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

I hope little B is right & it does snow! It always happens when I plan to travel, but right now I have nowhere else to be so... as the song says, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow :-)

Loving the colours of the pom poms, very autumnal :-)


Thank you Lucy! Your posts always put a smile on my face and bring a lovely sense of calm, just what I need after a "scratchy" start to the day with the MOH (man of the house). Happy Chinese New Year (year of the horse) to you & your family - I can't wait to see what you have "bubbling" away!


What a lovely day :)


Snow would be such a great upgrade from all this rain, looking forward to seeing the poncho, you'll be needing it with all the cold weather. Loving all the Spring flowers, waiting for my bulbs to flower here.

I know just how little B feels. I bought myself a sled this year and can't wait to try it out! Who says 40-somethings are too old for snow play :)


You can never have too many pom poms! They look fantastic x


Lovely and exciting things here, I'm intrigued to know about what you're writing, I know you have the column but is there to be a book??

I'm eagerly awaiting snow and making potential sledging plans too, I really love a bright, snowy day

If it does snow, I hope it does it for Little B and doesn't do it here - scares me silly having to drive in it! Its been a grey and drizzly day here, but I've been singing with babies this morning, and enjoying helping people find just the right book to take home this afternoon, so it has been a good day.....made all the better by a visit to the Attic for the colours and the positivity. Thank you, Lucy xxx

It's a joy to see your work, and to see someone so contented with their lot. Well done indeed.

Winwick Mum

We're waiting for the snow too, and today was a lovely day because the dog was beautifully behaved on our walk this morning instead of hurtling into the distance with me chasing along behind screeching like a fishwife - which happens more often than I'd like! Ah, happy sigh :-) xx


Had snow today in Nottingham!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We had a few flakes this morning and my little class of eight year olds were so excited - so was I until it turned to rain just in time for playtime duty! Looks like that poncho is going to be ready just in time x Jane


The view out my window is similar to yours today, as far as the weather is concerned, Lucy. We have been having rain down here in the valley although Mt. Hood is covered in snow, just right for Little B's blue sledding
adventure :) Thanks for sharing your view of your colorful pom-poms, pretty poncho, and beautiful tulips which have cheered me to see. Now I am off to brew a cup of tea and then do some stitching :) xx


We are finally getting some snow.( Denmark )
I find it very cosy, but then I spend most of my time inside, and rarely go outside...
Oh I need a pompom maker, must buy one next time I am at my yarn pusher! :)


We have the same weather here in Indiana today. It's been below freezing for a month now. We are awaiting more snow too. You and feel the same way about flowers. They, make life much happier. Dying to know what all the pom poms are for!


Snow would be lovely! Your blog is always so heart-warming, I was just having a moody five minutes and reading your happy and optimistic post has cheered me right up :D


SSSSSSooooooooooooo gad you are a happy lady :-) lots of love Joy xx


A book, a book, please say it's a book Lucy...and if not, why not!
Such a wonderful post as always....looking forward to seeing your finished poncho.

Oh yes, a blue sled sounds just right! lol Our snow is melting away, not that we see much snow here in the South, but still bitter cold (-4F overnight). I'm ready for spring :) Can't wait to hear about the 'writing' bit and the Ta-Dah for the poncho. I know it'll be grand. My day was preparing to can some beans, watching Sherlock and just staying warm with the girls out of school, due to weather. Blessings. xxxxx

I'm counting my blessings today as I have my husband home from the hospital. He had a total knee replacement on the leg he was shot in while flying a helicopter in Vietnam 46 years ago. I can't wait to see you model your poncho for us! I think it's awesome! Back when I was a hippie chick I made one of handspun (by me) alpaca and knitted a poncho in fair isle. But I can't find it! LOL! You should pop over to my blog and see all the buds around our farmyard that I photographed today!
((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Ido love yourponcho. Hope you will share pattern when you have time. I have made some of your things and you are so good at explaining them.


I have just discovered your blog and all your wonderful patterns. Thank you for sharing your patterns, thoughts and reflections so freely. I wish I was able to come to some of your workshops, but Kent is rather a long way south from where you are. I will enjoy keeping track of your progress through 2014 x

We had snow today in Nottinghamshire. I wanted to buy our baby granddaughter a sledge ... But grandad didn't agree as she is only 15 days old!xxx


All sounds wonderful and exciting in your world Lucy. So happy for you! You are a treasure and deserve the BEST! xoRobin


I made my first pom-pom over the weekend for a hat for my little babe. Never thought I was the sort of girl who would make a pom-pom, but I guess being a mom changes you!
