About Me

Thank you!


I do love so much your blog Lucy!!! Because it's a infinte source of happiness and joy, because everytime that I want to get inspired I know I can come here and find something wonderful to crochet, because everytime I feel sad I know I can come here and I'm sure your late post will cheer me up!
So THANK YOU SO MUCH for your blog!!!!


Hi Lucy! I am new to your blog and it looks to be like a new bright spot to my days. To be perfectly honest I am just starting to crochet and haven't actually made anything yet but looking at your beautiful work is getting me all excited to do so. I just have to find something easy enough.
I'm a happily married 29 year old stay at home mom as well to a 1 1/2 year old little munchkin named Eli.
I love being a mommy but I've decided I need a hobby to help keep myself balanced and I'd like to eventually be able to make something for him to cuddle with:-)
I look forward to learning some things from your blog. Thank you for sharing!
Happy 2010!

P.S. The pics of outside your window made me extremely jealous. A goal of mine is to someday make it to your neck of the woods. I've always wanted to travel around the UK. It's a long way from Missouri, USA.


So many great photos... Thanks for the peek into your daily life, and thanks for keeping such an excellent blog! Hugs from Stockholm, Sweden :)

Truly Wonderful Lucy, thank you so much for sharing your colourful inspirational world x


great, i still postpone my end of year review :)


I do indeed enjoy visiting your blog. It makes me happy just to look at your photos and fill my eyes with colour. Such a happy, cheerful space you have created. Thank you! Happy 2012!

I too am grateful you started your blog and continue to write your blog! I love the colour of your world and how you bring that colour into your home and everyday life. May 2012 be full of joy for you and your family :)

I have been so inspired by your lovely projects and images...i have just started crocheting the ripple blanket a month ago during a difficult time and it has been such a great time for me to sit, think, pray and create. Learning how creating and healing can go hand in hand.
i also started a blog to communicated updates and document of my husbands illness...i never imagined that blogging and healing go together either!!
thank you from Prague.


Beautiful pictures...lovely colors,
your blog are very inspiring...

My dear Lucy....thank you for your lovely sunshine-y blog. Although I freely admit to "lurking", you bring a smile to my face when I peek at the bright-ness of your world...thank you :-)

Please, please, please post a tea cozie pattern!



Thank you so much. I smile every time I visit Attic 24 and there's a new homey, cosy post waiting for me. You're a home away from home. I love your humble triumphantness in the simple things like fresh flowers and sofa sessions with mugs of hot stuff. It makes me think I should buy more tulips. Completely after my own heart. You bring colour to my small grey corner of London, so thank you. And keep it up, they will treasure it some day.


I'm so glad I found your blog; the wonderful pictures and your fantastically cheerful outlook on life have brightened many a dreary office day. This year review just sums up everything that's great about Attic 24.

I'm not sure what the etiquette is about sharing blogs - I'm just starting my own and I'd like to put your site on my blogroll. I hope you don't mind, but if you do just let me know.


Beautiful pics Lucy! What a gorgeous, colourful world you inhabit. Wishing you a happy 2012 :)


Happy New Year Lucy! I have loved reading your blog for the last two years now and you've certainly inspired me to add some color in my life and even gave me a hankering for brightly colored boiled sweets! All the best for 2012 xx


Happy 2nd Birthday to little man. He was born on my 50th birthday, so that's how I remembered!

What beautiful memories you are creating for yourself and your children Lucy :-) As you already know I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog and these end of year posts remind me why! happy New Year to you all and here's to another year chock full of Attic life xx


Awesome post, Miss Lucy! I think one of the things that continues to draw me back to your blog time and again (aside from all the lovely, colorful hooky!) is your focus on all the 'little' things that bring you joy. Love the peeks at YOUR littles and all that you bring to their lives ~ the color, creativity and inspiration. You are fun, festive...whimsical! And you joyfully share that with all of us! So very kind ~ thank you, Miss Lucy!


Thank you Lucy for you blog!! Your blog has almost single handed taught me to crochet and I love it! I have always been a crafter/quilter/painter but never wanted to learn to crochet when my late Mom wanted to teach me and needless to say I now regret that teenage decision. Your photos portray such a colourful and joyful home they bring a smile to my face always. I live in an exceedingly hot area of South Africa called the Karoo and your photos of verdant green English countryside and gardens are a balm for the soul when it is 40 degrees C outside and everything is looking fried!!! Thank you for sharing all this with "us"! Bev X


Hi Lucy,
I love to visit here too. Would you have enough room in your house if we all came in person?
I really like the way you preserve your children's anonymity by giving them special blogging names. I don't even miss not knowing their real names. I picture you using these names as "pet names". I call my youngest (almost 7) "Honey Bee".
Have you seen the movie "The Shine of Rainbows". It's beautiful, a real tear -jerker but beautiful. Anyway, the "Mum's " taste for color reminds me of you.
You would love it.
May you and your sweet family know the blessings of The Creator of all color - - the One who put the rainbow in the sky -- The Lord God, Jesus Christ.


Happy New Year to you and all at Attic 24 Lucy!

So looking forward to seeing all your makes of 2012. You are such an inspiration Lucy :o)
Thankyou kindly for making me smile and sigh with appreciation every time you write a post :o)

Have a lovely weekend, and take care,
Kindest regards,
Donna xx


Hi Lucy
I've been following your blog for a few weeks now and and not commented before but I wanted to say that, like a lot of people your blog really brightens my day. I've made three or four of your tutorials already and am hoping to start my own blog soon to record the goings on in our household. So thank you and keep it up! Xxxxxx

Actually Mummy...

What lovely colours you have in your home! I would love to live there! I would like to get round to sorting through my photo files but I fear it would take me decades!
