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

Hi Lucy, I hate having builders, plumbers and electricians in! All the mess and upheaval and your life not being properly your own for a while, you just have to keep thinking it will be worth it in the end! Rowen@Coastal Colours x

Yes...an indoors month...Brrrrr! The studio is evolving wonderfully, I look forward to seeing it change and grow! It's lovely here today but cold, we are just about to embark on The Patio Clean Up....I am optimist we WILL be using it this year, (just not sure when!) have a great weekend Lucy! :) x

I agree, March was like no other from previous years but now with the sun shining I feel like a spring clean, changes in the house and getting ready to sell our house later in the year. Lots of changes I feel coming up. The builders etc in are a bit of inconvenience but imagine the finished product at the end. Knowing you, it's going to be gorgeous! Happy April. x


Sounds like you have some big changes in store but I'm sure they will work out wonderfully - hey if it gets too messy you could set up a little camp at your studio! Good luck x Jane


Sounds like you are going to be having a busy few months house renovation wise, just keep thinking about the finished outcome, to get you through the stressful times. April seem to be back on track down south, with lots of April showers so far, although I did see that the peach tree in the garden is starting to blossom. Your pictures are lovely and cosy as always.


Sounds exciting and I know, daunting at the same time. We have stuff to do and I dread the upheaval. Would be lovely to wave a wand and have it all done, but then you wouldn't appreciate it so much!

Looking forward to photos.

Catherine @ Simple Beginnings

Good luck with all the house work, we are thinking about what work to tackle next in our house. I'm sure the outcome will be worth all the chaos.

Sara Jenkins

We've just had to have some work done after a leak. A new ceiling etc.
It wasn't always great having people around and the contents of my house spread further than I thought possible. But now it's all done - it was worth it. :)
I'm sure it will be the same for you.
You can always escape with a glass of slow gin to the studio?!

Margery Daw

How exciting. Nothing like a building project to give you new ideas for the house. Hope it all goes smoothly x


Loved your March and looking forward to spending April with you Joy xx

Howard's House

Your house looks so homely and cosy. I can't wait to see what you have planned for it! Renovations might be scary but they're also incredibly exciting.

Just the thought of the builders coming in sends my stress levels sky high, you just have to think how fabby it will be when it's done. I love the lampshade by the way... Sarah x


Colourful and delightful as always...yes March really was just dreary and cold! I can't wait for this weather to warm up.


What a mess Lucy! But for sure with a happy end! The house will be wonderfull! I want to see it, ok? Happy renovations!!! Kisses!


Hi Lucy, aw, I love the way your home looks so homey! Good luck with the renovations, and just think of all the crafty hooky stuff you'll have to make to decorate the new space :)


Just found your wonderful blog. Did you know you are in the Top 10 Crochet Blogs? Take alook http://blog.libertysyarn.com/top-10-crochet-blogs-2013-edition/ Just started my very first crochet project, it is so addictive. All the best with the home renovations, it is so worth the mess. Sue

As usual, loving the happy bursts of color emanating from the Attic!! Thanks for the time you out in to sharing your colorful, creative, cozy life with us!!


Loving your wreath, such nice bright pictures
Hope your house renovations are going well! I'm always nervous about changing things up but it can make a huge difference


Gorgeous photo of your home Lucy...all that colour makes it look so homely and cosy xx


I am in love with your home. The view from the dining area into the living room is so sweet and inviting.


I'm looking forward to hearing more about your house renovations! They sound pretty major. We have some more minor ones we're starting to think about, which is exciting but also kind of intimidating at the same time.

Chrissies Crafty Corner

oooh! builders! you are so brave!! Good luck and look forward to seeing the work in progress photos. I also love your lampshade and have just ordered lots of decopatch papers! xxx

The building work won't be fun, it never is, but you will look back on in as a mere memory once it's done and you're feeling the benefits! Our extension starts on Monday, I'm feeling very apprehensive, but will be consoling myself with my Stylecraft hexagons, which are slowly coming together. Love your blog, Lucy, it never fails to cheer me up, inspire me, make me reach for my hooks and yarn, and above all smile! xx


I'm sure that it will all work out nicely with builders etc, all scarey stuff but imagine the fun when it is finished. Loving your photos as I normally do and look forward to each time I put the computer on to see if there is a new blog. Love Marion x

Elaine Lawton

We have major running renovations last year and yes, can understand the stress! At least you have the Studio to escape to and all the lovely inspirations it holds there - I highly recommend vacuum pack bags and maybe a spare T.A.R.D.I.S for stashing stuff in while the renovations take place :) Good luck x x x
