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

I really enjoyed reading this post. It has made me feel happy again. x


Thank you for this lovely colourful post! And congrats to your Little Man :-)
Can't wait for the housekeeping posts!

Michelle Brubacher

Thank you Lucy for your wonderful posts, which I delight in following from Melbourne, Australia. You have been a big part of my personal crochet revolution in the last 12 months. I am totally addicted to crochet and a bit of knitting on the side.....and have just started dabbling in a bit of patchwork quilting!........ and gain much inspiration from your blog. Thank you :)

Heehee, can't wait indeed.... ;-))

Love your October post - the colours, the indoorsy stuff as well as the outdoorsy bits. Wish our house had your surroundings :-).
Keep going on the ripple, we're waiting!


My little ones are now big ones, with their own homes too far away from mine but they are still always close in my heart. We also went into the closet in October for the cozy activities, bricks and crayons and scissors and paper and especially the Ed Emberley books which charmed me as much as them.
Beautiful scary fun pumpkin. Happy fall to you and all your family!


Well, housekeeping is one of my passions, so bring it on. Truly, I am excited to hear all about it. :)


I will indeed look forward to hearing from you! Congratulations to your young man.
I noticed your Tulip interest as I have just watched GARDENER'S WORLD where there was a whole garden featured just like it. (You can watch it on i-player).
It caught my "colour-eye" too!!
I am sure that reading your blog this winter will cure any blues, you and vitamin C will be my tonic.


This is my favourite kind of post. A little bit about food, decorating, crochet, kids, seasonal goings on... I am a homebody at heart so I love to hear what you're doing at home. I'm looking forward to the ripple ta-dah, as my ripple is waiting in the wings to be finished, but I need your expect example. I wish we could get that delicious cheese where we live, it looks scrumptious.

Sensational images as always. Oodles of delicious colour. I thought your cheeses were hand made soaps when I first saw them:)

Love that you have such a lovely walk to school! I have to drive to mine - too far! And all that hooky color!!! I just finished a scarf... you can see it on my page: briannaasaro.com. Have a wonderful weekend.


I love all your colourful blankets - so cosy but cheerful at the same time. If only i knew how to crochet! I love this time of year....bright skies (if we are lucky) cold walks, comfort food and warm houses...lovely. x


Love your posts, and the glimpse of your corner of the world it gives me! What is the little pink thing hanging from your bedpost? A spot for glasses maybe?

Check out these ideas for Hama beads Lucy, We've made some lovely vases less fiddly than those mats and ours used to sit on the window seal for ages waiting for me to Iron them and would then get knocked off :(


Oh Lucy, I love the sight of washing pegged out on the line, flapping gently in the breeze. It makes me feel all homely and comforted xx


That was my breakfast this morning though I ate the banana separate from the oatmeal.
Your posts are always so inviting ,chatty and newsy.
I hopped over to your flower brooch. Your post for that day gave me a chuckle. You remind me of myself when I get inspired creatively and supper and stomachs have to wait. On the really good days (like that) my Husband will finally order pizza. Otherwise it will be PB&J, cereal, "fend for yourself" with a big dollop of guilt for mom.

Oh Lucy, you make autumn look more lovely than it already is! We "fall back" this weekend and my husband is in an uproar. He's a summer fellow and hates the time change. I love crocheting blankets in colder months too! Can't keep a good hook down any time of year though. I love all your lovely pictures!
Hugs and love!


Hi Lucy,
I read your blog faithfully. But I only comment occasionally. You have so many who now comment, that I feel you can't possibly read them all, so I just look. But I do so adore your blog. Tis you, who inspired me to pick up the hook again. I only did but a stitch or two as a kid, but I loved it. I am a sewer, and quilter, but with the past five years finding me busy with looking after my grandson, I do not have the disposable time to devote to my sewing room, so I have rediscovered crochet and knitting. I have a small hand mades business that keeps me mighty busy this time of year. I loved your post on France. I loved todays post. The simplicity of life.....so, so comforting. I think you look grand! I do so love your blog!

Hello Luce
A big 11+ well done to LM :)
Your pumpkin is a work of art too!
We had a rainy Halloween here so not very many trick-or-treaters, hence the left-over skeleton chocolates which will find a home with my neighbour's two boys.
It's chilly but sunny here today so my spotty hotty which emerged from its hiding place last night will be in use again later :)
I wonder if any other species of bird have flown out of the attic yet? I hope we'll catch a glimpse of them when they do.
I think I can feel a bit of hooky coming on here this afternoon......


Hi Lucy, such a perfectly seasonal ,colourful, cheerful post. I often feel like climbing into your photos.
It goes without saying how THRILLED I was to learn we both love I capture the castle :0) and you summed up what I love about it perfectly.
Thank you for the recommendation for further reading. Sounds perfect for next years hols ( probably Cornwall ) if I can wait that long.

thank you for the lovely update Lucy! It's great to have you back in the Attic after your FABULOUS Provence trip. (drool. swoon. want.)I figured you would need a vacation from your "vacation" but here you are... typing & updating away! Pictures & descriptions are marvelous. You are appreciated & enjoyed every day by a Hooker in Kansas, USA!!


Have been following your site for some time now but first post here, so hello from central North Carolina USA!!! Love how your colorful pics and thoughts somehow seem to niggle back thru my mind even days/weeks/months later and something will make me say - oh that reminds me of Lucy. Patiently waiting for the ta-da on the ripple and the granny square blankies but also wondering what you were doing with the little knitted squares that you teased us with over a month ago as that is the first I remember you ever mentioning you knitted something. Can we have a reveal on that soon too -- so much to do and so little time :)


You've got some very pretty fall colors all around you. I love you how say that you can legitimately go back to childish things again :) I agree! Sometimes being a "grown-up" is all too serious. I also like your pumpkin! It looks remarkably like Jack Skeleton from The Nightmare Before Christmas. I have to ask if that was intentional. Very well done!


My 8 yr old loved all your photos for this post - she loves your bird in the hoop from your Provence visit. We talked about it on our walk to school this morning when we should have been doing the 8x table!!

Your house is like ours -- with each step you take, you are at risk for stepping on yarn, Legos, or Perler Beads!


There's little that could be better than a month of cheese. Truly.
