Unlike many British homes who had a magical fall of snow just after Christmas, the white stuff completely missed us in December. Not so this week - we have had flakes! Not a lot it has to be said, but... Continue reading

Hello! I thought it would be nice to share a colourful bit of crochet with you today, something bright and cheerful and a just a teensy bit unnecessary. I mean, I'm fairly sure there is no real pressing need for... Continue reading

I can't tell you how much pleasure it gives me putting these review posts together, there is a pleasing simplicity about gathering together a collection of fairly random images to celebrate the meaning of "home". If you've been a regular... Continue reading

92 This is the correct link for paper copy back issue x Sent from Windows Mail From:Typepad Sent:‎Friday‎, ‎2‎ ‎January‎ ‎2015 ‎11‎:‎13 To:Lucy Attic24 A new comment from “Pauline” was received on the post “Cowl-neck Poncho :: ta-dah!” of the blog “Attic24”. Comment: Can anyone help me get the pattern please? A friend went to UK and thought she had bought for me but was the wrong issue, I ordered it online and they sent issue 26 not 25 a cross about that so £15 later I still dont have the pattern. A photodo and emailed version would suit me fine and I can work from my iPad. Thank you everyone Commenter name: Pauline Commenter email: IP address: Authentication: None Enjoy!

It's rather odd, but here we are just five days away from Christmas and I find myself not doing anything remotely Christmassy. I don't know why, but I just can't seem to locate my festive mojo this year, it must... Continue reading
