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

Lucy, you are not alone, have you seen Lene's blog?


You are both doing such beautiful work.

I love the leaves. I have a manzanita branch tree that I believe originally started out as a jewelry display. It's my Holiday tree now. Valentine's, St. Patrick's, Easter, & Christmas are the holidays I use it for. I like Susan's comment on making them in Autum colors. I don't have any Autum/Halloween decoration for it. I think this might do very well with a few crochet pumpkins and gourds thrown in. How cute would that be!? Lynn


delightful as always lucy x

Jenny Johnson

Oh wow I just love it. So colourful. xx


A riot of colour and exuberance! (not that I would expect anything less from you ;) )


Oh I have that little caravan and flamingo decoration! Reminds me of happy sunny days in Cornwall (Fowey/Polruan to be exact!)


Love your leaves and your mirror really helps. Frosty down south this morning but now the sun is shining. Hooray!!


After an extremely stressful day at work here in Utah, USA, your blog helps me to unwind and de-stress.. I LOVE everything you do and am a color junkie just like you.. Everything you post perks me up and brightens my day and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.. Your posts remind me of simpler days I used to have when I was first married and living in Germany at the time.. Its wonderful to see your posts and think back on those times.. Thanks for everything Lucy, especially for being YOU!

Love this idea,I'm definitely going to decorate for Easter next year

Susan Smith

They are so pretty and I could see them in lovey rusts, gold and tawny colours for autumn too. Thanks for the pattern. Take care.


so pretty for Spring!


Oh yes, spring is the best time of the year. I love the Greens and all the flowers. And your crocheted leaves are really beautiful. Greetings from Cologne, Mila

The leaves are gorgeous Lucy, I particularly like the smooth edges and the lovely little point. They're just right for this time of year and they look brilliant on your mantel twigs. CJ xx

I'm always in awe of how many different ways you find to decorate your mantel :)

I am in love with your mantel! In fact I have been for a very long time now. Thank you for sharing it with us and thank you for the pattern, will have a go later and Yippee for Spring too!!! xxx Sarah :0)


They are so bright and pretty and bring the joy of Spring indoors. My kitchen dresser could do with a makeover from the ceramic garlands that have been there all winter. I'd better get busy!


Lucy,your little leaves are so pretty and really dress up your twig tree with some color. My house does seem to look drab too after a holiday when I've taken down the decorations. I have to tell you that I ordered the yarn kit for your cozy blanket and it arrived today. I had been wondering how long it would take to ship from across the pond to Ohio in US where I live, but it took about ten days, not bad. What beautiful colors! I can see why you like Stylecraft yarn, don't know if it's available in stores here. I had picked it for the bright colors and was not disappointed. Now I have to decide if I still want to do the blanket in the cozy pattern(which is also like your new cupcake blanket pattern) or do a ripple pattern. I see the yarn count is still fifteen for both so should not make a difference. Both patterns are pretty. I just have to make sure I remember to convert the directions into US terms so I don't mess up! Thanks for designing these blankets and putting together such great colors and making the patterns available to us!


Sooo sweet 😀 Hurray for Spring and hurray for colours 😃


Your mantelpiece looks gorgeous, such a happy place to feast the eyes! Thank you for the tutorial.


simply love this idea. I am always hanging up and changing things around. I think I feel some spring bloossoms and leaves coming on...

Winwick Mum

Love those little leaves! They're such happy, cheerful colours and would be perfect for any season xx


This is really beautiful, I love to do these little decorations that bring so much brightness into a home. Happy hooking, Viola
