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.

Hello, love reading your blog came upon your site from Pinterest. I came from the Northeast of England and am now in Ontario Canada. I grew up in Whitley Bay. Loved the pic of Craster remember the kippers and the smell as you came up to the village. Happy memories. Thanks for an entertaining evening. Jackie

I hadn't visited your site in a long while. I couldn't remember the name, and I hadn't bookmarked it. I'm very happy I found it again. What a treat it is! The visuals and stories could keep me here all day. Beautiful photos and entertaining stories. Someday I'll visit England, and I know where I want to start :)

Hello Lucy, My name is Carrie Bathurst. I would like to subscribe and have been trying for two days. The subscribe button isn't working. Will you please do it for me on your end?

Thank you!


Your photographs focus in on such beautiful colors. Hope that you will do a post in the future about how you choose color schemes for your crochet projects.


Hi Lucy,
Lovely to see you back. The photos are breathtaking, just lovely.
Love Carole from Rossendale xxx

Welcome home Lucy. Your photography is amazing. I missed your blog this past week, x


Hi Lucy, I love your blog. Presently, trying to make a baby ripple blanket. If you have time, would you write about how you block a big blanket like the ripple pattern one?
Thanks for your time. I know you are very busy. Sorry, if I bother you.


Such lovely photos... Don't you just hate the first few days of return to normal? All the clean-up and grumpiness.


We missed you, Luce! I had grand visions of bumping into you round Bridders on Saturday. We came back today but I do miss my kittys when I'm away. That's the only thing with holidays: having to leave them. A few days and you'll soon be back in the swing of things.

Lovely to have you back. So glad you had a lovely time and good weather.


Hi Sweet Lucy, So happy you had a wonderful and beautiful holiday. It looks so relaxing and perfect, the weather really helps so much to put you in that holiday mood. Just a note: I always read your blog, just so you know, but I don't always comment, you are still one of my all time favorites and first!!


Great pictures!! I also love the pebble one with your hooky goodness in the background. Glad you had good weather!


Glad you had a good time away. I love reading your blog. You have given me so much crochet inspiration! I got back into crocheting a few years ago after seeing your blog. Thanks.


Beautiful photos as always, especially the cricket one, I love crickets :o)


Hi Lucy, Welcome back. I am pleased you all had a lovely time. Can't wait to see your catch up posts this week!!

Hi Lucy glad that you had a good time, but I’m also glad that you are back home, I missed reading your blog. I look forward to all your news, and your creations. I collected some sea glass myself last week, but it was on a cool windy day, I hope we get some more warm days before the summer is over.


The weather makes such a difference and last week was particularly good. Our visit to Lyme Regis in June was very wet, but we enjoyed the area. Do a little bit at a time and if you can get the holiday washing dried and put away that will make you feel better.


Hi Lucy, thought I'd let you know that this winter (southern hemisphere!)I have now completed both a blooming flower cushion (for my niece) and a ripple pattern cushion cover (for my Mum)! I've got pictures of them on my blog. Thanks for your great patterns and inspiration!


The rocks and the sea glass are very interesting. What comes first, the snail or the hole in the rock? We don't get sea glass on the beaches where I live.


Welcome home Lucy! Hope you feel better about being home soon. I think those rocks with the little pebbles stuck in them are really pretty (as is the sea glass) - did you bring them home with you?

Hi Lucy, Great to read about the next 'chapter' in "The Life of Lucy". Missed your cheery chats last week, but glad you had a lovely week beside the seaside! Post holiday blues - yes can relate to that too. Aah well! things will get back to 'normal' soon enough. Enjoy the memories. Love your photos, you certainly have the knack of capturing the moment. Love Bev from Denmark Western Australia

Welcome home - the photos were beautiful! :O)
