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

Lucy, your blanket is stunning. I was just about to buy a pack from Wool Warehouse, but am shocked as I found out they sell buttons made from real buffalo horn. I’m gobsmacked. They’ve replied to my enquiry and advised it is genuine buffalo horn, for which the animal would have to be killed to source, like ivory. Are you aware?

Lucy, you bring light into so many people's lives. For that we are grateful.
With love and thanks Judith 🌈


Maybe Jane and Mary can bow out now and leave the rest of us to enjoy....


I loved the photos of countryside at the beginning of your post. Such absolutely lush colours and just amazing scenes. It made me want to just step into the photos and enjoy the scenery.
I’m so sorry to read about your dad. My mother in law had a lot of issues before she died.
My dad died first and then my mum.
For me walking is such a healing time.


Just a ciao, hoping that is all good with you all,


Yes, I agree. Lucy as every right to do what she wants. BUT it would be nice if she just popped in to say that she is ok, it would take but a second! People worry about her. She has many many genuine followers who actually deserve at least that. Love & Blessings.


Hi Lucy,
Just sending along greetings, ♥, and prayers a plenty for you and yours! You have been on my mind lately. Hoping and praying all is well in your world.

Hi Lucy
Like many of the comments ..I have been following you for years and love the photos…makes me feel like I am at home as from Yorkshire but live in the South.
Your post about your dad touches me as i too am in the same situation with my dad…now very frail which I don’t mind but the forgetfulness and anger has made the real him invisible. My dear dad, I was such a daddy’s girl, has gone. I feel for you and will pray for you as I do for myself to cope and have the patience strength and love in my heart for him.
Post when you can …you have helped me crochet and go on crocheting more than you will ever know and your photos and colour scheme are a source of joy and inspiration.

Missing your posts recently Lucy, sending love and light, take your time and I hope to see more from you when you are able. Take care x


I have loved all your posts and blanket patterns. Life gets boggy definitely. Hold on and keep taking one day at a time. You are loved the world over. We will wait on you so no worries on time frame.


I truly enjoy your blog and hope that your absence is not a sign of serious life problems. Remember you have lots of followers who support you! Hang in there!

Hi Lucy, I have followed your blog since the kiddies were so little, to think Little Lady is already 18, that also means that 1 boy is into the 20's and the youngest has to be 14 or 15 where has the time gone. I don't check as often as I used to (busy life) but when I do I so enjoy reading about your love of family, crocheting, and the countryside you live in. Thank you for blogging . Barb in Canada


Val, I can't agree with you more.

Warm greetings,


Attic24 is Lucy's blog/website. The fact that she shares so much with us all is wonderful, and I hope that we will see her very soon, when she's ready.
I'll repeat – it is Lucy's blog/website – and if Lucy feels like posting in a week, a month, or a year – that is entirely Lucy's decision. Most of us love reading about Lucy's life and her crocheting, and we all have our ups and downs as Kate has just posted, and I agree with you, Kate.
I'm not quite sure why Jane and Mary feel they can determine that the blog 'has run its course' – it is not their decision to make. If they choose not to read it any more – more fool them, but the majority of us understand that having teenagers in the family and elderly parents, life can get in the way and be challenging at times. Patience is a virtue.
A quote from Dolly Parton:
“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you have to put up with the rain.”


Dear Lucy,
I don't agree with Jane or Mary...
I will continue looking in on your wonderful blog for endless creative inspiration and hoping that what ever is happening there, that you're all supporting each other. Your honesty has been so valuable over these years and I am grateful to read of others' ups and downs as that is how life goes on. Take care.

I agree with Jane, let it go now.


I thought no you need to bow out of postings now. You clearly are not into it and it's run its course!

Jay Crafter

Just to let you know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Live can be tough sometimes. I am sure I am not alone in sending you love and support and warmest wishes. Jay Crafter


Missing you, hope all is OK.xx


Hello Lucy,

In March this year, I lost my father at the age of 93. I notice that in my thoughts he is still alive and I’m grateful for that.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and beautiful pictures, one with my favourite buttercups.

Sending you warm greetings from the Vulkan Eifel,


Miss your wonderful posts. Just sending good thoughts & energy your way. Hope all is well with you and the family.

Hi Lucy,
It's time to pick a new blanket pattern and yarn pack. I am having trouble viewing pictures on some of the patterns. Some have pictures some have picture markers. When I click on a picture marker I get a big black screen.
Is this on your end or mine? Weird that I can see some pattern pictures and not others!

Cheers! Hope your day is glorious❤️


I loved seeing the differentiation Calculus of your daughter's logs and exponentials ...is she going to do maths at university....i did that 50 years ago . Good luck for her.


My condolences to you and your family. Losing a parent is never easy no matter how old you may be...Lovely post as usual, especially the picture with the ladybug.


I thought I was alone in feeling that time goes by faster and faster with each passing year. I looked in the calendar today and realised that June went in a blink of an eye, and my husband said that if it keeps on at this rate, it soon will be Christmas before we know it.

Losing loved ones leaves its marks. Sometimes memories bubble up that I thought I had put to rest. But I can look at them and say; "You are here, but you can manage on your own without me. You can not stop me from rejoicing in what I have today and I can be grateful that my life turned out quite well anyway".
Thank you for sharing your thoughts; your every day life and your wonderful crocheting.
Take care, Ida
