About Me

  • Hello! 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

I have nearly finished my (well,your)ripple blanket ,only 5 rows to go.Lovely photos.


Glad you have had a lovely time Lucy, you deserve it. Christmas, however, has not been and gone, it lasts till Jan 6th, the Epiphany. A good excuse to carry on feasting, relaxing and indulging oneself I say!
Happy New Year to you all


Your home looks really festive and cosy. I can understand the 'Phew' comment. I think us mums deserve brownie points at this time of year. Happy New Year Lucy!

Hi. I recently discovered your blog and have read it right from the start. I love the way you make everyday life sound so exciting and your photos are beautiful. I've often thought of starting a blog but thought I would have nothing interesting to say..... But after reading yours maybe' I'll give it a go. Yours is such an inspiration.
I really enjoy your tales of Connievan. Next time you want to come to the N.West coast, try Lytham St Anne. Only 8miles from Blackpool (aka chavpool in our house!) but a world away in style. StAnnes is a proper old-fashioned sea side town......no amusements.....well only a handful of little things. A lovely beach,outdoor paddling pools, pier, promenade, bandstand, parks etc. Lytham is round the corner on the Ribble estuary. Nice prom to walk along and big green area to picnic on. Nice parks....
Maybe I should work for tourist board!! I think your family would like it.
Happy new year xx
PS how is your house so tidy already? I have 3 girls 16,13 and 10 and the house is like a tip!!


Happy New Year to you Lucy. I completed your star advent garland day by day in red and white and it hangs doubled back on itself under the mantlepeice. I am half way through your crochet wreath- it will have to be a New Years Wreath here :) Lots of holly leaves and some bright flocked baubles from Paperchase are ready to sdorn it so far...thank you for all the inspiration and fabulous tutorials.


I just wanted to thank you for sharing your Christmas home with us - so bright, homely and utterly inspiring. I wish you and your family all of the very best for the New Year. x


merry christmas.you have a beautiful house and very cosy i love it


I always love this time of the Christmas hols also....there is something lovely about being able to laze around watching films and reading etc.
I've loved having time to enjoy catching up with all my favourite friends in blogland also.

Here's to a Happy 2013 to you and yours Lucy

Lucy, you have become my guilty pleasure!! Whenever I should be on the laptop for my husband's work I just find my hand sliding over to the favourite tab and Lo! there is Attic 24!!!!
It makes me a happier person for the rest of the day...thank you.
Wishing you and your family a peaceful, healthy and happy 2013.

There's something peculiarly lovely about these post-Christmas days - relaxed and togethery (if that's a word!) without the pressure that can build up around Christmas Day itself. Enjoy every minute of them, Lucy! E xx


what an awesome blogpost. reading it made me feel as if i was there with you. I so miss the time when my children were little and enjoyed Christmas so much! (My sons are now 25 and 20 yrs old).


A beautifully cosy post, Lucy! YAY on completing another blanket. :)

Wishing you and your lovely family a Happy New Year! :)


Your house is so lovely dear! That last picture is so homey and cozy looking, fire and yarny goodness and oh, if one single image exemplified what I wanted my own home to feel like, that would be it. xoxo, Jess


Fantastic pic's lucy!! Always enjoy visiting here. Have our family xmas gathering this weekend so lots of fun to be had.

I recently found your blog and it is officially the first blog I am (definitely) addicted to! I work very hard at not getting sucked into the virtual world, (because I really like the real one!), but reading your blog doesn't feel virtual at all. I think that's the charm and charismatic pull. Thank you for representing the real out here!

Also, I've not thought about how wonderful the 27th is, and you're right, so thanks for the illumination. My favorite day is Christmas Eve-Eve, anticipation at its highest!

Thanks again and please keep writing and posting and hooking!


Our Christmas is always a bit extended as we see different Grandparents and aunties throughout the week between Christmas and new year but there has been plenty of quiet relaxing time going on as well.
I'm loving the look of your ripple, I'm about halfway through my own blanket following your pattern and need to take some more pictures too, I hope to have more time for it, now all the Christmas present crafts are finished (or nearly finished!)


Oh your home is so cozy! It sounds as if you had a wonderful Christmas <3 I have some new yarn and I'm going to begin my ripple afghan (very soon!)
Happy 2013 to you!


Your home is SO cozy, and looks so warm and full of harmony. I think it's called love...very important to a family home...lucky you!


Sounds like my day here, quiet, peaceful, relaxing. Your home always looks so warm and cosy, but that last picture is perfectly wonderful!

I adore your blogs! Always look forward to the next one!


Your house is so neat and clean! Mine still looks like a train wreck despite my best efforts! lol My children are all adults, too! Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year to you and your family!


Im glad you had such a wonderful, relaxing Christmas morning. I can't wait to see your finished ripple!


My daughters are 27 and 28 now and I have all their Sylvanian Family toys in the loft. I could never bear to get rid of it.
