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.

I so love visiting. Your crochet is so comforting and colorful. You photos are wonderful. Thanks for sharing your talents and art. :)


Hi Lucy
I tried to link to this site before but it didn't work, so I'll try again:) 500 colors http://www.felissimo.co.jp/global/
I really enjoy your blog, and you have inspired me to do a lot of crocheting:) Thank you.


It looks utterly gorgeous, I would never have the patience to do something like that. The ends to sew in oh my would have me running for the padded room

It takes a lot of patient and imagination in creating such piece. Wish I have more patient in crocheting so I could finally finish my masterpiece.


Loving the beer n hooky, natter and slurp idea.
Once again you have done a great job:) I was in a new town the other day and saw lots and lots of yarn...my eyes popped out of their sockets nearly:) I bundled a heap up in my arms and then sadly put it down as i didnt know how much i would need, i am finishing of another blanket of yours first then i want to start the stripey one...it has been so popular, ive seen it pop up on blogs everywhere You are an inspiration, i too was glad to see you had posted too:)


Just having a look through and can see that these flowers are the same ? as the little picot flowers you made previously. I like the way you have turned them into squares it makes for a loverly little flower square. Am intrigued to see the final result of the blanket you are making.


Another lovely design!

I have a question for you. I am doing some trial runs of the Granny Stripe pattern. How did you get yours to not have such large 'holes' in it? It seems that each little 3Tr cluster rests nicely in it's neighbors space. But mine make a big hole there instead. I looked up some other's on Flikr and saw that most of them turned out like yours, but some had large 'holes' like mine. Is it the yarn? Mine is acrylic. I tried some other yarn that was softer, but it was a bit thinner, and got the same holey results. Anyone know how to remedy that?

Your colour combos are totally stunning! Love the new blog header by the way - lots of fun. And REALLY love the sound of your Monday nights!

Hello Lucy, first of all I must say that I love your blog, and follow it avidly. This is a funny thing to do I suppose, but I can't leave a message on Kirstie's 'Rubys Mamma Made It' blog to ask her where has she been, and is she ok? Do you know anything, as I found her blog from your favourites?


I am mostly a silent reader. But I am visiting your wonderful blog every week or so. Did you know your blog was mentioned in a dutch womans magazine. A special edition of Libelle with 115 ideas for make-it-yourself items for childrensrooms and for the rest of the house. It mentions your blog and says: an english blog with colorfull crochetideas... Famous at last!


Catching up on blog reading today and saw a giant mention of you. Here in the states there's a big brick/mortar store with also a major online presence called The Loopy Ewe. She also has a blog, and what was the latest subject. Crochet and YOU. Seems she learned to crochet at TNNA a big yarn trade show and somehow found Attic 24 and now is happily working on her first blanket. Be sure and read the comments too! Lots more exposure and you are definitely deserving of it


Those are so pretty - I want to make some but I ABSOLUTELY cannot start another project until I get stuff done around the house!

I am just learning knitting and I always like your work of crochet.These are truly sweet flower granny squares and I appreciate your work.There is nice color combination you have used.


It's beautiful. I'm going to have to make that one too! Still working on the Granny Stripe and loving it. The colors are amazing and so cheerful. Thank you for the inspiration and wonderful designs.

I am happy that you have been able to find "ME" time!
Can't wait for the post on how to do them!

I love these flowery squares, and the way you have put squares of different sizes together, I might 'borrow' this idea one of these days! I've also discovered acrylic yarn at my local pound shop. It's really soft and comes in lots of colours. I've just knitted some arm-caps to cover a sofa, and they look amazingly professional. I surprise myself sometimes!
He he xxxxx


Your blog is such an inspiration for me.
The colours, the patterns and your ideas.
I used some of your patterns and made two plaids, the third is in progress and I also chrochet the bag.
Greetings and have a nice weekend.


So very pretty! I love the little flowers in the middle, and the colors, and the combination of large and small squares...oo i just LOVE it all!
