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

Hello there Lucy, I've missed you the last few days as we've been away and my littlies don't go back to school until tomorrow. I've just looked at your Sunday pictures. Wasn't it a stunning (if cold) day. Shame today wasn't as nice as we had an teacher training day and the whole of Thorpe Perrow Arboretum almost to ourselves. I can't wait to upload my photos.
As much as I like routine, I'm not looking forward to the morning rush tomorrow...I am looking forward to seeing more of your little bunting things. What are you going to do with them?


Oh the joy of new stationery items. One of the (many) joys of being a Teacher was sticky stars.How much I loved putting stars on good work: three coloured stars= a silver star.Three silvers=a gold...when I was little I wanted to work at the Post Office because I just loved all the rubber stamps and string and paperclips that the job entailed.


Oh you lucky lady! All that time to yourself! I see you used it wisely and I can't wait to see what your floss and sticker paper turns into!!

So nice to get colourful parcels in the post, especially when we are still having these grey winter days. Thanks for sharing!


Dear Lucy,
How sweet your baby boy looks sleeping! Thank you for giving us just a peak at his angelic face! I cannot believe how the time flies and how big he is already! As for you sticker package, I ADORE THE POLKA DOTS!!! It reminds me of a mug I have. A gift I bought for myself around the holidays. Clear across the country as it sat in my hand and I contemplated buying it I thought, Lucy would love this.... All the bright spunky polka dots! Now I think of you & Attic24 whenever I use it. Keep inspiring us all Lucy with colors that make our hearts sing!
Hugs, from Sunny FL, Donna


You make it all look so easy Lucy! Your creations are fantastic as usual. I sometimes find it so hard to pick out colours that go well together but you do have a natural talent for it. I am loving those mini bunting ideas too ~ both the mini crochet and the washi tape :O)xx


Love the washi bunting! It would look great on cards, too. And great selection of thread colours, even if you were a bit rushed. Love your 'bouquet'! lol


Hi Again,
Can you please add a post & link to what pattern the blanket Little B is sleeping under? I cannot seem to remember it and my youngest & I enjoy the colorful squares piped in the red trim so very much! I remember when you made the tiny squares pillow cover and I made a few tiny squares myself that I have tucked away as a reminder for a future project. Maybe it is time for a tiny square blanket to be made....


Can't wait to see where you put this adorableness!


How do you do that with colours? It would have taken me ages and the assistance of my art teacher daughter to decide! Lovely little sticky tape thingies.. so many possibilities.. mmm...love the baby bunting :)x


Lovely Lucy! Love the colour choice - can't wait to see what you do with them. i found some Anchor soft thread in a charity shop the other day - only 4 colours, but looking forward to crocheting with it. I am resisting the washi tape urge so far.....succumbing could be dangerous! For now, I'll watch what you do! xx


Mini bunting with mini crochet roses!! SWOON!! Can't wait to see that! Gorgeous post, as always. Jo x


You are slightly mad, aren't you? In a good way. Of course.

Katie B

Ah yes indeedey... remember the delights of the Manchester Poly shop ... the mini paint rollers, the lovely papers .... & Brenda's thread cupboard?!
You did splendidly to Supermarket Sweep such a lovely combo of threads in 5 mins flat.
Love the way you laid out your sticker set like tarot cards Lucy Medium!! Bring on The Bunting.
LOL, Katie B x x

You are too cute...I open your blog daily just as you did with your envelope from Malaysia...with anticipation and excitement...thank you...Kim


You seriously waited a few weeks before tearing open a package???? My world stops right there and then when I get a package. Love the mini bunting, just too cute for words.

blessings, jilly


Aïe,aïe, aïe...Stop tempting us, will you. I don't have enough time to knit & crochet. What if I indulge myself with masking tape too... You go ahead... And tell us all about it, ok?

Derie Ward

Hello, I stumbled across your blog and find myself frequently peeking in to see what you are up to! I am like Donna above and woul love to see a pattern for the blanket your baby is sleeping under. I am quite the beginner at crochet, but I'm learning and reading all I can. Thank you so much for your inspiration all the way from Texas. :)

The bunting obsession continues!


I have some washi tape, but have never seen washi style stickers, LOVE!!!!!!

I have some sets of washi stickers I was given recently that I haven't properly had time to look at ... I must open them up and see if any of mine are like yours ... aren't they fun!


Lucy you look like you are discovering the wonders of papercrafting too! It could be a dangerous area to foray into knowing your love of pretty things!

Miss Holly
