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

Ooooh, yes, beautiful, beautiful pictures. And you are so right about the styling. I so took it all for granted before! The salt dough necklace has "Lucy and kids" written all over it!! I can just see them in your beautiful colors!


I was tempted to buy this book, but as my little one is a seven year old boy, I wasn't sure how appropriate it would be. I's still tempted though, just to buy it for myself!


I recently borrowed a book on aquarium fishes for just that reason- the glossy, bright photography! (Hopefully mine's not overdue yet though. But maybe I should check!)


I loved your review so much I have just reserved the book online from my library. I have avoided fines since the library helpfully started sending emails just before my books are due back - very useful!


What a cute little book you have shared with us! I think the last picture featuring the puppets are adorable:) I do hope that my two year old likes crafts when he is a wee bit older. Would love to see what your wee one's could come up with. I'll bet your talent runs in the family:)


guauuu! pero que cosas mas lindas para poner en practica!!!


Hi Lucie

Have been so busy and unable to leave comments etc. Enjoying the sun and working on papers until 3.30 am in the morning to make up for being with the family on the beach - lovely but manic.

Just had to comment to say thank you for wanting to buy a mosaic. Will talk to you about that another time.

Plus you need to move down here - nice sea and me! We have so much in common. I love that Green Craft book it is the last book I bought!

Sorry about the grammar in this etc but in such a hurry - all good though just need 48 hours in each 24 hours!

Have a lovely day - love Emma xxxxxxx


What a lovely book - you must make salt dough crafts together...so much fun! I also love making my own playdough for kids (haven't any kids of my own, this is all work related) but it's all time, especialy if they don't enjoy the making of the dough just the playing!


Thanks for the little peak inside, I have had a little gaze at this book in our bookshop. Maybe I should add it to my (ever increasing) birthday list!?


Beautiful book, thanks for sharing!


A wonderful book and well worth the fines I would say! I will have to try to find a copy for my kids. Thank you for introducing me. ~Kelly

Hi Lucy, I bought that lovely book from Amazon and even though there are lots of girly things in it my youngest son and I have made the noughts and crosses from beach finds and 2 old glove people. Its a wonderful book. I also have her book Sewing In No Time which has lovely designs.
Hope the gorgeous weather is in Yorkshire too. Karenx


What a lovely book, you are so right about the photography, am thinking about new ways to photograph my houses and beach huts!! lovely post again X x x noelle


The book looks like such fun and my youngest is 17. I checked with my library and they don't have it yet. Sometimes it's hard to find English books here in the states. Thank goodness for The Book Depository.

My favorite are the paper flowers.

Hiya Lucy,

that book looks fab - I can see why you hung onto it!

take care,

Nina x


Totally agree Lucy it's all very gorgeous. It has made me want to take a trip to the library and have myself a little drool.


Un piccolo saluto!!

Stuff it being a book for children - I think it appeals to lots of us big children too!

Must see if my library has a copy now!
NB - my last visit was to pay off a hefty fine too!


OOOh, lovely lovely book. Another one to add to my wish list. Unfortunately it will be a while. My brain is even worse than yours or anyone else's I fear as left buggy on pavement yesterday and drove away. Needless to say buggy no longer there! No books for me today or tomorrow..... Lxx


We've sold quite a few copies of that very book in the shop - I like to have a flip through in a quiet moment too. It strikes a great balance between achievable and yet still aspirational.


What a lovely book and such good ideas for children to make. I think it would be worth buying, as it is the sort of book to go back to again and again.


Well, I think your photos are always equally beautiful! By the way, I went to the library at the weekend to return my overdue books and pay a fine of.....NINE POUNDS!!!!


What a treat! I'm in total agreement about the beatifully put together shots.

While my six month old isn't quite ready for such things, maybe mummy could make some anyway...

I have that book as well :) I love crafting and my kids as well. I am happy to announce I have finished my babette, and am on to a BB of some sort ;)
If you check out my flickr site, you can see my babette here
and if you look at my monster set, you will see the sock monsters / sweater monsters I make, love them :)

Building home

i just love to place them on my cabinet..
