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

What a lovely Lucy post, full of interesting images and bright cheerful colour - just gorgeous! I loved the barges and all the flying bunting! It's lovely to see all the things you've been doing - time just flies by doesn't it! Have a happy rest of the week.

Absolutely love your blog, full of heart skippy stuff, colour & happiness - Thank you!


Happy days, and what a pretty cool bag! xxx


I also love May :) the world is waking up from the long winter, everything turns green and there is not even one day that my fiance is not hearing "oh look at these trees they are so green and so pretty" or "look at these flowers" :) I just started to wonder if he finds it annoying :)

I just love the smiley face rock photo in your daughter's hands. The chimney pot photo is gorgeous, too!! Happy for your lovely update!


So glad to see you have been enjoying lots of outdoorsy family time! Can't wait to hear all about Dorset!


Hey love the blog. Can you tell me which software you use to have those 9 pictures/mosaic aligned so well together. I just love your choice, color and all.


Glorious photos - a lovely visual diary. Sounds like you have had great fun .... and all the lovely blue sky too. Looking forward to Dorset news. x


Just lovely! Thank you for sharing.


So lovely! Thank you for sharing -- and welcome back.


Hi Lucy!
It's good to have you back here in Blogland. Can't wait to see your new hooky projects! And, as always, thank you for your happy and colourful post!


Lovely photos and lovely to hear what you've been up to. NZ is getting chilly and grey and dark and I'm enjoying soaking up all the lovely British springy/summery posts to keep me cheery :-) Makes me a wee bit homesick though :-(


Wow - such amazing colours - thank you for brightening up my week! have a great one.designcrafty


What a busy time you have had! You live in such a beautiful part of the world, mum grew up in Horsforth, I would love to get back one day... Stuck on the other side of the world a the moment, although I do love it here too,


Hi Lucy,
Loving all your lovely pictures, always so bright and colourful.
Especially love the narrow boats on the canal. You see we have just realised our dream and for the last six weeks have been living on our own narrowboat and have started an 18 month break to explore the waterways. At the moment we are in Lincoln, we hope to be in your part of the country later in the summer. Will look out for you walking the towpath!


Time just whizzes by- if you think it is fast in your forties, just wait until your fifties...whoosh...another year goes past at breakneck speed....fun though!

Hi Lucy, someone may have already posted this, so sorry if I am repeating! Simnel cake was traditionally for Mothering Sunday during the war. The girls working away would save rations to get the ingredients to make a simnel cake. That's the story I have always been told - american mothering sunday is in May?! Can't wait to see what you have been crocheting! xx


You really do live in one of the prettiest places. Loved the colourful update. Vicki x


It all looks so lovely Lucy! can't wait to see what you have been working on! fliss xxx
