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

What joy and colour you bring to the world.



I hope you and the other attic inhabitants had a lovely lively Christmas and that you got to spend lots of the day in your jammies- with the stripey socks on :)


Merry Christmas! I have just recently found your blog through ravelry and I must say I am a huge fan. I love your colors. You just may have inspired me to stray from my drab grays greens and browns.

Wishing you all the best in the year to come!


'...and to know that by some miracle, my words and pictures do reach out into the world and generate little ripples of inspiration, happiness, brightness.'

quoting you here, Lucy.....as I read back thru your blog.....you most certainly do generate ripples of inspiration, happiness & brightness!! I am in love with your blog & have shared it with my mom too. You have inspired me SO much just since I found your blog. My Granny Stripe afghan is coming right along & I'm also working on a pillow cover now thanks to you. Wishing you & your family the happiest New Year from Virginia.



Merry Xmas to you!!!


Merry Christmas to you and your family! Wishing you all the best for the new year....

Magic. Happy holidays from Vancouver.


Although Christmas is now history...I wanted to let you know that a friend turned me on to your blog recently. Your colorful, fun, creative ideas have enhanced my festive mood.
I live in Alabama, US...but lived in the Cotswolds for two years, 26 ago when my husband was stationed there with the US Air Force. I loved every minute of my time there...and remember taking my son on a sled ride on Christmas in the dusting of snow we had.
Thank you for bringing back my happy memories of my cherished time in Great Britain. I am sharing your blogs with my newly married daughter and my daughter in law...who is also a stay home mum of a three year old, Emma and Sophia on the way.
Happiest of Holidays...best wishes in the New Year to my new inspiration...thanks.

Ahhhhh....already feeling a lot better. Just popping by from the hotel lobby in cold rainy Florida. I need my fix today and knew right where to come. Sure how you went with the candy cane sockies to keep those toes warm yesterday. Hey, do those hobbits need any hot cocoa, it still looks mighty cold over there. Stay in, stay jammie-ed up, stay cuddled with family.

Pretty bummed I can't post down here, but looking forward to getting back home in back in the swing of things in the new year.

Can't wait to see you latest goodie. Looking good from the wee-little peek you gave us.

Love the last picture too of the tree lights a swirl, must have been from the buzzing around of the little ones in all their holiday fun.

Sweet hugs,


Happy Christmas to you and your family Lucy. I don't often leave a comment, but I wanted to thank you for your wonderful blog!


I hope you have a really Blessed Christmas.
I'd like to wish you a Happy, the most productive and healthy New Year!


Thank you so much for allowing us to share your world - it is such a generous thing to do. I happened upon your blog quite by accident and what a delight!! You have inspired me to get back into crochet and knitting and I have made lovely new friends as a result when I joined a local knitting and crochet group.

I hope all at No24 had the most wonderful Christmas and I wish you all a very happy, healthy and "hooky" New Year.

Alice and Raymond!!!

Hoping you had a very merry christmas Lucy! Your home looks beautiful... I just had a read through a few posts at once, and was blown away by the colourful wonderment! You are creating so many beautiful memories for your children!
Have a relaxing week before new years....
Do you know, I cannot believe that your canal is frozen after seeing it in all of the other seasons in your blog! Rivers never freeze in NZ because it never gets that cold... I think I would die if I were there, I really would!


Merry Christmas Lucy!


too you soon !


Hope you are having a lovely day Lucy.
Re your fluffy socks - please be careful, I almost fell downstairs this week because I was wearing my fluffy socks and didn't put my slippers on too. Fortunately grabbed the bannister, could have been a disaster so please take care.

Merry Christmas Lucy to you all, You always brighten my day and make it even better than it already is.
