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

Another beautifully family centered post Lucy - thank you for sharing your very special ordinariness with us.


Beautiful pictures!!! Love your pictures out of your attic window, the sunsets and sunrises are amazing.
What a lovely knitting suitcase Little Lady has, a nice hand-me-down toy for Little B, and great origami being made by Little Man.
Your Christmas decoration looks good, can't wait to see how you tweak it.
Blessings to you and your beautiful family.

Lovely as always. Can't wait to see your christmas decorations.

Best Wishes


Hi Lucy
Have been following your blog for a while now but never commented...but had to after seeing your sofa den - for a minute I thought you had crocheted a huge car!!

I can still remember den building behind the sofa and under the dining room table...so nice to watch one's own children enjoying some of the same things one did as a child.


I do wish blogs had been about when my bigs were littlies. How lovely to have such a record of your children's growing up.

What a lovely October. I adore that owl quilt!

Hello Lucy's Attic -24. His life is beautiful, full of color and love. Best wishes to you and your lovely family.


Hi Sweet Lucy, So enjoyed your post today. Just plain simple lovely moments! You captured them all at their best. Thank you, xoRobin❤

Its so lovely that your children make dens with the sofa just like we used to (but with sheets) and that you let them. I'm sure there are plenty of mums who would not want the house messed up like that, they would say it is too untidy. My children used to play trains (or was it buses?) on the stairs putting cushions as seats. That sort of play is lovely.


Ah what lovely photos. Really lift the spirits when they are low. I am new to blogging and new to motherhood (well relatively - my little one is nearly 10 months now and I don't know where the time has gone!). I was inspired to begin blogging about my family life and crafty things because of you, I just love reading about your extraordinary life, it's simple but lovely, and it really makes me appreciate the simple things in life and take stock and enjoy every minute with my own family, so thank you for that.

My favourite pictures are the one of little B's wee toes and of course the picture of the fire with the toes nearly in it!

Can't wait to see the christmas decorations (I'm making some snowflakes as inspired by you at the minute) and the latest update on the ripply blanket!

Hah! I see Little Lady has inherited her mummy's colour sense - love the peek into her Knitty Case.

You are constructing a precious, living record for your family to look back on - how wonderful, especially with all the comments added. They will look back with great pleasure in the future.

Thanks for a lovely post.


i love the views of your mountain. it really kills me, the permutations of light and color.

Erica Jenkins

delightful! and why have i never thought to pull my sofa away from the wall in order to let the littles set up fort behind?! brilliant idea! all my littles are currently piled into a tent-fort of their own making in the middle of the room and they are going to be thrilled with this new plan!
always love your posts and views from your attic window- they always bring a little peace to my spirit.


Lucy,you've inspired me to take more pics of the stuff my kids are up to. I just don't do it enough. I lurrrve your new dec. Love it! x


Dear Amiga Lucy,
That’s right. They grow very fast. I’ve enjoyed watching our boys growing. They are so grown up, so smart and clever and so lovable and delightful. Reading your blog, I’ve been able to see what a beautiful happy soul your kids are, and I know in years to come you will look back fondly on this special time and be forever grateful you captured these moments.
I love the blanket and pillows tent it looks like a little caravan. Your crocheted angel looks very cute. I’m thinking about making some stitched ornaments for these Christmas.
Take care. Hasta pronto,
Gloria x


Just look at the pics from th attic window, amazing that they were taken in just one month!

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness

Beautiful indeed!


My Monthly Collage reflects me, it is a splat of scruffy mayhem each month! Your photographs are beautiful. I love the knitting suitcase, the sneakers and scooter and my favourite was those gorgeous little feet and the toy train. I want to build a den too! :)


Such a lovely post. Thank you so much for sharing.

Hi Lucy, thanks for the visit today. It is a good time of year to just enjoy being in your cozy home. We have a fire in our pellet stove. My hubby had a hernia operation yesterday and I brought him home from the hospital today. All's well, I'm making him relax and take it easy.

Have a wonderful November! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


A beautiful post as always. Your lovely bright blog has influenced me to start my own blog and to buy a little caravan. All the best for November.

Shirley Flavell

Loved your post Lucy. Crikey! now it's only 53 days to you know wot. Loved your attic views. Here in N.Z.we are having true Spring "stuff" but where I live it's very warm. The roses, Rhododendrons, spring flowers looking glorious.Don't feel like crocheting or knitting though,but that's ok, will embroider instead. Keep warm and best wishes to you and your family Shirley

I love your daughters stash. My baby is 6 and has just recently been building a stash too. I was yarn shopping and she asked for two balls to make blankets for her baby dolls. I got them for her of course. I was so proud when she started needlepointing a couple of months ago. Now time to learn crochet. I am sure your daughter is just as lovely as you are. Your entire family is lucky to have such a loving and creative Mother.

Sandi Lee

Oh, big sigh Lucy, we celebrated my youngest childs 21st birthday last night, the years just fly by, so I think blogging about your family's life is a wonderful way to look back and reflect and remember all the wonderful memories that you are building.
Photos are beautiful btw.
