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

Just found your lovely crochet flowers.
I am helping a group of ladies to learn to crochet and these flowers are ideal to start with.
Thank you.

What a wonderful reflection. I've started back to me healthy eating too, and have decided the only baked goods I'll eat are the ones I make. I'll just be happy when spring time fruit is around; what I wouldn't give for a juicy peach mmmm

Susan Smith

Oh yes! Thank you! What I would't give to walk along that canal, in any season, just for the experience of it.

I am loving your post- such beautiful colour rich photos and I always enjoy hearing about your day. Thankyou for continuing to share. Your blog is like a happy lil ray of sunshine :)

Hey Lucy!
Fantastic you are Number one in Crochet Magazine!
Guess what? I am one of those pictured in Sue's Sibol blog, I am the third row, the third one over...dark hair with a head like a basketball, that's me!
Love, Kay

P.S. You told me recently that your blue flower is called Lobelia...thanks again!


Ah those yummy hot cocoas! I'm trying to be good with eating less sweets. Then I remember the day you posted that gorgeous jam filled cake. It nearly killed my efforts! I also must confess that I still have one Christmas tree up in the hearthroom and the mantle... I plan to get it packed up this weekend! Anyone want to hold me accountable?? I may need some prodding. Happy February, Lucy.


Hi Lucy,
Love your blog! You provide a wonderful real-life ongoing story - I can hardly wait until your next post. Your everyday life is so comforting to me, Lucy and "J" and dear children are going about their lives and I get to read about and see your wonderful pictures and try out your crochet idea!
I look forward to your tutorials, each one. I also am looking forward to the tutorial for the Flower wall hanging and your dear little flower scarf.
Thanks so much for all of your time and effort with this endeavor, it is greatly enjoyed!
I live in West Sacramento, CA


Housekeeping is boring. But it needs to be done. glad you are getting a hold on that.

Tiina Meriläinen

Oh my! I just LOVE your colourful life!! In Finland we have such dark and grey (and white) wintertime so it's quite inspiring to read your blog. :)

Congrats on the award!!! I bought the mag for the jacket pattern and then saw yr triumph ... Well deserved


A cheery colourful post as ever, thank you


Indeed you have been combatting the weather with your wonderful colors!!! Thank you for the cheery post.


Lucy- the way in which you present January it doesn't seem so bad! We too here in Canada have long days of low sunshine. Your lovely pics make it seem not so light deprived! Thanks for sharing your January and what a great idea to do so. I especially loved all the colours- of course, you are so great for that. It certainly lifts the spirits. And I agree with you about Jan. It does indeed seem to last longer than any other month- weird! It is like some crazy wintery time warp thingy! I look forward to seeing what you come up with next!

Hi Lucy, thanks for your blog i love it!!!!!lot of Kisses from Tenerife in Spain


ooooh, I so know how you feel about the trying to get back to normal Lucy! My eldest (who's at school) keeps the younger two amused and I reckon it's only just now that I'm feeling more 'normal' again! Here's to a happy February x


Sweet, felt like a mini vaca in my very own chair!


Linda Kennedy

January started out the year quite well for me. And for us North Central Florida it has been exceptionally warm this year. (I'm not complaining by any means.) The only down side will be if we have a freeze, which we often do well into February. The plant life is all confused and starting to bloom way to early. Thanks, again, for a beautiful post and for putting the archives back.

Stitchy Mc Floss

I love reading your blog, it's like a slice of happy for the entire day. :)

Blessings always

Kim Watson

Thank you Lucy. Your post is just what I needed. I am in a tight spot right now in the beginings of what promises to be a very messey divorce, and your post brought a tear to my eye and smile to my face. Once again Thank You.
