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

You are so skilful, Lucy! I like your blog. It´s full of inspiration.


stunningly beautiful work on all parts. How lovely for you both xxx


Wow, what a brilliant idea! I LOVE that necklace with the key on it - I'm definitely going to have a nosey around her website, it's just the kind of jewellery I like. The one she made for you looks gorgeous on you by the way, it really suits you. Have a lovely time in Dorset.

You BOTH won in that exchange! The bag is GORGEOUS, the necklace is GORGEOUS! I'll have to check out her site.
Have a lovely week. I hope all your days are full of sunshine and joy.

I loved reading this! I too have been a lucky lady this week with two parcels. It is such a personal way of connecting with other bloggers! Your bag is also beautiful! I too prefer the circles for this bag. Sophistication!

Have a fab holiday Lucy!

Ooh what a fabulous swap. The bag you made is absolutely gorgeous Lucy and the necklace you received is stunning. Reminds me of beach combing as a child!
Have a lovely holiday! We are off to Dorset in September, can't wait!

What a joyful story of creative make-y-ness! Your artwork (your bag!) is gorgeous down to the last detail, Lucy! The sea glass necklace is divine! Thank you for sharing! You're such a good writer, so generous and inviting with your life. Have a lovely time by the sea. I am going to the sea tomorrow and I shall hunt for sea glass and agates. I can almost smell it now!


What a wonderful swap. Your bag is beautiful and the necklace is beautiful. I'm sure the necklace will make your beach walk even more special. Have a lovely week. Ali x


The necklace is so beautiful! I'm very impressed and will check out the blog immediately.
Have a lovely time beside the seaside, beside the sea xxx


A perfect swap! I think you would both be very very happy with what you made for each other.

Enjoy your holiday


Hi Lucy, what a nice story :-) Your enthusiasm is heartwarming. Swaps are fun! Greetings, Janine

The bag is beautiful-your color choices sing to me, Lucy.


You have such an eye for color! This bag is wonderful, down to the last detail. And so is your necklace. Blog friends are nice to have:)


Of course the necklace is quite stunning - I do love it but your bag is just the BEST!
If only you were to sell some bags just like that - you would be able to take many more trips to Dorset!

Breathtaking! And your gift and hers complement each other so perfectly; I can almost smell the salt air!


Beautiful work by you both :0)


Lucy, you are very creative! Whenever you invent new things that inspire us! Until now I had not written any comment to your blog, I do not know why, computer problems ... I want to tell you that you follow for some time. I made a granny blanket stripe after reading your blog. In my blog http://www.myworldofwool.com/ that is more successful! Thank you for sharing with us your stuff. Thanks to you I've a passion for crocheting. I can only say thank you ... thanks ... thanks ... I'm very happy to have found you!


Have a lovely time in Dorset- threw a pebble for you- well, two- one at Charmouth one in the river at Bridders- it reached the sea rather faster than it otherwise would have as it was just 48 hours before the flood!
Bag and necklace- gorgeous!

There are lots of blogs I read sometimes but only two that I read every day. One of them is yours. Thank you for bringing a bit of sunshine into my days.

P.S. The bag is gorgeous.


Lucy, all your posts are wonderful. But this one? Well it is simply a gem amongst gems. What a wonderful story of friendship and creativity. It made tears come to my eyes as you worked with such care to make the perfect bag for Emma and then when you opened your gift and out came a necklace that was so stunningly perfect for you.
A moment in life for you both to treasure. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Hope you have a really lovely time in Dorset and that the sun shines every day.

What a lovely idea, and what gorgeous things you both made to swap. I'm sure you'll both have lovely happy times wearing/using the things you so thoughtfully created.


I totally enjoyed reading this. The bag, necklace and earrings are just beautiful. :-)
What fun!
Have a great weekend!
