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

~sigh~ So beautiful! All we have here in Virginia, USA is rain...rain...rain.

Hi Lucy,
Happy birthday to Little B; 3 is such a cute age - enjoy him!

I'm in the southern hemisphere in sunny and extremely hot Western Australia, where we've just had a couple of heat waves come through, so we're averaging temperatures of about 36/37 to 42 deg C. I too am crocheting at night on my Attic -inspired Granny Stripe blanket and I'm a sight trying to keep as little of the blanket on me as possible as I crochet!

My son, who's 17, is in the UK on a Drama tour at present and is having a whale of a time in the snow - his first experience of real snow, so keep it coming, for him at least!

Thank you for your inspiring blog, which I adore ~ Lilian, Perth

Sounds much like life around here :) Decorations down, only one giant bag for us, school run back on, "baby" about to turn three... and SNOW.
(I'm knitting in front of the fire though!)


Beautiful picture of the church! Stay cosy!

I like your snowy church photo. I've been in the church myself and seen the green man carving high up on the beam. Although a pagan sign it shows the age of the church and a sign of the changing seasons.
As you said , its so nice to have the snow in January. I hope we get a sunny Summer too, this year. Thank you for your lovely blog and your attic view through the seasons.


An especially spectacular church photo! Lovely views all around! :)

I totally agree. 2013 is off and running. It's crazy! but I feel blessed that I am enjoying the time, at least!


Your blanket is a true joy for the eyes!! Enjoy the snow!

I miss my fireplace!
I did manage to crochet a new scarf yesterday. I'll be tweaking the pattern to my liking now *grin*
What a stunning view you have! We are finally expecting some snow this week. As I have to work the rest of this week, I'm still prayng we don't get too much as I hate to drive in the white stuff. But it is pretty look at!

Beautiful photos and such a lovely walk to school. Thank you for sharing them.

Hi Lucy: I pinned your picture of the roses on my Pinterest page. I couldn't resist. I'm a quilter, not even a little bit of a yarn addict; but I could be, just from watching you. Most of your pictures make my heart leap for joy of the colors (colours). It's such a treat to visit. Come by and visit my blog if you have a minute. I'll make you a cup of chamomile tea and we can munch a scone together. Thank you. Kathie in Washington State, USA.


Hi Lucy, I'm new to your blog by about a week and I've been absolutely glued to it! There is so much to catch up on and I'm enjoying every spare moment I have to take a boo. I'm at the "put the squares together stage" of my project. I love color as well and so am so pleased to have found you and your friends to inspire me to do great colorful things!!!


New follower...love the blog and all the craftiness here! Your home is so colorful...I love it!!!


Your fireside hookery looks amazing! So bright and colourful, and uber-warm - fireside variety, blanket variety, and happy activity varieties! Very much so looking forward to the finished product!! xoxo, Jess


Such beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing. Your blanket is looking awesome!

What bliss to have snow! I love your photos. PLease can you send me some of the real stuff to help me cool down lol. It was 31 C here in New Zealand a few days ago. But I can't really complain, I had fun romping in a field with a herd of alpacas this week which I will be posting about soon. Enjoy your snuggling by the fire xxx Rose.


you are absolutely right, it feels good when you have changing seasons, like we have in my native country.
love the blanket! do you make join as you go? my plan for 2013 is to make a blanket too!
gorgeous pictures of the snow hills :)


Wonderful snow pictures! The church is beautiful. I live on the coast in South Carolina, USA and our temps have been in the 70's. I know we don't usually get snow, but a little winter weather would be a welcome treat. It seems very wrong to have to turn on the air conditioner in January. Have a great day!--Janet

Carolyn Jackson

Lovely photos, snow looks so lovely, we have had a week of 30+ degrees here in NZ, still managing to crochet though, enjoying making Flower patch Cushion, much cooler than the quilting I used to do. Thanks Lucy I love you blog and look every day. Carolyn.


nice picture with church

Sonia Petitpoint

Lovely pictures !

Wendy Willis

Beautiful pics as always. Disappointingly no snow here in Cornwall just dull and drizzle:( please send me some down in the post. X


Love the cosy feeling that your colourful blog delivers. Snuggling under a cosy wool blanket by a warm fire looks sooooooo inviting.
