I have just finished a little birdie and I love it , I am more of a knitter but I was told about your blog and had to have a peek. I love it! You have inspired me to have a go at crochet and now I am "hooked" .
I also have a wool shop and a lot of my customers follow you so we can chat about what is going on next..... Long may it continue , and thanks for the happy colours and inspired projects x


I could crochet but never read patterns because I have dyslexia. I've found it so frustrating till recently when I discovered your blog and your beautifully simple instructions. Thank you Lucy, you rock. I am now crocheting for the first time in years and loving it.


happy blogoversary, dear Lucy! I've been away from your blog for a while, catching up with the things in my life and my blog, but I always remember you and your lovely colorful world:) It always makes my day bright!
Have a wonderful week!


Happy Birthday!!
Congratulations! I am just starting out on the whole blogging!!! I love reading your posts!


Lucy, such a great post, you have inspired me. After prevaricating for a whole year, I read your words and I've started a blog. It's so scary! But thanks for the inspiration.


Congratulations. .I absolutely love your enthusiasm,hope you never lose it


5 years! Thats a true blogging milestone right there. Most blogs don't last 3 months :). Congratulations on your success but honestly, you deserve it, this blog is gorgeousness personified and it translates worldwide. I am just about to share you shamelessly with all of my blogging friends and I KNOW that they will adore your blog as much as I now do. I am a night time person but I get up at 3.30am to read my rss feed read blogs (over 500 of them to date) because each and every blog is precious to me and reflects something inside me that I find valuable. Your blog just got added to the sparce "craft" section and opens up another facet of my personality that needs exploring. I have my own little personal library of blogs, customised to my own peculiar lein and your wonderful most delicious blog is now firmly entrenched in my "must read!" blog section. Cheers for adding so much colour to my mornings :)


Congratulations Lucy, what a milestone to have reached, Attic 24 has always been one of my favourite blogs and has encouraged me to bring more colour into my home. I think I originally found your blog when then was a small mention of it in Country Living Magazine. It must be at least 3 years ago - how time flies and thank you for all your inspiration!

I creep into Attic24 when I feel a bit under the weather - and while wandering through it, my spirits are lifted and I realize how wonderful life is! I am looking forward to your next blog.


You're such an inspiration Lucy. Thank you so much for sharing!

Happy Bloggy Birthday ♥


Thank you, thank you Lucy for sharing your little corner of the world with the rest of us--your beautiful attic. You are such an encouragement and a blessing. I learned how to crochet about 18 months ago and your creations are always at the top of my list. Your patterns and tutorials are so carefully put together that even I, a novice, can understand and feel confident making them. I can not say how thankful I am to have found your "piece of heaven". I pray that you are continually blessed in the next 5 years! Yay for "blogdays"!! xoxox

since you you told us that you read all you comments here i go again. Lucy You are fantastic. You are a kind and lovely soul,you are generous for sharing all that you do, in such detail that it is impossible not to reach the final result.You are fullfilled with beauty and simplicity, and i thank God everyday for you and your family. Im from Brazil, My english is not good enough to show my consideration for all you do for me, but in short, you are such an inspiration! Im doing a blanket...is taking forever... i have decided that i wanted to do it in single crochet, because the stitchs are close enough to give more protection against the cold weather... im doing it in the same pattern o of colours that you do and i already love t it. Almost everyday i go to your blog and say to mayself that i have to become more productive, like you are... but again i just can be exatcly who iam. That´s OK. one day after another, and ill be there... anyways... keep doing the nice job of being yourself.. we´ll be thanfull forever...

God Bless you and you family xxx
