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 love love your blogs and keep coming on to see what you've been up to. Thank you for sharing. Beautiful words and photos.
You are inspiring.


I can do excellent victoria sponge too Lucy. Yep, every time a winner. Unfortunately what I can't do is to get my sewn in ends on my ripple scarf (rico baby cotton)to look neat. They're all shreddy and lumpy and sticky outy. Aaaargh, the frustration! Any hints or tips? Your blankets always look beautifully finished.


it does look good... I wish I had more time and inclination to bake! Having a wheat intolerant other half doesn't help though, I haven't mastered the whole gluten free baking thing yet!


Ooh one of my favourites,that looks so scrummy, i feel a baking urge comming on.
Have a lovely evening :)

Looks lovely!

I haven't made one since the one I made at school either.

Thanks for sharing the recipe.


Victoria Sponge is my very favourite kind of cake ~ it looks absolutely delicious :O)cc


Yumm.y yum yum yum yummy yum yum. Dang....I'm on a diet:( looks lovely though Lucy!


Dear Amiga Lucy,
That cake looks delicious/delicioso! Sunday baking is a great idea. I was thinking of cinnamon rolls, but I'm going to make a chocolate cake and vanilla. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Take care! Hasta pronto,
Gloria x


my ABSOLUTELY favourite cake and that looks tremendously scrummy... I am only disappointed that you didnt invite me for tea!! luv it!!


yum yum, and just when I am trying to convince myself that I should only do 'Healthy' baking with lots of seeds and nuts this month!


Lucy I have tried MANY times and NEVER made a cake by hand and made it rise! I have a chocolate banana cake recipe that is made is the blender and that does rise...I shall try your recipe and promise to show you the results! :)x

Yummy, I stopped myself from cake ingredients at the grocery this morning. I got stuff for brownies. I like them but can say no. I can't say no to a cake like you baked. That is the only way I can be good. Otherwise, everyone has a slice and I keep eating cake. Lol.


I think I am the same as you - I don't think I have cooked a sponge except for at school in Home Economics! And I seem to recall that the recipe was a little heavy on the bicarb soda, pretty yuk really. I make cakes all the time, but mostly banana cakes or chocolate. Maybe I should give the old sponge another try!

I love the look of the cake, and your photography is brilliant. I feel hungry now!


Oh Lucy, That cake looks ace ,yummy scrummy in your tummy .Unfortunatley cake is out of bounds for me now as back on S. W.

Uhhhhh. Victoria Sponge.... Mmmmmm. No more Cakey Bakey for me until I have lost the Chrimble pounds though! Shall just have to imagine. Your pics help (or should I say, don't help)!


Yummy! A cake I love to bake too - soft margarine makes this the perfect spur-of-the-moment recipe in cold winter kitchens! ;o)
