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, stay at home Mum with three young children. We live in a 100year old Victorian house in the North of England which we are slowly renovating, and here I spend my days :: mothering, decorating, crocheting, baking, sewing, crafting and gardening. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world. xxxx

I love Clothkits... I had a baby changing mat/bag from them in the early eighties. I am going to see if they do something similar. It was fab. Lovely post {*}

Anne

I really think my heart would have imploded with love and gratitude! Such a special thing, to be able to show those we love the joy and wonder and energy that comes with being creative.
I have a miss4yo who might just need to get a kit for her birthday next year I think!

Hello Lucy- such a fabulous post as always. I love the doll and her little blankie too! So wonderfully colorful!
Thank you so much for sharing all your creations! This is one reason I've listed you as one of my favorite blogs of 2010!

Oh that is just too sweet - your girl loves her mama, that´s for sure (and vice versa)! :-)

Lovely doll as well, unfortunately no use for me to make one since my boys have outgrown the phase where dolls were somewhat OK..! :-D

Jacquie

Awwwww Lucy, that is such a sweet note . I love your blanket and little ladies doll you both made together . Special times :0)

Beautiful - nothing better than to be like your mum xxxx

Wondeful post. Off to look at Clothkits now. You have been the inspiration for me to "re-learn" to crochet and am doing really well (about 14 rows in) with my blanket. Huge thanks xx

del

Oh boy, that made me teary-eyed! How sweet! Of course she wants to be like her very talented Mum, who wouldn't? Kiki is beautiful and the story behind her even more so.

Lesley

Lovely, cosy post as always, Lucy. I remember Clothkits from my own childhood. I think Little Lady is following Mum's footsteps in being able to pick gorgeous colours!

Denise

I made up clothes for my kids in the 80's from Clothkits but I don't remember them having dolls then.

hales

that is such a sweet note! there are tears in my eyes!

hi
hey Lucy!!!
HAVE A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR AND WISH THE SAME FOR YOUR FAMILY TOO...
BABY "B" is going to be ONE in Jan and may the new year bring new pleasures and may you always inspire with your positive vibes

Fiona

I had forgotten about Clothkits - never had a doll, but my Mum did dress us in some of their clothes and, as a teenager, I made myself something to wear from one of their kits (it was the 80's and I'm relieved there is no photographic evidence!!).

What a lovely doll - no wonder your daughter wants to sew and crochet like her mum!!

Lisa Mason

That is the sweetest story. What a great mum you are!

Patsy

Happy New Year Lucy.
What a lovely little post and what a great end to the year.The love of a Child.
XOXO

 Joyce Stewart

Wonderful - a choice post altogether! Love the doll - I too never heard of them but I'm off to browse the site.....a great little blankie too...love the 'tassels'.

ruth

What a lovely story! Makes me want to dig out the sewing machine and play a bit. Happy New Year, Lucy, to you and your family. Your blog is always delightful to read.

Kate

That note is too too precious! I teach elementary school in the States, and I simply adore your daughter's "invented spelling" - I can almost hear her authentic little voice sounding out "teenaga". <3 Thanks so much for sharing! You always brighten my day.

Christine Warren

What a sweet note! Put it somewhere safe so you can keep it forever. It's a wonderful gift.

Rachel

what a sweet post : )

Amy

Oh my goodness.....what a precious note! Love the doll & love her blankie....especially those tassles on the corners....just the perfect finishing touch!

Mommy Chicken

Music to a mother's ears. Good for you Lucy, well done!

Carol

Indeed "too sweet for words", little lady is certainly a chip off the old block. I'm sure she will soon be showing us all her creations.
The doll is so very sweet and love her new blanket, perfect colour choice too.
Carol xx

Marie

Oooh, that is so sweet!

Melissa P

Does it get any better than that? A young girl hooked on the love of handmade and the joy of creating things. Such a delightful future for you both to ponder.

The dolly blankie is precious too!
