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.

WOW! Little baby is one year old! Amazing how time flies, I used to come here often when you were still pregnant.

My little boy Liam will be 11 years old next month! I am not sure you remember me so let me refresh your memory: I am a Brazilian woman living in Amsterdam with a half English son (my ex-husband is English).

I am the design manager for a US yarn company. We are very interested in having you design with our yarns. Please let me know if you are interested.


Hi Lucy, love your blog and your sense of colour - wow! I've turned into a total crochet addict because of you. Just thought you would like to know that you can use Google Translate to translate those pages from French to English. You just copy and paste the url and Ta - da!


My absolutely first time here - I sooo enjoyed all the pictures with all colurs - that makes me happy - and you wrte so very funny about stuff, I sitting here grinning coz I found your place online! I will sure visit your Attic online more times! Thank you!


I have been looking for AGES to find brightly colored dinnerware, WHERE EVER did she get that jug! I love your plates too! I need to steal them!


Lucy I'd like to make some hearts as a garland like in the photo of your fireplace but my hearts need surgery!!! Help please, how do you do it? Karen xxx

Thank You soooo much and have a beautiful new year Lucy & Family

I love the image seen Grenier, think of all the pictures he took of the landscape that really shows the hills of Yorkshire, that I remember. Nice to see amaryllis, the mines are now gone to a floppy disk, but you still have to look forward


Happy New Year and Happy 1st Birthday dear Little B. Love the picture of him under his own crochet blanket. I have my own little F asleep next to me in his moses basket right now. Heart lurching indeed. Looking forward to another year of tales from the attic. Fiona x

Happy Birthday to Little B. I feel like if it is my own nephew's birthday! Thanks Lucy for your beautiful and warm blog!

What a great way to start the new year, with color, color, and more colors!


Hello, I am catching up with your posts after a long rest from blogland - lovely pics as always. I made your cranberry tiffin which I blogged about before - this time I swapped the digestives for leftover Christmas shortbread, added pistachios and used one and a half tall foiled Santas as my chocolate!!

Good morning Lucy, from cold and snowy Ohio! I am sure somewhere in your archives you have mentioned what kind of camera you take your lovely pics with. I have a Sony Cyber-shot 5.1 mega pixels(presently in need of batteries) but using my husband's smaller Sony Cyber-shot 7.2 mega pixels. I would love to know what kind you use.I took my one girlfriend her Christmas present yesterday and showed her your lovely blog. We both admitted that your snaps are pretty enough to be made into a calendar. As we scrolled through the many lovelies I showed her the pic of your son's cookie. We both got a good laugh :) :) I am having fun blogging, but still needing to get all the bugs out and I guess that will come with time. Any help you or anyone else can give me is appreciated, and maybe in time I can be of help to others. Have a good day and keep warm!


Hello Lucy, thanks so much for popping over to Apples and Pears and leaving a lovely comment. It is thanks to you and your gorgeous creations that I picked up my crochet hook again after many years! xxx


A very happy Birthday to little B. And thank you for another lovely posting, Happy new year to you all.

Happy New Year, Lucy, and Happy Birthday to Little B! I stop by quite often, but hardly ever comment, so I wanted to be sure to thank you for the past year's worth of creative, inspiring, cosy and cheerful posts. Reading your words always feels like sitting with a good friend over a cup of tea :-) Very best wishes for 2011.


What a lovely post. Thank you so much for so many lovely pictures - they really gladden the heart. Have you thought of printing your own calendars for sale? I love the jug. Isn't it nice when friends give such thoughtful presents.
Best wishes for the New Year. I'm looking forward to seeing your new projects over the year.


Your colorful, enthusiastic blog always brings a smile to my face. It encourages me, as a new crocheter, to keep on trying. And I've wanted to see the English countryside forever; THANK YOU for the spectacular views and pics.
Lovin' you from a village in Maine, USA.
Mary :-)


Lucy, You've got to go to Bee In My Bonnet blog and see the cushions with the crocheted edges. They are just too cute! http://beeinmybonnetco.blogspot.com/

I love your blog. I stumbled across it one night while browsing the web. I am always returning to see how your brightly colored world is going and if you have shared anymore patterns especially your sweet flower granny square pattern. I have went all the back to 2008 and followed you. Happy first birthday B! I know how proud you are of him, and you other children. Happy New Year, Lucy and family. Hope this year is filled with lots of joy and happiness.

SO SWEET! I still watch my bear sleep, i think the baby comes out long after they are finished being babies...

I've never tried growing an amaryllis before, they are so pretty though... maybe I'll have to try!

Dearest Lucy,
I knew there was something else! Little B was born only a day after me. He is a Capricorn, WOW!!!! I am always grateful for your Blogs as they disperse such a wide smile across my face. Some people are just so inspiring and you are one of them. Always looking at the good and appreciating Mother Nature. I wish you all the time you need to get everything you want done :) for 2011. As a mother of 4 ( who are all grown) I know how busy life can get. Cherish those young moments they are precious.
Happy 2011!
