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.

Ooh Lucy fab pictures and so like so like Nicky Nook on the other side of the Pennines (yes Lancs!). Have a lovely festive holiday and loads of crochety colour in the New Year. Your colour choices are inspired and scrummy. thanks

Nice to see the light back, but it was a very stormy day here, so no outdoorsy stuff. Enjoyed seeing your walk though. Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas, and hope your boy is soon back to strength


Oh my, I want those birds! They're a bit "Labyrinth" looking aren't they?! Love them!
Glad to hear he's on the mend too.

Oh, and I started my first Granny Stripe blanket day before yesterday :)

Dear Lucy - Once again, lovely pictures, I feel like I have walked with you! Glad little man is on the mend. I wish you and your family Merry Christmas. I hope you all enjoy much happiness, love and good health! Thanks for letting me glimpse a litle slice of the English life style.


What wonderful photos, you have an amazing Solstics, it rained all day here, hardly seemed to get light.
You have my shopping bag!
Have a lovely Christmas.

Hi Lucy
just hoping you saw this on the BBC about your cloud. Familiar with them as they sometimes appear above Mt Fuji.

Wow, I wish I could take a walk there too. Too far away I'm afraid and there's a big sea in the way. It's still nice looking at the pictures though.

Those birds look a bit scary! Glad your boy is feeling better - these lurgies can last way too long. Looking foward to some crochet and ginger cake over next few days. I made the cake from the mag - its a bit dry so might have to ice it after all but it won't stop me from eating it!! Merry Christmas to the ATtic.

Dear Lucy,
What are the wonderful looking birds in your photo? They look very interesting. Never saw anything like them here in America. At least I don't think so.
LOVE THE HOLLY!!!I have a wreath on my door. sadly it is not real like yours, wish it was.

Glad Little Man is on the mend, just in time to celebrate! No fun being sick at Christmas. It is warm and sunny here in FL and from our home to yours...
Merry Christmas, Happy Winter Solstice, Happy Crafting,Happy Hearts, & Happy Homes! Donna

Lovely pics in lovely countryside. I picked holly and berries early Dec and kept them in black plastic bag in the garage till I needed them, Glad I did because the birds have eaten ALL the berries now. Your other red berries look like cotoneaster. Happy christmas and thank you for all your crochet patterns this year.


What a beautiful day you had, thank you for sharing it with us. And I'm really pleased to hear about Little Man's progress - just in time for the big day!

Lucy thank you for your soothing and inspiring blog. I wish you and yours a very blessed Christmas. I hope you get some time to put your feet up!

Hi, I've recently found your blog and absolutely love it!!!! Why haven't I found it sooner. Love your descriptions, pictures and general descriptions. I'm relatively new to crochet, but find your patterns easy to follow. So pleased to hear your little man is on the mend and wish you and your family a very merry christmas and all the best for the new year. Long may you continue your good work. xx

Ha they were totally talking about those clouds on BBC Breakfast this morning!

(I'm sure someone's already told you but I don't have time to read through the eleventy billion comments that you get!)

Merry Christmas!

Jill Saunders

Merry Christmas to you Lucy! 2011 turned out to be the year I developed an actual excitement about crocheting; all from your blog. I've crocheted since grade school but usually just to fill the time. Since finding you online last January I'm now on a mission....to crochet with as much color & "wow" as possible. What fun I've had!!


Here's the cloud you saw!
