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 like the way the message as a whole is 'love, fun and joy' when it's hung. :-)


Good job, Lucy! I'm going to steal and tweak this idea to make name pennants for my kids' doors to their rooms. Thanks for the inspiration!


Very nice! I think that would make a good birthday bunting too, just change the wording and colors. One of my sweet girls has her 16th coming up, so I better get to work!


It came out beautiful!!!

Wouldn't it be "fun and joyful" to made a Valentine theme one or one for Easter or Spring???

Hmmmm...I'll have to think about this :)

Thanks again for the inspiration...and the pattern :)


You have the best mantel for something like this! :) I think I'll make this when my friends welcome their baby daughter into the world - I'm thinking of writing her name on the bunting :)

Such an adorable decor...and oh, how I love the photo of your room with all the lovely tidbits you've created! Festivity is ALWAYS in season! It's too bad we ever feel the need to take it all down...but I guess that's what keeps it special! Adorable idea - thanks for sharing! Annette


Happy new year!
What a lovely bunting! I ♥ the way you use the colours in your work:)
I'm looking forward to your new crocheting projects:)


Perfect! Love it. x


Fabulous! Thanks for sharing this. Love the words you chose too.

As I saw the posted bits of this as you worked on it, I wasn't sure I would like it. But, after seeing the end result and how wonderful it looks on your vibrant, colorful mantle, I must say that I love it! I've got the post bookmarked so that I can use the idea. I'm thinking about something in neutral/natural tones so that I can keep it out year round.

Thanks so much for the continued inspiration!


That is gorgeous!!!!


Oh it's beautiful Lucy! Totally gorgeous, and it epitomises those words "fun" and "joy". Perfect.

Definitely going to give your tutorial a go, maybe for something else though because I don't think I can wait until next Christmas!

That is really cute. What a great idea!


Que bien lo explicas!!! Ni hace falta saber ingles :P thanks



I love this and really enjoy your colourful blog! Thanks also for the snowflake pattern-- I have made loads!


Thanks! And best wishes for fun & joy in the New Year! ;-)


Oh Lucy that is utterly gorgeous bunting!! What a clever little man to come up with such perfect words. He's obviously got his priorities the right way around! A credit to you!

If I can get my head around the pattern (as a complete novice with crochet) then I'd love to do some bunting for my little man's room (and bumps room.)

Thank you so much for sharing! I'm a long time reader, first time poster, and simply adore your blog!


Wonderful, wonderful and wonderful!!!
Your bunting is fantastic, as with every other Ta -dah! you make me want to rush off and start another project. It sits just perfectly on your mantelpiece.
Thanks so much for sharing the pattern.
I think that it would look great all year with seasonal words, or even for birthdays.
Wishing you and all your family and fun and jolly New Year x


Hi Lucy, well your photos are stunning and the colours so vibrant, after seing the bunting finished I wondered what it would look like up . Now I get to see and it looks fab !!. As we say @ school give yourself a silent round of applause.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and see you Monday .

Oooh I've been so waiting to see what the words would be. It's perfect in every way. Happety Hippety New Year. :-)


Every time I read in my blog the word Ta-dah, my heart beat faster with excitement and as a happy child I run to see the surprise that you have prepared and then wait for the right moment to start!
I made two Crochet trim but I could publish the photo on Ravelry, but it'll try again!

Fantastic and a wonderful way to honor each of the contributing members of the project. Very beautifully presented too Lucy.

Happy 2012-hard to believe it's January already.

Bonda-web?? Running stitch? Good to see the ol' embroidery magic's still there ... gorgeous as always Luce. You're SO prolific, inspirational & fun to read (I loved you "going pointy").

That does it! I'm going to make this for next Christmas. You did a wonderful job. So enjoy reading your blog.
