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

Dear Lucy,
What a colorful, creative mind you have and I feel so lucky to feel that I know you from your blog. I just bought some primroses and the small purple blooms look as if they are floating on very long stems.
I love how you see color everywhere.
I hope your April will be as wonderful as your March, eventually anyway!


What a beautiful March, although I think you find the beauty in everything. Happy April!

Truly Myrtle

Ahhh yes, March. She (for she must have been a sunny she, no?) was lovely. And, April...not so good. At least the rain has made all the green look really rich. But I remember fab easters in the past, so I am quietly crossing my fingers.
Loving your hair and it's a good reminder that mine is also a shaggy mess. Must take advantage of Mr Myrtle being home next week to get a trim :)


Ah Lucy ~ March was indeed lovely in my little patch too. The weather has been vile in Scotland too the last couple of days~wind,rain,hail,sleet and snow! Not the kind of weather I was hoping for in the school holidays. Like you we have been snuggling up on the sofa in our pyjamas to compensate for the weather outside. You look very lovely with your new hair cut ~ I'm well over due for a cut too, about 7 months for me I think! I must try and get around to visiting the hairdresser very soon. Hope that you are all feeling much better and bug free now :O)xx


I love your blog! The colours and flowers and plain happiness in small things are so cheering. Thank you for sharing your life with us.


I'm new to this blog and have been so incredibly inspired by the colour and creativity. A psychotherapist friend (I'm one too) asked me last night what it was about the colours that so inspires me and which has me hooking late into the night and I could only come up with words...... fresh, alive, fun, awake, energy and.... rebellious! Its a little hard to be sitting on warm Autumn (Australian) nights with a growing heavy granny blanket perched on my knees but its exciting to watch it grow.

I should tell you that I found you through a friend that has a similar caravan fetish... um I mean interest! She had seen a photo of a caravan interior with a bluey and red granny square rug and asked me if I could replicate it. Once I tracked down the photo to your blog (God bless Google), I was hooked! I hadn't picked up a needle for about four years (the degree got in the way a bit) and am now a bit oveerwhelmed with all the possibilities.

Love it - thank you!


Yes, March was full of lovely weather. However I don't think we can write-off April yet - I know the weather's been rubbish so far (especially up north - it's still kinda sunny down here), but we're only a few days in! And there's lots of nice thins happening in April (like Easter :) ). And lots of plants will start to appear and grow :) April's a wonderful month! Let's hope there's plenty of sunshine to come!


Your hair is lovely :)


Yes, I wish it was March too - can't believe I was paddling in the river with the little fish just last week! The hills here in North Wales are white too. I worry about the poor birds starting to build their nests and lay. But perhaps we'll be running around in flipflops and summer dresses again next week :o)


What gorgeousness - March beautiful wasn't it? I can't believe you have snow, how crazy is that??


Makes a change for me to be in at the beginning!
I love your posts, they are so energetic, lively, colourful, optimistic, inspiring, creative, and above all, highly readable. Some blogs, well you know sometimes you skip a bit here and there as they do go on and don't hold your attention - well mine anyway. As I get older I have less patience with bothering with stuff that doesn't grab me and hold my attention.
You have inspired me to do so much more with my crochet than I did when I was younger - ie your age - and I have loved it.
I have loved reading about your family, memories of when my own sons were small and the fun that could be had with the simplest of things.
Enjoyed your outings as I know some of the places you visited, and it was nice to revisit since I now live too far away to do so myself.
Am now enjoying watching your dear little backyard area burst into colour... looking forward to the arrival of the small potting shed and the painting thereof!
Have been privileged at being shown your lovely home, and the fab views from your attic - a bit green with envy about those views I have to say!
So thank you for sharing all of this and more.

March was a beautiful month. :)


its been trying to snow here in north wales!! last week i was wearing a tshirt. now im back in cashmere! oh the joys of English weather


Hi Lucy,

I must say, we had a mild March too. And so far, our April is going well. We need rain though. Like the new haircut. I got mine cut too, in March, but I could go a little shorter I think. I wanted to let you know I made another Crochet Bag! Only I made it smaller (that last one just came out too big) and I lined it! LOVE IT.

Hi, Lucy! Your enthusiasm about life inspires me to make the most out of mine. And your hair looks fab! Can't wait to see your upcoming projects.


Congratulations on your shelves. Yes, you did it!


Ah, March, yes, was indeed beautiful! And April, well.... I'm hiding out in my little attic here, listening to the howling wind and watching the swirling snow, snuggling a hot water bottle and eagerly awaiting a phone call from the boiler man who will hopefully be able to fix our broken central heating - eeeeeek!

April hasn't been too kind so far. But April is my birthday month, so I always have a fondness for her really...

I have the opposite here in South Africa. Spring is slipping away and Autumn it in full swing. I do love Autumn in Cape Town. Lovely sunny days, not to warm and no wind. Can be a bit of a pain in the summer. Lots of bank holidays and the best time to go to the beach! I do love you blog. I am married to a English man and use live in England for 10 years. I am missing it everyday. SA has wonderful advantages, o but nothing beats England! Thanks for sharing all the little things with me that makes your country GREAT!


Lovely mosaic, as always!!!! Have a wonderful April, ;-}


Love the photo views from your Attic. Makes me wish I was back in England. Where I live is always the same sunny or rainy days, nothing changes much.


Love your hair and you look great. Your photos are really colourful and fill me with happiness, we have snow on the hills but not much. Do you mind me asking you where you got your lightshade in your diningroom, love it soooo much.


I like your hair cut. It looks "sassy" :).

So glad you are feeling better.

Lucy, who cares about the weather.....lets crochet !!! :)


Thank you for such a colorful and lovely post. I love peeking into your corner of the world through your writing and pictures.


Lynne Kovan

Lovely post as usual. Glad you are better. Soon be spring proper.
