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

Just wanted to give you a shout from the valley of the sun, great information. Much appreciated.


I'd love to know where you got the metallic paper chain strips from or the paper itself, they are lovely!


Lucy!! In Buenos Aires, Argentina, at this moment, the temperature is 32.8ºC. Very, very hot!! I need some snow!!
I love your blog, I'm learning how to crochet with you, thanks a lot!!
Hugs and kisses,


it was funny to read about my country in your blog :-) "mini pom-pomok" is actually the plural of the word in Hungarian, the singular is "mini pom-pom"

I love your blog and your pictures, you manage to show every simple thing in some sort of a wonderful way, it is a joy to look at your pictures :-)

merry Christmas in the attic!

Dear Lucy, thankyou for your comment on my photo, this baby has given me joy and a reason to take my mind off my illness. I have sooo missed coming to the K.N. with Maureen but I will be back as soon as I feel well enough. Hope you and your lovely family enjoy the holiday period and I hope to be back on track soon. Sending love to everyone. Ann xxx

I just had to tell you that your blog is, sorry to sound cliched, so, so inspirational- I love your use of colour, your creative and straightforward patterns and selfless sharing of your designs! I also love the way you write, you should consider getting some of your designs published as a book! I'd buy it! I've been making a granny stripe blanket, some of your crochet snowflakes, birdie decorations, some stars and I would love to make all of the other patterns one day! If only I could find the time. Anyway, thank you and hope you have a lovely, joyful and restful Christmas and new year.
Best wishes, S.


What fantastic idea all those lovely colours

Just wanted to share my Lucy inspired stripy blanket check out the triangular border just like on your cushion. I created that border because the blanket reminded me of a circus big top


I love all of your decorations, i cant wait to make things like this for Eid next year with my little one who will be 2 and a half by then God willing.

Thank you for your wonderful Blog! It has reinspired me after my mojo went walkabout earlier in the year! I have even uploaded my first 2 efforts to the flickr photo pool! Merry Christmas to all!!

Thank you so much for your wonderfully colourful blog. I love checking to see what new project you are creating.

I have made your Christmas stars to hang on friends' trees, and your circular bag twice (one smaller one for a young friend) with plain bases and handles and matching variegated sides.

Your imaginative decorations are stunning.

Here in NZ we are looking forward to the warm sunny holiday season, which doesn't have the same atmosphere as that of the northern hemisphere.

Best wishes

Hi Lucy,
I've been following your blog for a while and I love it. Merry Christmas and regards from Barcelona, Catalunya.


Oh, I love it! the pom poms, snowflakes and buttons!!! very cute!

Kathy Baratta

you are so blooming clever Lucy (-: Love love love the garland.


I want to come over and play. I love your pom pom garland, so cool.


I am stunned at how lovely these are Lucy and how very creative you've been with your decorations! You are the best decorator I've seen so far this year! xx


Oh dear - after seeing yours I don't think sticking our snowflakes to the window with blu-tac is really going to cut it :)


These quietly creative days are so precious - especially at this time of year. If you have a sewing machine, you can zip through those paper snowflakes lickety split. Much faster than hand stringing. And if you use white thread in the bobbin and coloured on top, you can make your own candy cane striped string too - magic!
Your house is looking so festive and even more cheery than usual!


the colourful pom pom garland is my favourite. I used your instructions to make crocheted snowflakes and have made a decoration to mark the 12 days of Christmas. Thanks for the inspiration.


Love the color, poms, and foil chains. Snowflakes too---it all makes me smile. Your kids are so lucky to have you for a mom!

I love everything you have done, but especially the snowflakes. The little people have done fabulous!

You are such a great mom! The decorations look so nice! I'm sure little "B" loves just looking at everything! Wishing you & your family~
Merry Christmas & a Blessed New Year!


Hello Lucy, just wanted to wish you and your family a wonderful holiday. I'm so glad to have found your blog around this time last year, you've brought many hours of enjoyment and inspiration to me. You have a wonderful gift and I thank you for sharing it! Best to you all and your little peeps.


The pompomness is fabulous Luce, I love the garland xxxx


Hi Lucy.
From time to time I take a look at your blog and I think that if people got themselves busy with "the little joys of life" as you call them there would be no place for greediness and hostility, wouldn't there?
Once again you surprise me with your creativity. I wish to you as well as to your readers that the Light of Christ fills each and everyone's soul with joy, hope and infinite love.


In one word Beautiful!!!
