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

This is a wonderful post. I just found your blog and I'm loving it's flavor! Can you tell me, pretty please, where you found that fabulous 3-D puzzle? It's absolutely exquisite!


Hi Lucy,

I,m from Australia recently retired and only discovered your site last week. You are such a talented lady. Love your work particularly your yarn bag and ripple blanket and flowers. Really I love it all, whilst I knit better than crochet I can't wait to try out your patterns. Envy you at the moment with your summer and be able to have such a lovely day with your children.

From one colour-loving Lucy to another, that shot of the chair with the cushion and blanket and bag truly made my mouth water ;) Delicious!


Your flowers look really nice .I have lots of little pots around my step, and i just love coming home to see the pretty flowers.My house is a tip but ah well at least my front garden looks lovely!!!


I'm greatful too and shares with you most of these "ordineriness"! Thank you for the post!


Thank you for sharing your lovely photos of ordinariness with us. It sounded a perfect day. And what a beautiful part of the Country you live in too.I just love your attic view.

BB is looking lovely :) So you are pinning to your attic floor? Or you have something underneath. I am sooo close to finished my babette, and think that once it's put together I might want to do one more block just to make it look just "so".. but not sure what big enough space I have to do it in.
Do you have any washing tips for all these crochet materpieces?? :)
Have a good weekend :)


Beautiful pictures, Lucy!


what a wonderful day! Sounds heavenly! Hurrah for Teacher Training Days and sunshine. Love to know where Polly and White Ranger were off to!!


That chair Lucy....in a word.
(My own version of Mary Poppin speak!)




Yes, we must appreciate every moment of our little ones growing up, especially the normalness of their lives.
It's only when I see photos like yours of the view from your attic window in the evening makes me realise how early it gets dark here..8 to 8.30ish, funny,eh!


What a lovely day Lucy thank you for sharing it with us. You always help to remind me to notice and enjoy the little things which make up each day and to keep in the sunshine. Your view from the attic is wonderful; I am almost there with you having a coffee and crocheting away. Karenx


That's exactly the reason why I started to blog. The love and beauty and colour and happiness that can come from an ordinary day with your family. A record to make us stop and be in the moment and appreciate the everyday.

Hi Lucy!
I love your new flowers!
You can tell ordinariness in an extraordinary way!..Why don't you start writing fairy-tales? I'm sure you would have a big success!
Have a nce weekend!


I love days like that. I remember having those sort of days when my boys were younger - enjoy them


Your blanket is looking great - can't stop gazing at the photo!

I giggled at Cinderella's arrival :-)


It sounds like you had a perfect day of ordinariness ~ your photographs are lovely ~ Thanks for sharing them with us, it is so easy to forget that day to day life is what it's all about :O)

My favorite was Cinderella crashing into the boy world and whirling about in her frilly dress not caring one sniggly bit that she's totally inappropriately dressed for a sword clashing dragon slaying boy's world. ahhh female confidence ; ) Kate~


Your ordinary bits charm me, because they are so different from mine. Yet, your post has made me try to re-evaluate my own every day, and find its own charms.

Thank You! Have a lovely weekend.


I love all of your shots, the first ones remind me of my playroom where boy toys and girl toys unite to make wonderful scenarios ;)
and then the rest of the shots are just lovely, I love that chair youcrochet on! so colorful and cheerful! thank you for sharing


How lovely. I'm very envious of the view from your attic window. When you live in a big city you long for a view of green pastures and rolling hills.
