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

Those pictures are so lovely. I have dozens of them saved from my grandchildren apart from all the ones on the walls & wardrobes upstairs.

Such lovely treasures.


Your colorful pictures brighten up the dreary day we've been having over here. Can't wait to see your new designs. x

Nothing like those handmade cards, treasures. Happy mother's day Lucy! It's not till May here in the US. Love those buns, a friend gifted me with some butter she made herself recently, de-lish.I keep seeing all these beautiful crocheted 'pimped' bikes in blogland. I have plans for yarn bombing one of the girls old bikes and adding it to my flower garden, basket and all...but, I WANT one to ride now! lol Look forward to the reveal. Happy week Lucy!


Lovely sentiments from your children. Cant wait to see your new projects for chunky yarn also.

Ada Lee Cook

I have looked several times here in the US and can't find the Simply Crochet magazine. I'd love to see your articals as I follow your blog and have copied several and worked several of your patterns. Love your colors. Happy Crochet. Ada Lee

Amy at love made my home

Dear Lucy!Thank you so much for your inspiring an your creativity! I love your talent, patterns and pics. Thanks, that you share this with us. I've seen the article about you in the "Simply Crochet Magazine"....but I can't get this Magazine here in Germany in the shops. So I've took a look in the world wide web....and I've get it! But much more important is, to read your wonderful and inspiring blog!I hope you understand me and my bad English.....so much greetings from Münster, Germany.


Hi Lucy, Thanks for another beautiful post. These little expressions of thoughts and love from your children are so precious. I hope you have a designated treasure box in the attic for such valuable items once they are taken off the mantle and the wall otherwise they will just float around and become lost. These moments are fleeting and it is so lovely to (secretly) look back on them when your children have left home. I think you might need a BIG treasure box!


Happy Mother's day!!! Here in Mexico is till May.....Love your post!


Happy Mother's Day! I think the glass print idea is really neat! What a cool idea for little kids to do. And yes, I DID see Greedy For Colour's bike and it is amazing! I forgot about that post. I never thought to crochet something for my bike before and I totally want to now. Hope it starts to warm up for you soon. :)

I always enjoy your cheerful little posts. It was a grey, dreary day here, and your photos were just what I needed for a little pick me up. Can't wait to see what you are working on.

Hi Lucy,
Another lovely post. I particularly like the flower painting; what a brilliant idea and a real 'keeper'. I also just wanted to say a big thank you - I've just finished a stripy blanket following your pattern. I love it to bits and it's really brightening my day. x

Hi Lucy, isn't lovely to get our kids art ... I always loved displaying it in our house and I still do. My kids are teenagers and I still love when they make something and I love to display it and admire it every time I pass by it. I have bought one of the magazines just to see your article... Great! I loved it.
I'm currently working on a very colorful, Japanese flower blanket which I have shown parts of it on my blog. In May it will be my SIL's 50th birthday and she always wanted me to make her a blanket...e I thought this to be a good opportunity. I'm enjoying very much. If you have some time come by and check it out. I will be completely done with it in a couple of weeks. Beautiful colors on your current work!

We can't always have finished products to show. Sometimes a beautiful work in progress brings about the same excitement. I'm currently in the exact same mode (http://gocrochetcrazy.blogspot.de/2014/03/i-love-surprises.html?m=0) and very excited for the outcomes. But, in the meantime, the little joys mean a lot. The daffodils and homemade cards are all treasures. You've reminded me to treat myself to a bouquet of tulips. :) thank you for sharing the Greedy for Coloir blog with us, as well. Another feast for the senses!

I love daffodils, unfortunately here in Oz I have to wait until the end of our winter before I see mine. Thanks for sharing Greedy for Colour blog always nice to find a new blog to follow.

These little joys bring so much into our life. Your kids' cards are sweet and lovely :)I hope to get such when I become Mom :)
Have a nice day Lucy! Waiting for your new projects to be displayed!


Thanks for sharing your joys - the pictures brought a smile to my face!

The cards from your childrens are adoreable - esp. the buttons! They know you well...

Take care,


yarn and pencil

Such a joyful post Lucy; it's always the little things that matter and mean the most and are worthy of treasuring for ever.
Blessings to you and your family,

Your blog and photos always make me smile and the hand-made cards are so special and precious. I have saved mine over the years and they still give me pleasure!
