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.

There is nothing like homemade gifts from little people to bring a glow to your heart. My little people are all grown up now, but I have a box of things they made for me, and it brings back many happy memories when I browse through it. Glad you had such a lovely day. XX

A little happy place

I've just subscribed to Simply Crochet, the temptation was too great!! S xo


As always so enjoy reading your blog. Those handmade Mothers Day cards from your little ones mean so much don't they. Happy memories.


Lovely. Spring is the perfect season for you I think - all of those beautiful colours. I do love little b's wonderful drawings. Those huge happy smiles! Fantastic. CJ xx


Great idea- the glass painted picture!! I'll try that one at school! Lovely to see the joy in the simple things. Being a mummy is so special- treasure these times. Mine are 18 and 15 and it's seems 2 minutes ago that I was thinking and enjoying the same simple moments. Time flies so quickly, Karen xx

What a lucky Mummy you are. I love the painting on glass concept that Little B participated in. Obviously your children inherited your crafting talents, x

Nothing spells LOVE like a handmade card that shows who are kids truly are. The small smiling people on Little B's card made me smile too. Good to see your colorful home anytime of the year.


Super cute pics. You are very lucky. Am currently working on your original bag. Looking forward to your news and coming to your workshop in July. I'll bring my bag! It's a lovely sunny day here in London. Will pick up my reserved Simply Crochet from the newspaper seller outside Temple Tube on Thursday. I know subscribing is cheaper but it would be a shame to see all these stalls disappear.


Happy mother day Lucy, your children live in a rainbow home! We'll celebrate mother's day in the 2nd sunday of may here in Italy.

Our tulips and daffys are blooming here, lovely! Your cards from the kiddies are soooo sweet. You absolutely color their world with love. Do you know the song Sunshine Lollipops and Rainbows? Leslie Gore released it probably a few years before we were born. :)

Such precious works of art .. I have a number of masterpieces tucked away, can't bear to part with them .... and my three offspring are all in their thirties!! xPat


There is a long time I wanted to write to you to tell you how much I like your blog.
Every thing you do with your crochet is a Great idea.
You gave me the taste to have my blog too!
You are inspiring!
Have a good Day.


Lovely post, Lucy. Do enjoy your blog and only found you recently. My husband is a retired art teacher. He thinks that Little B's picture is very good and such a 'bold positive image!' I'm making your Granny stripe blanket pattern using a red / green / yellow / turquoise and pink palette. ☺️


What wonderful pictures to cherish, I was blessed with some this year from my Grandchildren. I thought I might start a scrapbook for each child and save all there art work.

Your blog and photos always make me smile and the hand-made cards are so special and precious. I have saved mine over the years and they still give me pleasure!

Such a joyful post Lucy; it's always the little things that matter and mean the most and are worthy of treasuring for ever.
Blessings to you and your family,

I love daffodils, unfortunately here in Oz I have to wait until the end of our winter before I see mine. Thanks for sharing Greedy for Colour blog always nice to find a new blog to follow.

We can't always have finished products to show. Sometimes a beautiful work in progress brings about the same excitement. I'm currently in the exact same mode (http://gocrochetcrazy.blogspot.de/2014/03/i-love-surprises.html?m=0) and very excited for the outcomes. But, in the meantime, the little joys mean a lot. The daffodils and homemade cards are all treasures. You've reminded me to treat myself to a bouquet of tulips. :) thank you for sharing the Greedy for Coloir blog with us, as well. Another feast for the senses!

Hi Lucy, isn't lovely to get our kids art ... I always loved displaying it in our house and I still do. My kids are teenagers and I still love when they make something and I love to display it and admire it every time I pass by it. I have bought one of the magazines just to see your article... Great! I loved it.
I'm currently working on a very colorful, Japanese flower blanket which I have shown parts of it on my blog. In May it will be my SIL's 50th birthday and she always wanted me to make her a blanket...e I thought this to be a good opportunity. I'm enjoying very much. If you have some time come by and check it out. I will be completely done with it in a couple of weeks. Beautiful colors on your current work!

Veggie Mummy

Hi Lucy,
Another lovely post. I particularly like the flower painting; what a brilliant idea and a real 'keeper'. I also just wanted to say a big thank you - I've just finished a stripy blanket following your pattern. I love it to bits and it's really brightening my day. x
