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

It good to see you are feeling tip top again, and wow the vibrant orange of the flower is so gorgeous, have a great week.

So happy you're feeling back to normal! Enjoy your flowers.... xxx


What a stroke of luck! I just thought I'd have a quick peek to see if you were about before I leave for my crochet group - and, there you are :)
Glad to see you restored and I am soooo envious of your flowers as I can't find any 'proper' bunches like that locally.
Looking forward to your photos and new hooky projects ♥♥.


Lucy! Those dahlias are delightful indeed. And very autumnal in color!
Your blog brightens my day. Here in Maine, U.S., it's dark, damp and dreary. So I'm glad I checked on your corner of the world.
Have a marvelous day...always waiting to see what crocheted wonders you create.

Wow, Those orange dahlias are lovely! And I love the colour combinations in those little crochet flowers!


Such beautiful dahlias. Enjoy the quiet time, it certainly
Sounds like you've had a crazy few months leading up to Yarndale


Morning Lucy!

Ahhhhh isn't it nice to feel refreshed and back to ones old self again?! I love silence once the bears have started their school day. I feel like it's my time to gather my thoughts and get things done. I cherish it actually.

The Dahlias are amazing. I do love them so. They are very much a 'look at me' flower. Very proud and magnificent. It's amazing how much joy, some flowers in a jar can bring!

I love how you talk about your cup. I just did a post about cup love!

I'm glad you have recovered from Yarndale. I cannot even begin to imagine how full on it must have been for you! I bet so many women travelled many a mile just to see and speak to you there! You are quite a living legend in the crafting world!

A beautiful and joyful post to read!

Have a gorgeous rest of a day!

Love Vanessa xxxx

Loving your little crochet flowers! :)
Glad you are feeling better and relaxed. x


Love your blog. Pleased you are enjoying life again! Sometimes you just have to slow down and recharge your batteries. Jealous of your flowers! I don't stay anywhere near a market. Keep up the good work. Take care

Beautiful flowers, I love the oranges, they are so right for this time of year I think. Also loving your new mug. Can we share, as I am not allowed any more in the house please!

Enjoy finding your peaceful self once again.


I really ♥ orange flowers, I think they are my favourite - roses, gerberas, calendula / marigolds - and those dahlias are lovely! My current fascination is with ranunculus...
Glad to see you back :)


Ahh what a lovely post :) So glad you hear that you have your mojo back !! xx


Glad your back and yarndale is off your shoulders...must be a huge relief for you..?

Lovely, Lucy. A lovely attic24 post. I was excited to see that it is a back-to-normal post, with flowers, cup, and little hooky projects :) Your dahlias and hooky flowers look gorgeous!


Glad to hear that you are feeling better!
Lovely flowers!


Glad to hear you're feeling more like yourself again, it can be hard to wind down after a huge event like Yarndale. I'm loving your new mug, I have a thing for mugs even though I rarely use them, I don't drink many hot drinks. Markets are a great place to buy flowers, especially things which are a little more unusual. I have some dahlias in the garden, such zingy colours they come in.

just read and loved every word x You cheered me up no end Gayle xx

Nice to have you back! I love dahlias too and used to grow all kinds of varieties until I got too worn out fighting a losing battle against the slugs and snails. I'll try again another year, but I still grow those lovely pot marigolds - none of your cultivated varieties, thank you, they have to be the proper ones!

PS The man at the Herdy stand at Yarndale told me that orange is a very creative colour (as he sold me an orange mug!) so perhaps you picked the colour to fit with your mood! xx

Ada Bea

Hello back! Glad you are feeling more you after what must have been an exhausting few weeks, even though I also know it will have been full of highs! I'm a fan of pure cotton white bedding too, we've not had anything else on the duvet since 1990!!! But of course I do love those vintage sheet pillowcases as well....soon I'll have my very own crochet pillows on there too! Have a lovely week sweetheart! :) x


My grandad grew dahlias - they always remind me of him :)


I loved this post, especially the naughty Dahlia.

White cotton? no comparison. Fresh and crisp! you cheered me up with your lovely post today.

Hello Lucy! Glad to hear you're bouncing back to normal. We've missed "normal Lucy post." Love, love, l-o-v-e the dahlias! Here you're more out to find mums(chrysanthemums)this time of year, in fact I bought a lovely potted candy corn version(orange, yellow and white) one yesterday. Have a great "normal" day! :)

Natas Nest

Nice to hear you're feeling balanced again :-). Great pics, love the bright orange dahlia!


It's good to have you back Lucy!!!!

Fiona Marchant

Glad you are back...glad you have regained your inner calm.
Apart from the "buzzy brain". I have one of those too. Setting up my own little shop on Etsy, wondering whether to have a go at running an adult sewing class before Christmas. Lots of crafty ideas swimming around too...shame I have to work. Anyhoo, have started on two of my Yarndale goodies..and enjoying doing them. Take care...
