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

So lovely. I love to read your blog. so many colours and so much love. I just adore it.

You know...if I just need to give an "a" and the first page is yours.

And...I'm really thinking of making a blanket. I'm still trying to ....you know. I just made small and easy, super easy projects. And I still have problem with keeping the rows equal. but.....I'm learning.

Thank you.

lovely photos Lucy - particularly liked the stripes on the line. I recently had something similar on my rack...it looked like I was raising a family of Rumplestiltskins!!
I made a 'neat ripple blanket' over the Christmas hols (photo and link to you on my current post) It's known as the 'nipple blanket' as I kept combining the 'neat' and 'ripple' when looking for the pattern!
Thanks for the inspiration as always. It's crochet cold turkey for me now but it won't last..fee x


you most definitely live the colorful creative life!!! love the pic of the longies on the line!!!!!

and inspiration to capture those everyday moments!!!


I really love reading your blog. The colours and your happiness always come through in your photos and writing. I wish you and your family so much happiness in 2013!! Thanks so much for the joy you bring to my life.


Thank you for sharing those lovely images Lucy, and a BIG thank you for the Krups Nespresso machine tip off, I hinted, Santa responded, and I love it! Often think of you as I'm enjoying a daily frothy :o)

Thank you for sharing these colourful photos with us. I often feel melancholy at this time of year but these have reminded me to take joy in simple pleasures. Happy New Year to you & your family xxx


You are so very inspiring Lucy. I have loved these reviews and agree this last one is the best. I love how you capture everyday life so beautifully. I really want to try to do the same this year. Your positivity is amazing. Life is hard work at the moment, getting used to having two children and little H being a rather more tricky baby than Little F was but I really need to try to enjoy every moment more and focus on the positives of which there are so many.

grab the happy stuff with both hands! such a great thought and something we need reminding of often. thank you lucy.


Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! I love that you choose to live in color and simplicity and creativity and gratitude. And that you choose to share that all with us. I will pay it forward today and share your link!


You wrote: " choose to live my days creatively and in full colour, with a huge dash of positive thinking. I celebrate the small pleasures and the little luxuries. I look for the happy stuff, seize it with both hands and enjoy it to the full. I tell myself daily how lucky I am to be living this life, and I am so grateful for all that I have."

This is exactly what a lot of people miss in their life and what I recognize and love in your blog. Happy simple moments...life doesn't have to be complicated to be fulfilling.
Lots of love to you and keeping sharing the positive smile you send to the world!

What a happy, loving home you have. I love visiting your blog and home. Happy New Year.


Your pictures make me smile, seeing the sweet jumble of family life!

I am wondering what crochet hooks you use. I recently bought a 8mm hook (for Big Wool) but the brand available in local shops was a bit cheap and too pointy (it keeps catching on the yarn) and also a bit short. Some of my old hooks are Aero but I cannot find this make now.


Nice photos! I love the colours and your blogs :-)


Lovely - makes me want to go take some photographs!

Wow! That was like weaving thru a rainbow. Just beautiful! There are little things I covet in each photo....


Thank you for sharing. It was lovely to catch up after I've had a bad blogging year. See you again soon x
