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

This is my first comment on your blog as I have just spent the last 2 days reading it from the very beginning! I have just taken my first tentative steps into crochet and, in a roundabout way, that's how I found your blog. I'm from an area not too far from Skipton and have visited your lovely town quite a few times. I live near to Heysham, Arnside and Kirkby Lonsdale and was very excited to see them mentioned in the blog! There's so much in your blog that feels very personal to me and I will be reading you everyday from now on!
Thank you so much for writing it!
By the way, re your love of colour: check out this site www.chasjacobs.co.uk. This is full of lovely art work by an artist who paints scenes from my local area and reminds me of a post you wrote sometime ago about a lady artist you like who paints very vibrant,almost child- like pictures. Enjoy!


Love the chair Lucy, I think once you have worked your magic on it, it will be fabulous! - Sounds like you need to slow down a little, maybe after all the PPP's are done? - Enjoy your Mother's Day doing the things you love - Natalie x

The Antidote

Ooooh was hoping for a bit more hooky inspiration. Today is the day I learn to crochet!



Hello Lucy. Please, please, please do a ripple tutorial! I have searched the internet and found various sites but none of the finished results seem to look as nice as yours and many of them have holes! Your ripples seem to be the perfect width and height and tension. Loving your Lloyd Loom chair by the way. I've been collecting LL furniture for years and managed to find 2 bedside cupboards for £4 last year! If you look underneath you may even find the date it was made!


I've just found your blog too. Love your scenes of daily life. Reminds me of when I lived up North and would visit my friends in Bingley and Saltaire. Beautiful place.

And crochet. Wow you are so inspiring me to learn! I actually made a proper doily last night becauase of you. How about that then *she says in a Jimmy Saville accent*

See you tomorrow!


Lucy, I feel that your days certainly seem to have many more hours in them than mine. My "to do" list for today isnt even half done (at the moment Im researching house contents quotes online - alledgedly)and its now dinner time. Good luck with the baking, Ive a PTA meeting to attend - jacqui x


Lucy, you are an inspiration to me with all that you achieve in the day - but please don't burn yourself out!!! I love all your tutorials and seeing all the lovely WIP's and new projects but take care of YOU too!!! There you've been told! I sound like that bossy calender you have!!!


I just spent a few blissful minutes on your flickr page. Loveliness.

Hi Lucy,

always love your crochet, so colourful and comfy, I need to get some more practice in since my first attempt (ahem) but there is always 'something' to do!!

you must be looking forward to the weekend?

take care,

Nina x


hope u have a good rest this weekend, after all the PPPs etc. etc..., really doesnt like to hear u are sick next week. drink lots of water and take more fruits ok?
have a good rest.


Love the chair, Luce. The seat definitely needs your colourful touch. Look forward to seeing it all glammed up.

I just adore popping in here every morning - no matter how gray it might be outside, I can always count on brightness here. The chair will be splendent, of that there is no doubt. Have a lovely rest this weekend.


The colors you use are amazing. I wish I could combine color that freely. I second the request for a ripple tutorial, maybe when your life has calmed down a bit.



The chair is lovely Lucy. I love duck egg blue I find it such a peaceful colour. I hope you are making some extra buns for home consumption!

How fantastic - a brilliant way of connecting grannies. Lucy you are a crochetig whiz and I'm learning so much.


What can I say except thank you once again Lucy!

Sue Swinnerton

Hi Lucy
How I love reading your blog - it cheers me up every day after a hard day at work. I feel like I've made a new friend even though we've never met.

Where do you get your energy from ?? You amaze me



OHHHHH....very pretty indeed! Lovely flowers and lovely ripples. I like your chair too. There you go again sounding like Lotty Wilkins (I love that character so much)in 'The Enchanted April' when she sees things so clearly in her mind's eye that they actually happen. Did you see the movie yet, Lucy? Just think...the weekend is close at hand and you can get yourself some much deserved rest! I will stop by to visit tomorrow (where else would I be) to see who the lucky winner is! Meanwhile....have a cozy evening.

The Coffee Lady

it must be hard being you and being tired, and not being able to decide which beautiful cushion or throw to use for a nap...


am inspired by your blog to start learning to crochet and am hoping for some lessons soon as have tried via a book, but some one to one tuition much needed! i just love the flowers and especially want to make a ripple blanket!


Jill Downing

Every evening after a full day at work I look forward to reading your blog and wishing I had the time to do everything you do. Your enthusiasm has made me order a crochet book!! Your photographs enhance all your hard work,keep up the good work.


Beautiful summer garden squares. I love all of the bright colors. Wondering how you keep up with everything and still have time for these gorgeous blog posts :-)

Another happy, colourful post, Lucy. Makes my day a happy day.
Love the chair and it will look great with your colourful summer garden squares on it.
Hope you get some quiet time at the weekend, just for you!!
Will be back to see you tomorrow, to see who the very lucky winner is!!
