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

Are you SURE you don't want to make me a hostess apron for work? It would be a talking point..may even get you more publicity?!

Just a thought...well done clever girl x


Clever girl!!!but i must remember to get some american tan tights to complete the ensemble!Those hostess aprons do a bundle in our neck of the woods!!!!!
seriously..very workable..!!

I just discovered your blog yesterday, a friend told me about it and she thought I would love it and I do. You have inspired me to take up the hook again and try some squares. Your square is goregous! I will be looking forward to the pattern. I have some yarns and hook ready. I like your square better than the other, also because less holey. Have fun!


Since discovered your blog three weeks ago or so, I can't help checking everyday to find amazing entries you post...I'm an absolute beginner and I'm learning so much with you. Lovely and great work.
Greetings from Spain


Love your version of the square. I have been using your tutorial for joining granny squares, thanks so much, that was a lifesaver and stopped me from tearing my hair out!!!!!! I can now happily continue on my way to 300+ squares without having to sew them together, yippee!!!


lovely square Lucy, but am dying to see the squares and stripes blanket. Hope it's progressing nicely! Happy hooking!

Just to let you know I've only just recently discovered your lovely blog via a post on the Moneysavingexpert forums and I think it's great. I've been out today and bought Country Living magazine and two bunches of tulips!


Hi Lucy!
Been waiting for a fresh post to get in at the front end of the comments. :) I LOVE your blog, and sleeping/eating/living/breathing your archives pretty much 24/7 has helped me back to my usual self after a really nasty month. You've inspired me to start my own blog: amamzing.blogspot.com if you'd like to take a look. :) I think we have a lot in common (obsession with granny squares... flowers... color... the seaside... rambling posts jk). Just saying I appreciate it and I'm DYING to make a hexagon blanket. At least pop over to see the last pic in today's post. You'll like it. ;)

Love your new square, I think they will be stunning in rows with stripes in between, especially with the amazing colours you use. Can I suggest perhaps one less chain in the corner group to reduce the hole in the corner. Just thinking when joined there would be two holes pretty close together. I'm not being critical, heaven forbid, just a suggestion. You make me smile - your enthusiasm is infectious! I made three brooches, yesterday and am just waiting for the 'backs' to arrive from ebay. You see........ you spread happiness. Thankyou.

Fantastic carnt wait for the pattern love it, love it love it. As I am only a beginner with crochet I look forward to giving it a go.
Keep up the blogging in between all the children.


I can't believe you are being all creative when you must be getting zero amounts of sleep. I really like the new pattern (much more than the original ;-))

Have fun with your glorious colours.


How very clever of you! I love this new design. Well done.


Very nice, they look great. Can't wait to see the blanket, I think it will look fantastic with the stripes as well.


i'm so glad you're finding time to create again - the new square is just great - can't wait for the tutorial!!!

O Wow Lucy, Squares are amazing. cant wait for the tutorials.


Lovely version of the wagon wheel. I'm so pleased that I am nearing completion of my small Ripple blanket. My stash tends to be fabrics not yarns and I decided to only use left over wool that was already in my possesion. I am so pleased with it as I never really thought I would attempt a blanket in one go, Grannys yes, but not one as a whole. But I have to say I've really enjoyed making it, (from your pattern of course). I'm planning a Granny next and for that I will be buying some new yarn.
Happy hooking.

Love the new granny squares. I was even inspired to have a go at one of your granny square tutorials and hey it was really good. Thank you.


I do love your new design. The one with the red edge has great appeal for me. Each round appears that the little cluster gets bigger and bigger - it really is so lovely. and continues your circle within a square theme. Well done!!
I do love your blog - the colour and clarity has really inspired me. Had a big surgery recently and finding your blog inspired me to crochet - which is perfect for recovery. Small pieces to manage to hold etc and at times can only manage small amounts of concentration - so it really is perfect.


Oh, you are so clever, I look forward to seeing the blanket completed, I just know it will be lovely knowing your eye for colour x

Lucy you have done it again my friend! I too love the square much better with less holes and of course I dearly love your choice of colors. Can't wait for the tutorial! Thank you for sharing with us all. I know that your life is just beginning to settle into a routine.


Your square looks amazing !!! simple yet stunning !!! more great lucy inspiration ,bring it on !!!!


Well done on your new design and successful pattern. I only recently came across your blog as have decided to take up crocheting again. The last time I did any I was 12! That is over 20 years ago. Am truly inspired and delighted by the colours and energy of your blog! I am looking forward to trying some Granny squares!

I like your version for the same reason you do - less holes. And I am looking forward to your tutorial so I can try one. Love your blog!!!!

Love the new square! The colors are so vibrant, they make me wish for spring. Like so many others, I love your blog. This last weekend I used your "Little Birdie" as a jumping off point for a group of 40 women to make a felt "sister". They loved it! Thanks so much for all the great inspiration!


very very cool I have nights like that too where I have the most amasing ideas that keep me up all night but then I never remember them in the morning!!!!!!!!!!!
