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

I always say if I won the lottery with serious money, my first indulgence would be the regular weekly delivery of fresh flowers. Not a formal display - I'm the plonk-into-a-jam-jar kinda girl, but armsful -f beautiful blooms arriving on my doorstep fresh every week. That wouldn't preclude me from picking up the odd bunch on impulse when out and about! I feel the same about "chrysanths" myself!


what a good idea what the stem of eucalyptus. Here grow in streets and squares, I going to appropriate some stems, looks beautiful in the vase!


Hi Lucy, those irises are looking so beautiful! My day of purchasing flowers for the table has for a long time now been Friday since I work almost all week and find I get more happiness from them in the weekend. Also congrats on the column :)


An upside to forgetfulness- excellent! Beautiful irises and I do like the addition of a bit of Australiana :)


Lucy, The flowers are lovely but not as lovely as the picture of YOU with the flowers! So special to have such a beautiful shot of you. THANK YOU XOX

Silly Little Sheep

Your home is so colourful, I love it!!


Can't remember you having Irises before Lucy!! sorry about my rant the other day about shipping abroad - I know it's not your call and I apologise - I was just so looking forward to joining in the giveaway - but it was so big it's understandable that it couldn't be shipped abroad - maybe next time just take out one item for those abroad - it's the thought that counts!!

You so remind me of the me I used to be!! thanks for that!! yeh, just thanks!!

Such joyful words, flowers and colours.

Lucy, surrounded as i am by eucalyptus and redwood trees, I could box up a bundle of each and send them off to you. Do your postal rules allow the import from California of plant cuttings? I'll see if we are allowed to send them, now that I think about it there may be some agricultural reasons why regulations prohibit such a mailing. Would you be interested if we are permitted? I use redwood sticks in my weavings all the time-they smell good too: subtle and yet distinctive.

Hi Lucy
Lovely flowers.... Purple is my absolute favorite color!!! Have a happy weekend:))
Stephanie :)))


Your jugs of flowers always look beautiful. I was so happy today to see that you had some Aussie plant among the flowers. As Rose said come to our backyards and you can pick bunches of them with leaves of various shapes and sizes and all having that wonderful eucalyptus aroma.Congrats on the new job. I am really looking forward to reading your articles as i always buy the mag.


Dear Lucy...Do you have a pattern for the scarf that you are wearing in the lovely picture of yourself holding the flowers...???? If you DO, could you please share it...??? THANK YOU SO MUCH...!!!!!

Lovely post Lucy and well done on your column which I am looking forward to reading, so well deserved. I have always loved reading your posts Lucy and I think you were one of the first blogs I ever found and have loved it ever since. Have a wonderful weekend. Big hugs

I have iris bulbs in my garden (I use the word 'garden' rather loosely) and each spring a few pop through which always makes me feel happy.x


I luv fresh cut flowers, so pretty.


Lovely colours, it is wonderful to have fresh cut flowers in the house. It is nice to have a little well deserved treat at the end of the week.x

Irises are my favourite flower. I would have them in my house always if I was allowed.

I love irises, the colours are so vibrant. I had them in my wedding bouquet. They surely can't be in season now though? All the same, they are beautiful.


I am always so envious when I see your lovely bluebells, violets, peonies and other English flowers but today the tables turned. A pound for a eucalyptus branch? Oh Lucy come to my Aussie backyard and I'll give you a ton.

ALL flowers make me happy! Your irises are so lovely, and just perfect in that jug. I see a lovely new hooky project taking shape. I've been hooking up some snowflakes to 'deck the halls' with this season. It's been a big day to stuff ourselves today here in the U.S.lol As it's Thanksgiving day. Think I'll curl up with a hooky project now that dinner is over and just be lazy the rest of the day. Happy day to you and yours.

They are so pretty, and I love that you enjoy this little ritual each week. What a nice thing to do. xx


I love iris, they are pretty much my favourite flowers. It's so nice to have the unexpected joy of suddenly remembering something lovely you've done for yourself. I hope you're always surprised by jugs of flowers!


Lovely flowers, lovely words. xx

We bought snowdrop bulbs from the flower stall when were there for Yarndale and they are starting to pop their heads through the soil!! Love your irises that you buy every Friday, but dear Lucy your head must be in the clouds with all the excitement you have had today because it is Thursday!! Congratulations on your new job ... can't wait to enjoy it each month! Lots of love and hugs Joy xx
