I absolutely adore your blog and your fiber work. More power to "bonkers"!!! I discovered Attic24 a few years ago and was looking for a pattern today for a throw to cheer up my new, totally wrong, first (and last? at age 62) house. Went down the rabbit hole of reading posts in order, starting somewhere mid-2009, and having the most lovely, cozy time doing so. Can't wait to order more yarn from Wool Warehouse (they do great delivery to the US--makes it so easy to supply myself with materials for your projects) and get started. Thank you so much for all you do!

Hello, I found your BLOG last evening and I fell in love with your photography and how you have managed to captured the essence of what home life with little ones, laundry, everyday chores can be like. Oh how I remember it all, and because of the way you have captures it through the photos etc. I have been looking back on the experience with new eyes. I see more clearly no how much of a blessing that being able to be home with my little ones had been. Not always easy, but always fulfilling!! keep up the great work.Greetings from Canada, Susanne. p.s. we were in the U.K. in 2009, loved it!!

Lucy, thank you for your down to earth personality. Was looking for free patterns to do some crochet and came upon your blog. You have made my day. I am now with terminal cancer at 66 and enjoy other people's joys. I have 3 grown children and 6 grandchildren spread over the United States. I was a single mother and raised them by myself. The 3 have made me proud! Please give the little ones kisses on the forehead from an old grandma that they call "nana", God bless you and yours and keep on blogging. Nana

I have just discovered your blog and totally love it. You are truly talented and your use of colour is inspiring! I am hoping to treat myself to a good camera this year to photograph my de-cluttering antics. Can I ask what camera you use to capture such vibrant images?


I love your blog! I just found it today, while trying to figure out how to crochet flowers! I love your pictures of your socks, and your brightly decorated home, and the mommy and me bracelets. I'm so happy to have found you, that I have put a link from my blog to yours! Thank you! I want to follow you, but I'm not sure how.


after reading all the comments, i found the one that said that you had a baby boy!!!!

woo hoo

yeah yeah yeah

love your blog and have been reading all the back posts since i discovered it two weeks ago - and now happy news about bump24

cant wait to hear all about it - imagine it was an exciting event with the weather and all that snow! hope all went well!

maybe your husband could drop us a note to let us know all is well!


Okay now what was that "see you soon". It sounds myserious to me... Is a little Bump24 becomming BabyReal?


I find your blog photographs among the most inspiring I've ever seen! I LOVE your use of color. Your home must be such a bright, happy place! Blog on!


So pleased to hear that a boy has safely arrived - you had us all worried there. Many, many congratulations.


I hope all is well with you and your family. Like everyone else, starting to wonder if your family has grown to 5!


Congratulation Lucy on the safe arrival of Bump 24 Hope you are managing to get some sleep.
Look forward to seeing you here again soon

Love to your family
Jane xx


My, we are an impatient bunch, aren't we!? I was starting to wonder whether Bump24 had made an appearance, looking at the above post, it looks like it has!
If it has, Congratulations! Look forward to hearing from you when you get around to it, but I'm guessing you'll be rather busy. I'm getting all excited.. Lots of love to you all! x


Dear Lucy - I am echoing what many other of your faithful followers have thought - has Bump24 joined you at Attic24?

I hope all is well with you and your family, and look forward to hearing your news soon.

I love all those pictures - you have wonderfully colourful, vibrant, homely home!

Miss E

I have to agree with you also in that I absolutely love writing my blog too, its very therapeutic and makes me take notice of things that would normally pass me by. I look forward to reading your blog in the coming year. Happy 2010. Miss E x
