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 your blog. Beautiful. Wonderful!


Your story is lovely!


Love your site,todays post brought back fond memories of the TV Show ..All Creatures Great & Small. I loved that show when it was on here in Canada, the dales always looked so lovely and the scenery superb.


I know exactly what you mean about these days of stillness and agree that when they drag on and on it can make a small family feel like caged polar bears....
I laugh every year that on family holidays its compulsory to be stuck in the rented cottage for a day - trapped by rain. Over the years family inc. grandparents have evolved from Championship dominos, to junior monopoly thru' junior cludo to Star wars monopoly.
Last summer, for the first time in a decade we had 7 days of continuous sun.. my not-so-little-anymore-peeps insisted on a games day as their holiday wasn't going to be complete without it.
It seems we have all learned to relish & value the still days! Hugs to you & yours :)


Totally inspired by your blog, I can't wait to make your flower hanging, thank you so much!
I found a great pattern for daffodils in crochet and had great fun making this little bit of spring.

Love all of your posts! PLEASE NEVER apologize for the off moments You post: we all go through it.. You are AUTHENTIC and honoring where you are and allowing us to share in this with you validates our times feeling the same things!!!! I like You adore poached eggs and recently learned how to make them, my favorite way of serving them is on a bed of steamed spinach! Seeing yours sent me directly to my stove - Oh heavenly goodness.. Inspired again thanx!

Wow, now I really want to try to do poached eggs... ha ha. Love your "Nothing in particular" post, some days are just like that - nothing in particular, but still include lovely colors and flowers and beautifully poached eggs :-) !

This post right here is what I love about Attic 24 x

"poached eggs", such a simple pleasure!

I'm sure it's just the wintery weather that's making you feel hemmed in - we felt like that at the weekend, so decided to drive out to Ilkley and had great fun walking around doing a multi geo-cache. If you can't shake the feeling of wanting to get out and do something, i can highly recommend the activity! Well, apart from the final geo-cache...we narrowed it down to a tree, but couldn't decide WHICH tree...got back to the car to find hubby no longer had his glasses! A frantic search of Costa and the car park, then another look round the tree...and his glasses had fallen into the river whilst he was looking rather over zealously! Oh well, at least they hadn't floated downstream, and we did get some exercise!!


<3 you! <3 your home, and your homeyness, it all gives me so much hope that one day I can have such wonderful colors and craftiness in my own home. Thank YOU Lucy! <3


Love your drivelling - you can drivel any time you like!

Small Things

I can see from the photographs of your home, you're a hyperactive person! The cold winter makes many go down our energies, but you still will remain active! The world goes on and you can not lose! Stress due to inactivity .... then the mind active and search, as we say here, the fifth leg of the cat!
The stress decreases when the sun rises ...
Beautiful your daffodils! Color your home beautiful!
The breakfast is great!

I am glad I am not the only one who can dribble on about Nothing in Particular. Thank you for this post!!!

Hi Lucy - I couldn't find a way to email you, but I wanted to let you know that I featured several of your tutorials on a post I just put up on my blog about what I think are the best crochet tutorials out there. Thanks so much for your great blogging. You are consistently my favorite crochet blogger out there!

I love your rambles! Have a lovely week!

Angela Rueb

Hang in there, Lucy. Spring is coming as well as brilliant sunshine! If it's any consolation, I'm in Southern California, and it's a cold, cloudy, grey 55 degrees (F)here today.
I check your blog every day to see what you are up to, ...what pictures of beautiful flowers or colorful crochet projects you have posted. So don't ever stop....you are appreciated!!!!


I know the feeling too. That was exactly my week, last week. But today I felt all my energy up again and I did a lot of work.

Enjoy your eggs. ;-)

Joyce Stewart

Yes, we are all feeling a bit lethargic....think we need an infusion of Vitamin D......I love poached eggs, especially when they are fresh.....as for moving house (sorry Heather) - you would so enjoy having room for a garden, it almost seems sinful that you can't go and plant some flowers as you enjoy them so much....and room for Connievan would be a bonus....you could just pack it up at your leisure instead of having to bring it to the house first of all...and ....(Heather IS going to hate me!!) this is the time to buy a house as the prices are lowish...unfortunately you have to sell one too.....


I love to come visit with you, you brighten my dull days tremendously and like you there have been a few urrggghh ones just lately.
I bought myself another bunch of lovely daffys to brighten my mood this weekend.
Happy thoughts to you xxx

Katherine of Kitten's Lost Her Mittens

Hi Lucy! Love this post. This time of year is perfect for hunkering down at home! In our house I've just been pottering around, making it a Home, as you say, and generally just enjoying nothing-in-particular, too. I also feel occasionally that I should get out, do something, see people besides my guy. But this slow pace is what I need right now, so I'll enjoy it while I can and get out more when it's less cold and grey. :)
Love the pops of color in your home! It always brings joy to my day to stop by and see what you are up to.
x Katherine


Lucy...you can ramble all you want because we love whatever it is you're saying :)

You may think it's rambling, but us readers call it inspiration. It makes us grateful for our homes (no matter what the size) and especially our families. You make us want to strive just a little more to make our homes more welcoming and homey.

Thanks for being you :)
