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

What a lovely trip. We have never stayed in a hostel but it does look ideal for a family. We are lucky as we live by the sea.

Bridget Wilkinson

Fantastic Blog Lucy. I'm lucky enough to live in Whitby. I'd like to share this on my facebook Art page if that's ok

Oh lucy! What a wonderful winter get away.Thanks so much for sharing it with us,as I don't see in my near future of getting to visit such a lovely Country.


Picture postcard perfect, looks like a lovely part of the world, nothing like being by the sea even in winter. Thanks for sharing.

Mrs Tiggywinkle

You sound to have had a fantastic time. Robin Hoods Bay is one of my favourite places too.


It often takes someone else photos to show me how lovely England is and how lucky I am to be from here. Ooh how I wish I was by the sea. It looks like you had a great time, roll on Easter for some warmer weather for your Dorset break!!! Sarah


Robin Hoods bay looks like a wonderful place...I'll put it on my list of places to visit now! I love the coast and am lucky enough to be near the coast in Suffolk, but love the hills further north!


As always, thank you for sharing xxxx I am finding myself waiting for each new part of your world.... as I love your trip to the sea... I so wish I were living across the ocean... what a beautiful place... Once you get back into your lovely crochet~world the time will fly... and Easter will be here!! ~~and you must get the Spring wreath started.. ;) ...your crocheting friend from Ohio xxx


Lovely pictures...I LOVE Whitby! The last time we visited the east coast we stayed in Scarborough, but I like the idea of staying in the youth hostel - maybe next time :)


Lovely bracing blog - when the children are causing me too much stress I retreat to a comfy corner to revel in your panoramic blog - so relaxing - I just feel like I have had a 5 minute holiday - thank you!


Lovely pictures! They have a nice cosy feeling to them :)

Joanne from Colorado

Oh you're making me miss your part of the world again! Thank you for sharing this village with such wonderful pictures, and thank you again for inspiring me to make those hand warmers last year...I love them.


Whitby is lovely- bracing, but lovely.The North East coast is wonderful- the weather can be so hilariously awful that it almost makes a holiday there even better if snowed on/rained on and blown over/frozen. It is just as beautiful in Winter as Summer.


you make an excellent tour guide lucy, and have me wishing dearly to someday visit this part of our beautiful world. so glad you had a wonderful time!


Thanks for sharing your pictures of one of my fave places in the World. How funny that we both spent our 40th Birthday's in Robin Hoods Bay as well. Love it up there so much. We're hoping to be there again at the start of Sept for my 42nd! Can't wait! Fiona x


Thanks Lucy, with your photos and your stories make me live the good emotions, every time I seem to be traveling ... you have a very nice way to tell your daily life, a way that captures my imagination!


How lovely to enjoy the simplicity of family time together. We also have a favorite place to stay in the Scottish Borders. Its cheap and lacks anything remotely modern (apart from a tv and I can live with out that!)but even at 10 and 15 my two still want to return. So that our Easter trip...to the hills ( no sea but I do live on the NE coast!)

hola Lucy que hermoso todo lo que han vivido gracias a Dios. Eres muy buena para escribir parece una novela. Gracias por darnps tanto detalles que nos hacen conocer los lugares sin estar alli. MI NOMBRE ES ADE QUESADA vivo en COSTA RICA MI PUEBLO SE LLAMA PARAISO en CENTRO AMERICA. Estoy feliz de compartir con usted.


This trip looks so lovely.I am new to crochet and have been following your blog. Thank you so much. I live by the sea in Belfast....Belfast,Maine USA. I cannot believe you are 44! No way! You are awesome, a great writer,photographer,and an amazingly creative crafts person. (and a Mom with little ones!) WOW! Bravo! Thanks again for your inspiring work!


This post has brought back many happy memories for me.
My Grandad lives in north yorkshire and I spent many a happy summer in Witby such a lovely town full of history.
I took the family there last year and it's just as I remembered it to be.
Lovely pictures thanks for the reminisce


I can't thank you enough for that beautiful fantasy trip.

Hannah Booden

I love the piccies and the nostalgia I feel looking at them.


(Also) being from North Yorkshire I can't help but say that Whitby's North Yorkshire (good ol' Bridlington is in East Yorkshire), but it's so nice to see that it hadn't changed from when I was last up there 12 years ago. Did you take the kids to see the whale bones?

You just reminded me I definitely need to visit Robin Hood's Bay again, though. I did my Duke of Edinburgh on the Cleveland Way (roughly...), and stayed on a campsite on the hill overlooking the bay, and yet never ventured into the village. Still a regret, but you've just sparked my determination to go back, so thank you!


I admire you for braving the cold there, Luce, it's always freezing when we go and that's in October. No mention of fish 'n' chips?!

Thank you for this post and for taking me away for a little while. It is snowing here in Iowa and I am very tired of it! I would love to be by the sea......
