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

I am living way South in Bolivia at the moment. It is like popping home to the UK when I visit your site. I have a lot of time for craft here so love all the ideas, it was looking for a way to joins granny squares that I found you!!! Thanks for everything, Peta Cowan

I love your blogs. The beautiful colourful photos always bring a smile to my face. xx


I just wanted to stop by and say how much your blog has inspired me to start noticing the colourful in my own day too. Thank you!


One of the best parts of your blog is all those heart-squeezing moments you share. I hope you never stop having those moments, because that's what makes life worth living. And I hope you never stop sharing those moments, because you help us to pause and notice life in all its richness, too. Thank you.


Ooh I hope it's a crochet book. Your beautiful designs deserve to be published in all their glory!

Sorry the little one was ill. Glad B is better.
And that cake looks sooo good!!! And of course carrots are healthy.


Oh, Lucy! Your blog is simply spectacular - it's not only visually stunning, it's so beautifully written. The colours, the photos and your stories make me so happy to have found you. Your blog is appointment viewing for me. Thank you for sharing your life with us - we love it so.

Lovely pictures as usual. Can't wait to hear your news. Love your wreath and the earlier post about its formation. Look forward to reading your blog posts all the time. They really cheer me up. In fact I think I may have to have a go at making a wreath myself


I always enjoy checking in on your blog!

Dear Lucy first things first. I think I left a comment during the week about your remarkable wreath. Just in case I didn't let me say that I must make one for next year! Like you I have been enjoying the landscape. Pitch dark as I leave for work shortly before 7am (this is on a Monday so I can sit on an uncrowded bus and gather my thoughts)and a 15mins journey into the city centre the view of the newly opened library, the lights around the trees
and view of the canal were stunning. There was golden sunshine later in the day,followed for the next couple of days by howling wind, rain and hailstones
and it was dark by 4.30pm. Saturday here was frosty but that did not stop me from going out to the garden in warm cardigan&PJ's to breathe in the cold air. WINTER!!
Saturday afternoon I was hunting out my Christmas copies of Country
Living mag and thinking Christmas is just around the corner.
Look forward to your exciting news next week. Love Sarahx


Beautiful photos Lucy, I especially liked the duck in the pond of leaves. Looking forward to your news, if it's what I think it is it will make my day!!


What a lovely blog and so many images that are dear to my Northern heart, despite living in sunnier climes now. I shall enjoy following you. Axxx


Love reading your posts, they always make me feel as thou I'm sat there with you. Thank you so much. xx

Hi Lucy,

Best wishes, Jane C.

Love love love your blog!!! Delightful!!! You have taught me so much!!! I'm in Michigan- the mitten state. We had snow yesterday and it is crisp!!!!

Have a nice weekend!


Las imagenes preciosas, amo el campo, no entiendo todo, pero me quedo con la esencia, gracias por compartir.


I do like that leaf - it's saying 'look at me I'm still here!' Lovely post Lucy x Jane


You make such FAB things and the colours are amazing, thanks for sharing. And your week looked pretty colourful also.


I'm glad that you make an effort to appreciate the beauty in your life. I try to do that also. I am lucky to have a nice neighborhood to walk through, with a wooded bike trail and then acres of woods with hiking trails. We have a view of the mountain (really a hill) in our town and some days the sunrise is beautiful when we take our morning runs. It is easy to get caught up in the daily stresses, to and fro, errands, etc, but there really is so much beauty in this world. And I am a strong support of "healthy" desserts also - of course carrots make the cake good for you, just like chocolate chip banana muffins or peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies (getting that protein)!

What a wonderful colourful and inspiring blog. I was in Skipton back in June and am looking forward to popping over for the Christmas Fair/Guitar Festival in December. Your lovely photos and descriptions are making me Skiptonsick (like homesick but worse) :)
Hope your little one is much better now. I look forward to trying the banana/carrot cake too.
