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

PLEASED TO HEAR THAT Little Man is on the mend and your photos are stunning!!! Happy Christmas to you and all your family.


OOooops! Now where did the capital letters come from? Probably from typing in the dark! Happy Christmas.


Hi Lucy
I think I' ve finally found a way to say thank you-for all your wonderful photos and words and...for finally teaching me to crochet:)
Happy holidays


What kind of birds are those? Love the bright clear pictures! Blessed Christmas to you and yours.

Happy Solstice! I like the description of those rays of sun being 'God's Glitter Ball". Glad your boy is feeling better.
Thanks for all the lovely posts. I really look forward to them.


You take the most beautiful pictures and I love seeing the scenery almost as much as I love looking at your crochet...LOL

You've probably posted an answer to this question before, but I'd like to know what kind of camera you use.

Oh, yes...what kind of birds are those??? Very interesting looking :)

I'm soooo glad Little Man is feeling better. Can't be sick for Christmas, now can we???




i like these pictures!

Dear Lucy the photos are great! I love your optimism that the amount of daylight will be more tomorrow something that you share with the lovely MrA. Do you both know exactly how many minutes and seconds that will be? Just joking!! xx


I feel the same about the Winter Solstice. It's so nice to know that the days are starting to get longer. I've greatly enjoyed your blog since a friend sent me here earlier in the year. I am an American with a heart for England and love seeing your photos of the lovely English countryside from my home in North Alabama. I wish you and your family a very happy Christmas and look forward to reading more from the attic in 2012. Most Sincerely, Debra


I love the Winter Solstice,it's absolutely worth celebrating. Here's to longer, brighter days. :)


Wow, such beautiful pictures!
So interesting to look at them on the other side of the world where it was the longest day of the year. I always feel a little bit excited that I get to celebrate my birthday on the longest day (!)
I wish I'd taken some opposite photos as I sat in the summer sunshine in the local park with friends and their kidlets. The canopies are lush and green, and the sky a deep blue. And thank goodness (living in Australia) the grass is still green too :-)


So pleased to hear that your little man is feeling well again, and just in time for Christmas.


I am so happy Little Man will be back on springy, cheery form for Christmas. My little man is coughing away but with time, love, and a bucketful of simple pleasures and Christmas magic he will be back on form.

Happy, joyful, peaceful Yuletide to you Lucy.

I love the winter solstice for its poetry and the fact it is our wedding anniversary.


So happy to hear the little man is feeling better!


You have the most beautiful walks! Thank you for sharing the gorgeous scenery.


Your photos are always lovely, but today's are gorgeous! I especially love the clouds. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Your photos are wonderful and you are right the light is lovely at this time of year.
So glad you take photos of the clouds too, many people never notice them.
Hope you have a happy Christmas.


I am so glad he is doing better...and the pictures are just amazing! :)

Merry Christmas and may this new year be filled with new fun things to stitch :=D



Thank you for the lovely photos. So Pretty!!


Thank you for the photos. They are beautiful as usual. Just amazing scenery, I wish I could walk right over for a hike. Those birds, were they real? or a statue. They were the oddest looking things, in a neat way!


So glad your son is feeling better. That was a long time to be sick! Happy Christmas!


So glad your little man is almost 100% back to himself. Loved seeing your stunning day! Merry Christmas Lucy and family! xoRobin❤


Amazing photos, please tell the story of the metal birds sculpture! Glad LM is doing better and wishing all at Attic 24 Happy Christmas, Love from a faithful reader.


Glad Little Man is feeling better. I am so envious of the fresh holly. We can't even buy it here. I grew up with a holly tree in the front garden and miss it so much at Christmas.
