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

That suncatcher mobile is gorgeous! So cheery. Hope you are feeling better soon, enjoy the quiet.

These were just the pictures I needed this morning!! The cozy lemons and honey, showy sunflowers, sparkly burst of color in the suncatcher. Mmmmm! This is why I come here. I'm ready to start my day.

Enjoyed all your holiday snaps thanks for sharing!, love the sun catcher little things like that cheer me up to. look forward to the reveal!


if you'd like a laugh, go to youtube and search Most Wonderful Time of the Year-Staples Commercial.

It's a hilarious video about going back to school.

Can't wait to see the new hooky business!

When my three were little we had a wonderful toy shop in the Docks in Gloucester - they sold traditional old style marbles and lots of other fancy ones too in all different sizes. We would add to the collection each time we visited the shop. The kids played with them a little bit but not as much as I thought they might. The marbles then spent several years in a drawstring bag hooked over one of the children's bunk bed posts until I decided that really I had probably bought them for myself and so claimed them putting them out on display in a square glass vase on my hearth. Like you I love their colours and enjoy them anew


hope you're feeling much better very soon...loved the flowers and the marbles...i was such a tomboy when i was young...and had my own large fabric sack of them.
those were the days :)

Greetings from warm and sunny northeastern Pennsylvania...Dear sweet Lucy...today is Labor Day here in the USA...a holiday for workers, although all the stores are having Labor Day sales, which means a lot of people ARE working. Commerce can't rest! For us, it is the official end of summer...my grandmother always said not to wear white after Labor Day. Schools are already open, Fall is in the air, and the stores are full of Halloween decorations. I don't like to rush the seasons, even though Fall is my favorite. Here in PA it an absolutely gorgeous time...Nature goes all out, painting the trees brilliant colors of red and orange and yellow. If you visit the States be sure to come to the East coast in the Fall...incredible beauty.
Sorry you are not feeling well...please rest and take very good care of yourself!! Emily V.

Hi Luce,
Yes, hoorah for today and back to school though my day so far has involved boring stuff like washing and food shopping. Hope you feel better soon, enjoy the rest.
There were some new things in Girls' Own Store on Saturday, particularly some new rather divine Greengate goodies with a paisley pattern on them, tins, jugs, bowls, teatowels. I resisted but did buy a lovely book in there, which features, Sara, the shop owner's cottage. More of that soon! Looking forward to the big announcement.
Love Hen x

Hope you're well again soon, and looking forward to Thursday to see what you have to show us! :D

Even though my kids are young adults, I can still remember that tiny sigh of relief that school had started back. Love your holiday photos and I have to agree the swirly-wirly hedges are beautiful. Hope you are soon feeling better. from Jenny (Melbourne, Australia)


Can't wait to see what you're crocheting now! I've just taught myself to 'ripple' this lunchtime with your amazing tutorial - thanks for the extra help on working into the foundation chain, it made things go very smoothly for me! I think I might make myself a scarf...

P.S. Hope the honey and lemon are good to you.

As always a lovely bright and inspiring blog. Do hope you will soon be 100% again. I too love the bits and pieces you can find in the Saturday market at Bridport and the Girls Own shop is a real find for browsing isn't it?

Get well soon.



I remember how that was, that first day back to school. We were always excited to have summer vacation and just as excited to go back again...Mom included :)
Can't wait to see the new WiP when it's done.


I hope you are feeling much better soon. We are three weeks into our term and already tired of trying to be everywhere and with the right books and gear at once. I hope the routine settles in very soon. Drink some tea and rest. ~Kelly

Exciting project! Can't wait to see :-)


Hooray from me too! (said with mummy love of course!) Lovely to have the house back though...enjoy! x


Hi! in France, all the kids went bach to school last week, and I've got red flowers on my table :-)


Hope it is manuka honey - that is the best for a cold! ;-)

Lovely colourful and cheery post despite you feeling under the weather. Hope you get better soon.

It is lovely to have the children back at school though.

Hoping your feeling better soon Lucy.

It must be nice to have some me time - do you work? I'm always trying to figure that out - I figure your crocheting is somehow work related? Judging by how quickly your embroidery pictures were snapped up I reckon you could make a great source of income with your many talents!:) I love the stained glass hanging by the way - so sunny and pretty!xxx
