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

The Little People if they move away when grown may come to think about the canal like you do the sea. A beautiful stroll thanks for "taking" us along. Mandala ready to mail, I look forward to the excitement of Yarndale again this year, even if it is from a f-a-r.


You know I am really jealous of this little canal you have in your town! The pictures are absolutly stunning! What a wonderful school way for your little ones! Something they will remember for sure!

Also - can I have some of this great weather showing on your pictures? Over here in Germany, it has been a rainy and stormy week with lots of thunderstorms. I long for some sun...

Take care

What beautiful photos! You are very lucky to live in such a gorgeous place!


Hi Lucy, I live in a Yorkshire village with a canal and often go for early morning walks too. We are very very lucky :) Lovely post - I was in your studio a couple of weeks ago at Rachel's rag wreath workshop - really enjoyed it.

A lovely school run. I still walk with my son (he's almost 17) each morning towards school (obviously I can't be seen at school with him!) through fields. It is a great time of the day, and a special time to share. He said that he feels that walking through countryside will always feel like home to him. Mission accomplished. x


Such pretty pictures Lucy, so cheery and bright.
We too have a canal running through Bradford-on-Avon and it is so pretty and atmospheric, whatever the time of year. It brings a very special feel to a place doesn't it ?
Have a good week,

Oh look at all those wonderful greens, don't they fill your heart with joy?

You live in a beautiful part of the country and I just love how much you appreciate it.

Beautiful walk...I love early morning light, and a scent of air.


What a pretty walk to school that must be.

What a beautiful walk, the boats all look fantastic don't they. I love the dragon!! That is so creative isn't it. Glad that you enjoyed yourself. xx


Sometimes I feel I was born in the wrong country. Looking at all your lovely pictures it makes me feel kind of homesick. One day I would love to visit your town and enjoy all the awesome things that you write about. Sigh.... ;-)


Beautiful pictures, I really enjoy taking part in local celebrations and this one is particularly colourful
Surprised to see Lancashire roses though!


You, and your Little People, definitely are lucky to live where you do. What beautiful colours - a joyous celebration of boatiness (boatyness?) Thank you for sharing these piccies with those of us who live in land-locked counties with barely a puddle to admire ;-)


You have one gorgeous neighborhood. ;-)

Do the red and green flowers on the yellow flags symbolize something particular? They look heraldic.


lovely to see your photos which brought back happy memories of our few days in your lovely town last year for Yarndale .... and of course the park we wandered through and sat and ate our picnic and of course ran through!! So looking forward to Yarndale 2014 xx lots of love Joy xx

What a nice place to walk. Living in California we dont have canals. What are the boats for? Do people live on them? I wish we had your weather! Today its 95 degrees and windy.


Hi Lucy, thank you for sharing your beautiful views and happy boats.
I took a photo of that frost and really felt the need to savour every moment of that perfect spring day....it inspired my mandala that you kindly commented on.
How I love this time of year.

I love the enamel jugs. I too have over optimistically painted toe nails. But then again they're pretty to look at anyway. Lovely pics.

It must be lovely to have somewhere so peaceful and pretty to walk about in. I live near a large town now but originally came from the countryside so I know how memories work. Just like you with the sea. By the way the yellow and red flags symbolise the county of Lancashire (a dirty word for those who live in Yorkshire).


There is a canal town here in Indiana (in the United States). My Shug and I were just wondering if it's still in business or not. They turned it into a crafty, bed & breakfast, touristy town. The last time we were there it was kind of run down a bit, with several buildings for sale. I think I'll try to pay a visit in the next few months and see if it's on the mend.

Fabulous boats and yes a wonderful place to walk, I may have to just fly on over one day xo

Jeanette in Illinois, USA

How lovely!!! All the wonderful colors wherever we can find them after this long winters slumber is such a respite for the soul...

I love to be out in the morning taking in the gentle stillness as the world awakens. I adore nature's eagerness and it's display through the birds singing and flowers dewy, it's truly delightful.

Thanks for sharing this with us.

Our drive to school when the girls were little ran along side the levee of the Mississippi river in Baton Rouge, LA. All we could see of the ocean-going ships moored there were the smokestacks. We always looked for the company logos. I remember one Greek ship had a beige smokestack with a blue lyre on it. They still remember those "ship" sightings, even though they have school children of their own.

I see these pictures and relaxes!++

Seeing those canal barges makes me remember my own childhood (on the other side of the Pennines). Lovely photos :-)
