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.

Dear Lucy,
Get well soon!
I am new to reading blogs, but feel compelled to write and tell you that I love reading your blog and seeing what you make. I too am a stay-at-home mum to 3 aged 9, 7 and 4 and really relate to your blog. Your home looks lovely and inviting. Since reading your blog, I haven't stopped 'hookin'!' What an inspiration! My friend and I are making plans to go to Yarndale now. Your tutorials are so clear and easy to follow. Thank you very much for sharing.


Get well soon lovely. Being unable to crochet *shudders* how rubbish! Lots of rest needed, for you and your fingers. Take care. x

So sorry! I'd say, concentrate on getting well. Then you'll be able to catch up faster and enjoy your craft more. There is one way to get the essentials of parenthood right: delegate whenever possible. Get well soon!


Sending love your way, Lucy. xxxxx

I know the feeling,I have not been able to do any crocheting for about three weeks now, I have a great deal of pain in my thumb and finger! I have been able to do some sewing,and have been hand sewing some hexagons,for my quilt, still some pain. But I can't not do any crafting! Hope you are feeling better soon


Oh golly Lucy, I had almost forgotten how wild life with young kids can be, especially if Mom has the nerve to be ill. Best wishes for sending that cold on its way. My boys are 17 and 21 so the wordplay when angry is a bit saltier... I long for those 3.5 year old days.


Hope you're feeling better, there's nothing worse than being denied creativity! I had a wrist ganglion last year and it made crochet difficult but thankfully it disappeared!


I hope your finger heals!! Hopefully your family can cooperate while you heal.

owww. Could it be RSI, boutonniere, something else horrid? She says interfering-ly - I would - like Steph above, go seeking out the GP. More because your crochet is more than woolly-winding and waggling....and you are clearly missing it. Hope things improve soon. Hope the littlies are being sympathetic to your hurtie..


Hi Lucy. Hope you soon feel a lot better, hopefully for the weekend. luv Val xx


Oh noooooo Lucy! Sorry to hear about your poorly finger, we all know how much you love to create :o( I too would be sad if I couldn't crochet. Try not to feel too down, think of this as an opportunity to catch up on other things (eg finishing the bower bird tutorial?! I'm sorry but you have teased me showing one sitting on your bedpost!). I really hope your finger heals quickly, rest up otherwise it may take longer to heal xx


Come on Lucy, I think your old enough to realise that the sun isn't shining every day! Things can only turn for the best now! And your little people...I can assure you...in a couple off years, when they all left home...you will miss them! Take care of that finger of yours! Have seen a doctor?

Angy Braine

Light & Love and healing vibes for that finger. This too shall pass. As always dropping by to visit your little corner of the world cheers me up and does wonders for my soul. Discovering that you are under the weather makes me wish we were neighbours so I could help out - drop off some soup, mond the kids... you know the kinda stuff that neighbours and buddies do. Sending you loads of neighbourly love...♥♥♥


Oh, I hate that you are both sick AND hurting. Hope all is well very soon. I love that you were able to end your post with happy thoughts. Bless you.


you poor thing! let yourself have a good wallow then you'll be ready to spring back into happy land renewed. sending you rainbows of energy.

I hope your finger pain subsides quickly and I can certainly remember my children causing havoc when I didn't feel well. I would go see my chiropractor if this was affecting my finger. I don't know if that is a branch of medicine that is availabe in England but they can work miracles. I agree with many of the others that I look forward to reading your entries so I am wishing you a speedy recovery from your cold and your finger!

Andrina T

Ohhh to not be able to crochet is the worst!! I have been on injury-imposed hiatus since May, when making your Easter wreath as a gift for my auntie set my tendonitis off to the most extreme ever. It was worth it since it came out lovely, but I'm itching to get the granny bunting going! I hope your kitchen ceiling and bathroom floor get sorted...3 & 1/2 is a challenging time! "ME DO IT!" is all I heard for months! Get some rest and some soup...and maybe earplugs? *hugs* <3

Di Ross

Hope you feel better soon. Same, head full of sinus, sore neck which is preventing me doing any craft.


Dear Lucy,
your posts are always so colourful and cheery. Thank you for that!
Get well soon.
Cheers, Sonja


Sending the warmest of thoughts from deep South Texas!! Hope that your finger heals quickly!

Liesbeth Houtman

Dear Lucy,
I hope you get well soon and take your time and rest. Much love from The Netherlands!

Try some ibuleve anti-inflammatory gel (over the counter at pharmacy) on the finger, it might help and won't do any harm.
Get well soon.
