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

Oh I do love to be beside the seaside. I really like it in winter too...bracing walks and a cosy pub. I need to head further south soon!

Impressive picture work here, well done.


How are you, dear Lucy?
I hope everything is well.
I'm looking forward to good news for you!
All my best thoughts,

Mama Syder

Just wanted to say Hi and send you a big wave from sunny Essex...Love your blog, Fab!


Hi Lucy, thank you for your kind comments on my crochet bag. I have finally finished it!
I hope you had a great holiday with your family. Wonderful photos! They make me very jealous.

Looking forward to your next post! :)

Hope you've had a lovely time in Northumberland (must look att the map to find out where it is).
After I've read this about Dorset, and looked at the map, I realized that it's not so far from Torquay, where I spent 3 weeks in the summer of '89. Remember it was this nice beach, Babbacombe (or something like that), that had an escalator or a lift down to the beach. Never seen anything like that since then. Anyway, I miss your blogging!

lovely pictures.. looks like you had a wonderful time! Hope to go there next year too.


Ouh I have been waiting for you to come back home already. Here I am already sneeking behind your back and searching for an idea for the next project.
I think this would like little alike attic24, what do you think?. http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns2/accessories/MMochi-CrochetFlowerGardenShawl.html


Hi, just found your blog a few days ago and have spent every evening admiring the colors and creativity. Now I feel that I must do some crocheting to. Thank you very much for your blog it makes me feel that there is forever summer when I see all the sunny colors.

Thank you once again

Hey your MISSED! just so you know:)

Jonna, 20

First: i am so IMPRESSED by all your crafty work! I am right now working on my very absolutly first blanket made out of "normal super duper basic"-squares (granny or afghan or whatever its called in english?).

Second: H E L P
Ive seen that you, on your hexagons and normal squares, put your square together, instead of spending boring time later on when all square are made. Eum.. i dont get it, and the guide you did on the hexagons is very easy to understand, do you think you could make a similar, but for putting the squares together.

Or if you know a good guide for it - maybe help a poor girl out, and mail it to me?

Thanks and keep up the good work ;)


Hi Lucy your photos are lovely and as colourful as ever. I have nearly finished my big ripple blanket - completely inspired by you - I will send you a piccy when actually finished. I thought I would use the leftover wool to make a round cushion. However, hope you don't mind me asking, but, do I have to increase on the rounds or is it just straight forward round and round.

You are the source of my inspiration in squares. After I saw your blog I started making squares. I know I have much to learn, but I would say that you are fantastic! Kisses and congratulations on your beautiful work.
I would be happy if you would see my blog

Aah, love the pics, they reminded me of my own childhood holidays.

Enjoy Northumberland.

Your gloriously colored crocheted bag inspired my sister to make one and now I am ready to start one as well. I see many happy hours ahead on this project, and look forward to your future posts!

Just visited your site for the first time at my sister's reccommendation. What a delightful experience! You are such an inspiration and being able to share in your life through these amazing photos and charming writings has lifted my life. Thanks you!


How lovely that looks...I'm stuck at home while everyone is away.....my little holiday in Yorkshire seems so far away now!

Glad you had a lovely time!x

Hi Lucy!
Your pics are the only way for me to view the beutiful places and landscapes of GB. So,I am looking forward to your Northumberland photos.
Thanks and have a nice trip!


Leaves me wishing for a holiday myself. Looks like a lovely time. Love the pictures of the knoll of land and the coastal the most, wondering where closer to home here in Iowa I might be able to see something similar... stunning and inspiring.


It looks a lovely place... would love to visit it myself one day :)
