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 love Winter Solstice......reread it each winter as a reminder of the warmth displayed in it's story of people at loose ends coming together to nurture each other. Hope you will join me in a reread during the Winter Solstice this year.......Love your blog it is like revisiting one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen.


Do you do that often? It seems very cosy to me. Something I would like too. Just with a few friends around the table. With some snacks and drinks and have a cozy chat.


Love weekends although with summer break coming up, I'm looking forward to a sleep in every once in a while.

I like to add blueberries to an oatmeal cookie recipe along with chopped walnuts. Yummy!

Looks like you all had a great weekend.


¡Sniff! ¿Por qué no salió mi comentario?
Sólo te ponía dos enlaces de la ilustradora que buscabas y te decía que Rosamunde me encanta así como Robin Pilcher. Y siempre estoy esperando nuevo libro


Love the photos Lucy, and the family atmosphere that you conjure up with your chatty narrative... there is a website much closer to home that has a similar feeling to the picture you asked about.. http://www.thesingingtree.biz/ - all kinds of everything there and a blogging style and creativity that matches your own. Not my blog, by the way; hope it is okay to post the link, Helen is worth a look if you have five minutes.

This is Mother's Day in USA today. And though you don't personally know me, I feel like I know you through the wonderful sharing of your life with us. And I want to wish you a Happy Mother's Day today. May God Bless You and your family, today and every day. You are an inspiration.

I love Friday's. They mean no more sleeps to the weekend. I can come home from work, put my feet up and not clock watch for 'bed times'! I know that next Friday evening I'll be baking cookies now. Take care. Chel x

My bag from Yarndale was waiting for me when I got home! It is so cute love the sheep. It will be very useful. It was very icily wrapped on tissue paper on the parcel as well.

I am going to start on some of your squares or circles today with my pretty new Stylecraft yarn.


Just read your choc chip cookie recipe - I use syrup in my cookies too! I use Canadian maple syrup and add oatmeal, because I LOVE a good oatmeal choc chip cookie! I will have to try putting blueberries in next time. Sounds lovely.

I had to tell you that Winter Solstice is one of my favourite books. I read it twice a year, once at Christmas, and again in the depths of a New Zealand winter around July. Actually that sounds odd now I've written it, but it's a wonderful book.


Enjoy your weekend of crochet and family, Lucy. The weather has been unpredictable here too...that's an english spring I guess! I do like the sound of your Friday 4pm get togethers, I must say! xx

Hi There, It's going to be a fabulous,world-y and yarn-y weekend!!!So many of us(all my bloggy friends)have the same yarn-y plans for this weekend!!!Have fun with your yarns and can't wait to see all the posts next week!!! Have a fab-by yarn-y weekend!!!


Carolyn Gavin is just up your street! (So to speak)


Oh deliciousness. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.


Oh Friday at 4pm - computer shut down, coat on and head out of work. I'm so lucky to live so close to where I work. In through the door, change out of stuffy work clothes, pick up needle/hook/glue/fabric/etc. let my real life begin. Last night it was the sewing machine.

Love your blog.

Fridays are the best day and yes the beginning of the weekend for sure.....
Thinking about your inability to acquire the Happy weekend piece: just a thought...... print out the piece you posted to your blog and frame it!
I know your disappointment - I tried to acquire I Ken Eardley piece and while I was able to find a source in the UK to ship here to the States: by the time postage and insurance were added on well: it seemed a wee to extravagant for buy for myself for no occasion..... Thought I'd print out a copy and pin to my inspiration board though because looking at it gives me that much pleasure! Have a great weekend with the Girlies and your yarny goodness!


Happy Friday! I recently found your website, and I absolutely love it! Your hooky projects are inspiring, and I intend to spend some time this evening working on my own projects. Thanks for sharing your creativity! Lori

Danielle Kristine

I absolutely love your site! And your color choices are amazing! If I'm need of inspiration I come here. Amazing work :)


Oh, thanks for the link - I have been trying to find the source of that print too. I spotted it a while ago and couldn't work out where it came from. Hope you have a good weekend. juliex


Nothing like a bottle of Prosecco to put you in the Friday mood! Have a very Happy weekend :O)xx

I too am already in week-end mode and it's only 10:00 a.m. Will have to make those cookies later, I love blueberries. I LOVED Winter Solstice when I read it years ago. Sorry your weather has gone back to yuk. Am looking forward to seeing what you get up to with your hooking ideas. Also anxiously awaiting news of your remodeling plans. Happy week-end.


Yes, Friday is the start of the weeekend!!! Have fun hooking around. Can't wait to see what you come up with!


Working shifts weekends are precious when I get them off. Tomorrow 6.30am is 'Monday' morning for me but having a cosy 'Sunday' night in catching up on the tv and finishing a cardigan I am knitting for a 2 year olds birthday pressie.

Enjoy your weekend.x
