on the flowers. I look forward to daffodils in January to cheer the place up and add a fresh look after we've had all the wintry Christmassy sort of stuff. Daffs in November...it just aint on!

Kitschen Pink

Fantastic post! I shall keep coming back to look at it if the grey weather gets me down! Glad to see you are very sensible and know that the only thing to do when one has been discobobulated is to drink tea and eat cake! We have the chestnut roaster and toasting forks, you're absolutely right - everything should revolve around food this time of year! But last year we were also given 'Northern Lights Fire Color Cones'. No idea where you get them but they are just wonderful fun! t.xxx (PS WANT that coat!)

Hen

Yes, you definitely need that coat, how can you be expected to brave Winter without it? There's also a discount offer on at Boden at the mo', what more reason do you need?! Loving the hexagons, they look fab and so bright and cheery. I too am sad at not being able to go-a-snipping in the garden. Still just about able to get asters in the shops but probably not for much longer. I must try your carrot cake recipe, essential fuel, methinks...

Doesn't three calendars make life rather complicated?

driftwood

ohh, calendars - perfect excuse to go magazine shopping!
and I love the word discombobulated!!

Dear Attic 24:
First must tell you your blog is great. I look forward to reading it every morning. I must tell you that I tried the lentil and peanut dish yesterday and it was devoured in no time. This will be a dish that I will do more of as it is full of lots of vegetables and protein and the kids don't even know it. After seeing your lovely ripple afghan I have started my own and we are lucky around here to be getting supper because it is so hard to put down. I love it!

Fiona

I definitely need to go out and get one of those freebie calendars. When I first moved in with Hubbie-to-be he had an Arsenal one on the wall in the Kitchen!!!! Need I say more. Next year there'll definitely be no men in dangling on our kitchen wall but lots of prettiness instead. I think you definitely need that coat by the way.

Hi Lucy - I was wondering if I could have your email address? I have a question for you about your tea - Imagine that!? Thanks alot! Jennifer in Boise, Idaho

periwinkle

I've got those 2 calendars also - most of the pics are just gorgeous. I totally agree , you can't be buying spring flowers in November it is just so wrong

Josie-Mary

Great post as always which is why I've sent you an award - see my blog for info :)

Anne

Your crochet is so pretty - can't wait for the patterns. Is the pattern for the crochet flower scarf available? I have searched but maybe I am missing it. Thanks.

mandy

sounds like you had a lovely weekend, I am looking forward to the hexagon making lesson:)

julia

Needless to say I'm useless with a calender too, I have to write notes to remind me to look at the flipping thing!
Made one of your jam jar covers whilst at my parents, I was sooo pleased with myself (unnaturally so some might say!). I've also discovered that I can crochet in the car which made the 8 hour journey up to Scotland so much more bearable for me, sod everyone else!
Can't wait for the hexagon pattern, think the bag might be a bit beyond me just yet.

I can almost smell the aroma of that lovely rose. Glad you had a wonderful weekend...I was thinking of you. Another enjoyable visit to the colorful Attic24 and that view from your window...I want to sit there too. Will be sending you mail soon, Lucy.

Sal

What a fantastic view you have from your attic! And as for your crochet..superb! ;-)

Tami

Just found your blog today and am excited to find that you will be sharing your pattern for the bag and the hexagon blanket. I too am patiently waiting. Thanks so much!

hannah

wow that was one heck of a post! just been catching up with your blog, havent visited for a while (before?? not sure, but thanks for stopping by my blog recently) anyway, you have been making me smile, so thankyou, and you should definately get that yummy boden coat. You seem to buy as many magazines as me too, its an addiction we just can't help! Love the november view out of your attic.

I know you have loads of comments today, Lucy, but I'm hoping you answer mine. I'm fascinated by your coal fire. I've only ever seen it in fireplaces in England and I was wondering why you don't use wood.
