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

You clever thing! It looks gorgeous and I love your pins.

Who doesn't love buttons?! You can never have too many! ; ) I love how you've chose to add them to both ends, must do that on the next one I make. I too will use that method sometimes for the "button holes." It's looks right at home and cosy in your chair (s). I'm currently seaming rows together on my heart blanket, then onto the edge.


Fabulous! Thank you for taking so much time to take such great photos and going through the stages in such detail. It must take you ages - really does give so much pleasure and inspiration! x


Oooh, this is wonderful! I've got all those brilliant Stylecraft colours and am all set to follow your lovely tutorial. This post was the most marvellous colour-fest, thank you, thank you, thank you, Lucy. xxxxx


I love your stuff, and you are very talented. Its always a treat to pop over. I was so hoping this pillow would be something other than the usual, standard rainbow/Skittles colors you always use. They are wonderful to be sure, but on everything?? Do you ever dream or plan or design anything that are not rainbow colors? Not a complaint, just a curiosity. I think after a while, the busy rainbow colors everywhere in the house would make me crazy. And eventually, everything begins to look a like. Just an observation from a nobody. :)


Love those colours, the cushion looks so good on your chair. I can imagine you getting comfortable for a bit of hooking with it in your studio. Hx


Seeing your beautiful cushion finished has cheered me no end as I sit on the sofa after root canal work at the dentist today! I love your colour combinations ; they work so well together and look so jolly! Thank you for all the work you must put into your tutorials that you share so generously. Can't wait to make one of these beauties!
Best wishes from Dorset.

Love this pillow it is soooo Lucy :-)
Thank you for sharing your lovely work !


Your blog makes me smile. Thank you for the colours. :)


Well done! Love your cozy corner. The colour palette is wonderful in your pillow cover and in the blanket behind it :)

Magnificent tute, Lucy; you're the best. The cushion cover rocks like no other I have seen on the Interwebs. Thanks for sharing your pattern and process.

Hi Lucy how is it that Sue pinners is exactly like yours ! Thank you for the marvellous tutorials they are so welcome.x


It really makes me happy, the colors of that pillow! I`ve printed the tutorial for taking with me on vacation with the caravan. I`ve finished the cosy stripe blanket and started the granny stripe blanket for my husband, (you know, cold evenings but not willing to go inside the caravan yet). So as you can think, you are with me on vacation this year;-)........in Holland
greetings Miek

You're so clever Lucy, great tutorial as always, I'm going to have a go with my leftovers and I've already got a small feather cushion that I use for yoga that desperately needs a new cover. Your colour combos are so cool too!


Gorgeous! I really like a rectangular cushion.


It's brilliant Lucy, I love how you made it all from little odds and ends of leftover wool, and the buttonholes are genius. Sewing things together scares me, but you've done it so beautifully (and invisibly), you've inspired me. How welcoming it looks in your favourite chair. CJ xx

Hi Lucy. I always look forward to seeing your new creations ... this is lovely and cheerful! I have a question (if you have time) ... I'd like to start selling my crochet designs and i have a blog. I notice you sometimes show what you're doing before you post the pattern. Do you ever find people copy what you've done? Would you advise I don't post pics of my work until I've got the pattern finished? Many thanks! Hook on!


Very clever and just as sweet as can be! I'm making the afghan now and I'm so pleased with it.


Very clever, very vibrant, very you!

And love the way you forward plan details - like the rainbow effect one side, the random patchwork the other side.


I collect all the previous opinions and compliments in a huge bunch and I put a beautiful ribbon on it and I give to you for all your fantastics works because I don't find any better to say.
Well, in fact yes... THANK YOU!!!


Well Lucy all I can say is you never disappoint. I just love it and yes I will be making one.
Blessings Gail


This must be one of your best! The buttons are the perfect finish and the 'buttonholes' simply genius! ♥


I've started and have made 5x squares!! I'm enjoying this little project. :-) Thank you Lucy!

Teresa Kasner

Bravo! Another wonderful project that I love and would like to make someday. You sure know how to knock it out of the park, Ms. Lucy! The buttons make it so cute! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
