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

Hi Lucy, don't know if you can help none of your photos open up on my phone

Thanks for the reminder had forgotten to look at this group of bloggers.

Hi Lucy I really must find a group oF yarny folk to crochet with...like your Friday group...that would be a hoot!
With your love of colour and talent for design, have you ever touched bases with Kaffe Fassett? I have been a follower of his for probably over 20 yrs now. Here is a link for those that might be interested.


What a fantastic event, I can well imagine how much you enjoyed it, it's yarny heaven - wool and like-minded chums, doesn't get much better. What a lovely hotel as well. Glad you had such a lovely time. CJ xx

I'm glad you had a good time - it might have been hot on the train but it looked like perfect weather for drinks on the lawn! Love your beaded flower :) xx


You were not far from this small corner if you were near Birmingham Lucy. I hope you enjoyed your visit and meeting up with friends.
The beaded flower mats are beautiful. I can visualise lots of them being joined together in a glorious riot of colour :)


Hi Lucy what a delight to discover your blog by accident this morning. Thanks for sharing the joy of your journey and meeting with special friends. I enjoyed reading it so much and feel as though I've just been on a sweet break too. <3 <3

Hi Lucy
How Id love to be a fly on the wall at this gathering of creative souls...thank you for sharing your trip away and introducing us all to more amazing talented people.
And also thanks so much for replying to my last comment re the canal boats...


What a lovely post Lucy & glad you got away for a yarny/colour full break. Look forward to see what you might get up to with new colours and those beads. The centre of a mandala, perhaps. Thanks for sharing, take care & hugs. BTW, your trains all over the place, sounds very like here.


Pretty sparklies! I can just see your Bauble Decorations and Festive Garland embellished with crocheted-in beads. Is there such a thing as too much sparkle? So many things to do, so little time .... I noticed that one of your commenters was a new follower. Isn't it nice that your work can reach across time, and anyone can hop aboard the train at any time? I am right now reading the blog of a dynamo of a woman, Teresa Kasner. She has passed on now, and had passed on before I discovered her. But her blog is still there, and through it she still speaks. I am grateful to you, and her, for so generously sharing your worlds, because my world has been enriched by your stories, and pictures, and skills, and ideas.


Beautiful as ever!
Oh my goodness I love the idea of beads ....no no no you have other stuff to sort.......but buuut!
Is so pretty and well I could do that stuff tmo ha ha


Such beautiful colorful yarns, I can see why this trip is so important. That beaded flower is beautiful and I kinda think we will be seeing a banner across your fireplace soon with beads. So glad you had such a great time.


I love the flower-filled planters in the first photo, I really think I prefer to see well planted pots to regular borders. I always enjoy fondling balls too! I like the idea of the new Colour Twist yarn, but I'd have to see a crocheted sample to know if it was for me or not. Your beaded crochet flower is lovely! I haven't tried this sort of thing yet, but I do have an idea for a Christmas-y thing that would call for it. Mmmm, maybe.
Take care!


What a fun adventure! Thanks so much for sharing, Lucy.


Hi Lucy! It’s always so lovely to hear about your different jaunts and I’m looking forward to hearing about the seaside one too! I absolutely love the beaded flower, how pretty it is! Gosh the options are endless with beads and crochet! I really enjoyed your mandala/doily pattern that used beads. It was in one of the magazines years ago. Thank you for sharing with us all xx


What fun to hear of your travels, as always. I am happy for you to have had such a lovely jaunt. It's delightful to hear from you again this week!

I am always so fascinated by your canal photos. Do you have any friends who live on the canal? I would love to hear about what it's like and see pictures! :)


Thank you, Lucy, for taking us with you on your jaunt. It is wonderful to see all these talented ladies including yourself. New yarny things are always a pleasure to see.


Lucy, your enthusiasm shines out from your posts. Such an enjoyable read - love the hotel and grounds - sounds lovely. Thank you Lucy, x


It's so lovely to share your walks and jaunts with you, Lucy - it always raises my spirits. That is a beautiful beaded flower, you clever soul, and I so looking forward to seeing the completed blanket, too xxx
