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

I know what you mean about collections of wool making your heart skip, mine does too, and piles of fabric too!

Have a wonderful time in Dorset, s you always do, lots of piccies please! We are off to Wales in our own little Connie-VAn on Monday .....can't wait! Lx


You are a fantastic story-teller. Keep telling, and I'll keep reading. Have a glorious holiday. I can't wait to read about Dorset on your return. Cheers.

Hi Lucy,Well it sounds like this is just the kind of slow down you're suppose to have and it's come at just the right time too!!!So slow down and enjoy your little break with family and friends!!!Like food for the soul-it is to be "home"!!!!


I have just come across your fantastic blog while doing some research on how to crochet! I live in Australia, and I can say that I am truly amazed by your skill! I will continue to read and hopefully pick up some hints as I am just starting out.



Bardzo mi się podoba Twój Kolorowy Świat - ten wyszydełkowany i ten widziany przez obiektyw aparatu fotograficznego. Serdecznie pozdrawiam z Polski. Ala


Dorset!!!!!!!!!!! My most favourite place


Your so lucky to have a husband with a great a family that Loves u , your parents r still alive I lost my Dad 11yrs ago my hub got laid off twice and had to do a 180 go to school for something else and then he got sick had to go to the hospital, we hope he can go back in a week or two,even if we lived in England,we would be able to live where u do it looks so nice there like a fantasy:-) I luv ur blog its always a good read with eyecandy pics:-)


What a lovely pan. Some people think that a white feather on the ground is to show you that your guardian angel is watching over you - even if it's not true it's a nice thought. I hope you have a lovely holiday with your family, take some nice photos for us.

Happy holidays!


Hi Lucy, the feather is a sign of a wish being granted, I hope it is a special one.
Enjoy the time with your family and take a breath, we all need to slow down at times.

Hello, Just to say....I am one of your regular readers from Sheffield....and I am from Yugoslavia (well former Yugoslavia)....and your milk pan reminded me of home and long forgotten years....Thank you Lucy....


The yarn bombing pieces look great! I can't wait to see pics of them from Yarndale.
Have a lovely holiday xo


Slowing down is a Good Thing. Trying to make myself do that a bit-failing! Have a fabulous time in and around Bridders- off there myself in ten days or so, can't wait!


Have a great Holiday ... looking forward to all your stories when you return.


Hope you all have a wonderful time Lucy. Your break is well deserved I think. I am going to pinch your feather jug idea if I may - my littlest boy is always giving me feathers and I never know what to do with them. But yours look lovely like that.

I love the pan, lucky you! Have a great holiday :)


Have a splendid time!!!!!


I hope you will have such wonderful hollidays as we had in England with fine weather an lovely people to meet!


Fabulous yarn bombing prep. Can't wait to see the results. x

Dorothy Griffiths

Lucy you have a wonderful holiday and a well earned rest, you have certainly had a full year. Will look forward to hearing all your lovely tales of your holiday adventures.
Lots of love

Have a wonderful holiday! I too am off now for 10 whole days and will be taking the kids on day trips here and there. The feather has come at an appropriate time, and you need to now relax and take stock of all the achievement you have made so far this year. Have a relaxing time xx


The yarn bombing prep looks great. I love Stylecraft Special (thanks to your recommendation) so good to work with and lovely colours.
Your pan is so "you", what a find and brilliant price.
Have a lovely holiday.

Yes slooooow down, relax, have a great time with your family. Enjoy those precious days together. You know that on your return things will be very busy, back to school routines, Yarndale!!!
What is it about balls of yarn that make your heart go Skippity Skip?!
Have a great holiday Lucy! :) x


Hope you have a fabulous holiday, can't wait to hear about it when you get back.

Jo Roberts

You sound super organised. Have a lovely time, can't wait to see you pics. My daughter loves feathers and we have used some on the fascinators I made this week take a peek here
