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

O always love taking in the view from your attic - no matter what time of day or month of the year it is.
As always you are inspiring.
Love this months collection of photos and I always love your crochet.
Rug up and stay warm, very different from my weather - it is summer here.
Take care.


Ahh Lucy, you live in the cosiest little town! I love the views from your attic, your street, the canal ♥ This January post has warmed me up, it is sooo cold over here, I actually wished I could reach into the picture of the hot chocolate, mmmmm :D xxxx


Lucy, truly gorgeous pictures and the hot chocolate looks yummy. Hope you don't mind but I've nominated you for the versatile blogger award. Sam xx

Hi Lucy,

Well, good for you, beating the January blues with splashes of colour. Well done! Should be more of it I say.,

I liked this comment you made - 'I do really love to star and moon gaze up through the chimney pots and rooftops.'
It made me think of Mary Poppins. I can just see Dick Van Dyke in his chimney sweep clothes, dancing on the rooftops.....

aaahhh,,, memories.

Thanks for sharing your colour.




That Hot Chocolate made me want to fix some... I make Mexican Hot Chocolate. You make the mix yourself, keep it in a jar... And fix it anytime!

Just beautiful. Your post gives me such a warm feeling. I have said it before and I will say it again. Your world is so colorful. I want one.


Hi Lucy! I've been reading your blog for the past few months after stumbling upon it while trying to teach myself to crochet! I must say, I hit the jackpot because not only are your crochet patterns/tutorials great, I also love your writing! I read your linked posts about balance and gratitude and I wanted to recommend the book "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp to you! It's such a wonderful book and I think you would enjoy her style of writing! You can find it on Amazon. Anyway, thanks for the glimpse into your corner of the world! The view out my window is quite different here in Fort Worth, TX, but yet I feel much is the very much the same.

Really enjoy reading your monthly re-caps, Lucy. Await the unveiling of the Shelves of Doom!!! I think we can all relate to pockets of our homes being just like that :)


Hello Lucy

Thanks to you I've become a fluttering Flybaby. Your 'Shelves of Doom' lear over you!!!! remember you can 'do! anything for 15 mins.!' Maybe think of half a shelf at a time? xxxx


What amazing light you get in winter! I realise there isn't a lot of it but the angle and the subsequent colours are amazing.

I'm sure you've seen it already but I saw "One Man and a Campervan" for the first time last night and thought it would be right up your alley.

So glad to hear you're better, Lucy. Hope you can carve out some much-needed down time. I think it goes a long way in healing and helping our ole bodies, bones, and minds. Don't fret those shelves of doom. My momma always said, your babies will always remember the time you spent with them and how you made them feel, not how the house looked... and yours is always happy and colourful anywho! Thanks for always sharing and being a bright spot.

Hi Lucy,
We now have a bouncing bonny 8-month old boy as well as our own nearly-6 year old Little Lady, and I too feel like January has been spent recovering from Christmas! How fab to read your summary and be able to reflect on the similarities in my own life - family comings and goings, baking, knitting (I will get hooky one day soon though!) and the enigmatic weather! It has helped me to mark out the time, and hopefully will help me give a kick-start to February.
'Shelves of Doom' made me laugh - we have some of those too :oD


Such a bright and cheerful post, thank you.


Thank you for sharing your honesty & beautiful crochet rainbows :-D I'm off to figure out where I can squeeze in a regular Home Blessing too... :-)


Lovely post Lucy, looks like you've got the tone for January just right, plenty of comfort and colour! Happy February!


You've definitely made the January days happy and bright!
I have a coffee pot of the most brightly, gem-colored flowers on my coffee table and they make my day and remind me of you and your colorful world!


Your town looks lovely Lucy. I've always had a bit of a canal boat thing. How nice to be able to wander along the tow path.
Stunning photos!
