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

Beautiful post Lucy <3
When we went to Dorset (North - near to Shaftesbury & Gillingham) I was the only one who wanted to do coasty things and can you believe it - A's folks don't DO beaches and A hates sand. Gutted. I will have to show them your posts to change their mind and give us some ideas of where to visit. Lulworth Cove was a big disappointment after loving it so much on my year five school trip there, er, 14 years ago.


Love the photo of the shadow on the hill, reminds me of the Lloyds bank ad!!!!!


How lovely. This quite literally brought tears to my eyes! I truly hope to see these places one day.


Such a contrast to the coast but ever so lovely.


yep, i want to be there, having a picnic, flying kites, absorbing the ridiculous beauty there!!!
lucky you :)

The House of Jones

Stunning photos! Can't wait for the last installment :o)

Oh and Lucy, I have to say a big THANK YOU, for your marvellous pattern... I have finished my granny stripe blanket - gave it to my friend last weekend, she absolutely loved it! Just putting up the pictures over at mine... thank you, thank you for the inspiration!

Just a lovely lovely tribute to a gorgeous section of our world. Thanks for showing it to us.


This is the area in which I grew up too and I have been thinking about taking my children there. I lived in a village called South Perrott and went to school in Mosterton. We loved Eype and Eggardon. I also liked going to Golden Cap, which was good for kite flying. Thanks for the trip down Memory Lane!


More lovely photos and lovely memories xx


I love your Dorset posts. I didn't grow up in Dorset - not even in this country - but visit Lyme Regis every year for a week in February with my dad and my children. This year we started to explore all the surrounding hills. I think it's magical down there and sometimes joke to myself (but it's only a half joke...) that I'll buy myself a house there when I retire as I love it so much.


Such lovely countryside you show us here. Wish I was there right now. Your posts enchant us all I think.


Hmmmm, why do I feel that I want to be in the UK and go straight to Dorset. Truly beautiful photos and your posts are great. Thank you for sharing your memories and family with us.

It's lovely, Scenery you only see in Great Britain. It makes me want to go to England again.

Dear Lucy the comment about taking your little people to the places you
knew in your childhood reminded me that we did this with our sons, I just wish we had taken more photos. Yours are so good and a delight to look at.
Thank you for sharing them.xxx

Your pics are lovely. Here in the states we don't find many places where we can do what you do, it would be considered trespassing to hike up on a hill and picnic, that is unless you know the land owner and have permission. Our life here is so hurried, your life in England seems more laid back. You are very lucky indeed :)

Kate - The Garden Bell

As close to heaven on earth as it gets. Stunningly charming as always. I for some reason think that second simple picture it postcard perfect. So simple, so sweet, so soulfully peaceful.

Glad to see you are out and about. Keep the post coming. As you know I do love a good hike and picnic with you, but next time remind me to take those rocks from the beach out of my pockets. I don't need all that extra weight up the hillside.

Kate, you know who.


I think the area between Dorchester and Lyme Regis is just the best anywhere- and the views from the road between Dorchester and Bridport are magical, my absolute favourite journey, apart from the coast road,which,astoundingly,is even more beautiful.
The distance is Dorset is always so very blue....


Beautiful photos. Almost can imagine being there myself. StC's is just stunning! I can see why you love it so much.

Shirley Flavell

Wonderful photos, thank you for your great commentaries. Showed them to my hubby who is from the UK. he commented that many years ago he did a cycle tour and visited a nearby town called Ottery St. Mary.and it was snowing at the time.I hope one day I can visit the UK.It is now becoming quite cold here in N.Z.Heating on today and some knitting time coming up.Shirley


More beautiful memories. Thank you, Lucy. Jude.x

I read your blog every time you post. I don't think that I have ever left a comment. (For shame!) I am a bit shy and intimidated by your lovely creations and the many, many comments you receive. I resolve to get OVER IT. For some reason, this post has left me a bit teary-eyed. I believe, in part, that I am privileged to see yet another facet of your life, another part of who you are, and it is wonderful.
I wish to be there to see the beauty that moves you and the beauty, I know, that would move me.
p.s. I am going to Google Saint Catherine. Do you think I'll get an answer?
Thank you for the joy here.


Lucy--thank you so much for all your wonderful posts. I really enjoy hearing about your holidays and seeing the lovely pictures you take. It is really making me want to take a trip to England to see this glorious countryside!


Lucy, this post is a joy, truly showing how much love can connect a family. Where that family might travel together to discover old familiar, and also new joys together.

I have visited your site so many times to look, admire and learn crochet tips, but I must also thank you for sharing your fabulous appreciation of the various UK landscapes and the atmospheres of those regions.
