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

that chair by the window looks so inviting... I'd be tempted to sit there all day... or maybe just sit on the floor so that I could ADMIRE the chair in all its glory!!!

love the way you use colour


Adorei seu blog, muito colorido, lindo demais, parabéns!! E esta flor divina...

Hello Lucy
I just popped in to say that I hope the ascent of Mt Clutter is going well. And also because I just remembered - if you go a-mountaineering in Nepal - the lovely porters bring you "Bed Tea" and I was suddenly concerned that if you didn't know this - you might be missing out on Bed Tea during your ascent of Mt Clutter - and honestly - that would never do!


hmmm, looks like a home improvement going on. i spotted your flower scarf!! i was to ask you how you join the leaves between the two flowers, but i guess the time is not right at the moment, bump24 needs ur time more. happy crafting to you and waiting patiently for the decopauge ta-dahh post.

Hello Lucy

Lovely to read how your are cheerfully progressing with your work around the house. Can't wait to see what Bump24's bedroom will look like. That decopatching does look like fun. I had a look at the links. I think it's something that my 9 year old daughter would enjoy doing with me. I had been stuck for a couple more present ideas but that's fixed it now. Thank you!

Lucy, would you mind contacting me about a knitting/crochet/yarnish charity guest blogging event I am involved with for Medecins sans Frontieres? I can't see a "contact me" option so please forgive the public request.


*takes a deep breath* i can smell the hyacinth clear over here in california!! the scent is intoxicating! =]


Hi Lucy!
I discovered your blog a while ago while looking for some granny square patterns, and let me tell you I LOVE it. You see, I'm now writing my PhD thesis is Law and, while I'm doing it by choice, the task, colorwise speaking, can get quite boring some times: the black on white of the screen does not really contrast well with the black on white of the books.

So your posts really do brighten my day! Thanks a lot for posting and everyday I wait for the new colorful post!


I love your blog! So bright and happy- I needed that today, and I've decided I need to add some brightness to my house to perk things up! Thanks for the inspiration!

Your pictures are SO beautiful!
Brightening the world is such a lovely calling!


Congrats on your progress to conquer Mt. Clutter! Love the decopatch - very colourful. :-)
Have a lovely day!

Ah! It is so good to see you happy! You are very lucky and your home is indeed beautiful! xxx


Hellooo Luce

Sorry I have not been in touch lately. So glad one bump is getting bigger and the other clutter bump is getting smaller. I love decopatch - it is great to do with kids.

I love the way our bodies wake us up in the early morning getting us ready for the baby but wouldnt it be nice to spend the last few months actually getting decent sleep instead!

Love Emma xxxx


I've just popped back to confirm say that I have to agree that your blog definitely has "gezelligheidsfactor"; I've just looked it up! (thanks to Heleen I now know about this lovely word) - what a perfect word for your blog and your home.

Hi Lucy, I love your blog. I run a small knitting business called 'The Wool Sanctuary'. I had a stall at a Craft Fair at Cowslip Workshops in Launceston and quite a few people told me to look at your blog they said I would love it. They were right I love it. Your photography and your crochet, and everything else actually, is amazing. I love the way you put colours together a woman after my own heart. Really pleased I have found you.



Your home is just gorgeous - you have lots of really nice things (for want of a better word!), very kind of you to share!

Flippin' heck Lucy, do you ever stop? You make me laugh a lot, I love your impulsiveness and energy. I went to Knitting and Stitching Show at Ally Pally in London - wonderful. I must look in Liberty this Xmas for wonderful buttons like yours, normally avoid Oxford St this time of year though - unbearable! Take a look at my blog tomorrow, I'm showing some Decopatch that my daughters did. Thank you so much for your support with my new blog, much appreciated indeed. Hope you can sleep! xxx


Your home is so lovely Lucy and de-cluttering is so satisfying you must be thrilled - decopatching looks really interesting - might have to have a go one day. xxx


I'm crazy about the idea of deco-patching! Looks SO fun. And by the way, am totally enamored of your button collection.


Wow the bump24 room looks great! I've just done freds room f and b all White it looks great really fresh and bright good for the soul I think!!! I too was very tempted with the decopatch your words will look fab when you are finished! Does he have a website! Well done on your blind for the bathroom, knew you would whizz through it xxx
