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

That was a fantastic trip!! I enjoyed every minute of it and resolved to buy more flowers for myself (but they are not as cheap here in the colder weather so I will have to be careful!) However, I do grow many of my own flowers from March/April to September. The balance is somewhere between the two--in spite of growing many of my own, it is still a great treat to buy them in all seasons for colour.
I enjoyed your colourful offering on the is cold, snowy day. Thanks!

So Pretty! Happy New Year to you and your Family!


Hello,I wish you and your family an happy new year , I am french from Marseilles and I love your blog , thanks you for your lovely creations and the beautifull pictures you share with us !!huggs


The pleasure of working at home I guess. We're off at work most of the week and when we're gone the blinds are shut so I already have a hard time to keep my green plants alive. But in summertime when we're home more often I also share your joy of having fresh flowers (even wild ones from the fields nearby).

I bought a little flowery pot plant from the supermarket today and was thinking about you when I brought it home and was searching for a pretty decorative vessel to sit it in. Alas I have nothing to compare to your delightful crocheted pineapple tin cover. A brown plate has to suffice. But I agree I think the prettiness of blooms is essential and particularly at this time of year. I would usually want to keep the tree up as long as possible, but not this year, I just want it out of the house. May be something to do with the bug riddled festive season we've had! xxx


very colourfull and beautiful I love to follow your site. Best wishes from Barcelona .



One day, sure, but you can try every year best you can, and I'm sure it would still be lovely! This post makes me wish for flowers in my own home! So vibrant!!! Xoxo, jess

A riot of colours! Just beautiful and they brighten up the dullest day! Love reading your blog. Happy New Year to you xx


A lovely colourful year in review post. Happy New Year Lucy!


What a colorful explosion that these photos carry! Love it!

I remember earlier in the year when you posted about crocheting around tin cans....that did it for me and I got right to work. I transferred the idea onto glass jars (because I have so many) and I have given a lot of them away as tea light holders for little gifts.

Thanks for the wonderful idea.

Best regards,

Lucy, one word comes to me when I read your blog, "Color!"
Love all your colorful flowers! Beautiful! Thanks for sharing! Makes me happy!
Merry 💜


ooh Lucy I love your green spotty jug! I have two red spotty ones - but that green one is gorgeous!!! I love your flowers and all the colour!


Dear Faraway Friend -- Reading your blog brings me great joy and lots of smiles. You have many gifts and I am so grateful that you share them. (Writing, creating, crafting -- is there anything you can't do?) I was noodling around on the Internet and came across a blog entry that immediately made me think of you. It is by another young mom brightening her home with bunting. When I saw the free poster download (with bunting flying in the illustration!), I decided to share it with you. http://familybees.blogspot.com/2011/05/buntings-and-banners-and-pennants-oh-my.html?m=1 Thanks so much for all the smiles -- you are a treasure! B-)

To Lucy,
Everything you do is so beautiful! The flowers are so colourful that I am going to buy some - and make crochet ones of course!


Your home is such a glorious study in color. The entire rainbow, living together happily . . . it's like your home is one huge granny stripe blanket. :o) The flowers just finish it, like a blanket's border. Lovely!!!


the flowers are just gorgeous! I hardly ever buy flowers for myself, but must do so more!

if you have a chance to comment, could you tell me about the toadstool on the bedside table? I LOVE toadstools and that one is just so cute!

Hi Lucy

Happy New Year to you. A gorgeous burst of colour for these dark damp days so thank you. Today I got the urge for pots of bursting hyacinths so will be on the hunt tommorow.

Thank you so much for greeting me with this lovely rainbow of blooms at the end of what has been a very long and dreer day.

Wishing you the happiest of New Years!

Lovely flowers! I thought of you today when I saw a Christmas tree (on pinterest I think). It was white and all of the ball ornaments were the glorious colors of your crochet work. They graduated in color from top to bottom like on a color wheel. You would love it I just know you would! You could crochet all the ornaments and that would be even better! From the USA....Trisha


Wishing you a happy flowery new year!
Still love those stripy 'cat food tin covers'! If you ever fancy swapping one for something handmade from Dorset give me a shout.

Trisha Grant

Yaay! I found the blog with the cool Christmas tree
Its called " The thing about daisies". You should check it out. Trisha
