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

Hahaha!! I love this post. Such cuteness. Love Julia's artwork too. Hey hey, I actually made it to Robin Hood's Bay and York this last few days. Woot! Had a fab time and even went to Beninburgh Hall today. Had great fun with the portrait bit in the house. xx


You did such a wonderful job and I admire your little toilet-roll-family! What a great idea!
Have a wonderful night,


wow! Those turned out so fantastic. Your little peeps did an amazing job!


oh my i had no idea that TP rolls could be so cute! i love love love it! faces, outfits, granny scarf...perfect! My family of 5 (kids 9, 7 & 5) may need to be represented in TP rolls too!

Your TPR family look very lovely! :)


I've been catching up on all your old threads over the past few months after finding my way to your blog. I know others have said so before, but you really do bring some happy-sunny-colourful-jiggyness into my world. So I just wanted to say a big thank you (now I have gotten brave enough to say hello!).
As for the TRP - they are fab & look so at home on the mantelpiece.

They're super, thank you for having such a happy, colourful blog. You've really encouraged me in my first stumbling crochet efforts. Though we'll have to agree to disagree on Dad's Army, I'm afraid I'm obsessed with it too!


Awesome. And you're right about people inspiring you. This has inspired me to see how else I might use this idea. My brain is working now :0)


The toilet roll people are fantastic, I love them!

Beautiful picture too.

I do so enjoy your blog and it's colour and cheer!


Love the TRP family - what a brilliant idea :)

Your joy just jumps right out of the screen with your lovely project. It looks like you have had so much fun. It is great to create with your children when you can. I can find it hard finding the balance between letting them flex their creative wings and an adults desire to have somthing at the end of the creative moment. Looks like you have acheived that in spades here.And they are absolutley adorable, all the more for what they represent to you.

I do have a little tutorial on my blog that might float your boat although it does involve fabric there is no sewing involved! (I dont know if that is a pro or a con).

Thanks for such a happy post always a joy to read them.

Have a lovely week.



You're TR family is just so special. Well done, all of you, especially the little people.


Amazing how I somehow feel I know you better after viewing your TP-selves!!


The TP family are amazing! After your original post, I started to save toilet rolls, but we never got around to making them. once I show my girls your TP family, I think we'll be making ours asap!! xx

Your little family is so cute! I contemplated that self same print myself from Julia! I'm still pondering between that or Belle and Boo??!!


What a nonsensical and wonderfully crafty thing to do with the kids! I too would be out and about talking to neighbors about my TRP and they would all think I was crazy. Love it - you have a very nice TRP family!! We too are a family of 5 - have been for 2 years now, and I still am amazed at that some days. Thanks for your wonderful post!

Vicky Greenwood

Absolutely lovely - although sometimes a wee bit frustrating(!) creative projects with children can be so much fun :-) My kids love them and giggle and talk about them when we come across the results stashed away in a cupboard somewhere. Lovely that Dad was involved too ;-)


Awwwwww Lucy, how absolutely adorable! I never knew toilet roll art could be so much fun! Must try it.....not quite sure what I would end up with! ha ha!

Isn't the lovely Julia just so super talented? I am pretty much in awe of her talent, both on canvas and of the hooky kind!

Have a nice relax tonight!

Love Vanessa xxxxxxxxxxx


These are lovely :)

('Your' J looks like 'my' J! lol!)


I think the TR Peeps are totally fab! You and your little people should stand up and take a bow for a superb job. It's comforting to know that your creative gene has been passed on to them already.

Now when you are you going to make yourself a bigger version of that knitted cardie for yourself?

Love and stuff xx

I love them! They are so adorable....I completely understand your excitement!! x

nina - tabiboo

Lucy you do make me laugh - well giggle really and I absolutely need to get some of your intoxicating excitement though I do get it.....toilet rolls and crafting with the little ones - there is nothing better then a little bit of batty creativity.

Love the likenesses and as for Dads Army (((yawn, yawn, yawn))) it's right on up there with 'Last of the Summer Wine' for me - what is it about these Northern blokes?!? - no offence to all you fans out there.

take care and enjoy your bubbles,

Nina xxx

ps. you would love the book. N xxx


I was smiling the whole time I read this post. Your little cardboard family is adorable! You have every right to be excited to reveal them :)


Love Love Love the TPR family. I bet you are all as adorable in real life :). I heart your Julia Crossland print. I might have to ask for one for my birthday.

Melissa P

It is easy to see how you got "hooked" on this project. So adorable.
