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 have only just found your website – courtesy of my niece – and I am really enjoying experimenting with bright colours and ‘letting my hair down a bit’. Thank you for the inspiration. I really love the trim that you have got over the window in the picture of your studio. Is there a pattern for that? It would look great in my kitchen window! Sarah.


I wanted to wave hello to you the other Saturday when you were walking along the canal with your little one but I thought you might think I was nuts as I only know you through the blog world. You gave me a look like you knew me from somewhere...I was wearing a crocheted scarf in dark blues and green and a blue plaid coat and I was with my 16 year old son.

Last night I dreamt that my husband vacuumed the house because I had procrastinated so much due to my knitting everything under the sun. And now, I'm procrastinating yet again by reading your blog! I just love your studio. So neat and organized and bright and colorful. I have a craft/yarn room and it is just a disaster. But you have given me some inspiration/motivation to organize.


Hihi, I dreamt about crochet the other week too. I was rather disappointed the blanket I dreamed about doing wasn't finished when I woke up...

Looking forward to see your wreath and yarn bombs! The new studio is very pretty :-)

Take care

Awesome space and such wonderful light! I love your color wheels using clothes pegs -- and so now I have to locate US stockists for Stylecraft yarns as they look so luscious. Missed you in the last issue of Simply Crochet -- :-( Greetings from Connecticut where it's still cold with more snow on the way!


Lucy, I work on my own and spend the whole time talking OUT LOUD to myself!! Far worse than just thinking.


Wow Lucy is there no end to your talent ? I have been a follower of your blog for a couple of years now and I had no idea about your fantastic textile art (something I have been planning and playing around with lately) Your pictures are lovely . Thank you for all your fantastic blog posts, I love all of the colour and the warm homely feel that your blog has . you inspire me - so much that this week I have started my own little blog . so thank you .

Your anemones are beautiful, such delicious colours. If your strange then so am I. I chatter to myself in my head, only way to get a decent conversation sometimes :) Your stitched pictures are amazing. I had no idea this is what you used to do before you became a mum.

I didn't know you did the pictures before, love them!!!!!!!!!


Your new studio is so cute and cozy. I saw this today and thought you'd enjoy seeing it too:


Hugs, Kimmy


When my conversations with myself accidentally make themselves audible, I use the excuse that I'm talking to my three dogs! I have always had a constant stream of chit chat in my head. As a child I can remember making up stories with myself as the main character as I went about my day. 😊 It is the normal working of a creative mind. Your studio looks beautiful and restful. Pleased you are enjoying your days there.

Oh those anemones. So utterly cheering. They're such a favourite of mine -like oversized immensely beautiful blowsy buttercups. Lovely to see images of your studio Luce x


Hey Lucy!

I am such a huge fan of yours. I am 14 and a passionate crocheter. I love you blog, it has helped make half of the things in my house! Keep up the good work!

Debbie, Essex

Oh, Lucy, it's so reassuring to know I'm not alone! I'm constantly having conversations with myself (it gives me such a headache though!) And it makes me so happy to know that I have something in common with you, because I think you are an amazing, beautiful lady!

(we saw yarn-bombing in a little Italian village last year on holiday! Even my hubby and 24year old son were intrigued!!!Must fish out the photos!)

Love your studio! (I always have Radio 4 on whenever I 'try' to create)


Such a great space! I always love flowers too - they really brighten up a room :)


Lucy you are a natural born artist - I love what you are doing and the way you bring colour to your world and to our world as well - thank you for sharing your positive attitude and your talent with us - I enjoy it immensely
Your world is so rich and sometimes I wish I could walk with you down the canal and have chat about the colors of the season.

Oh Lucy it's nice to know I am not alone I talk to myself a lot and go over conversations I have had with friends and very often think I could have said that better. Your studio is perfect I wish I could say the same about my craft room I think it's time for some reorganizing. Love the anemones so bright and cheerful.

Have a good week.

Any help you need in making that sheep dream come true my lovely, you can count on the #BTHQ girls to help you out. This needs to happen!


You will be pleased to know that you are not the only person that carries on Monologues and dialogues in your head.
I am never lonely, no matter how long I spend alone, there is always chatter going on.
It gets a bit worrying, for other people mind, when the words in my head escape to my mouth ;0)

Johanna Rackham

Your studio looks LOVELY! It must be inspiring just to be in that space. I talk inside my head as well and umm...I sometimes change languages for my inner monologues, just to keep the languages flowing. We can be weird together, there seems to be others joining our good company of "head talkers"!


Looks lovely and homey. And I love the sneak peeks, too! Thanks for sharing :) xx


awww I just love your posts and yes like lots of craftys I also talk to myself in my head all the time even get up in the night if I cant sleep and do colour experiments and because we are so busy crafting thinking about craft and looking at craft theres no time to feel alone he he

Laura from beautiful West Michigan

Are you an only child? I am and I talk to myself a lot! And I too appreciate my alone time. So are introverts born or raised?? That is the question!
