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

Hi, LUCY!!! Me siento como si estuviese ahí con vosotros, qué domingo tan maravilloso!! Guarda este momento como un tesoro, amiga.
Besos y ¡¡¡a tejer!!!


My baby is only 1 yr old and I look forward to having times like this with her and her father.


Touching, even though the TV is blaring here, it was peacefully quiet while reading your post.

Thank you for the wonderful break in my loud day. :)


I feel like I got to visit the Dales... sigh


What a beautiful post..... I felt like I was right there with you, enjoying your morning of riparian entertainment!

Wow - very lovely blog!


Hi, just wanted to say congrats on your BiB nomination. I've been reading your blog for a couple of years and think it is well deserved. Are you going to the Brit Mums conference? would be lovely to meet the lady to makes such wonderful creations.


Those little yellow flowers are Colt's Foot, also known as Son Before the Father since the flowers come out before the leaves. Thank you for sharing your beautiful day.


What a delightful family experience!! I'm glad the weather held out for you. Thanks for sharing your great pictures.


Lucy, those memories will truly lodge themselves in the minds and hearts of your children. Our family spent many Sundays on little beaches beside the river Wharfe as I was growing up and I have such happy memories. Your writing and pictures have made me well up thinking about them! There's nothing quite like a Yorkshire river - the sound, the gentleness and power at the same time, the little worlds of adventure in every little corner. Ah, I miss it - for my children too I miss it. Your obvious love and enthusiasm for these places will be in your childrens' hearts too, I am sure. xx


I loved your post! Our family has made very much the same decision finding that we could potter around the house and garden and while away the weekend time, without actually having spent time doing things together. I really enjoying reading your blog.


Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth! Sing out the honor of His name; make His praise glorious. Say to God, How awesome are Your works! Through the greatness of Your power Your enemies shall submit themselves to You. All the earth shall worship You and sing praises to You; they shall sing praises to Your name. Selah Psalm 66:1-4 On this earth day let's remember the One who made it!

I find having time out with my children at the weekend is what makes work bearable, I love the weekends.

Family time is so important, I notice it more and more as children would prefer to be on the game consoles and adults glued to their phones.

It's the best thing it brings you altogether and gives you a sense of purpose together. I love telling my children stories about when I was little out exploring with my family.

These seeming 'old' or 'outdated' ways of doing things are what is needed more and more in this society.

Glad you had a great morning out, we strode out on Saturday battling the wind and soaking up the sun, it was a glorious day. xx


What a lovely family adventure! One of the joys of blogging - should your little people forget this wonderful day, they can always revisit with a scroll through your posts.


Lovely photos Lucy - I remember visiting here when we lived in Yorkshire and my own boys were small. It's lovely to have that family time together, simple pleasures and fresh air. Love Judy.


What a great resolution - to make weekend memories for you and your family.


kids + nature= contentment...love that you shared the journey with us! Love the bridge and treasure glass!


What lovely pictures from your family outing! Surprised to see the tiny unassuming yellow flowers; I thought they were native to Sweden and only growing here. "Tussilago" (Farfara)or "Colt's foot", the earliest sign of spring...

How lovely! After a really hard week in Boston, your pictures ring a smile to my face.


Thanks for such a lovely blog! I have found your crochet tutorials absolutely brilliant and your updates about your life and where you live are fab to read too. Thanks a mill :)

What a beautiful Sunday... I adore reading your posts, I grew up in Somerset, and now live in Melbourne, your blog makes me feel closer to home. Thank you.
