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

Re: floppy tulips. One of your commenter's a while ago suggested putting 3 coins (copper ones I think) into the water. I have been doing that and I can honestly say that it works. Compared to what used to happen to my lovely tulips before they are now really straight. I've done it about 3 times now. It probably leeches minerals into the water which is drawn up through the stems. Anyway I am a convert! Am always intrigued by the Japanese books but not confident enough to feel I would know what is going on as they are not in English. Love your colourful flowers!

Happy Mother's Day Lucy. Am enjoying similar day - coffee, flowers, new craft book, but accompanied by knitting. Making a tutu and ballet shoes for a teddy, as you do!


a very happy mothering sunday to you! am sure it will be a really special one.
your post is very pretty and relaxing.
one of my daughters reads and speaks japanese, we both love japanese craft books :o)

love and hugs xxx



That does sound like bliss! I hope you have a nice Mothers Day too. :)


Nice to see you are getting a little time in to crochet. Hope that means that the little one is settling down a bit and giving you a more settled time too.
Look forward to hearing about the new project.


Lucy ~ it sounds just the perfect way to spend a Saturday morning. Hope you have a very lovely weekend and a very Happy Mothers Day too :O) xx

Dear Lucy oh those flowers in your post
look wonderful. Was experimenting myself
yesterday evening with crochet flowers(inspired by all the different colours
of polyanthus I have around the house.)
I was down at our local gardening shop(a small family run concern) in the walled garden annex,it has some lovely little gift stuff when I spotted some cards, bought a couple and on arriving
home was delighted to find the following quote inside that I immediately linked with your outdoors Sunday post;

"Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to
play with your hair." kahlil Gibran.

Have a lovely weekend!!
Love Sarah west mids.


Lovely just Lovely!


Lovely! I love saterdays!


lovely post , i always love the way you write..
Have a nice weekend..


Sounds wonderful. I do like the look of those flowers and will eagerly await more on that project. Hope you have a lovely week. :)


¿como haces para tener siempre las flores tan bonitas? un abrazo y feliz mañana de domingo ;)


You sure know how to spread the bliss too Lucy!! Love your blog - I've learned so much from it. Thank You.


Sounds like a great way to spend a Saturday morning. I work all week, so on Saturdays I like to head out to my favorite yarn and sewing shop to treat myself. Or to my favorite antiques shops! Enjoy your weekend!!!!


Looks like the perfect morning! Any chance you could share the ISBN # for the book? I would love to try and find it at my local Japanese bookstore.


Lucy, I wish you a very happy Mothering Sunday! Over here in the States we have our official Mother's Day later on in the year ... in May.

Many thanks as always for the joy that you send out to the world with each of your posts. Cheers!


Lucy, lovely sweet post. You sound so content and happy. I am glad. Enjoy your bliss.


this is one of my favourite crochet books! there is a newer follow up one as well which I recently purchased.


Looks like a perfect day to me! The book looks very interesting, I only recently discovered the joys of Japanese crochet and those fantastic charts! Can't wait to see what's inside the cover :-)


It does look like a perfect Saturday morning. You'll have to let us know how you like the book, it is a beautiful cover. Gorgeous tulips as well.

So, now I know you are really talented. You can read Japanese. What can you not do? Such a peaceful looking morning. Can I stop by for a cup of coffeee.

Hugs for a sunny beach today,

I always find your blog so inspiring...every time I look at it it makes me smile. It's really shown me how to appreciate the little moments of beauty in life...and also to show me some beauty! It's just a wonderful little moment to curl up with my tea and my laptop and peek into your world :)


BRILLIANT , good on you for some personal time! DO tell us what the book is, where to get one like it as I 2 adore Japanese crochet books but can't find how to get hold? I borrowed some of a friend who went to Tokyo but that alas is not a option for me, not for ages and ages anyway.
Ta for the inspiration!

What a wonderful start to the day! xx


I love pyjama days...and your yarn....and your book... I think.....open it please!
