About Me

  • Hello! 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

Loved this post. I haven't visited Dorset before, it must be wonderful to live here!


I love reading about your trips to the sea. I live a landlocked life and love seeing the beaches and the beautiful scenery. Sounds like you had the perfect getaway.


Too lovely to cheapen with a lot of words. Absolutely beautiful!


ahhhh i love the view and the yarns also. i wish i can visit your place but it was far far away... i'm from malaysia, i guess u know where it is right coz i've read u bought sticker paper from someone in malaysia right :)


Thank you! I feel as if I was there with you! Your pictures are wonderful, bright, beautiful and so interesting! Thank you again! ♥♥♥


Thanks for the cyber holiday Lucy! :) It sounds like a wonderful time. And I wonder what you are up to with the hook?

Oh my word, St. Catherine's Cathedral is so beautiful. Living in America, you don't come across churches like that very often. We have some gorgeous old churches/Cathedrals in the heart of Detroit, Michigan, put poverty and crime have taken its toll on them. There aren't many left in there natural state. To see one out on a hill, I can't imagine.

I am thoroughly enjoying your posts about your vacation. Can't wait to go shopping tomorrow.


It's so sweet that your Daughter saves every penny for her dream home!

Oh, I'm so jealous! Lol, but in a good way. I've always wanted to live in the UK, I really think in a past life I was English :), but in this life I'm a 34 year old Mexican-American living as far away from the English countryside as you can get. I've lived my whole life in the Desert of the American South-West, New Mexico to be exact. I just discoverd your blog today, I followed a link for your Neat Ripple Tutorial & I started reading your blog, now I'm in love. :D Thank you for posting such beautiful pictures and allowing me a glimpse into life in the country of my heart. :)


Fantastic pictures! Great colours!

Gorgeous pics! Thanks for the vicarious vacation.

Funny how the little people get so fixated on poo. My niece is 2 also and when she visits our barnyard full of chicks and goats, she is usually distracted by the "poo poo." What is it about that stuff?


Oh what wonderful fun and beautiful photos! Thank you for sharing them! :)


Such lovely news, fantastic photos as always and pleasure to read as always Maggie


I love these kind of posts as much as the crochet ones! It is so refreshing to take a virtual trip with you, seeing such beautiful country. And the aerial photography link was amazing as well:)


Hi Lucy,

Boy you've got me all excited. We are returning to Lyme Regis during the next school holidays over the Jubilee, and I cannot wait. It was due to your blog that we went last year and I absolutely fell in love with the area. I am going to print out a few of your posts before we go as a tour guide- so thank you. I have a 3 and 6 year old, and my parents are joining my hubby and the little people too so it should be wonderful. If you have any recommendations for other local haunts I would love to hear them. As a Yorkshire lass, (who returned up there for Easter) I love to hear all about your home area too. I've spent many a happy day in York- a treat most hols with my Mum and Sis, as kids. Small world isn't it? Just love your blog- I feel like I know you!! x


Oh Lucy thank you for sharing, you photography and commentry is just delightful. MAkes me wish I was there! Anne




I've been visiting your blog for some time now and I've come to the conclusion that I need to come along on your vacations!!!!! Your country is beautiful!!!!! Only wish I could smell the salty fresh air from here:-) Looking forward to shopping with you tomorrow.

Oh so beautiful!!! Love the idea of sitting on the beach munching through easter eggs!!!


So so lovely, thank you for the tour!I love English countryside(revisited)!AriadnefromGreece!


Wonderful Photos and it is lovely you are making family traditions just like when you were small.

Thank you very much, you always make me feel good, seeing your photographs with these vibrant colors and those beautiful landscapes. As you said the other day, I am very fortunate to be home taking care of my own and doing the things that really interest me. I am very happy to be with my family, sewing, gardening, etc., but also to stay this time alone sitting in the garden doing nothing. I like pretty things you do, I don't like to crochet but not a single day that I don't see your blog.


I'm loving your holiday, it looks just perfect.... and I need some of those Easter biscuits!
