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

Pimms, strawberries, cherries and friends? Sounds about perfect :)


O Happy Days!!! Companionship, crochet and quaffing Pimms....sounds like sheer bliss. Thanks for sharing your lovely night with us Lucy... I hope you have many more! XX


Sounds idyllic


What a perfect evening for you all. We could certainly do with a few more lovely evenings here in the UK to share more evenings like this with friends. Thanks Lucy for sharing such lovely memories.

Oh I am looking forward to sitting down with a virtual glss of Pimms & rading your next post..




Oh Lucy pleasant evening, when you tell the events of your day you have the ability to transport people in your place and make them live that you're living, thanks for sharing!


Lovely! I so envy you having a group to crochet with, maybe I need to start one??
I look forward to part 2 xxx


Sounds idyllic Lucy, we don't have many summer nights warm enough to enjoy outside in our neck of the woods so it was good you were able to take advantage of the lovely evening. Looking forward to part 2 :)

Maggie Cawthorn

Jealous! And not much chance of a similar evening with the weather as it is - will just have to make do with the pimms!

idiosyncratic eye

Can I bring my knitting please?! :)

Rachael Iddon

I feel just the same as the previous commenter, and I notice we share a similar name! I'm just not sure about teaching crochet to other people. Maybe one day. Looking forward to part II


It all looks so lovely - I can't wait to read Part II! Beyond nosey.....!


There is a group of gals that I hang out on Thursday nights. We have dinner and knit and talk for hours. I love this me time. Sounds like you have lots of fun this your group as well!


5 hours! I'm impressed and wondering if you could still take focussed photos for part 2?


Oh lovely. I do adore pimms too!

Delena Johnston

I did get a few ladies together to teach them to crochet but in the end they were just not interested. I have such a passion for it and these women apparently did not. My sister and another friend are really in to crocheting so at least there are some people who treasure this
wonderful craft.

Lynne Gill

....and can I pop over with my quilt? What a lovely post, Lucy; I treasure my 'stitch and bich' friends too, and the hours we spend chillin' in each others' company. I too enjoy an odd glass of Pimms -it's the quintessential English summer drink, isn't it? Now all we need is the flamin' summer!


Sounds great, I'll bring a big summer fruit trifle! Eagerly awaiting the next instalment and wonderful photos! Have been enjoying your blog for a while, I'm from your hometown originally so love seeing the pictures and getting homesick (in a good way!) Have sent your blog link on to my mum who now lives abroad, just know she'll love it as much as me! You're so right about the importance of social crochet - I tried following so many patterns in books and on the internet when I wanted to learn, but only when I sat with my step-mum for a whole lovely afternoon did I 'get it' and crocheted my first granny square!

It looks like a fantastic evening....and what great memories to treasure especially when the evenings are so gloomy and wet at the moment...it seems a lifetime away since our last warm summer evening.

Looking forward to Part 2!

That sounds utterly delightful - looking forward to part two!


You have found a perfect combination of friends, crochet and refreshments. Enjoy !


You're so lucky to have a great group of friends to hang out with. You kind of remind me of the group of women friends in Sally Godenbaum's Seaside Knitters Mysteries. Except obviously you crochet, and don't solve murders!!! But other than that...
Looking forward to tomorrow's post.

Claire Jackson

Oh Pimms! I'm in! My favourite drink too, made even better when drunk with friends in the sunshine, bliss! Here's hoping for plenty of Pimms opportunities to come. Can't wait for Part 2.


You can add me to your list of learners because I only ever succeeded by following your instructions and photos!! x
