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

Love the lickety sounds!

And, yeah, my cats used to eat off my spoon/fork/plate, but no more as they have a bit of a weight problem and are verbotten from eating people food.

Love this post JJ - blogging can be great solace from angry men in car-just-been-towed mode.

I called the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Mammal Rescue earlier and got a very helpful woman on the phone who told me that they - along with the city and state wildlife foundations - were aware and had received several pictures. (S)he is a harbor seal, very alert, loves to pose for those cameras, and appears not to be lost – just indulgent and grateful to have found a peaceful sanctuary full of fish! I hope I can see him/her soon.

Lucy, I have house envy! It's lovely, thanks for sharing with us :oD


Hi Lucy...I never really comment on blogs but I have been reading yours now for a few months and I absolutely adore the colours of your work, and I love your view. I am a knitter and have never seen crochet done in such an appealing way. I love it! I feel happy reading your blog : )

Hi Lucy

Just wanted to pop in and say a HUGE thank you because i have successfully followed your granny square tutorial!


Hello Lucy! It must seem very strange to get mail from people you dont know. But I really wanted to say how much I enjoyed your blog.
I love all the colour and the crochet which my grandmother taught me to do. I really love the idea of it all coming back into fashion. I have blankets galore!
Congratulations on your new baby . My daughter has just had her 4th and I am loving all the cuddles and baby smells .
Please keep up the blogging it brings smiles to us all .
Take care and thanks again x


Love the pictures and am glad to hear of your relaxing, creative day! I long for a day just like that! Perhaps this Sunday it will be my turn.... : )


I just discovered your site thanks to a link frm tipnut. I love all your projects and your color choices are wonderful. I also crochet every chance I get and I make a lot of my own patterns, or in many cases I adjust or combine patterns to get the look I'm going for. Your site is so inspiring that I will be following it regularly. Thanks for all your lovely work.


Just found your blog. LOVE IT!!!! I'm an American currently living in your beautiful country. Have taught myself crochet since the winters are so cold and gloomy. Thanks for the inspiration.


Hi Lucy, just wanted to say 'Hi' and offer my thanks as you have sorted out many weeks frustration with your great 'Ripple tutorial'. I was determined to crack it, but with your help it was weeks and not months!
Love your blog, I'm having a 'Happy Day' too. Great isn't it?



hi Lucy,

so glad you've had a bright and cheerful day really hope the weekend and half term is everything you hope it will be. keep up with the colour, love Jx


I voted Lucy. And OMG what alot of votes you`ve got, well deserved. Have a fab week off with the family.

Love Carole from Rossendale xxxxxx


Fun visit to your colorful house today...I especially like the tiger. Also, British Country Living is also my favorite magazine. It's just luscious! Beth
