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.

Happy belated birthday to little B !
I can't believe he is three, time has flown by!

I haven't commented before, but have been reading your amazing blog for quite a few years dear Lucy.
I just wanted to ask/say a couple of things...
The first is, do you/can you climb the hills in your attic view? I don't really remember you saying that you've looked from the hills to your attic, but I may just be forgetting!
And second, I was at a quilt fair a few weeks back, and bought some pre-loved sewing/patch magazines (like you do :) ) and lo and behold, *you* were in one of them! It was from the early nineties, and when you were making your beautiful textile pictures and such. I don't think you've changed a bit :D :D
You sure are one talented lady!!

Have a most splendid day dear Lucy, wrap up warm and take care.
Kindest regards x


Hi Lucy, and Happy Birthday to Little B! Love the photos as always, and the blanket looks so snuggly warm and lovely. I just put on a load of laundry and am settling down in my chair for some early morning crocheting. Hope your morning is good!


Happy birthday Little B! and beautiful photographs.

Christina Wall @CCKnits

Yes! i totally agree - this year is flying too fast! Where are the breaks? I'm exhausted! We had lots of snow right after Christmas and that helped the year end slowly! Perhaps we'll get some more and that will help things slow down! You're snow looks divine! Here's to crafting and slow days with our babes!


It is cold in the US as well and we have snow too. Love the blanket.


You live in a beautiful scenic place. I love the winter snow photograph of the church.


Happy Birthday Little Guy! Beautiful pictures and I agree that the change of seasons is a great thing..I love when winters are snowy and summers are sunny... Cant wait to get some snow here in VA, USA... <3 May


i love all your walks but for some reason the slow progress toward the old church with the mad noise, through the grey wuthering heights, really touched me. happy birthday, little man. happy birthday, mama.


Have been reading your blog for almost 3 years now, just wanted to say thank you for your colourful and inspirational posts! They have helped me through a tough time with pnd and got me crafting. Catx


Beautiful snow! Keep warm :-D


I feel some blanket making coming on! Looking forward to plenty of snow at the weekend - safe in the knowledge we'll be tucked up with the fire and plenty of supplies x


Hi Lucy

Lovely pictures .. blue skies and heavy frost in Worcestershire yesterday which was lovely but no snow .. like you enjoying finishing a blanket and keeping warm at the same.
I love crotchet and stumbled on your blog before Xmas and you have proved to be a true inspiration .. can now crotchet flowers, hearts, stars and join all my granny squares neatly. Becoming vey addicted .. and so many sales in local wool shops ..just has to be done


oh what a beautiful place..I just love all the pictures of your surroundings,so blissfully beautiful...
love the blanket, love all the colors..


Hi Lucy! Happy 2013! What a lovely sight-all that snow. We have to drive for hours and 4x4 up a huge mountain to get anywhere near snow in Winter. So strange always to think of people on the opposite side of the world experiencing different seasons! We are heavy in our summer still. Today being a boiling 37 degrees celcious! Enjoy your winter and coziness!

I just adore your blog. I want to move in with you!


So lovely! Snow makes even the mundane--a car park--look like something from a fairy tale. Enjoy your granny hooking and your cozy fireside! :)


Lovely snow! Though it can be wet, it can be fun to tromp around in. The chill it brings is a great excuse to sit in front of the fire and make a blanket. Love your pictures!

Your photo of the church is absolutely stunning! Such contract from your inside bright and cheery photos to the cool quiet of the outdoors.

I see the new year has started bright and cheery your way...not so much mine...FLU!(in 47 States) and if that's not enough, flooding all about.On the brightside,it could have been snow and with 6-8 inches in rain,converted to snow...well that would have been a Blizzard!
Happy Happy Birthday to L.B!Such a wonderful age :)Just finished a draft dodger snake(before the flu),inspired by yours of course :)Looking forward to the granny ta-dah.Yeah,those needy children sure can spoil a good thing ;)lol,have a good one!


I love snow and snow pictures. Oh how I agree that if I didn't have to go out I would stay snugged in for at least a day. We've had plenty of snow here in Indiana and due to having the week after Christmas off from work I did get to enjoy a day or two of nesting time. Lovely time of the year. Happy belated birthday to your sweet Little B.

Melanie @ M&M

I bought cut hyacinths and then noticed a pot on the porch was coming up! That's how warm our weather's been. I brought it in over the weekend since we are now back down in the 30's F. Beautiful pictures! No snow here. Just cold, cold rain and a little sleet and ice.


What a beautiful day ... and Happy belated Birthday to Little B x


Lucky you with the snow! I knew living on the west side was a mistake. Enjoy the season and thanks for the lovely pictures!


Oh Lucy the snow looks so pretty, can't wait to see you blanket finished xxBrenda


Beautiful snowy scenes ... can only imagine what that's like as it's shorts and t-shirts and going to the beach here at the moment!!
