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

From the glimpse in the bags it looks like you got some lovely things. Looking forward to seeing more.


oooooooooh, exciting things!!!!!!


I just cannot wait to see all your goodies, boy Lucy i am very envious of you, cannot remember the last time i did shopping like that. It does make you feel wonderful doesn't it, but you cannot look at the receipts - that's when reality checks in and you try and think, did i really need that? What the heck life is to short, if you can't treat yourself there must be something wrong, especially after all the hard work us woman do, we go unapreciated!!! Enjoy your day it sounds bliss.


I do envy you that long day in London. Your plans for today sound very good also, particularly the part about someone making lunch!

Love your color sense, which rings forth in each of your photos.

Best wishes from another knitter/crocheter.


eee! I cannot wait to see what you got!


Welcome back! So glad that you had an absolutely fantastic time. Shopping tired is the best kind of tired. Can't wait to see what you got. :~)


oh, roll on tomorrow :-) i put a post on my blog and mentioned a northern bloggers trip to the next fair as so many of us want to go but never get round to it so well done for your long but totally worthwhile trip !

oooooooh can't wait to see what you've got, it's looks good. Glad you had a good time, think I'll try & go again next year. Take a look at my last post, my cat Zoe is wearing a lovely crochet flower!! One of yours of course, enjoy your lazy sunday :)


Great shopping, lucky you. My coffers are looking a bit mothy!! Still the gallery I went to today took every last item I had with me including thw new stuffed brooches and necklaces so that should help. xxclaire


Ah, looks like a fruitful trip! Come on, get unpacking and photographing.


Well Lucy, you know how to increase the suspense. And you got Libertyyyyyy! I wish I was with you yesterday, see you tomorrow!


Looks like you had a great, if v long, day.
I so wish I had been able to go this year.
Looking forward to seeing your purchases.
Enjoy your sofa time.

Oooo You lucky lucky thing. I can't wait to see what you have got. But just so you know I will be very very jealous, you will be able to feel my green eyes through the computer screen.....I must stop now or you will think I am a ravin' loon :) See you tomorrow!


Hey! What are you doing posting on a weekend! Looking forward to tomorrow. See ya then. Fi x

Oh,you tease! Can't wait to see your goodies tomorrow.


I think it was good !!!
happy for you.


Oh My! What a wonderful day out you must have had. I am totally jealous! Can't wait to see all you goodies.


Oh how I would love to shop with you, everything you have mentioned down to a tee is me all over. Will be waiting in anticipation for a better view of the contents in your bag. Next time give me 26 hours notice,and I'll take a quick flight over, and we can ooh and ahh over all those lovelies in the shop together.

I can't wait to see your goodies, you always buy such gorgeous things and describe them like I feel like I've bought them with you, glad you had a fab time? Do you go on your own, I can imagine its rather nice just having you own company!! Claire xx


I just posted a comment on here but it didnt show so apologies if it does appear, I can't wait to see your goodies either, you buy such beautful things and make me feel like I've bought them with you! Do you do the trip alone, its got me thinking how great it would be, no kids, peace, going into the shops I want too....hmmm! claire xx


Come on then, you must be ready to unpack those bags and show us all the goodies by now, surely! We want to know.


Hi - do you know anyone that does crochet left handed - I used to do it but need refreshing!! Have you seen any books on it?


Hi Lucy it was sooooooo lovely to meet you at the fair; love those tea towels and unfortunately I didn't get a chance to shop! Really pleased to be back home now though. Look forward to seeing all your goodies. Kathyx


What an absolutely lovely time you must have had, Lucy, and being tired after such a day is a small price to pay... I am in fact quite envious of your shopping spree in London as it has been too long since I had the same opportunity. I am also quite envious of your totally delightful cornish ware bowl of spring bulbs. The sight of it really did lift my spirits which tend to be on the low side this time of the year (spring and summer is what i "live for"...) and the lovely bowl with its contents really did make me think of the delightful time to come.
