About Me

  • 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

Hi Lucy,

always love your crochet, so colourful and comfy, I need to get some more practice in since my first attempt (ahem) but there is always 'something' to do!!

you must be looking forward to the weekend?

take care,

Nina x


I just spent a few blissful minutes on your flickr page. Loveliness.


Lucy, you are an inspiration to me with all that you achieve in the day - but please don't burn yourself out!!! I love all your tutorials and seeing all the lovely WIP's and new projects but take care of YOU too!!! There you've been told! I sound like that bossy calender you have!!!


Lucy, I feel that your days certainly seem to have many more hours in them than mine. My "to do" list for today isnt even half done (at the moment Im researching house contents quotes online - alledgedly)and its now dinner time. Good luck with the baking, Ive a PTA meeting to attend - jacqui x


I've just found your blog too. Love your scenes of daily life. Reminds me of when I lived up North and would visit my friends in Bingley and Saltaire. Beautiful place.

And crochet. Wow you are so inspiring me to learn! I actually made a proper doily last night becauase of you. How about that then *she says in a Jimmy Saville accent*

See you tomorrow!



Hello Lucy. Please, please, please do a ripple tutorial! I have searched the internet and found various sites but none of the finished results seem to look as nice as yours and many of them have holes! Your ripples seem to be the perfect width and height and tension. Loving your Lloyd Loom chair by the way. I've been collecting LL furniture for years and managed to find 2 bedside cupboards for £4 last year! If you look underneath you may even find the date it was made!

The Antidote

Ooooh was hoping for a bit more hooky inspiration. Today is the day I learn to crochet!


Love the chair Lucy, I think once you have worked your magic on it, it will be fabulous! - Sounds like you need to slow down a little, maybe after all the PPP's are done? - Enjoy your Mother's Day doing the things you love - Natalie x


This is my first comment on your blog as I have just spent the last 2 days reading it from the very beginning! I have just taken my first tentative steps into crochet and, in a roundabout way, that's how I found your blog. I'm from an area not too far from Skipton and have visited your lovely town quite a few times. I live near to Heysham, Arnside and Kirkby Lonsdale and was very excited to see them mentioned in the blog! There's so much in your blog that feels very personal to me and I will be reading you everyday from now on!
Thank you so much for writing it!
By the way, re your love of colour: check out this site www.chasjacobs.co.uk. This is full of lovely art work by an artist who paints scenes from my local area and reminds me of a post you wrote sometime ago about a lady artist you like who paints very vibrant,almost child- like pictures. Enjoy!
