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

I missed you so much. Iv'e gotten hooked on your blog. I missed you so much, so I went back to your old blogs and read them. I am new to this blogging, so glad I found yours first. Can't wait until tomarrow to see what you have for us.I've found a new friend....Lois from NC...USA


Welcome home!
It's a wonderful feeling to be home, isn't it? We have been home for ... ooh, almost an hour now after a NINE hour drive and I am relishing being sat on my sofa with a big cup of tea. I have enjoyed being away but I was craving home for the whole journey (and even a secret little bit of the holiday if I'm honest) and I am so glad to be back. I'm even looking forward to the sorting and the washing!

I'm glad I'm so happy to be home as recently I have been having some "do I really like Leeds anymore" wobbles, and wondering whether we should stay up here, but now I feel that YES, I do still want to be here :) (although not in this flat, but that's easily remedied.) Argh, sorry for big rambly comment!

Just thought I'd say how I've enjoyed leafing through some of your posts - I come from North Yorkshire but have been down in East Anglia for ages now, so I love your writings about the North - the hills, the seaside etc - makes me homesick! Also your blog has made me try knitting again - don't know what I'm making, I'll just see what evolves! Might even try patchwork again soon! All the best, take care Anne H xx


So glad you are back online Lucy! Enjoying your vacation pictures. Please tell us about the yarn...beautiful colors and hope they are not discontinued...

I've learned that DB Rialto Aran is pretty much equal to the yarn you make your crochet bag with!


The one day l don't check to see if you're back and had a wonderful time you logged on hehe.....WOW! what wonderful photos....absolutely to take your breath away
Glad you're back though!
Missed the daily read


Welcome back Lucy!
I found your blog in the last month or two but have never commented. I love reading about your life- so much that you do with crochet inspires me! :) Love your pictures and I look forward to all your future blogs!

Nice to see you back Lucy - enjoy the last vestiges of the summer break. The new term started officially yesterday here in Somerset but most schools took the day as an Inset day - so the younger ones and I will head back in this morning, Sarah being an Upper 6th student will not start back until Mon 14th - lucky her but she's busy creating her Personal Statement for her university applications - scary stuff!


Welcome home! The light from your attic is absolutely dreamy... and I am green with envy over your beach treasure. We can occasionally find good "sea glass" in the NW US, but never china shards. I am working on my first ever patchwork quilt in summer "ade" colors - lemonade, orangeade, strawberry lemonade - and can't wait to see what inspiring thing you come up with for your couch. Although you wouldn't know me from Eve, I have missed you!

Ms. Lucy,
I have a question a bout your mini-grannies... what size are your squares (in inches if possible)? Did you modify them in anyway to make them so small? Yours look so wee when I compare them to my mini's. I'm sure it's a "translation over the internet" issue. I know it sounds a little goofy but it would give me a little peace of mind to know the dimensions of your little grannies. Love your colorful, sweet creations!

September is my favorite month and not just because I have a birthday soon. I love the change in light. The cooling not quite autumnal, days. The definitely cooler nights. And school supplies. I'm an office/school supply junkie. I could do with out the crazy return of schedules but something must give. Love your new yarn and your sea glass. Ok, all be told I just love your blog. Thanks for sharing and inspiring!



Lucy, been looking for you everyday. So glad you and your family are back home safe and sound. Happy that you had a good holiday. Lovely pictures and yarn. Sylvia


so glad you are back, and those yarn colours are just divine, makes my mouth water LOL


Mmmmmmmmmmmmm...what lovely looking yarn! Can't wait to know what it is or see what it becomes!
Welcome home!

Alice C

Hurray! You're back! Lovely holiday photos to look forward to - bring it on!


Glad your holiday went well but it's always nice to get home. (Even nicer once the washing's done..) Your attic photos are wonderful - beautiful colours.

Inga Helene

Welcome back! And what a lovely yarn. I have btw used your scallops on a granny square afghan (and suddenly I remembered I didn't credit you in the blog post where I show it). I'll have to write a post about the afghan, and then I'll give you credit for it. Is it ok?


so happy to see you back..
love to see pics..
I love the colors of that yarn so pretty..
take care,


Helloooo You! Nice to see you back - have just returned from Northumberland myself this weekend & had an amazing time. If I'd known you were there I'd have kept my eyes peeled! The yarn colours are simply beautiful.
