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

Three weeks was not enough. you are so lucky to live in such a lovely place. Thank you for the inspiring photos and the wonderful crochet work. It is always a pleasure to visit.

I keep checking back to hear how wonderful the Holiday was for you and your crew! Certainly hope it was. I know I've been relentless, but I WILL be in York to visit soon. Wished we could have hooked up, even for a brief one, to say hey, give you some goodies, and talk. Dang it... Happy days anyway.. :)

Hi Lucy,

I have been reading your blog for ages , and have meant to leave you so many messages- I cannot tell you how much I love it. But now felt like a great time- we came back from Lyme Regis on Friday, having spent a wonderful week away with my husband, and 2 littlies. This precious, long awaited, much needed trip was inspired by you, and wow, what can I say? We loved, loved, loved it- already planning another trip. That little place has captured our hearts- everyone was so friendly. Have a lovely time there. I am Nonnie's sister by the way, or does she call herself Fiona in blogland- hmmm, not sure. x


It all looks so lovely - you take such beautiful photos that it almost feels like we are there too! Hope you have a lovely time :-)


Wave to my dad in Charmouth when you drive past!
Hope the weather cheers up - mind you having driven from Northumberland to Herts yesterday in the driving rain I get the feeling you can cope with it!

ohhhh how lovely! Have a splendid time!


have a wonderful late summer trip home! wish so much you are having better weather than we are... last days SO sizzly hot and humid, many bad storms and damage in parts and suddenly today temps dropped down to not even half... brrrr.
hope you find your mom is doing great and have all spent some precious time together! will be looking forward to you sharing seaside pics etc (and how the new hooky project is coming along)
return home safely, hugs and heartfelt greetings from deutschland


Reading your blog is almost like having a holiday myself. I so enjoy it...and the green countryside is delicious! Mark me as envious. Enjoy your trip.

I adore your photos, Lucy. Thank you for sharing your world. Your blog is one I have read regularly for a few years, along with my other favoites Posie Gets Cozy, Angry Chicken, and Stitchywitch. For the last year I have also read Anger Burger because she is really good with the food.



Have a wonderful holiday. Breath the air and bring some home with you x
