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 is absolutely beautiful and fits in with your decor so nicely! Congratulations - I don't know how you do it all. Love to check your blog every day before I go out the door for work (thankfully you are 5 hours ahead of Boston!) Happy Holidays :)


Wow that is absolutely beautiful x


I Love it! It makes me want to use my podge for things like this in my craft room when the time comes to decorate that. Great job Lucy!!!


Anything that covers up white plastic has to be an improvement by definition. However this is really very lovely indeed even when NOT compared with its original state!


I thought, from the first picture of it hanging in situ with a couple stripes, that THAT was the Ta-dah! And I thought, oh. well. It looks better but not-quite-Lucy and a bit restrained. DOH! So glad you finished it all around. I love it!

That is beautiful!


It's really beautiful! the mosaic effect when lit up is stunning!


Love it, Lucy!!! So colorfull!
Great Idea!



Your lamp is amazing and gorgeous! I love it! When the light is on, it looks like stained glass. You are such a creative person! My 21 year old daughter needs to see your blog. A couple of years ago, she used the decopatch method to cover an entire bed-side table.


Hi again Lucy, Thought I would check your blog early and you had already posted, I was soooooooooo happy! Love the end project, it looks so fantastic!!! Did you use small size squares to equal strips, looks like it with the light on! But anyway it is beautiful. Love all you create. All my best to you this day, love, Robbie


What a happy hippie lamp. :-)

I love your lampshade. I think it turned out beautifully! I can't wait to order paper off the net and try this myself. Great job!!


That looks lovely, well done xx


What a lovely lampshade...it looks like stained glass when the light is on. Great project!


That is absolutely wonderful


Your lampshade story and picture was great w/morning coffee! I was inspired by your squares and made a bright aghan for me and another bright one for a friend for Christmas. I'm working on a 3rd in warm colors for another friend and small squares to make into a bag with a fabric lining. I even put bright yellow pillows with my afghan and I love it. Thanks for the inspiration and color love!


That, is absolutely fabulous. You are so clever!
