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

absolute FEAST for the eyes!!! those small things you listed in a paragraph...I have trouble posting my thoughts in my blog...that's why we have others that inspire us to read!! Those are the PERFECT things in life..that IS life!...ugh..here in the States...I wish those things on a whole were what Americans would cherish (an over generalization indeed, but more on the truer side more and more!) 'We' are too busy..too busy with 'stuff'...whether it's for keeping up with the Jones or making ends meet..those domestic feelings, small treasures MUST be revisited ...if nothing else- for our kids! ...'our' activities, our goals, our focus, our thoughts seem mostly externally from our HOMES! I'm sorry so long, but you are an inspiration...I may be linking you in my next post....

Emma @ Mummy Musings

Hi Lucy... I hope you don't mind but I was so struck by the beauty of colour in your home. I sat back and looked around my home and made a decision to get more colour in our lives. I used one of your photos and linked this post to my blog post - www.mareerose.blogspot.com. Thank you for the inspiration


I love your blog!! Happy New Year

Happy New Year! Just found your blog and have been luxuriating in all the beautiful, colorful, happy images. Pure Bliss! I ve just returned to crochet after a 20 year hiatus and your blog as really inspired me. I see some birdies in my future crafting.
Really looking forward to reading your blog in 2011.


It's a great thing to be able to appreciate all the little but good things in life. And it's wonderful that you keep sharing it with us, your colorful world brightens my days up! And it makes me want to fill my life with more color too. I really love coming here!


I just wanted to say thank you for bringing me lots of homely comfort when I have those dreadful homesick moments sweeping over me. I always find a browse over your blog always makes me feel better again. A lovely reflection on the many things I miss being so far away from home. xx

Lucy than you so much for sharing your life with us. I can't tell you how much your blog has inspired me and made my year so cheerful as I attempted to create some of your gorgeous creations. I so look forward to each new blog. May God bless your sweet family in 2011!


You make me want to learn to crochet....really bad......just loved your Christmas ornaments...i can do a chain stitch really well!!!Thanks for your colorful blog it really amazes me each time i read it!!


Happy New Year to you Lucy. Loving the photos in this post and the other 2010 reviews you've been doing these last few days. Reading what you've said about your blog makes me want to carry on with mine. I've been having so many debates in my head about whether to carry on with it but I love the concept that it is a good way to keep track of family life and the memories we create in the coming years. Now we're a proper family I like the thought of that. Looking forward to another year of your lovely happy blog. Fiona x
