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

Hugs to you Lucy - and yes, the angels are watching over you all for sure - white feathers are always a sign they are there.


Hugs coming your way! Cx

Awhile back I was driving my husband and I home from town and before I knew it I saw this white bird fly in front of my car and feathers flew all about. It was the weirdest feeling. I had hit a dove and my reaction was one of disbelief. I have never seen a white dove other than in magic shows. For it to have flown out of nowhere was so strange. I said to my husband, "OMG! I hit a white dove!" And yes, he saw it too. When we got home I found 1 white feather in the grill of the car. I thought about that bird for weeks. A snow white dove....as in the song God sends his love on the wings of a snow white dove. I am sure when the white feather landed on you that you too had strange feelings, like it was some sort of message from above. Maybe it was an angel Lucy, like you said :)


How magical to have a large white feather attach itself to you. It's as if the universe were trying to send you a message. I love when things like that happen. It causes me to think about what might be out there just beyond our reach.

Sorry about your mother....I hope she gets better soon. I just started reading your blog and I think its so wonderful to live in England. I'd love to visit some day.

Keep looking for feathers.....all the best. Emily

Dearest Lucy,
My mother of 84 years left us last Sept. It's just now starting to feel like it was longer than a few days ago. And my tears still fall. I keep a photo on my desk, in my purse and in my "transformation chamber" (her name for her bathroom). When I get teary, I pick up the nearest picture and kiss her good. Makes me smile again and bless her soul. Hope this could comfort you a little.

Warm positive thoughts for your Mum Lucy, and a big warm hug for you too. Waiting, and hoping, and trying to stay positive, and maintain a semblance of doing "normal" things is very hard work!! Prayers and love to you all, Gloria

Keep a chin up and only the best wishes for you and your mum. I have had the vigil with my mum and it was as you say grueling. Angels are watching over you and yours.


Thinking of you. I really relate to that feeling of needing to lay down the worry for a while. We had an 11 day SCBU stay; it was terrifying and so relentless and inescapable.


Thinking of both of you with all my heart. It is such a difficult time and I know how you feel.




A white feather falling from the sky. What a beautiful sign from the powers that Be. I am still thinking of you and will continue to do so. Blessed be Lucy x

my prayers are with you.
Take care.


bless you Lucy, all good hopes and prayers for you and your family from the other side of the pennines xx


Lucy, Best wishes and God's blessings on your mom...I loved looking at your very bright granny square quilt. It reminds me of something my godmother (who is in heaven now) would make. May God give you peace and comfort and joy. Blessings from the USA!!!


Oh, I feel for you and your family. Praying for you.


Hello Lucy, I keep thinking about you and your Mum. I just want to let you know I've been crocheting the summer garden squares from lots of oddments I had that I couldn't bear to through out. I always thought I couldn't do proper crochet, only edging for knitting. With your helpful instructions and pics I had no problem. I'm now a confirmed addict. I realised when I packed my hooky in my bag to take down my allotment! I'm making a rather pleasant bag out of the summer squares. I'd post a pic but I don't know how. perhaps I need to have my own blog. Anyway my best wishes and thoughts for your Mum's continued recovery.
