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

Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better. I love that shade of blue, so calming and pretty. It is funny how life seems to repeat itself, I think it happens to everyone and you don't notice until you blog about it or read back through an old diary. Love reading your blog as always, Sarah x

So pleased you are feeling better Lucy.
Love the painted shelf xx


So pleased that you're feeling better and I hope your finger gets back to normal soon. The flowers are beautiful, who cares if it's a repeat, some things are so worth it!

I find when I look back through my blog that I often write pretty much the same things at the same time of year. I rather love the ebb and flow of life, the small things like posies of flowers, noticing the first strawberries on the plants, watching the blossom appear and disappear each year. It might not be a huge, dramatic, life changing moment that we're blogging about, but these are thing things our children will enjoy reading about when they are grown up. I wish my grandmother had kept a daily diary of the little things - I would so much love to read it.


Aw sweetie, ups and downs get me too. I have to say you tackle yours with far more style than I do! I think it's a 'good thing' to be able to admit to ups and downs, you're right it's life's rhythm but we do such a good job covering up our downs that when we experience them we feel that there's something wrong with us...I love your refreshing honesty, you don't hide behind a pasted on happy face, you are real. Thank you for that. It's not just the crochet that keeps me coming back it's you and your open and frank reflections. xxx


So glad to hear you're feeling better! Love the colour too!


Glad your starting to get back to your normal cheery self again. That Blue paint is so stunning such a dreamy blue. I hope you fingers better soon. It been a busy weekend here with a childrens birthday party, so I'll be needing some down time tomorrow.

I'm glad you're feeling better, Lucy. I have similar ups and downs, and I find they often happen to me in the summer too, for some reason. I love the color you chose for your shelf, I used a similar shade to paint a doll cradle my husband built for our daughter. It's such a fresh, clean color for decorating.

Beautiful colour, nothing wrong in repetition! As long as you're not bored with the repetition! I've just been discussing yarn on my blog and how expensive it is (made the mistake of falling in love, yes really, with some rowan cotton!) people have told me Stylecraft is good and that you've used it a lot, and it's a lot cheaper! So off to find some otherwise I can crochet no more!!! Yikes! Glad you finger is improving :) x


Thankful you have been gentle with yourself, Lucy. Be well. Sending a hug across the ocean.

Life is full of circles and rhythms I think. So glad you are feeling a little more "you". The flowers are beautiful, and how lovely that they are from your own garden. I hope you have a wonderful week Lucy.

I always struggle where to photograph my things without general house stuff in the background. Great idea - look forward to seeing something lovely hanging on them when you are back on form. Chin up! Jo x


Sara Jenkins

Glad you're on the mend and have been able to do a little crochet.
I look forward to seeing your creations photographed from your lovely new shelf. X


Glad you are feeling better and on the up Lucy .... lovely post :-) xx Joy xx

Geraldine Giles

So glad you are feeling better Lucy. I am new to crochet and i am so glad i found your blog, you inspire me to try this lovely craft. Your crochet projects are all so colourful and bright, just beautiful :) I love what you have done with the Connievan too she looks so homely. We have a caravan too and love our holidays in her. Get well soon, i look forward to your next crocheted creation x

Sara Jenkins

PS - I thought you said you're garden was bare? Your posy is lovely - there must be quite a bit of colour in your garden!! :)
A baby bunny has taken up residence in my garden. He looks so cute - but I wish he'd stick to eating the grass rather than nibbling my plants and digging up bulbs! Can't be that cross - yet - he really is such fun to see hopping around.


Fantastic news Lucy, I am so pleased to know that you are feeling revived and much better now. I look forward to seeing you at your studio open day. Liz x


I'm pleased you are feeling better, but take it gently! Lovely shelf!


Glad to hear you're feeling better.
Absolutely, totally and utterly love that gorgeous blue you've used for your shelf.

Em x


Very glad to hear you are starting to feel better. I think your shelf looks beautiful, and I love the bouquet of flowers - fantastic colours!


It's good sometimes to just fall asleep when you feel like. It helps me to recover too. Glad that you are feeling better now! I like the little posy and the pretty blue colour. Thank you for sharing. Take care, Sonja
