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

I love your blog and the pom poms are perfect. Even little B's one. You mush include it within your decs. Something to treasure for ever x


I love the Pom Poms! Loving this post - such a visual treat. Thanks for the colour-fest on such a wet and dreary evening.


Pom poms were my very first introduction to crafting as a child. They just fill my heart with joy and make me smile. Thanks for cheering my day... now where did I put my pom pom maker????


how funny you posted about the pom pom maker at just the right time! last week i was struggling to make some pom poms with a cardboard cutout and nearly chopped my fingers off lol! i'm going to buy these from the american amazon. thanks for sharing!


That wreath is just too gorgeous. Off to buy a pom pom maker. Thank you lovely lady xxx


Hello Lucy
I was recently introduced to these pompom makers (from a very reliable source!) and couldn't resist giving them a try after many moons of cutting up cardboard discs.
So now I have a basket full of a wide variety of pompoms in an assortment of colours including sparkly ones made from silver yarn which came attached to a knitting magazine.
Fortunately they are a source of fascination to my granddaughter who is happy to take one home with her when she visits but I was beginning what to do with the rest!
The necklace is so very you.
I hope the weather isn't being too unkind up there.

Hi lucy primark has paper balls in red and white at £1.50 each love your post.xx


lovely pom poms and it's so great that everyone could join in. Beautiful x


Pom pom maker makes it sooo easy, amazing.
Love your necklace too.
Nice that even little b could have fun in the making of pom pom's, takes me back to when my 4 where little people ☺☺


Love the pompoms and the handy dandy maker ... also love Maartje ... she is wonderful ... your new necklace is gorgeous ... have a lovely week making more pompoms ... Bee xx


Hi Lucy.

I went to the Harrogate Knitting and stitching show on Saturday as was so excited to see you in the crowd. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

On the subject of Pom poms - take a look at this...http://www.multipom.com/



Forgot to say there are paper honeycomb Pom poms on eBay much cheaper.


These look like a fun project. I once naively agreed to teach a group of 8 and 9 year olds how to knit which became incredibly tricky, we all managed to make pompoms though which was much more satisfying.
I love Silly old suitcase blog, such lovely pictures and wonderful crafty ideas


Thanks for this post. My 7-yr-old begged me to let her buy this Pompom Monster Salon from their school bookfair last week. Glad I gave in,she's been having so much fun! It came with the maker, some yarn, googly eyes, felt teeth & the book is chock full of tips on how to "prettify" your monster! Here's the book:

Lovey necklace, by the way.


That wreath is gorgeous! x

tejeme mucho

I love the pom poms you did!!! Lucy. I'll search for the pom pom maker everywhere.
I love your crocheting. I've been reading your blog for a long time, but never commented. Thanks for all you share. Malvina (from Argentina).


I bought one! I'm thinking pom pom edged cushion cover.....


Love your Color-Fest! So fun. Thank you for posting this topic.
Pom-poms can become addicting, that is for sure. One thing the kiddies love is pom-poms on crochet winter hats. Attach 1, or 3-5 on top or even dangle them from a crochet chain on the hat's top. They love the way they swish around when they turn their little heads.
I have the pom-pom maker from Clover also and when they are laundered in the washing machine they can fall apart so, be careful.


Hi Lucy, Thank you once again for lots of lovely colour and new ideas.Something to cheer us up when its grey outside. I'll have a look at the new blogs too. Take care, Val x

Oooooo, I can see this beautiful wreath with a French Bower Bird or two and a sprinkling of triple layer flowers for extra colour!!! Mmmmm.
Love your blog, it makes my day to see all the colourful projects and lovely pictures!


Drooool! Such a gorgeous post! I'm itching to try my hand at a wreath now. And I'm in love with that necklace!


What a happy-making post! And I am glad you got a necklace that was just perfect for you. Wonderful :)

Lucy, you can make your own paper balls, in whatever size and color you'd like! You're only limited by what kinds of paper you can find.



Have fun! :-)


nice colors, they cheered me up while I was feeling sleepy in the morning...
I see that your blankets' colors don't fade away with use...I really want to make a big granny or ripple blanket!
Have a nice time preparing for Christmas, Lucy:) I am also planning so many things to be crocheted!


We made pom poms in Pumpkin Cottage this weekend. Perfect for patient little hands. So so much fun.
