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

I have just enjoyed seeing April again through your eyes...colourful and so homely!

Great post Lucy...I love the way that you are building the memories for your children with this blog..they will have a wonderful resource there forever to refer back to regarding their childhood :) how many kids can say that:-) your little seedlings do indeed seem to be doing well...fingers crossed we get a bit of warmer weather now to help them grow their little legs :-) Nikki

I agree - it has been a funny April and I'm left feeling like I need cake..... carrot cake with thick cream cheese icing sounds perfect and happens to be my all time favourite too :)
I looking forward to hearing about the new bag.... your round cushion looks, as always, fantastic!


Such a great reminder of all the months and years you'll have thanks to this blog! Your children will love this when they're older. Little ones grow so fast! Does your little lady still love knitting? :)

My little girl is also eight and had a sleepover to celebrate it. Chaos!! O but so much fun!Can know the scary feeling seeing them growing up so fast.

Gosh I can just imagine Little Lady's delight at her new desk - it may have been .....erm........several decades ago (note heavy understatement!) but I can STILL remember getting a brand new WHITEWOOD -remember that? desk for my bedroom, must have been about10. I asked for it to be painted lemon and lilac - can't imaging why, now, but I loved it!

One of those attic-views shows such a beautiful water-colour sky, it's as if someone has just painted it; amazing how many different feelings you evoke with each shot, year after year, no two the same.

And despite the awful month,weatherwise, you've given us a heap of colour yest again!


Hi lucy! I've been reading your blog for a while now and never leave a comment but now's the time! I love everything about it! Please keep posting your lovely pictures and homely creative stories. You have inspired me to start making things again, it's great! xx


You have this innate ability to make even the most dreary days bright!!! Thanks for letting us in on your world. Can't wait to see your ripple blanket when you are done, makes me realize that I better get back to work on mine!!!
