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

I loved your photos of York.- a special place for me too as I met my husband in york and we had our honeymoon there because we loved the city so much.
I have been inspired by your blog to crochet again and am making a summer square blanket- you forgot to remind me about all the ends to sew in! best wishes to your family.


What a lovely vacation you had!! I so enjoyed your pictures, thank you for sharing them with us. They make me miss being on vacation myself!
I think your cozy is still adorable even if it doesn't fit (:

All the pictures of York make me want to go again, we had the same week away, and enjoyed the spectacular storm too. I see the setting of a great seed with the cafetiere cover, look forward to seeing that. I also had a bit of a none starter with my holiday projects, the cottage was too dark to do my canvas work, and I decided the yarn I brought with me to knit a scarf was all wrong!!!!! Still I came home filled with excitement and energy ready for the off!!! ;-)


Thanks for showing me York. Now that I'm here in the UK I've been wondering where in England to visit. York looks like a nice place for one of my weekend visits.


must make one of those lovely stripy cafetiere cosys for our ancient, 'televison-less' caravan too ♥


York looks incredible! A few days there are definitely in the books for me, sometime in the future! It's really nice to hear that you had an enjoyable vacation! :)


Lovely photos ... I almost feel I was there with you :D


It sounds like a lovely jolly :-) I've never been to York - so many awesome places still to visit. Wish I'd seen more when I lived there!

Beautiful pics Lucy! I love York, it reminds me of Diagon Alley from Harry Potter, all the cobbled streets and strange mis-shaped shops. Was there many yarn shops there, it's been a while since I was last there? x

I love your photos of York - I'm glad you had such a lovely week! It's a shame about your cafetiere jacket, but I still love the photo with all the co-ordinating stripes from your blanket and tray as well :)

I've just finished my first ever crochet bag from your marvelous pattern by the way and I'm so chuffed about it - so many, many thanks for that! :D


Wonderful pics, Lucy. I love every photo that you have posted, but, the spiderweb :-) Nature is so subtle and magic...

Thanks for sharing!


Wow! We've been trying to get on that sites for years...... After seeing your photos I'm going to try again. :-) Not been since I was little (ish) myself. Beautiful photos. And I love that you don't have the usual microwave, TV, etc. Although I don't know how you manage without an awning..... only me, DH and 2 dogs and I sooooo need ours - if only to escape, no matter what the weather, from them all with MY vino in a tumbler! LOL! Yup! Me too. TFS your lovely holiday. Jude.x


I suspect that if you measure carefully and write down the measurements (and don't lose them) you can continue to enjoy the vino and still produce a well-fitting cafetiere cover.

Adding York to my list of "must see" locations if I ever get to your side of the Atlantic.

Love all your pictures of York - just breath-taking! Being from the western United States, we don't have old, beautiful architecture like that. So thank you.

What a lovely holiday you had! I work in York (although sadly don't live there!) and cycle along the river to get to work past your little caravan site. Very beautiful it is too (York, that is, I don't really go in for caravan sites myself...).

Must go on holiday there soon! I only ever see the route from the train station to the office!

sweet sweet! It sounds like a lovely trip! Your photographs are lovely, thank you for sharing them here!


Thanks for sharing your lovely holiday. I'm very envious. I lived in the Uk and often visiting York to visit a relative that lived there and loved wandering around the city. We have our own York an hour from Perth, Western Australia - which is quaint and boasts a lovely old Church (200 years!!) But doesn't quite cut the mustard of its namesake!! Viewing your blog and wonderful photos is one of my treats - thank you!


What a lovely holiday! Thank you for sharing it with us all!

Sandi Lee

A perfect week, I could do with a holiday like this, somewhere to rest your head and eat without all the work that goes with it. York does look a great place, do love the little streets.

Absolutely charming! It sounds like you have a lovely time camping and visiting York. Those pictures just make my heart happy :) I'd love to go for a stroll one evening through a place like that and I know exactly which dear friend of mine I would take with me! Such a beautiful place. Thanks for sharing the experience!


How beautiful! Thanks for the evening walk through York.

Sounds like you had a wonderful holiday, thanks for the beautiful look around York, I love that blogs like yours give me a chance to see the north of England (where my mother came from)from the other side of the world, I wish she was still here to share it with me...

Does sound LOVELY, i agree there need not be any of those fancy things, simple times are always the best memories!

Lisa Clarke

Beautiful scenery! I am struck by the fact that it is still light out at 9pm there!
