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

It's lovely and you seem to have found your joy again. Nice to have you back.


Ahhh Lucy, I got caught up again in your tale of Sunday! Glad the little lady is on the mend! And I too, would do anything to get out of cooking when i find myself IN THE ZONE! Gorgeous baby quilt. That was fast!


That is so pretty.


So gorgeous and sending a hug for your Little Lady.


Lucy ~ I LOVE the Baby Ripple ~ it's just the right sort of snuggly kind of blanket for a little Attic 24 baby. I'm so glad that your little girl has made a quick recovery after her fall ~ children usually bounce back a lot quicker than their parents do after such dramatic episodes :O)

love your ripply blanket so lovely and colourful! look forward to hearing more about your project. have a good day!


ooooo aaaahhhhh!! What more can I say except you're at it again!?! Something hooky that is small! Happy hooking and thank you for the tadah!


Your baby ripple is simply stunning :) congratulations.

Sorry that lil lady had a nasty accident - got to love that superglue - the best bit no needles and no scars :)

Greetings from overcast and cool northeast Pennsylvania...Dear sweet Lucy...your baby ripple is so beautiful. I know how soft the yarn is...perfect for a tiny one. The blanket has become a symbol of your acceptance,then, happiness and anticipation of the baby. Even when it is all worn and pilly, it will remind you of this time in your life. I read your post feeling quite a bit of emotion...you have allowed us all to share these moments with you. Then, when I read your little p.s. to me, I cried.You are so sweet and kind. Love...Emily


My baby girl was due on the same date as yours (how that date stays in your mind!) in 2001, she came on 30/1/01. I remember laying her little clothes out not know if she would be a girl or boy and imagining a little baby's body inside, and now she is such an amazing grown up girl x


Lovely blanket, your baby will be cosy and warm wrapped up in all those colourful stripes :-)


Gorgeous, just gorgeous!

So glad to hear that Little Lady is doing much better. Poor dear! One can't help but want to give her a big hug.

Love the baby ripple! It turned out to be so FAB! Teeny Person is going to look absolutely adorable wrapped up in it! I'm a wee bit jealous. :)

Have a super duper day Luce!


Sorry to hear about little Lady's chin, but I'm sure she will make a quick recovery, children do! loving the baby ripple, it looks so snuggly!Your little baby will be so cozy!

Oh, Lucy, Thank you SOOOO much. The day started a bit yucky, but I feel thoroughly hugged and cuddled (I could truly feel baby-ripple's super-soft cuddling powers envelop me all the way down to my stomping grounds) and I feel happy, fluffed up and very grateful. Your sharing and your dealing with life's 'little' adventures is an inspiration and encouragement to keep on going, bravely, with needle and thread in hand (or hook and yummy yarn)!
Lots of love crocheted and quilted across the distance to you and your loved ones, Valentina from Cyprus


Oh you lovely lady - I love this post, and I LOVE the baby ripple!!

Can't wait to see the evolution of your new project! You're an inspiration!


You did such a beautiful job on the baby blanket! And you didn't even plan out the color sequence!!! I can't wait to see more of the new project! I'm so excited to see what you'll do next!

Happy Hooking from Texas!


We just returned from your beautiful part of the world and surprisingly enough had nearly 2 weeks of blue skies! I looked in each village we passed through, hoping to see your attic window. Your blanket is amazing and gorgeous! Your family is very lucky to have such a talented wife/mum. You inspired me to buy flowers at my local grocery store on Monday. Not quite as nice as your asters but pretty in their own way. I look forward to your blog each day. Jill


So happy for you! The blanket is fabulous!! Perfect for your new little one. Enjoy these days they are a gift and a blessing!


Lucy, thanks for the email, I got some problems with it so I can't answer, but coudn't we get together and work out someting like it?

But for an example, starting a just easy crochet thing, put a list together, and do a mail chain and everybody crochet a bit on it (with whatever yarn they have) and then send it back to you or me?

Could be really fun :-)


You did a fantastic job on the baby blanket....AND you didn't even plan for that perfect color sequence! I can't wait to see the new project and what you'll do next!

Happy Hooking from Texas!


Baby ripple Blanket..always a nice project!!


The baby ripple turned out perfectly. It is absolutely gorgeous, as is that belly of yours. Congratulations on finishing it, I really must learn to crochet, it looks so cozy. Glad your little one is feeling better. Can't wait to see what your new project is.

Stunning adorable. What a fun looking treat for the new little one.

Luc- we have your pattern done. But, sharing with us just how many chains you started. I'm offically going to be a grandma tomorrow, so I need to get hooking on another. I just finish my last one and added a very simple border. Have a peek.

The one, two, three row idea is such a fun look and a nice change.

Hope your day is as wonderful as you have made mine.


love love love the ripply blanket for the sweet little blessing that will occupy it before you know it! so glad the chin is ok.. what a wonderful thing that super glue is!
