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

Good gracious, am I the first to comment?
Lucy, you even make bad weather look beautiful. Great pictures! Hope you feel better from the cold soon!


Beautiful Lucy, extraordinarily beautiful. The lovely colours all around and as always your super photographs. Hope your cold clears up soon.

Hope you feel better soon Lucy, I was wondering where you were I usually takre a look every couple of days! You have inspired me so much I have tried a lot of your patterns in fact just finished a huge ripple blanket in all my fave blues, purples and greys and really pleased with it. Another thing I have done is the wall hanging but have used the flower from the blooming flower cushion and worked in gold, brown and yellow to make a sunflower top, it looks great! If I can work out how to post the photos I will put them on for you! Thanks very much. Keep up the good work!


lsnt it always lovely after rain- everything so clean & smelling so fresh...
l am facinated by your night photos..
our nights over here get dark after about 7pm.. Would be nice to be able to take nice bright photos at night...
l love the photos of your canals, with all the gorgeous coloured boats..
Best Wishes from Australia..


The photos of the canal are gorgeous, I particularly love the first one. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Fabulous photos. It's wonderful to have the light evenings and early starts isn't it even if it's not summery all day! I think many of us lose our blogging voices from time to time but it's good to see you back.

I want to go walking to see your beautiful landscapes too. How inspiring. Hope you're feeling better, there's been some weird bugs around. Xx

It's so hard to be positive about the weather we are currently having ...but you manage to make it sseem bearable,Lucy.Your photos are lovely and as there is absolutely nothing we can do about it we have to embrace it.I wish I could have seen your kiddiwinks in the rain.....children just love the feeling and the sensation of getting soaked to the skin whereas adults worry about getting everything wet and catching a cold...blah...blah.I reckon sunflowers on a purple barge will be a sight to behold.Enjoy your week.

wonderfull pics - i like your blog

greatings from germany


What a beautiful pictures, i love the ones with the gorgeous sunset.


Dear dear Lucy, I love your blog, and especially how you take us with you on your little walks and journeys. What I love so much though is how you appreciate LIVING, and LOVING your family, and ENJOYING everything about our wonderful Creation. It blesses me so much to read all of your comments, to see your beautiful photos and to remember my natural home .... Yorkshire. I truly believe there is no place like Yorkshire ...... except of course Dorset!
May your cold leave you with radiance in your heart and strength to enjoy the blessings of each day.
Many thanks for encouraging me each visit I make to the Attic.
best wishes to you and your lovely family, Val xx


Lucy, what a lovely place you live in - and what fantastic photographs. We had similar weather here in the Scottish Borders, the streets turned into rivers. I have to confess that I went out in bare feet too, just in my little hidden-away back garden. Yaay for Little B! There's something wonderful about rain on bare skin, but I daren't go any further than the feet! Thanks for your charming blog.

What lovely pictures! Thank you for sharing them with us.


Hi Lucy, nice to read you again. Hope you're feeling better soon! Thanks for the beautiful pics. So lovely colors and great impressions! Greetings from South Germany, Nata


i love this weather.....nothing more spectacular than summer rain and its resulting atmosphere....great snaps


Please spare a thought for the people not so very far away from you, in Hebden Bridge and the rest of the Upper Calder Valley, and now in the North East, for whom the rain has not been fun... people who have lost homes and businesses and life savings, people whose children wake up having nightmares because of the fear the sudden rainstorm-induced floods invoked... and for the rest of us, who are trying to help them.


Ah, I've missed you :-) But I always have a lovely time looking through your beautiful archives! Hope you are feeling better soon. What gorgeous photos!


Ms. Lucy,

Send that rain my way :). The pictures were wonderful and "green".



I love the pictures of the canal so perfectly calm and still! I agree the purple canal boat with sunflowers would be spectacular. We once went on a canal boat holiday and I would love to go again.

Hoping you feel better soon!


Lovely Lucy, I've never commented on a blog before but just wanted to say THANKYOU. I learnt to crochet in January from a friend and I thought I loved it, but then I discovered your blog and now I adore it. You make me want to crochet so much more and make your lovely patterns - especially the happy flower, oh how I love that flower! But I also wanted to say a huge Thankyou for all your posts where you share your life and take us out and about with you. As someone who is housebound and often bed bound, I have loved reading about your daily life and your wonderful picnics (oh how I wish I could do that!), what the Little People are up to, and your beautiful, cosy home. A huge Thankyou Lucy, and I hope you feel much better soon. X


Lovely photos of the sunset.
Glad you didn't get washed away last week, I did wonder when the weather reports were so dire for the north. xx

Carolyn Johnson

Missed you these last few days. Your postings and photographs always brighten my day, even in all this grey weather. The sun is shining down south today hope it is the same for you and it clears your cold.


Glad you and yours were safe in the storms that betterd the country. Super piccies on your evening stroll.
