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've been inspired by your blog. Thanks for sharing all your delightful patterns and sweet thoughts. I can't wait to start making crochet flowers.
By the way I love your colour schemes - they are so 'happy' :)

Beautiful and inspiring blog, I copied the recipe for oaty biscuits, and I hope to make some in the morning, thanks.

Hello! I recently discovered your site in my search for something new to crochet (I taught myself a few months ago and trying to expand my skills)! I love the very clear instructions you posted for the 'neat ripple pattern'!! Only took one try and viola!! I had it! Thank you so much! I can hardly wait to get a comfy blanket started! Your pictures are lovely and you surround yourself with so much color! Your house must be such a joy to be in! Looking forward to discovering more on your blog!

Very nice countryside! I feel a little... jealous... Hmm... no, not jealous ;) The view from my room's window is also quite nice :) Best wishes from Poland! :)

Although I have never been to England, I want to live where you live! It is beautiful.

Hi Lucy, I am so happy to have found your blog! I felt right at home! Love all the colourful things you make and your view too. I love a mountainview, luckily I have one too, but mine's in the south of Spain where I'm living in a small cottage with my husband and two daughters. I will definitely 'visit' you soon again, thanks for sharing all you share.

How lovely to have a visual reminder of a year gone by! And yes, it seems like each year goes by more quickly than the last.


Lovely pictures, peaceful attic...

Hey Lucy, there's an award for you at my blog... please stop by and see it!



Lucy... Feb 2010, the zigzaggy blanket, how do you do the little self-coloured squares please. Try as I might, mine end up round!
