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

This looks great! I was a bit surprised to see you working a WHITE granny square - but it is lovely, and will look great in colour. :)

The bag is also very, very nice! I hope you have a great day.

Julia :)


Thanks for the finishing the flower help. I'll be trying it later.
Your lovely colourful projects are really inspiring and I've enjoyed the flower hooking. I will try some more (sometime) but I think I'm more of a sewing machine and card-making kind of gal.
Will continue to keep up with goings on in the Attic though.

Wow you have been so busy! I love the grey squares.


The project bag is really lovely! I live in hope of being able to sew well enough to make something like that one day! I'm looking forward to seeing the wreath! A May Rose wreath is a lovely idea!

Irene Porter

Thanks for another intereting post? Such a good way to insert a zip in a bag. I do like your references to other web sites, I usually get sent on a little journey when I read your blog and the colours always cheer me.


Those are all lovely squares, I especially love the butterfly garden one! I'm glad you can now do zippers without bad language. Right now I am trying to sew princess seams and am having the same problem;)

Ooooh, happy days! I must check out those squares. I wanted something like that as inspiration for the cardigan I am trying to make. Never thought to search for 'afghan squares'. You learn something every day. Bring on the sunshine.


All good and lovely stuff! Excellent zip inserting skills. I am terrified of doing zips.


Oh Love the new look squares, very different & am also liking big time the cute colorful wreath

Lovely, lovely ... I just want to tell you how much you inspire me! I've had some free time the last few days and I've spent much of it (s)trolling through your beautiful archives. Thank you so much! :-)


Zippered doo dah, you did good, the project bag is beautiful.

I'm amazed that you get so much done Lucy, you must work very hard with home and little children to look after too!

Thank you so much for sharing your work and latest finds with us, it's always lovely to see.

I thought that hand was too little to be mum's hand! X

Have fun!


Thanks for the chat. It never grows old. Good job on your zipper bag!

Fleur Cotton

It's lovely to make something that's so useful when you are creating all your other projects - well done your project bag is great!

Really looking forward to seeing what you do with the polystyrene garland...knowing you it will be beautiful whatever.

Have a lovely sunny week.

Gorgeous project bag! I have tried and failed to insert zips many times but you've inspired me to have another go. x

I love the granny square! It's terribly elegant isn't it? I can't wait to see how it goes...
I'm very impressed with your zip on your project bag - I've not seen that tutorial before. I usually follow Flossie Teacake's zipper pouch tutorial for a similar top. I've actually got a little tutorial for a lovely project bag too - a box bag. It's on my blog on the tutorials page. I love my box bags - I've got a bunch of different sizes :)


What a lovely bag Lucy such pretty fabric and well done on the perfect zip insertion, I still have great problems with zips. I like the white squares too but maybe a little too lacy for a blanket for my taste but pretty nevertheless. Have you tried one crochet day at a time http://myblueangels.blogspot.co.uk/ there are some beautiful squares on there. :)

Hi Lucy! For a minute I thought I might be at Attic 25 when I saw all those light gray crocheted squares. Hmmmmm. Then I saw the stripey start to the wreath and felt much better :) Love the project bag and that zipper is perfect!! xoxo Debbie


Really lovely to see all the colours. I loved the wreaths. I am totally trying out the roses and they are coming along nicely.
I'm already trying them out on hats, bags and other things. Thanks for sharing your pattern!



Hi Lucy, what timing I'd just made myself a cuppa tea, went to Attic24 and what do I find, you are in for a chat - what a treat I must say to sit down and catch up. I just love the project bag it looks so professional, also love the picture of the sun kissing the roof tops. Thank you! Simone


that block looks like delicate wrought iron

I'd love to work it up in black for some reason

Sue Webber

Oh you have just given me a marvellous idea! I have balls, BIG balls.....oh do get your mond out of the gutter...big Polystyrene balls! Mmmm! Oh I am never going to finish my UFOs! Sigh! ♥


I really like the bag, I want to go to a class to relearn how to sew. I'm v envious of your skill. :-)


The soft grey is amazing - so beautiful! Can't wait to see the wreath in its full glory!
