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 love your outlook on life you happiness and appreciation of the smallest of things. You really are a tonic. Thank you. I gave made a raindrops cushion but added an oilcloth back so it can be used in the garden. Pop over and see. Thank you for the inspiration and pattern x. http://eclectichomelife.blogspot.co.uk/2014/03/attic-24-inspired-crochet-cushion.html?m=1

Sounds and looks a great day. I had a good one too - shopping and lunch with a friend, all in the sunshine. x


It's wonderful to see the signs of Spring - we went for a long walk with our collies today and it was my first day out without a warm coat on. The birds were flitting about in the woods, we saw a woodpecker and buzzards and the trees are full of early blossom - all bright and beautiful - like your cushions and poncho!


I love your blog - all the colors just make me happy!

Winwick Mum

What a wonderful blue sky that is! We've had similar weather in Winwick today - it makes your heart soar to see the sunshine, doesn't it? Can't believe it's a year since you moved into your Studio - doesn't time fly?! xx


Gorgeous post. Can't wait to see your new project!!

ann clements

Cockney Blonde

Love the crochet heart, and of course all your other piccies. My neighbour showed me a crochet heart she's made, obviously from your pattern. Absolutely stunning in real life, x

Barbara (WA)

Oh, please post a photo of the red hyacinths when they bloom!

maria kiteria

i love your blog it makes my day everytime i go and see your work!!! ;)


You make me happy. Thank you for all the wonderful and encouraging inspirations. :)
P.S. See my avatar?? :)


What beautiful photos, Lucy. I too, really enjoyed the gorgeous blue skies. Those crochet goodies are just so yummy - I think I might have to make myself a cushion cover like that - it'd look so good with my little granny squares cushion and my blooming flower!


Hi Lucy,
I love reading your blogs and am a big fan of your crochet works. I enjoy the colors in your blog!!! Hope you do not mind that I have added your blog in my blogroll.


I've just realised that it's a year ago since I read your blog post on your 5th blogiversary, and I was inspired to start a blog of my own. It's been a really enjoyable experience Lucy, thank you so much for the continuing inspiration. And Happy 6th blogiversary.


A lovely sunny and bright day :-) xx lots of love Joy xx

Hi Lucy I'm not sure how else to contact you? I have a yarn store in Brisbane Australia and wanted to ask your permission to teach the lovely little bower birds that you have been workshopping yourself. Love what you do!



I looove your site soooo much! I so often sit down with a coffee, look and read at your site and enjoy it. It always gives me so many ideas and happy moments. Thank you for all your effort and hard work since I know that a site like this takes time and work to keep it updated. I hope you keep it going.
By the way, I live near Dortmund in Germany and every year Dortmund hosts Europes biggest market for creative hobbies and handcrafting. There are 8 halls with sellers from all over Europe, selling: wool, paper, fabrics, paint, beads, buttons, ribbons...everything you can imagine. It is huuuuuge! I go every year with my Mom, we speed through and just visit the stands we are interested in. Still takes all day.
I thought this would be really interesting for you and maybe you can come one day.
Here is the link: http://www.westfalenhallen.de/messen/creativa/en/index.php
It starts next week and I am exited! You can actually have a look at the list of sellers, to see what is offered.


Your Studio looks divine Lucy, so warm and welcoming. Congratulations for the 1st year! In Sydney, Australia we have a huge event called the Sydney Stitches and Craft Show (June'14). Sounds very much like Katja's event in Germany. Australia is such a vast space, the show travels to all the capital cities including Canberra. I think our most famous crocheters would be Jenny King and Judy Mapstone. Judie's 'crochet scrumbles' are incredible! She has a few books too. Jenny has a book on crocheted Australian flowers which is a rare treasure to have.

Loads of happy in your day! Some of the same in mine, I picked a HUGE bouquet of daffodils from my garden, and they've filled the house with such a lovely scent, and such a cheery color of sunshine, which is so nice after a very long grey winter. Love your flower heart, and the green and purple bower bird. The bunting ribbon is adorable! Look forward to seeing the red hyacinths! Happy rest of the week!

Forgot to say.. Happy one year studio anniversary!!! My how time flies!

Lynda M Otvos

Happy Anniversaries !~! Your bright heart shines for all to share and your generosity knows no bounds. Thank you.



Jeanette in Illinois, USA

Hi Lucy!
What a scrumptious, or as you would say, scrummy post!! Truly a delight!

Happy 1st Studio Anniversary!! It is such a beautiful, creative respite from the world and I am so, so grateful you share it with us!

I feel like you are such a kindred spirit in so many ways, especially your outlook on life! Always looking at the small thing, for they mean the most!

Hugs, love & blessings.

Rosanne, California USA

One of those moments was reading your post. Always puts a smile on my face.
