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

Tomatoes+avacados+corriander (or cilantro)+lime juice = Guacamole! I *heart* guacamole!


What lovely pictures. I secretly want to run off and live in a houseboat.....

You live in a really pictureqsue little place. I'm probably not all that far from you, I love in Derby.


Hmm...I recognise those views, similar to my attic view as well :) Love living here, the canal and town is fab as you say :)

Just started up learning to crochet and found your blog from Tin Birds :)

Love all the colours you use in your work, very bright and summery :)


I'm impressed you know the "real" name of the purple bush. Here in Indiana, we just call them butterfly bushes and your little orange friend is a "skipper" :) I have two butterfly bushes at my front porch and we've been lucky with lots of monarchs and blue morphos this summer!

I love reading your happy blog! Love the pictures....I 've visited Yorkshire twice in my life, most recently last October, and it's one of my favorite places. Here in the US we have Powerball (lottery) and I asked DH if we win, can we buy a cottage in Skipton. He's all for it..crossing my fingers!


Made your Ladybird last night, it turned out really cute, thank - you for sharing. Can't wait until Yarndale, I've roped my crochet friend into coming with me.

Hi Lucy, not sure if this is the right way to get in touch but hope it's OK with you?
I belong to a little art and craft group and have been asked to demo" crochet flowers. The only patterns I can follow are yours! I will be telling everyone about your website and the Great things you do, but thought I had better ask first if this is all OK with you?
Best Wishes Cath

Hello there. I have just seem your enquiry on "j's" lovely blog about silicon bun cases. I find them brilliant but the cakes disappear just as quickly!


Great post, fantastic photos:) Greetings


Reading your blog and watching your foto's always make me feel happy! Enjoy your little people and the last days of summer holiday!


Happy pictures for a happy start of the day. Thank you for that, Lucy! Cheers, Sonja


You do indeed live in a lovely spot. Such beautiful photos today. I can imagine the chatter accompanying the Lego building, I've had a lot of chatter here over the summer holidays and it's wonderful, if sometimes nonsensical! The buddleia is great, I'm thinking of putting (squeezing!) one in here somewhere to attract butterflies. The butterfly photo is amazing - I always have such trouble taking pictures of them.


Very happy moments!
