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

Such a pretty little hand to hold.
You are blessed.


I just love that picture of you and your daughter holding hands. My daughter is 22 and we still do that.


Truly the best things in life are free

This is you! A rainbow Wreath!


I love your posts about little pleasures - the best bit is you include photos too. It is so easy to overlook the little things in life or take them for granted. At bedtime, I always ask my kids to say thank you for one lovely thing that happened that day. It always makes us smile :)


Lucy, you warm my heart.

Those flowers are glorious altogether like that. I don't crochet but I'd imagine some granny squares in these colours would look ace!


After a very busy week of cleaning, cleaning, cleaning as I prepare to sell my house, your pictures and words were exactly what I needed.
What a sweet time I had reveling in the simple pleasures of your blog! Thank you!

Absolutely lovely, the sunset, primroses, connection with little people. Ah the sweetness of life !


Oh Lucy I don't know how many times I've dashed upstairs to admire the sky, it's a must do moment! In fact we sometimes phone each other just to say "look out the window!" Real pleasure.

I just found your blog this weekend while looking for help with learning the ripple crochet pattern. Your instructions were great - exactly what I needed.
And these pictures remind me of early Spring in Britain, back when I was living there. Thanks.


Great little moments..


Lucy, you are amazing!!!! You truly are!
Warm wishes from Slovenia


This is a wonderfully inspiring post that cheers no end. Thanks Lucy.


Hi Lucy,
I have been meaning for sometime to let you know that you have entered my life here in the USA in a huge and colorful way. After discovering you just over 3 months ago my life has not been the same, nor my bank account!!!!. I look eagerly for your blogs to brighten my day. I have lived here in th US for 26 yrs and still feel, on rare occasions, home sick for the UK, especially when i see your beautifully sights of the countryside. The latest one of the polyanthas is darling. AS an avid knitter and just knowing the very basic stiches for crochet your clear and precise directions have open up a new meaning in my daily life. Yes, nothing gets done in the house Now that I have the art of hooky time. It started with the birds and it has snowballed from there The birds have been adapted into some chickens. Just adorable. Two granny stripe blankets, one baby size and one large one have been
finished along with 2 spring wreaths. I've just started on a very colorful granny
Square blanket. These are my simple pleasure in life. Thank you for making my life a rainbow of color.
good wishes to you and your family

Pati from London

Like you, it's my family and friends and the little things in life that bring me the most pleasure....x Pati
