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

Oh my goodness.. have spent an inordinate amount of time taking in the wonderfulness of your blog.. I run a shop (skybluered studio) in Guisborough North Yorks where we serve delicious tea while I teach crochet, we sell work from local artists too, and do art projects...

So far I have made a lovely layered flower.. was making them last year, but yours are prettier than mine were .. need something lovely to put them on! I think you're utterly brill and totally inspirational!

I see that you made this lovely chair several years ago. As I watched it being created I was picturing it in your lovely new studio...but that's alright you can create something MORE. Your studio is a dream come true...I'm still hoping for one...in my own home one day when space become available. Enjoy, living your dream come true...and again, I LOVE YOUR CHAIR. It suits my own tastes as well.

Hello Lucy, I have just had a look at your chair and am soooooooooooo impressed. You really are something, and I admire you for so many things, not least your pain over your lovely mum. I do hope she is improving daily, and think about you often. Lots of love, kayxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Hola Lucy, is very nice what you do, I am Peruvian and I live in Argentina, my English is bad, but I wanted you to know that I admire everything you do and your outlook on life. Saludos.


I love this! So fantastic and inspiring! I am in the middle of upholstering a chair that is very dear to me, because it once belonged to my grandparents.... but have been stalled for a while, wondering how to finish it. I'm an avid crocheter and now you have inspired me to jazz it up and enjoy it...and then begin the sofa which was also my grandparents'!Yippee! I have a plan!


Wow amaging!!You are so talented lucy and your way of using colors ang making everything cheerful is fabolus.


Be still my heart ... I AM IN LOVE!

That is one very happy, happy chair. =)



Diane Maudsley

I just love your work, so colourful and cheery.


Hi there!

Just like usual, I love everything you do... I would like to know which type of fabric you used, I'm planning to do something like it and I would like to know if normal cotton fabric would be strong enough to sew a sofa seat cover (it's around 46 inches wide and 26" long).

Thank you very much!


Merhaba,cok guzel blogunuz

super. ben tesekkur ederim



Good grief that's gorgeous!!! I have my grandmother's old wicker rocker in my basement, and it's been awaiting a worthy make-over for about 30 years now! Thank you SOOO much for the inspiration. I know I can do the patchwork, and the pillow, but I will have to hone my Granny-square skills. I just LOVE how happy it looks, and how bright. You are a girl after my own heart.... I think I am your evil twin, LOL.


I loved that chair... i do like all your colors together, makes everything seem so happy and cheerful. What yarn do you use?
