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

Thank you thank you thank you Lucy, for that ripple pattern! Can't wait to get stuck in! Looking forward to seeing your latest bag of yarn! And I think that flower looks lovely in the middle of the cushion.


am very excited about starting my own ripple although may have to wait till after easter holidays as i think i will be in full on mummy mode :-)
your list was funny as ive just come in from buying 3 magazines, some thrifted items as the CS was having a £1 for anything sale, and some flowers :-)
(best not mention the bar of green and blacks milk chocolate on offer for £1 as well in the newsagents LOL)
have a lovely weekend!

OOO The ripple I am so excited, am making DD a smaller version of the crochet bag at the moment , I want to give in to her for over easter.
Your Priorities sound just right to me, I need to get cracking with my bits and pieces too.
Have a lovely weekend.


Yes I have been shopping too - for eggs. The chocolate kind that I can took into when Lent is over, that is if any are left after the special people have been and gone!! Love all the stripeyness!! It is oh so catching!! I am also waiting for my magazines. Lent is so hard, especially when you work in a little corner shop full of chocolates and beautiful new magazines!!! Enjoy your weekend Lucy.


I still can't get excited about crochet, but geez do I love those socks they look so comfy, where are they from?


Thanks so much for the Ripple Tutorial. You make it look so easy. I can't wait to start on the Easter Weekend. Your new cushion should look great with the others you have made.


Can you come and clean/tidy up my place when you're finished? Yours looks so tidy and cosy, I could do with the 'Lucy touch'!Love the matching socks too - they complete the scene!

I think I might make the house look quite Eastery this weekend as Mr P and I will be away over the weekend at Stag/Hen weekends. But I'm planning an Easter Egg hunt on the Hen Weekend so they'll still be lots of chocolate!

Have a fun weekend - and enjoy the calm before the holiday storm today! x

Every post is wonderful, i would like to know how you make the ripple schema, why you don't make a tutorial? Thank you for you colour, your happiness and your fabulous crochet !!!
Have a nice week end


I love following your blog daily and it is eye candy with all the beautiful pictures and crochet projects!!! I knit the most but do know how to crochet some and can't wait to try the ripple pattern! Thank you for posting that. I love all the different colors you use in yarn. What brand do you use? I have a hard time finding such colorful yarns here in the US or I just don't know where to go to get them.


You too Lucy xx

What lovely crochet - love the circular piece on the table.


oh my, u have another bag of yarns!!! wow!! cant wait for monday.
perhaps u can try to make a big hexagon or octagon for the other side of the cushion cover, since the other 2 u already have jumper on it. bet u will love to twist and turn the cushion's front. sometimes u can have the best of both world, u know.
happy hooking.


Oh, yay! We have a small road trip today, and I was sooo hoping the ripple pattern would be up, so I can get started whilst sitting and sitting and sitting, for the next 2 days while my kiddoes do their thing with Legos. They play with their colors, I'll play with mine. Off to print the pattern!


Love the spotty 'feather duster' dont suppose you'd like come and use it at my house - I could bribe you with chocolate, coffee, chocolate oh and more chocolate!!! Pleeeezzzz???
Have just made some 'chocolate' hot cross buns so I'm off to have one while theyre still warm and before my BP eat them all.
Have a fabby weekend, cant wait to see your bag of goodies on Monday, YES! you are a teeze!!!

Hi Lucy, I really want to have a go at that ripple , it just looks wonderful. A bit busy with sewing at the minute please check out my blog there is a surprise for you over there.You are such a joy and it is a real pleasure to visit your blog everyday , so this is just a small thanks from me ! You'll be having yourself a little village there shortly!! x noelle x


Thank you so much for the ripple pattern--can definitely use something to soothe away stresses! The new cushion cover is lovely and love the sock-cushion coordination! K x


Thanks very much for the Ripple pattern - you make it look so easy with your excellent instructions and photos. I will do a test pattern as you suggest and then may start the blanket a little earlier than originally planned!

Finally we have some sun here on the east coast but only just now this afternoon.

Have a great weekend.

Hi Lucy,

lovely pictures your home looks so neat and tidy, though will that last during the half term? I know ours won't!!

Busy, busy today myself so will pop back later for a more indulgent read.

Have a lovely weekend,

Nina x


Relly love your Friday posts which always make me feel very weekendy. I also have my County Homes magazine waiting and now am having to stop myself from starting yet another project but the ripple is calling me! Too many on the go already! Have a lovely weekend - will drop in for peek at your wool on Monday.


Hi Lucy, lovely post again! I am going to have a go at the ripple, thanks so much for posting the pattern. Do you remember on my stand at Country Living my friend Kate who was there on Friday and Saturday? Well, her house and Kate is in the latest issue of Country Homes & Interiors (page 26). I had to phone her up and ask who her cleaner was...!! Her house is utterly gorgeous but, the article doesn't do it justice. It looks really minimal in the magazine and it really isn't, it is lovely, homely, cottagey and gorgeous. Sigh! Have a great weekend. Kathyx


Lucy, thank you - what a lovely blog you have. Very colourful, inspiring - full of beautiful things!

Have a nice weekend! - I´m going to have nightshifts in ICU .... work, work work :)

Greetings from Finland

Lori French

I'd love to find some colourful yarn like yours, do you buy it over the internet? Grateful if you could share address. And as for the ripple design, well, I am starting tonight, that is sure. A BIG THANK YOU, love, L xxx
