About Me

  • Hello! 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 just thought of a name for your blog: " addicts in the attic"... Can't wait for some more hooky inspiration...

Lucy you always make me feel happy. I love your ta da's, colour therapy and chatter. Shirley


I have never seen chinese lanterns before! Lovely! I have just bought some seeds on ebay, lets hope they'll grow for me!


Ah, another delightful post from you Lucy! You're spoiling us, you know that, right? Your mantel is lovely. I have to say that aside from the gorgeous flowers(?) my eye was drawn to the beautiful Russian stacking dolls. I don't know if theya re truly Russian but that'sd what we call them as my daughters each have a set from their Great Grandparents. And they came from Russia - so there you go.

I also love your pretty yellow teapot. I feel about teapots and teacups the way you do about the lovely driftwood art - inspired and heart happy.

Looking forward to the hooky fest! Oh, and please let it be the bright pink that you are giving the heave-ho...I am always wrong, it would be nice to be right for a change!
LOVE your chinese lanterns. The flowers that you can buy in England are so beautiful!


Both the Chinese lanterns and your hook work are beautiful!


Love Chinese Lanterns! Your mantel looks so happy. Giggly happy about the weekend post!!! And believe me, after spending this entire week sick with strep throat and an ear infection, I am REALLY looking for things to be happy about! Hope you have a fantastic Friday doing all your happy Friday things!


Yes!!! Very excited for your color post. I am hoping to learn a bit about selecting colors. I so need help in that area. I want to start a large granny stripe blanket in pretty girly, bright and festively fun colors, but I don't know how to start choosing.
I don't want to end up with another half finished project because I hate my color selection.

I love the Chinese lanterns. Never seen them before. I saw a pattern for Russian dolls a few days ago and thought they would be fun. Seeing how nice yours turned out I am going to have to make some. Can't wait for the yarn post this weekend or next weeks tadah fest.


What beautiful hooky happenings!!! At least the dolls! Can't wait to see the rest.

Oh, I just LOVE your driftwood cottage - it's so beautiful!! Your little dolls look fab too! I'm really looking forward to your post all about the yarn and colours btw! :)


Wow - Chinese Lanterns - that brings back some memories - I loved them as a kid. Wonder if we can get them in New Zealand?
Love your driftwood cottage and can't wait to see more of the baboushka's (hope I've got that right...russian dolls!)


Those lanterns look like crepe paper, they are beautiful. I do wonder if they come in any other colours??

OK, the truth is, I'm here this late because I was hoping for a yarn update. The suspense is killing me!!!


Love the flowers it's been ages since I have seen them! Adorable driftwood cottage and your own 24 on the door with dotty / stripey laundry n a boat...too cute. Love all your work and the little Russian dolls are so sweet. I can't wait to see what colors you have chosen to keep replace ...lol... yes I am not only color addicted but to you blog as well. Love reading your posts much better than the local news !!
Have a lovely happy color filled day.


Thank you so much for sharing such a happy photos and I enjoy the way you write!
The cheerful orange flowers remind me of my grandma-during the summer you see many of them in Japan. You can make a whistle with the flower: kind of hard to make one though-my garndma taught me how to make it and who also taught me how to crochet! Thank you so muc for the lovely blog always!

What beautifully vibrant flowers Lucy. Sunshine in your room for sure, lucky lucky you :D The cottage is very sweet. A blog to explore soon I think. Looking forward to the upcoming ta-daaahing with excitement.
Love to all

Dear Lucy Chinese lanterns,I keep meaning to grow some of those myself.
Must put them on my gardening list. The driftwood cottages well I have to admit to being rather jealous. I have seen them and thought I would love one. Have to put that on my Christmas list. And the Russian dolls,I have the Nicky Tench book so why haven't I made any? No excuse!
Looking forward to your crochet filled post. xx


I love chinese lanterns, they are so pretty and autumny :o)

Your little russian ladies are cute too.
I saw some driftwood cottages and boats when I was down in Devon, so I'm just gonna pop over to that blog and have a nose, as I thought they were so sweet :o)

Have a lovely weekend Lucy.
Looking forward to your hooky-fest.


ohh the colours... even a little rainbow of candles.. and your Matrouskas/Babushkas are so gorgeous.. I really hope you are going to share a pattern linky.. Please don't keep us waiting too long for the Ta-Dah-fest..the weekend was looking dull until I read your post..:)x


You always make me smile. :)


Making some little babushka dolls are on my list of Things To Do. Now that I have seen yours I am all inspired again.
xXx Helen


Beautiful mantel!


I come here to cool off. I wish it were feeling autumnal, still 100F/40+C where I am.

Those Chinese laterns are pretty.


Lovely! I believe you do need to be careful with the Chinese Lanterns around children who still put things in their mouths. You may want to keep them away from Little B just in case.


Love the pretty vases, love the cottages & adore the lanterns, a sweet post, brings a smile to my face :D
