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

Hi Lucy
Would you mind sharing the exact locations of these playgrounds as we will be staying in Yorkshire soon and my near 2 year old would love these! Thanks.


are you a member of the cloud appreciation society -http://cloudappreciationsociety.org/ ? If not you might like to be.

Such gorgeousness!!!


Haha, at first glance I thought the den was a car! I'm not the only one I see. :-)) Thank you for sharing again!


p.s. Yesterday I bought really pink yarn of 'different textures' (woolly, shiney, fluffy etc) and I am going to make my first Lucy-inspired ripple-ripple-ripple cushion for my little girl Charlotte (almost 3, loves everyting pink)!


Autumn makes me happy to be outside too. What beautiful scenery, you are a lucky lady to live in such a place. Enjoy your time while your babies are young, the older they get (or maybe it's the older I get) the faster they grow. Have a lovely week.


Lovely and charming post once again, as usual.


I love your fireplace! I wish mine was all ready to go!


I love your blog!! I live in Dallas Texas and we just survived the hottest summer (71 days over 100) and continuing worst drought in our history. Seeing your photos of gorgeous England is pure delight. Your words and photos remind me of the beauty and value of small and large delights in life. I have two major surgeries coming up and am home most of the time so your blog is a wonderful escape. Have you always been this cheerful, optimistic and able to see the beauty in life? Thanks again!!


I have that calendar too and October was my favourite picture 'cos the ducks too! Show Little B pictures of Flora, my little duck who I rescued last Spring ... http://adaliza.wordpress.com/category/claws-paws/
She's just started laying eggs too!
I've just started a granny square blanket with amazing wool from the US - have you seen Webs the 'closeout' store - great bargains but huge shipping costs unfortunately. Just this once, I treated myself!


A bubble tub, my all time favourite thing, so much fun. Half term hols sound exciting at your place.

I experienced Yorkshire for the first time late september, a truly wonderful place


Lucy you are such a joy to read! Your posts are a constant cheer-up! Thank you!


Thanks for sharing all of the photos. I especially loved the ones of your Mum's cottage the other day. They were so English-y looking! Made me want to take a trip out there!Love your blog, keep up the good work!


I've been following your blog for a few weeks now and just want to say how much I enjoy each and every post! What a wonderfully creative and articulate young lady you are! Thank you for your granny stripe pattern, I've made a cute baby blanket with it and it came out beautifully. I've been 'hooking' since my mother taught me as a child and it's so refreshing to see younger artists (and you ARE an artist) make it their own. I smile to see all things 'granny' come around again, as they were so popular when I was a teen in the 70's. You've inspired me to start my own little journal blog to keep track of my art and crafts projects. I agree wholeheartedly that photos are a marvelous way to hold onto your memories. How wonderful for your children to have a such a smart and talented mum!


WOW would love to see a full bigger picture of your newest ripple afghan. It has grown quite a bit since you last posted a picture of it. from what I can see of it, it looks wonderful!!

Hi Lucy, Can i just ask, how do you make your photo mosaics? Are they hard to do and do you need software to do them?

Many thanks,

Nic xx


Your pictures make me miss living in England soo much! Absolutely lovely, and I love the riot of color on your couch. :D


Lucy!!my kids do the same with the sofa!!! it turns into a castle, a house and many magical things more!! blankets are really useful to play with.


What a lovely post Lucy- the chalk on the ground took me right back to my own childhood.It's lovely seeing kids being kids :)Happy autumn!

Being ordinary is a blessing. It gives us time to catch our breath and refuel for the times that drain us of energy and leave us exhausted. My daughters are grown and believe me, I still miss the days when they were little. There was no such thing as blogging back then just snap shots to capture those moments in time. Enjoyed your post. Thanks for sharing.

really lovely sky shots :)


That's amazing views you have from your attic window! It's lovely to see the change in the landscape over time isn't it? You're so right abuot the ordinary things being so precious and just as important as 'events'. I wish I was blogging when my children were small, never too late though! :)

So sweet to think of Little B quacking away:)That October photo reminds me,I REALLY need to rake some leaves:)Memory..whats that??I tell my Girls I'll soon have to wear a name tag so I'll know who I am:)Love Little Lady's knitting case!I miss those den building days.Although.. maybe not, now that I think about it,my Girls would remove ALL the cushions from All the furniture and bring the cover from their beds to the living room too:O Love the pics, Been thinking about a"sweet" Chrismas tree this year,with crocheted candy,doughnuts,cookies etc.the no calorie kind:)Your blue chest by the fire place has inspired me to paint a recent purchase from an estate sale,a chest painted a very ugly shade of green.Thanks Lucy:)


They DO grow so fast...SIGH!


How cute is your little ladys knitting set, reminds me of one I had as a child. Lovely sunrise photo


Hi Lucy! I really falled in love with your blog, I will get married on Semptember, and when we will buy a house, I would like a house similar to your house, I really love all the things you do! Best wishes
