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

Your seasidey bag is wonderful and that necklace is absolutely beautiful! Wishing you and your family a very lovely holiday ~ hope the weather is good to you :0)xx


What an attack of the Wanties has been brought on by that bag and that necklace!
We'll look forward to seeing you wearing it at the seaside - it is soooooooo you.
Wishing a fab time to you & your family.

Without words! Wonderful!! the bag and the necklace were perfect!
Have a nice hollidays, Lucy.
Some of my English friends living in Spain are from this coast, and now they are going back England to pass this summer time. (You could know them here: http://eljardindemisecreto.blogspot.com.es/2012/07/living-in-fortuna-i.html)

See you soon!!


I do indeed know Emma, and I know she is going to make the most glorious use of your bag (and I might even ask if I can have a hold of it ;-). Both sides of the swap are utterly gorgeous. You clever people!


That was a super swap, Lucy. All the handmade items are beautiful and it was lovely that you had a custom made necklace which is exactly what you wanted. Enjoy Bridport- I think we brought the rain home to Scotland with us so hopefully you will have sunshine!


Wonderful switcheroo and I love your necklace. Also love the bag and the ribbon trim adds so much. Gorgeous! :)


oh what an amazing idea, and you both like seaside things so its a perfect match.
I really like the colours you used for the bag and the sea glass is so beautiful, what a lovely way to display it


I am so Jealous...especially of your skill in making the bag xx


a beautiful bag, a beautiful necklace and beautiful sentiments.


Wow what a brilliant experience Lucy and so lovely to share with each other. I love both the bag and the necklace.......oh and the earrings! Enjoy your strolls along the beach, no doubt looking for more tiny treasures to collect!


Thank you so much for taking the time to write this post and show us pictures! I LOVE the bag you made--those are my colors, too. :) The buttons are perfect---that one button in the middle is just splendid. I can imagine your joy when you found them.

I have already poked around Emma's shop and sent her a message about a custom order. Her jewelry is amazing!

Thanks again. What a fun way to start the day by reading your post.

Have fun at the sea!


Hi Lucy! Sorry but I'm the lucky one who won Emma's necklace - it's my favourite!
I'm so happy that you made the swap with her and got those amazing jewelleries!
Your bag is fantastic and I'm sure she adores it! I love the colours and all the sweet details you have made!
Sunny wishes from Crete! x Teje

Hi Lucy.. I read this post with interest.. I actually was one of Emma's winners! I got the adorable button necklace. I think it was brilliant the idea you came up with for bartering for your very own special necklace! I just love the colors you used in her bag and how it came out.. gorgeous! And the sea inspired items on your necklace.. oh la la! The sea glas was the topper.. I also love it. And so nice of you to send people to Emma's shop. A win-win situation for sure. Have a WONDERFUL week at the ocean with your family, I look forward to seeing the photos when you return to the attic. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Oh, I love the necklace and the bag!! I've often wondered what I could do with the sea glass I find on the beach - jewellery had never occurred to me...guess what I'll be keeping an eye out from now on?!!

Archie the wonder dog

P.S. I love the circles and buttons you added to the bag (the colours are exactly what I'd choose to make a bag in) and the special buttons are a wonderful touch!


Wow, oh wow! Everything is so gorgeous I could cry. The necklace is beautiful. It's too bad I can't wear necklaces (can't stand things around my neck). But the bag made me screech with excitement. I must try my hand at that. The sea colours were perfect. I just hope I can find buttons as beautiful as the ones you found to finish it off.


What a beautiful piece of writing.....I felt like I was with you on this adventure.
Both items made with such care and attention to detail.
An inspiration to all the crafters in the whole wide world. x

I've done a craft swap with a friend, it's lots of fun. You both swapped two beautiful crafts, you lucky ladies! Wishing you and your family lots of fun on your holiday x


wow, what a great win - win situation!
