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

LOVE the Connievan news. You inspire me so much! :-) Can't wait to see what Connievan Does Next!


I'm going to suggest a bit of Decopatch for your cupboard panels ... they do some really nice vintage pattern paper and it would cover up a bit more of the beige?? Just a thought ....


Well, I've done tea cozies, but this is just so clever...and always colorful! XOXO


Connievan is looking terrific! I really love what you did with the curtains. The whole thing looks so much fresher now. I looked at the picture of Connievan's little kitchen for a long time; I absolutely love little kitchen set-ups and I can totally picture you standing there doing your kitchen work. I'm loving all your improvements to Connievan and can't wait to see more!


Amazing what colors can do in our living spaces!!!
lovely work!!!

Connievan stories and photos are great. I love seeing the transformation. By the way, our new favorite breakfast is poached eggs on toast. Thanks for the lovely blog!


I love hearing about ConnievanI We have a pop-up tent style and I would love a Connievan type with all the fussing that goes into decorating it. Not much I can do with ours and NO bathroom either. XO

A cute little home away from home, all dolled up in Lucy fashion of course.

I love hearing The Tales From Connievan, and watching her being transformed. I've got a little bit of caravan envy, in a good way of course! :)

The cafietere cover is smiley!!! I am wondering though why the handle is not in the space you made for it? Love the cards on the walls too. I have a very modern caravan and look for bright covers to keep the upholstery clean. Two shitzu's can produce some muck! I use bright fleeces as they wash and dry in jig time, don't stretch or shrink and come cheap.


Hallo Lucy, I LOVE caravan things, so please keep on posting about them!

we spent many a year in our caravan on holiday and loved it. It was no where near as cute as yours though. You will be the prettiest van on site!


Hi Lucy,
I'm so pleased you had a good time away in connievan. I LOVE your caravan posts so keep 'em coming for me :-). I do have a bit of caravan envy but it's sooo lovely to see how you are changing it, and without spending a fortune too. Great stuff.


Im loving your connievan stories, please keep sharing! And the curtains look fab. Cheerio...


Love all the comments on connievan. We have an onsite van with fixed annexe that we use for weekends away etc. I really didn't know how to improve its appearance apart from a few rugs etc. I am crocheting my little fingers to the bone and my dear old Mum 95 says "thats nice dear" I need that one for my knees" or "oh I get so cold around my shoulders in bed" I ask you how many rugs can one little old lady use. She has three so far wonder what she will do with the one I am making now.
Great ideas Lucy given me a whole new perspective on what to do with "Veronica Van".


O Lucy I love your tales of your Connievan, she's growing more beautiful with your loveliness of colour, crochet and stitching. I certainly wish I owned one. Thanks for showing us your special talent and beauty once again, glad you had a good few days away. xxx


It is looking wonderful! For cheap fabric with nice patterns I go to primark or somewhere like that and buy quilt covers - lots of lovely fabric and not much money (quite often I have managed to get a king size set for £4 and they do some wonderful patterns!) Good luck with the rest of connievan - I can't wait to see more!


I love your Connievan posts! My parents thought I was joking when I said I'd like a caravan for my 21st, they pointed out that I don't have a car, I reasoned that that wasn't the point, I just wanted to sit in it and fill it with pretty things!!
Isn't that book good? I've just started making the spring time throw (http://alittleblonde.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/spring-project.html ), but the cafetiere cosy is next on my list as I'm a real caffeine addict.
I look forward to hearing more from Connievan soon :)


I think it's already the lovliest caravan in the world!
I recently covered some similar seating using spotty fleece fabric from Abakhan - very cheery, not too expensive and a bit more forgiving in the fitting snugly area!


I love your caravan posts! We almost got a caravan last year and I had all kind of pretty plans in mind but in the end decided it wouldn't work for us. So hearing news of your Connievan and it's transformation is the next best thing! All your work is certainly paying off, especially the curtains which look so, so good! Well done on what you've achieved so far and please do keep on posting on your progress :)
