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.

Hi Lucy. Just wanted to say a big 'thank you' for the great tutorials. I had managed to work out the ripple technique just before you posted your tutorial on it, but thanks to you I can now make a crocheted flower and a granny square! I therefore have 3 WIP - a large ripple blanket for my bed, a matching granny square flower garden cushion and flowers that seem to be attaching themselves to bags, hangers and anything else that might be around! Thanks again Lucy, you have inspired me to pick up my hook again. Sally.


Waiting a lot that your holiday would already end:-) Greetings from Finland!

Lucy, I adore your blog. It just makes me smile. I love all things British (being American of British descent somewhere long ago) Your lovely Brit phrases and your wonderful stories make me wish I lived near you to play with you! I attempt to crochet, knit, do wheel pottery, scrapbook, watercolour and any other craft I see. Perhaps I am trying to find my inner/outer self. Currently I'm doing watercolour. It takes me away from any worries or struggles of the day. My very best to you! If you are ever in the States and near Cleveland, OH you have a B & B at my house! Gretchen C.

your blog is my absolute favorite. I love to see all your crochet stuff. I learned to crochet from your tutorial on granny squares after trying to learn how for 3 months and not being able to. I appreciate it so much. So I hope you continue to share what you are making with us. Thanks again!!!

Happy Holidays! I have been crocheting some of your granny squares, love your blog and have blogged about you too. I hope you don't mind!


Hi - just popped in to tell you I just watched Kirsty Allsops new programme on Ch4 and wondered if you'd seen it as it made me think in you website - she was in Cath Kidston's kitchen. You might be able to see it on catch-up. Hope you had a nice break.


Hope you had a good holiday ...I am really missing your updates. Can't wait to see what you brought back with you - I too love the Girls Only Shop in Bridport as well as it's market and charity shops galore!
I shall try to be patient ...

Dear Lucy, I have a surprise for you, come and see my blog!


Wishing you great weather during your trip.
I'm making your Crochet Bag, still learning, but following your clear directions and your colorful projects is like making smiles. Thank you for sharing.


I need to say a big big thank you to you! Your crochet patterns are certainly highly recommended by other bloggers, but I never dreamt that someone like me who only just knew how to do the chain stitch could ever follow a pattern and I have. Your ripple pattern is so easy to follow it took me less than 30 minutes to get the hang of it. I'm sure what I'm doing isn't perfect but it would probably only take someone to give me a couple of extra pointers now and I'd be on my way!!! :-)


Happy holidays... I'm so sorry but I envy you your Dorset journey. It's so lovely there!!!
Can't wait to see photos!


I am sure you don't read all thee comments, but I have just followed your ripple pattern and I think I have it sussed.... thank you!

when i read the word "farewell" on Sat i was stunned, ending ur blog, saying goodbye? did i miss any episode here? arent u said u are addicted? u really scared me, lucy. huh, so glad u were just on a holiday. miss u so, waiting to be pampered by ur lovely photos soon.


Happy holidays....and vacation by the sea, oh what fun. I was loving that picture of the magazine with the granny square quilt, what magazine was that.


Happy Easter, and have a lovely, wonderful vacation. :~)


I hope you had a fab weekend, I didn't see you in Bridport, mind you we flew through on our way from Seatown to West bay so unless you'd stood in front of the pub with the Elvis night waving a crochet blanket over your head I probably wouldn't have spotted you! lol

Goodness, I nearly had a heart attack - for a moment, I thought you were bringing your blog to an end!! So glad to hear you are just having a holiday. Have a very happy Easter and super jolly holidays, looking forward to hearing all about it when you get back. xx


Have a wonderful time, Lucy. Dorset is one of our fave hols destinations too, and Bridport! Wonderful. A little secret - if you go to the village of Netherbury, take a walk up the wooded track just before you enter the village, walk about a mile or so and on the right you'll stumble on a rather famous little cottage. You might know it already! We've stayed at Star cottage in Netherbury twice and I was THRILLED to find this little house whilst out on a walk. The sign is no longer on the gate but I was still giddy when we found it. Emma x


I love your blog. very colorful :)


Have a great time and Happy Easter too !
