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

Oh you all look nice and cosy. I really love reading all about you and your adventures. Thank you


Your weather sounds like ours in NW PA, USA. It's been unseasonably warm, but gloomy and wet. It gets dark here around 5:30 and I feel like I should be putting on my PJ's...LOL

I LOVE the Wellies!! I need a pair for this coming Spring so I'll have to do some internet shopping over the winter...what a shame, huh??

Can't honestly think of anything for the Festive pennants. I have YULETIDE stuck in my head :)


Thank goodness for your blog on days like this when it perks me right up. You have consistently been teaching me to enjoy the little things as often I pass them up worrying about the big stuff....then missing everything!! I'm also embarking on a ripple blanket. My first project ever and oh how soothing it is at night after the kids are tucked in bed to sit and crochet. As for your bunting I like Joy<3Love or Happiness or Happy Love. It's hard to get festive in Los Angeles when it's 75 degrees out but I'm trying!! -Jaymie

I love the new wellies.. I thought I had seen the somewhere and then it all clicked into place when you said next! I saw them when I was in the buying a gift for a friends new baby.
I know what you mean about the low light levels... it can make you feel quite gloomy..

Thank you so much for cheering me up. I was feeling a bit jaded until I encountered your beautiful colourfest. I always get the serious wanties when I see your lovely things, but that Swatch - I really do NEED one! I'm also going to tie up my floppy hyacinths with ribbon. The felt looks glorious too, and the wellies of course. I'd also go along with 'Yuletide' and can't wait to try out my novice crochet skills on some holly leaves. Thanks again, for the pleasure and inspiration. You really should write a book - I'd buy it like a shot.


I thing I really really LOVE about your blog is all the amazing colourful stuff you show us! So lovely on these horrible grey days!


I was hoping you'd posted a new glimpse into your days:) Thanks for sharing... Your festive bunting reminded me of seaside houses, waiting to have windows and doors stitched on, so they can happily hang side by side... as for your festive wording... how about Emanuel (as in "God with us", which is, as far as I can see, the whole actual point of Christmas)?

Crap...No matter how hard I try A24...I can never be the first commenter.....Oh well I like the scarf especially...Yum

Lovely boots, lovely watch, in fact everything's lovely..


Knitted stripes on a wellie? How perfect is that?! I laughed when you mentioned the next kids footwear, I do that too and have several pairs of shoes from their kids range. Actually I'll admit that when I worked for monsoon I bought the odd piece of girls clothing. In my defence, I'm short and I was (at the time) really slim so I could fit into it! I did get a bit embarrassed though when mums on the school run asked me where I got bits from!!!!!!

Ooooohhhhhhh spots too. I got a couple of pairs of tights from white stuff the other week. One with spots and the other with ditsy flowers. I felt okay about the indulgence though as it was birthday pennies. But it's nice to get things to perk you up, especially to combat the dull, grey days we are having.

I tried making holly and berries a couple of nights ago but had the opposite problem. The berries I could do okay but the holly kept turning out REALLY wonky! So I gave up and did mistletoe instead!

Well Lucy, I hope the weather improves, but your new brights will sure make your days colourful!

Much love

One time my husband surprised me with a very colorful "Swatch". It had a sort of middle eastern pattern on it. I LOVED it! Now I always look for colorful reading glasses. :)


I'm loving this post Lucy.......so cozy and colourful. Your pennants look great , can't wait to see the finished project. I bought some red beads last week in anticipation of your holly pattern :0)

How 'bout "HO HO HO"?

Love your site! I'm hyperventilating trying to get a baby afghan done so I can start my snake!! NOT....ENOUGH....TIME!!


I've been knitting stripey dishcloths, just thinking how lovely it would be to sit and knit stripey dishcloths in stripey wellies.........random late night musings!

Very cosy, pretty post. x


BELIEVE on your pennants! In fact, I like that well enough to put on my to make list for next year! Definitely toooooooooooooooooo late for this year!!!! Lovin' the colors as always!


Wellytastic! Goodness me, they are the most fab wellies I have ever seen, I was Bly saying to DH earlier this week that I need to find some for the predicted bad weather Mr Weatherman said we will get next month. Lucy you have made me very happy and i hope to be sporting a pair of those knitted beauties soon myself. Thank you x


Well now Lucy I just bought some dotty rainboots and I just posted them on my blog. Tis the season huh? We've had lots of rainy weather. BTW-I do like your wellies, and I should just say, that my first choice of boots would have matched that scarf EXACTLY!

Now get those shelves cleaned off....one day at a time girl. If you would have started it when I said to a few weeks back, you woulda been done by now!

Nine letter word? How about BLESSINGS?


I love your wellygogs! You would like mine I have bright spotty ones! I will have to show them off on my blog. We will all do the rounds of welly sharing on our blogs now! I will have to rush out for hyacinths too. I may plant the amaryllis bulb tomorrow, when I am on strike! :) x

Hi Lucy.. I like the word "Christmas".. it's just a wonderful word. I like your bunting project, can't wait to see it done. I hope you pop over to my blog and see my new holiday "decor".. :-) I also want to get a hyacinth. I have my Snake plant in bloom.. have you ever seen that?

... all nice. I love swatch, I woud not wear anything else. Good choice. My son has something similar in boysh design.


I've been pining for a pair of jazzy gumboots for ages, but I can never find a pair that is "just right"! But I think you've managed to find all the ones destined for me! If you had asked my little ones for festive words (and only one of them would really understand) I'm sure the answer would be "chocolate". I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with that felt. I have a felt toucan toy that I have had since I was a child and sadly it is now falling apart. I don't think it is repairable, but I have plans to make another one. But my sewing skills are sadly lacking. I'm sure I'll get there eventually.

Hi Lucy,
Shocking school run weather here in Teesside too. It was a wellies moment for me. And waterproof trousers. And raincoat.
Thanks for cheering up my day. I love your blog, I've raved about it to everyone with the slightest passing interest. It's restarted my chrocheting habit. I've also been inspired to join blog world myself. Keep up the good work, looking forward to the holly.

Aren't dotty spots the BEST??? On everything and anything!
It may be gloomy outside, but you color your world so well on the inside! Love to peek!
