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.

I think it is energising sometimes to just take in what is around us and be grateful x great post as always x


I can't help looking you up to see what you have posted... So much to try! Truly are a talented lady. I like how you present your ideas just like a MIXTURE OF TEXTILES! I made the Lemon Drizzle cake/bread for Father's Day and the hubby loved it and so did I. Blessings come in BiG and Small and I give thanks everyday for each new day. Have a great week....


Lucy, you have this talent of combining colors, words, pictures, feelings together in a way that touches my heart and puts a wide smile on my face. Thank you :)


You have a gift of making me too feel blessed when I read your posts - lovely thanks Lucy xx


Slice of that cake left for me? Don't mind if it doesn't have a butterfly on!

Happy Midsummer Day to you and your family as well. The butterfly cake looks divine. I can just taste the strawberry or raspberry jam with creme oozing out of the center. Hmmmm my mouth is just watering. What a lovely day for an alfresco lunch by the water. Lots of hooking love to you Luce! I can't wait to hear from you again. xxxxxxxxxxx

Robin in the state of Virginia in the USA. Have a great day. Extra snuggles to the little ones.


Lovely post Lucy! I try to make a seasonal cake for each Solstice and Equinox, it makes those days a bit more special I think. Blessed be :)

Wonderful... Love it! Might just do the same :0) x Sarah


What a lovely idea Lucy, the cake looks delicious. I found your comments so uplifting - thanks for sharing and Happy Solstice to you and your family.


What a lovely blog and the pictures were good as well.


Happy Midsummer, Lucy! Those butterflies are beautiful-did you feel bad eating them?!

Thanks Lucy! I see yours was great. Ours too. We also had cake, almond bunt cake.Hope the week ahead is good!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


I look forward to the winter solstice (here in Kangaroo land ) as it means the days start creeping towards being longer and the march towards spring has begun. Thanks for your delicious cake and meadow pics!


yes, solstice today, or rather yesterday, just noticed it's passed midnight, but Midsummer's Day is actually the 24th!!!

You had made wonderfull programmes..and nature....


Oh, I forgot today was Summer Solstice - I can't believe it's already the longest day of the year! Love the cake - what a lovely day to celebrate with a picnic.

What a perfect day! And a gorgeous cake! We're celebrating Father's Day here too.. I made Dayle an egg salad sandwich with our own hen's eggs. We're taking him out to Chinese dinner this evening, too. Fun times! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

I loved the way you kept referring to 'today' Lucy... that is the way to live 'in the now'! Such a rich experience of enjoyment in every little thing and that's how we get to feel rich and blessed. Excuse the pun but I am now hooked on crochet! Thank you for inspiring me. xx


Hi Lucy,
Blessed to be recovering from serious illness and able to contemplate making a crocheted blanket for my great niece. She requested sunset colors. No blue. No green. And the colors of her beloved late cat running through. So they are orange, white and a dark rust. Thought I might do a ripple and put "kitty" in in the fibonacci sequence. Considering I was too ill to even remember how to double crochet, figuring that out is truly a real blessing.
Thank you for your lovely, colorful blog. A blessing to many.
:) m & jb (the cat)

What a yummy-looking cake! What kind is it?

Elaine Hocking

I feel blessed to have my son home from overseas for a little while. Blessed to see my two gorgeous grandsons and their mum and dad pop down to see us.
So have all my family with me to make a lovely Father's Day for hubby and son-in-law. All homeward bound tomorrow.sigh!


Glad you celebrated the longest day in the countryside, love the idea of a solstice cake :) I celebrated with buttterflies too, making a midsummer butterfly decoration.

A beautiful planet indeed. I love the idea of a solstice cake. Glad you had such a wonderful day. How lovely the countryside is at this time of year. Breathtaking. CJ xx
