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 can see it is the Sweet Flower Blanket (right-hand bar) on the lounger but no detailed tutorial. Maybe I'll be inspired to work it out

Love your blog, your views and outlook. I have a feeling your just as tired of Covid as we are but its back to the mask here in the USA too. I'm looking forward to your Christmas project! We really need something to look forward to, so thank you for that!My garden is just as small, love seeing what you've done in that space. Praying you and your family are well. Take care

I just now got around to reading this post. I have to say your space is small. BUT!! You have created a lovely cozy spot to sit and enjoy. You are so lucky to have so many public lands that are near you to enjoy. I have traveled with you many times down your river walk. Thanks for sharing.

oh i do love your cozy spot! It's amazing to me what one person can do! you have transformed that space into something really lovely. It does a heart good to look out of your window and see those colors, it's heart warming. I have been inspired to put pots on my wall now too! great idea. Enjoy your summer oh and love the lounger..


Lucy, could you tell me which blanket is on your lounger, please? I've looked at all the blankets on the sidebar but can't see it. I've tried to make a blanket with large and small squares but can't quite work it out!

The back yard is lovely Lucy! I've spent lots of time in my garden this year, to where I haven't crochet anything yet this summer, I know, it's shocking to me as well. I hope you have lots of hot sunny days ahead!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Charlotte Pountney

Hope you are OK Lucy, and enjoying your lovely courtyard. It's a bit hot for coffee and crochet...unless you have your coffee iced!


You've got a beautiful space there! Enjoy x


Lovely garden. Just wondered- if you want more privacy what about a trellis. Either with fake greenery or with an evergreen climber ( star jasmine comes to mind)?

Really enjoy your blog. Thank you.


Hi Lucy. Your garden is indeed petite, but it's so lovely with the flowers all around and a lounger to enjoy the morning sun on. I especially like the sweet peas, with the buds almost ready to pop with their blooms.


that was perfect


Loved reading this post Lucy. Your Yarden is lovely, and with the park close by for wide open grassland I think it's just perfect. Pots of bulbs, planted in the autumn, would look fab on your wall next spring :0)

Love your colorful outside corner!


Hi Lucy, You have made such a colourful place in your garden/yard, I'm quite envious - we have a very green garden - not so many pretties.
Lucy I have been looking for a poncho pattern to make for my two nieces (adults), and found yours - do you have a pattern for it, at least how to start it would be good - one of your commenters said the same thing. Did you start with approximately 100 chains stitches?
Your poncho is the best I have found!. :-)

It looks lovely, Lucy - and I love how you have used terracotta pots to make your wall a bit taller. Ingenious!

Crafty Cath

It looks great!

Tracey Ogden

Love it. I think there is something special about courtyard gardens

Esther López

Dear Lucy, simply wonderful!!, a hug from the south of Spain.


It was exciting


Love it! I've just read Arthur Parkinson's new book and I think you'd love it. He gardens in a very small concrete front garden so his is all in pots, there are some great ideas in it.

If you have space on the other side of your wall for pots you could put some rambling roses out there to sprawl up your wall.

After years of living away from the UK I'm not sure I could go back to having neighbours so close - cute space but no privacy .


Love your garden, Lucy! You have worked wonders. Don't forget security... Write your house number and postcode somewhere out of sight on your new items with a uv pen.


What a creative design of your space! And, dear Lucy, you ABSOLUTELY deserve your lounge chair :) and I agree that the storage box is a perfect dual purpose piece. Wishing you many happy and peaceful hours in the sunshine.

What a little oasis you have created. Make sure you are deadheading your petunias properly, so many people don't. My Mom had grown petunias that have tumbled down 5 feet and have a 3 foot circumference with proper deadheading and regular fertilizing.
