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.

Hi Lucy!!!!
As always a pleasure reading your posts!!!!! you are an inspiration to every one who loves colors and cool stuff!!!! Thanks for all your great ideas!!!!

Greetings from Cancun, Mexico..... I know it´s weird tropical weather + crochet XD


Hi Lucy! I've been reading your blog for awhile now, but this is the first time I'm commenting. I just wanted to tell you how much I love your photos and your writing. I love how colorful your blog is, and the wonderful, crafty things you share with us. Thank you!


Hello I am a friend of Amanda at Amanda Makes and she suggested I visited your blog! Its is gorgeous I will be following! I am about to start crochet again after over 20 years of not doing it, your creativity is inspiring! Please visit me


It is nice to see you back and feeling better.
Love the pics!!XOXO


Hello sweet Lucy! It's very nice to see you in this little spurt of activity. I wanted to credit you for an amazing discovery I've made...COLOR. Seriously, I've just discovered that working with color, either coloring pictures, planning palletes for quilts, just fondling yarn, whatever, anyway, it stimulates my brain here at work, helps me concentrate and focus, and has gotten me through some pretty sticky wickets of complicated issues. I credit you because, well, just because you're you and you're COLOR and you inspire me. Now if you could just help me explain to my boss and staff that in fact "Yes, colored pencils, crayons, markers, fabric scraps and yarn ends ARE an absolutely necessary part of my accounting job" that'd be great! hugs and kisses and love to you and the family.


Hello Lucy,

I just want to thank you for all your wonderful tutorials. What a lovely lady you must be to show us how to do all these beautiful projects. You are pure inspiration and have opened up a whole new world to me. i never realized crochet could be so exciting. Thank you thank you thank you.

Blessings Gail

I wont be able to come to K.N. for awhile as my mum has not been well, but as soon as she able to go back home (a long way) I cant wait to come again. Have a lovely holiday. Love Ann xx


Lovely lovely post. I thought you were going to make a princess tower/castle with those tubes for a minute. Now there's an idea. I'm thinking of sticky jewels and foils and paper and glue and ribbon. ho hum.. xx


I'm glad you're finding some "me" time and I hope Little B passes through this stage quickly! Your home is lovely don't be down, but I'm sure you can find ways to make it even lovelier.



lovely post Lucy, loving all that you are up too. Lots of comfy time and down time....something we all need from time to time! Hope your next holiday is relaxing and enjoyable! xoxo Robin


I love your weblog, and so, today, i added it to my favourites. Succes!


Hope you had a lovely sleep. Oh, I feel for you about Little B's teething. My little Mirabella is teething as well and when she is here with me she has been quite the little Miss Cranky. Love her to bits, though!!! Your cuppa looks delcious. And your flowery crochet is lovely as usual, dear Lucy. Your book looks like a wonderfully cozy read too, especially before bed. (makes for good dreams) Happy you are enjoying these waning summer days in your comfy pjs. Take care!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Muse of The Day

With children in the house, getting creative things accomplished seems like a miracle sometimes. I take those little miracles when they come and realize that my children are the little miracles that fill up the rest of my time. Carolina


Oh great post as always. Sadly my boys re grown men now and no grandkids on the way yet!..lol
I love the look of the sweet granny flower you are doing, will you be doing a tut for it at all?
Love Love your blanket, looks lovely in your connievan.
Just waiting on some more wool to come before i start another, I did one for a king size bed and have run out of wool ( 281 foundation chain !! ) was hoping the last lot would come today but it never :(

Have a chill out time.

You really are an inspiration Lucy, if you wrote a book I'd would be first in the cue!

you are a lucky girl to be able to sleep so early. My hubby come home only after 10.00 and so clearing up and going to bed is around 11.15
But i never like to sleep early i would prefer to sit up and so something after finishing my household work.


I think we all feel this kind of feeling at the moment from one thing and another. I feel very pooped out at the moment. Trying to find any time for 'me' is hard, so stealing tiny weeny moments if I can, just to sit and look at a jug of flowers, or to manage to get a whole cuppa drunk in one sitting is the biggest treat ever!!!!!!!!

I ♥LOVE♥ that book! I have it by my bedside. I often just look at the front picture, close my eyes and imagine myself sitting in that gorgeous pink plump sofa! Ahhhh to dream a little! Would be annihalated in my house, so I will keep it safe in my head!

Have a wonderful rest of a week! xxxxxxx


Thank you for another post Lucy, I wish I could still be making things with my son, enjoy those moments Lucy my boy is now seventeen and sadly the makey days are long over.


I look forward to seeing the tube family!

Glad you're enjoying the relax-y week! Hope you have a great holiday!


My kids are back tomorrow. I'm sad and happy at the same time! Love the short-and-sweet posts. Keep them coming xxx


Charming post Lucy you now have it sussed! ♥ Yay! trying out the heart thing x

Oh Lucy, just when I thought you had slowed down these delightful bloggy posts, I pop in today to find you have managed another one. And that always makes me happy!! I lurve to read about your life in the north of England, your growing family and your hooky inspirations.....the colours light up an otherwise pretty boring day spent studying on this laptop here in Australia.
Sounds like you are having a great summer holiday, relax and enjoy and I hope those teeth arrive sooner rather than later. xx
