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

I wish you would write a tutorial on how to crochet over wooden coat hangers. I've seen them online, but nobody writes a tutorial like you do. I consider myself very remedial in the crocheting world, but I do understand your tutorials. As I've said before, I'm a knitter and an Attic24 crocheter.All I know about crochet has been from you...and that I thank you for.

Hi Lucy! I wanted to send you pics of the baby afghans I have made using your joining technique. I always liked to do granny squares, but never liked to sew them together afterwards. So once I tried your technique of joining as I went, I was totally "hooked"! I've been using jewel colors and the results are so pretty. At the last baby shower I went to, the new mom opened the afghan, held it up, and everyone cheered! That really caught me off guard! So much fun! Anyways, I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your website and all the crochet information. Let me know where I can send you pics of the afghans if you're interested. Thanks.

Hi Lucy, I just love your blog! All the wonderful bright cheery colours and makes. You have helped me with my crochet and inspired me to create new things. I eagerly await your bloggy blogs, hope you all had a great holiday in the connievan.

Hope you have had a lovely holiday Lucy. I love the things you've bought for Connievan, I had lapsed a bit with the blanket I am crocheting, but looking at the pics of blankets in those vintage caravans has spurred me on to get it completed!


Hey Lucy - I bet you had a fantastical week - what lovely weather!! I am very jealous, everywhere i go now I see stuff that i think would look wonderful in my own little caravan - I am starting small, hopefully i will have a tent soon and i will make that my own little haven! Cant wait for the next update!

Connievan looks like such an exciting project Lucy! I can't wait to see what your magic creates... how you get the time with a new baby I'll never know! You make me feel so pathetic, I never seem to be able to find time to do my projects. Best wishes.


Oh I trip to the seaside in all it's vintage glory...
Adore your sweet coat hangers...just so pretty...
And a first aid kit a must with holidays and kids...
Hope you don't need it thou...
Have a wonderful time Luce...


Lucy, reading your blog makes me so happy! I hope you had a lovely holiday!...Big wishes...Lindsey x

Hi Lucy,
I just found your blog this week and I have fallen in love with your work! I am promoting your blog all over the place, as I love your colours and your tutes are so easy to follow. I love your no-sew granny squares so much, it has re-ignited my love for the humble granny and I have started my own snuggly blanket. You can see it on my blog http://mystampingplace.blogspot.com/2010/06/no-sew-granny-squares-blanket.html

Thank you so much! You rock!!



I immediately thought of this post I read on another blog when I saw your hangers...
