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

Another lovely blog Lucy...we missed you while you were away. Similar things happening in our house this week...visiting children with abandoned shoes, forcing walks but having lots of fun, lots of toast being eaten and the wild garlic is up in Lancashire too. You have reminded me that I have sloe vodka left in the garage, so your naughtiness could be spreading! ;D

I just love your blog. So much fun to read and inspirational (crochet and family wise).
I look forward to your new pattern.


Your have such lovely counrty side around you, it must be great to get out and about in it. I'm also loving the Spring colours of your latest creation, can't wait to see it when it's complete, me I'm still making Spring flower's, brooches to give away now the wreath done. Have a great day. ps you're button jugs is so so cute. xxxx


Wait until the teen years when a family walk becomes the equivalent of a forced route March!! it is wirth it though, however much cajoling (yelling, threatening, pocket money sanctions) is required. As for the sloe gin, good for you! I remember the damson gin I made one year and forgot for several years, it was beautiful. Fiona

A lovely blog post. I'm dying for it warm up too, I'm so ready for Spring and sick of this cold weather! It looked promising for a while there this weekend but back to dreary today :(


Just love these images. Thank you


Oh wickedness! Sloe gin! Last week in Ireland my uncle made me and my sister in law a hot toddy every night, such decadence and such enjoyment! Hope the weather has its best ahead for us this summer.... I think we deserve it!

Mmm lovely eggs ! Our Chooks our laying again (3 months later that usual!) such a hard winter! But having freshly layed eggs again is wonder! We are nearly out of coal , feel like Scrooge bellowing "stoke it sir, stoke it!!" When ever hubby goes to put another generous shovel of coal on! Lol our Hyacinths are blooming now, such a marvelous hit of perfume when I open the curtains every morning! Enjoy your hooky time, looking forward to the ta dah! I'm torn between crochet starburst blanky and knitting a hitchhiker shawlette! .... More coffee then decide! Xxx


I love the colours if your home a giant rainbow
I really want the woolly russian dolls. Hope things warm up soon :)


Lovely photos... I am looking forward to the new pattern.Here in this part of the world, we are wishing for a little bit more wet weather ; it is sooooo hot here,already!Best wishes...Gaia.


I just checked my local weather forecast (for Leeds) and its supposed to be 17 degrees this sunday... just after I leave the country for a week, fantastic timing, whats the betting I get back next weekend to below zero again?!

These pics bought back many memories for my husband who is from Yorkshire. We especially loved the banks of garlic. I cant imagine that.


You have such good artistic eye with both your camera, your words & your crafts. Beautiful! You brighten up a cold grey day. Thank you.

Oh, Lucy, I love your home. I love the inside and the outside, the cold and the warm. It just makes me happy. I've thought of toasting myself in the afternoon while the girls are still around too, on occassion, but my husband works evenings and I don't think it would be a good thing if I laid myself up and couldn't get the girls to bed, haha! As always, I love the little glimpses you give of your hooky goodness too.
Hugs and love!


I just love, love reading your blogs ad when there is a new one it makes. Day. Like you I'm ready for some warmer spring weather, really don't like the cold. Can't wait to see what you are making. Love Marion xx


I love very much your pictures! Your house is very beautiful. I like it.


Spring is on the way here 'down South' despite the cold ( again yesterday), buds are swelling , signs of green bursting through- Spring travels at 1/3mph so it will be with you in a few days time...though this year it might put its foot down on the accelerator or it will be overtaken by Summer before it gets there!


Lovely your images and wish I could move in your home always looks so welcoming x


(we too have an old bottle of sloe gin that occasionally needs testing)
I hope you get more warmth soon, Manchester's been vaguely warm recently and I'm trying to go without my thick wool coat all week if I can


Yes, spring is definitely on its way here - finally. We were away last week and came back to find that our pots of crocuses and daffodils had finally flowered, and the tulips are putting up their leaves. Thank goodness!


still smiling (and laughing) about the latest ideas & impressions you shared with us. such a colourful range of heartwarming snippets...

And I'm curious about the new crochet project hidden behind the tulips / gin... :)


PS: Oh my, now I'm craving for poached eggs ... Don't think the cafeteria can fulfill my desire... ;)


It's so nice to read your blog. Wish we could walk from here into the woods, but unfortunately we have to drive first. And mountains we can forget, living in Holland, haha!


Oh I love Sloe Gin, it's on ration at the moment as the bottle is almost empty! I'm almost caught up,with your blog, I'm on 2012 now :-) so glad I found it. Can't wait to see your new project. Rowen@Coastal Colours x


ooh, the photos are lovely! So glad it's warming up for you - I remember how miserable winter can be up North! Longer days now tho, so spring will burst out in no time. Here the autumn is creeping up slowly, slowly... The baby is in leggins now as it's too cold to let her crawl in shorts. Warm PJs too :-o
Off to get some G+T (it's evening here and the Baby is in bed) - naughtiness is spreading :-)


Such a cozy blog post! I love to read about your life, see your photos and the ever changing view from your Attic home. Such a treat. It's funny to think you are going into Spring and here we are in our Autumn that is only going to get colder!
