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

You are having a good May. So glad to see that. You are an inspiration Lucy. Pop over to see what we got up to recently... http://eclectichomelife.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/paris-in-spring.html?m=1


What a wonderful life xx lots of love to you all Joy X


Oh Lucy, what lovely images. I can't believe how big your Little People are growing. They certainly seem to be going into wonderful Medium-Sized People. Thank you for sharing your precious moments of loveliness. You always inspire me to enjoy my happy little moments. Because really, they are the big moments.


Even your raindrops are lovely! It's much too warm and humid here! Your posts are always a much-needed short of color and happiness! ♡


Hi Lucy,
I love the colours of your blanket.
And I am like you as I love to see my kids growing and doing wonderful things like painting.
Your post is a pleasure today.
Miss. xx


Some lovely colourful happies

A lovely post, a pleasure to read.


Your mug is perfect! I do think of you every time I see a rainbow-y striped anything, or a sweet little caravan. I'm glad you got to have a mother-daughter day, they are such special times. I actually got out for the day with just my hubby on Monday, on our way we realized it had been far too long since doing so! Your littlest's painting is wonderful, I love seeing children inheriting, and being encouraged in,their parent's creativity! Have a lovely (and colorful) week!


How funny, was just wondering this morning if the canal boat festival was about now! Love those pics each year. I grew up with a cherry tree outside my bedroom window, lovely spring memories but all too quick with the blossom. Really daft question - how different are caramel buns to fairy cakes? Is it just the topping?


Today you've enlightened us on how you've solved the problem you had on 1st May when you were unable to find the time to do the housework.
I've read your link to the "schedule" and your words state that your first priority is for the studio and indeed today you say you spend time there on three days a week.
So you haven't solved the problem? You haven't changed a thing? Your first priority is yourself.

I'm in Maine, USA. I'm SO jealous of all the green you have, trees, grass, flowers. We had SO much snow this winter, the buds are just coming out on the trees. We drive down the highway and there's a tinge of green, about to explode!
Love your blog Lucy. Your mandalas are lovely, your ripply afghan, all your work.
You bright bright joy to my day!


Thank you for your beautiful blog post as always! So happy and colorful, just lovely! Maybe a book in the future for you?


Lucy I love to visit your blog and see all the fab stuff you make - I know you love to come up with your own patterns and ideas but thought you might like to take a look here

I'm sure your daughter is not too old to love the crochet hippo or one of the other designs - you can probably come up with something similar yourself . I don't crochet but I love all these patterns.

E.v.e.r.y.t.h.I.n.g you post is a delight and most-definitely pleasing!!!

Thanks so much for sharing these lovely glimpses of your beginning to May. I'd say it's off to a spectacular start, indeed!

Please wish Little Lady a belated happy birthday. She's a doll, i'm sure! Glad you both had such a sweet day together.

Can you please tell me what yarn you used for
your coastal ripple? I live in Southern California
and it was 105 in our back yard last week and it is already very dry here and not green.


Gorgeous cherry blossom carpet- do they have a fragrance to match that beauty? That and lilac- two plants I have never had the chance to experience. Maybe one day.


p.s. You really do get some bizarre comments here...


What lovely photos! And I am jealous of all your fiber work. I haven't had a chance to touch my knitting/crochet stuff in years. And I've got bags full of beautiful yarn that either need to get used or get out!


Early morning light is the best! I have been enjoying it here - and also captured some pretty rain drops. The canal festival sounds like a lot of fun - looking forward to seeing pictures!


I so envy your wonderful daily walks, so safe it seems, even to walk alone, what heaven.

Catherine Pritchard

Even the wet photos are lovely. Do you carry your camera everywhere or do you sometimes use an iPhone or similar?
May is so beautiful.


Hi Lucy - my youngest is 10 and I can't always get my head round how "grown up" he is! I'm sure I wasn't that mature when I was 10. Sad and good all at the same time .... Looking at your boy's beautiful artwork here's an idea. Take a pic, load on your laptop/phone and use as the wallpaper. If you have loads then you can have a different one every day! That way you can keep them forever and load them all up for display at his 21st birthday party just to embarress him!!! Just a thought. x


Oh Lucy, how I love your blog :) I would dearly love to visit England but through your blog, I'm content to see the beautiful scenery - for now ;). Loving your daily walks along the waterways too - lucky you. And your crochet - I'm a knitter but would love to be able to crochet too. Take care and keep up the wonderful blog.

I LOVE reading your blog. You have become my friend :0)


Lovely post Lucy. I adore the smell of Lilac, isn't it funny how just a smell can take you right back to a certain time or place or bring back memories ?
Your ripple blanket is so pretty, I haven't tried this pattern yet ... just might have to give it a try.
Scary how quickly the little ones get big .... I nearly have three over 20 now and it seems like yesterday they were all just running around at home.
Have a lovely rest of week,
