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

Hi Lucy

Can you tell us more about the "embroidery thread" you are using?
Weight? thickness? twist??

I'm guessing its noto standard DMC / Anchor skeins so am intrigued to experiment with finer threads than dk cotton rico.......


These may take over my house they are soooo cute! I also wanted to say thank you for the easy curry recipe you posted. I have never made a curry before but I made this as it was quick and easy and absolutely delicious. Plus my kids loved it which is really saying something. Thank you Lucy for inspiring my kitchen as well as my crochet!

LOVE the crochet tin covers, I am now covering every available container with Lucy type creations! I want to make some more key ring fobs that you did last year sometime, but have lost the pattern, can you send me a link to the tutorial/pattern please?


So cute :)


Hi Lucy,
I had a very tiring day, especially since I did not sleep so well last night. But, not wanting to go to bed just yet, I typed "crochet" in the Google bar and stumbled, for the first time, to your blog. I've found three of my loves - crochet, color, and dahlias! Thank you for helping me end my day in a joyful place. I'll be back soon.


Lucy, is it not grand to catch this sort of energy towards the end of January? Well, you've caught it beautifully, and I hope that you will be able to keep on this lovely creative tour.

I keep responding to more daylight every day.

How cute!!! Love love love it!


Whenever I take a peek at your beautiful blog my wish and to do lists just grow and grow. Love your colour and energy Lucy. Take care, Lyn x


I wonder if you had thought of wearing it as a necklace?
To me it looks like it could be the most *adorable* little necklace in the world :)

Really like the Greedy for Colour blog, ty for the link. I'm new to craft blogging and never knew how abundant a selection there were online. I've been overwhelmed a bit with the creativity out there. Sometimes I limit how much I look because it can be faintly disheartening....so many people are way cleverer than I am, I'm a crochet newbie!

Like the tiny bunting! :-)


Gorgeous! I particularly like the idea of it adorning a cream lampshade. Love the twigs though, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the next lot you make! X


SILLY QUESTION - sorry I'm probably being dim but is it the type of embroidery thread where you normaly pull out a strand at a time to use or is the tapestry wool type embroidery thread. It looks so full in the photos I can't tell - see told you it was a silly question!
btw - love all your ideas and help for those of us who are learning. Thank you so much x

Lucy I think I must have some. Thank you for sharing all your lovely things with us. I know if I could crochet, I'd have some bunting on the hook right this second.


That's all very well for you Lucy - now I've got to go and grab the 2,5mm hook and embroidery threads immediately too!! Thanks for all the beautiful things you bring to my attention!!!!!!


I have been following your wonderful colourful blog for about a year but have never ventured into commenting before. I can't tell you how inspirational you have been and what a happy rush of creativity has come into my home as a result. I am so glad that creative ideas are still pouring out and can't wait for the next! Your tins from the other day have me hooked (sorry for the pun!) but then there's something about bunting isn't there? Decisions, decisions!

Thank you both for your inspiration and your superb tutorials which make even tricksy hooky so manageable.

Rainbow blessings to you and yours, Elizabeth

So cute!!!I see Christmas tree garlin!I like the idea of using them on lamp shades.Something must be in the air with mini's I've just finished a mini flower wreath to hang on cabinet knobs,with many more to make.Now mini bunting!Speaking of tins,I saw a Pin that sparked an idea for them.It was in cloth but I thought it'd be great for the crochet tins.Use a taller tin and add pockets around outside.Be cute for storing nail polish and file etc.or crochet hooks and such.Insipration never ending! Have a great one.


Hello. You don't know me but I follow your blog and absolutely love it. It is always so colourful and homely. Oh how I wish I could crochet, I have tried but to no avail. I quilt, cross stitch and various other crafts but just can't get the knack of the hook and yarn. I look forward to your next post.


That is utterly adorable! Looking around my house, I can see a hundred places that could use some mini bunting. Must get started right away! :)


It is great the way one blog leads you to another and another and such surprises and inspiration.Wonderful.

So so cute.


So lovely again!


These are beautiful Lucy! You seem to be in a creative flow at the moment - I am loving all the tutorials - I just wish I could keep up with you. I'm still working on my ripple blanket! (Having a little trouble with accuracy, so might have to employ some stich markers), but I'm having such fun! Thank you for the little ray of colour you bring to my lunchbreak! xx


Oh good grief I can't keep up. I haven't even eaten my tuna yet. I've been looking for inspiration for a lampshade edging, I think this may well be it. Love it :-D


Wowzers ... just Loving this Lucy ... Make more make more hehe..
Have a great day :)
