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

Hi Lucy ... LaVerne here, Victotia, Canada. Went to your site via an ad in Cross Stitcher. Want to see if you had the pattern for the 'bloomingmarvellous' cushion. Spent a lot of time, looking at your travels around England. Made me nostalgic as I was there June 2011 visiting a freind in Grimsby. Had a wonderful two weeks, and saw lots of beautiful country side. Enjoyed your ramblings. But alas no pattern!


Beautiful flowers, the rose looks especially pretty. I intend to plant some roses for next year after seeing so many lovely gardens full of roses whilst on holiday. Gorgeous photos.

The flowers are beautiful! I can just imagine how heavenly they smell. I loved them next to your ripple blanket! And - I loved the picture of your home - getting real! It was wonderful and shows the love you have for your family!!! I always remind myself when things feel chaotic that it means I am very blessed to have so many under my roof to care for. If it were perfectly neat... that would mean I would be by myself... so I am trying to enjoy even the chaos!!!!


Lucy, I wonder if you know how wonderful it is to read the blog of someone as inspiring as you are and realize that I'm not the only one who can ignore clutter and focus on the beauty in the midst of it!! I love, love, love the ripple you are making- -just looking at the beautiful colors is calming!! Thank you so much for allowing us to visit the attic and to continue to be inspired by your creativity!


Dearest Lucy, I love your pictures, home and crocheting, caothic or not...You are my crocheting inspirator :).
Love, Unn


Beautiful flowers! And your colorful house is really such a happy place. I love visiting it in your posts.


Beautiful jar of summer. The one day of sunshine was wonderful ,hope we get a few more very soon.

You do a great job taking photographs. I love the colorful chaos. Who wants to live in a museum anyway? lol


très jolie fleurs, ton blog est magnifique


Hilarious! Hod bless artistic cropping. If only housework was actually that easy! Thanks for sharing the reality as well as the beauty.


Phew. I can't thank you enough for showing the mess! Makes me feel a wee bit better about our house.


I love your beautiful flowers & I'm jealous too. :) My yard is too shady to grow flowers.

I love it that our dining rooms both face the same compass direction at suppertime. Another connection that makes me feel so good.

Lovely,lovely flowers,and your ripple.I've been knee deep in cleaning lately,it does pile up!Never ending job.Here's to more sunny days for you :)


Oh Lucy,
Love the photos of the hooky work & flower jar. As for your house and it's condition of "Well Lived in Early English Creative Clutter" I LOVE IT! Helps people like me to know that clear around the world there is someone like me. A person that is taking time to be creative. When that happens somehow the clutter happens & tidiness goes out the window with it! Yes we must remember to not let it get out of control. But the untidiness will be there tomorrow. Ones creative flow may not be! Thanks for the honest views that help us know we all are not Wonder Woman! Kids, House, Husbands, Crafting. A woman wears many hats in this life. Thanks for sharing all you do with us adding yet another layer to your life. You are amazing! Hugs from FL Donna


Your house looks better than mine, trust me! I'm also annoyed at the slugs this year as they've eaten all my sweet peas. I planted them a few months ago, looking forward to beautiful pink and cream and lilac flowers, and have nothing but chomped stems!

The ripple blanket is looking lovely, by the way.

Good afternoon Lucy! I knew exactly where to go on the internet today for a bit of cheering up. My sister goes in tomorrow for some extensive cancer surgery and I've been rather "blue". Hardly been able to laugh lately and I must tell you that when I scrolled to the photo of your kitchen table I actually laughed out loud and said: "Leave it to Lucy to bring laughter and joy" - you, my dear, do exactly that. Thank you so very much


Actually those pictures make me feel so much better...things are always so lovely on the blogs it makes me feel a bit down! But its nice to find s bit of pure loveliness even in the day to day ummm "disorder" thanks Leslie


Beautiful photos. We've also been enjoying the sunshine today too, after all the rain. xx


Hi Lucy! I would like you to visit my blog as I have written something about you... http://eskuartean.blogspot.com.es/2012/07/crochet-tourcerrado-por-vacaciones.html
Thank you very much for your bog, I love to read it all year round and enjoy everything you do and write!
Have a very nice summer, see you around here!
(and excuse me if my English is not perfect...)

Eileen Collingwood

Beautiful flowers but even more beautiful is the way that you describe them. Your writing inspires me and just makes the whole world seem more colorful. Thank you!


Your simple glass jar of flowers reminded me of my wedding reception, we did exactly the same for the tables. I do so love Ladys Mantle that acid green is such a contrast with the other flowers. lovely

Oh Lucy you are fab. I do love your honesty! So so refreshing and brave. I wouldn't dare show any wide angle shots of my house at the moment. It's all little corners and close-ups for the time being! The flowers are gorgeous. I really hope that next summer I will have more flowers to pick in our garden. This summer has been so poor that we have made little progress with clearing the jungle of weeds we inherited and getting pretty things in. Glad you have finally had some sunshine. We had some this morning and Frederick was able to spend some longed for time in the garden but it is raining again now. Had to do a mad dash into the garden to rescue my washing which is now hanging on the clothes airer in the dining room. Lovely! Fiona x
