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

at the link, there's a terrific looking spiral granny circle--have you ever done one? if so, could you do a tutorial???

Silly Little Sheep

That sofa and that fireplace, wow, such a nice combination of warmth, joy and colours... :)


i lov u u full of life


Isn't it funny how you look at other people's home in magazines and we just want to have a look at yours! I always love Autumn for its cosiness. I like to be able to close the curtains and shut the world out and snuggle up under a blanket in front of the fire. Just heaven! xx


I once met an elderly Cocker Spaniel some years ago, and her name was Cozy. She was adorable.

I am so pleased you are liking your new hottie! Have a good half term and think of me back at school next week!

I love the look of your blankety sofa. One day, I want mine to look like that!

Roberta Bortoluzzi

Oi amiga, adorei todas as novidades do teu blog, também trago novidades no meu blog para ti contar, confira e depois deixe um comentário para eu poder saber o que achastes,abraços do Brasil.


I was just telling my husband the other day that cozy is my favorite word! I'm so glad there are other people out there like me. I love being home, too. There's no place better.


You will have plenty of time for a tidy, neat home in the coming years...for now, enjoy your happy cozy home with all the lovely clutter and mess children seem to make. When our kids and grands visit and my house seems to blow up...I call it a happy mess, and just enjoy it. Peace, quiet and tidiness in just around the corner when they all go home. And that feels good too!

Sue Harding

I'm not one for Ms Kidston (done to death as far as I'm concerned)but I do love the homely feel all your pics seem to have! Well done, you, for carving our some quiet 'me' time with a house to run and little people to care for - mine have flown the coop but I still feel guilty for spending too much time knitting......
(although I suppose it gets a bit extreme when I have a ball of wool in my apron pocket and needles tucked under my arm as I stand by the stove cooking dinner....another row done as I wait for the potatoes to boil....!)



I always enjoy reading your blog, Lucy. Very cozy home indeed. I thought you might enjoy looking at a post on KP. Be sure to look through all 18 pages of this post, because there are some amazing pictures. Give you any ideas? After your bunting episode, you probably need a breather. I know you'll enjoy looking, though:


Hugs, Kimmy

P.S. I think I see some KNITTING on your sofa!


What a wonderful home. Cozy is what a home should be. Love all the wonderful colors in all of your crochet.

One more word about hot water bottles, they are here in the US as well, my Grandmother always used one. back then there was one in every house. Then came electric heating pads and then the gel filled hot/cold packs.

Carole Williamson

I've really enjoyed your last two posts Lucy, well I enjoy all of them as you well know. They have been warm and cosy posts. I'm going to have a go at making a 'Patchwork Heart' hot water bottle cover. Looking forward to seeing your Autumn wreath.
Take care Lucy

Your home looks so cozy and bright and cheerful, I don't see how anyone could not love living there. You inspire me in my decorating.


I love your cosy home. And I love mine. So many people, these days, live in houses that are far too big for them. They completely miss out on the joys of a small, cosy home.


"Those shelves"- they were the project the day I first happened on your blog- what a journey you have been on over these years and what joy and encouragement you have brought your readers! Well done on such a succesful Yarndale- you deserve all the praise you have received for all the effort you made- no wonder the shelves have been misbehaving when your back was turned- they can wait!!


Dear Lucy,I have been following you for about two months..Your colourful home make me feel cosy,too. Autumn!! I like Autumn very much..The colour of the leaves brown,yellow,red..Like your soft yarns..The smelling of your lemon cake.. Your coffee....Your crochet blankets and cushions,magazines...The fire which has to be in this time of the year.... vanilla scented candle..You really have 'a living house'..This shows you are a good mother and a wife..Nevermind untidiness..I am sure, you feel happy in your cosy home!!!!!
With love from Istanbul,Turkey

My sentiments exactly. Love home and especially at this time of year. Some really beautiful images xo

Jo Navin

I also wanted to say congratulations on your best blog award! Well done and well deserved! X


Shabiness? Untidiness? Not the words I would use to describe the wonderful environment you have created in your home. Just a few of the words I would use to describe your home:artistic, warm, eclectic, fun, cozy, homey, earthy, beautiful. A real sense of goodness and family comes through all your pictures.

Jo Navin

Children don't remember a little bit of untidy or unpolished but cosy they do remember! I was reading that mag yesterday, wonderful colour and I thought Catriona Hall's animal paintings were fab. I'm pretty sure most of us have a shelf like that :-) Jo xx
