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 Summery week we've had here in the UK, your photos have summed it up perfectly! :) x

claire coffey

what a great week! I've been loving the sunshine and making the most of it in between painting 3 rooms in our house, it's been very hectic. Took a break today to watch youngest play cricket and took my yarn and hooks with me to hook up a few more triangles to add to the stash...they'll be on the way soon! Can't wait for Yarndale! So glad you've had such a lovely time xx


What a perfect week of summer you have had, with all the summer essentails friuts, ice cream picnics and outside dining perfect. xx


Gorgeous pictures again! I can almost smell the elderflowers from here....they epitomise sunny summery days don't they?

Andrea Barskiy

What a wonderful week you had! And your pictures are, as always, sublime! That ice cream looks mightily tempting!! I hope next week is as perfect for you is this last! Hugs


Sounds like a super week
This gorgeous weather is making everything fun and relaxed even in the middle of end of term rush (I'm impressed with the 3 teddy bears picnics!)
I hope this next week is just as lovely

The House of Jones

Hehe, you carried a watermelon.. how very Dirty Dancing of you ;) Nobody puts Lucy in the corner!

PS love the dedication to outdoor hooky :)


Eighty degree summer days sound much better than the 100 degree days we have here in Texas. thank you for your photos, they remind me of the freshness of our springtime! I have many granny square triangles I need to block and mail to Yardale. If I can't be there then my crochet will attend!


Such a different way of life across the pond! We have been out of school since the beginning of June. And it has rained for a solid three weeks here which is an anomaly. Temps here are usually in the uper 90's. oh we have ice cream trucks that scour our neighborhoods in search of children with money to blow! But ice cream boats? How wonderful!


Yes! Hooray for summer hols - we have a week and a half left of singing assemblies, leavers' assemblies etc. The sunshine makes it that much easier but we're all in need of a break. (Our elderflowers are currently steeping in the kitchen too). x


I am melting- dodgy thyroid means my thermostat is non functional.Just BOILING.Loving the ripening berries in the garden though- hard to beat a little breakfast bowl of fresh picked sun warmed fruit...


Hi Lucy I just wanted to comment (my first blog comment) to say I recently found your Facebook page and subsequently your blog and over the past few weeks have read from the beginning! I have to day I adore your blog and have picked up a hook!!! (And have ordered quite a bit of yarn I have the Lucy pack and am putting together some colours to do a ripple blanket also) so just wanted to pop along and say thank you for your inspiring posts and for being you! Hope you ah e a great week. Jane x


I loved your end note to your blog about forgotten paperwork, late payments and hissy fits!!! Made me smile and realise that us mummies always have lots to contend with!

Lynne Gill

What a lovely colourful happy hot week you've had! I'll add my hopes to yours that this weather stays with us for a while. I've been fiddling for my Molly Dance side in the heat at Sheringham and Ely Folk Festivals , suntanned and foot blistered but very happy with the weather!

And now I have a serious case of the wanties, having taken your advice and clicked on the Rice link - darn it!


We're loving the summer days too! Really like your blue polka dot bowl, where is it from? Thanks for sharing your week with us.

Rachael Iddon

Looks like a lovely week though I don't think I could have put the oven on to make that delicious looking baked tomato thing. Having said that, I made jam on Tuesday morning... Hope your elderflower turns out well, you're right, it's nearly all over for another year. I wish we could visit your ice cream boat, my children would kill for that on the school run.


You carried a watermelon?

Dorothy Griffiths

Hi Lucy just loved this post, made me feel very happy - am certainly going to look at the links you gave - all very summery and joyful. Thank you for always cheering me up and helping me feel better. Hope to see you at your show, missed your open day and was so disappointed. You have been my inspiration for a long time Lucy, thank you so much
Lots of love


Clicking on that Rice link may have been a bad decision...


It seems as though for a little while you have switched weather with us in the SE United States. We've had an unusually (for us) dreary week, but thankfully today has been a bit better. It is raining again, though.

Thank you for the lovely post; the part about Little B and the watermelon made me laugh out loud! I love watermelon, too! =)


Such a perfect summery post!! Isn't this weather glorious? I am loving it so much.

We have had quite a few tantrums and hiss fits here too - we are all tired and ready for the holidays. xx

Cath @mybeardedpigeon

Al fresco hooky! I love it!!


Stupid question time: Is Pimms an alcoholic drink or is it like a cordial?
