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

Wow, what a post! I loved reading it all. Makes me wish we could have a caravan. Sounds like the perfect holiday.

I love the knitted blanket, did you make it yourself?


Aw, Lucy! Your blog is one of my most favorite, juicy-delicious blogs, and this is one of my most favorite posts ever. I am so glad you had a nice holiday, you've been sounding as though you needed one. I just got back from a holiday all by myself without the six kids, wow, what an adventure! -- and we just sold our camper. Sad! Anyway, thanks for yet another gorgeous post. So happy for you.

York is such a great place isn't it! Looks like you had a great time, I love camping too, we have a tent, one day I would like a caravan but don't think we will ever be able to afford one! I'm glad the weather was good for you, it's been a challenge this year, especially for us campers! I'm always up really early and love sitting outside before anyone else is up! Bliss! Ada :)


Lucy this looks like a brilliant trip! Don't you just love it the way your children pick up old friendships just like that. We have very good friends we only see once or twice a year with their 3 children. It never ceases to amaze me how ours and theirs always play together so well even though they don't really know each other like the grown ups do!

Your post makes me want a Connievan !!! It would be awesome to enjoy some outdoor fun and some quiet time in the countryside.

Love your blog, by the way. Thanks for the wonderful posts.

You make caravanning sound idyllic and so easy with little people...and make me think that I NEED a caravan (even if it is just to stick cute decals all over it and fill it with colourful bits and bobs)!

Sounds like you had a lovely and funfilled week away, even if J was at work. I hope your batteries are well and truly recharged. Keri

You weren't that far from York Racecourse, where we have our cycle rally in June, lately a quite wet and windy occasion. We cycle out not far from there on social rides.

I absolutely love York, for everything that is quaint and beautiful. I love the bus system, as when we are there, the cars are left on the campsite (I camp with a tent) and it's easy to get into town rather than cycling and locking up bike.

I love your van. I watched a programme about vintage caravans on iPlayer, or ITV player, there some beautiful old caravans and a couple of little 'pods'

Dear Lucy our local Oxfam shop has crochet blankets. The Helter Skelter
made me smile. I remember my elder son going on one at the age of five.
He loved it. Great photos of your stay and outings in York.


Reading your post is like taking a mini-holiday. I love it when you take pictures lying down with a cup of tea in your hand. Thanks for sharing!


oh how lovely! we've just got back from a return visit to York too, although it's only 3 years for us since we moved and we still have family so we go quite frequently. I missed the carousel, although we went on it last time, and we also took advantage of the lovely museum gardens, where there was some squirrel photography and some tree climbing by the children. are you coming up to Craster next week?


I've really enjoyed reading your post and popped over from Down by the Sea. I am now your new follower. Look forward to getting to know you.

I love reading about your trips! I cannot wait til my little man is a bit older and we can enjoy family holidays like this. Connievan looks as beautiful and homely as ever. Abigail x


Thanks for sharing all this loveliness, you really have the right touch for making pics :-)

I love your post. Looks like a great trip!!!!


Lucy, Thank you for this post, I have really enjoyed it and feel like I was along on that trip with you. Beautiful pics.

Especially liked photos of the old town and narrow street. Glad you had a good time.

Hi Lucy, it looks like you had a wonderful, relaxing, fun week with the kids and hubby in the evenings. Thanks for sharing. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


That looks like a fun and wonderful time!! So glad you had a wonderful vacation!

Dear Lucy: My name is Carmen and I live in Mexico City. I have been following your blog for some time and it is one of my dear favorites. I introduced you to my mom and she also follows you happily. We love your designs, colors, everything and thank you for your generous sharing. I am starting a version of your japanese flower scarf. So wish me luck and thank you again.


Oh Lucy, you have such a way with photos and words, what a fabulous post! I have just spent a very happy 15 minutes reading through it and admiring the pictures, it feels like I was practically on the holiday with you - glad you had a good time. Yvonne xx


Sounds like a great trip away :) Loved seeing so many pics that after our trip to York I can identify with :)

Hoping for one more short Bertie trip before it gets too chilly.


What a lovely way to start my morning, thank you! I so enjoyed reading about your trip and seeing your lovely photo's! York looks like a truly lovely place to visit, I love those cobbled streets and the bunting hanging int he streets (I saw a bit of that when I was in Haworth 3 years ago, so delightful!)Thanks for sharing Lucy! We too love our caravan and holidays in it, such happy memories, I really think every family should do it, it brings families so much closer together and creates such happy memories and times for little ones. I cannot wait for our 10 day holiday in December!! You've got me all excited! Have a super day!


Just divine!

I am staying in a caravan for the first tie over my birthday and our first wedding anniversary next week ... i can't wait!

You have given me a little excited push!
