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

Absolutely lovely. You can keep all the detached houses for me, I love a terrace, there is just something about them that appeals to me....and I live in one too.

Luce, Had to smile when I saw Saltaire ... do you remember that Skopos project? Weren't you a Winner (or did I imagine that?) ... so impressed by your inspiring so many to join in your Mandala project ... sorry, I have yet to learn the crochet thing, but still love dipping into your "colourful world".
LOL your friend, Katie B x x


Sigh! Beautiful pictures! I adore the cat in the last one! Oh how i wish i could own a cat (or rather be owned by one...)!

Thanks for taking us on your tours! It allows me to have a short holiday in my imagination!

Take care


I don't live far from Saltaire, went to school and college there. I love it the boutique shops are great and the bakery is georgous I really enjoy going to the Salts Mill gallery as well. those David Hockney pictures never get old.


What a beautiful spot, and how lovely to have some time to yourself. And lucky you spending some time with Gillian, she's such a wonderful blogger. So glad you had such a good day Lucy. CJ xx

I love Saltaire too. We used to go often for a lunch and mooch around before children. Especially love the shop with all the homewares at the top of the mill. I live near York but there is something so appealing, different and beautiful about West Yorkshire (my husband is sick of me saying that every time we venture west!).


Lucy, it was an absolute pleasure, a truly lovely morning. After a crazy few days it was so nice to sit and chat and just be. Good company, good coffee, just all round fabulous. We must do it again soon - before Yarndale, ideally! x

I love how the British have to have their gardens even if it's just a small patch in the front!


I love Saltaire too, such a charming place. I love to walk along the canal path up to the mill. Karen x

What a treat! So very lovely, thanks for sharing (Gillian too).


Ah, my friend and I stopped at Salts Mill on our way up to Yarndale last year, and in fact, our hotel was only about a mile away from it. Lovely memories! x


Lovely thinking I may visit when in your neck of the woods xx lots of love Joy Xx


Saltaire is definitely one of my most favourite places too, I lived in Bradford for 7 years and often took myself on trips out to Saltaire, it's a gorgeous place to have a walk and a potter around the shops and then eat delicious food


We enjoyed a glorious day at Salt's Mill and Saltire after Yarndale last year. Not wanting to wish the year away but come September this year I hope that we will be enjoying all of these places again. Can't wait :) x


Love that bright, cheery door! I would love it if I were able to take a 20 minute train ride to somewhere so serene...


What a delightful place. I love those old terraced houses too.


Thank you so much for sharing this - it made my day!


Looks and sounds like a lovely morning! And if you had Gillian for company - all the better! :)


And thank you, Lucy, for evoking memories as those terraced houses are where my maternal grandparents lived. So naturally, Saltaire is a special place for me too.


My son lives in Leeds, Lucy, definitely think I will stop off at Saltaire first, next time I visit! xxx

hi friend


Lucy, reading your blog is like reading a fairy tale. You are so blessed to live in that magic land. It is my dream to visit one day.

Such lovely photos!!! I especially like the one with the cat on the steps. Thanks so much for the "stroll" through what looks to be a perfect place. So glad you were able to get away and enjoy it.
