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

I love the butterfly garden block. I have one in a crazy afghan I made a few years ago, it's a butter yellow.

Hi Lucy, I'm sorry to barge in on your serious crochet, but today I came across a cushion that looked like something you might fancy...
(scroll for UK translation)
Just because there's no such thing as too much hooky spotting ;-).
By the way, I really love that Double-Framed Lace block you're working on. And your zippy bag. And your croissant, mmmmm!


Wow - your zip looks perfect! I'm way too intimidated by zips just yet and my sewing machine and I aren't on speaking terms right now. Maybe someday!

What a gorgeous blanket x


Ah, so the Attic is where our sun went... ;-)
That wreath is gonna look lovely ! Very curious about the result :-)
I share your High Hopes for May.. it's been too grey and cloudy for my likes lately. Though your blog always adds colour ! And to not let myself be too affected either, I just treated me on some Very Colourful nailpolish ;-)


The light on the blanket is marvelous.

I so love everything you make, my house is so lucyfied now. I used too have so matching and unified, but now all colorful and lucy style and so very happy. Thanks you are the best-

Love your project bag!!!
And love the gray square - It reminds me of a lovely trivet my mom used to have on her stove.

Hi Lucy lovely work again. I love the idea of the bag, great for taking out and about when on the move and want to take something to do. can't wait to see the finished wreath. have fun take care vina x

Look at you go! You might want to friend Mrs. Galloway on Ravelry because she made what she calls her Lark Rise blanket and your squares remind me of it! VERY cool!
And YES, you put that zip in expertly! It looks so fine!
I wish you many more days of crocheting in the pockets of time that devoted motherhood affords!


Oh, your "ProjectBag" is so beautiful! It's lovely looking fabric and useful for any chrochet projects :O)


as you can tell from the fact I posted twice, oops! Sorry!!


Hi Lucy, I am new to crochet and a friend recommended your blog. It's fab- you are an inspiration and I love all your projects! Those flowers are beautiful. Keep up the lovely work!

Ps I've just started my own blog to share crafty ideas with like minded people and would love it if you'd take a look- I'm new to blogging too!

Love the bright project bag and the pretty new lacy crochet too! Thanks for popping over to see me the other day and your lovely comment. I would love to see an Attic 24 quilt, that would be so wonderful!! Hope you have a happy, sunny crafty day.

Hi Lucy,
I would love to chat with you because I have something great to share with you. In one of my earlier comments I told you that you have inspired me to start my own blog and try my hand at one of your blankets. Well,(drum roll) I have done both! Do have a look at my blog http://crochetkari.blogspot.in/2012/05/i-love-lucy.html where you have a special mention. There is also a sneak peek at my blanket (wip). Do let me have your comments and suggestions.

I adore your hooky homemade bag!!! I been thinking about one those myself(er making one). I can't wait to see your wreath or your new blanket!!! Very excited!!!


I have been following your blog since December when I found the pattern for the Crochet Bag. I just want to say that reading your posts and seeing all of your colorful projects really brighten my day! You are an inspiration! (I love the Project Bag!)

idiosyncratic eye

Yay, another zip! :)


Your blog always brings a smile and some color into my day. I appreciate you!


Hello Lucy! Thank you for sharing, I think I'll make a mini zippered bag because it's useful and I'll learn more about zips. I like very much the first square "Double-Framed Lace" and Cygnus is nice too. Your wreath will certainly be wonderful. It's a good idea to use polystyrene wreath!
See you soon!

Kathy Knight

Absolutely love the way you mix colors. So cheerful and yummy. Love the bag too!

FYI - Many word processing programs have a function to "find and replace" text. To change the US pattern to UK, you tell it to find the dc's and replace them with Treble Crochet. Just a few clicks of the mouse.


The pattern on the white square is so simple, yet vibrant...there's an illusion of motion there, I think. And your new bag is just gorgeous!

Jess Sellars

Lucy HELP!!! I've just started a blog and have no idea how to get it out there other than my facebook page. All help gratefully received. Thanks so much. x
