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

Lucy, you live in a beautiful part of the world! I just love your pictures! If I had this beautiful vista were I lived, I would spend every free moment I had outside, too! Thank you for sharing your beautiful part of England!


What a wonderful day! I cracked up at your yarn bombing, brilliant!! Thanks for the lovely pictures :-)

I love, love your picnic photos. That area of England is so beautiful and it must be great to have that sweet river so close. Love the yarn bombing!

Great pics! What a great idea having a little sun tent to shelter in - very cosy :-) xx


Looks like you had a wonderful day, in a stunning location, the yarn bombing made me smile so much, I hope when you next return there is a whole row of bunting, like the way people leave piles of stones when hiking :0) I made my first yarndale granny bunting pennant this weekend too xx


we were up dale yesterday too, in Arncliffe. Beautiful!

Hi Lucy.. what a fun day you had, a perfect place for the kids to play and get comfortable with nature. I loved your yarn bomb and do hope that it is there next time you go. We had our 13 and 8 year old grandsons overnight.. but our weather was not as nice as yours, so we watched BABE the pig movie today. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

What a lovely peaceful spot! I am pleased to see you enjoying life and taking time out for your family even though you probably have a thousand things to do for Yarndale. A very balanced life Lucy.
The yarn bombing ('Lucy in the landscape') is inspired and I wonder if there will be more when you return...
(PS...up to 9 bunting grannies. Very addictive)


Awwww, this is wonderful Lucy. You have inspired me to make a picnic blanket and now I know what to eat on it's first outing :0)
I love this sort of "day camping" a bit of time in a tent when the sun shines then home to a comfy bed .

Gorgeous scenery, looks like you had a wonderful family outing, how I miss those days, my 'peeps' are all grown up now.
Loved your bunting yarn bombing, you may have started a new trend - reminds me of the Secret Saltburn Knitters further up north.
I've been thinking and planning my bunting contribution, eager to get started but must finish my current project first!


Gorgeous and you had those clean sheep accompanying you.

How beautiful!


What a beautiful day with your family. Your pictures are lovely. I especially liked your yarn bomb. Is this going to become a new tradition when you go on your outings? Thank you for sharing.


May I just say how much I live that you are yarn bombing the countryside?! Lucy you rock in the most coloristic way! Yay you for following your instincts!
Looks like a lovely day. I love the impromptu decision but you were very well prepared. I'm taking notes! ;). I had a little impromptu beach visit the other day with my grand but we were I'll prepared being that she is two she was not bothered in the least ;). I'll post some photos this week on my blog. Very spoilt to live by the sea:)
Thank you for sharing your day!


Beautiful pictures Lucy and a wonderful family time together.


This spot is amazing.Babbling brooks and children is always such a wonderful combination isn't it. I love that we as parents can just sit and watch them if we like and they will happily busy themselves safely for hours. My boys adore dam-building. Last Christmas at the beach two of them were still at it and they are 14 and 17!!!Wonderful....


hola lucy:
me encantan todos los lugares y cosas que muestras, yo vivo en Santa Cruz Bolivia, me gusta mucho tu blog, tienes una vida muy linda y tranquila, con la que sone siempre, me gusta tu pais y el lugar donde vives y las cosas hermosas que haces llenas de color y amor
Parece gracioso lo que te voy a decir pero siempre he pensado que en alguna vida anterior vivi en esos lugares hermosos q muestras, me despido hasta otro momento y gracias por compartir las hermosas cosas q motras

Hi. Do you have the pattern for the squares in your beautiful rug? (the one in the tent and on the rocks). Thanks, Cherie


All of your posts really make me want to up and move to the English countryside!! And I love your yarn bombing.


Yarn bombing in the countryside...you rascal! You know I might have to succumb to that urge myself one of these days. Thx for sharing your day. Hugs, MO


Your post today brings back such happy memories for me of holidaying in a cottage at Buckden and visiting Hubberholme with my children in the 80s. I really will have to go there again!

It looks like an idyllic day, we have a picnic on Exmoor (near where I live) planned for one of our summer outings and I wouldn't have thought to take the camping stove, which is wierd as I always take it to the beach. So thank you for sharing that. Well done on the yarn bombing :)
