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

So stunned to suddenly see you in the magazine!! The article was beautifully done and I loved to read your post today, so colorful and thoughtful as always! Lucy, the best best of luck for all that you do with your creativity in the future:)


Hi Lucy, Yes the link works, Hooray! Really enjoyed reading your article and loved all the happy crocheted pieces you included. Thanks sharing a little bit about yourself. If you every get round to that book it will certainly be a success. Ali x


That was a lovely interview :) You truly have been a colorful inspiration to me. It is always a joy to come visit your blog. It is very welcoming:)
By the way I also love the sea, but hate to swim in it. I have been bitten, stabbed, or stung to many times by sea creatures. SO I prefer to absorbe its beauty from the shoreline.


Congratulations Lucy on the interview! Also for sharing the whole thing with us.
I can`t swim and although I love the seaside I stay away from the water :)


Thank you for sharing your story. I have flowed your posts for the past two years and learned to crochet during this time. I love your colourful creativity.


congratulation!!!! i'm deeply impressed! and a bit proud to know you! :D but in your wonderful pictures i miss your beautiful flower, which hangs on your wall, you know, the one with this heart hanging on its bottom! <3 i hope you'll have many ideas for colourful projects in future, you brighten up our days with them! :D

How exciting!


Congratulations! I loved both versions of the interview, but your long answers were a real joy to read. Thank you for sharing your story. You're an inspiration to me as a mother, wife, homemaker and crafter.


Congratulations! It was more than deserved. And the link does work, but it was more fun reading the longer version that you wrote.

You mentioned writing a book, which seems like a natural next step. Please do. It would be a treasure.


This is crazy wonderful! You must be so excited. I'm so impresses.

Congratulations to you, Lucy - you deserve to be in a magazine!


Wow, we'll done, some time ago you had a time sensitive assignment to do, I was guessing at the time it could be a magazine article,I will have to check my news agents, it looks great.

Sophia Roberts

Very well done! About time too. You already bring a LOT of pleasure to a lot of people and now there will be even more logging in every day. Yeehaw :)


Oh wow! I nearly bought that today - it's a definite for when I go into town tomorrow!

This is a wonderful post! So much colour! And are those blankets all yours?

I have a confession to make. I've just made a dangly bird thing, and I must have got the inspiration from your birds there - folded over circles with wings and beaks. Credit goes to you!

High time I say! Congrats and looking forward to that BOOK!Thanks for the lovely post and trip down your memory lane.Have a happy hooky weekend!


Such a pleasure reading your questions and answers....so many of which I can relate to. I love reading your blog....you are such an inspiration. I hope your book dream becomes a reality one day. I so like your style.


Hi Lucy
PDF is working just fine. I am a big big fan of your blog and you taught me how to crochet. I will never be able to thanks you enough. I've even got my own little blog up and running now x


Wow, gorgeous photos and a very lovely article (of course the longer version is far better)! I attempted to crochet on the beach at Sidmouth with the in-laws today but it was too windy and everything kept blowing away. Gave up and had an ice cream instead - I did think about you though. Hope you are safe from all the flooding this weekend.

Well done, what a wonderful article! You have inspired me to blog about my own crochet and craft work, I'd be happy to have half the success you have had with this wonderful blog!

I'm excited about the scarf/necklace with tiny leaves and flowers, I can't wait to see it. X


I sure wish I would have read this a few days ago. I have a very colorful granny stitch blanket with white edging waiting to be undone. I totally agree with you. I loved looking at all your projects and it made me want to make every single one of them! :)
