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

That little strand of crochet squares is ADORABLE! I love it. The craft table/station looks like heaven! I am embarking on my own granny stripe blankey now (I finally feel strong enough in my crochet "skills"). Thanks for all your lovely inspiration. Can't wait to see the toilet paper roll people!


love those little squares.....glad you enjoying your summer......make the most of the little ones, the time just flies!


Ahhhhh TRP! Great fun. I better start collecting. xx


I LOVE that you've had time to post more lately! I just love reading about you and your family.


Ooh another beautiful post. Little squares look fab glad you had a lovely day xx


Great job with the regular blogging! You make us all so happy. I love the first picture!


Oooh well done with the new little sqaures! What a lovely day you've had. Yay to our scrumptious Little B's! Hope all is well x


Your Little B is growing so quickly. It's amazing. I'm looking forward to seeing the tp roll creations.


I like to look at your attic-view photos and pretend that I can juuuuuuust aboutttttt see "my" little house, and say a little "helloo house!" and wave to it.
Btw, TOTALLY with you on the scrummy Little-B front. Don't worry, I'm not going to eat him up but I am going to have to have some more cuddles soon, oh yes. :-D
thanks for your Whiskey-comments too, poor little bun.
Lots of love and hugs from Heather xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Am loving your T.R.P posts!!! Had an idea, we should set up a flickr group and call it Roll Models??? xxxxxxxxxx


Well I'm really excited I want to see the TRP NOW, I can't wait!

Lucy ~ how lovely to hear from the Attic so soon. I am really looking forward to seeing your TRP family with all their little clothes ~ I love those cute little crochet squares and can't wait to see your little TRP self model it's lovely crochet cardi. I am glad that you are having lots of wonderful summer holiday time with your little people, the holidays go so very fast ~ my two go back to school tomorrow and although I will miss them terribly, I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to coming home from the school run in the morning and having a well earned cuppa and indulging in a little bit of peace and quiet! :O) xx


WooHoo! So exciting to see another post! Sounds as if you're having a wonderful time!
Mr. EG doesn't really get the crafty thing either. Kinda strange considering that his mom and sister are arty/crafty people....
Anyhow, I get it and quite enjoy reading about your adventures in craftland! Keep the posts coming and I'll use more exclamation points!!!!!!


I totally understand the husband thing. Mine just listens, rolls his eyes and nods his head. They just do not get it!
You do such beautiful crochet! I love that you use such bright colors, I do the same. ;o)

Aahh, another great posting. Love, love your mini-granny squares and looking forward to seeing what you'll make with them. Also love the view from your attic window - so serene.

Specially lovely post today, but specially lovely day anyway, because second grandchild, James, arrived this morning!200 miles away, but we saw him on Facebook. Technology is wonderful and it delivers Attic24 pleasure too. I am impressed by your Supermum activities xxxxx

I'm a recent reader of your blog. You picked some ragwort recently for a posy in your caravan - please note that RAGWORT can be LETHAL. It contains toxic alkaloids which are not only lethal for horses but it can also affect humans, causing jaundice and liver damage which can be fatal, especially to children. Please teach your children not to touch this pretty but lethal weed. Anyone trying to eradicate it from their garden is recommended to use gloves.


Well done Lucy - mini grannies are lovely - men just don't get the crafting thing!

How lovely to have two posts in two days. You sound as though you have had a great day. Days like today need to be remembered when you have a day when nothing goes to plan!

I love the school holidays and the freedom they bring.



Sounds like it's been another lovely crafty day for you!!

Angie Padilla

I have to tell you... I actually am a quilter and crochet very rarely. But I follow your blog just because I love to see the pretty pictures and all your lovely colours! It certainly brightens my day!


What a lovely post! How well you describe that intense excitement of creativity (it doesn't matter what it is, it's whtever you're inspired to make at that moment)and the frantic energy it can generate. Lots of people don't get it - but fortunately thanks to blogs we can find lots of people who do! Keep enjoying it, Lucy! x x x


You are amazing. I should bookmark this post so I know where to come for complete inspiration! I must try those mini grannies :)


Awwwh, loving those chubby little baby feet!


Lovely to have you back so soon! Love the teeny grannies and looking forward to the TRP ta-dah. So nice to get a view from the attic again. :)
