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

Yay i`m the first to post a comment!! I was checking a blog or two and up came your post. Connievan is looking lovely, well done.
Also i`m still rose obsessed,lol!
Have a fab Jubilee weekend.
Love Carole from Rossendale xxx


Wow, how fun to be able to 'play house' like that. Love the curtains, you certainly have way more patience than me to be stitching them by hand!

Fleur Cotton

Oh Lucy ... Connievan is such an exciting project! If you haven't used up all your stickers I'm sure you culd stick them on some of the woodwork inside.

Your cushions just look perfect ... and your curtains are going to be brill : )

Oh what fabulous days out you're going to have in her!

Have a wonderful jubilee weekend, with lots of hooky time.

I wish you were nearer - we could spend all day playing houses with Connievan and Bertie :)

My plan is to do the curtains like yours - new fabric over the existing plain but functional curtains.

However this year he will be lucky to get 2 blankets and maybe a couple of cushions - its a long term thing!!

We are hoping to take Bertie on his first road trip soon - just a couple of night before his big adventure to Yorkshire this summer :)


It's going to look wonderful when it's finished. I love the cushions and blankets. You probably already do this but a big bowl with a load of salt in absorbs any moisture in the van overwinter. Happy camping!


Love the pillows, the curtains and Connievan! I wish I had one to play and decorate too. I love how you combine colors and patterns. I also love that flower pin cushion. Did you make it? I would love to know how to create one for myself.

Ohhhh, Little Grey Rabbit! I loved those books! And that cutlery! Connievan is looking great, the cushions look beautiful, and those curtains are going to be lovely too. :-)


Beautiful! I love the pillows and the flowers outside the door. Good luck with the curtains. It's a lot of work, but I know you will love it once it's finished. Thanks for posting your Pinterest page. I think we have similar color loves, so I'm excited to get inspiration from your boards!


Oh, you are so very clever, Lucy! All the way around, upside down and backwards too! :)Wonderful color and brightness for your Connievan ~ we all benefit from an occassional facelift, don't we? Very clever work with the gingham ~ you are really showing your sewing skills these day! Happy weekending, sewing and crafting!

Melissa P

It's coming together so beautifully! Such a happy place with all the colors and textures. Another summer of Connievan memories awaits you all.

Kim Watson

Oh Lucy!
You really are a dear. I love the picture, and simply adore the curtains! My family thinks I'm a bit crazy, but I have always had a soft spot for gingham (esp blue). Have fun and enjoy yourself you clever, crafty thing!

hugs from Kim and the Bumper!


Connievan looks so great, the cushions are bright and matching very well with the blankets.
Reading your post brought me 20 years back, when my children were young and I bought a little caravan. We spend so many happy summers and other holidays there. Sometimes my boys still talk about it.
We sure created many happy memories!!
I did prettify it too, with bright coloured curtains and blankets.
Wish you many happy days!


Lucy I am loving Connivan's outside stickers. I say cover the whole van with them! The inside is looking gorgeous too. Those curtains are going to be fab. You are very patient to stitch the panels over the old curtains. I remember years ago a friend of an ex asked me to make new curtains for her parents static caravan and they wanted them in the thickest thickest velvet. The were a flippin nightmare to sew! I am still feeling very jealous of your caravan tales. Our neighbours have a lovely old caravan and it is parked over the fence from our back door. I can just see the top of it when I am on our steps as they are a little lower than us an I feel twinges of envy whenever I see it. I think they're off in it next week lucky things. Anyway, I continue to enjoy reading about your lovely connivan until I'm lucky enough to have my own. Enjoy your time in her next week.

Love the flower decals you added to Connie- My hubby would have been raising his eyes at me too!

Deco Cat

I dream of owning my own caravan, maybe one day!


Have you tried sewing the curtains with a quilting foot on your machine? This should go through the thickness, and save your fingers.
Love those cushions - feeling very inspired to do something like those.

Looking fab Lucy - your comments about J raising an eyebrow make me smile as my other half, who's also a J, is always raising an eyebrow at my antics!!! Oh, and your post about gingham makes me think that you should pop over to have a look at Tilly and the Buttons most recent skirt (link here http://www.tillyandthebuttons.com/2012/05/picnic-blanket-skirt.html) which is also made out of gingham. I can just imagine you wearing a gingham skirt whilst sorting out your morning cuppa in Connievan :) Hope you have a fabulous Jubilee weekend x


Ah Lucy I'm a little bit jealous of your caravan. We had a beautiful vintage Sprite until a couple of years ago, spent many, many happy times in it but never managed to prettify it, that was something we were building up to. Unfortunately ill health forced us to reconsider our holiday arrangements and caravanning is no longer a possibility for us so I shall never have the joy of my own connievan. Luckily I shall enjoy yours and it looks very much like mine looked in my minds eye! All colourful and cosy and YES i would have had stickers on the outside too!


I think I have caravan envy!.
The pillows look wonderful and the inside of the caravan reminds me of many a holiday when I was younger and lived in the UK.
I think that you are creating a lovely haven away from today's crazy world.
Enjoy your adventures!.

What a cute pincushion you have!!


That is a fab pincushion- you are clearly having a lovely time AND you have mod-podge- great stuff mod-podge.Go girl!

debbie @ happy little cottage

The curtains are so adorable and will be perfect with all the crocheted Connievan accessories!! I have to admit that I swooned over that pincushion!! Happy weekend Lucy!


Ooooh, it's going to look so good Lucy. I can't wait to see the caravan transformation as it happens! I love the look of the curtains, simply stunning I bet they're look glorious once they are (eventually!) all done. Keep up the good work my dear, Connievan holidays this year will be that little sweeter I reckon :)

un saluto
