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.

That was to be an "attack"....not an attach. Aaargh!


I had the same attach today....MUST.CREATE. with fabric. I stole my time in 20 minute increments, in between other things. Can't wait to see what you created!


I sooo feel for this! I've just completed my latest hooky blanket that shouldn't have taken any time really but has actually taken nearly 2 months due to a lack of 'open windows'! I love my time with my baby though so I'm not really complaining :)

You can find my blanket on my blog if you like as I've just posted it and I've credited your joining tutorial as it revolutionised my life! :-D

Can't wait to see your new creation! xxx


It happens to me all the time and I only have one son! Love the combinations of fabrics!


Wonderful cheery bright colours can't wait to see the finiished creation.I too have a fear of all things to do with putting in a zip lol.Been to quilting tonight we had a great time.hugs x


Lovely fabric!!! I would love to try handmade fabric thingies ... I know when you are inspired you are determined. Those "windows" are great but few around here. I sit here typing with my left hand and my three year old princess asleep in my right. It is now 6pm. Dinner not ready. Oh well, i enjoy the moment. I only wish i had my crochet project... in the other room sitting unattended. Till then i will stay tuned on your new creation....


Whatever you make, I know it will be beautiful!


Do tell where you got those beautiful pink and blue fabrics with the big roses on the right of the picture. They are gorgeous!


A pillow cover, maybe? Can't wait to see your ta-da moment. ;-)


Good for you making such good use of your 'windows'! Looking forward to your ta-dah on this one! :)


You have lovely fabrics! Looking forward to seeing what it becomes! I know all about taking those precious windows of opportunity!

Crochet with Raymond

beautiful! I am so excited to see the final result, those gorgeous colours are a balm for my soul!

OOoh, best of luck cracking zips in a small window of opportunity! I avoid them like the plague - and end up making twice as much trouble for myself in coming up with alternative 'closure' solutions.

Looking forward to seeing the finished article(s)!


Looks lovely Lucy - can't wait to see the finished article.

Truly Myrtle

Oh, I just know the feeling! I am forever catching 5 minutes here and there. It certainly does feel a bit frenzied at times :)
This little stripy number looks a little like the needlecase I've just made...a colourful extravaganza!


Looks good!

Karen Hillier

emmie and emma

Just started following your lovely blog, I soo remember those creative windows of opportunity when my daughter was small...gorgeous colours, good luck with finishing Emmax

Deco Cat

Gorgeous fabrics, looking forward to seeing what you have created.


I work best under pressure too! Even though our 3 are all grown up I still only have 'windows' - an hour most days when I get home from work, usually. Can't wait to see what your patchwork will become. I finished 2 quilts last week which was so exciting - love quilts, hate zips - you're so brave!


Love your fabrics, can't wait to see what you are making, I'm sure you'll master the zip
Just wanted to say how much I love visiting your blog and reading about your daily activities, it always cheers my heart to see all the lovely colourful goodies you share


Oh what fun! I love sewing! I very seldom have windows for creativity in the day. I must stay up late while the kids are sleeping in order to do anything.


Lucky creative windows.... I know these very well too, and they're always so very welcome!!!!

Looks yummy!Can't wait to see the finished project.I remember those frantic days well,still have some.The key is organized kits of projects to finished,if you have a wee spot to leave it all set out would be even better.Hope you find some more "frantic time" soon ;).Good luck.
