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

Oh boy, I LOVE the addition of ribbon! Whenever I read your posts, I want to run to my craft stash and get busy... most unfortunate, as I've just publicly declared on my blog that I will be cleaning and organizing the space. But I also said I would sew something fun; I have a sneaking suspicion it is going to be a ribbony cushion! (Credit and a linky will be given to you, of course!)

My Homespun book is on it's way! :D

The colours are so bright and invigorating! I've often tried to make my own but always struggle with the zip. I dare not use the machine as it's too fast so I do the zip by hand but always muck it up!


Gorgeous, love them! You could make a patchwork pencil case for your Little Lady - bet she'd love that - now that you're so good with zips!

They are gorgeous ... love the learning journey ... it is like that every time I get my sewing machine out, and always adds to the feeling of success :)

Love your cushions and fabrics you used! They are perfect 'Lucy' colors! :-)

Your creativity is endless, Lucy and your use of colors is magical!


Hey Lucy, I just tried to reblog this article for my blog http://oddsockworld.typepad.com/my_crazy_odd_sock_world/but all I could get was a paragraph and no photo.......I know you're busy busy, but could you give me any idea how to do this as I would love to feature the article :)) your inspiration is amazing


I liked the first cushion you did very much, but I will have to say the second with that little extra oomph makes me want to make one for my very own couch!!!! You always come up with the neatest stuff!!!

Lucy, you inspired me to get my craft room put together this weekend and to get my sewing machine back out. My husband is in the Navy, and we finally bought a house after 19 years of marriage and 11 moves. The room has been used as the construction/storage room as we were painting and doing molding etc. It is at least cleaned up and "stuff" is out. Once school is out and I have some time, the needle just might start moving again!!! You are inspiring! Your writing is marvelous. You should write a book on home decorating!

They're so vibrant, I love them. And congrats on getting to grips with zips...


Always so much beauty in colour on your blog...love your cushions and the bright, cheery fabrics...look lovely up against the sofa and crochet ;0)x


Hi Lucy,
I´m reading your blog since at least 2 years and I always enjoy it! I´d like to help you a little to make things easier with zips and therefor I send you a link where it is explained very well. I hope it will make zip-things much easier for you! :-)
All the best for you, Love,
Ulrike from Bavaria


Beautiful cushions. They look great on your sofa and break up all the crochet and stop it being too much. Definitely make more for the house. So glad you are enjoying your fabric and sewing. Crochet is great but so is fabric. Love them both.


wow these are fabulous lucy- and will go great in connivan, well done you! x


Oh Lucy those cushions are fab and it's very clear that you do have 'your colours' and very gorgeous they are too! Have to say I'm pretty impressed with your zip work, like you they are NOT my favourite thing I shall check out those tips and maybe be brave and get stitching myself!

Very adorable stuffs. I love the colorful idea as well as the design of the fabric. Very lovely!


Such beautiful colourful cushions you are so clever! You now just need the rain to stop so you can go away in Connievan!
