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

Dear Lucy you are truly inspirational even to an old "hooker" hahahaha .love your work, can stay on your blog for ages. I live in Cape Town South Africa and am constantly inspired by the way your surroundings influence your work. I should be doing the same xxxxx thanks so much


The northern hemisphere wakes to spring days, the southern hemisphere wakes to autumn days. The nights are becoming dark earlier and the leaves are starting to change colour. Although the days are warm the mornings still have a chill in the air.

Lucy you are wonderful, gifted, and an inspiration to many women around the world.

Can't wait until you share the Yarndale Projects ... :)

In the meantime I happen to notice some other yarny inspiration at other blogs - I can't help it.

If you like have a look here:

It's a report of a german Blogger-Creative-Contest-Finale - and the great yarny Pictures at the upper third part made me almost cheer with delight: a yarny Tipi, and a ceiling decoration with socks. Even the huge cactus looked soo lovely.



Wonderful pictures! You are so lucky to have flowers popping around! We still have so much snow here (Québec) and it was -28°C this morning!!

Your blog has been such an inspiration to me, Lucy. I just love it all and now that I hold crochet classes so many of my newly learning friends are doing Granny Stripes, ripples, hearts, flowers and edgings from your archives. It's where we go when we need a crochet boost! Bless you and keep up the brilliant work.
Love Jenny x

Love your photos and especially the flowers. Even though today was the first day of spring we managed to get a half inch of snow :(


Very busy week!
Beautiful pictures.

Your photos are as good as your crochet work. What sort of camera do you use, just out of interest as a keen photographer myself. Cheers, Jackie
