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

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?

very good

Really love this chair. You are obviously a perfectionist when it comes to the detail. The colours are just fabulous. I think you will like one of the knitted cushions on my website that I found in a french brocante (under portfolio). Vicky

It's gorgeous! I just love you and all your color! As much as you make me feel drab, you also inspire me to become less so...


That came out just fantastic. Such an inspiration. Hmmm, I wonder how my old ladies victorian chair would look with this idea. It needs some help.


wow!! this is amazing


trés belle création!!!!!!!!! magnifique! bisous


I love your chair! Will you come across the pond (it's only to Maine!), and make one for me? Love it! I love your blog.


Stunning!!! I love it!!


I love your work! Congrats. regards from Brasil


Love it, well done.


love love love your chair - if anything says attic 24 then it definitely is this chair!



I love all of your color choices. This makes me really want to learn to crochet. Hopefully I'll get around to it eventually.

Ack! There are no words to adequately describe the yummy wonderfulness of it all. I loved the shawl, then the pillow.... oh, and when the patchwork came out, I couldn't read to the end of the post fast enough...... (gotta see the cushion, now!)

Totally, would not fit in my Pottery Barn meets Restoratin Hardware man-friendly home, but gosh, I have serious envy...

Hello. I haven't commented before, although I have been happily lurking about your site for some time now. I just wanted to let you know that I (and my very dear friend, also) am a huge fan of yours. I am saving up my yarn ends to make a flower pot cover similar to your jar cover :). Your home is beautiful and this chair is just amazing!! Ever since the first glimpse at your little stash of fabrics, I have been inspired to make a quilt (something I have wanted to do but have been putting off for some time).
Keep these beautiful things coming! I just love them all!


Hi Lucy and thank you so much for dropping by my blog - it brightened my day no end! I'm also a biiig fan of patchwork - but haven't seen fit to do any myself for literally years - and I've never done anything as adventurous as this. I have a big stash here waiting for the time and inclanation. Your chair is so perfect and the colours so amazingly coordinated with your crochet - it is truly great! I'm hoping to make some little place mats some time soon - maybe one day!


Fantastic! Love the chair, blanket and pillow!


Color talks to me the way it talks to you! SO good to see! Thanks for posting these lovely pics!



That is simply amazing! AWESOME job!


What a lovely journey you've had with your chair - it looks amazing! I am now in the process of making a path towards my buried sewing cabinet, cos I want to try patchwork again!!! You are such an inspiration.


You are most inspiring. The blog - abeachcottage also recycles,but all white as opposed to your love affair with colour. I have a bet each way depending on mood, and change my decor to create different moods. Like you, who needs drugs to hit the highs. There is so much to create and explore, and that's just in the realm of textiles.
Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm. Enjoy the patchworking but remember it's as addictive as crochet.


OH! I LOVE the patchwork! The whole chair is fantastic!!!!


Fantastic colours - what a joyous creation and also wonderful writing. You could say I was 'hooked'. Thanks for sharing.
