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

Glorious happy moments, every single one :) Excited to see how your lamp revamp turns out - what a good idea!

It's lovely to see you enjoying the holidays. Thought I'd leave a message because I have only just worked out how to do it. Managed to leave a message for Tracy yesterday. So many of these tecie things are sooooo easy. Once you have the know how it's a bit embarrasing to admit you couldn't do it before!!! It was wonderful to meet you on your open day. My daughter and I gave you the rainbow cloud. We thought a rainbow fitting because of your love for colours and your dreams coming true with the studio. Sorry I was a bit tongue tied when we met...something a bit serial about knowing you on line and then meeting you in person! It was lovely to meet you and we had a lovely time that day as a family visiting the studio having a ride on the canal boat. You live in a lovely place.


Love the avocodo tomato food, its as colourful as your work, how about when time permits...a crochet step cushion, or buy a piece of foam and cover it with fabric? I reckon it's a great vantage point and one you need to be comfy on! Thanks for your inspiration as always, you taught me how to crochet 'online' and I will never forget it xx

All the way in California desert , I will copy your avocado treat! We too have puffy white clouds against a brilliant blue sky! Thank you for your sunny blog and wonderful projects

Jealous I was back to the day job today and too tired for hooky fun tonight.. My Little Man had his first day at school so it was a very exciting day really... Just wish his mum got as excited about going back to school...


Your lovely pictures always cheer me up. Thank you!


I might invite myself for lunch soon if that's on the menu ... deeeelish x

Love your posts. Your life has the same rhythms as mine and sometimes you don't see the good stuff in your own life but when I read your posts it brings out the best in me and I think 'oh yes we did that too today, isn't that lovely' rather than thinking about all the hullaballoo in between. Thanks Jo x

I am squeezing in a bit of making in the holidays too see here http:/joeveryday19.blogspot.co.uk


what a gloriously lovely day for you and your little family x Joy x

Frances Kwinecki

You have a happiness blog!!! You definitely live in a beautiful area, you have so much appreciation for the wonderful little things we all take for granted. Enjoy your week!

Janette Box

Dear Lucy..you blog always lifts my spirits. Love hooky the lampshade, and the avocado,tomato dish will be served for lunch in this house too.


Enjoy your happy bits, sweet Lucy!! You deserve it all.


I don't usually post links to my blog on other's comments, rarely actually, but this is what I'm eating for lunch lots atm. I think you'll love it!



I'm thinking that J might have a happy bit of his own if you purchase one of those ceiling hooks to screw into the ceiling and hang that plant from there. It will get plenty of light being closer to the window too.

We love flutter-bys too. :-)


Your new plant: a pothos. One of only three house plants that will take toxins naturally out of the air. I had one, and have started many, many more out of the one plant (cut off a few branches and let them sit in water until they produce roots ~ takes a couple of months). The Mother Plant has branches reaching from the top of the fridge, across the doorway, over the window and down the side. It's a happy plant. You'll love it. I adore your blog...so happy. Your blog gave me the courage to try to crochet. I love it now!!! Happy Trails to you.......

Lovely bright happy photos as always. So glad to hear when folk enjoy eating avocados...they are so good for you ( says the grower who eats them every day.) Do your kiddies like them too?

Barbara Seiver

Our (now grown) daughter was invited to bring a plant to Montessori pre-school for the year. She brought a Pothos, like your new plant, and named it "Gertrude". Ever since, Pothos plants have been referred to as "Gertrude" by our family. :-)

Lovely bits and pieces. Mine was more on the liquid sunshine variety, and spending time in the kitchen cake decorating, then a bit of crocheting,working on a ice cream doily. Have a great week!


So lucky to have sunshine, in Australia-Melbourne, it is winter and very cold.
I do like the change in the season and I am longing for spring.
Love the lamp.
I feel like your lunch today.
Wishing you sunshine and happiness.


The moments of the day...and the memories made ;) Thank you so for sharing as always. xo

Hi, I really admire you and your work.
Seems like you are always surrounded by happiness :)
Please keep it that way :))


Reading your blog always makes me happy. Such a beautiful view from your attic window.

Erika Mulvenna

I don't crochet or knit, but follow you because of the bright, beautiful, colorful photos you post of your everyday life - just like today's post! Thanks so much for sharing, it's a little bright bit of sunshine in my feed reader! :-)
