About Me

  • Hello! 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

Lovely! I'm going to have a cup of tea and pretend I'm on your sofa today...instead of at my desk!

I've recently discovered Natalie's lovely paintings too, so colourful and joyful! Sunny here today, hope you're getting it too!xx

I love the edgeing that looks so lovely. I think Natelie must have been inundated due to your linky as her work is so lovely. Yeah spring is nearly here :)


Really like the blanket edging. I've got my first ripple on the go, it's destined to be a cushion cover. So enjoying making it, you're instructions make it easy.

Spotted the first catkins today - hooray, Spring is on it's way!


Your site has inspired me to get back into crochet - the colors are just so beautiful!!


Hi Lucy. Your blog is so colorful and warm, like I imagine your home is. Thank you for sharing your vivid life with us. I am a cancer patient and have a lot of time on my hands so I started crocheting again. I made the cutest bunting based on your instructions. I am going to try some of your other patterns. Thanks again Lucy, you are so wonderful, I look forward to reading more of your blog.

Beautiful!! Congratulations. ;-) Sílvia.


Beautiful!! Congratulations.


The crochet edging is gorgeous, such lovely colours! How did you do the flecks of pink? Are they sewn in afterwards?
I've got the first tete-a-tetes in the house here too, one has flowered already, ohh I love them! Makes me feel as though Spring is coming! Have a happy weekend.

My granny stripe blanket is making me very happy as are my jugs of daffodils,tulips and pots of hyacinth bulbs - oh - I forgot the amaryllis!
Crikey - what a Colourful, Spring Flowery confession I've just made!


I love tete-a-tete, they are so cheerful when in flower. Your blanket looks lovely and cosy :o) Will you be producing the Bower Bird tutorial soon? I'm itching to make one! I still think you could produce a book with all your lovely patterns in :o)


Dear Lucy
I think I need to leave a message now, since your pictures & stories inspiritied me to
a) follow/read a special blog quite frequently including browsing the huge number of links
b) surprise myself by starting to "oooohh" and "aaahhhhh" and smiling and "how wonderful/colourful/lovely/..." after every other post followed by a very strong craving for redecorating my appartement - I'm afraid I need to convince my husband soon -
and c) to follow the ripple: I had some yarn left over from my last year's project (a blanket for my newborn niece). Well, last week I went out to buy some other colours (somehow quite a lot of other colours) and started to ripple every evening, sitting quite happy in my sofa-corner, smiling peacefully when my husband questions my newest handicraft...

I hope, I can show you some pictures soon - for the moment I sooo happy rippling my way through the colours....

Thank you very much & Greetings from Antje

Your edging intrigues and pleases me, your creativity knows no bounds and your color sense gets better all the time, Lucy-love. Happy, skippy colors abound here too, there are pink blossoms already within sight of my seat in the living room. They are delightful.

Thank you for all the inspiration you bring to blogland.

Hi Lucy I really hope you will show us how to get that perfect finished edging. My gosh!!! It is a complete mitered square corner!!


The things which made you happy are such that can really make you smile :) Thanks for sharing, Lucy!
I loved the edging, very nice:) Can't wait to see it whole.
I'm working on a blanket right now, so I feel very excited about how it will turn out.
Have a lovely day!


Ooh! I LOVE your home! ♥♥♥


Such a lovely painting! Can't wait to see the blanket, so very excited! :D xoxo, Jess
