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

Put little b in a bath made with about 10 chamomile tea bags in it - like a great big pot of tea. It will take out the sting and itch really well


I hope your little one feels better and that you thoroughly enjoy your trip!


Hi Lucy - you bring up so many happy memories for me - I think I've mentioned before the little chubby hand of little B that reminds me EXACTLY of my little ones hands (now 14)- but the little truck book brought it all back too - he had a big book of "big machinery" or something and he would read it over and over - big tractors, ice breakers, big JCB's etc. he loved it!! and now Polly Pocket - my daughter loved it - she's 27 - I have a little something little lady might like and would like to send you - if you could get in touch! Enjoy your break away - don't you miss being away when you get back? love home but love the simplicity of being away with just some of our stuff!! lol


Close communities are wonderful, hope little one gets well soon


You have such a colorful life, literally! Even your laundry basket is delightful.

Oh my goodness, I so remember the chicken sickness :) All of our kids had one really bad day, and then it got better. I'm glad your neighbors are taking care of you!
Have fun in Connievan!
I love those Polly Pocket toys. Your little princess has good taste like her mama.


Poor little B, at least it didnt happen while you were on your jollies! Hope he feels better soon. I have to buy my grandson a bubble blowing lawn mower - thats awesome! Looking forward to seeing your new makes. hugs Vix


Lucy- always love your pics!! So sorry to hear about Little B, I hope he is on the mend real soon! As for the bubble mower, what little boy doesn't love that?? Mine loved theirs. Hours and hours of joy!

Poor Little B, I do hope he feels better soon. Hopefully a trip in Connievan will take his mind off his aches and pains. Have a lovely trip, x


Feel for you and your Little B going through chicken pox- hope he's over the worst now. My first class kindly gave me chicken pox at age 22!! From my experience calamine lotion dried out the spots too quickly and made the itch so much worse that I jumped in the shower and washed it off after about 20mins! When my son got chicken pox, the day before his third birthday, we avoided calamine like the plague but piriton syrup really helped. Hope you manage a good break in Connievan and manage to recharge your batteries.


What a lovely little mother you are Lucy - you'll reap the benefit of all your love and care as the children grow older. I love reading your blog and to see what life in Yorkshire is like - I'm descended from two Y. families. One day I hope to go to York.

Lucy your little garden is so pretty! I love all the colour. And those jam tarts look delicious. Hope your little one feels better very soon. x

Hi Lucy, I'm sorry to hear about Little B, but glad he's on the upside of it all. Don't worry about him on the trip - he'll probably perk up a lot getting to play outside and all. We're heading out on our weeklong camping trip in a few days, too! Someone just gave me a whole box of miniature dollhouse furniture, I put a post on my blog, I hope you have a chance to pop over to see. Have fun on your holiday in Connievan! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Hope Little B is on the mend (poor little guy) and that you have a wonderful Connievan holiday!!


When you have a moment, I would love your recipe for your jam tarts. Grandkids are coming for a visit and they look like something we could make and enjoy together.


Also, I see my last comment never showed up. I dedicated a post on my blog just for you. A completely crocheted cover for a van!

Sandi Lee

Thank you so much for sharing your holidays and family life here in blog land. Hope Little B and yourself feel wonderful once you have set off in connivan. It's not the easiest being a mum, being there for all 24 hours a day, sleep is a mummies saviour.
xx Sandi


Absolutely lovely! I always love the homey peeks into your everyday life! Poor Little B. Hope he is soon his healthy little self.


I do hope your Little B is feeling better for your holidays. Such lovely photos as usual. I long to live in such a wonderful neighborhood.


Poor Little B! I had all those problems with sores in the mouth, too, but when I was 11. I'm so glad you were able to get this over before he really goes to school! Much love to all of you!


I hope that Little B feels better soon, and that his illness doesn't wear you/the rest of the family out too badly! I wish I had a miracle cure for you. :(


All the best for the little one!
And I am looking forward to pictures from your trip in Connievan. :-)


Oooh Lucy your pictures are just gorgeous, absolutely love the bubble ones. And the bunting in your yard, so lovely. I hope Little B will soon be better and that you have a lovely trip. xx


Looking forward to hearing from your trip in Connevian. I do believe it will be the best way to forget the misery you and Little B have gone through.

Hi Lucy, although I know you are so very busy I want to tell you about something that happened to me today.

I love your blog and all the colorful ness and happiness that you inspire in "our lives". I read your posts and since you mentioned the article about your blog on the Icrochet magazine I have been on a mission to find that magazine. I live in Portland, OR and even thought we are a very artful city I have been to almost all knit and crochet stores possible to find the magazine. I have also been to other bookstores and the only thing I had not done was to try to order in the Internet. You see, the reason I love to knit and crochet is because I also love the more personal touch you get from finding a magazine in a store and just loving the feeling of buying it. I m not much of a collector but I do love to have a few things a truly few like they are a treasure to me... I had kind of giving up on finding the magazine ( and honestly had forgoten now)...Much to my surprise I went to a craft store today ( which I had been before in a different location and had not found it ) and there it was... 1 ... Just one issue of the magazine .., Crochet it ... I had been looking for so long that all of a sudden I panicked a little... I wasn't sure if that was the right one ... I bought it anyways ... And as soon as I paid I told the cashier ... I just have to open it ... And there it was ... My very own issue of the magazine with your interview in the magazine ...
I felt so happy It was as if a person that I knew so very close... Or a very close friend of mine was in the magazine... I was so happy... I told the cashier... I read her blog ...it's so nice to find this magazine :)

I'm sorry if I might seem like a crazy person... Of course you don't know me , but I have followed your blog and I was so happy to see you featured on a magazine and being able to get the magazine ( all the way here in the other side of the world, it made me happy).

I'm a mother of 2, a girl(15) and a boy (14) and I work ful time as a social worker . Knitting and crocheting is how i relax...my whole family is in Brazil. Your blog makes me happy... Your colorful crochet projects makes me dream of my country and happy moments...you give me inspiration and I'm so happy that you have been recognized in such a nice way.
Congratulations Lucy !

Now I'm going to make a cup of tea, go upstairs and read the whole magazine... Especially of course the interview about Lucy from Attic24 and watch a little bit of the Olympics . :) this was after all a very happy day and a " great find" :)

ps: Hope the little people feel better soon .
