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

Hi Lucy, truly beautiful squares, tiny coloured jewels. Devx


Wow! that was a quick second project. How about backing one with the other?

Lovely Lucy! Ah I so remember that time.... Alas mine are now 9 and 11 and it's not the same...The 11 is off with her mates preferable with no parent in sight and the 9 year old is inseparable from IPOD/Laptop/TV....but then she DOES crochet! I love your tiny grannies!I crocheted with a pot of tea at Bolton Abbey while they paddled in the Swale. Thanks to you that they agreed to go there! It was the photos of your money trees on the blog! THANK YOU. Lucy the puppy also loved it there!


So nice!! I love the colors!


Wow i've bought yestarday country home & interiors ... Very nice yours granny squares.

Oh it looks beautiful! And I know what you mean by the kids at that age. You sit on your own, just looking at them, reading and, of course, crocheting, and they just play on their own.

The small squares are so cute!!! Really love it!

Instead of blocking "the traditionell way", I "steam-ironed" my last blanket. It was so much easier, and the result just as good. It saves a lot of work and I like that... (But it must, of course, be wool or cotton yarn.) Anna-Karinxxxxxxxxx


Gorgeous as always! Your projects are all so lovely, Lucy. Can't wait to see the next one..


Love those little squares Lucy ~ they are wonderful. It is lovely when the LP get big enough to play in the park by themselves and it certainly looks like you made good use of your time in the park. If you have the time to look I have a little picture of Attic 24 flowers on my blog that I would love you to see :O)

Hi Lucy, Really nice cushion front! I have the same feeling about crocheting or knitting a project in a special place, the project holds the memories. That's why I like to look at very old handmade things, embroidery for example of blankets made by hand. What have they see and heard? Who made them? What was she like? Mmm... nice thinking...
I will show you my crocheting scarf in process some day. And thank you for the extra info by the recipe in you e-mail! Nice day and till the next post!

I love your granny cushion covers, especially the little squares. I know what you mean about the time in the park. Mine are mostly teenagaers now and my 10 year old is happier on the playstation. I'd look odd sitting in the park on my own but I did make a baby's granny blanket in the back garden this summer, inspired by your blog of course!


Gosh that was quick!! It looks so nice too! Makes me want to go home now and start knitting!! (Crochet is not on my list of skills yet!)


Hi!Very nice work as always!! I have found a internett shop in Sweden, and ordered a lot of the Rowan wool DK that you use. Exspensiv, yes, but hopefully is it worth it!?So I can`t wait. We do have a lot of nice yarn in Norway too, but I wanted to try it. Anne


I love the mosaic quality of the little squares lucy. I have been working on a blanket that combines lots of little squares, similar to your own, on a snowy white background and it's got me to dreaming about future little square projects. Like yourself, I think a few cushions are in order but I should concentrate on the blanket first.

You can take a peek at the beginnings of my blanket at www.littlehillbigsea.typepad.com/little_hill_big_sea/2009/08/my-entry-2.html

Hi Lucy, this is gorgeous as ever. I agree with poster number 2 - I think they would look wonderful joined together as one cushion. They look like they belong together. I sent you an email the other day & not sure whether you've received it or not. Anyway, it was about a Your Home magazine from May 2009 I've got that has an article/interview with Nicky Fraser, aka The Vintage Magpie, that I thought you might like to see. Well, I've found another one from Your Home June 2009 - an article/interview with Sara Mahon, of Girls Own Store. If you're interested let me know and I'll pop them in the post to you. Love your blog. Sam Terry x


Bravo I love the little squares. Im maling a afghan for my sister right now cant blog about it because she reads my blog but it is so cute!
Have a blessed crochet week


Fantabulous! I love the colours. Thanks for brightening up my morning (and making me a tad envious...)

Love the new square cushion Luce!

Love the pretty squares. Your sense of colour is just amazing. Thought of you on Saturday in John Lewis Oxford Street as I stood transfixed in front of the Rown yarn stand!



Hi, beautiful inspiring work as always! 2 is better than 1 though, so do go ahead and make 2 beautiful cushions rather than putting the big square with the grannies; as one side will always be hidden in that case which would be a shame. That way you will have quality AND quantity! I'm very interested to see what you will do next - just like everyone else is. Your sense of colour is second to none and totally works. Thanks for sharing.


I love the little squares cushion. The colours are so wonderful. Isn't crochet so versatile? The same stitches used in both squares, to give completely different results.



liebe Grüße


Has your egg cosy arrived yet?
