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.

Happy New Year to you, Lucy! Just wanted you to know how much I look forward to your blog every day. Your hooky loveliness has inspired me to crochet some colorful blankets. Your descriptions of yarns used, your absolutely GREAT tutorials, etc. are THE BEST. I really appreciate your efforts... All my best from frigid Southern California...USA! Angie


Happy New Year! What a lovely outdoorsy way to spend the first day of 2013. We've not had a drop of rain here in London today - hoorah! x

Faith McLellan

Lucy, love your blog! You have probably answered this question a zillion times, so just point me to your answer if so ;-) I want to try crochet but have no idea where to start. Kits? Blogs? HELP. Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Lucy! It's rainy and cold here in SC, USA. Our NewYears traditions include pork roast, black eyed peas, and collard greens! You must eat the greens for money and the peas for luck throughout the year! It smells yummy in my house as I snuggle up, crochet of course, and wait for our meal to slow cook its way to supper time! Wishing you a apply and healthy 2013!

Beautiful photos as always! And always inspirational. Hope you and your family have an amazing 2013!

Happy New Year Lucy! I can't believe I didn't know how to crochet this time last year, but my old friend who now lives in Queensland pointed me in the direction of your blog and I've had so much enjoyment from seeing your ideas and following you for the last seven or eight months. Hope you and your family have a lovely 2013 with lots of fun and laughter. xx


Happy New Year dear Lucy! Wishing you and your family everything the best! Many more colourful adventures !!!! We are also very happy and cheerful here in purple land :)

Many thanks and hugs from NYC

Happy New Year to you and yours, Lucy. Today has been very bright and sunny here in West Norfolk, but a bit on the chilly side. I wish I had dragged myself and Himself out for a good walk , yours looks wonderful...mind you, so much more fun with Littlies along as well

I always feel the urge to crochet after reading your posts, but I am in the mdst of a flet frenzy at the moment - SO easy to applique with felt/wool, and I've just covered the top hat I wear when playing for the Molly Dancers...I think I miight have a few commissions on the way! But really, it's all about the colour. Which brings me back to your blankets and bags. Hope to see much more of your fab work, and hope 2013 is a great creative year for you. Lxxx


Looks beautiful - love all the moss/lichen, nature is truely amamzing!


Happy New Year to you all! I'm sure it will be a lovely one! xx


Happy New Year! I love that you saw a rainbow too! It makes me happy to see all the rainbows on New Years day. A good sign for the year ahead, and I think everybody needs a good year!


A very happy cosy and crafty new year to you and your family ... just love your posts they are just fab thank you x


Hi Lucy, it looks lovely and cold where you are. We have had LOTS of rain and it is very hot and humid. I also have projects left over from 2012 ( your lovely bag as well as two felt ornaments) that I promised I would finish before starting anything new. Good luck with your balnket and Happy New year

Thanks for your blog, Lucy, your photos delight the senses. Your prose is charming and educated, whimsical and enchanting.

It's been a hooky time for me here in the SF Bay area where we've had bracing cold windy days. I love snuggling in and finding you come up when I click Next on my Bookmark Bar.

Happy 2013, may each step we take lead the way to Peace.


Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family, Lucy! I am looking forward to following your blog for another year. :)


Happy New Year! Your little corner of England looks absolutely engrossing, and (as a crafter who myself lived for several years in Scotland) I wish I could walk to that little pebbled beach and pick myself out a fossil, then return home to a warm cuppa and a cozy nest to crochet from... a wonderful first day of this new year!


Happy New Year ! Enjoyed your trip to the countryside...lovely pictures.


Lucy, you are just lovely. I fully appreciate that you are a glass half full girl....and all the color you bring into our lives. I smiled when I saw those colorful rain boots! It's the little things that add up lot lots of joyful moments. Happy new year!


Happy new year Lucy.
Thanks for all your inspiration and amazing tutorials. I love seeing what you've been up to


That rainbow is definitely a good omen for you Lucy.

Wishing you and your family a happy New Year. I too am crocheting projects started last year. You seem to have a wonderful knack of working things out. I love the ripple afghans and am trying to figure out to to add baubles or popcorn stitches to it. Would you have any suggestions for me? This is my project for 2013. I have to admit I am a little confused. Being that the ripple consists of decreases and multiples, I'm not sure where to begin. Trial and error I guess. Thanks! I love your blog!


Happy New Year Lucy I hope it brings you and your loved ones bountiful blessings. We walked today too, a beautiful warm, sunny summers day here in Melbourne. My youngest also enjoyed throwing pebbles into the water and the resultant splashing. We stopped for ice-creams at the beach cafe and finished it off with a tryout of the newly renovated playground. Perfect.


What a beautiful day you had! Thank you for sharing it with us. Happy New Year to you and your family, Lucy!

Hi Lucy. I would really like to crochet a blanket this year. I can crochet although I haven't done for about 30 years - yikes! I don't really fancy doing a granny one, but do fancy the ripple blanket. Is it a good one to me to attempt.or am jumping the gun a little?what would you recommend.

Mandy Adams . Grimsby,


What a great fossil find from little man :) He must be so proud!

I love your blog and I look forward to visiting it often in the new year of 2013. I have just recently joined blogland and I am having a blast.

You have inspired me to make my very own "first" ripple blanket and I am making it my creative goal for 2013. Wish me luck!

Happy New Year and may it be all that you wish for!

-Birgitta, Iceland
