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

Sorry Lucy! Me again! My three-year old son, Dominic, has just come into the kitchen and seen the pictures of your cakes. Do you know what he said? "THAT'S A CAKE!!" You had to hear it - it was just the way he said it like - "Now Mummy, that's what you call a cake, not those flat pancakes you try and pass off as a sponge." Cheers Dom! Out of the mouths of babes, etc. Love Sam x


Now I am hungry!! Everything looks yummy - I too was one of those kids who always had bakegoods in their lunches just wishing for something prepackaged - how silly now as I think about it.

Hello Lucy. FANTASTIC cakes. You are now the Queen of Baking as well as the Queen of Colourful Crochet. Can I just ask ....? What size tins do you use? When I make a sponge cake I am always disappointed as they turn out too flat. I think my tins are too big. Please let me know which miracle tins you use and maybe my cakes will start looking a little something like your masterpieces. Love & Hugs. Sam Terry in a very wet and soggy Ashford, Kent


Oh my god! all of this just look délicieux!
I love the pictures, your blog is fabuleux.


Hello Lucy, I found your blog quite recently and just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy it. I love your colourful pics, your crochet and your baking. Your house looks just SO inviting, not to mention the cakes...
Thanks for a real feelgood blog! Jill

PS I adored your little bird in your previous post!!! when I saw the first photo, I thought you had made a potholder!!! If you like those, go have a look on grannymania.canalblog.com

That looks delicious. As a fellow stay-at-home-mum, I love to bake too, but don't often at the moment - something to do with trying to lose baby-weight!!

Been meaning to point you in the direction of this crochet pattern for a snowflake garland http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Crochet/Projects/Seasonal/WR1691+Crochet+Snowflake+Garland.htm

Nothing better than baking when the weather starts turning colder.. I enjoy baking and cooking much more during the cool seasons. I have a recipe for a icing for a choc cake- it is made with Coca Cola (really more of a glaze) - it is soooo good- I could just eat it and be completely happy!!


Oooh lovely inspiration Lucy, it is my turn to bake for Knit and Natter tomorrow, Mmmm what to make?


i'm soon off to bed, and after reading this delicious post am sure to have very sweet dreams!
xoxo Kali
