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

A lovely colourful little den, treasured moment indeed. They fly by so quickly. :)


oh i'm loving all the blankets.. they are so bright and colorful.. where did you get them?
The fort is so cute.. have so many memories of my own fort days.


Oh, I miss those days of builing tents from blankets, pegs and upside down chairs! Every generation does it. Just think it probably happens all over the world.


Oh those blankets are soooo yummy! You are such an inspiration and taught this old dog a new trick...crochet. I hope you dont mind but I blogged about you today here http://fondantkiss.blogspot.com/
Thanks for sharing your amazing talent and flair.
Best regards


I had to write and tell you about a little town where we are spending our holidays - it reminds me so much of the photos I see of your little village.
It's like a little bit of England has been transplanted down here at the bottom of Australia.
And it has such a lovely name - Port Fairy.


That hooky hideout would be perfect for me and a good book. I am finally starting your bag pattern. It took me forever to find yarn that would "do".

Thank you, dearie dear one, for your lovely comment the other day -- I send you big warm hugs from us in the crocheting crew here. I absolutely love that the ripples and grannies are being used to make (the most expensive) forts (on earth:-). But really, is there any better use for such beauties? Not!!! :-) xoxoxo, Mrs. P.


What a great way to spend a holiday day! Our kids love to build forts too - such fun to watch them build, plan and play.

I'm super jealous! I never had such bright supplies to make a fort with!


Lucy ~ It's lovely to see you back ~ I missed my little visits to the Attic when you were away. What a fabulous Hooky Hideout! Just the kind of thing my two like to do too ~ and it is always nice to know that brotherly and sisterly argey-bargys happen in other homes too! We were back to school on Tuesday as well ~ it is always rather lovely to get back to some kind of normality after the holidays but I do find the house a bit too quiet sometimes without the sound of children running around playing! Enjoy the rest of your week :O) xx


Its lovely to see the world through the eyes of a child again. We used to make our 'camp' with one of those old fashioned wooden clothes airers, it wasn't as lovely and colourful as this though!

Hi have you seen your crochet over at blackdog blog threadbearfibrearts
oooh lovely


Building blanket forts is the best fun ever! Even better I imagine with some lovely colourful hooky goodness!


I love hideouts. My hideouts were NEVER as beautiful as yours though.

Looking forward to the curry recipe, I cook all your recipes regularly, they're all wonderful! Love the hooky hideout, my children used to do that with sheets draped over the climbing frame, yours looks much more cosy! Hope you manage to get to knit and natter on Thursday, can't believe I'll be there myself in June xx


Oh it is wonderful and colourful, I do wish I could crochet. Our dens used to be boring old white sheets!


Ohhh I always made these tents when I was a little girl! Wish I had a tent like this!


So much fun and such a coloful place to play but a word of caution. My grandchildren pulled the anitque and fragile blanket off the living room sofa and did the same. I was upstairs and didn't realize. The next time I opened it up there was huge hole in the corner where they had stuck it under the leg of a chair and pulled/stretched/ripped. I have to cut two inches off that end and hand sew the edges. Ugh!


Not heard that for a long time..argey bargey...haha!!!

I love, love, love your style...colors!!! They make me sing! I would love to have a stash of yarns (like a box of crayons) that I could have on hand, but I don't know what brand/weight I should concentrate on. Any advice?


I absolutely love that granny blanket on your sofa - it is very inspiring - i am going to try making one - would you be able to tell me what size crochet hook you used and what wool is was - loving the bright colours you have in your home.


Now that's a place I could nap all day long. I'd better get hooking!


Days like this with the kiddies are very sweet! Thank you for sharing!!
