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

Beautiful. I can never get over how cozy comfortable your living room looks. Everytime you post a picture I go chasing down my man squealing (well, maybe not chasing him down, but I usually show it off to him if he's nearby :3)

Are those new hyacinth bulbs or are they the same ones? Did you chill them to get them to bloom again? (silly questions from someone who loves plants but is completely foreign to the ways of the green thumb, haha!)

Lucy- did you ever make a tutorial for the crochet heart from Feb. I think? Trying to pick up the stitches from your close up but having trouble. thanks!!- Jennifer


you make my life good with your writing and pictures...
I have printed your pictures and stuck them to my home-journal so that i can view them everyday and be inspired....
Where did you get the mirror on the mantel it looks so Indian...


Adore all of your colorful inspiration!!!

Come enter my giveaway from Empress of the Eye! You will love the interview!

Oh, I'm almost crying. This post makes me miss England so much... I lived there for 17 years, but now I'm back in Norway. Beautiful pictures, and what a view across your town.
Have a lovely rest of the week!
Love, Solvi

I love your blog and always look forward to reading your entries. Come visit me. I've linked my new blog to yours. http://ethnicgirlcrochets.blogspot.com


Dear Lucy,

I have been following Attic24 for a couple of years now. I love the bright colours, the moments of everyday beauty and the amazing crochet. Like you, I'm a stay-at-home Mummy who crafts (when I can find a moment)! I am very much a knitter but you have inspired me to give crochet a try and I'm embarking on my very first Granny Square Blanket.

I have finally plucked up the courage to start a blog with a dear friend of mine. http://nimblefingersandsteadyeyebrows.blogspot.com/ It's very much a work in progress, but I am loving the journey that we're making. I was hoping that you wouldn't mind if we linked to Attic24 in our 'blogs that we love' section- it has been such an inspiration to me. Please let me know if you would be happy for us to do so.

Best wishes,

Dreaming Bear

That's it. I'm moving in with you!!!


have just discovered your blog, love it, and as a new one to the hook you have inspired me enormously. Now I just have to put down my needle and open the dusty drawer with the hooks. Thank you :)


Hi, Lucy.

I just thought I'd let you know that your first piccy in this post was the initial inspiration point for my latest painting. The painting itself looks nothing like your photo, but it was where the idea came from (it's a great photo :D).

If you are interested, you can find the painting here - http://ffacets.blogspot.com/2010/11/colour-experiments-fallen.html

I'm also inspired by your second photo and hope to have a go at painting fireworks in the near future (I have two little ones under 3, so finding time is the biggest challenge, which I know you understand :D).

Thanks for letting us into your attic and sharing a piece of yourself. You inspire so many people, of which I am only one.

(up at 3am, so I have a chance at the computer :D)

lucy, my husband and i are traveling to england/scotland in fall of 2011 and i wonder if you and i could email about accommodations and places to see. i have gone through your archives and jotted names down of several places i want to see in person - i know you are busy and that you don't know me, so if that's not an option thanks for the photos and info i have!! jkj

I'm so happy I stumbled upon your blog. It is a pleasure to meet you. I loved your post and the photos were lovely. The visuals were breathtaking from your friend's window and your Attic is lovely, filled with joy and color.

Thank you for such a wonderful visit to England today. It's one of my favorite places on Earth.

Have a great week.





Dear Attic 24 ~
I went to a yard sale and found a vintage crochet pattern for a crocheted hood with attached scarf. Oh so cute. It's called design 500. If you want me to photo copy it and email it to you , let me know :)


Hyacinths and Guy Fawke's, and views of the english country side. It makes me think that maybe we could up and leave Oz for a few years in England...so long as we are out in the country somewhere.

It's already summer here, and far too too hot for Hyacinths. The fan is going, the air and the afternoon both languid, and although it is lovely the thought of winter and a roaring hot fire sounds just great!


So many pretty pictures! But "hands down", the best ones are the Little People's hands! I so miss those. My Little People are nearly grown. I don't say it out loud, but I can't wait for grandchildren. I can't get enough of little people!


Love bonfire night too - for me it starts the countdown to Christmas! Could I please ask where you got that lovely rainbow sun-catcher? I would love to get something like that for our (sometimesunny porch. Thanx, Lucy x


How funny! I saw those baubles last week and immediately thought of you Lucy :)


A lovely weekend. Amazing firework photograph. Hope you are enjoying this weekend too, best wishes Pj x


Hi, my name is Mati. I´m from Spain and I love your blog, i read it whenever I can.
Your home looks very cozy and your crochet is so funny.
I would be very happy if you could take a look at mine and send me your advice.


i love these pictures!


That image of the fireworks is stunning. It would make a lovely print or postcard.


Hello Lucy,

Fabulous blog! I couldn't find your email address so I hope it's OK to contact you via comments like this.

I adore your spring wreath and I have some already made crochet flowers I have been wanting to use up - this would be a perfect project for them, I do hate leaving them to languish. I will be showing what I did with them on my blog - is it OK for me to add a link to your tutorial?

Connie B

I must tell you, you have inspired me to pick up my crochet needle and lay down the knitting ones for a bit. After viewing your beautiful house, I have pulled out my stash of yarn. Love the round pillow!
