About Me

  • Hello! 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

Great photos, Lucy. It's so much fun to look back on the past year and reminisce about all the special moments we've had. And, now it's time for us to start making the memories we'll be looking back on next year. I hope it's wonderful for your and your family. xoxo

Lucy, I have so enjoyed your sharing some of your day-to-day with us over these several years. You are human and not everything is hunky-dory all the time but you let us know when you need to bow out for awhile and you also celebrate the positives in your life. I've been inspired to make several of your patterns and my house glows with these touches of your inspiration. So, I'm starting this New Year with a big THANK YOU for letting us into your world.


Heart-warming visual representation of your year!
I picked out especially: Enamel mug, stripey dress, your ring!


chere Lucy, très bonne année à toi et à ta famille


I have to say thank you for your blog, it´s inspiring to me and I really enjoyed every post.
This past year was very hard for me and my family and I always find in your blog a happy place.
Hugs from Buenos Aires :D

Thanks for another wonderful and colorful year! I have enjoyed all of your posts and look forward to 2015.


Hi Lucy, its so lovely to see all the colours in your year end review. I've just enjoyed writing my own review and found it quite cleansing of my post holiday blues. Hope your 2015 is everything you wish for.x

Here's to another color filled happy year! x My first thought of that first photo was Hama beads.lol Thanks so very much Lucy for all you have shared and inspired this year. (I'm a "home body" as well, there's NO place like home!) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Having done cross stitch for many years, and also having had Hama beads around the house for many years whilst the children were small, it never occurred to me to put the two together.... That, my dear, is why you are a Creative Genius, and I? Am not!

Pam Roach

Oh thank you!!! Beautiful and fun pics! I am sitting in Michigan USA in 6" of snow. My absolute perfect day to crochet!

Jessica Felton

Lovely images - just what I need to get a crafty January kick start :-)

Mini Hama beads sound both wonderful and infuriating... would be very interested to see what you get up to with yours!


Very nice, lots of lovely colours!


Home sweet home indeed! Lovely, lovely, lovely. Keep sharing 😄 Xx lots of love Joy Xx

I always very much enjoy your visuals! :) Here's to a new year filled with love and colour - yay!

Your photos give me such a warm feeling. They also bring back so many memories of the time when my children were growing up and the house was full of their chatter and activities. Home and family mean so much. Thank you for your inspiring blog and photos.

Just lovely. Although we have seen most of the photo's before, its nice to see them all together, representing your year. Nice for you to remind yourself of little home events. Precious times.


It was interesting to me to look at the 2009 review since I only got into blogging a couple of years ago, and never knew you when your little boy was a lovely round bump... and I assume the mummy with stripey socks and smaller pink feet belong to your little lady... haven't they grown so fast! When you get to my age, you tend to forget how quickly they do grow. Thank you Lucy, for all the inspiration you have given me over the years, the colourful pleasure your posts have given me, and for allowing us all a peep into your everyday life and home.

Hi Lucy first this is my first comment on your site . Ifell into crochet as part of my way out of a spell of depression. What can I say I found a new skill a renewed love of colour and a wonderful group of friends at our local wool shops knit club. Then one of these lovely lady's said have you looked at Attic24 so now I have discovered you and all your lovely followers. Hope 2015 brings you and your family health and happiness. Okesarah xx
