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

Wow Lucy, you certainly live in a beautiful place, looking at your pics might even tempt me to get up early some morning for a stroll round my neighbourhood...too many late nights crocheting do not make for early starts I'm afraid!!!!


One of my friends recommended your blog and I'm so glad she did! This post reminds me of the years I lived in Burnley - I used to like walking along the canal too :)

Can we please swap homes/houses/lives for just one day? ONE day - promise. You enjoy the sunshine and beaches and blue skies of Perth and I'll enjoy the greenery, charm, cosiness and history of Yorkshire. Pretty please!


Just wanted to wish you a very Happy Mother's Day. In Canada it is today May 12th.

I have wonderful memories of a longboat trip in England a while ago, your lovely photos brought back lovely memories for me.

What a gift to be able to walk your little one to and from school/ playgroup...no cars allowed!I love where you live and always enjoy your photos as much as your lovely crochet work. I'm gushing, but yours is one of my favorite blogs to turn to whenever I need a pick-me-up! Thanks!

You always brighten my days! Here in the southeastern US spring is in full swing! But the weather won't cooperate! It's 80 one day and 50 the next. I am longing for regular warm weather and summer fun! Best wishes to you as always,


En que lugar tan hermoso que vives!!!!


knew the waterways festival was on and hoped you would post photos...I WILL make it one year!

Have a happy hooky weekend xx

Absolutely beautiful. Thank you for posting. The boats are truly wondrous, as are the old buildings, bridges, and countryside.

Ha! That 'Back'o' the Bec' shot is where my daughter used to live! :-)

Lucy, I love where you live! Your photos are so delightful.


I want to come and live there! (Or somewhere similar...) I must learn to open my eyes more to the beauty around me.


I feel transported after viewing your photos. What a wonderful world for a child to grow up in. Who lives on those boats? Are they vacationers or can they be lived in year round? Are they dry docked somewhere during the winter? I think making up stories about the boat people would be great fun with the kids. I used to lay in bed with my kids and make up all sorts of stories. At the end of the day I was very tired, so I could lie there with my eyes shut and spin tales. As grown ups now they treasure those stories.


You are so lucky to be able to stay in such a place which seems to be quite and peaceful.
I always wanted to stay somewhere quite and relaxed although my hometown or native place is just that, I am born and bought up in a city which is a proper city .. with crowd , pollution, and best of facilities which offcourse come at a price.
You can read about my city Mumbai in India on the net and you will get the picture..
How I love to browse through your pictures and imagine myself walking alongside the canal..
To have a cup of coffee in small local cafe with a book.. Humm ...But I think I can only imagine that ..

SO special indeed that via your sharing it makes each day I get to read your blog about your magical corner of the world that I too feel my days enriched and a bit more special for having that the privilege to share in it!!! THANX!


You live in such a beautiful place!!


Obviously, the place where you live and the photos you are able to take are so beautiful. But I feel it is the way you perceive everything around you -and therefore the way you make us perceive it- what makes it glorious. Please, carry on!!!


Lovely photos, thanks for sharing your walk with us.
I tried taking my own photos as I went through my day recently (sunshine in the garden, a mug of coffee on a crocheted coaster etc) and it really made me appreciate the small simple everyday pleasures that I normally overlook. Reading your blog inspires me to be content and happy with my life - thank you!


You can buy the cycling parrot in Lidl! I wanted to buy one for my garden but hubby wouldn't let me :( (I have too many windmills already (apparently!)) x

I really envy you Lucy! I am in absolute love with canal boats and dream of one day owning one. You certainly have a wonderful walk around your neck of the woods. Take care. Chel x


congratulations for your blog!I've been following it for a short time and I think it's amazing! I like your photos and your craft! you're great and I'm very fond of England and you are able to show us its deep soul! greetings from Italy


What a lovely wander x

Made me smile to see the buckby can with Elland painted on it as that's where I live. Aren't small Yorkshire towns wonderful places to live :-)
