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'm sure someone already told you, the flowers are hibiscus. I bought myself a bright pink one 3 years ago, when I moved from Massachusetts to Virginia.


hi love your blog and your pictures it looks as if you had a great time away a well deserved rest


Great pictures.


Babies are cheeky little critters! They always do what you want them to when you are not there to see it and they do what you don't want them to and they will NEVER do something when you want someone else to see it!


Hello Lucy,
I discover your lovely blog a few weeks ago.Thank very for the "how to", it helps me a lot, althow it's difficult for me sometimes, to understand other language.
I am from the Canary Island,Spain.I am tired of warm sunny weather all the year, and i miss the cold and rain you have.
The red flower it's an "Hibiscus" it's very common here, and very hard,it doesn't need much attention,but the sun to have flowers.They came in many different colors.
It sound a very nice weekend,and Menorca is's even more relaxing.Less people.
I'll follow you and your nice crochets.


my little one has just started to crawl too at a little over 8 months old. No chance of a child free getaway withn me especially with the breast feeding1


This view isn`t bad, either, though I do so much love the view from the attic. What a blue this sky is! Curious to know where you were… Sometimes it is good to be without the daily duties, not matter how much you love your small ones...


Not so relaxing to get back home then... :) They really grow so fast the first year, don't they? Hope you had a lovely time!


Wow - it looks amazing!
I hope your batteries were recharged and that the massive pile of washing magically disappears ;)


That all looks so nice.. l am a big fan now of yr blog..One of the all time best l`ve read..Love the crochet, etc.. Regards, Hahnsmum, Bingara, NSW, AUSTRALIA

I follow your blog (as do a plethora of others) regularly and I'm heart-warmed that you got some relaxing -You- time. Your pictures portray the location as simply idyllic.

Glad to have you back, too!



Hi I've just found this page on an italian web site, and I think you can be interested in it.


Thanx for your great blog, I love it!


Dear Lucy,
I'm so pleased that you managed to get a break away. Pity wasn't around for you or I would have done your ironing for you.


Surely you didn't run away to Southern California in a weekend?!! Lovely view though!


I'm sooooo jealous!!!

Where did you go??? Hope you had a lovely relaxing happy time!!!!
Have a lovely week!


Oooh, that view looks lovely. Can't wait to hear about where you've been :-)



That looks scrumptious!!! I'm jealous! BUT glad you had a wonderful time!

So glad you had a lovely time :-)

Wow! It looks just like the Canary Islands. But it feels like if that's a bit far for a "little" trip;)
Wherever it was, I know you so deserve it:)
And Little B is crawling, how fun!
Love from Anna xxx
