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

Lucy, it's incredible! I was so excited to check in and see it today! Little KJ said "Mommy, make THAT one!!!" when I showed her the pictures, so I guess I have another project to add to my list of Lucy-inspired to do's! I LOVE the picture of you cuddled in it, just perfect! Enjoy!!! Now, if I could just get the kiddos off of our big blue so I can finish The Edge, lol!


That is an absolutely heavenly blanket - and congratulations on finishing it! My shelves are far too full of unfinished projects (including six year old knitted squares for a blanket!). So when are you going to start the next one?!

gorgeous blankie Lucy !!! you should be very proud of yourself,


yummy, yum, yum :)


BB is absolutely gorgeous - have been following your progress over the last few months and the finished blanket is fab :0)

It's definitely 'one of a kind' which makes it so special to the creator! The colours certainly inspire me, too, Lucy. I tend to go for the neutral since I am not as brave to go towards the vibrant colour. What colour did you sew it together with? Did you stitch or crochet it together?
Congrats on the BB Reveal today!


Congratulations, Lucy. It's simply stunning and well worth 44 balls of lovely Rowan pure wool dk. So inspiring!


Absolutely stunning, there is no wonder at all that you are thrilled with it, who wouldn't be. It is totally and utterly gorgeous! ! !


I needed a bit a inspiration, thank you! I started a blanket using you summer garden squares tute a few months back and it has been slow going, a square here and square there... I had put it down for a bit to do some sewing (and suffer through my first trimester of pregnancy, #5 due in Jan.!) but seeing yours all complete has given me a new passion for my own, maybe I can get it done before the winter is over, lol! My only problem now is that our local craft store re-did their yarn department and 2/3 of the way through my squares they are no longer carrying one of my colors! Looks like I will have to wait a bit longer to get moving again since I have to order my yarn online! Your blanket looks beautiful, BTW!


Congrats! You should be proud to have finished such a lovely project!


That is one fantabulous blanket...I love love love it!! I bow to your superior ability to make large items...I do not have the sticking power!

Well done on such a wonderful achievement! It's gorgeous. :)


Lucy - this blanket is sooooo gorgeous. Thank you again for your lovely tutorials. Without these I would NEVER have got the crochet technique right. I just love crocheting now and am making a granny square blanket in Shetland wool.

oh wow lucy.. what a beauty! love love love the blankie.. so colourful and am sure it will make you warm on any cold day! congrats!


Wow! It looks fabulous and so colourful. Well done you.



It's amazing, Lucy! Such a masterpiece! I love how the pattern repeats in some places and then is different in other ways and the colours are fab. Definitely worth all the hours you put in and I shall miss reading all the updates about it! What's next?

Chez Tine

Wooooowwwww!!! Go Lucy, Go Lucy! What a thing of beauty! Well done you! I just LOVE the way you put colours together. I will definitely be copying your lovely borders (when I get that far!) they finish it perfectly! Enjoy it!

Fantastic job..


Thanks for sharing this milestone! Seems like BB symbolizes you in many ways. Joyful and inspiring!


OOOOOOOO it`s soooo lovely, the colours are gorgeous.I think the photos are lovely, you`ve done a brilliant job. you have a good eye for colour and how to make the colours work brill, brill! I made one of your jar jacket`s yesterday for my kitchen & now i have to hurry up & eat the Bon Mamon Jam!! Can`t wait to see your next project, no pressure lol! Love Carole in Rossendale xxx


Love BB it's a 'practical work of art' IMHO... of all the shots I think the bed shots really show it off to its best advantage it's like looking at a page from your magazine syou like to read and show us....

Because of your use of colour it's made me start using brighter colours I normally wouldn't use in my crocheting especially when its not garment based.


What a lucky day for me to find your blog on the big grand finally of BB.
How nice it is! My mother had made me a BB long ago. That thing was so WARM!
Love your blog…I am adding you to my favs!


I loved this blanket. Very beautiful.Congrats.. I love your blog.
