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 Lucy it's been so lovely catching up with all your posts. I have been away from blogging for far too long! I ADORE your hat and loved your Provence posts. You posts have filled my day with colour which is just what I have needed this week! I think I could do with a hat for this weather. I never tire of scarves and wrist warmers but my drawer is getting too full now. A nice hat would work well! ha ha! I have been busy making hot water bottle covers which have come in very handy in this weather. They have been a big hit with the children. I made one today and embellished it with your may roses which look so sweet. It's meant for a present but not so sure I can part with it, so thank you for the inspiration! My youngest wants a rainbow one for Christmas and your colour combinations immediately sprung to mind. I think I may actually be a popular mum!

Good to see life is ticking along well for you at the moment. I'm off to make a cuppa and have another read through your posts. Such yumminess!

Take care

Have just made the triple layer flower and a leaf. I love your tutorials- you 'pitch' them exactly right for me. I have made a few things this year from your tutorials and I. Live them. Thank you Lucy. Can't wait for the French Bower Bird tutorial. Alison


stopping by your blog always brightens my world!

It's all so ordinary, the stuff I do most days as I go about the business of being a mum/wife/creative wotnot.

I definitely desagree!
Your life is very special. Wonderful. A privilege.
Be grateful.
Think so: and if I had not it, how would my life be?
I admire all that you present on the blog, and that makes me very happy. It is not common, nor ever will be!
Sorry my english, I am brazilian and used translate.google.com.br, lol

I don't even know how to crochet, but I read your blog because your celebration of color combination is so delightful! And I find the photos of your home and countryside charming. Here in Michigan, USA I live in a dutch style barn that was built in 1900 which has two levels converted for living and another 20 plus feet above that is unfinished. I find this charming, too. If I do learn to crochet I will be creating your flowers and leaves and maybe some birdies, too.


Aw! You still have summer flowers (!?!) Lovely.

& we wouldn't change you for the world either....


Thanks for letting me gaze out your window, too. xoxo Barbara

Thought you might to take a look at this lampshade!

.....and so to bed. Lovely comforting, satisfying blog post.

(And doesn't your ripple blanket look like a waterfall pouring itself into a rainbow coloured pool on your sofa!)

Lucy @ motherwho

Your usual looks positively blissful to me!


Lovely post as usual, and certainly not boring, your world is so pretty and full of everything that matters. It's simple things like these that brings us pure pleasure. Keep doing what you do and thank you for sharing with us.


...and as usual, we love you Lucy! It's NEVER the same....always beautiful and exciting!!!


Me again, to apologize for leaving off that r.



Hello from New York to you Lucy.

I just wanted to once again let you know what fun it is to visit you site, experience your generosity, and general love of life.



And why should you. Long may you continue to have beautiful weekend like that. ♥ :)
