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

Wow. You must be the most privileged person I've ever seen - who pays for this most beautiful indulgent life? I assume you have a rich husband!!

Love your use of colour, so bright and cheerful on these short mainly grey days.


What a wonderful collage of memories! Your blog is so inspiring. Happy 2014!

Hi Lucy

Just wondering whether the French Bower Bird tutorial is available? I am keen to make a wreath of some kind based on "welcome to our nest", with a mummy, daddy and baby bower bird sitting at the bottom!

Happy new year Lucy and your lovely family! I just wanted to say that my issue of Simply crochet arrived this morning and I think your first article is fab :-) I've been trying to decide on a design for my first ever crocheted blanket, and I'm now completely inspired to embark on my own blanket journey! Jo xx


Happy New Year to you and your family Lucy. I don't very often leave a comment although I am a regular reader of your blog and sometimes visit more than once a day for a wonderful colour 'fix'. Looking forward to another year of your lovely blog :) xx


These looks back at the year are always so dreamy!! Thanks so much for taking the time to assemble them and share/inspire!!


Merci Lucy pour le partage tout au Long de l'année 2013 et je vous souhaite une merveilleuse et douce Année 2014.

Hello Lucy, happy new year! I´m from Germany and my english isn´t pefect but I really love your blog! Even if I don´t understand every word. I am always happy when I see, you posted something new. When I read your words and see the pictures I am always in another world. It is full of joy and love. I love your crochet things. Even if you are so far away, it feels if I am really close.

Thank you so much for making my days a bit better!

Happy new year Lucy!
Because of you, I have finally learnt to crochet (something I'd wanted to do for years but you inspired me to ACTUALLY do it with your addictive colours!) Because of you, my new year's resolution is to enjoy and savour each moment. Because of you, I have subscribed to Simply Crochet and am looking forward to receiving it through my door each month to then sit and read with a big mug of tea. Because of you, I too am addicted to Rice products!!!!

Thank you for such a beautiful blog!


I only recently discovered your blog but I am loving your colourful aesthetic and happy outlook, and greatly looking forward to seeing more of these in 2014 :) Happy New Year, I hope it brings you lots of love and happiness and rainbows.


I'm so glad to have found your blog a few months ago. You have inspired me to crochet and take a little break from stitching samplers every now and then...since stitching is my first love. Your photos of the past year are chock full of love, colour, happiness and joy. It's a great way to look back and see 2013 chronicled. Take care and I'll be coming back for more this year!!

Hey Lucy.
I want to crochet the cute little deer from simply crochet issue 6, but the back issues are sold out and there are no digital downloads available that I can find. Help!
Thank you!
Your stuff is awesome! We love your blog!


Dear Lucy,
thank you for your enthusiasm about blogging and colour, nature and life in general. I know that I don't comment regularly, but I always love reading your new blog entries and they really brighten up my day!

All the best!
Julia :)

Happy Happy New Year to you, too, Lucy~! I have loved your blog and visiting your colorful happy life. It's an inspiration and a joy and I'm truely looking forward to this next year!


Oh, Lucy! Your pictures make me so happy - the beautiful colors, the feeling of love and the joy you manage to find in your life every single day. Thank you for sharing all of this . May you and your family be blessed with a beautiful, happy, healthy New Year. xoxo


Happy, happy, happy! I discovered both your blog and crocheting about a year ago. I found that I had lost the "color" in my days and seeing your use of color and how happy it makes you has inspired me to enjoy the colors also. The best to you and yours in 2014!

Looking at your Year In Review photos, I thought how lovely it would be to have an Attic 24 calendar! Have you ever considered creating and selling one?
