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

Totally agree Lucy. We speed by in our busy lives we forget to stop and admire the view. I admire your work so much and am busy creating a summer crochet wreath (although it could be winter in Llandudno at the moment) my inspiration was your Easter tah dah wreath.

I love that quote - enjoying the little things is something I'm trying to do more of by joining in with the 52 weeks of happy posts. Love the design on those illustrations!

Your enjoyment of the little things always comes across in your posts, it's one of the things I enjoy most about your writing :)

You're so right, Lucy - it's the little things that make life worth living for, but so many people can only see that they haven't got enough big things, instead of noticing how rich they are in other ways. Simple pleasures are more easily replicated - little moments of happiness in our days which can make them so much richer and more enjoyable, and the best part is that most of them are free, we just have to wake up and take notice xx


This quote came and slapped me and my family in the face when my brother passed away unexpectedly last year. It is so, so true and having an autistic son helps me live by this quote even more. Love your 'little things' pics and adore your work x


Been away for a while just catching up. Beautiful posts as ever. I agree the simple things in life are the best, well I think so x


so, so true.

I've always loved that quote! I really enjoy your photos, especially the ones of your local surroundings. I'm American but I've been to England twice, and I LOVE it. Such a beautiful country!


The most precious of moments.

Love your framed stained glass piece in your kitchen window! And that granny square is excellent for a first attempt! :)


Lovely post and so very true.


Great quote!
Wonderful pictures of your days!

It really is all about those little moments, and if we treasure them, we are all the more happy for them! :) x


It's so nice to stop and appreciate the little things of life, I started doing one of those 'year of happy' on my blog a view week back and it been so lovely to do . xx


Lucy I love you, I love your tutorials, I love the way you post things, I just love everything you do. This must be very weird for you, because you are just a simple person doing simple things.
But You, Lucy, you are a very special person though. Please keep this in your mind. YOU ARE VERY SPECIAL. Thank you for sharing your life with us, with The World. Much love from me, from The Netherlands!


Yes, the little things in life we sometimes take for granted. I am thankful! The grass is not always greener on the other side! Enjoying all the new sprung green today! Weeds and all! xxoo kitty


Small pleasures- I'd be lost without the tiny things.


Yes,and it's the little things..the special moments,which we will cherish and remember for ever.

Hi Lucy, just wanted to let you know that I honestly feel you have improved the quality of my life. The way you live your life makes me want to do the same with my little family. I try to make the most of the simple things - today we had a hot coffee from a flask in the park with a picnic dinner, all inspired by you and all of which made me happy. Bank holiday we took our little ones (2.5yr old and 14wk wrapped to me) on their first bus trip - just thinking about it now makes my heart swell with happiness and its because of you that I try to do these things. I often think "what would Lucy do?!". I second everyone's thoughts here that you are simply wonderful. Thank you so much. Oh my word, I feel myself welling up as I type, I think it's because I love my little family so much and because of you I am trying to create wee simple happy moments for them that I might not otherwise have been brave enough to do. So I just wanted to thank you

A lovely, happy and cheerful post. Thanks for sharing.
I'm waiting for a new camera - and I'm going to try and
keep a Project Life scrapbook - printing a photo a day
for the year. To remember and hi-light the good parts
of each day. x


A beautiful post, that has reminded me to remember to enjoy those little moments that too often pass me because I have become too wrapped up thinking about something that isn't that important anyway. Thanks for sharing :)


The little things can be the best things. I love the crochet around your mint plant. Just so cute.


Inspirational, as always:) Thank you so much for sharing with us.
