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.

Lucy i would love to make a Sweet flower Granny blanket, but i dont see a lesson on this, do you have one. I dont know how to start after making the little picol flower. I think ALL your blankets are just BEAUTIFUL. Les

Just lovely.... I feel a Japanese Flower coming on!


Oh I do remember what that is like being a young mother ... I think that's why you have to be young!
I imagine you are a lovely lovely mother.


we just did the time change thing (day light savings time) here in the States and it's completely thrown me off and I don't have little kids anymore (so really what is my excuse). Going to bed at the same time but waking up an hour later than usual, then walking around all sleepy. Really hoping that I'll get over it soon.
You sound like a wonderful Mom with your Little B ~ I miss those times with my little one (he's 27 now).

And there's my favorite lovely Tapestry Cushion! I love finding it in your pics. It's like playing Where's Waldo! I am cogitating on trying one of my own, different colors of course, hard to duplicate exactly, but it will be my Lucy Cushion when it's done. I have the canvas hemmed, just finishing up a couple of mostly done projects now. Its going to be happening this spring! i will be doing it on 10 mesh mono canvas, in 10 stich (1 inch) blocks, in various Different Brilliant Colors. The difficult part will be trying to manage the colors. I have never met a bright i havent loved, and am unfortunately ambivalent towards greys and browns. I will keep you updated! thanks so much for the inspiration!


I remember those days of total exhaustion . . . they are so worth it though, before you know it the little ones are up and out and you say to yourself? "What just happened? They were just here crawling on the floor!" Hope you get lots of sweet dreams tonight.


hi Lucy must be lovely to spend some qulaity time with little B. i like your new profile picture i can see the scarf you have made and it looks nice, looking forward to the bid reveal. i am having a day off on monday to sit at home and chill and crochet.

Sleep well :)


There is a little hint of the ta dah in you new profile picture lol


Don't get too tired, Lucy. Take same time out if you need to relax and feel springy again. We'll all be here when you return...I for one can't wait to see your ta-dah! x


mmmm...peering at the 'this is me' photo you seem to be wearing a new shawl....clearly it is indeed irresistible!
Now I'm post 55 the waking up in a chair feeling is a familiar one- get more lovely sleep, we can wait to see the shawl in all it's glory ( a bit of a fib there, did you notice?).

Oh yes how I remember falling asleep without realising I had fallen asleep. I would say I actually got more sleep when my children were young, than when I was with my second partner, he snored and would wake me up, perhaps 20 times a night, I worked and looked after a house my three children and his three on weekends. I don't know how I did it. Hope you get some refreshing sleep.

I love your chair with its crochet colorfulness.

Petit Filoux

What a brilliant idea! Think I might create a tab with that kind of information for my projects too! Thanks for the inspiration! And I hope you manage to get some rest in between it all x


Dear Lucy! I have fallen desperately in love with your blog - thank you so much for all the beutiful things you do! I'm not a big craft-person myself - but I feel like I'm starting to become one - at least there is this unbearable urge to become one when I scroll through your pictures and posts! And apart from everything else I love the way your home looks too - and it inspires me greatly too as we have recently moved into an almost empty flat and I'm looking for inspirations everywhere - and your place seems just a perfect example for me! I want to make my home look at least something close to this. Thank you very much for sharing! Best wishes to you and your family.


What a beautiful chair


Take care Lucy; even springs need a little oiling occasionally! so looking forward to the 'ta dah' whenever it comes x


Did you give us a little glimpse of your Japanese flower scarf in your picture?! Can't wait for the big reveal ;)


I hope you get the rest you need. As kids grow up you tend to forget how full on it can be when they're small!!!
Take care.


Can't wait for the ta dah when you get the chance. Hope you get some sleep :-) Love your new picture at the top!


Ah Lucy that's the joy of small children. Severe sleep deprivation! Enjoy your cat naps though.


Hi Lucy, I wouldn't mind sleeping in such a beautiful setting. The cushion is gorgeous. I went to sleep last night at 19h20!!!!!! I was sooo tired of watching a fire the previous night. It started as a controlled fire and went out of hand. And we have a thatched roof!!! i was scared out of my wits as hubby was away on business and me and my 2 kids was alone. I kept thinking what I was going to grab first. What a terrible experience!!!!
Love from Cape Town. xxxxx
