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

Wrap up well, Lucy!!
It's snowing in london, too...but it'll be over by the morning, as usual. My native town in Italy is paralised under 1m of snow and -10deg, I so much Not miss it!!
Have a good night, and a fabulous snowy day tomorrow...

What a wonderful evocative picture of warmth and colour and cosiness inside and cold outside. I love your cosy colourful crochet surrounded corner for curling up in - we all need one of those when it's as cold as this. And a blanket to crochet that grows warmer by the row is great anti-freeze! I love your button jug - I fell in love with that when I saw it in a gardening catalogue and it just had to be ordered along with a few ( ahem, quite a few dahlias)! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and keep cosy!


I can't wait to see your Little Lady's owl! My Little Lady is 12 years old and has always been crafty. She just made herself and a friend owl charms out of polymer clay. I guess owls are "the thing" nowadays. Stay warm! Love your pictures.

Sounds like a blissfully relaxing day!

What a lovely post, I do enjoy reading your blog. In fact, it's because of you that my home is so cosy, your blog taught me how to crochet. Thank you Lucy! xxx


We're just the opposite at the moment, so hot it is difficult to cool down. However there are some lovely dark grey clouds scooting over, oh I hope that means a cooling rain, rather than rain that just makes you all hot and sticky!

My girls have been full of a snotty, coughy cold, Little Miss B seems to have shaken it but it lingers on in poor Little Miss T. How many boxes of tissues have we been through this week? Too many to count!

And why you freeze, we swelter. It's 9.26am Sunday morning and it's already 27c in Melbourne heading for a top of 33c today. Enjoy as we watch in wonder from afar. Vicki.


I don't know if I love the chair nest or the floor nest the most!!!
I think the chair nest wins by a smidge!!!
this whole post is soooo cosy!!
I know what you mean about tables that see so much craft love, we have a large silky oak table, that after years of activities being performed on it, has a layer of glitter, and the odd bits of paint that no amount of scrubbing has been able to remove!!
And I kind of like it that way- it's a tangible visual reminder of the fun had through the years, and the fun continuing to be had by my youngest, who loves craft, and always wants to help with my crochet!!!!
Hope you have a lovely cosy weekend


Oh, what a beautiful blanket you are working on!!!
I have used your ripple pattern several times:) At the moment I'm doing a *wool eater* blanket:)


What a lovely evocative post, a colourful photo essay of your day. I really enjoyed it, thank you.


A very similar day here. My boys have already been out with the sledges just in case it's gone by morning. I have been making Granny squares with leftover hat/glove wool for a matching scarf. No doubt the sledges will be out again tomorrow if the snow is still there. So will the crochet ;oD


We had -36,6 degrees today, no weather no be outside in so we're getting a wild and frustrated boy after a couple of days with only too cold weather to be allowed snowtime with daddy.

Dear Lucy,
That is THE MOST adorable night light ever. I love it. In Georgia, it was 70 degrees today, short sleeve weather, and everyone is rushing about preparing for their Super Bowl parties tomorrow. Kind of fun really, caught up in the excitement of folks just getting together...


Night night, sleep tight, don't let the bunk beds fight! (as my 3 year old says every night). Lovely description of your day. Hope the sledging is fun, x


Keep warm and carry on xxxx

Oh, and did you see that I am in the same magazine as you? My photo I mean, in the new issue of "In Crochet" magazine... I am one of those pictured with SIBOL, I am the third one in the third row...


Oh, it's so true! I mind the cold so much more now than I did even 5 yrs ago. Don't resent my saying this, but I miss my babies being so tiny and snuggle-able. (They're all teens now, and my arms feel so empty!) What a lovely, cozy time you and Little B had by the fire. Your children will have such happy memories to take with them wherever life takes them!


What a beautiful post Lucy ... I like how you describe your everyday life, with simplicity and love! I like the images you choose to represent it. Thank you for sharing.


Lucy! I want to come sledging with you tomorrow! Well, I want to trudge in my snowboots up to the park and take some snowy photos. Text me! xxxx


Hi Lucy, snap !! I've been keeping warm today , enjoying my crochet and country living mag which the postman popped into my hand along with fresh stylecraft suppilies this morning....that's the sort of post I like.
Just been out to photograph the back garden in my slippers after seeing your last but one pic.It was so wonderfully silent except for my crunchy footsteps. I expect I'll be sledging tomorrow too :0)

Your descriptions are so lovely. It's like a mini-vacation every time I read one of your posts.

Sounds like a fab kinda day! It is just wet in Cornwall :-( but on a plus side I got dropped of at my LYS for a little retail therapy! And after getting some scrummy super extra large "Sirdar, Bohemia scarf yarn" and a 20mm hook I now have a Crochet infinity scarf! Also wipped up a hat for my Ickle Boy with "Sirdar Indie" yarn and a more modest 12mm hook. Feeling HAPPY! If you havnt come across the Sirdar yarns I mentioned then look them up, the colour range is Divine! xxx


You look as though you're staying warm and cosy. Enjoy your sleigh ride! My knees have been kept lovely and warm this evening, as I make my round the border of my Gypsy Rose blanket. Flora Puddleduck's house has been moved up to just outside the back door, to keep her a bit warmer (and it's not so far to walk to let her out)! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!


We've been hearing about how cold it is in the UK and Europe. Stay warm Lucy.


Well, Lucy, I have been following the news of English snow all day in dismay. Not a drop here in the frozen North. Lamentable! One small boy and I are quite distraught. Maybe tomorrow! I just wanted to say how encouraged I am that you are still working on the ripple- not finished quite yet, I mean. There are three of us now, hooking away on Wednesday nights in the library where we work, and one of the Monday girls is taking lessons from our resident guru too! We read your site every week for inspiration and then hook on in the staff room at break time. I am by far the slowest of the little group. So thank you for the thought that even in Attic 24 can delight take its time!
