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

Hi Lucy,
It has been nearly a week since you last wrote on your blog (not that I am counting!) so that dreaded virus you mentioned in your last entry really must have taken a hold of you....you poor thing!! I hope you are feeling better soon (nothing worse than being sick especially when little people need looking after) and trust you have been getting some TLC?
Keep smiling,
Warmest wishes from Oz,


Hi Lucy,

I am new to your blog and wanted to tell you I just love it. I found your crochet bag pattern. What can I say, it's so fun to make. You give good directions and I'm really having fun with it. I also LOVE your hexagon pattern, flowers and leaves.

Thank you so much for making your instructions easy to follow :)



Hey!!! Where are you? I miss you!!! Looking forward to Monday...I am having Lucy withdrawal symptoms. I need my daily fix into the colorful world of Attic 24. Just teasing you, Lucy, have a warm and happy weekend.


hey, hope it makes you feel much better that you have so many comments! Because you are a special person ho brightens up our lives........thank you and here's to a happy and very colourful 2009


What a sweet post! I'm hoping someone bought you a lovely bouquet to enjoy while under the weather as well!
Happy New Year! Feel better darling.


I hope you feel better soon! This whatever had me ill for three weeks and I had 2 rounds of antibotics! Take Care!!!!!!

Hi Lucy,
Happy New Year. Well if you already have the crochet books, we can compare notes (ie. I can benefit from your wisdom)! I've only tried the cafetiere cosy so far and also the hanger cover, but yet to complete both, need little buttons and things. I don't know how it is that I never seem to have just the right buttons, given that I have a drawer full of them!

Dear Lucy, I hope that by now you are feeling much better, am very impressed that even when you feel rotten you manage such a lovely cheerful post ! happy new year Susan


Hope you feel better soon. This seems to be hiding round corners and catching everyone and it's not nice. Just when we think we've got some 'extra' time to catch up on things it means spending more time in bed and not for jolly reasons either.
Loved your mum's flowers. Hope someone sent you some too.


Happy New Year, Lucy! I hope you feel better very soon. Rest.


Happy New Year to you Lucy and your family, may it bring you lots of love and luck! Like you I've been in bed the last few days feeling yucky, the boys and hubby had it over christmas, making it a rather quiet one tihs year!
The flowers are just the thing to cheer me up, they look so happy! take care Claire xx


Hi Lucy, I've been looking for a spare half hour or so to come on and read through your lovely blog. I needed uninterrupted time to do this so it's had to wait until today! I cannot be interrupted when reading your posts so now J is away to see his dad for a couple of days I have the uninterrupted time and no "mum can we please play this toy now, mum can we play this on the wii, mum how do you play that game again, mum I don't know how to do that" that always accompanies the post-christmas days. I so hope you are feeling better and that 2009 has started well for you. I'm really looking forward to reading and seeing more of the goings on of everday life in attic24 this year. Your blog is inspiring to so many of us that drop by each day and reminds me to take joy from the simple things. Tomorrow I am having a major clear out (this should really have been done before New Year but I was too busy with the aforementioned child and toys and eating chocolate and drinking wine and generally eating, drinking and being merry) and am going to take myself off to Tesco and buy me some lovely flowers. I wish you a happy and prosperous 2009. Lots of love Nicola x


hi Lucy,

thanks for you lovely email the other day. I have restarted my blog - it should work from the link below but if not it is http://jnetzworld.blogspot.com

Happy New Year Lucy and thank you for a lovely bloggy year. I do hope the horrid virus did in deed sod off in time for a little new years eve celebration. I look forward to reading all about your lovely life in the attick in 2009.


Happy New Year Luce, hope you feel better soon, snuggle up on that sofa and take care of yourself.I can't believe I've avoided the bug so far, I'm surrounded by sick people!


Hi - I've just come across your blog and I love it! I hope you are feeling better, and wish you a very Happy New Year.

HAve a great new years eve and please keep giving us bright and cheery blog,..... they light up the day.....

Oh I can totally sympathise, I am feeling exactly the same. This lurgy has been with me on and off for what feels like weeks and it's back with a vengence today. Feeling rather fed up and sorry for myself so cheering myself up by visiting my favourite blogs. I hope you feel better soon and manage to have a good new years eve. We're staying in snug and warm with a bottle of champagne between us. Should go well with the lemsip! Wishing you a happy and healthy new year. Looking forward to you opening that etsy shop!

Ugh, we just got over something similar so I feel your pain. Keep warm under your lovely ripple and get as much rest as you can.

I'm doing a calendar on my blog and wondered if you would mind me using your colourful buttons picture from Nov 25 for the October picture? I'd put a link to your blog of course.
