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

Brilliant! Thanks so much for another amazing project!!


This looks like so much fun. I have lots of cat food tins - so that parts easy. The harder part is not having crocheted in 30??? years? i am determined though.


LOVE it! I really adore this and can't wait to make some :) TFS


That looks really fun with the beads, I must have a try sometime! TY.

Have just read Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, I think you might like it (though oh my goodness get the tissues ready...I cried like a baby.)

Thy r lovely......luv all ur hooky proj........


hello Lucy, I have been watching yr gorgeous hooky magic for sometime now and would love to comment. You make me smile and feel happy with yr beautiful sunshiney colours and yr lovely blog. Please dont ever stop.


Lucy, Thanks for yet another great tutorial. I know they take time, but please could you post us a Happy Flower pattern in time for spring? It would look great hanging alongside some bulbs in one of your tin covers!


These might come in handy! Lovely!


OOH Valentines Day idea for the man who has everything and delights in leaving piles of coins (mostly foreign in my OH's case) all over bedroom shelves, window sills etc...tinny cover in a plain boy colour (or stripes in fave footie/rugby team colours) embellished with a Lucy tiny heart...whaddya think?

Love the rainbow one,SO cute!Will have to do some for my youngest.She has VERY long hair. so,lots of hair-bands to keep up with.Love Kate's comment about the males in our lives.What is it with Guys?!Your little tins inspired me to do some cupcakes that open to hold bobbins etc. in my sewing/craft room over the weekend.Will post on flickr,thanks for the inspiration!:)Have a great week!


These are so cheerful, they brighten up the dreary winter days. My daughter has been looking for a project and these look perfect. Easy to do and quick to finish. I know she will have fun decorating them. x


Lovely! I love the effect you got by working only with the back loop. Simple and so nice! Your crochet projects are always so neatly finished, absolutely adorable! Greetings from Poland!


O these are really lovely, I've just opened the tuna xxx


Nagyon tetszenek! :)


Hello Lucy, brilliant tutorial! I so love and appreciate what you do up in the attic. Your world is so creative and colorful and quite the inspiration for me. I am still wallowing in ripply goodness.....

Everyone in my family wants their own "Rippalooza" (ripple palooza) blanket!


You are wickedly awesome!

Lindo trabalho como sempre, você é brilhante nen muito criativa, conhecer seu blog mudou a minha vida, você ensina a quem não sabe crochê e a quem não sabe inglês assim como eu, saúde e sorte sempre, muito obrigada.

Would you grant me permission to use your tutorial and sell the tins? I would only make a few to sell to family and friends and would only offer them on facebook, and I would be using different yarns and colors and beads. Your ideas are so great, I love this blog

Thank you very very much! This is a very nice schoolproject in my school, I am a teacher in Finland. I like very much your blog.


haces unas cosas monisimas,siempre me fijo en tu blog un salugo


These are so adorable Lucy!! As every thing you make just Beautiful and a great idea!!




Thank you so much for the tutorial. I've just finished my first crochet dishcloth and your project is next. Your tutorial is very clear and easy to follow.


That is fabulous, I was worried about the smell of the tuna can, but I suppose a good soak in hot soapy water would cure that!
