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

Lucy, I PM'd you on your Facebook page on 4 August. Please would you reply, even if it is negative?
Regards, Fran


Oh my, aren't they sweet! My little lady would love these!


I foresee a plague of loveliness! Thank you Lucy.

Hi Lucy, Absolutely adorable!!!
Will most certainly be making some of these cute little critters!!!Thank you!!!Have a fab weekend!!!


Lovely ladybirds. Hope the yarn bunting isn't taking over too much! I saw some the other day while out Gromit hunting, and it made me think of you. It had been strung up all over the courtyard of a beautiful little city hotel (Hotel du Vin in Bristol), above a Gromit, and it looked lovely. So it will all be worth it in the end I think.


Aww, cute, funny, and heaps of possibilities! Thank you Lucy!! :-) xxxx


Oooo la la you made my day, they are so sweet! I'm so pleased you had a day with your little lady it's so sweet when we take the time to enjoy each other, I miss those days when my daughter was little.
Be blessed my friend and crochet on and keep calm...


Lovely! I always follow your blog update, Lucy and your colorful crochet and life always make my day and inspire me. Thank you, Lucy. Keep up your colorful works! xxx

Your Yarndale link didn't work for me :(
I love the pattern, thank you! I can't wait to make the lady bugs!


Lucy- so nice to read about someone enjoying the holiday time with family. It seems to be increasingly current to complain about spending Summer time with children- what a breath of normal,fresh air to read your blog and know that at least one family is having fun together- as ever! Great bugs too.

These are adorable! Thank you for the tutorial :)

These are such a precious idea!! I'm feeling the need to bring out the yarn as the seasons start to change.

Hi Lucy, I hope you received my bunting from Melbourne, in Oz. As I am not a blogger or on f/book (gasp, horror, I know), I can't enter your comp to name the Yarndale sheep but permit me to suggest 3 names... Barney Yarny...Patch or (my fav) Wooliam!!!
PS LoVe your wOoLly WoRk.


Just love love love Ladybirds and if you are a born and bred Norfolk Girl girl like me they are and have always been called "Bishey Barney Bees" (spelling?)it's something to do with a famous Bishop Barnabus of years gone by...I will have to look it up and remind myself..but I love how the family's here have always passed this name on through the generations and it's stuck. I've not seen any Bishey's yet but i heard they are late because of the cold spring.


nice & funny !!!


Lucy, those are so gorgeous! Ladybirds are my lucky charms. Every time I see one, I know my wishes will be fulfilled! Thank you so much for always sharing your wonderful patterns, my home is beautiful thanks to you! Have a wonderful weekend! :)
