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.

Thank you so much, Lucy!
I love, love, love them!
At the moment we live in the southern part of Texas and I am so missing the changes of the seasons. You gave me some snow fun with your pictures and now the start of spring. The most beautiful time of the year!
I'm going to try and buy you a coffee again but when I tried that before, it would not work.. Maybe you could explain how people without blog themseves can become a follower and buy you a coffee?

I love reading you! You have the power to put us in somewhere that we don´t know, but we love! God bless you and your family!

Oooh Betty

I want to crawl into that little tent of crochet (I could squeeze in). Read the Happy Home book with a cup of tea in your lovely mug....if you don't mind :)
Bit of a late comment, having a catch up. X

I love everything in this post, but I especially love the adorable crochet bird sitting on the Cath Kidston tins!


Have just found your blog and read it from start to finish. Such inspiration. Have to confess to working on the blooming flower cushion for my new chair, seems to be taking forever.

Love the daffodil...appeals to my Welsh roots!

I miss your "wonderful colorful world" when you are away! I LOve your stories you share and the lovely pictures, Thank you... I love the daffodil.... most beautiful I have seen.... Can't wait to see the wreath!! Hoping you post the pattern for "Little Miss Daffy" :) xxx Patti


I follow your blog regularly. I am having my 1st giveaway on my blog if you would like to check it out. I am giving away a couple of crochet books that you might like!


I love Whitby, have a great time, the youth hostel also has an amazing little cafe that I highly recommend :)


Love the daffodil. Glad your boys are feeling better


Just a quick comment to say thanks so much for your lovely comment on my little fledgling blog. So nice of you to take the time - you get so many comments! xxx


Beautiful daffodil - I think an Easter wreath is a wonderful idea, hope you get started on it soon!


Just been on a little break to Skipton and saw your sheep! Was very excited. Just have to persuade the other half that another visit, in September,would be good (no mention of a certain exciting event!)


I'm a regular reader of your blog Lucy, just wanted to comment this time because I feel I ought to - I've been so inspired by your gorgeous Crochet wreath and have loved having a go myself. I owe you a debt for the inspiration and wanted to say THANKS!!!
It all looks and sounds very thrilling in the Attic...look forward to hearing LOTS more about this studio!


I love reading your blog, but I have never commented before, until I saw the last item on this post - my mum and my little sister have just spent a few days in that exact youth hostel, and came back and made me green with envy with their descriptions. I hope you all have as much of a wonderful time time there as they did! x


Hola! Everything look very nice indeed....

Saludos x

Living in Australia now but come from Yorkshire. You photo of the boats on the canal brought back instant memories of my last trip when I stayed with friends in Ripon on their houseboat. We took a short trip and I really loved seeing first hand how the locks worked. I am going to have to be a regular visitor to your blog. I have a soft spot for Harrogate, York, Scarborough and places in-between.


A lovely post. And also a thank you for a lovely day - my daughter and I were staying at Haworth and made a detour to Saltaire, which I remembered from your post. Thank you for a wonderful recommendation!

I've been making winter stars (from your pattern) and would love a daffodil pattern! Thank you for sharing!

I did a double-take when I saw your second picture, the one of the river. I used to live in March in Cambridgeshire, and the view from the Town Bridge was almost identical to your picture, although March did not have a tall chimney in the background, and there was no lawn on the right hand side.
I must look out some photos and scan them in to my computer (old style pics!) so you can see.


I love the naughty hooky daffodil!


lovely pics!


Carole Williamson

Hi Lucy,
Fab blog as ever. I love the daffodil so so much. Can you tell me where you got the pattern from? I'll tell you why I'm asking! My friend works in a residential care home as an activities co-ordinator & is doing an Easter display on a display board. I have done some of your teeny tiny flowers in spring colours & I'm doing some crocheted chicks; but I would love to do a few daffodils as a surprise.
I expect you will read this when you return from Whitby, so hope you had a good time.
Love from Carole from Rossendale xxxx


have just discovered your wonderful blog- love it! am inspired to do so many things- have been to my local wool shop and the owner is going to order me some of the gorgeous colours you use. Hope you enjoyed Whitby, I live near there and visited on Monday- it was so pretty

Ohhh, a new Mollie magazine! Mollie Makes is a favorite of mine! I get it on Kindle Fire. I'll have to look and see if this new one is available for the kindle! I love your blog, love to see pictures of your adorable "attic" and your adventures in your country! I actually found your blog a couple of years ago while searching for a pattern for crochet flowers. Though for some reason I only recently started to follow you! So much easier having you show up in my Google Reader! Thanks for sharing a piece of your life with us! A happy reader from across the pond, Las Vegas, NV :)
