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

I recently read that the original pimms would have been served with borage not mint - am I being completely duped? has anyone tried it?! t.x

Your blog always inspires me with its colorful and striped beauty!! Every post leaves me smiling!!
I was looking for a relatively recent post about your instructions on blocking!! I looked all over for your post but I can't find it anywhere!! Could you please point me in the right direction??
Looking forward, as always, to your next beautiful post!! I am always so inspired after reading:)

I just wanted to post and say I absolutely ADORE your blog (and Flickr, where I linked from after a rec' by a friend). You just lifted my whole day, thank you!!

I'm adding you to my fave blogs list on my blog in the hope my pals read it too :-)



and luckily enough pimms in the house to last into Sunday afternoon too.






i just love your site, i've been following it for about a week now & i have to say you really brighten my day! I've linked you on my blog (which no one really reads) but I just wanted you to know that I love, love, love your crochet projects!! They are so lovely & bright!! I just want to cuddle up on your couch! It's so cozy looking! :D


Such a nice Saturday. I read a book today, in bed, with a cold - again. What is with that? I figure not enough sunshine. I hope summer hurries up. ~Kelly

My mum used to drink Pimms. And here's my deep dark secret... I've NEVER tried it! Not even a sneaky sip from Mum! Perhaps today is the day?! Sounds good, actually, I've had a bit of a yicky stressfull week - might be just the trick!

Hope you are well and having fun times with your little family! xx


That's a sign that summer is coming. Sip and enjoy!

The Antidote

Let summer begin!


can I come and join your;-).....?


I am sooo jealous! That is my favorite drink and you've made it look even more yummy. I have been at work all day, though did manage a barbeque though sadly without the pimms. Will make up for it tomorrow :)
Have a great weekend.

That looks good! Cheers to you, I might join you. Have a lovely long weekend. Bertie x


my mouth is watering! Sadly we're all out of Pimms - guess I'll have to settle for a G&T instead.... :)


Delicious Lucy, lovely idea on a hot day. Think we have some Pimms lurking at the back of a cupboard. Have a lovely weekend. Karenx

That looks so refreshing, must admit I've never tried it.
Hope you had a great day, and enjoy the rest of the weekend

ohmy!!! i could just go a Pimms right now!!! where's my glass?



Ooooh! I fancy one of those right now!


This is my first time reading your blog and I was totally captivated! Your pictures are so vivid, it's as if I'm there enjoying the sea, the sky, and the gorgeous flowers and colors right along with you!

Also, your granny blanket and the octagon blanket are just gorgeous.....I've been crocheting quite a bit lately and leaving my knitting to while away wondering why I forgot it. :)


Saturday afternoon
Attic 24 post on a Saturday!

What in the world is Pimms exactly? What does it taste like???

Love from C. to L.


Oh that Pimms looks almost too good to drink ... almost! Enjoy the day. G


Cheers! Have a great weekend. July x

Sarah Allen

What is Pimms? I will have to investigate that!! I hate that it may not be available here in the states!! Nothing like a gorgeous day outside and a good beverage!!! Sounds like you have had a great day!!!


I have noticed that alot of people in blog land are copying you! EVERYONE wants to start crochet nowadays (including myself i must admit) and there is lots of 'I love, love, love' going on, you know, saying the same word thrice!

Flattering or annoying?

I would be hugely flattered if i were you.

Gosh, people really do get absorbed into this blogging lark dont they!

PS: Your doing well, your blog is still my fave!
