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

I looooove your cozy pictures and your design. I wish you health and happyness to continue your blog like in the past:)


Lucy, you are such an inspiration!!!! Never mind the crochet - I recently bought a pair of pyjamas (I don't usually wear them) so that yesterday I could get out of bed AND PUT THEM ON because it was the first day, for about 10 days, that I didn't have to do anything for anyone else. No Christmas shopping, ferrying children to rehearsals, going to my daughter's (plural) Christmas dance show, working a full week, going to a 5pm OUTDOOR nativity (brrr) as a parent, putting on two Christmas shows as a teacher, having a class Christmas party (30 overexcited Y4 children.....) having a birthday party for my 8 year old, wrapping gifts, etc. So, the pyjamas went on and the knitting needles AND crochet hook came out. Loveleeeeee.


I love the time between Christmas and New Year - relaxing and leftovers! I need to follow your example and get to work on my ripple blanket - it's been rather neglected recently :(

Sounds just perfect! :) x


My daughters are 27 and 28 now and I have all their Sylvanian Family toys in the loft. I could never bear to get rid of it.


Im glad you had such a wonderful, relaxing Christmas morning. I can't wait to see your finished ripple!


Your house is so neat and clean! Mine still looks like a train wreck despite my best efforts! lol My children are all adults, too! Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year to you and your family!

I adore your blogs! Always look forward to the next one!


Sounds like my day here, quiet, peaceful, relaxing. Your home always looks so warm and cosy, but that last picture is perfectly wonderful!


Your home is SO cozy, and looks so warm and full of harmony. I think it's called love...very important to a family home...lucky you!


Oh your home is so cozy! It sounds as if you had a wonderful Christmas <3 I have some new yarn and I'm going to begin my ripple afghan (very soon!)
Happy 2013 to you!


Our Christmas is always a bit extended as we see different Grandparents and aunties throughout the week between Christmas and new year but there has been plenty of quiet relaxing time going on as well.
I'm loving the look of your ripple, I'm about halfway through my own blanket following your pattern and need to take some more pictures too, I hope to have more time for it, now all the Christmas present crafts are finished (or nearly finished!)

I recently found your blog and it is officially the first blog I am (definitely) addicted to! I work very hard at not getting sucked into the virtual world, (because I really like the real one!), but reading your blog doesn't feel virtual at all. I think that's the charm and charismatic pull. Thank you for representing the real out here!

Also, I've not thought about how wonderful the 27th is, and you're right, so thanks for the illumination. My favorite day is Christmas Eve-Eve, anticipation at its highest!

Thanks again and please keep writing and posting and hooking!


Fantastic pic's lucy!! Always enjoy visiting here. Have our family xmas gathering this weekend so lots of fun to be had.


Your house is so lovely dear! That last picture is so homey and cozy looking, fire and yarny goodness and oh, if one single image exemplified what I wanted my own home to feel like, that would be it. xoxo, Jess


A beautifully cosy post, Lucy! YAY on completing another blanket. :)

Wishing you and your lovely family a Happy New Year! :)


what an awesome blogpost. reading it made me feel as if i was there with you. I so miss the time when my children were little and enjoyed Christmas so much! (My sons are now 25 and 20 yrs old).

There's something peculiarly lovely about these post-Christmas days - relaxed and togethery (if that's a word!) without the pressure that can build up around Christmas Day itself. Enjoy every minute of them, Lucy! E xx


Lucy, you have become my guilty pleasure!! Whenever I should be on the laptop for my husband's work I just find my hand sliding over to the favourite tab and Lo! there is Attic 24!!!!
It makes me a happier person for the rest of the day...thank you.
Wishing you and your family a peaceful, healthy and happy 2013.

I always love this time of the Christmas hols also....there is something lovely about being able to laze around watching films and reading etc.
I've loved having time to enjoy catching up with all my favourite friends in blogland also.

Here's to a Happy 2013 to you and yours Lucy
