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

Happy New Year to you and your family, Lucy! You have been such an inspiration with all of your wonderful designs. Since discovering your blog, I have made a ripple blanket, the super flower cushion, hearts, snowflakes and birds. I can't wait to make the Happy Flower, once you find a minute in the day to post the pattern!
Take care and wishing you more wonderful colours in 2012! Emilie x

Hi Lucy
Being a newcomer to your site, just wanted to say a huge thank-you!!!! I recently broke my ankle and the stretch of 4-5 weeks at home, not able to drive etc was weighing heavily.I started to think of what I could do to keep occupied. Remembered crocheting squares for blankets when a young girl so started searching on the internet for patterns. To cut long story short, I found your site and have become completely hooked. Inspired by the 'ripple blanket', managed to persuade hubby to get me to a wool shop and lo and behold, I'm now half way with a beautiful, unique and colourful blanket. I fear it's taken over my life, even though I'm now back at work, I look forward to any spare 15mins to get back to my project. The perfect antidote to busy life and a chance to truly relax. Hope you and your family have a great New Year.

The words 'and he was watching Postman Pat' has just taken me back to when our son who is now 23yrs old, use to love watching Postman Pat, when he was a little fella.
I also saw mention of your blog in The Saturday Age newspaper, it's amazing how widely read blogs are.
Best wishes to you & your family for the New Year.

I love your blog, and the pics you post of your home and your town. I live in the States, and seeing your town makes me feel so cozy! Thank you for sharing all of this with us!


i've decided that quietly creating, including reading about yours, may be god's will for us. thank you for all the ripples.


Love you Lucy.
You've inspired me for lots of crafty things.
New Year is coming!!!

Hi Lucy.. hello from Oregon.. what a nice quiet time you had. I ordered those candles too, I got 2 packs of the white with dots and 2 of the multicolored ones - and I adore them!! I also got the red floral chamber sticks from CK and gave them and a candle to my 2 sisters for Christmas. I kept 2 for myself.

What a wonderful peacetime tranquility. I agree with you...those candles are cute and comforting! I look forward to seeing your bunting.

I just love your blog. I have commented once before, as I have only recently discovered it. However, I have now become hooked (quite literally as I have been crocheting myself for a couple of months) and love it. I find myself checking out your blog daily. I love everything about it, your descriptions, the pictures and especially your lovely colorful home, they radiate warmth and love. I actually live in the ribble valley near Clitheroe and it makes a change to have a Northern blogger!!! Are you anywhere near Skipton and if so have you visited the Fent Shop for material? Keep up the great work and I am looking forward to your blogging in 2012. I wish you and your family a very healthy and happy New Year.

Your blog i fantastic!


I adore your blog, it brightens my day every time I read about you and your goings on.
My wonderful baby (25 and a half) and his beautiful girlfriend are off to India next week at the starts of their 18 months of travelling.
I will so miss them so much... what am I going to do.....make a quilt and a crochet blanket for their return.
Oh and save little penny to go visit them next summer.
Enjoy every moment with your little ones because times goes to quick.
with love

Its great. Best Wishes,, Hahnsmum.. New England , Australia..


Hi Lucy! I really enjoy reading your blog...find myself smiling each time. It's so full of color and creativeness. Your hooky project looks like fun. I'm trying to figure out what to do next - now that the Christmas projects are done.
