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

Hi Lucy, it is midwinter here in South Africa and my lemon tree is heavy with fruit, I am so fortunate, not msny gardens here have a lemon tree. I am going to try your Lemon Drizzle Cake to have with our tea on Sunday morning. I love your blog, I love to crochet and work with felt, and get much inspiration from your work. Pat xx

Janet Bell

What fun you have xxxx

Catherine @ Simple Beginnings

Looks like you had a great time, we are just back from camping ourselves and the children just love it.


So glad you are having a lovely summer and ypu seem to be balancing Yarndale and summer hols really well. Have thpught of you this week as am in Cornwall, hooking away on the beach whilst the boys body board! So lovely. Back home to Yorkshire next week!


Ooh, those yarn cakes really make me want to get a winder :) Well done on seeing so many shooting stars, we hoped to see the meteor shower from our garden but were thwarted by clouds - I saw one though! I don't comment here very often but just wanted to let you know I always look forward to reading the posts :)


I enjoy reading your updates and the yarn colours and yarn you have are fantastic. Thank you!

Glorious Summer days .Priceless! I do love your subtle link from crochet to food , ha! never a bad thing :))


Summer is like that...it just goes way too fast :) The ducky and little miss lady bug is just darling :) Thank you for sharing... m.


HI Lucy, I totally agree. I had so many things I wanted to do this summer before returning to school and my other life as a teacher! So far I have got blankets and cushions made, but wanted to get on with other family things too. Thinking of making a trip to Saltaire Mills after seeing your post, as I'm travelling from near Keswick it's quite a way. Worth a day out, or a passing trip when I'm down that way? What do you think? Loving your ducks!! Karen :o)x


It looks like your having a great summer holiday. I'm looking forward to seeing the 'fruits of your labour' at Yarndale. Sarah


Happy Days! Tell me - why do I now yearn for that plate of cheesy chips? Perhaps it could be a reward for having just finished my granny stripe blanket :)
I think I'll make a cheesy tartiflette for supper this evening.
I'm going to do some winding this afternoon & make 'cakes' out of my remaining Stylecraft now that the blanket is complete. If I had never chanced upon your blog, none of these things would be a part of my life - what a good job I did!!
Keep enjoying the hols, Luce - love to you, J and the little peeps. ♥


looks like you had a wonderful time! Cannot wait to see all your hard work manifested at Yarndale! Maggie x


Hello Lucy,

I enjoy reading your post !It can't be too long for me!
What a beautiful ladybird!
You had some lovely days camping with your friends !!!

Sheila Nichols

I enjoyed reading your post today. I always do. What wonderful pictures of your holiday. And your yarn creations. Thank you for sharing.

Cheryl Kershaw

please post the pattern for lovely ladybirds. Our yarn club at school has a project, we are yarnbombing the tree in the school playground....we have hearts, birds and butterflies and a gorgeous caterpillar on of the boys created. Ladybirds would join in nicely. Thank you for your inspiration.


What a lovely colourful summertime post, we've also been watching the meteor showers over the past few nights, just amazing.

It sounds like you're having a wonderful summer. I have the same yarn winder, also from Amazon. :)

Ah Lucy, sounds like life is good! So wonderful to have those special times with old friends. The yarn bombing at Yarndale will be the best! Be sure to post lots of pictures(for those of us across the pond)a bit hard to see that far ;)Love all the crochet goodies! Look forward to seeing what you do with all that bunting too.

Anna-Marie Field

Thanks so much for the photos of your wool winder - bought one and my yarn is no longer a matted mess! Hooray! One question though Lucy, after winding, how do you secure the outside end?

Liz in Missouri, USA

Such a lovely post about good times and family and all the things that are most important. It makes me inexplicably happy. We watched a little of the meteor shower here too. Isn't it great?


Hello Lucy, it looks like you are having a wonderful summer holiday and enjoying all the sweet things of life! Great to see your photos and loving your crochet projects!


Enjoy while it lasts! Here, the school starts next monday. The kids don't want to go just jet. Feel's like the summer has just started!
