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

Hi Lucy - That 'me time'.... I remember it well. Those stolen moments that you grab with both hands!!! Glad you managed to finish your bunting. It's great when a task is complete especially during such a busy time. lol x


Happy New Year to you Lucy and your lovely family ... feel like I know you in this wonderful world of blogland that we share! I remember that ME time so well and I am glad you had a lovely treat time for YOU!

Love to follow your blog.
Maybe it is a foolish question but why don't you make your own dotty candles? Buy some white candles and some coloring pens for candles and "dot away". Maybe you can use other kinds of coloring pens for the task?


Me Time! What's that? It doesn't happen very often, but I'm quite sure that I would spend it doing exactly the same sort of thing ~ a cup of tea and something hooky probably. I just love that picture of little B's toes ~ so very cute! :O)xx

Awwwww - don't you love it when that happens and I do love the 'candle' touch though I'm sure our ancestors would curse (a lot) having to work by candle light.

So nice to see your tulips are still going - my fell over - literally - a couple of days ago. I think it's too warm in our front room now.

Happy holidays to you and your loved ones,

take care,

Nina xxxxxxxx


Even though it is fantastic mid summer weather here in NZ, your post made me want a cold rainy day so I could justify sitting by the fire to knit, all those lovely colours in your bunting - look forward to a photo of the finished piece.

Fleur Cotton

What a lovely way to spend a few hours - I feel very jealous. You bunting is coming on well and look forward to your ta dah! Have really enjoyed your blog this year after discovering you at the end of 2010. I look forward to all your posts and hope you continue so enthusiastically into 2012. I wish you and your family a very happy new year. With Love Fleur x

I noticed your new mug first thing and then you commented on it. I love mugs and have my favorite for my coffee. I hope the New Year brings you and your family everything you want and need. Thanks for your blog. I truly enjoy it.


Lucky you! Well done for seizing the moment ;-) Looking forward to seeing the finished product.


Lovely! It's great that you get so much from your 'me-time' - I've always found it difficult to relax into my me-time, possibly because my kids were such light sleepers as babies that I never knew if I was going to get 5 minutes or an hour and a half, and had all the half-drunk stone-cold cups of coffee to show for it :-D. Good idea to make a little ritual of it!


Hello Lucy
I discovered your marvellous blog earlier this year and is now a regular part of my day to check in to see your latest post. As others have already said, it is so inspirational and beautifully written. Thank you and Happy New Year to you and your lovely family. (Looking forward to seeing the bunting ta dah soon)

awww lovely and i had a lovely cathy k mug from a gorg friend 2 ...... just love them .... and your blog is just fab a real pleasure to read ....thank you :)


Hi Lucy
your blog got a mention in an article in our main broadsheet newspaper in Melbourne, Vic, Aust.

Here's the link. I can scan the article from the paper and email it to you when I get back to work.



Thanks once again for sharing, Lucy. I do love to see your pictures.


Lovely pictures Lucy. I love nap-time - that's when I get most of my blogging done. I only have 1 little person at the moment though so it's a bit easier to co-ordinate I imagine compared to 3 :-)
Looking forward to your year-in-review posts.


I've been trying to get some sewing done, but the weather outside is cold, wet and blustery so the kitten is indoors,looking for a game.Hopeless!I need to sneak inside one of your calm photos with my quilting.


hi lucy, i have been following your posts for a few months and absolutely love seeing your rainbow world. you are inspiring me to be more creative and to appreciate and make the most of each tiny window that pops up now and then.
i am hoping to have an open fire place in time for our winter - it looks so cosy, for now it is sunshine and ceiling fans!
:) smiles from australia!


Hi Lucy from your gal in Canada! Guess what arrived in the mail yesterday? The Cute and Easy Crochet book that I saw on your blog that I ordered. Hope you get credit! The funny thing is I just recently taught myself to crochet. Could be living in a dream world thinking I could make those pretty things. Oh but the pictures! I could stare at them all day. Happy New Year! Love your blog. Always brightens my day!

Nancy Duffer

Hi Lucy,I absolutely LOVED your Christmas posts. The beautiful colored lights from the tree, All of the wonderful colors from the branch decoration, and all the lovely mantels,fireplace ect.I could almost feel the warmth and cozy holiday bliss from inside your home. How J and the little peeps must have loved all the happy colors and christmas memories. Have a happy new year Lucy, and Thank You for taking the time to warm our hearts.Nancy

Mmmmm, yummy baby toes. Don't you just want to kiss them. It's my baby's first birthday today. I can't believe how uncreative I've been. Alas, I didn't get one of those windows of opportunity.

Shelley in SC

Just love those dear little feet and cant WAIT to see the finished ta-dah!! Your ta-day moments always make me feel like I've accomplished something too : ).


That was truly a gift! I know that when we see something that we want to have by purchasing and such, we tend to find all the reasons why we should not. But you said it, it brings you so much pleasure. There is nothing more important in our lives that having a bit of this - pleasure. Things that bring a smile to our faces, that makes us feel special in a small way.

I like this post a great deal, since I tend to ignore this bit of myself and then go about my life regretting not taking a bit of time to just enjoy a bit of 'me time'.
