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

Dear Lucy bulbs are great this time of year. I was so pleased to see my snowdrops when they first appeared. Spent a day over the half term break
(as weather was warmish and sunny) chopping and trimming in garden.
Planning what to grow but whatever will hopefully be as colourful as possible! Look forward to your project reveal. x


Hi Lucy. Wish I lived where you do. All I have on the ground outside is snow, and I'm getting mighty sick of it. I'm dying for some warmth and flowers and sunshine right now. I'm also dying of anticipation. Where's the promised post on your new "Tiffany Blue" cupboard? You whet my appetite and then you make me wait. Cruel, indeed. Just want to let you know that I think yours is the best blog of all, and I can't get enough. Cheers.


Hello Lucy, thank you for sharing your bulbs and pretty flowers with me this evening. I have been busy knitting this week with one eye on the garden, itching to get out there and start planting (vegetables) - the weekend I think although I am planting 'in tune with the moon' this year so it all depends when the best day will be!

Hi Lucy
We are going into the start of autumn and I am not looking forward to winter but then there will be spring again. Your posts are wonderful thank you - looking forward to your Secret Project viewing. Thank you and take care Vicki

Blue gingham...way to go!


Lovely, lovely post! Isn't spring just the best time of the year? And blue gingham curtains sound just delightful. What a wonderful addition to your Connivan.
Have a great day!

loved the scenic photos.


a very enjoyable, bright and cheery read, thank you! I love to see your calendar pages and view. I know how you feel about the view as I grew up with such wonderful views that I love dearly and I love to see how it changes through the day and through the seasons!


Oh there is nothing like snuggling up under a crochet blanket is there? I am snuggled on the sofa right now, feeding my little baby and looking at the many spring boquets we were sent as congratulations. My favourite being a bunch of multicoloured tulips (must snap them for my blog).

Ah spring, full of hope and promise, is there really a better season? It never fails us unlike the summer which is often water logged!

I've done my bobble stitch tutorial now and since Dotty Angel has just revealed her bobbley crochet blanket it has been viewed quite a bit already. I'd love to link to your basic stitch explainations but don't feel I can without your say so. Please may I?
ps Blue gingham *sigh*


Hi Lucy , what a gorgeous post . I think the sunbathing crocus(es) are my favourite ...What a beautiful colourful sight. I planted some in the autumn but they all seem to be coming up creamy yellow....not sure what happened to the purple ones . Nevermind, great to see yours,they made me smile :0)

Dear Lucy, nice to see you say hello.. very cute caravan artwork! Who did it? I must tell you that we have a reservation at a Pacific Ocean side RV park for my birthday in late April. Ohhhh I hope the weather is fair. Nevertheless I'll be taking a plethora of photos to share. We just found this place last year and this will be our 2nd stay there, I'm just amazed at how close the ocean waves break from the trailer! Just right there!

Hope you get to go on a Connie-van trip soon and share the photos. Hugs from Oregon in the Columbia River Gorge. :-)

Dear Lucy.

Oh how lovely! I really like the snow drops. Spring is in its way where I am too, and I can hardly wait for the cherry blossoms.


Sarah @ FairyFace Designs

O you just reminded me I forgot to post the pic I took of some purple crocuses peeping up in my flower bed which I spotted when I was out in the garden on Sunday taking pics of the quilts I had finished. Lovely cheerful post, it made me smile :-)


It's always a pleasure to drop by to see what is happening in your little part of the world. I love the spring bulbs - just lovely - and the scent....mmmmmm.
We are just heading into autumn here (sub-tropical Queensland), and I'm looking forward very much to the cooler weather.


What a view!!! You're so lucky and it's great to hear you don't take it for granted but appreciates it day after day after day.
Thank you for sharing!
Gorgeous crocuses!!! And snowflake of course!!!

I love your blog - I paid hommage to it on my little blog this week. http://vividengrossments.blogspot.com/
:-) I am even starting to dress in brighter colors because I realized how much your crochet work and color selections cheered my spirit. Kudos!


Wonderful pictures! Lovely spring flowers! And re the crocus(es)...if the name is from the Latin the plural would be, I suppose, "croci," so would it be pronounced "cro-chi?" Now, that really sounds odd. Also pedantic. Too complicated...best call them crocuses.

Rained all evening and most of the night here in Hollywood, but today's a mild day. We have Jacaranda trees all around here, and I'm seeing the leaves paling a bit, as the trees' energies start their shift to producing the clouds of purple blossoms that will begin to appear next month. Ah, spring!


How I love your posts, Lucy! I've lived most of my life near Sydney but spent one glorious year in the UK about 15 years ago. Your comment about the crocuses flinging open their petals brought so many memories flooding back of my first experience of a British Spring. The seasons kind of blur into each other here, and I remember being amazed at how distinct each one was in the U.K. Thankyou so much for sharing the little pleasures of your life!


Happy March :-) For you that means spring and for me it means Autumn - but that's okay I like the colours of Autumn just as much as the colours of Spring. Can't wait to hear of more Connievan adventures :-)


Hi Lucy,
Love your blog.I look forward for a new post from you every morning.Thanks for sharing the little pleasures of your life. Reading your blog,I have started to look for such little pleasures in my life too. Love the pictures too. Keep blogging. They make my day! :)


Every time I see a little trailer I think of you and your Connie-Van. Blue and white gingham would be lovely as curtains.

Thank you for your breath of spring, we're still a bit cool and drab here. Hope everyone is feeling better or is on the mend at the attic. Can't wait to see your crochet reveal....


Aye Lass - only in Yorkshire!

Pen @ Oliver Boliver

Gorgeous bulbs! I just love how they're filled with such promise of spring being round the corner ... X



I must admit that you was this close to draw my attention to this dear signs of spring, buuuuut.......I have not forgotten the new project....you know, the secret one made with your magic crochet....Hmm?
I'm still waiting....


Beautiful pictures Lucy! I can't wait for the weather to improve in this country. I am from Brazil and I miss the sunshine. Well... I just think you are trying to make us forget your new project :-) but take your time if it was me it would take a year to be finished!
