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

Where has the year gone? Feels very much like Autumn here- hoping West Bay looks that good when I'm there in two weeks time!
But I shall pack my woollies,just in case.


Sounds like you've had a wonderful time. The summer has gone so fast.


Glad you had a lovely holiday.Love the colours in the baby blanket you are making (your friend will be very happy)can you please tell me what yarn you are using?


Hi Lucy, so nice to catch up with you. Yes, it's been a great summer and I hate to see it end. We are also getting fall like weather and not to mention hurricane Irene which we managed to do Ok, but many around us did not. We lost 2 shopping center and our only sewing shop. It's sad! I loved your post and all your summer goodness. Have a good rest of the week. xoRobin❤


It is feeling much cooler in Yorkshire now isn't it. I had to tell my OH a few days ago that we are not having the heating on until Oct! Just incase we have a bad winter where it's on almost 24/7 for 6mths!!!!

I've assured him that his granny stripe blanket will be ready soon (I decided sharing the 1st one was not an option - cos I didn't want to share!!)

great to see you are back again! I am not sorry its the end of Summer - I love Autumn the most and summer has been so dull anyway in the big city - just overcast, 'nothing' most of the time - there have been a few good days so mustnt be a 'grumpy old woman' too much! Look forward to your posts about the holiday . x

Wonderful to see your lovely views, Lucy; autumn arrived here in northern California as well. Leaves replacing summer’s verdancy with fall’s vermillion.


I would like to see Summer slip slide away here. We have had a very hot and dry Summer. We are in a terrible drought and have to ration our water and the temps have been over 100 degrees every day for the whole month of August. Goodby Summer and come on Autumn, please. I am glad you have enjoyed your Summer so much, maybe ours will be better next year....................Thank goodness, nothing ever stays the same for long.

I'm loving your baby blanket so far. I rather like the stylecraft browns, having used them recently and I'm rather fond of the Mocha, have u seen it? I like the mocha with pink at the moment! Fab holiday pics!


Love your pictures and crochet!!!!


I too am sad to see summer go but I am thinking of autumn colours, speaking of which I have Stylecraft Walnut, I do like brown though!


Hola Amiga Lucy, good to have you back. I love fall but I'm still savouring those last weeks of summer and waiting to move in our new home in South Surrey BC, settle down and hopefully finish some of my WIPs. I really like to see aquas and browns together. :o)
Cuidate mucho! Hasta pronto,
Gloria x

I can't wait to see the finished blanket brown and all! Summer seems to have flown by but with that horrible nightmarish heatwave (Canada) in July I'm fully ready for my woolies and fall lovelies.


Lovely photos, especially that 1st one. Stunning and colorful.

Your little part of the world is just so interesting. A place to vacation. And the great part is... you get to live there.

I always look forward to your posts. So full of life. Thank you. And never stop blogging.

We love you!!

What nice photos to gaze at Lucy. How wonderful that you enjoyed summer with your children so much. I did, too. I'm also allergic to brown and was absolutely surprised to see it there on your table, for sure!


Lucy, this year does seem to be speeding along. I so agree.

Brown yarn? Isn't it interesting to add a new twist to your familiar colorways and see what happens?

Let me also tell you again how much I do enjoy seeing these occasional photos of the view from your Attic. Every season is lovely!


Teresa Kasner

Welcome back.. I'm with you on thinking that summer was just too fleeting. It's been grey for 3 days here in Oregon.. it's supposed to be 90 degrees next week though, and we're off on vacation in our trailer to an Indian hot springs resort in the high desert of Oregon that has a HUGE blue pool! I look forward to seeing your next project. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Erin Adkins

Wonderful pictures as always, Lucy. I can feel summer slipping away here in Ohio USA as well. Days shorter, evenings cooler, high school football season, kiddos back in school. I love those lazy summer days/evenings when there are no schedules to keep, no homework, just doing whatever comes to mind. *sigh*

Love the thought of brown next to your lovely color palate. Can't wait to see the finished project.

Here in Oz we are feeling the warmer days creeping up on us and I must say it is nice to spend a day soaking in the sunshine. However my hubby and I are crazy rain and cold weather fans (i know, I know..weird!) and so we too shall mourn the passing of our favourite season. Good luck with the baby blanket - can't wait to see it finished!

Shirley Flavell

Lovely pictures Lucy, I do so enjoy seeing out of your attic window. Today is the 1st day of Spring for us and it sure has lived up to it's name. Lovely bursts of bright sun then cloud comes over and rains. Windy.Some coolness to the air but definitely changing, don't have to have the heating going as much as previous weeks.Lovely colour outside with the camellias, spring bulbs bursting out everywhere and the rhododendrons in full bright dressage.I have been crochet rippling away for the last few weeks and on a mission to finish before it gets too hot to have wool on the legs!!(Your pattern is great).Good luck with your brown wool . Shirley

Taking Heart

Top of the morning to ya A24... how are you? It has been a beautiful last part of August here in the states... we spent a family fun night with beautiful weather to watch an outdoor movie... Mary Poppins...

Happy Birthday to your little man... drink it up... My Middling recently turned ten, and he is struggling with still wanting to play with his guns and swords... and sometimes wanting to be cool like his bigger brother... time flies... 10 will sneak up on you!

Hope you are well, it's been a while... I'll try to pop in more often to your neck of the world!



Well I am certainly looking forward to turning my calendar...as a matter of fact I turned it all ready:)I wish we had rain and drizzle and the temperature would drop it's been over 100 degrees where I'm from :( I personally don't like hot weather, but again your blog has made cheery and I wish you luck on that baby blanket:)


Sounds like a lovely summer. I hope the good weather continues over there into September :-)
But at the same time I am so excited it's spring here today!


Hi Lucy,
I recently discovered your blog while searching for a Granny squares pattern and now I visit everyday for some much needed colour (it is the first day of spring here). I love hearing about all your projects and have started to make myself a crochet bag. Keep up the good work!


Hi Lucy, a lovely end of the summer post. Happy Birthday to your Little Man, 9 is such a fun age! We have had a similar summer here in the Pacific North West, and it seemed to go by too fast. Love your crochet and 'sugar stealer'. I don't think I have ever heard that term before, you will have to explain! xx
