About Me

  • 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

Lucy, I came here from your 50th birthday post and I, like so many others, love this work. I would love to see you do more.

I'm so glad you put this link up again. I missed this first time. Now I see where your colour love comes from! These are really good, and you are a very talented artist. It must be lovely to get to share your talent through your blog. Well done for being a good role model.

Who wants to be 'normal!'

Well, who knew?!?! Wow! You are so amazing!! And the colours are SO Attic24!!!

So glad you linked to this, thankyou!


Well! You learn something new very day! These are lovely and I can see the @attic24 pallet of colours shining out!

What is "Normal" anyhow?
and Who wants to be normal if it means one cannot express oneself the way one wishes to do so?
You are so very creative! and your use of color is what attracted me to your work immediately!
That and your wonderful way of expressing yourself and describing your surroundings in such detail that the reader feels as if she/he is there in person seeing it for herself?

If you are "not normal", then I don't WANT to be normal! When I 'grow up' (I'm 70, by the way) I want to be just like YOU!

You are amazing Lucy,

the pictures are beautiful.


What a bright spot you are in the day. These are so delightful. What a deep gift you have in so many directions. Thank you from the heart for sharing.


I know exactly what not normal feels like, only minus the talent! My GOODNESS, what sheer delight you've created in these stitched pictures. My favorite thing is that you've even captured the tone and mottled effect of each sky so well! Makes me want to go visit these locales Right Now! :)


These are truly beautiful. Thanks for sharing them, they are very inspiring.

Thankyou for showing us your wonderful work Lucy, no wonder your crochet is so great, so pleased you photographed everything, we do the same, my quilts and embroideries and my husbands paintings, great to have a slide show now and then. You have made my day once again.

Lucy! You have so many gifts and talents! Thank you for sharing your artwork with us. Color therapy!


i didn't know this about you, how wonderful this work is.


Lucy, these are SO lovely! I can see your heart in them...very personal pieces of art. I linked to this post from your current one.


Lucy, these are gorgeous! What I love most about this post (having come to it via your festive garland post in Jan 2012) is how modest you are about your considerable talent - not just making these beautiful seaside scenes, but having the gumption to go out there and sell them. Perhaps some day you will go back to the honourable business of making money from your artistic/crafty creations. Like so many others I am really grateful to you for having such a generous heart to share your tutorials with us for free, and to encourage us to explore our own creative potential. You really are so inspiring. Thanks! (And Happy New Year!)



...Though this comment is about 3 years too late. It's not my fault..I only came to crochet and your blog last year really :-)

I made my first crocheted blanket at Christmas in a farm cottage overlooking Robin Hood's bay in 2008. The pebbles on the beach are AMAZING colours, aren't they?


Lucy questi paesaggi cuciti sono meravigliosi!


I've been indulging myself by a wander through your archives, through all the posts that existed before I came across Attic24. I think your textile artwork is stunning...even more so than your crochet, which is saying something!

That lighthouse one is my favourite. I love, love, love lighthouses!

Jan Wagner

You have helped me to get out of a slump...I have a beautiful sewing machine, lots of tools, fabric and threads...too much actually. But I think when no one sees the end results and it goes into yet another plastic storage tub....then the joy of handicrafts becomes a memory. You have inspired me to keep my talents and sewing skills active, and I appreciate the opportunity to post to you.


They are so absolutely wonderful...


I just found your blog. Oh, how lovely! everything you make is inspiring me to get to my creative "space" and get going!

Anna, Sydney

My heart skips a beat when I see the boaty, sea-sidey ones... Eagerly awaiting stuff on your Etsy shop. Or would it be possible to commision work from you?

Erica K

Wow! I'm just speechless! You have such talent! wow...
