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 want to curl up in your photos. Lovely lovely lovely. Cute coloured hearts too! x


Sounds like the perfect end-of-half-term weekend. I remember them well! Love your squishy footstool - I have one too, that I 'acquired' from the local recycling centre, with every intention of crocheting a cover. That was about 5 years ago!!! Enjoy your week - bit more 'me' time for you, maybe!!


What fantastic photos Lucy. I know you had hoped to go away but germs took over but it looks to me that your glass stayed half full and you made the most of it. Brilliant. I made a chunky bag after reading your post the urge took hold but I didn't have chunky yarn do I doubled up the yarn instead and used cluster stitch. Really pleased. Now trying the same with brick stitch will let you know how I get on. Pop over and see what you think. http://eclectichomelife.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/crocheted-bag-i-didnt-mean-to-make.html?m=1


Lovely photos. Looks like a truly enjoyable school holiday. I'd love to have that Danish pastry with a cup of tea! :-)
Enjoy your evening,

I enjoyed sharing your weekend with you. I might just need to bake something! We went to our annual crab feed last night (just did a blog post on it) and brought home 2 whole crabs - so for lunch it will be fresh crab salad! What a cute doll your daughter has, and her own hiking and picnic things.. how sweet! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Beautiful pictures! I feel cozy looking at them :)

I s-o hear ya! It's been fun but,I am ready for normal routine. lol Love the bridge and the mossy tree roots, and of course the heart shaped rock (I'm always on the lookout for those) looks like a fun outing. Happy week!

Jeanette in Illinois, USA

Looks like it's been a delightful weekend and school holiday. Lovely photos, warm, cozy and embracing through the chilly grey skies.
Hope your week back to the routine is smooth and filled with simple pleasures!


I love all your photos, especially the little hand drawn picture of "Lucy". So sweet. You had a very busy, family-filled weekend. I love all your crocheting projects, you inspired me to make a granny stripe blanket as well and a ripple one. I am so looking forward to spring, as it has been the coldest, snowiest winter in 32 years here in Indiana. Enjoy your week and happy hooking!

Gillian McM

It's so cold and dark here, Lucy, I'm keeping the photo of your fireplace open on my desktop!!

Heike Herrling

What a wonderful post. I feel like I've just spent the weekend sipping tea and looking at beautiful things with you. Thanks :)


Oh, the little signs of spring that you have! And that mossy tree is fantastic - just creeping along the ground. That bridge looks like fun - a good Billy Goats Gruff bridge!


A wonderful collection of photos, Lucy. Something for all the senses to imagine! I am enjoying the thought of sitting on the comfy red cushion by the roaring fire and doing some hooky. Not something that happens where I live (unless we head to the mountains in Winter). Not long now until we start to see your countryside awakening with


Loving the crocheted plant cover in the second picture. Is there a pattern for that? Thanks for sharing, it made me happy :)
