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

Cute, Cozy, Cozy, house. Love love love your fireplaces and especially the one in your kitchen. Wow. I've always dreamed of having an actual fireplace in my kitchen!xoxo Jen (Boise - Jen) :)


It's all looking lovely, Lucy, you must be very proud. And now you have the photos to look at when it starts to get messy again ('cos houses have a horrible habit of doing that, don't they?!) Pretty heart, I love that new Cath K red gingham fabric. It manages to be christmassy and yet not christmassy at the same time. Does that make sense?

I'm guessing that Flylady wasn't for life ... no, I fell off the wagon too, couldn't cope with that barrage of e-mails ... pity, really, for our brief honeymoon period I thought I was sailing into a future of shiny sinks!


How lovely a friend to bring presents! Your house looks wonderful, but I bet it looks nice all the time and you're just being hard on yourself.


I need a Sarah to visit me! I know what you mean though about people coming around as an incentive to tidy up the place. I am always happier when my home is tidy but it does tend to build up until I have to have a housework blitz! You have what I would call a friendly home Lucy. Cosy, warm and safe.

Haha! Around here, we call it the panic-clean.
And in your defense, it was Halloween season, cobwebs are a must.


If you ever (God forbid) decide to go minimalist, please can I have the red spotty jug? I realise you don't know me, but I'm not adverse to begging from strangers when it involves such gorgeous things.

And the Liberty buttons - couldn't you just eat them?
Found your blog through pillarboxred and Vanessa.

Hi Luce,

Seriously impressed you were visited by AMH herself! Not sure who the other lady is, Betz White? Do tell!

I am busy printing off your hexagons and crochet bag patterns...and while doing so...I peeked into your sweet little home. Lucy...you have such a special talent at making EVERYTHING look so comfy and cozy...and pretty too. You are such a sweetheart! Lucky you, lucky Sarah.


P.S. Does J. realize what a treasure he has?


your home looks very pretty and cosy, I love your little white tree on the table, and what a lovely friend to bring you a homemade heart and biscotti's ( my favourites ) yummy.

Your house look very neat and tidy but in a homely way. I don't like very prim houses. Yours looks like the perfect place to while away hours chatting, knitting and reading.

I LOVE your blog,

Ive Tagged you



What a great home: the perfect balance of creative style and warmth! I believe you would be the friend with the "most beautiful, desirable, inspirational, clean and tidy abode" that inspired me to clean.


Your house looks lovely... I think I need to have a friend around because I hate house work.... I'd much rather knit & watch a DVD then clean on my day off, glad to hear this is normal!
Looks like you had a good trip to London, loving all the fabric. Did you make the crochet dec hanging off the coffee pot??? I love it, think I may have a play around tomorrow or if you'd like to be kind you could give me a few hints!!

Thanks Attic 24, nice to now that I am not the only mum who thinks she has seen too much daytime tV and is going around the bend..... I am actually pondering over your blog as we speak and looking at a lovely photo of a choc pastry and strawberrys....



Smoldering quietly ends up doing a lot of burning to a relationship. Much, much better to have your friend over - it could even save your marriage! ;-) Cherrie
Ps. Yes it does all look homely and nice.


yes! I do the same - I'm not the only one!!! The management here complain regularly about the state of our house and I just push at the bits of thread and try to poke them under the piano/cat bed/cat/small children's bums and whistle to myself pretending not to hear.
What you must NEVER do is invite me round, although you'd find that after I left there'd be much less stuff for you to dust (and my previously empty bag would be bulging at the seams with all the stuff I'd snaffled)


Oh yes, cleaning to order! A phenomenon I know very well indded (sadly)!

But your place is looking so bright and welcoming. Hooray!


Isn't fascinating when your nest is all cleaned and tidied up?
I did the same today and the funny part is that I actually enjoyed it. I love the pictures of your house, it looks cozy.


Now then Lucy, what can I say...such kind words in your blog, I am very lucky to have your friendship! Your house is just as I imagined...very cosy and very you...it had a very special warmth and can see why you fell in love with it. I too had a wonderful day..meeting your fellow knit and knatters...seeing your favourite parts of town...it is nice to know you are settled in your new home. I will certainly be making my visits more often....we have lots to catch up on and important crafty ideas to discuss, have a great weekend, see you soon x


Dear Lucy,
You home looks so inviting, I imagine the sun would coming streaming through that large window, onto your table with the hyacinths in the cornish bowl. How lovely..
Kathryn in the Loft


Your home looks just beautiful - I'm sure your glad you had a big tidy up! So many gorgeous bits and pieces.


Ah yes, all that cleaning and the catalyst that gets it going is so great. However, I just bet that your home looked just fine even before!

Cheers to having old and new friends come by to share time and interests ... much better than any dusting/polishing that might occur before.

I do thank you for getting me interested in getting my crochet hook into lots of stored up yarn. Might even finish a special Christmas present.


Hello Lucy. This is the first time i have visited your blog and I love it! Off for a read through now xx
