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

Hello Lucy - I sent you a message earlier, but possible submitted in the wrong location. I absolutely love your sense of color, and fell in love with the crocheted bag you made for someone using primarily blue coastal colors. I am just now getting together all the colors I need to create a similar bag, and wonder if you might be willing to share your pattern for the round medallions you added to the bag.



Wow, that sky looks gorgeous! I was very impressed with the moon last night - almost full, very low in the sky, and looked huge - also very bright. A true sign of harvest time. Little B's nest looks very snuggly! I hope you have a lovely time in France, really envious of you and those who will be there with you.


Well, at last a chance to say 'thank-you' Lucy. Usually when I think about posting a comment there have been so many already that I do not bother. I love to read your blog for its inspiration, insight, crfats, anecdotes, loving care, honesty and thoughtfulness. Many thanks.

My Mum grows tomatoes and for the past few years I have never bought any. However, she has three plants full of tiny tomatoes, all green. We have been ripening them with bananas, and she's fed up because of all the attention that has gone to waste.

I'm battling on with my ripple mini blanket, the colours don't look so well put together as yours, but heck, it's my first attempt.

Yes thanks Lucy for continued cheering and inspiration. I haven't commented for a while , but always read your lovely blog. Have a great time in provance ( wish I could have come) love Sue xx


Hi Lucy, So good to hear from you again. Are you off to France on Friday? I'm soo jealous, the photos looked amazing! Hope you have an fantastic time, you deserve it. I make handmade soaps & bath products and am thinking of designing one in honour of you. I think rainbow colours would be good, hmm what fragrance to choose? I'd be happy to send you a sample, let me know where I can send it to. Looking forward to your next post.

Next year I am going to plant nasturtiums, geraniums (the only one I do plant at present) and sweet peas... it must be so satisfying to have the color and scent. Please remind me what I have to do when!!


Love checking in on your blog - gives me a chance to escape even if it's only on my 15 minutes tea break in work. Would love to have a slightly different life where I had time to make and create but bills must be paid and kids need my input! Those few minutes where I get to check in allow me to dream and I wanted to take the time to say thanks - my day wouldn't be the same without it! From Tipperary, Ireland

I remember when I was little, my Nanna used to grow beautiful strawberries in her garden. What a delight to enjoy 'just picked' berries still warm from the sun. Maybe I will grow some next year....


I'm glad you're doing well. It's nice to have you back again, I make time to check your blog every day. That strawberry did look delicious! Strawberries are my very favorite food. My strawberry patch only produces a few, and very early in the summer, but it's always a joy to eat them. Funny about Little B needing his nap with the early wake-ups; my little girl, newly turned four, is back to napping most days again since she started preschool this fall. She's exhausted lately! It's nice to have that hour of quiet that I thought I had lost over the summer when she was more rested.


So glad you feeling a bit better! Have a lovely time! (Provence?)Cannot wait to see the photos!


Have a great time away xxx


Home grown strawberries are the best, just like how much better home tomatoes are too. Sweet little guy having his nap, and boy do I remember those early starts to the day way back....
Beautiful pictures as always.
take care


Have a fab time next week - I wish I could come! My little fella will be two next summer, so maybe by 2014 I'll be able once more to go away, leaving the sproglets behind. By then I trust you'll be offering long weekends in Dorset or similar ;o)

In the meantime, I'm making a baby ripple for a friend's first baby, with four Rico cottons and two Debbie Bliss Eco-cotton - the latter is plusher than the former, but the colours go really well together. Must set up a Flickr account so I can show you. I will be so sad to see it go to its new home! x


PS - the point being... Thanks for the Neat Ripple pattern! x


I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling a teensy bit better about everything. I hope you have a wonderful time on your trip. I wish I could've joined in the fun.

Brianna Asaro

Strawberries this late in the season!? Wow, I'm impressed! And I'm glad to see you're feeling a little better. Sometimes, especially women, I've noticed, go through these rough times for no real reason. Eventually, we snap out of it. I have faith all will be okay in your world!


4.45 wake up - ouch! That's still night time!I feel for you, it makes for a veeeery long day when they wake early. You must be shattered. Your strawberries are gorgeous, and how great to still be picking poseys into October. xx


Oh to be able to build a den of cushions to snuggle under and nap! He looks so cosy, I don't know how you managed to resist :)

Irene Porter

Your photos are always a treat. You will remember to pack your camera, I, and I'm sure everyone else who reads your blog, are looking forward to photos from France. I do hope you have a lovely time.


Thank you Lucy for all that you share with us. Read you makes us more joyful and excited about life as you are <3 I wonder if you can imagine how nice it's to feel you friend, even if we never met eachother!
A big hug

There's something particularly sweet about the first and only strawberry ready to eat on a strawberry plant. Wishing you many more : -)


I really love your blog and I'm very pleased to hear that you get out of it as much as you put into it. I found your blog, and the Granny Stripe Blanket, via Ravelry, just when my life needed a fair bit of therapeutic activity, and I'll always appreciate it, and you, very much.


What a cozy little nest he has made!

Susan Greenhow

I commented on your last post but I don't think it got through, I am still a bloggy beginner. I also found you via ravelry, read your blog, and fell in love, (not in a bad way you understand lol).
your pics are gorgeous and provence sounds like a dream, tho I wouldn't care if it was the isle of sheppey if it was a crochet/knit fest. (Am plucking up courage to approach knit and natter group at local library tho my town is a bit cliquey).
Little B sounds a bright button which is why he is up so early (my niece was the same, she is 23 and super clever now). School time will come soon enough though I don't want to wish his precious young time away, I think you will feel better as I did when my youngest started school - she is in her last year now! (I had 8 year gap between the boys and my girl - yikes).
Much love
