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

Glad recovery is underway for the boys, due in no small part to the happy, colourful, caring nest you create for your family. What a lovely post.

Glad the the boys are on the mend!
I adore the Brambly Hedge books! I bought them for my daughter but I think I liked them better than she did. I even bought patterns for making the mice but haven't yet. A friend's daughter is about to have her second daughter, so I got a copy of Poppy's Babies to give her older girl. I hope I'll be able to part with it when the time comes! On our drives around England, I always imagine the hedgerows we pass are full of little villages of mice.
Thank you for your fabulous blog, I look forward to each new post.


Aren't you so lucky you're well off? Buy what you want when you want.


And what a beautiful, comfortable and sweet home you have, and how lucky your family is to have you! Tiffin is one of my favorites also! Have a wonderful weekend Lucy!


I had the Bramley Hedge pattern book to make the people: Wilfred was my favourite but I made a Poppy and ??? can't remember Dogwood as bride and groom for my brother! I loved them so much. I must get it out again for my daughter.


So glad the little ones are getting better. I agree, HOME the best pace to be.


I LOVE THIS POST! (not the part about your boys being sick of course, but the whole, "HOME" theme!) You are great, Lucy! Thank you!


Thanks for an uplifting post. Spring is still a few more months away here in Canada's capital. ;-)


went to look out the ingredients for the Tiffin but don't have digestives so ginger biscuits will have to do- I make rocky road with ginger biscuits too!


My two loved Brambley Hedge when they where little..yes very cosy stories. Poorly kids are very tiring even when they are good as gold..the worry is the energy depleting bit I think. Good for baking is all I can say , always lifts the spirits, as does your blog...which is why I visit...for a bit of cheer ( and spring!!)


My little 3 year old learnt to bake with your carrot cake recipe! It has become a firm favourite in our house now :-) hope the germs disappear soon. Loving the Brambley Hedge!


I bought my daughter the A year in Brambley Hedge box set last year and she loves them, I also added to it with 'The high hills'. For her birthday in January we got her the little grey rabbit treasury.

Dear Lucy it was a beautiful morning here in my neck of the woods and for the first time in weeks I went out into the garden soon after 8am to look at a clear blue sky (a little hint of spring!). Going back into the house it was cosy and warm. Tulips on the Kitchen window sill, clean floors and the weekend! Having run out of bread what to have for breakfast? Inspiration;
some homemade fruity mini pancakes with a sprinkling of sugar and left over lemon from pancake day with a cup of tea.
A half term week to look forward to and three rounds of a granny square blanket to complete. Have a good weekend.
PS Loved your posts on the dolly blankets! xx


Right with you on all of the above, Lucy. Brambly Hedge was always a favourite with me and my daughter when she was small. Daffs and chocolate, works every time.

It is always a worry when nippers are poorly! Glad they're better now!

I did my Home Blessing this morning and it is comforting to see the whole house sparkle! Mind you, I only did the middles of the rooms, dread to think what I'd find under my settee!!

Now for some knitting, I have 7 rows left till I can start the armhole shaping. And I've been looking at yarn online, so naughty when I have so many projects unfinished!

Your baking has made me hungry, am going to try your muffin recipe later on!


Hi Lucy

After yesterday's post where you said you didn't have anything on your hook, i've just uploaded a new pattern on my blog :-) It may tempt you ........

Spring is in the air, I can feel it.



Do you know what my overriding thought was after reading your post Lucy? Thank goodness for you! Thank goodness we can all come into your world for a moment for a colourful pick me up.

Hoping the rest of the family avoid the germs, and that you have a lovely half term!


Sorry to hear you've had such a grotty week. Spring flowers should be available on prescription, such are their therapeutic powers!!!

PS. Went straight over to Felicity's shop and bought a similar tulip mosaic tile after completely falling in love with yours. What a lovely lady she is!


Ah, that's good to hear. (me too with Brambly Hedge...love it!) xxx


Know the feeling! I'm sat eating lunch before a vase of daffodils and feeling that happy that Spring is coming...love your blog and your beautiful pics!


lovely thoughts and comments as always Lucy ... glad the boys are on the mend xx

Winter Story has always been our go to cosy story. We too have been re-visiting Brambley Hedge while recovering from winter coughs. Your entire post was like looking in a (heart) mirror.
