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

Lucy, I just found your site and needed to tell you how beautiful your work is! I love all of the colorful pictures, too. You are very talented!

Happy blogversary Lucy - reading your blog always cheers my day!


Just wanted to pop by and say thank you for sharing your patterns. They are so wonderful and better than any book on crochet I have tried. Your explanations are perfect. I have made 7 granny squares today whilst having enforced confinement with my 3 year old who is poorly on the sofa. It was a great use of my time :-)

I am making my Mum a floral brooch for Mother's day and will have a go at hexagons one day.

Thank you again for your generosity.

Here's to hours of happy hooking!

I love your photo's. I tend to keep things very neutral, lots of white you could say. As a forty year old mom I tend to forget how much colour does for our daily outlook. My 6 year old daughter is a rainbow in disquise and my 4 year old boy, well he's the life of our house. After looking at your very colourful surroundings I decided to add a splash of spring into our decor. Thanks.


How great! how fabulous ! I would have loved to be one of your students... I've just begun to learn fifty days ago. And I really enjoy it.

Sharing something we love makes us better.

Hope to read soon the summarize of a such nice time...


Oh I am so excited for you! What a marvelous time everyone must have had. I wish I could have been there. Go you!


how exciting. I bet you were a great teacher. How I wish I lived nearly - it would be a wonderful treat to be there. So glad that it all went so well.

Happy Blogiversary too - a whole year of beautiful, uplifting, colourful posts. Congratulations and thank you for brightening the days of all your readers. xx


How wonderful for you. How lucky are your students.. Maybe next time I pop over to your side of the world, I'll pop in for a lesson.
Kind Regards

Hey well done You! Great news about your teaching session. There is nothing as wonderful as passing on your own learning to someone else and seeing them have a go! Joy of joys! By the way, your blankets and such like are TO DIE FOR!!! They are truly beautiful.


Oh Well Done on the workshop. Would love to join in. Have just popped by for your advice-I have a couple of hours in London tomorrow. Not long enough for the country living fair and wasn't sure what to do. Then I remembered your recent trip to London and have now made some shopping notes!! So a big thank you. I'll be back late so hope I don't miss all the celebrations tomorrow!
