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

Your hooky day sounds perfect - I call it 'Mothers respite' if I ever get a day off! As for the park, it looks absolutely worth a train ride, you are right, once you have children you become a park critic!


Hurrah for outdoor time!!!
That playground looks amazingly fun!
Good luck with getting your Mummy Crochet Time tomorrow, I look forward to seeing the results!!

L- I'm so glad you were able to get outside & revived! How lucky you are to have such fun outings "close" to home. let the little miss know that her stripey stockings are MOST befitting an outdoor adventure! check out tangledhappy.com for a great purse project for her! :) -jenn


Wow that yorkshire inspired post looks fabulous! As does East Riddlesden

The peak district is still under the clouds of grey and gloomy and it's quite windy and very chilly still so I'm desperate for some sunshine! I need a surge of joy at the moment too!

What a great start to half term, hope you enjoy the rest of it!


whoops, meant to say Yorkshire inspried PARK above, not post! sorry!


That playground looks AWESOME!! I've always been a huge fan of parks and would have loved to have gone there when I was younger (or that it was acceptable for me to go there now!) Have fun hooking tomorrow.
Alice :)


Huge congratulations Lucy on your Inside crochet blog award hugely deserved

Much love and admiration




Those crocuses are beautiful! My wee boy has really come to love the park over the summer months - although he still needs assistance getting on the swings etc - and I'm not sure what I'm going to do when winter comes around and we are cooped up inside! I will be watching the sky for a break in the weather to get out I think :-)


Lovely pictures! My dream is to see your part of the world one day before I'm too old and gray. Your wonderful pics just make me all the more eager!
It's just as cold and dreary here in the northeastern part of the US (Pennsylvania)
Take care!


That's exactly what you needed, Lucy!! You've been having what we call here in the US...cabin fever :)

Thanks for the lovely pictures :)


Thanks for the outing! It almost felt like being along for the ride.


I'm so glad you managed to get out with the children. I miss my half term holidays now the children have grown up!
Your photos are lovely especially the crocus showing spring is on it's way!


I love your posts. You make me miss England so much! There is nothing like what you've pictured here in Canada - no grand old manor houses or castles, no ruins, and our cities/towns are not walkable at all. Sigh. Someday I'll go back and visit my Yorkshire relatives (Dad's side) and my Hampshire relatives (Mum's side).


Well done on getting outdoors - I love any chance to be outside... especially if stripey tights are involved :)


Lovely blue sky! Sounds like you had a great day out. Good luck with the hooky time tomorrow; we are all waiting with bated breath.....


Oh how I long to see a blue sky, it feels like weeks since we had anything overhead here but grey, grey cloud. Good luck with tomorrow's hooky :D

Helpful Mum

I love that park - my kids are off there tomorrow with the childminder as I'll be at university.


I loved seeing these outings!They reminded me of my days in Kent!AriadnefromGreece!


You are gorgeous Lucy. So happy the sun came out for you.

Looking forward to your tute!

I will be 'tuning in' tomorrow to see if there is progress on the happy flower. Well, that's after I've taken my littlies to the local RSPB place to dissect an owl pellet and create a food web. I hope the cafe there is as good as the NT one you went to. Happy half term.

Trudy McLauchlan

What lovely adventures outdoors!! Enjoy those bursts of sunshine :- )

Jen Y

You live in such a beautiful place & I love how you focus on the beauty.


Looks like a lovely day or two.Splendid!


Being from Florida... Is that normal to have so much snow and then go to green grass in a few days? I'm having so much fun looking at your pictures and comparing our environments! Your colors in your crochet have also been a HUGE inspiration for me to live with more color!

Glad to hear you sounding brighter! Those days out look wonderful!
