Happy blogiversary, I have to say thank you for creating and continuing to write on your blog. It's such a delight to read and look at your photos. Sometimes when life is not going right it's such a joy to look at your blog and read what your writing, it's like having a lovely friend by your side. I did meet you at Yarndale last year and you are so lovely I could imagine sitting with a cup of coffee with you and having a lovely chat. So thank you and I look forward to lots more lovely colour and writing from you. xxxx


Congratulations on your anniversary. I love reading your blog. You keep me inspired. Whenever I don't know what to crochet, I always look at your blog. Thank you for sharing. x Wendy


Congratulations Lucy! I love your blog and thank you so much for all the inspiration, all the smiles, all the beautiful photos and all the gorgeous color you have given us. Here's to a bright and creative blogging future!

From Canada with admiration for writing such an inspiring blog. You make me feel happy as I look at your photographs of walks with your husband and children! I love how you appreciate the world around you and how you incorporate that love in your crocheting. I've made one of your granny afghans, a flower wreath and some triangle bunting coffee mats. Since I also quilt, rug hook as well, I'm not crocheting all the time. But, I read your news every week and always feel the connection between our worlds. Take care !😄


Congratulations and thank you! You and your blog have brightened many a day and given me a love for crochet. You have inspired me and taught me! Please know how much your readers appreciate you and your lovely blog. Blessings to you and yours! Sue.


I should just write 'Ditto' and be done because all of these comments echo what I think. I'm very grateful that I found your blog--I no longer remember how--and I so enjoy reading about your life and your work. I love how color is so important to you.
Best wishes on many, many more years of blogging!

Congratulations on your Blogiversary Lucy, those beautiful flowers are a wonderful way to celebrate 9 years of blogging! I think I first picked up your blog from Country Living Magazine when Little Man was a baby!

Happy Blogiversary!!! I have been enjoying your lovely and inspirational blog for 5 years now, you have taught me so much for which I am truly thankful. I hadn't been crocheting very long when I found the Attic & now I always have a blanket on my hooks; one of my boys requested a neat ripple of his own to take away when he started uni, my daughter has a version of your Big Blanket that went off to uni with her, and my grandsons had baby blankets waiting for them when they arrived - all thanks to your awesome detailed tutorials which must take so much time and effort on your part but are VERY much appreciated by those of us who don't have anyone nearby who can show us how to crochet. So thank you very much for sharing your world so freely with us, and here's to the next nine years!! :-) Helen

In my opinion, yours is the best crochet blog on the net :) keep up the good (and hard) work!


I of course can not speak for anyone but myself; but Its is I who must thank you!!!!! Without Your blog I never would have advanced as quickly as I have from bumbling novice to what I now consider and advanced beginner or even perhaps and intermediate level crocheter! You blog also bring such beauty and calm to my Life... your photos of walks along the canal as the little peeps head off to school, the amazing views of boats flowers and Light along the canal totally thrill me.... I sweat i can often smell the sea when Im totally immersed in an entry from Dorset... its all so compelling and spirit filling!!! SO thank You Lucy from the bottom of my heart.... Oh yes - and those flowers..... they too speak so deeply to my heart and soul!!


Congrats! That's quite an achievement and what a wonderful online home you've created!!

Happy Anniversary! Here's to the next nine years.


Congratulations on 9 years. Thanks for all the beautiful photos of flowers, the countryside, and the crochet in your home. All are so lovely and give a feeling of peace and pure loveliness. I always feel better after reading your blog.


Those ranunculus I clicked through to see are fantastic! I want to plant some immediately... but will have to wait until fall.
I enjoy your blog and read every post. I have bought two of your blanket kits and enjoyed crocheting on them. I also love that you share your thought processes in choosing colors and designs.
Happy Blogiversary!
