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

Love your new blanket your working on Lucy. Do you have a pattern for it?

Happy Easter to you and yours!


I love your designs and blankets! I'm new to crochet but your tutorials ate easy to follow. Will you have a pattern for the one you're doing? I'm not good enough at this to figure out the rounds! :)


Loving your bright colors!!

Having the same sort of holiday here, love it. My blanket is finally getting underway, and it too is join as you go, at least end to end, the sides will have to be sewn together. It's tapestry crochet of heart blocks(inspired by Little Woollie's latest blanket) in shades of blue and green, 16 colors in all. Nothing like snuggled up in your favorite chair listening to the family noise and crocheting. Love L. B.'s wreath and his colored bunny, I see he loves lots of colors like Mom. Enjoy your Easter Lucy!


Love the new blanket! Is there going to be a yarn pack for this one eventually? Not that I need any more projects as I'm trying to finish off a ripple blanket and one from Wink's blog before the Lily Pond Cal starts and also start a Sophie! Do you get tempted by any other designers' CALs/designs? I also did the Simply Crochet poncho but I wondered particularly about blankets etc.


Happy Easter, Lucy! I hope you and your family have a lovely day. I agree, staying home is best. We've done the same over the past week for our spring break too. This week I only went out twice, both for groceries and a library trip on one of those outings too; needed lots of books to go along with my hooking and sewing. :)

Love, Marisa and Lucia xx

I think Little B's Easter wreath is absolutely lovely, such pretty pastel colours and very nicely put together :)

Sara Jenkins

HAPPY EASTER! Your week sounds wonderful - and I look forward to seeing your new blanket. x


A lovely relaxing week for you all. I love little B and his comments - and I LOVE his wreath (please pass on that message to him). Four more working days for me and then I retire and will have all the time in the world to knit/crochet every minute of every day (I may go for a run sometimes though) Happy Easter to you all Xx lots of love Joy Xx

Absolutely agree with the comment above that it's not necessary to go out and about with children all the time! they learn to amuse themselves so much more if you are not constantly giving them external stimulation, and just enough time, attention (and food!) to make them feel loved and secure. This way they develop proper attention spans rather than the 'flutter-minds' many children seem to have these days. Lucy, it seems to me like you have got it just right, and that you are treading the perfect middle ground down this precarious path we call child-raising. Loving the colour, Little B's wreath and the overall feeling of contentment in this post. It's an emotion so rarely found these days and one to be made the most of. Happy Easter, every blessing to you and yours, Claire x


Love the easterwreath! My children have grown up, , and I now sit with my Grandchildren and make things, they love it as much as I do! Easter is a lovely time with the family, the little people grow up so fast, you really have to treasure the time you have with them, happy Easter , Lucy to you and your lovely family, love Tina X


Lovely blanket idea. I have just finished your coast ripple blanket for my son, now beginning a ripple blanket in bright 'girly' colours for my two year old niece. I love your blog Lucy!

Karen Tait

Happy Easter to you and yours Lucy, can't wait to see how this new project turns out. Little B's wreath is fab and he should be very proud of it.

It's great to read this, Lucy. Too many parents feel they have to drag their children out to expensive 'attractions' in the holidays to keep them happy, with lots of stress, queues, and needless travelling. I'm sure lots of children would be just as happy chilling at home spending quality time with their parents and siblings.

Anne Marie

Oh its a new design! Like it very much. I love lazy hone days too. Easter too crowded for driving anywhere.


Sounds like a lovely week Lucy. I have the same problem with endless requests for food. They don't get snacks all day when they're at school! I hope you have a wonderful Easter, and another good week off. CJ xx

Ann Hughes

Love your blog Lucy,always a pleasure to read. Well done Little B. Happy Easter to you all. XXX


Lovely reef little man.
