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

I totally understand the so excited about yarn you can't sleep thing. On days I know I can get to the LYS I wake up at like 3 am with my heart racing in anticipation.

I truly enjoy your blog and I am so happy you have had a nice day because your nice day blog makes me slow the heck down and have a nice day of my own. You make me appreciate things like flowers on the table and not stress about tinkerbelle dolls UNDER the table. Thank you so much, you truly do make my days. :) I also just finished a blanket that was very Lucy/Attic24 ish. I will send you a picture if you like.


Is the plant a kalanchoe? Glad to hear you are doing well :-)

Claire Hilton

Lovely post...so glad your days are finding an even keel & as for housework ...well baby cooing is much more important...congrats on finishing the blanket my hexagon one is still in limbo must get it finished *sigh* story of my life!! have a great weekend


Great post. I don't think I have left a comment before, but I really enjoy your blog. It is beautiful.


What a wonderful Wednesday, so bright and cheery and so much accomplished. Sounds like a great day. I just made apple cheese cookies the other day and they are so full of good things like oats, apples etc. I consider them a very good thing indeed. Hope you get some rest tonight, looking forward to your Ta-Dah!

Think your plant is a cosmos, maybe?


Your blog makes me smile every day I read it. The colors, your upbeat attitude, news of little B, and just the lovely adoration of simple things. Thanks.

Jayne Walton

Its a super-dooper day now I've read your post! The flower pics are so cheery and spring-like. Could winter finally be over?!


Hola soy Dedalina de Argentina, amo tu blog, es un canto al color a y la alegría. Tienes un uso del color que maravilla. Oh! si lo viera mi mamá, estaría maravillada pues amaba el crochet. Podrás poner en tu blog el traductor así puedo entender lo que cuentas. Un beso grande y ojalá pueda hacer cosas tan lindas como las tuyas.

My guess for your plant in the first photo is that it's a cineraria.

Sorry, I meant the second photo!


Nice to know your world is getting back on an even keel. Without you saying much I think we've all understood what you have been going through.

Your blog has been such an inspiration to me that I wanted to personally thank you.

YOU, single handedly, have opened up a whole world of fun and interest to me and I can't thank you enough.


Little B is looking quite big now in that photo!

Love the colourful crochet cushions on your sofa outshining the daffodils.

Looking forward to seeing the new blanket. No idea where you find the time, honestly!

Thank you for bringing me some much needed cheer today x
I look forward to seeing your finished blanket, I know it is going to be just gorgeous.

That sounds like a very nice day! All those happy colors, cooing sounds, and cookies - how could you go wrong?! I can't wait to see the ta-dah!


Your wednesday was filled with so many happy things. I love to read it.
Your oaty cookies are delicious. Last week I made them with raisins, chopped dried apples and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.
Have you ever tried them with cranberries? I'll try it next time.
Can't wait for the ta-dahhhhhh!!


Looking forward to the zig-zaggy post. I am glad you are settling down into some sort of routine with little B. The colour of his clothes and the colours in playmat go well with the colours in the blanket! x


Your good mood is contagious!

Thank you.

Lovely lovely post, thanks for sharing your happy thoughts and mood with us.

Melinda's right - it's a cineraria.

Dear Lucy look forward to seeing your finished blanket. Homemade biscuits are best and oats and fruit are healthy aren't they???
Lovely plant. Does SR have these in her books or catalogue?
nearly finished my flowery wreath.
Heres to a happy Thursday.
Love Sarah west mids.


What a happy post, now looking forward to the "ta-dah" one.
I agree with the ladies who think your plant is a cineraria. It does look very bright and cheery.


Thank you dear Lucy for posting such beautiful blooms and a riot of colour and happiness. You have made me feel most spring-like! What an amazing Mum you are and such a special person. Hope you have a thrilling Thursday...fab Friday...:-)
love Trina xx


Thanks for a lovely colourful happy post Lucy!
Things are looking back up at home but we've had a very bleak time of late and this helps, I'll have to give the wreath a go real soon...But MUST pot some flowers for my garden, yours are looking sooo inspiring.
Have a good Thurs & Fri AND A BLISSFUL WEEKEND.
XXX Susan
ps has little B grown out of the bootees yet? I bet that happened within a week, hope he likes the puppy.

Lucy - I look at your blog most every day. You've inspired me to learn crochet, which I've done by learning on the internet!! Any chance you'll give directions for the BEAUTIFUL blanket you just finished? I've tried to copy it by looking at the pictures, but I'm obviously not that good yet!!
Love, Gennifer


Ooh... your oaty cookies are so delicious, especially with apricot! I've been making them every other day too! I don't even measure the ingredients properly - a cup of this, a handful of that, whatever is in the pantry - and they always work! Thanks for sharing the recipe :)
