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

Hello Lucy

I should just like to say what a wonderful page. Amanda gave this web address and she teaches crochet on Woolly Wednesdays at Thelma Hubert Gallery in Honiton on the last wednesday of each month for any of those who like me would like to craft and chat.
It was lovely to come home and log on to sooooo much colour and simple joys of living.
My work basket has lots of oddments so im off to see if I can squeeze a "strip" cushion out of them.
Keep up the inspirational works

Brightest Bluebell Blessings

I did giggle at the thought of you entertaining the window man in PJs! I work permanent nights so am often to be found in my nightwear at odd times-I am sure the poor man who delivers my Avon catalogue thinks of me as that sloppy woman who lives in her scruffy blue dressing-gown and never gets dressed!I just try to give a big smile and act as if I am wearing designer clothes-but really not sure it works;)

You DO look bright and colorful and what a blessing you must be to the world-worn tired people passing on the street! I love your spots since I am so into toadstools this year.
I hope you are well soon, feeling spry for Easter. It is such a good idea to stay in pajamas all day. I love to do that!
I bet all that throwing up made for extra laundry. Bless your heart.


It is good to just relax once in a while. Your outfit sounded great!(The afternoon walk one, Looked great too).Love the ribbons...hope you feel better soon.

Hello Lucy, this is my very first visit to your Attic and how enjoyable to meet you, your family and friends. Really hope you and Little B feeling more like yourselves today. I have only started to crochet and had googled for a snowflake and up you came so looking forward to making a coffee and getting started, will let you know how I get on. x


Why would you be surprised by a compliment by a Random Stranger ? You DO look great with all these colors ! Very "springy" (if the word exists)
I hope you'll get well soon and we're all impatient to see the bag.


Tell me detail on the lime green coat LOVE IT!!!!!

Who is it made by and where did you get it.. must have.:)

I've adored your blog for years and never commented, don't know why...but I just had to say, I LOVE that brooch. If you posted a tut on it I must have missed it :( but I have pinned it to my pineterest wall so I'll never lose it again. I'd also like to say thank you for sharing your life with the blogaspere, reading it is my special treat at the end of my day, and thankyou for sharing your knowledge too. Your tutorials have taught me so much. When friends admire my crochet I tell them my teacher is a lady I've never meet on the other side of the world.

Sorry you've been feeling poorly- take care of yourself and the little people. We've had so many bugs this half term, and I always feel depressed when I'm all out of my routine. I love reading your blog- I get withdrawal symptoms if I miss it for a bit. It's like a comfort blanket. You write with such honesty, and it feels very real if you get my meaning. Thank you.

Sorry you've been poorly- take care of yourself and the little people. We've had so many bugs this half term, and it always makes me feel gloomy. I hate being out of my usual routine. I absolutely love reading your blog. I get withdrawal symptoms if I miss it for a while!!! It feels like a big comfort blanket which always cheers me up. You are just so wonderfully honest and your blog feels very real, if that makes sense. Thank you. x


Lucy, have you seen this gal's blog? She has a different color esthetic than you, but her creativity made me think of you and your need for a bag made me think of this one she made, that I am definitely going to make, except with longer handles: http://clothogancho.canalblog.com/archives/2011/04/04/20814092.html. There is a free pattern on the web (went and found it): http://www.gosyo.co.jp/img/acrobat/29210/44.pdf

Sad you are feeling ill, because you always make me feel better! :o)

Lindsey Toms

It says you have 100 comments on this post...wow. Maybe you wont get to mine, but if you do I hope you are feeling better. My daughter and her family have all been ill and I live too far away to have helped but now the hols are upon us I will be going to stay for a bit. So to spend your days in your PJ's is just fine :)


Hope you and yours feel better. Enjoy your nice, slow vacation. Wish I could send you the warm weather we're having here. A little too warm considering how early it is.

Anyway, your bright little space here is lovely and I'm glad that someone IRL saw and commented on how bright and cheering you are. Get better soon.


You should cover up your passion fruit plant (with, for example, a water bottle or a transparent bag) when there is frost as your plant is young.
You could also plant a honeysuckle for the scent.


Blogging when you're poorly is true dedication :0) I wanted to let you know that I was so inspired by your post about Caroline's mixed media art and your lovely caravan, that I hot footed it over to her shop and purchased a print - Tangled - which arrived on Saturday morning. I absolutely LOVE it. Thanks for sharing. I hope you feel better soon. Georgie xx


Wishing you better very soon x

Maria Teresa

Que você se restabeleça rapidamente, e que as férias de Páscoa sejam grandes com ou sem pijama não importa, passo por aqui todos os dias. Fica bem. Saudações do Brasil


Lucy, sorry to hear you're not well. Hope you and Little B get better soon. Totally understand the pyjamas and don't worry it's still cold down South, my heating and socks are still on - having curry for tea tonight to heat us up. Must have been a picture sitting there chatting with the window man :) Pictures gorgeous as usual. Sam xx

Andrea at Apples and Pears

Oooo midday and the boy and I are still in our pyjamas! I was feeling quite ashamed until I read your post and am so glad that this is a school hols phenomenon that is not exclusively mine. I hope you are feeling better soon...Spring is here really, it is just having a pyjama day too!!! PS Love the apron! xxxxxxxx


I love your blog, your colors and I nearly was crying when I was reading that you really love to be a mum, and to be a housewife. I think that kind of things are what we miss most in our stressful world. Really beautiful your pictures of the small hands...and your chrochet works. Hope you understand my bad english...


Hope you feel better soon Lucy xxxx


Oh dear Poor Lucy! My toddler and I had the bug too last week, it has totally discombobulated me for days. Hope you wake up tomorrow feel very 'lucyish' and back to your normal healthy self. xxx

Anna Maria

Hello! Whenever I decide to do nothing with my girls (5 and 2 yrs) it is a disaster. I don't know how you succeed to be relaxed and happy and stay at home for 15 hours with 3 children. May be I do something wrong, but when my children have certain activities (also relaxing ones) they behave much better.


Those bugs are horrible, just make you feel so blargh. Stay indoors in your jim jams and apron (my favoured indoor wear!)it's not going to be worth going out if we listen to the weathermen! Can't wait to see what you do with that fabulous ribbon, gorgeous.
