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 ALWAYS get that urgent feeling of must-be-near-the-sea-soon in early summer. It sucks that we literally live in the place furthest from the coast in England. It has to be a proper planned trip, not just a quick nip down to the beach or a day trip. We all still go shell collecting and have certain other things we MUST do if we're on the beach, like making a sand castle and paddling in the sea. And we must eat chips. I love it and want to go so badly now! Looks like a lovely day out. :)


Sand in the boots!
I love your pictures!


Oh, the sea. Yes, in the days BC ('before children'), I was a maritime lawyer. I miss the boats and the ocean. It's timelessness, and yet ever-changing wildness. I KNOW that one day I must live in a cottage on a headland overlooking the ocean. It is a visceral need-type thing with me, too.

Glad you had a lovely day, and yay for Little B's beach-combing, that's hilarious!


Lovely photos! What a marvelous time you had and such a wonderful Mister to take you there.

Fleur Cotton

What a lovely day! and what a kind husband you have too.

Will your outing give you ideas for a seaside inspired project?

I have the 'need to be near the sea feeling' - a lot. I wish we lived near the sea really, but unless we have some sort of major windfall I don't think it's going to happen!!

We take niblet off to the coast when we can, usually to Crosby beach, as it's probably the closest nice beach & niblet thinks my photos of Anthony Gormley's sculptures look like gingerbread men!!

Ah, so cute that one little stone. That made me chuckle. We are lucky to live close to the sea. I think I would miss it if I couldn't just have a quick jaunt down there when I felt like it. I've been wondering if you would be interested in my last blog post, which was about a visit to the seaside. We went to see the yarnbombing at Saltburn. The knitted olympics have caused quite a stir in these parts! Maybe you have heard about it already? If not, pop over and have a look.

Looks great! Those surprise days are just the best.
I could never live too far inland!

Linda Solaiman

Sounds like a perfect day Lucy, I feel as if I have been there with you :)


Beautiful photos. I love the little houses, very cottage-y. Would love to see some family photos. What are your kids names?


I always forget quite how much I love the sea until I visit it!

Trudy McLauchlan

Sounds like a perfect day. One little stone and a whole lot of memories from it.


A day trip to the sea is a perfect thing. Do you know the Alfie & Annie Rose story about 'Bonting'? Alfie finds a stone that he keeps but is distraught when he takes it to the beach and loses it. If you don't know it, it is in a collection by Shirley Hughes called 'Out and About with Alfie & Annie Rose' (I think that is right - it has been a while). Think you (& little B) would really like it if you don't know it. Lovely post x

I can almost smell the salt - lovely!

Teresa Kasner

I can totally relate! I have seafaring blood in me and love the ocean. We have 5 days reserved for our "caravan" in an ocean front park near the end of April for my birthday! I can't wait! I'm so glad you had the day trip to recharge your sea dreams. I put photos of 4 of my grandkids on my blog if you want to see them. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Deco Cat

I have been desperate to go to the sea and my family like yours have been reluctant to come with me. SO glad that you got to go and have such a lovely day with your husband and your gorgeous boy.


I too start to crave being near the water and am feeling it now. I love lakes, rivers, streams. Any water will do :)


We are right in the middle, well away from the sea.In Holland we lived a couple of bus stops from the sea, I loved it.Miss it very much...one day I'll get back beside the sea- it was so nice when the wind brought the smell of it inland.


It sound like an incredible mother's day! Oh I dream to see the sea once again. That one looks amazing.

Cindy aka Yarndevil

Oh, those little people will long for those family trips to the sea when they are older.. but yes that is quite the trek for them! At least it is for fun!! Thank you for sharing the pics! Beautiful post!


Oh how wonderful for you and J, and yes even littel B!! I am envious of the day well spent. It sounds like you had such a lovely time together, even if you didn't get the full beachcombing part accomplished. There's always the next time! ;-)
Enjoy your evening!


i'm not a beach/sea person. however if i lived only an hour and 20 min away we'd take our kids to the beach quite often! i can't believe anyone would complain about that short of a drive!

btw-found your blog thru pinterst which i'm sure many ppl have and i quite enjoy it. mostly for the crochet. but also your other posts are quite interesting as well.


no swimming??


Lovely photos! Living in central Canada, I only get a sea fix every few years. Thanks for taking me with you on your day trip. ;-)

How lovely. I dream of camping the way you dream about the sea. I love spending time in the woods, close to the water to hear the waves crashing in. I am determined to take my 3 granddaughters for a week. Probably not this summer. 5 yr old Mia, still isn't ready. I haven't been able to go for 7 years because of my Great Danes. It isn't easy to find a dog sitter for 2 Danes & 2 Yorkies, not to mention my 2 birds and 5 turtles. All my dogs are VERY senior and don't do well camping anymore.
Back to you, I am glad you had a wonderful day.
Let me just tell you, I am SO addicted to your hexagon "squares", your Happy Flower, and your bird. I haven't picked up my knitting needles since I discovered your blog. All I do now is crochet. Your projects are so Happy.
