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

Love the photos from the attic! The one after the rain is so clear and lovely!
Have a wonderful May!

Hi Lucy,
It wasn't better here in Holland, just rain, rain,rain!But I love the way you write about it :-)
Happy Birthday to your Little Lady!


We've had the same sort of weather here. (Pacific Northwest-Oregon-USA.) I agree with your sentiments and love your spirit!
Your mosaics are beautiful and you have a lovely way with words...It reminds me of a poster I saw (I think on pinterest); that said "if I had a British accent, I would never shut up!" You use such delightful, descriptive phrases. Thank you!


Hi Lucy, There's nothing I like better during my early morning "me time" than popping on to my own blog and seeing that Attic 24 has been updated. It cheers me up no end to read about your family and fun before I set off to work. Thank you!

Your sister city must be here as we're having similar rainy cold and grey days too. But the oddest thing is we have been having fairly nice weekends 4 in a row. Shock. I did a post on our Camas Lilies here, did you pop over and see? *H*A*P*P*Y* * *B*I*R*T*H*D*A*Y*!*!*!* to Little Lady!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


we really ARE on the same latitude! And I do adore the beautiful colors in your yarn...


April showers indeed - but look at all the lovely things that you did during that time. I really enjoyed your April wrap up (and speaking of wrap - I think the bubble wrap around your passion flower is a splendid idea!). Enjoy your moments of hookey - I look forward to seeing the ripples all done! :)


I saw this was one of your monthly "wrap-ups" and I had to go grab my pint of ice cream and a spoon. Make sure the kids are asleep . Curl up in my favorite spot... ok i'm ready.
Oh so worth it.
i hope your May is sunnier and colorful.
Thanks for my few minutes of bliss and a window into your month!


Happy birthday little lady! It does go sooo quickly, seems like only yesterday my baby girl was turning 8, she turns 17 this year! The passion flower looks great, I am also planting one in a few months, when our warmer weather is due, have just planted raspberries and thornless blackberry and have a blueberry waiting patiently xxBrenda


Happy Birthday to your Little Lady. The Special One is 4 this month. Love your circles, they are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. Cheers SpecialK XoXo


thank you for sharing this "April moment" : so nice!

Hi again Lucy. Just forgot to tell you my son has arrived home after his holiday in London and he got my Button Jug!! It been to Paris, Venice and Rome and is now living happily in Oz. Its gorgeous and already filled with flowers.. Dont you just love pretty jugs!! ?Thanks so much for locating it for me! :) xx Julie


Hello! I've just discovered your blog (i'm very late when it comes to this sort of thing!) and just wanted to say how fab it is. Love all the colour - a tonic after this rubbish weather. Thank you!

Julie Earle

Hi Lucy. We have lots in common! Hate grey days, worship sunshine and flowers, love to create and adore cake! If you get a chance can you tell me how you make your photo mosiacs..? Happy Birthday to your Little Lady! My Little Ladies are grown up ladies now and my best friends. :) love from Julie in Oz xx

I agree, April is indeed a wet and cold month. But as long as you have a warm and cozy home, it doesn't matter since cold days are good times to stay home and read a book with a little something warm to eat or drink.


I LOVE everything about your blog,really cheers me up.xx


I love the first picture in particular...and your cushions. Working with fabric is my first love...I have only just started to crochet. Maybe we could swap tips as I really find some of the stitches really hard.
Thank you for brightening up a really gloomy month. xxx


That reminds me, really, really MUST get my seeds planted!
I think the Spring colours of the trees this year are quite the best I've ever seen- wet, but glorious.

The weather has been totally crazy this month for sure. I love that very first photo. :)

Maggie Cawthorn

Agree completely about the colours and your photo-collages are just right to cheer you up. Despite the weather in Cumbria this month it has been a month of the most amazing colour - but why does the wind come to blow the blossom away so quickly? Loving also the Dorset light.


Lovely post. Made me smile thinking of April back in Blighty. I was chatting to my mum on the phone this morning and told her to hold tight... I think you'll be in for a hot summer come July. The past few years have seen a warm spring and dreary summer, so lets hope this year it is the other way around for you! But what do I know? I'm a housewife not a weather women! Lx


another lovely post from the attic, have a lovely may
happy wednesday


Lovely pics Lucy! I am trying hard to remember what it was like before the rain came... although dry but grey today here in Dorset.


What a lovely review of your month. We had a birthday yesterday too - our eldest son is now 24! He arrived home, a day late and his eyes still lit up at the sight of his birthday cake and bundle of new clothes & super sized chocolate bar! Thank goodness he's grown out of sleepovers! Let's hope May brings some lovely sunshine - it tried yesterday afternoon and it was wonderful to sit out with my Ripple - it's pouring again now though - and cold. Definitely the answer, is more cake!


Love your blog Lucy and the pictures are gorgeous, glad little lady had a lovely 8th birthday, my babies are 25 and 20 now, how I wish I could revisit some of the lovely childhood times and I envy you your lovely blog diary to look back on. Finished one granny ripple with you're colour pack and am now in the second so that both if my caravan seats has one. Can't wait to see the bag x
