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

Dearest Lucy, you are soooo right to live life more than blog, and I shall just look forward to your less-often-posts as if they are like special expensive chocs...know what I mean? Have a lovely time with your dear ones. :)


Happy Hols Lucy!

Lovely photos. Enjoy all this precious time with your little ones.


Life can be overwhelming at times, but you´ll catch up eventually. Suddenly, you´ll be sitting there wondering why nobody has called for your attention in an hour! ;-)

Looking forward to the Granny square pattern, am always on the lookout for more! :-)


What a wonderful post just chock full of color and happy fun. :) Your new granny square is beautiful. Have a wonderful vacation.


Have a fabulous week Lucy! ax


All gorgeous but most especially the babe! Enjoy your holiday!


love the new granny squares Lucy, enjoy your holiday, and your little ones , thay are grown befor you know it, my boy is seventeen and seems like only yesterday we were sharing his colouring books.


have a fantastic holiday with your gorgeous family and connievan, your granny stripe blanket looks fabulous as does the new sweet flower granny square. thanks for popping in to share some of your bright and sunny self.



Such beautiful flowers! The ones called Californian Bluebells in fact look to me more like what we know as Ithuriel's Spear, a common wildflower found in clay soils in open forest, woodland, or grassland in the San Francisco Bay Area. They are so lovely to see, and I'm glad you have a chance to enjoy them yourself. A rose by any other name, etc!

I love your use of color and all your granny patterns - they are a feast for the eyes! :)


Sweet post, Lucy...just like the good old days...a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Lovely! Have a wonderful time away!

Patti Johnson

Lucy, I think you are on the right track to focus on the positive & let the negetive go...I have 2 special needs adult children & until I accepted this as my way of life I pretty much felt the way you described.
Your blanket looks great!
I hope you have a blessed week on holiday. We too will be away most of next week in our camper too, looking forward to some down time from the "normal" routine here! take care!

Sweet Shoppe Kitty

You gotta do what you gotta do!! Just make sure you're making some time for yourself or you'll go nuts!! Always glad to see you on here, but if you can't then it's totally understandable!


Thank you for a wonderful post. What a good perspective to have! And thanks for always being so generous with your hooking and patterns - that square is delicious looking! You have such a gift with color. Thanks for brightening the world :)


What a nice long post! Your kid's doodlebook is fantastic! We all get carried away with life, and we should always be thankful for that!


Oh Lucy I totally understand the "no blogging time" thing. With three children it's hard to have time to do anything for yourself. However, I've simplified my bog posts down to my photos (cause pictures tell a thousand words) and just a few brief words of my own. It still keeps me creative in the photography department and I can still blog when I have time and inspiration.

Your granny stripe blanket is wonderous, can't wait to see more of your sweet granny flower squares. Have a lovely Connievaning time in York!


The Garden Bell - Kate

There it is... the Hobbitland we all know and love. Fresh air, sunshine, green grass, flowers at your feet, laundry on the line, markers in hand, food a'cookn', blankets thrown around, little one a purring sweetie... of and I'm sure a brewski or two around that we aren't seeing...giggle-giggle.... Sweetie, post when you want, post when you feel like it, post what you want, just know we all will always be here awaiting... Love the new grannie. Interesting, very interesting, my dear Watson. Sherlock will be trying to figure this out quickly, but first I must finish my Circles of Love, Friends and Life with my Luc Pak... Coming to the final stages of last round and then altogether.

Have a Florally Beautiful Weekend,


Kate Bruning

Absolutely and utterly beautiful - from baby toes to blankets. You don't need to blog all the time to be fabulous - there is always so much colour and content that it leaves you feeling satisfied for a week! Love Kate (the greedy one) xxooxxooxx.

Marian M-S

Ooooo! I love the flower granny square! I will I will I will make a blanket some time...I just need to practice some smaller projects first...maybe! Have a wonderful holiday!


Yes Lucy, such a truthful and heartwarming post. Take the extra time for you and the little ones but most of all, find some alone time for you to do whatever you want to even if it is just to say aaaaaaahhhhhh! I wish I had listened to the more experienced Moms who told me to make time for myself. Now I can tell you the same--listen to all of the women and Moms of the world who know this to be true. Have a lovely weekend! Lovely Connievan blanket #2.


Lucy, Lucy, what a fabulous post and what a fabulous job you are doing of growing that little boy!!!! So bonny and boys always eat loads!!!! Enjoy your time in Connievan hope the weather improves and by the way your new square is going to be THE next project for the world!!!!!x


What a lovely blog and gorgeous photos too Lucy. Thank you once again for sharing your life with us. Love your new granny square. Have a wonderful holiday.



Cindy Rush

Lucy - LOVE the granny stripe blanket. I'm hoping to have mine finished by next week so I can start the new blanket with you!

I totally understand being too busy to blog. My posts have gone down too. As a matter of fact, my husband and I are so busy right now we have to make an appointment to see each other. It's ridiculous. Something's gotta change!

Enjoy your Connievan Holiday.



What a thrilling post! Sweet Baby Boy peeking out from behind those gorgeous flowers, baby toes and hands, Oh My!! Have a wonderful (7 whole nights!)holiday. xxxxxxxxxxxx


Wonderful post again Lucy, I love the new square.
Have a great week and a rest.
