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.

Hope your feeling better, and snuggling up in front of your fire x

It is also good to stay in your home and do some household chores or create some DIY home decorate which also add spice on your home.


Just discovered your site. Love your colorful beautiful crocheting and everything else you share. Thanks a bunch. YOu've inspired me.



wow :D that couch looks lovely and snuggly.


Hope you feel better by now. I agree, a warm cosy home is the greatest luxury to me


Hope you are ok and feeling better soon. So much is going around and kids can carry it home from their schools and such. Thoughts are with you and your family get better soon and Blessings to you all.


Hope you feel better soon. I've just discovered your blog and am "Hooked" :)

I'm currently making a bunting for my home using your pattern. Thanks for sharing. Its so fun to add little handmade items here and there especially colourful ones.

Can't wait to see what you're up to next!!! :)



Hi Lucy,
I hope your feeling better soon and home is a wonderful place to be. I've been lurking at your place for awhile. Looking at all your hooky things and admiring them. I've used one of your tutorials and wanted to let you know it worked. I've finished my Hexagon Blanket. I wanted to come by and thank you for the awesome tutorial you gave. Thank you so much for all the wonderful hooky ideas and help. Have a great day!

Hi Lucy,

I hope you are feeling better. I also had a day in yesterday by the coal fire. Its the best medicine of all. Thank-you so much for your warm and loving blog. I've had a really difficult 18 months and it was your blog that kept me going through it. I cannot thank you enough for the comfort and hope it gave me during a really emotionally challenging time. It also encouraged my newly found love of crochet.

I've linked to two of your lovely projects in my blog recently, and I've also published two photos.
If you are not happy with it, please, tell me in the comments and I'll remove them :)
I really like all you make! :)

I have made your curry recipe twice now. Delicious. The best I've ever made. I made a "double load" last time, and it's true - it does taste better second time around. Thanks for that and feel better soon. Love and bests.


Hello, I'm from Russia. I read your every post, but I did not write any comments, because I'm afraid that my English is not good. But today I realized that I'm waiting for your new post, so I decided to write a comment. I want to say that I love your blog. As already mentioned here by someone else: your blog is very inspiring!


It was -55F here over the weekend...so I commiserate on wanting to stay in an snuggle down. Hope you are well soon. It has been such a joy to find your blog. You have brought wonderful color into my cold white winter. Cheers!


I've just came acroos your site and love it-you have so many wonderful things here-and a cozy looking home!

I hope you are feeling better soon. I absolutely love reading about your life in England and wondering what it would be like living there myself. I live in Houston, TX and would LOVE to have bitter cold weather. It would be nice to cuddle up next to a warm fire and knit or crochet. Oh well, the grass is always greener on the other side. ;-) Feel better soon.


I guess we're all feeling the same way lately. I'm not wishing to feel under the
weather but I would love a long alone day to sit and have a fire, crochet, and a movie. Hope you feel better soon.

Amen! I totally agree! Home is definitely where the heart is! I loved how you put it - staying home is a luxury - yes indeed it is! :O) I, too, have had a few days like yours, battling the fever etc and did the same today and I loved how you JUST GOT ON WITH IT! That gave me a chuckle as I had to just get on with a few things like that today, too, but was so glad when it was over and the rest in front of the fire with a little bit of order about me was heaven. Hope you are feeling better soon!!!! Loved the picture of your bulbs above the hearth with your can cozies all decorated!!! LOVE them! Been eyeing tuna cans in the pantry... the fever must be lifting! ha! ;o)

I hope you are much on the mend. I have so been enjoying your blog. I started reading back from the beginning in the archives and now I see that the monthly dates of the archives are not there. I do hope you will restore them as I have enjoyed reading and seeing the blog evolve from the beginning.


Hi Lucy hope you are feeling better now. Just wanted to bother you with questions, sorry. Have you ever crocheted any clothing? And have you had any crochet problems? I have just made a hat following a pattern from a book I got for Christmas. It's not coming out like expected. I'm quite new to crochet and was looking for some wisdom.

Thank you for your beautiful blog. It gives me so much inspiration.


I loved your cozy pictures!!!


It is so good to stay at home, doing something creative!
I love your back loop stich (the one you used for tins covers) and I have a little question about it : is it a way to do it for lines and not rounds? How must we do "the return" of each row? (sorry for my english!)
If you may make a tutorial for this, it would be wonderful!
Thank you so much and good crochet! :)


How lovely to be at home in the warm and not have to slog out inthe cold to work


I hope you feel better soon Lucy...Home is the ultimate comfort.


I love your home. It looks like the perfect place to be, *especially* when you're not feeling tip-top. Hope you get to feeling better. Also, loving the progress on your latest blanket!
