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

Love love love it all. especially the reflections on canal, woodland beauty, the garden shed, firelight. It all brings joy to my heart and I thank you . blessings, Trills aka, trillspatch.blogspot.

Yes! In and out we go - my out these days is more wintery but still! I am going to make squash risotto for the evening meal! I make mine slightly differently than you - cubing the squash and cooking it in the pan that I make the risotto in - seems to come out the same - all golden little nuggets in the yummy tender rice! Yay risotto - my favorite thing to cook. Been watching tonnes of youtubes of some Italian cook called Genno I think! He is heaven - on Jamie Oliver's site - says Funntastic! all the time.


The last picture reminds me of Tyne and Wear... How I miss it...


Living in your house must be like living in a rainbow. So many pretty, bright colors. I must admit you have been the reason I have changed some of my decorating. I use to like darker colors, but now I go for the brights.

Hi Lucy, my name's Sarah and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I just wanted to say that I really love your blog. Your photographs are divine - amazing colours and I wish I could walk where you do! Lucky-duck! I especially loved reading your Canterbury entry. I lived in the UK for 8 months in 94-95 and I remember my trip to Canterbury with real affection. It WAS a beautiful place. You took me back there. Thank you. I really look forward to future posts.


So beautiful!! :)

Anne Marie

Yes, beautiful colours, lovely extremes. Loving the reflections on the canal too. You're in such a picturesque part of the country.

I was trying to find the pictures of your Frittata, was looking at it the other day and even that had lovely bright colours. I wanted to make it and couldn't find the post. I did find the Risotto.


I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos


Really lovely post, thanks! :)

Lucy, you do make smiles appear around the world with your lovely photos and wise words. Thank you very much.


lovely post ... at the ripe old age of 60 YOU have enriched my world with colour :-) xx love Joy xx



I love reading your blog, not only is it full of lovely yarn and fantastic crochet but also I find it such an inspiration to read about your little world and really enjoy your great photos which make me sit back and revel in all the loveliness around and notice all the little things that make you smile. Thanks for such an uplifting read. Jo xx


the little fox and other softies on your workshop page--are those from Alicia Paulson? love the photos from the wreath workshop--inspiring color choices.


Simply gorgeous! Enough said...

Winwick Mum

Lovely photos! Autumn is such a colourful time of year, isn't it, and yet it's often so wet and windy that we miss a lot of it. Hooray for crisp autumn days! xx


I love the autumn.The colour and the c rispness is invigorating. I married in the autumn and all my children were born in the autumn. I enjoyed the glimpse of your dining table. Our dining table, like yours, is a working table. My husband painted on it before he had a studio and it bears the scars of that, and now my little ones create their own works of art on top of it. Coloured pencils are a regular at breakfast time in our house too.


I love your posts - they are always so colourful and inspiring. I also love those cookies, made them lots of times and they turn out a treat always.
