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

hello Lucy

I'm at home (bed) with the flu and want to post in my blog and I knew that you had great pictures that express very well what I need right now. I want to use this picture if it's ok but will wait for your agreement!

Oh my goodness. . .your thoughts on blogging are absolute perfection (as is that cushion cover), love the picture of Bolton Abbey as well, thanks so much for sharing.


This is going to sound so silly but I'm so excited by the Motorail 78 poster from Buffers. Mum always told me when we moved back to Scotland in 1979 we went on the train and the car came too. This was totally beyond my comprehension and being 11 months old at the time I had no recollection but turns out it was Motorail that we went on. So thank you for sharing that photo.


your small pleasures make perfect special memories.
love your trip to Bolton Abbey, it looks as much fun in the winter. xx

I'm so glad you blog too cos I love it! Can't wait to see Granny's Flower Patch!


I've just been examining in close detail your ripples!! lol!! Mine is looking terrible.. I think I got my counting wrong at the beginning, or something - last night, on row 3 - I've managed to end the row in the manner Jan Eaton suggests - so hopefully it will start to go right and I can explain away the bad crochet as an alternative border..

Love your new project - those double petalled flowers are so sweet!!

Thanks again for all the colour!!




Very cute little flowers :) Looking forward to seeing what craft goodness you are going to do with these :)

elizabeth of course

Everytime I visit your blog I think I'll just DIE (LoL)if I don't immediately:
pick up my hook and get to crocheting something, quick.
pick some live greens or flowers or something to live in my house.
and move to England. It's so much prettier than here. Here is nice and all, but I think I need a change.
What I'm saying is, you inspire me SO MUCH!


Utterly extra-ordinary in every way, reading your blog is like reading a good book. Get well and enjoy the stitching together bit!



Another smile-inducing, heart-warming Attic 24 post. Your lovely personality inspires me with the most wonderful positive energy today. Makes me what to grab my crochet hook and have a go at those little flowers. I know I have turned to your blog archives many times when I need a bit of cheering....and you never disappoint, Lucy. Have a great day, little sister.


Ah, such a lovely post and such a lovely blog too. I enjoy reading it and going bck over previous entries of yours. Attic24 is one of the few that I just have to check on every day. Thank you for sharing your life with us - it brings great pleasure.


Thank you for your inspiration. Happy New Year to you too.



Hi,Lucy!wath a lovely sorprise your new proyect!!!Ican´t wait to see!!!!:)


Each time i visit your blog i see wonderful colours and little flowers, in this period i'm crocheting a lot, and i also doing a lot of things. Tomorrow i wake up with little flacks of snow, unfortunatelly at the moment i'm at work, but when i will at home again i will do little rose ... excuse me for my horrible english ....


Having been inspired by your blog, am hoping to start my own when C is back at school, so your post today has seemed like a sign that I really ought!

Sounds like you had a lovely trip out, and the cozy at home times sound even better. Granny squares and flowers are looking great, can't wait to see them all

Hope your cold goes away soon. xx
