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

hello Lucy - I hope you are ok - I am not being one of those bossy commenters asking you to blog :-), just noticed that you hadn't for a couple of days (very like me, very unlike you!) and so just hoping you are ok and not sick or anything.

take care

What beautiful scenery and what a fantastic walk you have to school. I wish mine as picturesque, just a boring road. It snowed briefly here but it didn't settle. Boo and hiss.
Looking forward to the Lakes tour tomorrow. I'll bring the hot chocolate with marshmallows.



Would you please advise who the artist is of your lovely calender? (The old one with the geese, chicken, and drummer boy for December). Many thanks!


Oh how I wish the little ones could witness some real snow, not just the slush and rain we get here in the Somerset, I loved the lake district when I visited many years ago, What beautiful scenery.....

and a beautifully written post



Lovely photos, it was snowing here too this morning but it's all melted now :( You're so lucky to have such a lovely walk to school, I miss having the time to stop and enjoy the sights around me :( x

How beautiful Lucy! While you admire the arrival of winter, we here in Brazil we are already melting in the heat of that summer is approaching. These are two extremes, but they are part of our life, right?
Could a copy of these beautiful landscapes to appear on the screen of my computer? Please! They are so beautiful and contrasts with the atmosphere here. I feel cool looking at them. These and paintings of tissue, are wonderful. Today I was buying lines to start a job in croche and saw several colorful fabrics and reminded me of you. You allow me to make an equal to his? I am inspired by you to do so.
I love your blog!
May God bless you, your family and your beautiful home.

A lovely wintry post, makes me want to go home though! The view from my office is over to the other side of the buildings but the frost we had across the top of the buildings below us hasn't thawed all day so looks lovely and wintry outside. I can't wait to get home tonight, get the candles on in my room and snuggle down with a book. The red berry picture is fantastic....it could be a Christmas card, I've seen some cards like that in town. I love the 8am view from the Attic so very Chr....sorry, very festive!

Such a lovely, frosty, wintery post. It is so cold here but no snow or frost yet. Thank you for the views from the attic. I love your roof top views most of all.


Loved your pictures! Reminded me of how much I miss the British landscape. Have a lovely day!

do you mind if i knit

Sorry I'm having to send you a message by posting a comment Lucy............... your e-mail that comes with your comments is still returning my responses........... : ) ................... I'm so sorry the Pink Primula sold.............. a friend bought it to give to her sister for Christmas, I'm really sorry Lucy. I've been photographing loads of work for a shop refill, and I'm going to try and get them in my shop this week, I hope that makes you feel a bit better? : ) xxx
