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

Hi Lucy, your blog is so inspiringly delightful with all that colour and craft, made my day to discover you!


That poached egg looks delicious - it's one of my ultimate comfort foods, and I expect it's even more tasty on your home-made bread. Definitely still winter, as you say, but hopefully spring won't be too far away!

The winter here in New York seems endless at this point - snow and COLD all the time! Looking forward to spring -- your pretty,colorful pictures are always a breath of fresh air to see. Can't wait to see the new bag!


You inspired me with the bread and I am hooked on making it too now. I share it with everyone I can. Please tell me, what is the seedy flour you use?


Your daily thoughts are so inspirational!
I've crocheted all January, then did some quilting and today off to a rug hooking class. My friend spent last year in Newfoundland and learned the art there!
Now I'm making a small rug!
Hope your weather improves very soon.
We are up to our knees in SNOW!

You can't beat a feather duster. They're just the thing for encouraging small people to do some dusting for you as well - although don't let them loose with polish and a feather duster as the result isn't good! xx


We have Spring beginning, in between the 80mph winds and horizontal rain flowers are appearing,very slowly...it will be with you in a couple of weeks time, it travels at under 30mpday,two weeks and the first signs should there.


Also here in Buenos Aires February appeared unusually rainy, even in the midst of an unbearable heat wave. My house was wet and sticky for days! Believe me I understand, I have also fallen in extreme cleanliness as the clouds are gone! Good luck with your new project. If you join several strands of thick yarn, you could knit a basket. Probably gonna do something super-Lucy! Oh, and the poached egg looks DELICIOUS! VERA


That little bunny is adorable! Is that your pattern?
Gorgeous post, as always. Love your blog.


Lucy please send Annie Epps an email back if you can. Send her hugs and colour, anything to let her know her message has brought tears to my eyes. There are so many people plodding on selflessly like her. I don't think we realise how lucky we are. X


Can't wait to see your new bag take shape while we wait for Spring over here buried under snow!

Still winter here too, only we have lots of snow on the ground and more falling today. All I want to do is crochet, but I have to work. Sigh. At least your daffs are cheerful. I have some wishing-for-spring tulips in the dining room, which make things a little brighter here.


Gosh, snow! It has been nothing but rain, rain, rain here. Rain and wind, and more rain and a bit more wind. We have leaks springing up all over the house resulting in ugly damp patches. I don't know if there's been a change in the direction of the weather or just more of it than before but this bout of weather does not seem to be doing The House of Jones much good at all.

My Lucy wreath inspired project is coming along a treat though. I'm trying my hardest to finish it so that I can share it with you. I'm terribly excited about it! Looking forward to seeing what you're making too. Getting creative feels good sometimes, doesn't it :)

I`m glad i`m not the only one with a painful arm and hand through too much hooky. Its so frustrating. I`ve had to give up for a while to rest the offending limbs grrrrrrrr! Love your blog as always penny from soggy swanage


I have never crocheted with a "chunky" yarn, but I have only ever crocheted with worsted weight yarn on an I or a J hook until seeing your blog and just now ordering some Stylecraft Special Dk. I love it and really enjoyed using the smaller G hook. It looks like your next design might have me trying a much larger hook and some chunky yarn. Lucy, you are a great inspiration to all of us to try new crochet experiences.


Lovely interesting post Lucy, await the new bag.....incidentally, shouldn't you invest in some waterproof, breathable clothes? Yes, they can be expensive but so good when out in the driving rain and last for years and years....I even have waterproof overtrousers which are super...not a drop of rain gets through them. To have had to do the school run so many times in all that awful weather must have been horrendous indeeed.


My insides are feeling squiggly at the thought of a new design too, especially a bag ! I love your designs and the colours you use and I love reading your blog. Thank you for sharing :-)


Hi Lucy, I just love your blog and read you every day - yep, I'm a lurker who doesn't comment much, please forgive me :-) I have just started blogging myself and now realise how nice it is to leave a comment! In fact today, I have linked to your blog, to your flat circle pattern, as I have been whipping up some place mats. Please pop over and take a look if you have a moment. Thank you for all your fabulous inspiration and hooky goodness x


Oooh interesting, I wait all excited for your latest design.

Paula hutchins

I just love that cute little bunny xxx


Ooo, a bag, how exciting! I know what you mean about HAVING to create something, even with bad quality yarn when there's nothing else available. Can't wait to see the finished product, but loving the colours already! xxx


The little rabbit is adorable! I have bunnies on the brain, since our new one is arriving today. His name is Benjamin - of course I had to offer him a home!

Jess Bryan

I now have a massive craving for poached eggs! :)
Big Congrats on the likes!
Thought id also just say, ive finally bought the 'Attic24 Colour Pack'!! I needed more yarn so thought why not! They are very pretty colours :)

What a great descriptive post about the joys of being inside during the winter and watching the weather. Simple things but delightful!
