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

Go girl! Monthly mosaics a lovely idea - Etsy shop! Fantastic! House renovations...eughh! But great when they're done! Hurrah! Thoroughly enjoyed the pictures - will be back to look again as there's too much to take in at one gulp! t.xx


A wonderful review of 2008 - I'm a relatively new reader of the blog so it was lovely to see all of those photos. Wishing you a happy, healthy and enjoyable 2009!


WOW,gorgeous photos,so bright and colourful.Can't wait to see your Etsy shop!

The photos are joyous and wonderful! Great idea! Thanks for sharing!


Really enjoyed the mosaics. Great idea to do one every month.


Lucy, I am feeling so lucky to have found your blog in early December. You have inspired me so much with all your vivid colors, I love it. When I saw your hexagon blanket I thought it looked like a field of flowers and knew I NEEDED to make one. Thank you for getting me back into crocheting. It's been awhile that I have felt inspired to make anything. I have been crocheting since I was 10 (I'm 50 now) I started my Hexagon love on 15 Dec and only have 40 more hexagons to go! (out of 154) I am using only scrap yarn that I have had lying around forever, goodness that's a lot of scrap yarn :^) and it looks just like that field of flowers! So very colorful. I would also like to attend your Knit and Natter sessions. Do you think a commute from Erie, Pennsylvania is too far? No, I don't think so!


Hello Luce,
These are fab-u-lous!!! I always enjoys these "montages" on people's blogs and have wanted to create my own but I just haven't worked out how you do it yet, (so untechnical, that's me,) and now I can enjoy yours instead, wonderful. I played "which is my fave month" game and started with July, then it became September and then I couldn't believe you made December so colourful, and not even in a predictable red and green xmassy sort of way.
Loving it!!! Thanks, thanks, thanks.

I really enjoyed finding your bright and wonderfully entertaining blog in 2008, I do hope to hear lots from you in this new year and beyond.


lovely, lovely, lovely x
my fave has to be the hand holding in September.... family love and crochet - perfect :)
looking forward to 2009 at the attic!

lovely! thank you for sharing those with us, the way you have put them together and the ones you have chosen is further proof of how good an eye you have for things. I think a monthly mosaic is a great idea!


Happy New Year to you, and many thanks for putting so much beautiful color into our lives!

Your photography is so strong. I truly think that you should be publishing a calendar/diary for 2010. Get going on that project right now, please! I think that many other folks would so love to go through a year, month by month, guided by the enthusiasm that shines from your pictures.

Cheers! xo


I love your photos, can I ask how do you make a mosaic like that? is it in a photo program? I want to learn how to do this but I haven't been able to figure out how.
Also your crochet projects are wonderful. Is there a certain brand of yarn that you use? I find that the yarn at michaels/joanns just doesn't seem as bright and colorful, and soft like the stuff that I see online.

so much beauty. All the images are just wonderful. I love too how although the bright cheerfulness runs through them all, the colours change with the months and seasons. What a wonderful way to look back over the year.

Wishing you a very bright and colourfilled 2009, with many more happy memories to be made and enjoyed. These are so beautiful I know I'll be back again and again to savour and soak them up - perfect for a pick-me-up.

PS I'd second the calendar idea - I'd definitely get one that's for sure! xx


I think YOU just might have been the ray of sunshine.


wonderful cheery photos as always Lucy and the mosaics are a great way of displaying them. Looking forward to seeing all your new projects xx Love Gem


What beautiful pictures - such beautiful color! I cannot wait to see what you inspire us with in the new year. I agree with Patricia - the yarns we buy at Michaels/Joanns just do not compare with your yarns. Is there a brand you favor or a mail order source that you have found reliable?


What a lovely collection of photos, so bright, colourful and ... so you! I love the way you sum up each month with these lovely mosaics. And I for one will be eager to check the new monthly photo mosaics that will appear at the end of each month, such a lovely idea.


I only found your blog recently but you have inspired me to start taking some time to myself and knit again (three boys, puppy, part-time teacher takes up mostly all my time). Love the photos, now just need to get hold of brighter wool to finish my yoga blanket there are only so many chilled colours I can go with!
Keep going with the inspiration it's worked on me.


thankyou, that was so lovely, colourful and cosy, I would love to have a calender that looked like that, it would beat any that I have seen, you must get your work published, you have such a talent Lucy.
look forward to seeing what you create this year.


I agree with Mandy above. It would look great as a calender. I am looking forward to following the year with you Lucy. I think you have the best blog on the block!
