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

Absolutely gorgeous. I love it. Yes please, please write a tutorial for the pattern. It looks so pretty next to your new hooky basket.


Ahhhh Lucy, you are a star! Love that little trim and of course we'd love another little pattern coming from you.
Such a nice basket you have, better not stuff it in hide away places again, too pretty. Keep your lovely posts coming, always a joy too read

Ps. I think we all like the shelves just the way they are, at least we can keep our own nicely cluttered without feeling too bad.


Oooo I likey!

ah Lucy that's beautiful, and not silly at all! I laughed out loud at your "tealight in a peanut butter jar" description! I love my candles so would love a pattern for this :-)

Ooh Lucy, that's spooky. About an hour ago I was looking at crochet books, because I saw 'Cute and Easy Crochet' in my new BookPeople catalogue. So I looked on your blog at 'books' to check if it was the one with the Babushkas and got a bit side-tracked looking at the Japanese book and seeing if it was on Amazon.... 15 minutes later your post appeared. Spooky....


Yes! Too cute/pretty, just love it!! Also love seeing your clutter on your shelves- it's always refreshing to know "I'm not the only one", heehee!


It's lovely and I like the way the candle light shines through it x


Yes, please on the pattern!!!! I spotted a picture of a blanket in a mag, that I ripped out and thought I could figure out how to make -- thanks to you! And thank you for not hiding the big messy bits! I am trying to declutter our house, and it is good to know that I am not alone in having made some progress, but having something that keeps reminding me of how much I still need to do! Lovely pictures as usual! Enjoy your bedtime hooky!


Haha! That's lovely! The pattern would be great! You have so much patience!I think I need a basket to carry my projects around in. Like your idea of doing a little bit here and there.
Those Japanese books are lovely. I get a gorgeous magazine here (France) called Marie Claire Idées (have you seen it? Lots fo different beautiful crafty ideas with instructions, too) and this month there have been quite a few Japanese designs - sewing, crochet etc - really inspiring.
I liked your recent post about loving your house a bit by giving it a polish and some care. I have resolved to do the same - even in the midst of building work and grumpy husbands!
Thanks again for a lovely cheery post! xx

I LOVE your shelves! Same as Michelle above here. Life's too short to worry about it.

Really like your basket which has given me the idea I have a basket with some lavender stems in. Find another home for them and, bob's your uncle, make a lining and have a hooky basket. (or knitting).

I have made a hanger with trim at the bottom, to give to a neighbour at Christmas, just a little token and she might appreciate the time gone into it.


love the trim. love the shelves. love the yorkshire RR poster.


Pattern, PLEASE!


Oooohhh! So lovely. And I am re-reminded about how much I love those Japanese crochet books--now I know what to ask Santa to buy me! :)


That is SOOO pretty. You really are very clever and such an inspiration. Thank you for the colour and the joy that you spread. Keep up the good work.


That's just so pretty! And just in time for my current desire to crochet coathanger covers! Have been hovering at your site since early this year, when a very kind woman taught me to crochet, but this is the first time I've left a comment! Would just love a tutorial, and thank you so much for all the ones you've already written.

Dear Lucy you should see the clutter on my landing! It is slowly getting cleared. A pattern for the crochet trim would be just right. Thanks.xx


Hi Lucy,
That is so lovely and a pattern/tutorial would be brill. I`m busy atm knitting christmas decorations for a friend who is organising a christmas fair, phew my needles have sparks coming off them, lol!Take care
Love Carole from Rossendale xxxx


Dear Lucy, I love it the colours are soooo pretty, please put a tutorial on as I would love to have a go. xx


Oh... You always make me laugh. Thanks.

Hugs from the Bronx. :)

Just fabulous...a pattern would be the bees knees!.... :~))

I love your hooky trim. You know, you could make it longer and trim a shelf edge with it. Would really make a shelf pop, wouldn't it?
Lucy, I love your colorful eye!


Basket case!

Just kidding :p

I had not realised that you had lost your basket. Seriously. I mean, you haven't had it in aaaany photos for ages but I really didn't know you'd lost it. That's a pretty sizable thing to lose, I am even slightly envious of your eaves-storage as I look around my room right now and see all my crap stacked up. (It's ok though cos my other house is tidy, ho ho.)

Major jealous of your books too, I have long been lusting after them.

See you soon xxxxx


Love it! A pattern would be fabulous :D


That book shelf has soooo much personality! To line up all the books nice & tidy would just look....boring. Your decorating touch is 'somewhere over the rainbow'!! Waiting for next tutorial.....chop! chop!
