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

Lucy, thank you so much for leaving me a message on my blog! I hope it will become one of your favourites! Yes, it is very sunny here, I am in West Yorkshire! It's always sunny here:-) xx Rachel on madeleinessofa xx


What a wonderful elephant!!!


Just found your blog through a link, what a wonderfully colourful and informative exciting read it is.

I've not crotcheted since i was a little girl sitting next to granny for help. I think you might just have inspired me to get out the hook and have another go, i would love to achieve one of those beautiful blankies for autumn evenings to keep me warm.

Thanks for the great pics and tutorials, i'm sure i'll be needing to refer to them often for help.


Hey Lucy, I absolute love reading your blogs, you have inspired me to start doing my own blog which I hope you can take a look at www.madeleinessofa.blogspot.com. I am a total beginner but hopefully it will all come together with time - any tips for getting readers from you - who I see as a bit of a blog goddess would be great! Thank you for being you. Rachel x


I recommend the book Happy Campers - you can read some extracts on their website. I have taken the book camping with me for years & used the recipes, star charts, games, all sorts!
Hope you enjoy browsing.
