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

Are you going to keep the location of the village a secret as a resident of North Yorkshire I would love to know! You could send me it in code ie leave some letters out and I will guess so others don't know.


Love your CK pillow cases, good find. I am a big admirer of Laura Ashley too, but the yarn!...I would have to say you hit the motherlode big time!


lovely! I am a bit fan of CK and yes it's expensive but it cheers me so! have you seen tescos shopping bags in CK prints - only £3.50!

the sale sounds wonderful!

Love S x


I think jealous comes in colours other than green. Almost as many as your wool shades, in fact.

French Knots

Oh wow! What a dream day! Can I come too next year?!


how completely fabulous!! And incredibly tempting as well-I so love the idea of your knit and natter sessions, am thinking of trying to start something similar when we open the cafe-your blog inspired the idea, so pat yourself on the back! I love the pictures from the cafe where you do it as well, it look really lovely.x


Ooooh, lucky Lucy!! Sounds like every crafty bloggers' dream sale. I like Cath Kidston in small doses...those pillowcases are perfect. And yes, here's another girl who has a thing about threadcounts. X


I wish I had somewhere like that to go to. You described it so well. I bet you were glad to get in early and have the pick of the bunch. I do love your bedding. I have a thing about bedding and thread counts. I look like a tramp but at least my bed is nice!


Wow, this post was like being transported instantly to my dream world! Sales of yarn (!) and flowery linens (!) in chapels (!!!) with lemonade and strawberries (!!!!!). Delectable in every way. I'll probably have to revisit it again and again just to drool and sigh.

(I think the big roses are fab, and usually I'm not a loud-prints-on-pillowcases person either.)


WOW! Lucky you! I desperatley need yarn, you must tell me which village holds this fab sale ready for the next time.(just whisper so no-one else can hear!)
p.s. your Laura Ashley quilt is lovely and I too get excited at thread counts for bed linen, I treated myself to some 400 count white cotton sheets from M&S just before I had to hand my staff discount card back, sheer bliss! (even my wonderful man noticed how nice they are!!!!)
