About Me

  • 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

Happy July to you too. I am a list maker, it's essential when you are a working mum. I'd forget some important school thing and then be booed when I get home having not sent most urgent signed note with children to school.

As a natural blonde it comes... naturally to forget and I often remember stuff way too late. Oh well, my friends know this and make adjustments for me, like texting me twice to remind me where I should be hehehe!


Sorry to hear about the house problems! They are never fun.

I love that top piece that you have. Did you make that? I love the combo of a quilt square picture with embroidery


Hello, I'm new to your blog but am already enjoying it heaps. What a bright and cheerful place to be. Thank heavens I'm not the only one who forgets ***important stuff**. I live in a world with a very organised family and colleagues and it's hard trying to keep up. Might have to go and buy myself a spotty diary too - my Country Living one is beautiful but like a doorstop - so I keep forgetting it!
Shall be back to enjoy your lovely blog again soon.

I am so relieved to hear how forgetful you are - you feel like the worst mother in the world. My husband says I have a 'butterfly mind' - I flit from one thing to the other without finishing anything - Yes that's correct!! but I do laugh a lot! Like you I have to remember that our new house of 5 months has to be a WIP too but we left a house and garden that was all done and its hard isn't it. I alaso dream for England - I am totally sucked in by all the gorgeous pictures in Country Living and can sit and look at them for hours dreaming of old vicarages, cottage gardens..........


You sound just like me! I'm not terribly organised at home, although I am at work (Outlook keeps me on my toes there!) I bought a diary....but I lost it within a month. There's no hope for me :(


And what cheery spots to help you with your new organized adventures!


I too fly by the seat of my pants and regularly miss birthdays, appointments etc. I too have a diary, problem is I forget to look in it. What's a woman to do??
Pop over, I've passed an award onto you!

How weird. Have also just purchased a new academic spotty year diary from WH Smith-mine is red and very lovely. I keep stroking it, opening the cover and smoothing down the clean white pages. I do realise i have to ruin the loveliness by writing in it though. In my VERY BEST handwriting, of course.Something very satisfying about stationary, I think..x


The calenders have lovely pictures. I always look forward to a fresh new month. That's a lovely looking diary you have there. I have several but neglect to write in any except for a small handbag diary for appointments.


Hi Lucy, V. jealous of your lovely weather, it is not great in East Devon. Love the new diary...I have just started to keep my diary up to date again - I have always used the kitchen calender and then when I am out I forget things! I know what you mean about other peoples' houses...my friends' houses always look so tidy and they say the same about mine(!). V. polite friends.....Good luck with the plumbers - keep hiding in that Attic if I were you! Kathyx


Oooh Lucy you sound just like me, we could be twins...lol, talking of forgetfulness, keep an eye out for Mr Postie as your goodies have left the building...lol!! Better late then never, hope you like them......Claire xx
