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, stay at home Mum with three young children. We live in a 100year old Victorian house in the North of England which we are slowly renovating, and here I spend my days :: mothering, decorating, crocheting, baking, sewing, crafting and gardening. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world. xxxx

It looks lovely, a bright spark in a dull winter! Well done you!!


Beautiful colours for a wintery walk. Sarah


I do love the new look of the coat, it looks completely different. The good thing about dyeing different fabrics together is that all colours will compliment each other. I might use your idea to turn a plain jumper into something special. x

Fiona Marchant

Oh my goodness..how perfectly you, Lucy. It is utterly gorgeous. Be proud...be very proud of your splendid up cycling. Soooo jealous xx


What a great idea! I love it! Might need to do something similar with my coat...

Nikki Pierce

oh how fabulous - love it!!!


ooo, wow, there's no one out there with such an incredible happy winter coat like yours....i am almost sorry my coat isn't old and can not be coloured like yours...! Have a happy winter!


Perfect!!! Bye to Switzerland. Cornelia

Sara Jenkins

Lucy, it looks wonderful. I can see why it has made you happy. :) x


Inspiring upcycling!

Amy at love made my home

Wow, it is wonderful - a real coat of many amazing colours, but mainly beautiful red! I hope that you love wearing it. xx

stunning coat. I love red. I love crochet. Gutted I didn't win the Fig1 goodies but this almost made it ok x


Absolutely beautiful. I wish I could wear a coat like that in winter but unfortunately here in Queensland, Australia it simply does not get that cold.


Oh my goodness, that is just perfect!!! Lucy is very clever, and we love the Third-Person Narrative of this little tale :-D


What a magical tale, on a winters night, I hope you two live happily ever after. Love you're fab new coat.

Lucy is brilliant!!!! I imagine her friend secretly wants the coat back now.lol Well done Lucy, well done! :)) I would do this, as my mother did before me to let out hems and such, but with ribbon, love the crochet idea better. I've been hanging crocheted candy canes on the tree today, in "Lucy-fied" colors. ;)


Beautiful, a job well done, wear it proudly!


Fantastic !!!congratulations for your perfect work and ideas !! I love your blog! best regards from Marseille "la Provence " FRANCE


You are so talented, inspiring and generous for sharing with us the story Lucy!!! Loved how it turned out. Gorgeous! Love peace and crochet Gabriela

Jenna Priest

Wow that is lovely!! X


Oh I love Dylon! Usually it turns out ok - just once I wanted to dye old red ektorp covers dark grey and they turned out deep damson colour - even better for my colour scheme - this was a pleasant surprise :-) I'm not afraid of upcycling, so if any garment or cover is greyish or faded - Dylon Treatment is required immediately :-) I'm surprised my washing machine is NOT rainbow coloured inside :-))))

Your coat looks wonderful :-)

Your coat with its lovely hooky bits will ensure that any dark day will have a smile.


Hello Lucy, I've so enjoyed your blog for many a month but never made a comment, but just had to tonight! LOVE the look of your coat. Such a clever idea. We need to see a picture of you wearing it, so we can see what it really looks like!


I like a story with a happy ending! Go, Lucy!

Erin Rohr

You are so creative!! Love the red.
