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

Glad you are finding some lovely things to brighten your day up and soothe your nerves :-)


I can see why your day is going better. My firstborn had awful colic and it got to be so hard to hear the crying and not be able to fix anything. Sounds like just what you needed was flowers,a muffin, and a beautiful catalogue. Hope your little one feels calmer today (and you too of course).

Wishing you a long string of good days with Little B.


I hope you and the munchkin have a lovely, peaceful day with much napping and dreaming and maybe a tad of crocheting, too.

I'm sure the good days will increase over the next few weeks and he'll give his mama a little crochet time too! That muffin looks delish!


Lucy ~ I am so glad that you are having a much calmer day today. There is nothing like a cup of tea and a lovely yummy cake to make you feel better:O) x


Glad you are having a better day, I wish you many more. Thank you for the Sarah Raven link, I need this catalogue....

Shari Sunday

Beautiful tulips and a good friend. Just what every girl needs!


Love love love that you are still squeezing a little colour into your baby filled days x

What a wonderful friend to bring you those lovely and colorful tulips! I'm so glad to hear it cheered you up and that today is going better for you. Give the little man a kiss and hug for me!

Glad you had a better day today and thank you for still finding the time to bring some colour to us in blog land.



Hello Lucy,

A friend bearing bright red tulips would make anyone's heart go a bit skippy. Sounds like that friend's timing was perfection!

That muffin does look like an excellent alternative to home baked.

As you and that tiny little B, with the fabulously sculpted little ears, go through more and more days together I am sure that all will even out. You all will develop a wonderful pattern. (Since I have have never had any children, I don't really know what I am talking about, but have heard this sort of thing from lots of true moms. Also beginning to think that typing about evening out and patterns begins to look a bit like crocheting!)

Anyhow, best wishes, dear Lucy. xo

This is the mystery of baby's universe. He's complaining about something...but what?

Here's a link offering advice on how to handle the situation, should it occur again:

I'm glad to read you are back in your "happy place" with some gorgeous blooms and a sweet.


Nina - Tabiboo

'Ooohhh' I received the same SR brochure in the post this morning, but haven't as yet opened it - right I'm off to find some serious eye candy!!

take care and I hope things settle with the wee one soon.

Friends are just fabaren't they? Hope you get some more peaceful days soon and lots of time for you and crochet and books and of course cake looks very yummy.


Glad today was a better day! Cx


Oh so sorry to hear about the Little One's fussiness. But that muffin....oh my, it does look scrumptious. Here's to you - hoping you have a week of heart skippy days. Take care.


I have always looked forward to your posts, since I discovered you several months ago, but now, due to a mild sort of personal tragedy, I need that dose of cheer even more, and I'm so excited when I see a new post up there. And believe me, if I could come visit, I would LOVE to. And I would bring buttercups (my favorite), you may call them daffodils? I think everything around your home: the colors, the kids, the baked goodies, would help immensely in getting my spirits back on track. Thanks so much for sharing your cozy little world with us.


Surrounding yourself with simple, beautiful things always brings such joy. Enjoy your happy day :)


Fingers crossed that you keep having a calm day with the little one! Its funny but I don't think any one has it just so with their children - mine was as good as gold, slept cooed and smiled through first babyhood but wow did I get the terrible two's! Those with the problems at the start had them all nicely resolved by then and had perfectly behaved toddlers. It all comes out in the wash. In the mean time those muffins look just the thing to cheer you up a bit. Tulips are a huge favourite of mine. I've loved them since small when we had a Dutch themed day at infants school. Since then Dutch cheeses and tulips have had a special place with me (along with clogs and windmills!) The colours of yours are beautiful. I'm glad your friend brought some light to your day, cos sometimes we just need that. Keep having a good day and remember that you are always good enough.We can but do our best!


Your pictures never fail to make me happy.

Love your comment about the muffin!
The tulips do look beautiful! I'm making the most of my roses while they last, it's so nice to have flowers in the house, especially at this time of year when everything outside seems a bit gloomy! x


I understand well why you are so happy today. :)


how perfect your friend is!love her! and i'm glad you are able to get out the nyhhh feelings and not hide the reality of life with a newborn. i hope bumplet will continue to be calm. neither colic nor 'just a bad day'is fun, and can really get in the way of life with the rest of the family. what you are doing is draining, so take deep breaths regularly and know everyone in blogland wishes you and the whole attic crew well. jkj


dang woman. i was out for over a week and how things have changed! so so happy for you and your little family! rest, take care and lots of love from this corner of the world :)
