Hello there Lucy ☺️

I have been quietly reading your blog since I re-started my love affair with crochet thanks to a dear friend who helped me to remember some key crochet stitches. Once I remembered them and got a flow going, there was no stopping me! 😄

I recently bought the Jolly Chunky bag pack from Chris at Country Crafts, and am absolutely in love with the colours! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful talent and your amazing eye for colour. ☺️

I have also managed to compete a double bed sized blanket in creams, pinks and lavenders for my Mum for her Christmas present, and she absolutely loved it! 😄👍💕

Finally, you are a lady after my own heart, I also have a very deep Pagan belief, have had since I was 14, I also prefer Yule to Christmas, and I just wanted to share this with you ☺️

I wish you health and happiness for the New Year, and my heart goes out to you with regards to your Mum; I do so wish you all well and much blessings to you and your family x x x x


First I wish you and your family a blessed New Year. I pray that your mother will be well. I thank you for the lovely pictures of your walk. I wish I had such a lovely place to walk. Now as for lunch or dinner? My children and I have a running argument. I call the noon day meal dinner and the night time meal supper, whereas they call the noon meal lunch and the night meal dinner. I am sure it's the same argument all around the world between young folks and old folks. I look forward to reading your blog because it makes me feel so happy.


Wishing you all the best for 2015, Lucy. Thank you for sharing this post. xxx


Merry Christmas Lucy! It sounds like you had a lovely, cosy day with your family. Perfect. I wish things weren't so difficult with and for your mum, but all the best for you and yours in the New Year.

P.S. I may make some festive bunting myself this year!


What a lovely post, it sounds as if you had a very nice Christmas day. I truly hope for the best for you and your family as well as your mother in the new year.
I look forward to reading about your family and your creations so much. Thank you for sharing.

I think I prefer Yule as well, but it still sounds like you had a wonderful time on the big day. A Christmas walk is a very good thing isn't it. We had those crackers with wind-up toys as well one year, I remember them being very popular. I'm sorry things were hard down in Dorset Lucy, it's especially hard at this time of year no doubt. I do hope you enjoy the rest of the festive season. CJ xx


Lucy, as my Granddad used to say on Winter Solstice, "It now gets a cockerel stride lighter each day, " I think that the old sayings are the best. Jo

Love your posts
Our Christmas was very different this year
Our precious baby now 28 and his beautiful wife have a little baby princess of their very own. Oh yes!!! I'm a grannie aka mama marmalade. I enjoy making and was making marmalade the day she was born. She is the proud owner of many a hooked hat, blanket, dolly cover. The latest delivered today
My mum has been poorly and I understand how you feel and mine only lives a Mile away.
Enjoy your family Lucy and creating a snuggley family home.
My son wants his daughter to have the type of child hood he had, what better compliment can any mum get
Happy 2015 to you all

It looks like you all had a lovely time. Quite similar to our Christmas actually, except that we started the day at 8 am only. The children found their stockings earlier and were entertained by the fillings and forgot to wake us up. You are so right, there is not always need for change, same old is comforting in so many ways. We had a couple of new decorations for our tree this year(you would be delighted by all the colour on our tree), one pink flamingo and a multi-coloured bird. Have a wonderful weekend. Christina x
P.S. I hope you mum is getting better soon. Wishing you strength to cope with the anxiety your mum's illness is causing.

I do wish your Mum health and happiness for 2015 and can understand the anxiety that you are going through being so far from her. Thank you for sharing your Christmas with us, it looks to be a perfectly informal affair that is what Christmas memories are made of. I looked at my tree and decorations this year and even 20 odd years on, they still bring us so much happiness with different stories being told as each one goes on the tree. Have a wonderful and loving 2015 xx

A lovely, cosy, wintry post :) I wish your mum well, and am glad that you all had a good Christmas, Lucy. We all had a quiet one here, just the five of us. You did well to go for a morning walk. With our late-sleeping teenagers it's hard to get everyone up at the same time, even when there are stockings and presents to open! Your home looks very festive and homely and I shall look forward to your winter wreath. Have a lovely break :)

Merry Christmas Lucy, lovely to read about your Christmas. We had racing reindeer and one of them lost a leg. Our 5 year grandson, Jack, was helpless with chuckles when the poor thing did a wobbly, one legged constant twirl.

Thanking you for all your inspirations and wishing you a happy, healthy and contented 2015 xx

Happy Christmas Luce.
I got crochet books for Xmas!!! ;-)
Love from your old friend Katie B x x


Merry Christmas, Lucy. Sounds like you had a lovely family Christmas in the attic. Thank you so much for sharing your world online, you continue to inspire me. Love the little houses bag you had on the train.

Best wishes for 2015 x

Merry Christmas from Abu Dhabi. I love reading your blogs and I just wish I could crochet. I 've tried a couple of times to no avail. :(
Have a lovely New Year and I hope 2015 is kind to you and your family. I move back home to Perth in Scotland next year and can't wait to enjoy Christmas and New year properly... The first in a few years. It s too hot and sunny here to get in to the spirit of it all.
Keep the blog going, I love it and if you could please recommend a beginner's, beginner's method to crochet I would really appreciate your help. :)

Good to hear from you and I am sure your mum was thankful for the visit...illness and distance are distressing, keep strong, life is what it is....take care and best wishes for a new year full of new hope xxx


Happy Christmas to the Attic24 family!


Looks like a good way to enjoy Christmas to me, it was crazy hectic here but fun with 8 people and 5 pets, two of them ours and three seasonal visitors. Looking forward to seeing you're winter wreath, I change my up a bit this year for the Soltice, adding in some new element, good wishes for the rest of the holidays to you and you're family

Continuing happy Christmas to you, Lucy.

Christmas Day spent with adult friends so quiet. Boxing Day was our family gathering - hosted by granddaughter - everyone contributed food and/or drink, help yourself and make your own tea/coffee Which meant hostess and host joined in the fun. Exchanged presents and I have the lovely job of taking their presents to the ones who didn't make it!
Quiet? No, two new babies joining the other five great grandchildren, five granddaughters and partners, three daughters, two son in laws and myself. Lots of excitement, of fun and laughter and lots and lots of love.
Today spent with daughter and soninlaw who live up north (further than yourself Lucy). I feel so blessed and especially so after the past three difficult years.
I wish you and your family peace, good health and lots of joyful times in 2015.


My family enjoyed snuggling up under my newly completed cosy blanket. I love it and so do they. Thank you so much for sharing it x x x

Robin Summers

Your mum is always in my prayers. I hope she starts to feel better soon.


G o R g E o U s Xx lots of love Joy Xx


It sounds like you had a wonderful family Christmas, just how it should be. We managed to get out for a walk yesterday, just perfect in the crisp weather we had. That was before the snow fall last night. Wishing you all the very best for 2015.


Sounds like a lovely Christmas was had in the Attic :0) xx
