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

What are those beautiful flowers next to the new bar of soap. They are stunning. Did you find out what is wrong with your crochet finger? I have just finished my first ripple blanket in organic cottons. Thank you so much for the pattern

I LOVE the ripple blanket in the boat. These things are ideal for cute areas like that. I would love a little boat myself but sadly probably will never get one. Your lovely square chair colour is beautiful. I'd love to do that design, and really must master it.

Lots of lovely photos and colours.


Enjoy the peace, we all need a little down time and me time (especially when it is too hot to think straight!) Sending cyber good thoughts to your finger:( I can only imagine how frustrating that it, and don't worry you are not going on about it, you are just in need or some positive well wishes.


What a lovely gentle post and what a rose that one rose of you'res is, it so stunning. Glad your enjoying Summer, I'm having a slow recovering week here at the Summerhouse too after a very busy weekend away. Hope your fingers on the mend soon.

siempre leo su blog,espero sus fotos, tan coloridas amo crochet,me encanta sus maravillosos tejidos,felicidades y saludos


What a lovely calming post. Thanks for sharing Lucy x


It looks as though you had a fantastic week. I think sometimes when we're busy we can easily forget to slow down and enjoy the little pleasures in life, so thank you for reminding me to take time to notice them.


stay busy and happy lovely lady :-) xx Joy xx


I love the Astrantias(?) by the soap and the crochet is colourful and beautiful as always. I've been wondering whether to pick my gooseberries yet - this may have answered my question. I'm hoping to get at least one jar of jam out of them! x


Gooseberries were just about the only thing that grew on my Dad's allotment when i was a kid - consequently I can't face eating them now. But they are a very pretty shade of green. The flowers all look lovely, especially that close-up of the orange rose!


It's good to slow right down and breathe sometimes, isn't it? I've been trying not to overbook my week so much and spend more time in the moment. xx


I'm so glad you're enjoying those quiet moments. It's the little things in everyday life that makes it so golden. I love your friend's little boat-house!!! Adorable!

Sad to hear your still too sore to enjoy crochet...but happy to see so many lovely flowers.


It's nice to take it slow sometimes. I'm glad you had a calming week.


Tomato feed on the roses - you'll soon have them racing out almost faster than you can keep up with the dead-heading. ;)

Wendy Rance

Pleased to see you are managing a little crochet, it is indeed good for the soul. Your flowers are beautiful, but those gooseberries made my mouth water.....gooseberry pie, a memory from my childhood. Keep smiling :)


I will send healing thots so that your mended and able to cross a mile a minute! Nice to hear you had a calm week...time to renew. You'll soon set yourself a comfortable pace between home and the new studio. Socializing can wear a person out and you need some 'me' time. I've started a ripple blanket this last week and am enjoying the rhythm of the stitch and the colors. I like your ripple stitch the best of the ones I've tried. Hugs, MO

Hi Lucy - I've been reading your blog for a few years now, but this is my first comment. I love your crocheting and you have inspired and helped teach me to crochet. I also have repetitive strain injury, caused before I started to crochet, so I know how it feels to have pain in your hands. I have found that I am able to crochet without pain using Clover Soft Touch crochet hooks - http://amzn.to/13Kb7RH
Other crochet hooks cause me to have pains in my hands immediately. Clover hooks have been a real life-saver for me.

Dorothy Griffiths

Hi Lucy you have been on a roller coaster of a ride and the body is telling you to sit and enjoy your life while your hand heals. Your flowers are just gorgeous, what colours and so well deserved Lucy. You have a restful week, time to recharge those batteries.
Lots of love


A few years ago I had inflammation in both of my pointer fingers. They were stiff and swollen and hurt if I bumped them. No knitting for me until someone suggested I try concentrated tart cherry juice 2 Tbls. once a day I think it was. In a few weeks they were feeling much better and it has never come back. Don't know if you can find this as I'm in the USA. It is like a syrup. Keep refrigerated.


Hi Lucy I have also followed your wonderful and inspiring blog for a while now and have learned so much from you! I had awful pain when I crocheted last year, had an Ultrasound and they found a ganglion which luckily self resolved, definitely worth a referral to check it out.
Also on a different note -have you posted the address for yarndale triangles yet as I have made you some too?
Take care
Tania xx


Hi Lucy, have you tried using the clover amour crochet hooks, they took all my pain away.
