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,
What fun colorful sewing projects! Today while online I found something. A pattern and I thought of you. There are times while out shopping or when I see something I often say to myself "Oh Lucy would love this". Though we have never met your warmth, sharing,and care enough to comment on things we say, makes me feel quite connected to you and your world in England, miles away. I know it has been quite sometime since you have worked this pattern, but it was the pattern that had me first find you and Attic24. The Hexagon. Online today I found another way to put them together. So I thought I would share the link and it's free pattern. Happy Hooking Lucy if you choose to make this or another project. Maybe it will inspire you on some new found project. Sending you love & Sunshine from FL Donna



Lucy, you're an inspiration. My little workroom is easily accessible but I still find excuses not to make anything when my toddler's asleep - y'know, hoovering, dishes etc. etc. etc. get in the way. I'm just going to get stuck in and leave the housework unattended for a bit... love your creations!


Wonderful job Lucy! Zippers still scare me, but you give me faith! Thanks for sharing :)


Hello! I have that first bit of fabric too :)
Here's something I saw on Pinterest that may be of use to you regarding zipper fear:


I really like reading your blog full of happy colourful family life and crafting!


Your fabric collection is so lovely, and I'm excited to see what you are making! Good luck finding windows!


I can't wait to see it! I LOVE to see the things you make, it gets me going on my own stuff (when I have a window or two :-)


I recently found your blog while searching for crocheting projects. Love your blog!! Your pictures are beautiful and I love how colorful everything is. Thank you for sharing it all with us!!

Ooo-la-la! Can't wait to see what you are stitching up with those yumm-o fab-fabrics!! You are an inspiration to me as to all you get done...and with such a loving heart. I don't comment very much but do not miss a episode of your wonderful blog...Thank you.


You describe perfectly how I feel at the moment, exhilarated and frustrated.


Gloroious fabrics Lucy! have fun making , sure it will be lovely whatever it is

I have all of those fabrics - weird moment seeing them on screen as just playing with them in real life! x

What a bright spot in my day when you snatch moments to share with us too! Can't wait for the reveal! Always inspirational and happy.... Thanks for that. :D


Mummy's need playtime too, looking forward to seeing your creation.


A caravan cushion is my guess. Could you imagine cutains to match! That would brighten up a rainy day.


You're so good at seizing the moment! If ever I do that, it's so frantic that I end up not enjoying a minute of it!


Crafting is much easier when you have a dedicated space for said craft and it is organized to function well.

I'd love to do some sewing, but have no place to set up permanently at present. When things change I will have a place to leave my machine out and at the ready.

Good for you for not allowing the obstacles to prevent you from crafting. When there is a will there is almost always a way.

And who knows?...just maybe someday you will have a wonderful space to do it all, have it all. Believe in the possibilities.


It is looking good already! I remeber the frantic activity when the window opens- amazing how much you can get done in a focussed half hour! We hd a floor put in our loft so i could leave my projects out up there, but we got a dog and now I don't like to leave him alone downstairs so I'm back to sewing on the dining table and having to clear it away every time they come home from school:S


Ahh, dear Lucy,

As a mother of three with a toddler I understand your 'window of opportunity' feeling. They are always welcomed with open arms, often come at unexpected moments, and, - this is the downside - you never know how long exactly they may last!

Hurray to your makeshift sewing table! The fabrics are indeed delicious.


Looking forward to seeing what your stitchy bit of happiness becomes! :) I know about windows... I just need to take a leaf out of your book more often and make the most of them!
Happy stitching! :)


Your stash of fabrics is absolutely delicious!


Eck....zips, something I stay away from but I know you can conquer them!! Can't wait to see the finished result!


How weird, you and I have very similar callings. I too have a pulling towards fabric at the moment, I really, really want to create a cathedral windrow pincushion, inspiration from here http://www.etsy.com/listing/91727428/happy-little-pin-cushion-cathedral this little cushion makes by heart skip, skip, skip a beat. However I am a bridal jewellery design and maker and since I had this pulling I have been inundated with orders. I cherish every order but cannot wait for a couple of baby free, tiara free hours to make a pretty little pin cushion. Can't wait to see your finished article, I'm guessing scatter cushion, am I right, am I, take care.


Ooooohhhh so beautiful. Know exactly what you mean about having to grab little windows of opportunity. It's very annoying when you can see one opening ahead of you then something else fills it. I find myself dreaming of whatever I'm doing in between the little windows and longing to reach the next one! It works though. With enough little windows you have a finished project :D


Haha, I know that feeling. Yesterday I was trying to make some poppies for a bag, I managed to create a window by promising to make a blanket for my son's toy out of the left over fabric. Can't wait to see your finished article. Don't worry zips are fine. One hint I learnt very quickly is that lining covers a multitude of zip sins when you place the zip between the lining and the outside fabric!
