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

I thought you had forgotten about Bruges, very glad I and all your other readers can look forward to some lovely tales from there tomorrow. Great news about your sell-out textiles. I'm not surprised though, they are lovely :-)

Dear Lucy-On-Cloud-Nine ~ ~ Oooh, I'm so thrilled for you!! I can't wait to see the creations you come up with. I still don't understand how you can go from pen and paper to perfectly-stitched-fabric adorableness, but I'm quite content to sit right here in awe and enjoy!!


Hey Lucy
I have really enjoyed seeing your Stitchy Pictures here on the Blog - they are FAB and I have sewing machine envy - I have an inherited New Home machine with a sticky pedal, despite a trip to the Sewing Machine Repair Man (which means that I can only really do straight lines, long ones and so little teeny tiny free stitching is hard). I learnt on my Mum's Bernina, which she still has and I miss it :-(
Am SO glad that your pictures all sold out so quickly! Cool!


Your pictures were absolutely beautiful, I wished I could of had one but I'm sure they have gone to happy homes, but you have inspired me to get on and create!


Looking forward to the holiday pics. That machine looks like a proper bit of kit!


Well Done Lucy! I am not at all surprised that all your lovely stitchy pictures sold because they were fantastic little pieces of stitcy art. It's does sound like you are going to be a very busy bee indeed :O)

Oh Lucy...you are simply amazing! Your stitcheries are extrodinary. Good for you having sold them overnight! A great boost if you were feeling low. I can't tell you how excited I was to read a comment from you on my blog. It brought a real smile to my face. I am trying to start a business and it is in it's infant stages...lots of things to consider when starting a business!!! I am feeling so overwhelmed, so it gives me great hope when I see the possibilities that you share. Love to have you hop over to my blog at any time. You seem like a dear friend that I share my coffee with every morning. By the way...your dear friend, your Bernina, reminds me of the old metal, trustworthy machine I learned to sew on. I loved that machine!
Have fun on cloud 9 today -
Your cyberland friend,
Meagan S.

Hi Lucy, looks like I missed all the excitement on Friday though it all sounds like it was fun!

I love Bernina's and not just from a name point of view either!! They are lovely solid sewing machines. Well done on your stitcher sales,

Hi Lucy,
I enjoy your blog! We took the family on a picnic the week after one of your jaunts - your neck of the woods is much prettier than ours though. Congratulations on the warm response you received with your stitcheries - they are wonderful! Perhaps you could do one on what it looks like perched atop Cloud 9. :)


Congratulations on the sell out and wishing you continued success. x

I loved your pictures and not at all surprised they sold quickly.Would it be too much to hope you can give us a tutorialette, so we can have a go? Cloud Nine must be very crowded, because we're all on it with you. Thank you XX


WOW excellent news!!!! I'm not surprised you are so happy! (I wish I could sell my knitted toys etc that quick!!)

Can't wait to see your next creations!

Lucy Locket-Pocket

Lucy, I'm not surprised your pictures received such a rave response - they truly are gorgeous! And very inspiring too!

Hello Lucy
I love your designs and colours, and would love to own one of your fab pictures! Are there any plans for any more of Robin Hoods Bay - (it's one of our favourite places), I loved the earlier one you did?
A bit late perhaps (!) but I have at last (in response to one of your posts a while ago) posted my photos of my granny squares on my blog, so would love you to take a look.
Best wishes

lately im not able to respond much to your posts, june and july is super peak for me at work. wanna congrats u and so happy that u found something to indulge yourself besides crochet. also glad that you found yourself back again at the attic24. and by the way, u do own an antique!!! its was such a blessings.


you know, I think that fishy one you have pictured there is my absolute favourite :)


that's fantastic, lucy! i was given my great grandmother's sewing machine the other day and i could burst from excitement. the antique metal ones are amazing, aren't they?

glad things are so sunny in the attic : )


I understand your love of your "solid old metal thing". I have a solid old metal Necchi machine that I love. In fact, when I was faced with a scare that it may have a problem that couldn't be fixed (thankfully a false alarm), I went searching on ebay for an identical replacement. I have three now! I use two and one is my daughter's. You can never have enough of a thing you love!


I love your sewing machine! I also have a Bernina and have used it for 20 yrs now. Love it.


When things are a little difficult it is good to be able to come and look at such beautiful vibrant work! Thank you Lucy.


So so pleased for you. I knew you would sell, sell, sell!




im soo happy for you that the gorgeous pictures flew off...it is the best pick you up isn't it? i love your old bernina...its that lovely cream colour...i have an old neechi which will be moving into a shop im about to open...i'll do any home sewing on my more modern basic brother one i reckons...anyways
well done again!


well Lucy - your work is just beautiful so don't be surprised and definately don' undersell yourself. Wishing you lots of luck and happiness as you stitch away...
