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'm glad your family spoiled you! My Mums favourite flowers are tulips too, although I now feel a bit mean for only buying her one bunch!

Cara Louise

LOVE! there was a beautiful quince at the corner of the house where I grew up, and every year my Dad would threaten to cut it down 'because it's taking over the sidewalk' and every year my mother would just look at him with THAT look and he would just go and trim a few branches back every so slightly away from the sidewalk.I loved the flowers on that bush... and wouldn't you know, so did a certain bird family who built a nest in it every year!

Nikki Relffe-Arnold

gorgeous Lucy.. I can't wait to see that colourful wreath. What a lovely treat those flowers were...not to mention the hooky time in bed :-) Nikki

Jenny Grant

Am glad you were spoiled! I got an orange tree which is exactly what I'd hoped for. And a splendid dinner. And help with blocking my shawls!

Looking forward to seeing your wreath. I love those quince plants, always wondered if you could make jelly with the fruit it smelled so wonderful.

Happy day!


Yes, I got flowers too, and forgetting it was Mothers day on Saturday I treated myself to a huge bunch of Ranunculas and 3 bunches of Daffs. I then got a beautiful bunch of amaryllis and other gorgeous bits yesterday and a lovely friend surprised me today with some tulips. So my house is filled to the brim. I wish I could justify this every week xx


Wow so many beautiful flowers! the tulips look great all bunched together, like the pictures I've seen of Amsterdam.
I made my mum a brooch with your crocheted daffodils on it, I think she was pleased!
I day in bed just hooking and reading and sipping coffee sounds pretty perfect, especially after today's unnecessary snow


Wow! That's a mega bunch of tulips, absolutely gorgeous! You really do need to get over and see the tulips fields!
Glad you had such a lovely day :)

I love reading your blogs. I feel like I am there. I'm mesmerized by your colors.

Jo Roberts

What a lovely day you had. The Tulips are epic - that is the only word I can use - so many, you lucky mummy.


Julie Taylor

Such wonderful tulips - you're one lucky Mummy!


Well obviously I'm looking forward to the wreath but - goodness me - what an inspired use for a vase! Dare I mention a pan cosy? x Jane

The tulips look so beautiful. You need to come to South Lincolnshire in the next couple of months to see the fields we have here full of them! Such beautiful colours. I was also glad that the weather was a bit grim yesterday so I could also just hang out in the house and rest! Have a great week. Chel x


Oh Happy Mother's Day! Your tulips are stunning! I'm planting some these days so until they bloom i'll be looking at yours. Before you said that they colors for the wreath are strange I was thinking how beautiful they are :) Do you follow a pattern or do you choose randomly? Enjoy your hooky time and those tulips...


Such a well-deserved spoiling day! Those tulips are just outrageous, you are a lucky, loved lady! Thank you for the new tutorial. :)


Lovely tulips, Lucy! And happy mothers day!
Kisses from Catalonia!


such a lovely gift for you from a very loving family.


Such lovely lovely tulips, sounds like you had a perfect day. I spent the day snuggled up in the warm with my yarn, while the bitter winds and snow dragged us back into winter again. Love the little ditsy blue snow flowers xx


You make others happy with your flowers and it's lovely that your family have showered you with lovely flowers on your special day.
Blessings Gail

Lucy, the colours in your life never fail to lift my spirits when I read your blog! I'm a very new "hooker", having been a lifelong "clicker" and always having thought I could never master the hooky thing. However, with help from my lovely friend Kathryn (who introduced me to your blog) and with the inspiration from your photos and patterns, I'm now more willing to have a go at the hooky thing and am quietly delighted at my small successes! I'm glad you got so many tulips, you deserve them x


Oh what a beautiful flowers, I like tulips.
I ave just fall in love with your blanket, I am definitely gonna try some day :)

Have a great week!

What glorious tulips! You all are such a sweet family =-)


Tulips are my favourite too...yours look amazing and I didn't notice they were in a pan until you mentioned it! I made my mum a daffodil broach to wear and a mug cosy too, and I really enjoyed spending my Mother's Day having some hooky time (even though my little man had me hooking to the soundtrack of the football on tv!) Glad you enjoyed your day!

Ann Caldicott

You give so much pleasure to all of us through your blog, it was wonderful to see how your beautiful family spoiled you on Mother's Day. Yes, tulips are such special flowers. I am going through all the bulb catalogues choosing some bulbs for our Australian spring.


Love your tulips!! They are gorgeous!What a wonderful family you have! We have a quince in our backyard. It is very old and doesn't produce very much fruit anymore. Have you ever had Quince Jam? It is wonderful!


Happy Mothers Day! Your tulips are beautiful!
