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

Love your new felt cushion, very pretty! I checked out the 'Tangled Happy' some lovely things over there!
Stay warm! x


I too really love the new cushion. Wouldn't mind having one just like that.


Yes, not long until Christmas! Scary. Have you come across this Xmas reinterpretation of the springtime wreath? http://handmadewithlovebyg.blogspot.com/2010/11/christmas-wreath.html


Hi lucy,
Funny but I came across the "Tangled Happy" blog this morning for the firt time too.
Great post Lucy.
Have a great day,

I love love love your birdy cushion! I'm wishing I'd started my hyacinths a bit sooner as I've had to transfer it from the greenhouse to the fridge (!!) for its cold treatment as I found the water frozen solid in it's little bulb jar last week. I can only hope that the light does go off when I close the fridge door. But there's no real way of knowing, is there?!! :0)

It is also frigid here in the southern USA this week.. No snow or ice YET- but who knows... Would be nice for the long Christmas weekend to have a big burst of snow!Beautiful pictures of your town!


I've been loving this weather too, even if it did only get me one day off school (when other local schools were closed for three or four days - humph!!) We visited Chatsworth in the snow for the first time ever and saw the christmas decorations there.

Lovely photos. Seeing your christmas decs makes me wish I could crochet! I love the new cushion too.


I really miss the excitement of having little ones around this time of year. Thank you for sharing it with us and brightening my day.


hi Lucy ,
I simply loved your felt cushion cover ,
granny square covers are my all time favourites.
happy holidays

I am smitten with your new birdy pillow!


Love those stars! :-) The best thing about the cold is that it makes it OK to sat inside as much as possible and chrochet away! :-)

Such a happy post - just what I need right now! Take care on that ice, though!



I love the colours of your summer granny cushion..it's stunning.


Your blog has made me smile for the first time in four days. Here in Scotland we are in weather chaos. On Monday I spent 8 hrs in my car and only travelled five miles. My kids have been in school for one day in the last fortnight and today I had frozen pipes and no heating (thankfully now back on but floors still a bit wet). The school website has one child in and one at home tomorrow but I am working so will have to offload on lovely sister and brave icy roads which weather man has just announced will be chilled overnight. Amidst all this stress, you have provided a little oasis of cheer and colour. Thank you very much - Jacqui x
ps - sorry for my rant!


what a scrummy, colourful post Lucy :) Those ducks on the canal are so funny! I love watching them. They seem a bit confused about why the water has all gone hard, bless them.
see you soon m'dear :)

Thanks for the little wintry peek into your world of color and hooky-ness. Always makes my day!!

Melissa P

I agree. You can never have too much of a good thing. Especially colorful hooked good things. Stay warm!


Oh my! You haven't even started buying presents yet??? And I thought I was way behind. Hey ho I feel better now! Love that felt cushion and your summer square one too. Can't wait to see that finished up. Looks like you have even weaved in the ends!! Lovely colourful post. Thanks for the links. x


I'm a relative newcomer to your blog and I just wanted to say what a joy it is to read - it's an absolute vision of colour, especially in these bitterly cold days!

I want to crochet a cushion cover next so I'll be having a look through your amazing tutorials for some inspiration!



Hi Lucy , love your post. Gorgeous images and lovely chatty words . Love your new cushion and your cushion cover . It's great to see Granny stripe again :0)

Glad to see you feeling better. I wish I could come to that Knit and Natter group. Oh.....what I could talk about. Good post and Happy December!

Helen Tzabar

Sooo pleased you sound better, full of skippieness and colour. Take care out on that ice though or you might end up broken like me!

Brrr, lovely photos! Woolly jumper sunny days as my friend likes to call them! It's even been very cold down here in Cornwall!

Loving the christmas crochet bunting! Very colourful!

Two quickies this afternoon....
First,...all of a sudden those Hobbit boats are looking might-ie chill-ie out on the river....brrrrrr...still charmers....

Second, oh, how, I would have loved to be a fly on the wall at your knitting group. Ok, not a fly, but right there sipping the cocoal and hearing the latest.

Sorry, to hear you are colder than normal, but that's about par for the course over here. We are winter white outside now and will be until the end of March.

Your projects are coming right along.

Did you say 16 more sleeps...E.Gads, am I in trouble now...

Better start the shopping, too much playing around over here.



So lovely! Your blog is always such a beautiful, colorful place to visit. :)
