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

Loving the rose - I quite like the size that it is, however I will bow to your judgement as your are usually spot on x

Lovely post as usual. Those daffs are such a lovely colour. Spring looks definitely on the way. Looking forward to little rose pattern.


There's nothing like a bit of sunshine and some fresh flowers to perk up wintertime blues. I loved being in Wales over the weekend - misty valleys at sunrise and breathtaking old buildings in Cardigan town. Definitely a weekend away will perk you up - although it made me very homesick! I've been crocheting daffodils this evening, ready for St David's Day!


That rose is so cute - can't wait for the pattern! :D


Hi Lucy: A great big How you doin'? from Philly. I too bought some daffodils this weekend along with some Eucalyptus. I spied some pansies in your pics, I just love their little faces. They remind me of my grandmother who I miss so much even though she has been gone some 32 years now. I find it truly mind boggling that someone that I have never met and lives so far away brings me such JOY. I pray for you Lucy so that you can overcome your blahs and enjoy the springtime ahead. Take care of yourself and that wonderful spirit of yours.


(((hugs))) Winter blues. Spring will be here soon. And a break to look forward to? Sometimes things just get on top of us and we can't explain why; but we get through it, don't we? Saturdays walk sounds like it was the perfect escape for you; and what a very pretty place you live. Hope J is better soon. Don't forget to look after yourself when you are running round after your lovely family. xx Jude.x

A beautiful, colourful happy post Lucy.Your rose looks just gorgeous.Here in N.Z. we haven't had a particularly hot summer but I have enjoyed what we have had, can cope with the lower temps better.Shirley


agh no, poor J! Being ill on your birthday sucks. Sending get well thoughts!


Gorgeous post, Lucy. I so enjoyed reading it. Thank you. :)


You need to get out of the four walls and into the fresh air sometimes, not always easy when you have 3 children and a poorly man. Lovely colourful post as ever though.


I know what you mean about having flowers in the house. There's nothing quite like it for a bit of cheeriness!


a beautiful post, i particularly love the snowdrops :)
glad to hear J is on the mend and hope he is soon back to full health.
coincidentally it was by father's birthday on saturday and he wasn't very well either (he was recently in hospital and caught a bug there).
my children like making flags and things with which to decorate cakes etc. have never thought of using them to make the house plants more festive, they look cute! the little rose is pretty too.

wishing you a lovely week x



Beautiful :)


despite the weather, it sounds like I would love to live in a village like yours! Love the flowers...we don't have any up yet, even though our winter was milder than the norm here in New Jersey, USA

WOW Simple amazing beauty: what's in walking distance from where you live, the flowers the flags the sweetness of it ALL!!! As always thanx for sharing as you so generously do!!! Special get well wishes for J :)

Ah yes, the need to escape. I fully understand. Your town looks like a lovely place to escape to. I may even have a little jaunt there myself one day as I have a friend over the hill from you. Hope this week is better all round. Supposed to be a big sun over my patch tomorrow. Fingers crossed.


Glad to hear he's on the mend!
Just loving that green wall - my favourite colour.

I think I would much rather live where you live in the winter. There you have flowers blooming. Here, its nothing but brow, black, grey and white. And to top it off, we're supposed to get a snow and ice storm tomorrow. :(

The rose is so pretty and cute! Once the pattern is available, I'm totally going to make one!


Hi Lucy, yay for flags in plants and snowdrops and crochet roses....gorgeous. looking forward to a dose of scenery :0)

Flowers and blue skies = smiles on faces.
Glad to read J is feeling better.

Hi Lucy, Glad to hear J is feeling better, the photos around town were lovely, it blows me away that you can just walk past a castle! xxBrenda


Sunshine, snowdrops, market shopping and a CASTLE!!! Those are Canadian "!!!!". ;-) It sounds like your outing gave you a chance to take a breather and re-energize. Thanks for sharing your lovely mini birthday flags and crochet rose. ;-)


Lovely post Lucy. the weather really does bog one down, but hey it's just a season and they are meant to change. Illness too , I m sure with your care would be well past gone now.
I had done a wreath from your tutorials and some more inspirations.


Time is very beautiful now:)


Oh, poor you. It is horrible when life all becomes a little difficult to keep control of isn't it? Glad to hear things are starting to get back on track. Hope J manages a speedy recovery. The rose is gorgeous, soon as I saw that I thought 'garland'. Bet the wreath idea would be beautiful too.
Look after yourself, Lucy. Keep smiling xx


Good for you for taking a breather by yourself! What a charming Area you live in! I don't remember your patch of snow drops from last year, so thanks for posting these pictures! I love flowers and enjoy your colorful posts. Take care! Spring's just around the corner!
