About Me

  • Hello! 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

Your cushion is so very, very yummy (looking at it motivates me to finish the ones I started...) -- Your blog has been such a sweet discovery!

(Thanks for the blog-linking!)


Wow love the cushion. I sooooo wish that i could crochet x


it's just lovely Lucy, and I hope that resting your poor head on it will make it better very soon. xxxxx



I love your cushion it's gorgous. I've mastered the crocheting of flowers and find it so soothing to do. I would love to follow a granny square pattern and have a go myself but if not maybe you'll get your etsy shop up and running and perhaps put some chrocheted things in it?? In the meantime I really must get the penny rug done so that I can move onto the other things I want to do .... so many ideas so little time. Hope you are feeling back to normal soon.



please, allow me to call u "sifu" .....

all gorgeous masterpiece, im speechless day by day... "wow wow wOWW WAHHHHHHHHHH so beautiful"

thanks for bringing great ideas and colors to our daily life, i think all of us here appreciate it very very much. i will workhard to follow ur crochet masterpiece, all those tutorials, hopefully one day i will be able to show u the results. u deserves all the credits.
take care


Absolutely beautiful, makes your living room look very inviting. Hope you feel better soon! ... :0)


Oh, how lovely! I've just finished a ripple blanket yesterday; it went on our bed last night, as we really needed an extra layer, but thats just an excuse! I would have had to have it there anyway. I tried your hexagons a few weeks ago but had trouble on the second round (I'm a bit dense sometimes). I mulled it over and thought; "I'll just do a two treble cluster and see if it works" and it did! I think that's the UK term for "bobble". So now there's a hexagon blanket on the go! It's a really fun pattern, enough variety to keep you interested but repetitive enough for watching tv at the same time, once you get going. Thanks for more lovely inspiration today.


Love how that turned out! I think I'm going to stop the project I'm working on just to get started on a bunch of squares or even hexagons for a blanket. Thanks for "twisting" my arm to get started on it. :)

De-lurking here to say "Fabulous job all the way around!" Love your blog, love your crochet, love your photos, love your recipes, LOVE YOU! I've started at the beginning and am now in mid-August, what will I do when I get caught up with myself? Thank you so much for the inspiration, one of these days I'll set up a flickr account to show you the things you've inspired me to hook in the last 2 weeks since I discovered Attic24, now my favorite place on the web :-)


I loved seeing the step by step way you created your wonderful cushion and the final pictures are just so stunning-it worked out beautifully and looks lovely in your warm cosy home. No open fire here in Oz-we are enjoying our summer so the crochet hook is away at the moment but you have inspired me to get going again even though it id hot here. You have a special blog.


Lucy, espero puedas traducir, no sé inglés pero igual quería dejarte algunas palabras de felicitaciones en tu blog. Lo miro todo los días, tus trabajos son espectaculares, una fuente de inspiración. Combinás muy bien los colores, creo que eso es el secreto. Se nota que le ponés mucho amor a todo lo que hacés. El almohadón te quedó precioso, tal vez algún día te copie la idea. Un gran abrazo desde Argentina. Andrea.


I LOVE this cushion! Your blog is such an inspiration and the colors you use just lift my spirits!


What a beautiful cushion. Gee, I wish I could crochet. I've had three master crocheters try to teach me, but it just won't stick in my brain. sigh. Oh well, I have enough hobbies anyway.

Check out my Pay if Forward giveaway!

I am absolutely in love with that cushion - in fact, I am in love with every single item that you crochet. You really are a crochet goddess - your choice of colours is just so beautiful. I only found your blog a couple of months ago and enjoy it thoroughly. Thanks so much for sharing.


Lucy your cushion is beautiful love your choice of colour.


They look just Fabulous!!!!! Love the colours and the one with the flowers is yummie!


Lucy, I came across your blog recently and it "blew my mind". I love your explosion of colours and your works are masterpieces. I enjoyed stolling down with you on your walk and was thoroughly entertained by your "twist of phrase". Thank you ...I will be visiting again. Hope you are feeling much better.

Hi, I popped over from Tracy's after seeing the lovely houses she won in your giveaway, and I am stunned by the gorgeousness of your blog!

You make me want to pick up a hook and start crocheting immediately - although I won't do that as sadly I only have heaps of acrylic to hand, but I see a trip to Hobbycraft coming on!

Thank you for brightening this cold cold morning with such warm and colourful photos - your cushion is delicious!!


ps. If you notice your stats going up, that'll be me scrolling through your archives and being late for work ....


Lucy you really do have a way with colour and your crocheting is fantastic. I love them.


I just found your blog via '1/4 of an Inch', and I'm so glad I did! I love your colourful granny's flower patch cushion.


Lovely, the flowers are beautiful against the muted greens. Very pretty.
Happy New Year.


I am so inspired by your crochet that I have put a post on my blog linking to your blog, hope this is okay with you, I have also added you to my blog roll.
best wishes
