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.

Yours is the only blog that I read religiously - every day when possible. You have inspired me to give crochet another go.
Thanks for the beautiful colours, they cheer me no end on wet, grey days like today!

Had to start my own Flickr set to keep all my fun Lucy inspired projects in. Can't wait to share in your group. Here are few more I took yesterday



I've never commented, but I visit your blog everyday for your amazing photos. They really help brighten a dreary day.

I started my version of your Summer Garden Throw at the beginning of April, and I love it! I'm working with Karabella Aurora 4 on a D hook, so every square is ittybitty at 2.5" x 2.5" but it's a labor of love (figure I need around 775 squares). I have 96 squares done so far, and now that I'm finished with this semester, I have tons of time to devote to getting this blanket finished.

Thank you for a beautiful granny square pattern. It was exactly what I was looking for! http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157618189633940/

Hello Lucy

I am happy to say that you have inspired several lovely crochet projects and they are slowly taking over my house which is a very good thing - you can see most of the pics on my blog, so far Ive done a jar coverlet, a ripple cushion and Im in the process of doing a blanket with summer garden squares. Oh, almost forgot - did the bag too and am about to embark on a teeny version for my girl!

You are a very special and talented woman, and Im glad to have found you and your lovely Attic.

Much love

Hello Lucy-Loo-Two! Here are my links. The first is your ripple pattern which I made into a cusion, the second is your granny square cushion cover pattern with the little flowers on (sorry can't remember its name).



Lucy xxxxxxxx


so many people have said it, but you are SO INSPIRING!!
i currently can't crochet (only knit) but your blog is the main reason for me wanting to learn. your eye for colour and design is brilliant and i squirrel away ideas and designs in my craft journal so they'll be safe until i have learned the necessary skills!
it was exciting to read about your patchwork adventures. i've loved patchwork much longer than i've loved yarn. here's a link to a post from my blog from a year ago (the nursery is all neat and tidy ready for the impending arrival, who's now nearly 1!!) - i made the patchwork quilt in the cot and loved every minute!

my daily visit to attic24 is always a treat. thank you!

I tried out your crocheted flowers - check this out:


Increases the cuteness factor by, like, a million!!

Thank you.


So I am not the only one who keeps coming back for colorful inspiration! You are becoming a celebrity in blogland. :-)

Take a look at my kitchen, I think you will like it! Yes, polka dots etc.


You recently visited me to see my bag, which I thank you for :)
Here it is again


Just a thought, are you on flickr? I know a few people who have groups on there so people can share photos of what they make using their patterns. for example http://www.flickr.com/groups/free_u-handbag_tutorials/

You have a lovely little place here and I always get a little flutter when I see that you have updated as your posts always inspire me.



Hi Lucy and thank you again for making my life so colourful.
You asked if I have done anything using you as inspiration. The thing is that I have not done anything else than that:-)
One month or so I found your blog and now I have done one pillow, one blanket (neat ripple pattern) that turned out to be wonderful. I made the stripes other way(from toes to head direction), as the rows became too long, but it turned to be ok and I ordered Rowan yarn for that from UK:)
This week end I will start doing your colourful bag and after that I will try to use yarn for hexacon that I found from here and that will be my summer vacation project.
I wish you very nice week-end and cannot wait to hear what you will do during this week-end:-)

Hi Lucy,

I just wanted to drop you a note and say THANK YOU. I have suffered with postnatal depression for the past year and through your blog have slowly begun to see the beauty in the small things around me. weather it's a picture from my older daughter, a big sloppy kiss from my teething son or a lovely meal made for me by my hubby. I've also started to crochet again and have made your bag, jar covers and a small pram blanket for my son. No sure how to include the pics but thank you for everything you have done and continue to do to help me.
Strange to think that someone you've never met and help you so much.

Kind regards

Sharon Sunday

I have been following your blog since I opened my own and have enjoyed following other blogs that your links led me to. Sometimes I just look at the pictures. I learned to crochet a chain stitch when I was little, but that's about it. Just enjoy watching. Thanks!


thank you so much for all of those ovely colors!


You make such beautiful crochet! You have inspired me to crochet more! Right now I'm making a ripple blanket. Thank you for reminding me how much I love to crochet!


Lucy, I ADORE your blog and eagerly await each new post. I hope you are considering writing a book! Here is a link to my post with hexagons using your wonderful tutorial:


Hi Lucy,
I don't inhabit flickr or blogland but you can find me on ravelry as cinnamoncupcake. My Daisy Daisy cushion was inspired by your granny square cushion with the flowers on, and I'm in the process of making a colourful round cushion from your pattern too. All the best!


I have only been reading your blog a couple of months but I made a jar cover within a week or so of discovering your blog. It was perfect for a daffodil jar especially as I had recently broken my favourite vase. http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/3381247745/

I did an embroidery too (no photos) and I am sure the colours were inspired by your blog as I made myself use different colours from usual.



Ive got my bag started a bit further along than this picture nearly ready to start going up now.....making a fair size one, will post further progress as I get further on thanks heaps for helping us new crocheting girls couldnt have done it without your tutorials.



I love your stuff, it's so colourful and cheerful. I'm really into crochet at the moment, after teaching myself from a book a couple of years ago. I have a stack of granny squares on the go at the moment, waiting to be sewn together into a blanket. I have marked your tutorial for the flowers, and will have a go at that, when I get a little time.

Thank you for all your lovely photos, and your cheery dispositon, it brightens my day.



Once I visited your blog I could not wait to come back for more color and crochet goodness. You do a terrific job sharing all these with us :) Thank you!

Here is my hexagon blanket. I don't know how many hexagons it will have. I feel I have many more till it is done!

If you make a flickr group I will surely join!
Can't wait :)


I adore your crocheting! xxxxx


Hi Lucy
I was inspired to make the hexagon rug- here are my photos:
I'm currently working on the ripple rug project...
Thank you so much for posting your patterns, they're so easy to follow! I only started to learn to crochet in January, and now I'm on to my third rug :)


We're not worthy, we're not worthy ; )

Thanks to YOU ! Ever since my eye dropped on your blog I've been looking forward to reading your blog. Wondering what beaty you came up with next or what adventour you've lived.

I even followed your tracks to London- Lucy style and discovered wonderfull new shops, I'd never would have seen if not for your blog.

And then I haven't even started on your creative vibe you pass on to all of us readers.

Lucy you rock and the THANKS goes to you.

A attic24 day is a smile on your face day.

Looking forward to that flickr group ; )



Hi Lucy
I have loved learning to crochet thanks to your flower tutorial- I have boys, who in all honesty would rather see a crochet gun or hand-grenade (which to some extent they did resemble in the early days!) but every little girlfriend who comes thro. our doors leaves covered in flowers!
It has been so good for my soul - thank you!
P.s - do you get the same reaction from your little man? or is he more in touch with his flowery side and less in touch with his inner AK47?
