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

It looks so wonderful Lucy, it looks like you had a really lovely time. Such lovely colours and lovely peaceful surroundings. Thank you for sharing your time and photos


It all looks beautiful. What a lovely holiday/rest it must have been


Your blog is so interesting and full of colour, it is very cheering. I am not really a people person, I like pottering in my own little world too, but we do need people like Petah to bring us out of it from time to time.

Your trip looks amazing and it is nice to see a photo of you, you look lovely,


Hi Lucy, I havnt commented before But i have spent the last few years reading your blogs. I just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful posts! They really brighten my day when I see you have posted a new craft/adventure/ whatever it is that has inspired you. Seeing your beautiful photographs makes me want to visit that side of the world (I am in Australia). So a big thank you for your wonderful blog!

I have so enjoyed your Provance posts, they were definitely the next best thing to being there. I even had a walk in one of the villages on Google maps street view, Your photos are really lovely. Nice to see some photos of you as well. Happy birthday to you, one you won't forget I'm sure

There is def something about Aussies ... they are just so positive and friendly.

Thank you Lucy - you have a gift for sharing your experiences in a very evocative, wonderful way! From an Aussie who would have loved to experienced it all with you :)


Oh I think Provence Temptations could surely one day tempt me away from my every day for a week or two. It has been fabulous to share your trip and the memories you have brought home with you.

Thank you,


Marion Handsley

Thank you so much Lucy for sharing your holiday with us the colours are beautiful in the photos. I always look forward to reading your blogs . Love Marion xx


Hi Lucy, I couldn't see a way to contact you by email so I will ask here. I remember reading on your blog about the coffee maker that you have and love. I want to get one for my husband for Christmas but I can't find the link and I want to make sure I get the right one. Thanks so much for your help.


Time to start saving for next year then !


It's really pathetic how I check my Blogger dashboard several times a day to see if you've made a recent post. And how excited I am when you do! Thanks so much for sharing your special trip. I've enjoyed it immensely.

Thank YOU, Lucy! Love the way you weave color through every post as you post about life, crochet, family, travels. Your blog is very warm and welcoming! Loved reading it!


I have really enjoyed hearing about your trip. I just have to tell you that I have ordered a set of 6 of those flexi hoops in order to make some of your little bird decorations. I just fell in love with them and have them planned for christmas presents for next year (I'm not fast enough at crocheting to get them done for this year lol). I have my fingers crossed that you will be sharing the pattern :)


As always I enjoy reading your adventures! thank you for taking the time to share them with us!

What a wonderful time away in such a glorious part of the work. Thanks for sharing all the special moments with us. Happy Birthday!!


Lucy it's been an exceptionally great series of posts, thank you.

"One of the things I have most missed since coming home is the sunshine"

When we visited the UK in 2005 on a driving holiday I very much missed the sunlight even though it was May. When we drove into the northern part of Cornwall I felt like I had come home (to Australia), I totally got why it has been a mecca for artists. The Provencal light looks even more like our Australian light.

Since 2005 I have had many moments of really noticing our light in all it's forms. I'd love to show it to you one day -- I think our winter light would blow you away!

I'm so glad you had a wonderful time! Being able to share your memories and photos with others is almost like getting to live the holiday all over again, isn't it? Thank you for telling us all about it. :)

Will you do another "hooky" tour? I would love to be part of that next year!


Loveliest of posts. You have such a beautiful way of putting photos and together. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences and day to day life, it is such a joy to read about.

Angy Braine

There is something so special about seeing through the eyes of person who TRULY appreciates life and it's blessings. You are most certainly one of those people Lucy. Truly you are. Thank you for sharing. Some of us may never make it to all these stunning spots and even if we do, every experience is unique is it not? For some your posts have surely added to their bucket list and for others it may even have been a trip down memory lane. Awesome. Just awesome. :-) ♥♥♥


it's a real pleasure to read your posts!!! I love to read your crochet news or holiday news: in both the occasions I have the occasion to know you a little more! Thank you,
