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

You must be exhausted! You have to make the most of the weather though don't you? Who knows when it will be that lovely again!!


Your blog is so wonderful.. lovely bright colours, beautiful landscapes.. I envy you for living in such a lovely country. I dream of returning to Great Britain and spend some years of my life there.
Thank you for sharing with us your passions..

OMG Lucy! I took the same picture Sunday or maybe Monday....!!! That is of the bluest of blue sky - my husband declared I was MAD!
Why take a picture of just sky he says... and I say it's the blue the BEST blue EVER and it's not THAT often that we see it and it marks such a beautiful hot day and we all had such fun and so on, it encapsulates a very HAPPY day and THAT'S why I have a photo of a blue sky....I had a whisp of cloud too and tried to get a red kite flying overhead but I think I just missed it. THANKS for lovely photos as always!
Love X Susan


Hi Lucy,

So enjoy your cheerfulness about life, family, imagination, and creations! I don't know how I actually found you, but it was a blessing. I have relocated to Vermont and away from kids and grandchildren. I have always enjoyed sewing, knitting and crocheting, always have a project or two going but not always finished or it takes a long time. You have inspired me with your colors and love of life. Thank you!


Wasn't Sunday a beautiful day!The scenery is gorgeous Lucy!

Oh Lucy,
That is just what I needed to take me away,,,thanks so much for taking on such a lovely walk with so much green around..and beautiful scenery...



Lucy, I do envy you those wide open skies and those rolling hills and all those beautiful greens.

Wonderful that you and your family can get out to those spaces, and get refreshed, and then ... go home to that attic and create, create, create. xo

hill upon hill

You have pubs in good places!


Ohhhh Lucy so wonderful pictures...
So wonderful landscapes!!
I love England for these views!!
Thank to give us all this beauty!!!

Take care sweet Lucy!

How wonderful! Nothing beats the British countryside, whatever the weather.


Beautiful surroundings!

Just wanted to say thank you, I've tried crocheting your jar jacket, it didn't turn out perfect, but I really like ita lot! And - just as you said - very funny and quickly made. I've posted it in my blog.

Love, Annelie


Lucy- thank you for your lovely response the other day! I feel like I have a kindred spirit sitting in the English North. For a southern Californian, you bring to life all the locales that I have read in books all my life - James Herriot, Secret Garden, plus so many others. A hedgerow? is there a nicer word-picture in the English language?(perhaps only my other favorite - linen-fold paneling)

thanks for the pictures of what I imagine in my dreams of England!



Don't you just live in a fantastic part of Great Britain ?? Though i must say that i love all the parts of your country, hahahaha !!
We are so lucky to visit Yorkshire this year in july !!! I often showed my husband and daughter pictures from your walks etc. so they really loved it and noe we are really going, yippiee !!!
Have a wonderful week, Janneke from the Netherlands.


Nice pictures! :) I love your crochet work! I've recently used your flowers patterns in my last project. I would like you to see it in my blog.


Hi Lucy
Lovely pictures, I felt like I was there.
