Hello Lucy,
So sorry to hear you have been having a difficult time and do hope things are steadily improving. It is so important that we are kind to ourselves so take care of you.
Your blog is wonderful and I am always drawn to your uplifting colour choices.
It is particularly lovely to work with cheerful-looking yarns when the days are short and gray.
Even though the season is now past, I am going try making some of those adorable mini stars which I can see turning up just about everywhere next year - tree, dinner table, gifts, garland, hair adornment and more.
Thank you for your continuing inspiration and expertise and a very Happy New Year.

Happy new year my friend! Blessings to you and your family.


Happy new year dear Lucy, I enjoy reading your blog for quiet a few years now and I am so thankful for all the creative inspiration and the wonderful pictures. All the best

Lucy,a happy new year and thanks for your blogs.


All good thoughts to you and yours. May 2020 bring contentment, health and happy adventures. Thanks for your kindness in sharing your life and makes with everyone. You give joy to so many - may it be returned tenfold.


Happy New Year. Really missing your lovely posts about my home county as I live in exile in Nottinghamshire. Hope you and your family are all well and had a good Christmas. Hope to be reading your blog again soon.

Totally agree with Lucy from Kent....if you can't say something nice then don't comment! There always seems to be one in the crowd that wants to be nasty or negative!
2019 has been a tough year for a lot of people from what I've seen. It's even harder to deal with the hard stuff when you're in the public eye. I hope you're feeling more on top of things now Lucy and I hope you had a lovely Christmas with your family. Happy New Year to you. Thank you for all that you share for FREE on your blog...you are such an inspiration to so many people.
Wishing you everything bright and beautiful in 2020
Hugs from The Land Downunder xx

Thanks for all your lovely musings and blogs. Thanks for sharing and thanks for being you. You are quiet amazing my dear.
Cheers to a lovely 2020.

Dear Lucy I so hope you had a peaceful Christmas with your family. Take time for you in the new year, it seems you are pulled every which way with all you do, be sure that you are a wonderful inspiration to all of us who read your blog, and for one, I just love to hear about your day to day 'doings', and feel I know you like a friend, of course I love your patterns too, such inspiration, but just be peaceful and look after yourself best wishes Daphne x


Wish you and your family all the best!

Kristine S

Hope your Christmas day & after has been quietly special... enjoy the end of 2019 and the beginning of a new year, still to be imagined, in 2020...
Hope everyone is being kind to you - including yourself - and I (and our small number of devotees from France) hope and pray all is good. See you next year! xxXxx


So sorry to hear that things have been tough for you. I hope you find some joy and comfort knowing how much you have inspired so many of us with your colours and patterns -my Mum, my sister and I all have you to thanks for our new love of crochet. Stay warm, keep smiling and enjoy your family time xx

Annette Ostrowska

Dear Lucy I hope you are feeling better soon and have managed to enjoy your Christmas so far. Thank you so much for your beautiful patterns, I too am inspired by your wonderful blog and inspirational photos. Very much looking forward to seeing the CAL Dahlia blanket.

Mary Strickland

You are on my heart this evening, and I'm praying for you to have a gentle and peaceful new year. Thank you for the joy and light you bring to so many people throughout the entire world. I love how you share your talent and creativity in such a delightful way.


Lucy, 2019 has been a terrible year for us but we are looking forward to Peace, Joy and Happiness in 2020. We wish this for you and your family. Merry Christmas and Best Wishes in 2020.


Dear Lucy, I’ve followed you for years now. You inspired me to return to crochet. I’ve made so many of your patterns including a blanket. I return to your technical guidance on a regular basis. I had a great time at Yarndale and got to meet you!
I also enjoy the day-to-day accounts of your life and lovely photos.
Have a great family time and know how much you mean to people all over the world. But always let this be something that is good for YOU. Maybe pull back if you need to? I‘m sure most of us enjoy what there is when there is. We’re not greedy! United in craft, Pip xx

Lucy - Kent, England

Merry Christmas and a 2020 filled with love, joy, peace, strength, understanding, compassion and gorgeous colours
to Lucy and family.
Also to everyone who follows Lucy at Attic 24.

Perhaps though "San" has been reading the wrong posts? I'm not aware of Lucy ever trying to "sell us anything".
I follow the old adage "if you've nothing nice to say, then say nothing at all."

Irene Arnold

Merry Christmas Lucy, and thank you. I wish the same wonderful Yuletide for you and your family. I hope you too are surrounded by love, light, sparkle and joy.
Take it easy, enjoy this time and look after you and your family first ... it is not easy for someone as giving as you to put yourself first, but you must listen to your body and put your own physical, mental and emotional well-being first. So stay warm, cosy and enjoy! Sending warm hugs and love 💕


Hope you had a lovely Christmas & are taking time for the untangling process. I've been much the same of late, but we all get there at some point. Ooh, my wool arrived for the dahlia rug, a present from lovely DD, so that's been exciting & I must send you an email in the new year as to something I have planned whilst doing the rug. Take care, destress & huggles from down under.


Merry Christmas, Lucy! Wishing you peace and comfort. Take care! We’re grateful for your blogging - don’t ever feel bad about needing to step back and care of yourself.

Eleanor Lahn

Happy Holidays Lucy, thanks for bringing us so many heartwarming colors, clever crochet projects, luminous photos, chatty descriptions of your life and beautiful surroundings, and joyous inspiration.
