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

I was reading this in my office in Chicago, where it's gone dark and snowy already and it's only 4:11pm in the afternoon. Looking at all the colors and the liveliness around your home, I actually said out loud, "I wish I could go to your house one day." My office mate thinks I'm a lunatic!


Please do a pattern Lucy, it's beautiful. I've also been looking for crochet cuff patterns and feel this could be converted (the blue bit with perhaps red velvet ribbon would be yummy). Victoria x

Love it,love it, love it. Want to try making one a pattern please pretty please. Anne x


I was just thinking your trim would look pretty on a jar, and then I saw the next picture of it on your candle ;). Pattern Prett Please!


Love the trim on the candle.


Ooh, I want thAt trim for a few dish towels. So so gorgeous!


Wonderful idea Lucy....as usual :0)
These would be great gifts as I imagine they are quite quick to do and candles are a must at this time of year I think.

I read every post but am usually a lurker - but I just wanted to say I would love, love, love the pattern for your gorgeous, gorgeous trim, you are so clever!!

Wow, its like your trim was supposed to go around the candle! Looks great!! The trim would also look good across each of the shelves on your Shelves of Doom, what doesn't look less messy with a bit of color?? LOL We all have them, I have pics of mine on Ravelry (I'm Iesadora on there) with vampire flowers hanging along the top =D


Yes, please, I'd love the pattern...it is very sweet. Love love.


The trim is very Indian looking I think.. little gem colours... especially when the candle is lit. I have been visiting the Fly Lady thanks to your recommendation.. and yesterday I did a huge clean up of the dining room (I Know, I know it's not the right week)and afterwards lit smelly (in a nice way)candles and my daughter walked in and said, 'Wow'.. enough of a reward I think... thanks Lucy :)x


Hello Lucy!
First off I love your apron! I wish I had mula to buy those Japanese books, one day I will be able to!. I love your little trim it's so colorful as usual:) I love your post. They make me so happy!

Darling.........Its darling


Im a beginner crocheter, I dont know if I could ever pull that off but it sooo beautiful! I would love the pattern if I could do it! I think it would look so whimsical on that blanket you are working on!

PS Love the shelf in the background with the crochet banner and the heart tree and I love the light above the table too!

I'm so glad you re-discovered your basket, it's delightful and they're so useful, I'd be lost without mine. I also love your decorative piece of what-not for trimming - it's beautiful! You're so clever, you never fail to amaze me with your ideas. So that's a definite 'yes please' from me to a pattern if you have time. (Fingers crossed!)

How beautiful! Would love the pattern-just in time for the holidays to decorate the mantle with some greenery around the candles....please, please, please!

The Barefoot Crofter

So lovely - perfect for a candle holder. My bookshelves do that trick all the time. xx

Hi Lucy! I would love the pattern for your trim! It's so pretty. Also, it would be cute sewn onto clothing. I'm thinking a sweater with 3/4 length sleeves so you could sew it on the cuffs and it wouldn't get in the way. I'd love to try that!

Brianna Asaro

Love the candle holder trim! Great way to spruce up a room! And I had to laugh a bit when I saw your bookshelves in the background - you can tell you love and use all your books because nothing is put away!!! LOL. But it looks and feels so loved and homey!


I love your trim. I want to try to make some of my own trim now. And I didn't even notice the shelves of doom because I was drooling over your beautiful mantel.


Hi Lucy: Lucky you, you found the basket! I have mine too, but not so nice.
The trim is beautiful and yes, I want one of your easy pattern and tutorials, pleasssssse!!!




This is just the cutest trim ever! A new hooky pattern of this adorable trim would be fabulous! Love and hugs from California!


I'm in love! Your hooky trim is soo pretty! Your whole blog is fantastic really. I get so many lovely ideas from your blog and the frustrating thing is that I don't have enough time and I don't know which to try next! I've just started my first ripple cushion cover yesterday and It already looks lovely!! Thanks for the pattern, because you made it really easy :)

Lorena Sonido Retro!

jaja, Today I bought 3 baskets for my bist and pieces...
I adore your candle ornament!
Lovely as ever.


I didn't notice your shelves because I'm trying to figure out the flouncy thing hanging from the ceiling. Please do tell us about that.

Your trim is tre' cute.
