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

Hi Lucy, I'm enjoying reviewing 2010 with you even though I just arrived a month or two ago. I hope Little Man is continuing to recover well. Happy New Year to all of you at Attic 24. Rose in Oz


Love this post, love the idea of a blog a as pocket of memories, I feel very similarly to you in regard to why and how I blog, I often think during the day of things I want to photograph or blog about, its a great way of marking life as it passes.

Ahh that post made me feel a bit emotional, it was such a lovely post. I love the photos, especially those with Little B. I agree with everyone I absolutely love reading your blog and you inspired me to start blogging too, it's a wonderful record of family life and craft life. Thank you so much for all you do. Happy New Year to you and your family and your followers. And I really look forward to visiting your blog many times in 2012

Hi!! I realy like your blog, your handcraft, your pictures and the discrete way you tell us about your family-life. You let us in, in your life in a very elegant way. It`s hard for me to explain in english, but I hope you understand. I hope you will continue!! AnneK:-)


If only your unconventional measures of success were what more people judged success by this would be a happier (and more colourful ;o) world! Happy New Year to you and yours.


It's been fun getting to 'know' you through your blog this last year Lucy. And great to be able to look back at 2011 Attic 24 style. But now I'm looking forward to seeing what you will be sharing with us in 2012 :D Happy New Year!


Your blog is delicious. It fills me with happy thoughts! I'm delighted you blog.
Thanks so much for sharing.......especially your love of colour!
Happy New Year and all the best!
Cheers, Lisa x


I remember seeing lots of these pics over the year, although there are soe that I haven 't seen, how could I have missed a 'must read' Lucy post lol.


Well I'm just beginning my foray into blogland, and I've been following your blog for so long now that I find trawling through your archives incredibly comforting. They're not my memories, but I love reading what you were thinking and feeling when you began your blog and how it's evolved over the years. I don't expect mine to reach the magnitude that yours has, but it makes me mindful to make it as much as I can, because I never know who might be reading. I hope to look back on my blog in years to come and find many wonderful memories of my home life, because I'm finding the beginning of it impossibly exciting :) So thank YOU.


I'm under the impression of wonderful colours of your home. It's cosy and calm, and lively as well. It's a fantastic way of documenting daily life and I appreciate that you want to share this part of yourself with anonymous part of the world. I like your photos and blog! Happy New Year! Renia


Hi Lucy, they are beuatiful phots of an amazing year. I believe the reason your blog is so popular is because it is genuine, it's day to day and honest, loving and colourful and so many people can relate to it, and in turn to you.


With you being the Pied Piper... uhm... Pied Piperess (?) of crochet I have been watching and mooning over your craftiness for quite some time now.
Before Christmas I managed to knit a scarf for my best-friend. And a modest stocking cap.
It has literally been 15-20 years since I had picked up a knitting needle and yarn, much less a crochet hook.
With a small voice (that sounds like you as I think you might sound) whispering in my ear... I used the gift card I received over the Holiday and bravely & gravely went online. Found a sublime 30 percent off sale at Joanns Fabric... And got myself a bakers dozen of scrummy skeins of yarn.
So- I am going to give this Granny square coziness a whirl...
Wish me Luck !!
And Thank you for providing the inspiration !!!

Dear Lucy,
Your blog has brought me sunshine from the very beginning. Thank you for letting us share your memories, the warmth of your welcome and more particularly your chocolate caramel shortbread.
with love


Your pictures bring much-needed cheer to my soul. Thanks for taking the time to make such wonderful, personal and encouraging posts.

Such a lovely post - thanks for sharing all your gorgeous photos and your thoughts on blogging...I've been converted this year and I love it!!


Your post today got me a bit teary! Love your blog. I think you have been the most amazing memory treasurer and keeper for your little folk. I just wish I had done something similar for mine. Like you, I feel my memory is shot to pieces and my daughter gets so cross with me sometimes for being so hopeless! My little one is off to pre school for the first time tomorrow, another reason for my tears, maybe it's time to start blogging..... X Sarah

You have brought so much joy to me reading your life style and the beautiful scenery photos. I live near the sea but unfortunately no where near the scenery you have on your walks.I can only dream of visiting your part of the world, as I nurse my husband who has cancer and try to look after my baby grandchild.Thank you once again you inspire me.


Hi Lucy,
My first comment. I've not been reading your blog long - I started because I mentioned in my local wool shop that I wanted to be able to make granny squares, and the owner immediately wrote down Attic 24 and told me to google. And there you were. Well, I've learnt at least two ways of making a square, for which I'm grateful. But I'm far more grateful for the inspiration, the encouragement and the sheer joy of living you give out. Thank you so much. I look forward to reading your blog, to trying our projects, and to seeing the lovely things you create. I wish you and your family all the very best for 2012. x

Hi Lucy, I discovered your blog a few months ago and I just love it! Thank you so much for sharing your world with us in such a beautiful, beautiful way. It's inspired me to pick up things more colourful than I used to do before - and to do a little crocheting of course... :)
Best wishes, Bára


Your pictures just make me so happy!


Thank you for such a lovely journey through your year. As others have said your warm approach to blogging and wonderful photos and projects gave me the kick I needed to start my own blogging journey. So looking forward to following your adventures in 2012.


AMEN...a wonderful place to visit. I'd love to come to England and visit. Your photos take me places I cannot go just yet, maybe never. Thank you for all the time spent creating, cooking, crocheting..etc...etc...etc

I, like Carol above, thought of blogs as self-serving, but they are such a nice and friendly way of sharing; I was wrong, at least about many of them.

Your creativity has made such a charming place for your family - it's just delightful!

(was that a Bonne Maman jelly jar there???) :)

Thank you so much Lucy for sharing your wonderful home with us. I have been following you for months now and the joy that I get out of visiting your little attic is undoubtably amazing. You have inspired me to begin blogging and I just hope three years down the road I will be able to go back and revisit my life through my own blog as you have yours. Can't wait to see all of the wonderful things you'll make and do in 2012. BTW!!! I am making a ripple throw from your pattern can't wait to share it!
