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

Cant wait to hear about your week away, and the lampshade! :)


Loving the little coloured balls, just need to think of a project!! Welcome back, hope the holiday blues don't last too long. Sarah


Look forward to hearing about your holiday l am lucky to live in Dorset.
l am new to crochet and attempting a Ripple Cushion.
Love your tutorials you are soooooooooooo clever!
love Lynda


Of course I'll be back, I can't wait to read all about it and see your lovely photos. Eleven! Wow. My older child will be eight in a few weeks and I'm feeling amazed about that.

Your blog is wonderful!

I totally get the feelings you have about your child reaching 11. My twins will be 13 on wednesday and I am constantly amazed at how quickly they have grown. Also with you on these last few days of the holidays and feeling chilly for the first time. Passage of time- slightly unnerving, but isn't autumn beautiful? I love reading your blog and seeing your wonderful creations. :-)


Just back from a verrrry restful holiday myself and in denial about the return to work on Monday. Hope all goes well with the start of secondary school. I'm an old hand now, haha, getting my big girl ready for Y8. Just think 'Reception' - they go from being your Big Girl/Boy to suddenly feeling like babies again. 11? Gawd, it goes so quickly, doesn't it? I don't have mum experience of the boy species but they do seem to remain boys for a bit longer than girls remain girls. Start mentally preparing yourself for Little Lady now. 13 is two months away and we're already doing bras and periods!! Looking forward to hearing about your holiday and the lead up to Yarndale.

Yes, you young mothers, savour every moment of them, because the years fly by until you find you have a grand child age 6 and you can still remember your child at 6! So to hell with the messy house I say!

Love those balls Lucy. Your colours never fail to cheer me.


The sky is a different blue here and the first of the warmth is being felt too.

Anne Marie

Can't wait to read your holiday post.


Dear Lucy, welcome back! Good to hear you had a relaxing time. I'm already veeeery curious to see the finished lampshade cover with the cute tiny balls. And I'm also looking forward to your Dorset pictures. Yeah! xox Sonja


Hi post beach blues... Know just how you feel :0) it's great you have written so soon I look forward to your holiday pics, loving the pebbles!


Lovely pictures Lucy! I'm definitely going to try the little balls, they're fab. If you have flowers in your yard it can officially be called a yarden ...

Looking forward to hearing all about Dorset, I know you love the sea, and hope that one day you will visit Piel island!

Love Claire xx

I will be back for sea breezes. My house is feeling the 6 weekness of the holidays too and I am dying to get everything all straight and in some kind of normal home. I am trying to write patterns and finding the writing down bit hard - I just skip straight into improv. crochet and forget to write the details!! Done two hats - not a pattern in sight, see here, I need tips please anyone... Jo xx


This lampshade will be so beautiful, cannot wait to see it! And I am thrilled of anticipation for your travelogue. Please slowly with mountains of pictures and plenty of words!


I disagree as regards the yarn ends, I like to finish the crochet stage (before I forget the pattern/hook size/yarn) then sew the ends in at the end, yes, even for a king sized granny blanket I did this. There's no "right" way, just what suits you best.

Nice balls.


Welcome back from your well deserved holiday. Sorry to dwell on Circles Scarf tutorial - is there one? I have searched your archives to no avail. September 2009 you mentioned getting round to a tutorial for the scarf but I haven't been able to find it. HOWEVER, you are such a busy lady, and Yarndale just around the corner. If there is a tutorial perhaps you could let me know.

Fiona Marchant

Welcome home Lucy. I too, am in denial about the return to work, which is school, on Monday. Passing on, I hope , my passion for sewing, making, textiles and all things crafty to 11 to 18 year old students. My own baby R, 21 in a week..eeeek where did that go, and my eldest J who is 28 and a mummy too, to my gorgeous grandbaby R. Can't wait to meet you at Yarndale

I love your posts Lucy. They give me such a wonderful sense of happiness when i read them. I love how you see the world. Your attention to detail, colours and just life in general. I always read them with a smile.


I too am in the slow returning to school phase, seems August has been super quick this year.
Your lamp shade cover looks excellent, the weeny balls will be a fantastic addition too

Gillian McM

Oh yes, plenty of seaside blog, pleeeese, I'll read every word, I swear.
