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

Your children are Lucky to have you as their mum.
It's the most important "job"to raise children.


Love it!


What is that coloring book? My own Little Man must have it :)


What gorgeous images - you create such an innocent, magical childhood for your children. You've described the joy and responsibility perfectly. Such a terrifying and humbling task. They are lucky indeed to have you. That colouring book looks fab - I wonder where you got it from. And please do remember to show us that paper aeroplane method - I have a little boy at home and many children at school who'd love to learn a sure-fire method.

Ooh yes, please do share the airplane folding as ours never work properly and my son loves them.

A lovely post Lucy. A great reminder for us all to slow down and enjoy the little things in life, the memory making. Schools nearly out here, so lots of chaos in my near future. lol I remember plenty of those water balloon fights a fun wet time. All the mandalas that have arrived are gorgeous! (Mines "winging" it's way across the pond now.) I've been out harvesting a little honey from the bees today, wish I could share. Have a great day!

Teresa Kasner

Lucy, I really admire that you are happy with the child rearing - it makes me sad when I hear people say.. right in front of their kids.. that all they want is time away from the kids. So, good for you! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


I've been away from your blog for a bit, but am happy to be commenting again. Looks like your colorful life is very full indeed, and thank you for sharing with us. Now it's time for me to take a walk, and feel my way along the hedges. :) Even the thought of it makes me happy!


It's the stuff like this that will stay with them forever. I know it did me. Nothing flash or expensive just good honest fun with you close by.

They're lucky to have you both as their parents :-)


and what a joy they are to you and us as you share your days with us 😄❤️ Lots of love to you all Joy Xx

Savour the moment, Lucy - I don't mean to sound a prophet of doom or anything, but these days flash by in a wink. Store up the cute sayings and happy memories, keep all the great photos - perhaps make scrapbooks of it all - so you can all look back at them with love and wonder. Enjoy the sweetness of each day. Hugs, Chris xx

Winwick Mum

Oh, those cygnets are beautiful! It's lovely that you're able to capture all these memories; your blog is one heck of a photo album for your children to look at in the future! xx

Susan Smith

Yes, savour the childhood years, as they grow up so fast. My three are all adults with children of their own. Who says you have to be a child to talk to animals, birds and insects? I still do an I'm in my 60's. Take care Lucy and enjoy your precious moments.


This is a lovely post! I love nature and enjoy sharing it with my grandkids. I think sometimes when we are mothers of young children we can get lost in everyday busyness and forget to enjoy nature and all it's wonders! Let the house slide a bit, have fun with your kids! Introduce them to nature...it is such a blessing!

Frances Roberts

One of the pleasures of your blog is not all your lovely crocheted things, which are inspiring, but your pleasure in family life.. My children are older but it is lovely to be reminded of the joys of their childhood. Thanks, Lucy.

shaping childhood times "to give as much as we can, as often as we can"

as OFTEN as you can? what about all those hours you're immersed in doing your own crochet related thing? are you telling us that you never do your own thing when the children are there? how gullible do you think we are?


Your little Man is much neater than I was when it comes to colouring books. I was never very good at keeping inside the lines! :)

Flora: I believe a well balance life includes some time for yourself as well. I don't recall Lucy ever stating she was perfect, who is? Children also need time that is not "smothered" by the adults in their lives, would you not agree? Lucy is a caring giving soul that deserves respect not criticism. Those without sin cast the first stone...


Good mommy!!! I wish we were neighbors. Thanks for a lovely post.


Family life x


You are doing an excellent job of parenting Lucy, congratulations. One day, like me, you will be sitting down all alone and wonder how the heck you were able to do all that! Glad that you did do it but glad that it's done! And so to crochet.....


What a lovely post! The early years with our children are so precious and so many parents regard them as a chore. So sad! I would love it if you would post some pictures of your salads - I'm sure they are colorful and healthy and that would be such an inspiration! I live in Wisconsin and we are finally emerging from what has felt like a terminal winter. I'm sooooo excited for warm weather and crisp cool salads!!
