Hi Lucy, I just wanted to tell you about quite a coincidence (can hardly breathe by the way, your blog is stunning) found a link to a crochet tutorial of yours on an Australian blog only to find that you are practically my neighbour! I lived in Addingham for years, immediately recognised one of your pictures then found good old Bolton Abbey underneath! (I have a knitting and quilting shop in Farsley, Leeds now). I am sitting in on the crochet classes I'm holding in my shop, nobody could teach me when I was young because I am left handed and your blog has inspired me no end. Should have been working today (customers were practically helping themselves!)but was crocheting flowers indtead. Thank you sooo much for the inspiration, so pleased to have found you! Clare


You're posts are so beautiful and uplifting to read! Thank you. :) I have linked you in my blog post today as I completed my first Granny Squares ever, and used your join as you got method to turn them into a blanket! Thanks so much!

You are linked in this post http://thingstreasured.blogspot.com/2010/03/socks-and-blankets-oh-my.html


Your cookies should be pretty healthy, shouldn't they? Oatmeal and apricots aren't bad. Really, I'm very impressed that you have time to bake anything with the baby, laundry, house cleaning, cooking, feeding people, etc. etc. etc. I too get terribly excited about yarn. What does that mean about us, that we are so happy about thick, colored string? LOL

So, how did the days go by and I missed this one. Thanks goodness I found it this afternoon. Great Dafs and even your laundry looks fun. Thanks for the side view of the little guys. What a fun shot.

Bring it on, I"m ready for a Luc Ta-Da.... Wait...let me get a cup of tea first....

hi Luce

i just read your comment on Vanessa's blog and wanted to come and give you a ((((((hug))))))


When will we be seeing that ta-dah post, Lucy? I can hardly wait to see your beautiful finished blanket!

All the best,


I have to say when I woke up today I was not feeling well, and then I pulled up your blog! The colors always help soothe my soul. Your flowers are so beautiful, I can hardly wait for mine to bloom. And well, babies just have to make you feel better! Sometimes when I am feeling really bad and need a lift I go in and look at your Flicker photos and before long I am smiling and feeling better. The colors are great therapy for me!! Luv you and your blog - keep posting all those beautiful, colorful pictures of your life!!!



I have just found your blog and I really like it! Lovely pictures

Best regards from Ann in Sweden


Just checking if Ta-Daa moment is about to burst out ;-)

Hi Lucy, gorgeous photos as usual! Have you received the baby sling yet? I hope so! Love, Kathyx


I have never added a comment to this blog even though I am a huge fan but I feel I must given the last comment made. I visited Elspeths blog last night to see the message her husband had left and was totally dumbstruck. It was through Elspeth's blog that I discovered Attic24 as she was always referring to the colour and vitality here. I popped my head into the Attic and had to read every single post from the beginning. An addiction soon followed! But I will miss Elspeth even though I never 'knew' her and I will always be grateful that she introduced me to you.

Dear Lucy
I know that you have Elspeth Thompson on your bloglist, and I wondered if you had heard that she died last Thursday...? The Women's Room have a lovely obituary in our blogland. Love Martina


Crocheting on the floor (not to mention FINISHING something) beside a happily kicking baby sounds like the perfect way to spend an afternoon to me!


Ahhh....your flowers are very pretty Lucy. I've been playing in the dirt too :) Have a look-see on my flickr if you'd like, it's called "SoMe InSpIrATioN". I know your hours are full from dawn to dusk. I've also made your bag to hold my threads which is also on my flickr for all to see, named "tHe LuCy BaG" :) Hope you have a wonderful week and I look forward to your next posting :)

Your blog always has such lovely bright pictures and is a joy to read!


You're amazing, you accomplish so much and with a new baby too.


Hi Lucy,
Your blog is a rainbow of color and beauty and your posts are lovely and make the reader feel as if they are there with you! Thank you for sharing your everyday life and your wonderful creations with all of us.

I find it impossible to pick just one favorite of all the fabulous things you create, but would love to know if you have a pattern for that awesome yarn bag you crocheted? I spotted it in a recent picture and love it!


Just discovered your blog. You take some truely gorgeous photographs!

Dreaming Bear

This sounds like the perfect day to me! Can't wait to see the zig zaggy goodness!


Dear Lucy: lovely flowers (again), lovely baking (again)! I made the cookies myself, and they are deviously easy...


Tried to trackback to this post, but I can't see whether it did or not. Did you get any messages?

Enjoy the lovely sunday (assuming you're having the same gorgeous (though cold) spring whether on your side of the water!

Greetings from Armagh


I can see that the spring is already near you. All the best and your pictures are bautiful ;o) Regards from Iceland

Quack and Quill
