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

"Dry Bones", and pointed to the bones in our body as we sang. My students remembered way more from that one song then they would have if I just kept repeating the bones to them. Music can be such a wonderful thing to stimulate learning as well as get the students moving in the classroom. I plan on using it a lot in my own classroom.

Welcome Lucy!Glad to see you posting again! So happy that you've gain a lot of blogging knowledge on the few weeks/months of rest. Anyway, as I was always saying, I love the content of your blog. I can't help my self from commenting on your post! You really inspire me a lot! Keep it up.


So glad you are back!! I've been checking almost daily, hoping to hop on your posts and float off to another land :) Everyone needs a break though, although it seems you've been busy on yours! So very glad to have got caught up on your posts. They just make me so happy! :)


I am a bit late to this post, but yes, be happy for the seasons, I live where it is warm most of the year, but after 10 years I SO miss 4 seasons - we only have two - warm and not so warm - no bare trees, no spring blossoms, I really do miss them and, unbelievably, the cold, in fact I make a trip south each year to experience it! Never thought I,d resent summer, but too much of a good thing...!

How very nice to see you back and to be able to share your joys again, your blog is such a morale booster with lovely pictures and colours. I'm so glad to hear you are well and enjoying life.
And September is going to be a joyful month for me in future because I now have a week old granddaughter for whom I have been busy making various crochet goodies, including several blankets, at least partly inspired by your wonderful colourful lovelies. My first grandchild, I had forgotten the feel and smell of that precious tiny head!


here in Albany, South Western Australia - glad you are online again, we are in Spring, putting away the winter clothes and looking to Summer, it's nice to contrast tbe seasons with yours, being so far away but feeling a connection with someone on the other side of the world - united by crochet!


Lovely post! You inspired me to get me going with my craft/DIY projects at home! Take care x


Ooooh, looking forward to hearing about this new project of yours. Nice to see you back, Lucy!

So glad to see that you are back!!! You've made my day!


So glad you're back! Missed reading about your daily adventures. I feel exactly the same way about September as you - perhaps school going back in has something to do with it and it not REALLY being fall yet?!? Our weather (Vancouver Island) is still fairly mild, but change is definitely in the air with cooler days. Take care! Mary


Dear Lucy, I have become an 'addict' reading your lovely attic blog, which has inspired me to start my own ripple blanket this summer, and I have been waiting and kept checking to see if there is a new post this September. I am very glad that you are back and looking forward to starting the new wonderful Autumn season.


Hi Lucy, welcome back. You and your colorful world were missed.

I need to add an S.O.S. to my long winded post previously Lucy.PLLEEEEAAAASSSSEEEE can you explain to me how to join multicoloured squares so the yarn used to join doesn't show through? I am totally bamboozled so desperately need your advice if you don't mind.The more I learn the more confident I hope to become as I am rather lacking that way :s

Looking forward to your next news & chat.Better than any magazine Lol.My 2 sons are now grown up & I am an empty nester but Oh how I would have loved to be a fulltime Mum like you.I love your tales of family life & home making.Very hard work but the best job in the world!! Time just flies by way too fast as they are growing though sadly.Keep up the great work Helen xxhugxx


It's good to see you and your lovely cheerful photos back with us. Welcome home to the Attic.


Oh, you are a tease! A new venture. What could it be? You were dreaming and plotting and planning a few years ago (BLB: Before Little B.), and now you seem to be back up to something. Okay, I'm waiting for the big news!
And in the meantime, may I say that I missed you and you've not disappointed with a very colorful re-entry post!

Mrs Pearce

Hurrah! At last, you are back :-) glad that all is well in your world x


It's good to have you back!

Vikki Cook

Woop woop! You're back! While you've been gone I've realised how much I'd come to rely on spending a few minutes in the attic with you to cheer up my week... My spirits lifted at the sight of a new post. Glad you've had a good and productive break ... Looking forward to much hookiness on cosy winter evenings to come! :-)


Hi Lucy, I am with your other "online" friends - I just about cried with joy to see a new heading on your blog. I was so happy to see you back here with all of us again.
I sure do appreciate and thank you for sharing your little piece of the world with all of us.
With joy, Loretta
