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

How funny, I read that as "Nooky" goodness, going on in your bed!!!!


Always interesting time visiting with you and your family! :) Yep, a clean house sure does make us feel good!!! :) I wish I could get my sewing mess cleaned up, then I'd feel much better. Hubby does the gardening here. He planted some grasses outside...you know...those really tall kind of grasses. They are so cool the way the blow in the wind! Welcome back home! ♥♥♥


It sounds like you're really getting back into the swing of things, post holiday. I'm looking forward to seeing which colors you add to the ripple next. Mine is on hold until then, so I've started a granny stripe blanket. Life is so boring without something to crochet.

Goodness Lucy, I really don't envy you that weather! I remember that damp chilly bone-hugging cold from my time in the UK when it sometimes seemed as tho I'd never be warm again!!! Your ripple is looking gorgeous (as always) - almost ready for huggles and cuddles!!! Take care. lol xxx


It's grey and cold in Dorset too. I had to smile at your shopping trolley, you must take a photo of it all laden with food! I love your butterfly in the window and those wonderful daffodils.
Hope it soon warms up!

I have house envy. I dream of a house with knitted/crocheted items at every turn. Btw I nominated you for an award on my blog :)


I've been doing some cleaning today in preparation for mum mum coming to visit us here in Ghana, so we have had pretty similar days! I plan a day of yarn happiness tomorrow! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Lx

The ripple looks fabulous and the cakes delicious!


Saturdays are always cleaning day at our house. I love your home and I love when you share pictures. I always get some nifty decor ideas from ya! I also get inspired to do things...like make those cupcakes!


Wow, i love your home and blog! I get serious withdrawls when i can't read your blog for a while! I wish my home could look as homely as yours. I seem to move junk around mine a lot, but we're getting there. Where did you get that fabulous butterfly sticker with 24 on? Ibve got a serious case of the wants!

It will be Connievan season soon! And time for summer ramblings. The clouds will pass.


Liked the idea of you with your pushchair shopping trolley! Last year when it was really snowy I took the plastic sledge to the supermarket and dragged a whole week's shop home in it - it was great, I felt very adventurous:-)


:-) I am happy: i have the same lamp (fungus) here in Svitzerland:-) Bye Cornelia

Great to see another post full of colour. Do so admire the spirit with which you 'blessed your house' - I have slacked off lately - too much other stuff happening.

Do mind the cover of your mini greenhouse, Lucy - we bought one for me and put it near the kitchen wall - first really bad winds and off it came and ripped. Just sayin'.

Must be off, kids will be skypeing from New Zealand - hurrah, 'hugs' through the computer screen!


Lovely post.......oh how I miss my pushchair shopping trolley!


Well done for writing such a lovely positive post and beating back the gloom of wet weather and post holiday-ness. The sun has been out today too- hurrah! Love the heart cake decorations. My boys have really got into cherry bakewell style fairy cakes and your hearts would be perfect for those. Very curious to know what the embroidery threads are for???


I enjoy your updates so much. I am trying to be inspired by the laundry and Home Blessing here but I need an attitude adjustment. LOL. I'm going to start a ripple blanket just as soon as I finish my hexegan. It was also inspired by your BRIGHTS. Thank for sharing your day with us.


Paceful photos, as always, thanks for sharing, Lucy, kisses from Spain.

Loving your neat and tidy and cheerful living room! It's inspiring me to get about my home blessing -- thanks!


I saw this crocheted flower bag on another blog (http://lidialuz.blogspot.com/2011/08/prenuncio-da-primavera-bolsa-de-croche.html), and immediately I knew this bag is your kind of bag. I adore the colours and flowers. :-)

Ahhhh, nothing like a dust, wipe and fresh flowers to lift the mood. Fresh baking definitely helps too :)
I'm dying to hear about the bowl of thread.....


Love the cute light-up mushroom! Didn't realize it lit up when you bought it! Adorable! Welcome home! It's good to have you back!


Ohhh yum!! I've had lots of days to catch up on so have spent a lovely few minutes curled up on the sofa reading your holiday exploits. Your blog is so amazingly homely - thank you for sharing your corner of the world. I read avidly but don't comment all the time. xx


Lovely post, you're making me want to spring clean! We had one of those greenhousey portable things last year, am sure will be fine where you live, but on my windy island it flew around the garden like something from the Wizard of Oz, depositing cucumber, chilli and tomato seedlings all over my lawn and driveway! We found cucumbers growing In very strange places ... The plastic boxes with lids on that you get strawberries and mushrooms, etc, in are great propogators to plant seeds in and placed on a warm windowsill will get your plants off to a good start. Have a lovely weekend xx


I love your home. I wish you were my neighbor.I'd hang out with you all the time:)
