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

I am going up to the Lake District on Monday - and was rather dreading it given the weather - but now your lovely pictures are making me look forward to it. Grey is the new sunshine!

Mariana

Thanks for sharing your week-end, it's always a pleasure to read your family "adventures" and see your beautiful pictures. You are like my personal guide in this part of the planet!
On the other hand, I can't believe you're opening an Etsy store... Bravo! It will be a success, I'm sure!

kathy

Hi Lucy, your photos are stunning. I adore the Lake District and remember my school trip to a Youth Hostel there (near Hawskhead I think). I love the picture of Coniston. I really felt I was sitting on your sofa muching cookies and drinking coffee isntead of freezing my bum off in my studio making more bloomin' necklaces! Hey ho. Kathyx

Nicola

Lovely photos and words as always Lucy. The Beatrix Potter exhibition looks lovely as does Parma Violet! Off to have a look at their mail order items.

I never ever been to the lakes *blush*, it looks so beautiful, I should go. I promise I will.

As for the etsy shop - WHOO!

Josie-Mary

What a lovely break....I was thinking about the great holiday I had in Kirby Lonsdale when I started reading this, I couldn't believe that you mentioned it. It was back in 87, we went to Beatrix Potter's house... so beautiful... thanks for your kind message :)

cherrie

Grey is really quite beautiful when it is outside, don't you think? I never knew a youth hostel could be so cosy and clean. I always picture them as dirty hovels - kind of one-star hotels but this is really lovely. Cherrie

Hen

Oooh, now that's interesting, I was only just thinking about fellow bloggers and how many sold their wares and I wondered if you did. Look forward to your grand Etsy opening. Looks like you had a lovely weekend but boy, it looked freezing! I've heard a lot about Parma Violet, lucky you for visiting.

hello Lucy

Glad to hear you had a great time. I LOVE the Lake District. It is so fantastic. We used to camp until the end of October each year. So much nicer when it is nice and quiet! Not that it would be in November for us anymore as we take our own noise makers with us anyway!!!!

Good luck with your Etsy shop.

Love Emma xxxxx

Oh Lucy, Kirkby Lonsdale is one of the places that I've been going to forever. It was one of our favorite places as children, one of the bext picnic, paddling spots.
The weekend sounds glorious, I'm going to have to explore the YHA!

Hi...we have been to the lake distict a few times and it has always rained so Polly has very negative feelings about it...although the rain doesn't stop me looking at all the wonderful shops and drinking hot chocolate in tea shops...we did the Beatrix Potter museum and I loved it...I also loved her house...they give you one of her books and you have to find the inspirations in the house for her pictures...then there is a lovely pub down the road...used for Jemmima Puddleduck...but having said all that about rain....it is quieter and like you, if you are lucky you can happen on spectacular weather...which youth hostel was it?? Loved your pictures...love H from Leeds

Liz

I am so glad to hear you are opening an on line shop. I was going to suggest it to you as your textile pictures are really wonderful. You have an eye for colour and style. I really enjoy reading your blog. It makes me feel calm and centred after a stressful day at work. Did you get y our shopping trolley by the way?

Gem

Lovely pictures - I was in that corner of the world a few weeks ago and it is a beautiful place. Very excited about you opening and Etsy store (although it could be dangerous for my pocket!)

We are regular visitors to the lakes. Thank you for your photos, they will keep me going until our visit next year. Kirkby Lonsdale is already on the list of 'to do' places as we are staying in the south lakes this time.

Brrrr it looks so cold! But ever so lovely.

Roanne

Love the photos Lucy! Coniston looks so beautiful. I hope you were all wrapped up nice and warm. Have you decided about the gorgeous green Boden coat yet?

We visited the Beatrix Potter exhibition a few years ago and our little people loved it. We went twice in one week - the second time was because I managed to get lost on the way to somewhere else! We stocked up on Jemima Puddleduck pencil sharpeners :)I must get the books out - we haven't read them for ages.

Can't wait to visit your Etsy shop :0)

Thanks for taking us along on your week-end! It would not have been what I might have wanted because it was so cold (warmer weather -YES!) but you made the trip lots of fun and now I put the area as a favorite as I hope to get to England in two - three years. Next year is Brazil! Judy

That photo from Coniston Water is just stunning!

And I love the Beatrix Potter dioramas...I have a soft spot for Ms Tiggiewinkle.
