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

Hi Lucy! I came to the conclusion that I had so much yarn left after crocheting so many blankets with Stylecraft yarn so I have made some kind of kimono/cardigan in all sorts of Attic24-inspired colors :) It's really cozy to have in front of the computer now when I work from home almost every day. But now I will abandon the crochet hook for a while and knit a sweater instead :) / XXX


Hello Lucy: Just want to say thank you for the blog postings this month. You are such an inspiration to me. I actually finished the cosy blanket and now working the Meadow Blanket and can't wait to see the new one. I actually didn't think I could do these blankets, but your lovely step by step photos have helped me enormously. Now I feel like I can do this! (with Lucy's help). so proud of myself. Thanks for posting all of the gorgeous photos, just love all of it! Hope you are doing well this week. Noelle


Thank you so much for your March daily blogs...it is so fun reading about where you live and your family life. I look forward to your next blanket adventure!!! My needlecraft group just loves the beautiful colours in the blankets. Be well and thanks for your generosity in sharing your talents. Stay safe and healthy!


Most mornings I write Morning Pages as a mind dump. I get up early,while the house is quiet, make a cup of tea, and sit drinking it while I scrawl mostly nonsense into a notebook. It is very much stream of conciousness, and might be about my work in the day ahead, something which is bothering me, or even along the lines of "I have no idea what to write" I don't usually read it back. The days I do it are always far more productive than those when I don't.


Thank you for your daily posts on your endeavours - they are always such a delight to read. How exciting to have a new blanket brewing! And so glad you got to see some new vistas even if it was a trip to the dentist. Hugs xx


Hi Lucy, A new blanket...how exciting! Rich in color by the glimpse of it. Hormones, aren't they fun!? Not! I can relate to that and the brain fog for sure. I too go on lots of walks, arthritic knees or not and will have surgery on the bad knee in May. Looking forward to eventually walking without pain...won't that be a hoot!
Take care, MO


Thanks as always, for sharing your thoughts & days with us! Enjoy your weekend!


I totally empathise, Lucy. I’m in the perimenopausal funtimes and my god, every month brings some new symptom that is tedious and challenging. Hormones are powerful and disruptive things! I find that on days where I just cannot motivate myself (and this is where I’m fortunate to be self-employed) I give into it. I always try but sometimes it’s best to relax a little. We all need a little recharge from time to time.

Looking forward to seeing your new project!

The fog is real, I've been in it for awhile now along with all the rest that goes with this hormonal time of life, mine has thrown in chronic migraines for an added jab. Here's to clearer days ahead! I have courgetti/zucchini just popping up in my garden, I look forward to having it fresh all summer long. Can't wait to see the latest blanket creation. I just posted my Easter wreath on IG that we made many years ago, it's still holding up well. Have a wonderful Easter! xxxxxxxxxxx

I just found you!💗


It has been an absolute joy to read your daily posts, they really do make my day.
I have started to enjoy living simply, being mindful and appreciating the little things and your blog posts ooze the things I love x
Wishing you all a very Happy Easter 🐰🐣


Loved reading your daily blog posts and seeing your daily walks through the village and countryside. I’ve only made small patterns on your blog, such as the woolly lamb, Easter chick, leaves and roses so far. Your lunch inspired me to finally use the zoodle maker today. Had a salad with zoodles, spinach, mushrooms and smoked turkey and honey mustard dressing, it was so good. Hope you have a lovely Easter holiday.


I enjoy your blog and hope for good things for you and your family always. Blessings to you and your family,
Hugs and love from California,

HI Lucy,
I've been enjoying your blog for years, thank you for being you!
Mind dumps are a way of life for me. I generally have several projects going on at work, plus day to day duties. About once a week I just start typing and end up with a page of phrases and short paragraphs, and many exclamation points, lol I use that as a guide for the next week or so...I find if very helpful.
Have a Happy Easter!

Teresa Kasner

I commend you for doing a daily blog post, I do 3 a week and that is plenty for me! I enjoyed seeing all your images and hearing your story. Now I'm curious what the next blanket will be!

I have loved reading your daily posts. It is always lovely to join you in snippets of your daily life. :)


Lovely finish to your daily posts over the last 2 weeks & I've been on catchup most of the time & put it down to having our Covid jabs, which I'm sure have made me feather-brained at the moment. Good to hear you may get out & about a little further afield. We've just finished our dental appointments, after they were postponed from last February(2020) & like you I'm definitely not a fan. Look forward to seeing what you do with the reds? Take care, stay safe & hugs from down under.


Well done, all those blogs are a huge accomplishment, Lucy. We females go with the tide our sister moon gives us. We breathe in and out with her and the sea surrounding us. So does our body. I am a follower of the path of yoga since my eight years. Meditation is not for the faint of heart. Remember that if you become quiet, your stream of thoughts becomes louder. It takes training to get the chatter of the ego to the background. It's the duty of the ego to chatter, so let it be, don't pay much attention to it. Writing every morning can become a task, just find a way that suits you to unload that brain. If it's that walking, so be it. Your walking can be your meditation. Focus on the walking, the observing. Not the naming, just the observer observing. One foot for another. Of you go. Thanks for that lovely vlogging <3


It's been a joy to keep up with you daily for the past couple of weeks! I'm extra-appreciative of my virtual visits to your corner of the world as we head into Month 13 of this business! Have a lovely weekend xxx


try magnesium for insomnia, honey can help, but we have bees so plenty of it, raw stuff !

ladies mantle tincture can help with those monthly things, but as I had a menopause at 40 its been years of bad nights, but especially when low on magnesium. I often get up and take a few tablets, the joys of being female and getting older !


Hi Lucy. It’s been a lovely gentle start to my day to read your blog. It’s so refreshing to connect with some else’s real unedited life. Thank you so much for your honesty and for your inspiration. You have given some excellent tips for day to day living as well as great yarn ideas. Have a great Easter. Ann

Hi Lucy have followed your cheery blog for a few years now. Sleeping badly is awful and really affects everything. My optician gave me a tip which I find really helps. Put about half a tsp. of turmeric powder in a mug of milk, heat in microwave for 1 minute, stir, heat again for 30 secs. Take out and stir in a tsp.of good quality honey. Drink and enjoy!! I find it wonderful to have just before bed. Even better get some `empty` tea-bags from dotboutique.co.uk who made biodegradable paper ones in Scotland. Using them stops the turmeric from going lumpy. They're also great for herb or loose tea. Thanks for your super encouraging blogs. Take care


A lovely end of March post, and I just spent ages looking at Rachel's blog as well, which is brilliant, I know I will enjoy following her along. Just surprised I haven't come across her before, she has been blogging since 2011 I think. I know what you mean about waking up with a brain full of things. It is really frustrating if I wake up a couple of hours early and my mind starts whizzing around thinking of all the things to do. I like Lisa's meditation tip, but I'm not sure I can empty my mind enough. I'm sure it would be good for me though. I hope you have a good Easter weekend. CJ xx


Thank you for your daily blogs, I've enjoyed them very much. Can't wait to see your new blanket design!

Lucy - thank you for your very enjoyable and colourful blog. Also I’d like to thank you for bringing the Craftpod items to our attention. I have a friend who recently broke her leg in three places and I wanted to send a gift to cheer her up, so I sent her the Spring Craftpod box and she is delighted with it. 😊
