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

I love love love your website and your studio, and all that you do! I am an avid knitter, but learnt crochet only last August. Since then, have made so many wonderful items (a few by borrowing [thank you!] patterns from your site) and feel so fulfilled and happy to sit down with my stash of yarn and crochet away the hours.

I just ordered one yarn pack is that enough for afghan and border. I am in USA?


Have been fired up with inspiration since discovering your blog. So many lovely hooky things here...LOVING the lampshade.

Hi,I love the candleabra on your mantle,could you tell me where it's from?Am very envious of your open fire,I can almost smell that gorgeous Hyacynth!


Reading Country Living during a quiet period is one of my favourite ways to relax (and get inspired - all that beautiful styling and photography!)
I love the spring issues but also the autumn/winter ones too. For some reason I tend to give the summer ones a miss. I'm more of a wintry person I suppose!
Your fire looks lovely and inviting.

I was waiting for such a homely post,I do not crochet so I love reading about your daily life and your positivity in life which is an inspiration
Thanks for sharing..


Ce blog est superbe!! Tout est magnifique! J'adore cette lampe par exemple! Bravo pour toutes ces couleurs et tout ce crochet!!!


Can I ask you:

I'm getting back into hyacinths in jars of water on the mantel (now that I have a mantel of my own) & I can't for the life of me remember - now that they're going over, what do you do to make them ready for next year?

This year we discovered a shade of hyacinth that made this synaesthetic's heart sing! Delft blue - do you know it? Bet you'd like it.

What is the adorable little bell shaped crochet item in photo 5? I must make some!
Lucy, I LOVE your posts. Crochet is now in my life forever because of you! Also, it is very touching to know that colors in nature are as meaningful to others as they are to me. :)
Thanks so much -- Caitlin

The pub sounds cozy and wonderful - and why not wine at lunch on a weekday? Your fireplace looks so cozy!


I am loving the look of what is on your hook at the moment. Those granny squares look gorgeous. Hoping you will be sharing these with us shortly.


I have spied, on your floor in front of the fire, a cushion (though I can't see the size/shape) JUST like one I have in my imagination but can't find. Yours is bright pink. I love that bulky squishy piping/edging. Can you remember where you got it from? Could you tell me?


The little cinema reminds me of the one I used to go with my parents as a kid. Good times! Oh, the smell of popcorn and the excitment beforehand! Unfortunatly very few small cinemas survived here in Germany :(

Looking forward to see you colourful something tomorrow!

Take care

Hi Lucy, When I commented on your post about the trip to the Yorkshire Coast the other day, I was sooooo carried away with the fact that I felt your narrative had lifted me into the pictures to be there with you, I forgot to say I was SOOOO glad to see you and yours were having some lovely quality time togeter, and I know that you REALLY were in need of that. Reading your post today you can tell how much this time has lifted your spirits and I really am happy about that as this time of the year is difficult. Can't wait for your colourful surprise. xxxx

Robin Summers

Sounds like you had a quiet and blissful weekend. Mind was laid back and wonderful as well. Last night during one of my surf adventures on the web I came across the most wonderful site that had fabric that I KNOW you would flip for. Here are a couple of the links. I hope you take a moment to take a look at them. I don't know if you have heard of Micheal Miller and Fabric.com but tat is where they are. They are just fab and right up your alley. :)




Take care sweet Lucy. I can not wait until tomorrow. I love surprises.


Looks like you've been having a fabulous time. I must say now my kids are all grown up I miss the times we spent together just 'hanging out' and having fun. We all remember them fondly.

Elsie Pop

Just looking at these pictures is helping me relax on my lunch break at work! Looking forward to the colourful reveal! xx

Cherie Chudyk

Just love your open fire so cosy. We went to the cinema last week too Shaun the Sheep was very funny, love him and the way so much can be said without words. Thanks for sharing x

Sounds wonderful! Look forward to seeing your colorful reveil! More of the lazing about separately here this weekend, for me it was hooking up some wheels within wheels. Enjoy your blissful day at the studio!

That cinema looks so cosy and glowy - almost as if it's candlelit! We used to have the cutest little old-fashioned cinema too - a man even came on stage and introduced the film and if it was anyone's birthday in the audience he gave them the book of the film! (if there was one). The council closed it down and now we just have a horrible souless multiplex which I boycott!

Charmaine  Slater

Thank you Lucy when my life is feeling so dull your blog fills it with hope and colour xxx


What greater pleasure knitting beside the fireplace, Lucy !!!!
It makes me happy to know that you had a good weekend!
A big hug from Catalonia!
