About Me

  • Hello! 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

Sorry you didn't get to the seaside in May Lucy, hopefully you'll persuade them on the next break. We always grow our sweet peas on a wigwam, but the trellis idea would work beautifully, it's how we plant our runner beans on the allotment. Can't wait to see your completed banner.

Hi Lucy, will you be doing a Cal in Jan 2019? When will wool packs
be availible and do you deliver to South Africa?
Love, love, love your blog!! Madelein xx


I absolutely love the first photo of your garden with all the pretty pots lined up along the ledge. It's so cozy and inviting... I'd spend hours out there!

Joanne Roberts

Your banner is going to be superb. Stick with that blanket stitch! Jo x


I've been poping into the Attic for a few years now and love your site, the crochet, the rambles in the outdooors, the colours and everything....love it all. Thanks for sharing.


I am crocheting different fruits and vegetables at the moment for th slimming world consultant, as she gives me so much support. Even when I am flagging.

We too are in the throws of GCSE exams (only 1 more week to go now thank goodness) but our half term was definitely not restful due to multiple golf competitions and a trip to A&E while we were away in Dorset (at one of the comps).
Sadly our weather has also been more autumnal than spring-like (if you've seen any of Springwatch you'll know what our weather has been as we're only about 45 minutes away from Sherborne). So I've been loving seeing a much more beautiful Spring through your eyes - thank you for everything you share with us on your lovely blog!
I hope that June is a similarly special month for you, although if you are anything like me you're wondering what on earth you are going to do when you've got a teen home all day, every day! :-)


I don't know where this year is going Lucy it really is kicking up a pace and yarndale will soon be here. A busy time in your household for your teen but will all soon be over and they will move onto the next chapter in their lives. It is a shock to the system when suddenly all the things you did with them as children that bought such joy to all becomes only a joy to you but then you will something to fill this void I'm sure.



Hi Lucy, like you May is my favourite month. I just love the fresh greenery and everything coming to life. We live in a seaside town in East Devon, and while I wouldn’t want to be far away from the sea I much prefer the countryside - I think you get more of a sense of seasons. As for school holidays, between my eldest starting school and my youngest leaving, my life was dominated by school routine for 22 years! Now I look after my Grandson occasionally through the holidays - there’s no getting away from it.


Like you I love sitting outside and I have a bird table where I can watch the babies being fed by parents!! The poor parents never stop and the babies seem to be bigger than them.

Your banner is stunning and I am sorry I will not be at Yarndale to see it.

I also feel that desperate need to be by the sea, it's so strange. I'm going through chemotherapy at the moment so I'm pretty much landlocked to the sanctuary of my lovely little garden but your posts help to bring the beauty of our countryside and the therapeutic benefits of crocheting to me and help cheer me up. Thank you x

Margaret Simpson

Glad your favourite month lived up to your expectations. Your banner is stunning, and I am sure there will be lots of requests for the patterns. Enjoy June Lucy, may it bring you many happy sunshine memories. 😊🦋🇦🇺


Amazing banner! It will bring many people to your booth at the Yarndale – Festival. (Not sure if it is called "booth" but that is what the dictionary suggests)June started cold here but we hope for warmth (and rain) again. Summer passes by so quickly in my part of the world so every minute of sun and warmth is so appreciated.
Take care

Thank you for the uplifting post on your blog. I always look forward to reading them.
You always manage to be so busy even when you are relaxing! 😊
May has been an incredible month and it reminds us all what a beautiful part of the world we live on.
You have reminded me that we need to visit the park, the wood and the farm shop very soon!
Our little dog George loves tearing after the swallows on the park at this time of year. ( just so that you know if you see two adults tearing after a gorgeous cavalier cross be t to e you are walking through the park! Lol!
You havereminded me I need to get back to the crocheting! Thanks for your lovely posts. Xx

Helen Lightly

It’s such a joy to read your posts, I’ve started saving them for times I need something to brighten my day 😊 I’m sorry you missed out on your trip to the beach, at least you still had the buttercups in the meadow 🌼☀️ I look forward to seeing your banner completed, the snippets you have shown so far are wonderful 😊 xx


Lucy sorry to hear you didn’t get a few days away, but glad to see you have had a good week. My experience with two now grown up sons was the same re going away for a few years, however I’m pleased to say the family holidays have now come back, it must just have just have been a phase.😀

The banner looks fab! I really want to have a go at the solid granny squares for my next project as I have some yarn leftover from the granny stripe blanket (Stylecraft yearn is such good value). Good luck with your allotment. Home grown produce is always the best :) Maybe it will inspire your next blanket project!!


Gorgeous pots in your back garden, you have reminded me I want to get a couple of pelargoniums, they're just beautiful. Sorry no-one wanted to go to the seaside, I'd be disappointed too. But home is a lovely place to be and it's always satisfying to get to grips with the allotment. You'll reap the rewards in a few weeks no doubt. CJ xx


Oops my spelling went bit wobbly sorry love Jenny ps I think you can get the gist !


Thank you Lucy for a lovely post always enjoy my visit ! So n 've I found your site a few years ago. I have become hooked on blankets ! My 18 year old granddaughter told me when she has a friend over to watch a movie she gathers them up and makes a nest and they sit draped in crochet love ! The. Cupcake one she admits to wrapping it round her like a cocoon it's a double bed size cos I counted the foundation chain wrongly ! I now have a two month old granddaughter I made some little blankets and 5 metre string of granny square triangles in seaside colours for the nursery and now working a square version of the cupcake blanket for when she is older and a rainbow blanket similar yo Patchwork Heart design !Never a dull moment thank you again Lucy love Jenny from Cornwall !!

YEs indeed, here's hoping June is just as lovely! So many flowers blooming, makes me a happier person. Good luck with the sweet peas. Bamboo staking is on my to do list for today, but for veggies not flowers. May both our gardens be lush this year! Can't wait to see the finished banner, have a fab day! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


I'm so curious, the small parts of the banner seen on the pics looks lovely. Time is coming dear, you've to go there yourself. I know when I asked my then teenagers sons and they wanted computer time. So I stepped in my car and went there myself. The first time felt strange but I got used to it. So will you. x

Catriona Mason

What an uplifting post, Lucy. The mud term break sounded perfect. June has been scorching so far in middle Scotland but my daughter is in Murcia with her students and there have bee four monsoon days out of eight so far. Your banner is “ truly scrumptious” and showcases your tslents beautifully.
