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

Happy Friday to you and yours too, Lucy. Enjoy your magazines!


There they are again: the most beautiful colours, especially the blue sky. I know that special blue, it's wonderful!
Enjoy your weekend!

Lucy, you amaze me! Your garland project would take me weeks! And I'm so impressed (and envious!) that you have such an amazing range of felt to hand! You make it sound so quick and simple, but I think a lot of dedication and work went into it, no? Yet again, another splendiferous idea! (PS. Also love the covered dining lamp - a good makeover.) Caro x


Have a nice weekend. xxxx


Looks like you have every thing needed for a great weekend! Love the magazines and foliage. Thanks for sharing all the great inspirations for snowflakes. I really need to get around to making some. :)

Glad to hear you and the wee one are doing well!

Have a lovely Friday and weekend you too, Lucy!! I do "envy" your new magazines :) And, wow, the blue sky!! Here it's grey, almost black, the days are not very long now :(
Hope we can share "your" blue sky tomorrow.

Love Anna xxx


Happy Friday to you too!

Just one thing making my heart happy and skippy today - it's Andy-day today! Thats's right, I can see my husband for the whole weekend, as of 8pm tonight. SO excited like you wouldn't believe.

Lots of love to you :) xxxxx


Funnily enough the same tray made my heart happy and skippy last Saturday at an Ikea here in Italy. I had to have it! It's now cheering up my kitchen.

Have a great weekend.


I can see why you are so happy today and looking forward to your weekend. I love your Christmas foliage finds and that bird tray is adorable. We are supposed to get an Ikea in Denver (1 1/2 hours away) in 2 years if all goes to plan, otherwise there's one six hours away. Have a wonderful time curled up with your magazines, and a great weekend.


Love the jug with the berries and eucalyptus.

I've got that tray too! I coveted it fter seeing it on various other blogs, it is indeed lovely.

Fantastic blue skies, always a pleasure.

Enjoy your weekend.



It has been the most beautiful day today here - especially this morning; crisp and sunny with that lovely blue sky you have captured. I love those berries, (they look good enough to eat - best not though!) especially the shape of the leaves. What I really want is that bun though - yum! I saw that tray online somewhere and tracked down where it came from - you have reminded me (I had completely forgotten it); no trip to Ikea coming up anytime soon though. It is such a pretty tray and I wanted it very badly when I saw it. I'm very good at resisting magazines these days - I used to be an addict. Now I look them over, think very carefully if I "need" it and usually put it back. There is a Christmas one I want though. I haven't seen "Get creative" but as as that is just what I need to do, with curtains, blinds and the like I think I should search it out as those pictures do look rather tempting. Have a lovely weekend.

This time of year, that gorgeous blue sky trumps everything!! Have a lovely weekend with all of your weekend delights!


how lovely! the foliage looks so pretty and that tray just made my wish list.

Sky is equally blue down here in London today (well it was around midday when the sun was still up!), it's been so wonderful, makes a nice change really! I've got a trip planned to ikea tonight and i have to say, that is a very pretty tray...!


The winter foliage is lovely I particularly like the blue/green of the foliage.Magazines look interesting I will search them out.Enjoy your weekend.



Thanks so much for very beautiful pictures an popping in to my blog the other day.It was lovely to find your comment x Linda


LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your finds... Such juicy colors and inspiration. That would be enough to keep me going for awhile. The birds are wonderful and fun, I can see myself drawing them on my wall and then painting them the bright colors. Wouldn't they be fun around a window or a border at a cieling? Or even just one sitting right above a framed print on the wall? You've got my mind going, girl. I've linked to your blog through mine (a story about crochet). Have a great weekend! I find such joy in your blog!


thank you, thank you, thank you, was feeling a bit blue today(dark not like your lovely sky) , and your blog really cheered me up. I think I will try and find that tray in my local IKEA as it is lovely.

Hi Lucy
I'm skulking around feeling very miserable with the winter lurgy. Reading your blog hae cheered me up no end !!
Thank you . Love Penny L


Hello ! Your tray is really gorgeous, and it can give us some colours ideas for the little birds make with yarn and crochet !!!!
When I have seen the magazine "get creative", I have think that I also want it. So I'll ask to my daughter who live in Portsmouth to buy it and to bring me for Christmas whe she will come in France.
Enjoy your week end.

Nina - Tabiboo

Gorgeous berries and blue skies - you've inspired me to go and pick some from the garden, berries that is.

Enjoy your weekend reading,

Nina xxxxxxxx

I think this is going to be my favorite catch phrase for awhile: I love it.

"I can't wait to indulge in some snuggly blanket+tea+cake+magazine time over the weekend."

Although I might add "Crochet" in there.

Thanks for all your sharing’s this week. I have made a few snowflakes for my tree and I can't wait to make a bunch more.

Have a deliciously awesome and cozy weekend LUCY!!!!



I saw that very same tray on Ikea's online site & promised it to myself when we go there this weekend, then I come on here & see you have it! Great minds think alike ;)
Happy Friday to you too, I hope your weekend is colourful & creative!


Happy day, Happy people, it makes my heart sing with JOY!!! Smiles and Blessings to you this day and weekend, Robbie
