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

Hope you have a lovely holiday x


That seems like such a large feather. Do you know the type of bird with feathers like that?
I'm a city girl in Ottawa, Canada. So I'm not familiar with Yorkshire wildlife. LOL

Happy holidays And safe trip!!!
All the yarn bombing pieces looks fab! Love the enamel piece too.(Don't you just love when that 'something good inner voice' happens?!)Lucky you to have milk delivered right to your door, a rare thing here in the States.I too have a jar of feathers! :D I love that pre-holiday rush, so exciting, you know your about to be off and the routine chores can't faze you.
Safe trip, look forward to the telling :)


Have a lovely time - we're off to Morecambe in the caravan but can't say I'm as organised as u x

have a fantastic time, we are off tomorrow too, for 10 days, and by wednesday this week all i'd packed were the crochet essentials! My husband was joking (I think!) about priorities! but my kids are old enough to pack for themselves now...enjoy your break and don't do too much!


I too pick up feathers, but I have them kind of tucked here and there. Seeing that mu gives me an idea. Have a beautiful weekend.

I also LOOOVVEEE the yarn bombing stuff

Ever since you introduced me to Stylecraft Special DK I've been totally in love with it - I'm on my second blanket, I use it for amigurumi, for everything (I can't work with wool.) I order it from Deramores in the UK and when the package arrived I'm in heaven. It's so silky and yummy and the colours are good enough to eat. So thank you thank you thank you Lucy! Hope you're having a GREAT holiday.


I have been following your blog for a little while now.

I am always struck by the lovely coffees you have - i cafes, on front door steps...

I always pick up feathers. They remind me of my Mother in Law.

Have a lovely jolly.

With you on the Dorset thing - I live here, so if you see a mad woman making a granny stripe blanket on the beach at Hive, give me a wave! Rachel.
