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

Yeah April is the month of the house, so busy in organizing both indoors and outdoors stuff, but when you surpass everything, it is so overwhelming to look them finished with an out standing beauty.


Wow, I absolutely love the wreath in the top left corner. Are you going to post a pattern for it?


OOOhhhhhlala!! can you tel me where you got that wavy multi-color chandelier??? it is exactly what i have been looking fro in my sewing room!!!

I know what you are about to go through with your renovations, we are just about to build our own house!! Very excited but it is daunting as well. Love your monthly mosaic's, just cheers me up on these yukky days. Are they easy to do?
Good luck


I will follow you always do not write almost never,
I wanted to say that I have mentioned in my post http://lecosedimysa.blogspot.com/2013/04/super-sweet-blogging-award.html
for an award that they gave me and that it deserves too! passes to see and accept the prize if you like! hello!


Blimey! Excitement upon excitement- often things work out that way! Here's to a more 'outside and unsnuggly' April...well, second half of April...

I have just found your blog site after teaching myself to crochet thanks to YouTube and am now totally addicted and so inspired by what you create and your willingness to share. Don't stress about the renos - ours was such a pleasure to be part of. The process is important - the same as one of your gorgeous projects evolving. It wouldn't be the same, or as satisfying, if you we're just presented with the end product.


Yes, March was an indoor month for us, too - we still had lots of snow and it was so cold. It felt more like it was January. But now all of a sudden we have spring and everything is bursting into life. We had our first hike, our first long bike-ride, the first picnic and first time in our garden all now in April. :-)

I love how the sun is shining into your living room! So bright and happy!


During the times when my late husband and I had work done on our home, along with the various building experts, we would keep a good divorce lawyer on call!!
Somehow however, we always made it through.


I just love the flowers you have in your home. So cheerful. You make me want to have my garden growing so much.


I'd like to wish you good luck with renovation of your house. Such a tough job it is! I just renovated my shop and still trying to recover from the hard work and the stress. Best wishes. Gaia.

Good Lord! I will buy that wreath at any cost! It's fabulous!!!!!

You rotter!Leaving us dangling like that! Hope it's something really exciting, and remember, no pain, no gain - you can't make an omelette without breaking eggs - in other words, there will be stress and mess, but worth it in the end!

It's always hard when home gets turned inside out!!! Just remember the big picture!!! The end result!!! Something to look forward to - your old home just with a new jacket!!! That's always good!!!!

I love you blog Lucy and all the lovely colours. I wish I had grown up in such an atmosphere and so become the kind of person that felt comfortable surrounded by all the softness And colour. I go more for symmetrical and sparse. Renovations are scary and a pain to live through but the end result will be worth the upheaval I would imagine. Love your photos, make me homesick. I looked at the mountain and the lake with the little sailboat and thought of Skiddaw but I don't think there is a lake at the bottom of it.i am making your ruffled pillow right now and it is looking very nice. Thank you for sharing so generously with us all.

I look forward to seeing your renovated home !

Hello Lucy, your home is cozy just to look at. you seem to love to fill it with color. i need to thank you for teaching me the african hexagon flowers. ever since i had seen a crocheted scarf in the Garnet Hill catalog (it was too pricey to buy) i had dreamed of making it myself. and then i found your site. it took me no time with your detailed photos and instructions to learn them. the project turned out lovely, beyond my expectations. wish i could show it to you. margi

I love your blog. All the beautiful pictures warms my heart. I also get excited when there's talk of a little home redo. I think during this season of mylife it would scare me with the boys being young. Good luck on the upcoming messes ;)


I think you are taking spring cleaning to a whole new level with spring remodeling and setting upping :-) As always, thank you for your inspiration :-)

I just have to tell you that I am totally in love with your flower wreath! Colorful, beautiful, and happy! Thanks for sharing!


I wouldn't change a thing. i love your home. So cheery and bright and full of color. How could it be improved?


Your photo mosaic is so colourful, considering what a grey and cold month it was. A month i was glad to see the back of, to be honest.

Good luck with the renovations. I love doing stuff to the house (but not the dust. No, I hate the dust!). I like the way renovating gives me a chance to look at my home with fresh eyes. :-)

Love the last photo of your living room, it's beautiful. Also the picture of the buttery toast and oranage wool, yum. Your studio story is inspirational. I think now is a time of very positive energy for you. Long may it continue!


The lovely thing is, no matter how grey it is outside, it's always bright and cheerful in the Attic! Love it.
