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 may be usual for you, but it certainly isn't dull or boring! You have so much colour in your life, and you are very good at spotting the beautiful in the "ordinary". :)


Hi Lucy, We love you being you too and wouldn't change a thing! xxBrenda


There is nothing ordinary about it! :)


Your usual seems just lovely to us readers of your blog. I love seeing all those snippets from your weekend. Fiona x


Lovely and colourful and full of some great crochet creations. The new ripple blanket is looking especially nice, I like the last photo too. I've been making a granny square blanket for our bed. It's "finished" - except for the border, and of course, the ends, which will take me a few months I think!


usual, but not ordinary! beautiful pictures; enjoy a peek into your world. :)

Wonderful. Extra - ordinary :)

The usual can also be the wondeful things in life!


Ordinary life should always be celebrated xxx


This is such a nice post
How lovely to recognise the everyday things that bring you joy and happiness
I hope to work on my own list like this because it feels important to celebrate "the usual".
It makes me think of people having "the usual" in pubs because actually that is what they like to have, not just because it is what's there

As I am preparing for the week ahead, I took a look in your Attic and it brought a smile to my face. Reminiscing about snack times and walks gone by.. My youngest is now in secondary school but checking in with you, brings back sweet memories! X


Hi Lucy , hope you never stop sharing the usual with us. They are such relaxing, happy posts and always wonderful.

I love these posts, they look devine and cause me to stop and look at my own life, void of comforts and simple pleasures and routine. Makes me want to snuggle up with blankets and drink a foamy coffee!!


I live "across the pond" so I'm always interested in your photos from where you live :) Just keep the usual stuff coming :)


Do you have a tutorial on hoe you made the gripper on your crochet hook thats red with white dots?


I love your world, and your sharing! ♥

"the beauty of still water" - yes! That is something I associate with your country. I've seen so many pictures of rivers with homes right along their banks and water as placid as can be. I'm always struck by it.


Lucy I have to ask,,,,,,where did you get the little owl pillow on your bed?? I am guessing its a pillow??
It is soooooo cute!!!


That's the lovely thing about where we live -- it is part of who we are. Usual maybe, commonplace never.


It's always those little ordinary things we miss the most if we loose them- happy, good things to make up a life! :)

We love you for being you. Shirley


Nice to visiting you!!! It's like going back Home, each time!!!
thank you, xxx Ale


I love "everything that is you"! As many many times as I've seen photos of your bed, I am always enchanted by each new photo. They always make me want to run upstairs and change my linens and whip up a crochet bedspread!


It's the usual stuff that keeps me coming back day after day!! I love the privilege you afford us of a peek into your colourful world!! :-)


And I bet everyone who comes here is looking for the "usual" Lucy stuff. Never change. Keep giving us a day of usuals. Thanks!!
