Hi Lucy, good to see you back! Noone has commented here on this, but has anyone told you about what has been going on in your absence on Ravelry. There is voting going on for "Top 50 Mom Craft Blogs, 2011" - your voters have managed to get you into 2nd place atm. Take a look on Ravelry under 'Vote for Attic 24'. Everyone has been voting like crazy to get you there!

Welcome Home Lucy....I have followed your blog for some time now and it has encouraged me to get crocheting and have made great progress all thanks to you! I have something that I would like to send you as a thank you for brightening our days with your posts, but can't find an email address to contact you? Can you contact me so that I could get details on where to send it? Nikki x


Welcome home!!! So lovely to hear you had a wonderful time with your family ♥ Very much looking forward to reading more about it! Don't mind the post-holiday chaos too much, take it easy and enjoy!


Excellent 242 pictures reminds me of what I'm like with a camera and holiday.

Dorset is such a lovely place look forward to seeing more pic's.



Hi Lucy,

I am sorry to pop this in the comments but I cannot see an email address, apologies if I am being an idiot! I would be very glad if you could please email me regarding your inclusion in a magazine article I am working on.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you,



Welcome home Luce. x


Hi Lucy,

another Lucy here! Just wanted to drop you a line finally. I realise you get inundated with passionate followers of your blog and it's easy to see why! I just love love love reading about what you have been up to and your WIPs!
I found your blog when I was teaching myself to crochet at Christmas and I have been 'hooked' (tee hee!) ever since! I really appreciate the detailed tutorials they were a lifesaver and I must admit that I have now got the bug of making blankets-they are just oh so yummy and snuggly and a total pleasure to watch grow! It freaks me out sometimes when I read your comments as I always agree!
I love your eye for colour, it really does amaze me how you produce such colourful hooky treats! I wish I had a wool shop near me that sold such delicious colours!!!! Abakhan near me in Manchester sells such insipid stuff :O( I do love the stylecraft range though, nice a cheap for big blankets and really lovely colours. I liked your link through to the bundle packs will defo get some of those in my shopping basket!
Ok I have just realised that I have written a monstrous email. Anyway best leave you to unpacking and putting on a zillion wash loads!
p.s it hasnt escaped me that I am another Lucy from the North of England who loves getting the hooks out now and who holidays in Dorset-woah!! spooky!!
take care, hope to speak to you soon,

Lucy xx

Welcome home! Must come over for that festival one day. I'm an Aussie whose G'parents are from Leeds. Grew up with stories of 'home' but have yet to see it.

Barbara Moore

Love the rocks at the beach photo? I'm so happy that you had such a wonderful time. Of course, I'm glad to see you back home also. lol

Hugs XX


Please turn these photos into postcards and prints - I will be the first to buy them!


Hello, Lucy! :-) Those pebbles seem handmades. Beautiful!



Just wanted to say hi and can't wait to hear more about your holidays!


Welcome back home! I'm glad you had a wonderful time. Here in Australia, we are in autumn and currently enjoying some beautiful weather, although rain is forecast for the weekend and into next week.

I am having a lovely time looking back through your blog. You have inspired me to buy the Made by Me book for my stepdaughter for Xmas. I am so going to enjoy helping her to make things out of it. She is 12 but a complete craft novice so I think this will inspire her!!

Miss holly

So happy you had such a wonderful time!!!! Looks like lots of us missed you by the number of comments so far...can't wait to see pics!!!!!!


Glad it was such a good break, sounds lovely and wasn't the weather just the most glorious Easter holiday weather - I don't EVER remember such an amazing April.
Do you think of moving down to that neck of the woods, ever? You seem to love it so much and love the sea, etc - I wondered if you would ever make the move down-country?

Dear Lucy love the close up of the pebbles. Weather has been wonderful
this past fortnight. Slightly nippy down here today. Look forward to some more of your pics.xx



Been browsing through your blog, its fab!

Quick question... was looking at your little flowers pattern - where did you get all the wonderful buttons?? I thought the box was Cath Kidson, did the buttons come with it???

Thank you


Shirley Flavell
