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

The idea of a completely "home made decorations" tree sounds wonderful! I hope the little people don't lose speed/interest on the production of ornaments. Have a lovely day!

I have been stopping by your site enjoying your blog. You have a wonderful site and I enjoy sharing in your creativity. I will continue to stop by regularly.

I think the completely homemade ornaments would be perfect for your christmas tree! What is up there so far is great. Can't wait to see the lamp shade.

Great blog I look forward to reading it and doing your crochet patterns, the birdies are very cute and the stars also, we just love them in our home. Thank you. Be well and rest.

So good to hear from you Lucy!!! Glad to read you've been slowing it down a bit. So looking forward to tomorrow's reveal AND don't forget to show us the bag OK?


Hello Lucy! We don't seem to keep in touch like we used to and I just wanted to pop by and wish you well. Do you think little lady's crocodile has anything to do with pantomime's and Captain Hook perhaps? Just a random thought! Take care.x


Hey Lucy,

Thanks for the blog fix, I needed it. So glad to hear things are good.

Oh, I am so glad to hear from you. I have been anxiously awaiting your return. I think the homespun tree idea is awesome and something your kids will remember for a long time. Can't wait for the Ta-Dah moment tomorrow. Thanx for keeping us inspired!!


Hey!! Nice to "read" you again... !! I missed you these few days...
question: why are your feet swollen??... mmmm...

Lucy, have been my greatest inspiration... I'm working hard to show you (I hope before Christmas) my ripple...
Lots of hugs for U and family.


Good to have you back again! Look after those poor swollen feet of yours and take it easy! Crochet something! ( haha, as if you needed to be told ).


Lovely that you are back!
Be nice to see how the tree evolves - if you feel like doing baubles you can, otherwise why not let the little people take it over? Never mind the mountain - they are for looking at not climbing, and you can visit at any time. Bumps can make life pretty uncomfortable and take a lot out of your normal energy levels. Just take things as they come; there will be other Christmases to run around like mad. I hope you've enjoyed your time-out. Give yourself the best Christmas present- have a relaxing easy going Christmas. Love your Christmas star - yummy colours!


oh you made my day Lucy.

You will keep all those 'home-spun' tree decorations for the years to come and learn to cherish and enjoy them in 20 years' time.

Always nice to see a new entry and what a lovely way to start my week.

We just had our X'mas decorations up in the office and it's really lovely and 'Chrismmassy' in here now.

Hello Lucy

When I saw your tree top decoration, I could already hear Miss P saying Ooh can we have one like that PLEASE???

I think your children must have a lot of fun in your colourful house!

Enjoy those relaxing moments...

Warm wishes

Didn't anyone tell you crocodiles like to hibernate in Christmas trees as the green works as a camouflage next to the green of the tree?
Besides crocodiles are just Waaayyyy cool and do have that lovely green color we can always find in your projects ; )

I wouldn't worry too much about an undecorated tree Lucy, ours is still bare all apart from lights and ribbon and I really have no excuses - though maybe tonight, maybe.......?

Love the children's Christmassy pictures,

Nina xxxx


I'm new to your blog and am totally amazed by your creativity and colourfulness :) Lovely treedecorations!


We decided to do a handmade only tree this year a couple of months ago and everyone is loving it. The kids have worked hard to get it all decorated and had lots of fun creating wonderful ornaments.. Your children would love doing the whole tree, I know mine did. Glad you are getting some resting in.


love the decorations can't wait to see your lampshade

The Coffee Lady

ALL your presents are finished? Oh dear. I think I shall stop speaking to you now.


Awww Those ornaments are so precious! lol. Can't wait to see the lamp shade!


Lucy, it seems that you have hit the perfect pace, and should continue that way as it feels right. The tree is adorable with all the smalls' creations! Take care and keep warm!

I am so glad to hear from you.I have been waiting for some news from your blog in my sidebar.Guess you have to relaxs a bit.I am looking forward for tomorrow.See you then.

You could put your snowflakes on the tree- that would qualify as homemade as well as very HOOKY indeed!!

I saw some ornaments on the Eddie Ross blog (google him you are sure to find it) made with strips of material- might be something you would enjoy!
