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. 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 started a wavy ripply blanket months ago and its still not finished. I've lost interest a little, so I'm going to try and get it completed!


Oh, Lucy, you are such an inspiration! Your blankets are not only useful but true works of art. Thank you for sharing.

Rita Miller

Lucy, been enjoying your blog-again and as usual. So glad you are here. You are a bright spot. God bless you and your family.


OMG, I love those cakes and things in your basket. I love your blog, always so pleasant to read, and your house and your little garden. It makes me want to move to England... I'm not a creepy stalker I swear! :D


We had a den day yesterday too. Happy holidays. I have a great blouse make on my blog at the moment - check it out.

Thanks for sharing Lucy, the simple things of life surely are the most special things x


Aww the simple pleasures of life, love the blanket tents, I still remember making blanket tents with the blankets my great nan made when I was little, we just need the sunshine back sooo cold, where has the Summer gone

Lucy, love your posts. You seem to make time to smell the roses and enjoy the little things in life. Are you able to tell us the colours you have used in your seaside ripple. I think I have several of the colours but would need to top up on those I haven't got rather than buying the pack this time. Your help would be appreciated.


I agree with you, Lucy, that it is sometimes the smallest things that give us the greatest pleasure. I love the remnants of your holiday at the bottom of your yarn bag, your yarndale banner and your new crocs. And I love that your children made vans out of the blankets - imaginative and creative like their mom! Have a wonderful day. Susan

Hello Lucy,

Lovely to see you enjoying all 'the little things', how lovely they are! Loving the dramatic cloud photos. The Yarndale sign is great!!! Shame that summer is almost gone, but nice to see your holiday treasures! Looking forward to seeing your new blanket!!!
I made a superfast crochet cowl, take a look! :)
Enjoy your day!

Hi Lucy,

Just to say that I have not just shelved the Watermelon idea 😀 We are caring for it in our polytunnel and will deliver it as and when we get to Saltaire.
I have Multiple Sclerosis and the Summer has not been such a good one for me.

Loving the delights of your posts, as always, and our granddaughter reaches for our iPad as soon as she arrives here to check out 'Your lovely friend at ATTIC24'! Her favourite description of you and your posts, ideas and photos is 'She/that/they are grand!' Children are fabulous aren't they?
She is learning to crochet and is progressing at a far faster rate than I am ... My hands have reduced sensation due to my MS and don't move as fast as or where I want them to. Extremely frustrating!

I'll message you when we are coming up ... if we can manage it, we would love to have a break in the area, so will see how I am.

Thanks for the delights of all you do,

Big love

sorting out my late mothers belongings. She was always trying out new crafts but really expert at knitting and sewing - even made my dads jackets! I have found several pieces of embroidery that I had not seen before besides all the framed ones. It is so good to be able to celebrate - albeit very quietly - her creativity, in the midst of the sadness.
So thank you Lucy for reminding me to look at the sunshine, to enjoy my own making and all the pleasures of family and friends. and Facebook too!!


Having nice soap is a such a simple luxury.


I'm going to buy myself some new soap too, today. Funny how this little things can make us happy! :)

Sarah Longfoot

No more hanging out the washing, me thinks. The knit and natter is brillant, they taught my kids finger knitting and my youngest sewing. It's such a joy to be going, even though with kids around don't get much done. It's such a joy reading the attic 24.


Gorgeous and colourful as always. Love the Yarndale hookey Xx Joy X


Love the photos from the attic.


A gorgeous happy and colourful post Lucy, thank you for sharing.

This how summer holidays should be 😊 your friday yarn and coffee meetings look great, i am slightly jealous!
You blankets fit really nicely into your house! Love what the kids did with them. I will take my rainbow blanket to work with me today... the building is freezi g cold.

Tale care Anne


Rainbow! I haven't seen one in so long. Those stormy skies look eerily gorgeous, though. I'm kind of enjoying the chilly summer myself! :)

Jo Navin

Oh and I forgot to say thank you for sharing your beautiful photos of the sky over Skipton, especially the rainbow! I'm a keen cloud watcher ! Jo xxx

Can't wait for your Ripple blanket ta dah! Feeling v lucky to have seen it in real life - so gorgeous. Your knit and natter sounds such fun :-) The Yarndale banner is fab and I'm looking forward to seeing it in situ in lovely Skipton. By the way I was happy to hear that you're leaving your garden wall "au natural" and growing some pretty plants to climb up it :-) Love Jo xxx


Thank you for sharing your lovely new things with us :) it always feels like such a treat to join in with the little things that make you happy. Your blog and your beautiful home bring me a lot of joy and inspiration, thank you Lucy xx
