Just found you wonderful blog.
I've lived all my life in the South West--never made a trip to Yorkshire thinking it was full of "dark satanic mills"!! Your blog has opened up the beauty of the county---Ilkley looks so similar to my beloved Dartmoor.
Must book up a visit as I'm sure it will blow my mind!!!!!!


Oh my God cant belive the biscuits----out of this world----my two little people (grand children) are about to visit I better have another before they get stuck in
Beautiful thank you lucy Sout Australia Australia


Oh my goodness-baby cashmerino is the most wonderful yarn--what a bargain! And I would very much like to trade my weekends for yours! K x


Don't change your posts Lucy, I enjoy the colour, crochet and a glimpse into your world. Love the yarn, Debbie Bliss Cashmerino is beautiful and so soft and can be a bit pricey in Australia I couldn't imagine having a whole bag! Enjoy it


Boring? - Never! Your blog is like a breath of fresh air. I love it's "ordinariness", it is real. My blog is just a diary about my everyday life and I love the fact that I can look back over the past year and remember the everyday happenings that might overwise be forgotten.

Wishing you a Happy Easter, Pj x


Due to my Blog friend I have discovered your blog. And I become speechless. I just love it. I always wanted to make myself granny blanket. With help of your tutorials I think I will manage it. I will let you know!!!

And I will shore follow your blog, so don't stop now!!!

Best regards from Slovenia, Tanja


just letting you know I'm completely inspired by your crochet - evidence here www.gengetscrafty.wordpress.com - thanks! I have linked to you from there, but never fear my 3 readers are probably quite nice!


Dont you dare leave us Lucy----you have the most wonderful blog and so much fun to hear what your up to----I never get sick of it at all-------Loved your colours of your new wool----cant wait to see what you decide to do with it South Australia Australia


I'll never get bored with your Blog Lucy, you write beautifully and put a smile on my face every time I visit. And let's face it most of our lives follow a routine, they change with each season and repeat the following year. I find that really comforting, knowing that familiar activities will happen again. Please don't change.


sniffing..... mmmmmmmmmm......
me too!

Hi Lucy,
It's been only 3 days since I've found your blog and I must say it's quite inspiring. During these days I - bought yarn, a hook, checked on the web how to make granny squares and have already 36 of them. ;-) 3 days ago I was not a crocheting fan at all. :-) Let alone I don't think I knew the English word for "crochet".
I like your blog, all the colours spread across it, and the images of the flowers and your household too.
Thanks and keep going - while you like it, I think your audience will like it too.


You are so right about the sweet pea colours. But so wrong about being boring - there is something very comforting in your consitancy and cheerfulness and I treasure it.


what a lovely day. gosh it's years since I've been to Ilkley Moor, watching the children clamber on the boulders would terrify me, I don't do heights.........


How could I ever get bored of listening to all the lovely things you do, looking at all the lovely colours on your blog and then looking at your inspiring crochet!!!
Looks like a lovely Sunday, and the wool is lovely and what a bargain.

Very fan of your in no way boring blog, us copied your bag.


i love that you'd be concerned about any of us getting bored with your writing. i don't think it could happen. i enjoy the routine, the familiarity and the joy that fills these pages.

i agree with the book comment. i'd buy it : )

Your blog is never boring, its loaded with bits and pieces of your life and your passion for crochet..I love all the colors, love all the luchious yarn you found..
I cant wait to see your next project..
Take care,

Laura K.

Oh Lucy,
I have to admit that I live vicariously through your blog at times. I have always wanted to live in the UK and enjoy your descriptions and photos. I imagine myself living within in them and wonder why I am in the US. The simple things that pleasure you are the same the world over. Even though I am far away in a different country, I can relate to your daily observations. They are familiar and comfortable to me. I read your blog for comfort among all the creativity I love to see.

Your blog takes me back to the times when my kids were young (Now I'm a happy grandmother). It's so nice to see you enjoying and appreciating your life in all of it's aspects. I am relearning crochet through your blog and your colors are fabulous!!!


Hi Lucy
I enjoy reading about your everyday life and looking at all your projects and the interesting places you visit . I hope you don't decide to stop!
Hugs, Rhondi

G'day Lucy,
I love your blog for it's honesty & passion for your life & those you love ... we all need to remember to keep the passion in our life even for the little things we do & are done for us...
Yummmm your fibre buys looks great ... I'm afraid mine wasn't quite soo successful, but like they say 'persevere & all will be yours' & that's just what I did & eventually I found just what I wanted so am madly making some little flowers & leaves...
Now don't be laughing at me but I always thought that moors were low-lying boggy/marsh areas with tracks through them, so it was quite surprising & interesting to see such rock formations - ohh I love to watch rock climber & abseilers - not that you would catch me doing it though... have a great week, I look forward to reading more homely goodness this week[brings back memories of when I had youngins so do enjoy them cause this time will just fly by & before you can turn around they will be all grown wanting to do their own thing - sadly with the Big People]... OOroo ... Bethel


Oh, Lucy ....Your Post today was in "perfect" timing with my thoughts!!!! I have been so busy today that I actually forgot that it was Monday, and that your post would be here waiting for me. So when I remembered, it was very close to an "all out RUN" to the computer!:)

Then when that LOVELY photo of your present day crochet project appeared before me, I thought.....
"Sighhhhhhhhh! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!"....I'm HERE ....she's HERE....and ALL IS WELL ! :)
Then for some reason unknown to me, my NEXT thought was that your Blog is always DIFFERENT, and SOOOOOOO EXCITING ...I could just NEVER tire of it! Then I read that you were actually thinking one day it might be "Boring" to us !......N E V E R !!!!!! Next time you have such a thought as that...BLOCK IT OUT and start TYPING ! :) LOVED that GORGEOUS yarn too ! See ya tomorrow....BRIGHT and early next time!:)


Lucy, thank you very very much for your instructions. I started a blog too for my crochet projects, and I like to traslate your patterns in spanish, because I find very difficult to understand and I like to share this with all spanish-talk people, what do you think? may I have your permission?


funny you should mention if we get sick of hearing from you. i'm actually disappointed when "attic24" doesn't become bold when i refresh the blogs i follow. you're inspiring and make me happy.


I adore that granny square afghan piece!!!!
