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

Gorgeous piccies, as ever. All those days filled with picnics sound delightful. So glad we have had this long spell of good weather. Can't wait to catch up with all your hooky business.


So glad All Is Well in Attic24 Land! Lovely photos of the canal boats and picnics, looking forward to seeing your new hooky projects - they are always such an inspiration xx

Lovely, happy, colourful memory-making! Yippee! :) xxx


Bunting and painted jugs - has to be good! And I think I take the view that cake is cake, and any day can be a cake day, whatever the season!

Hello Lucy,
We visited the waterways festival and it was just lovely. Look forward to tales from dorset and hooky business soon.

I wondered about the Simnel cake too! My calendar is hanging on my kitchen cupboard and I was looking at it and thought, ah yes, Simnel Cake. But, oh no, we've had Easter. But Easter was later than usual this year, perhaps that's why? BUT then sense kicked in and no matter how late Easter is, I'm SURE it's never been so late as to spill into May. Therefore, calendar is wrong. Bad calendar!
Hey Lucy guess what ... I am crocheting with GREY yarn. I know! Grey! It looks rather fab though, will show you tomorrow x


Wonderful post--it is gloomy, grey and raining out my window- and this post just brought sunshine in!


Lovely post Lucy.
Love bunting, love canal boats, love the patterns on the jugs and buckets of barges, love picnics and rivers and streams, Love jolly plants. Just LOVE it. You have really cheered my Sunday morning.




Gorgeous pictures. I'm looking forward to the hooky goodness.

My 7 year old has a bit of an obsession going on with canal boats so I must remember to look out for the waterways festival next year. The aire and Calder navigation is close to us so he gets his fix frequently.


Mmmm What fun you guys have been having! :) You have some very lovely photos there of some wonderful memory moments. Can't wait to see more of your garden, and all your little plants :)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Beautiful photos, thanks for sharing them. Glad u popped back to blogland


Oooh, I have missed your posts! And I am glad that it was because you and your family were too busy having fun. Well done to your little man starting to walk! My 9 month old daughter is crawling quite determinedly everywhere she can and is just starting to step her way along the furniture. A most interesting time. She thinks she should be walking NOW! Glad to have you back. xXx Helen

Ahhh, glorious blue sky, we have had so much grey and rain and freezing weather here (Aust) in the last week or two, so was a delight to see blue sky. Lovely, lovely post Lucy and little B walking, how quickly they grow and your little daughter's 7th birthday, gosh a lot has been happening in your world.

Happy Birthday Little Lady; seven is the Best Age of All for us girls. May your year be blessed with wonder, laughter and a growing love for your siblings. (two brothers, i think ?:) )

Lucy, I look forward to seeing your newest creations and want to tell you that Spring in northern California is the prettiest place for wisteria and roses and apple blossoms and irises.

How funny, carrot cake cooling in my kitchen as I read your blog! Must be something about May! Your photos make me yearn for a spot of narrow boating again. We have done 3 lovely holidays over the last 5 years on various canals. So lovely to see them all decorated with bunting.
I agree, May is a demanding month, but very gratifying.
Looking forward to seeing your Dorset holiday pics.

I'm so glad you're back again! I've missed your colorful inspirational posts.
Great photos! Thanks for sharing! Can't wait for Dorset story and your crochet creations!

I love bunting! I made some out of scrapbook stacks and I have it festooning my classroom. That owl card is darling. Remember paper bag owls? I might make one today and share it with someone I like.
Oh, I think next time the mood strikes you should go ahead and skip!

Oh, it's so good, refreshing and comforting to have a lovely new post from you, Lucy! I'm working on slowly beautifying my yard as well. Little people do make progress slower, but they are such a joy to see exploring the new outdoors, too. Can't wait to see your progress - I look forward to your inspiration!
Well wishes to you all!

Miss Holly

Such gorgeous pictures!!! So lovely to see your name on my list....I am forever grateful to you because finding you was the beginning for me ! Attic 24 opened the window to the lovely world of blog land and it's wonderful people! Thank you thank you thank you !!!


Lovely to hear you have been having a fab time Lucy, if not all go though! That's life isn't it! Sometimes it is so fast paced, you have to run to keep up, but at the same time you want to step away from it, just to breathe it all in and remember it! April has been a great month for me too but also a whirlwind! I can't wait to see your hooky goodness! Should be a treat for the eyes! Have a super duper day! Love Vanessa x


Thanks for your update. You seem to have been so busy doing so many lovely sunny things. I love the picture of the little shoe - how sweet! Can't wait to hear about Dorset. I love the place! x
