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.

Ooooohhhhh I LOVE the little beauties !! LOL !! xxxxxxx


Hi Lucy :) I've just discovered your blog at the same time I started learning to crochet. So, let's just say I'm hooked, ha ha! I'm already eyeing off your granny stripe blanket after I've finished the granny square blanket I'm working on. Such soothing work! I may have to whip up a couple of hearts for my 3 yo daughter...she will adore them.


I loved this project so much that I had to make one too!


I never fail to come away from your fabuloso blog feeling cheered up and ready for anything, you are an inspiration and bring lots of colour to my life.

Oh gorgeous! This is just what I need to do something beautiful and easy this week - thank you :)


As I am happy to see me walk on your colorful pages!
A nice blog very soft and creative! J "tries" the hook and limit myself to say "ridiculous" little flowers that are never the same elsewhere!
So I say a big thank you for your tutorials and I'll try ... something!
I'm leaving you this comment on a previous ticket, you risk the "find" double ..
See you soon, Nedj


Lucy, very much inspired by you I have just completed my first crochet blanket - a granny stripe. The pattern is yours the colours are inspired by the Irish landscape. If you can spare a minute I would be delighted if you took a peek. X


Lovely lovely! I love the little hearts, in all their colourful prettiness. Love reading your blog too, I just hadn't stopped to say so before. Thank you for sharing these lovely bits and pieces with us!


It is again really lovely. You always choose colors which make me think about easter. Thank you so much for your lovely blog ! xx

OH! These make me want to learn to crochet... RIGHT NOW!! I love them! Thanks for sharing!


Thank you for posting such wonderful project ideas. So very cheerful and colourful!


Perfect as always. Your teeny tiny hearts are so wonderfully colorful and perfectly springy! Oh and I just had to visit Meme Rose. I love it there as well. I have been working a granny square blanket much like the one I saw there with the white border. Only 11 squares to go. 255 done! It amazes me how many blankets you have finished! It has taken me over a year and I'm still working away at it. I know it will be well loved when it is finally done. Love love love that photo of your twiggy project on your colorful stool. Perfect! And as always amazingly inspiring. :)


absolutely love your tiny hearts and your tree is a truly inspired way to display them - looks like spring is breaking out all over the room!


I love coming to this blog. It is the happiest place on earth!

Absolutely lovely! I especially like the bunting! #

these look super cute, and quick and easy! i might make them for table decorations at my wedding (or reusable confetti..!)


Awwww, they are just adorable!


I came over to visit for a dose of colour to cheer me up on a disappointing grey Sat afternoon, and I wasn't disappointed here! Thanks Lucy the heart tree is fab :)

About that last post? Umm . . . Just found the answer. Thank you.
So now you know I'm a bit ditzy and could probably spend a bit of time doing my homework - just like my teachers always told me.
But yours still looks better than mine. Oh, well. More homework.

I just popped across the road from 'Little Cotton Rabbits' and found your cheery, inspiring blog. There is definitely something about lovely English ladies and your delicious color palettes and designs.
Do you have any tutorials on how you join your hooky pieces? I have been hooking for over 20+ years and have never been happy with the way my joining comes out. Please let me know your secret.


Can't wait until my school semester is over so I can have more time for playing with patterns like this. I don't have any definite ideas yet, but you have inspired me, so I'm sure I can come up with something.


Thankyou Lucy, your tutorials are perfect for me as I can't follow a pattern,they look so lovely on your spring twigs...I am literally sitting on my hands to stop myself from having a go right now :)
Have a lovely weekend

love Jane x x x x x


I love your blog, I check it almost every day. I was looking at your list of favorite blogs. May I suggest one that's fun? The Purl Bee. Absolutely lovely, knitting, crocheting, sewing. Take a gander!!!
