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

Thank you for another lovely post. Beautiful pictures & inspiring as always. Hope Little B is fully recovered now. Banana & carrot cake looks amazing!! Looking forward to hearing your exciting news too! Will pop back tomorrow. :) Claire xx


I really enjoyed reading your post and loved your photos. We too have had some very dreary and dark days this past week, so your post was a tonic of cheerfulness and brightness!


Love your blog, Lucy ... have learned so many crochet skills from it recently. Brilliant photos ... What a beautiful record of your week. Have just started blog of my own having become obsessed with crocheted stones. Think I have a long, long way to go in photography alone ... not to mention all other aspects!


Hi Lucy, here over in Holland we even take our kids to home at lunchbreak, so the walk (or bycicleride for me) had to be made four times a day! But now the kids are all older they go by themselves and I can wait for them to come home besides a big cup of tea with cookies, waiting for them coming home with stories. But I do miss the walk/drive through the neighbourhood and being outside, so I take a little walk outside almost every day if I don't have to go to work. Keep on lovin' the times as they are right now, because it isn't coming back!


A lovely, inspiring post! Can't wait to see the giveaway. I have recently purchased my first Rice cup from a sweet trip to the Lake District. Love the stuff. X


Hi Lucy
Love the one little leaf all on its own - we have one apple left on our tree that looks just the same, a little bit lonely, but hanging on for dear life !
That is such a stunning picture of the duck swimming over a mosaic of beautiful coloured leaves, your pictures are always perfect.
I have a sudden urge to now go straight out to buy the new copy of Simply Crochet magazine having seen your picture of it - love that magazine.
Have another lovely week this week.

I've just popped 'hyacinths' at the top of my shopping list!

I too still have the joy of the school run - my children are a little older but, living three miles away, they still rely on me to ferry them. I'd rather have your pretty stroll than my boring car journey though! Doesn't that duck look a bit nonplussed about all the leaves?!

Your wreath is a total and utter joy! You have magic in your fingers.

What a lovely blog , I enjoy the season change to , cold crisp sunny days are amazing . Reflection s on the water photos are such great colours . Thank you xx


Love your Blog its so colorful, I cant crotchet but all the wool and loveliness has inspired me to start knitting xxx


OOOH your blog posts make me smile!!!! It's always cheery and bright and the perfect antidote to a gloomy autumn day! Can I have a guess at your news? Why do I have a feeling you will be taking over Sara Sinuguglias column in Inside crochet? Much love if you are xx

What a lovely post Lucy, always so enjoyable to read what is happening in your life, thank you so much for sharing. Have a fabulous Sunday, warm hugs to you and your family


I remember the school run. Up and down the road endlessly! But suddenly it stops and you miss it. I missed that little bit of contact with the other mums each day. On other days I see them all standing out side the school on the pouring rain or frezing cold and think haha I don't have to do that any more!

I'm so excited for these mysterious photos next week!

Andrina T

Waiting to have my toes curled by your news! Although I must say the magazine has me wondering if something is afoot there... Your corner of the world is still so much more colorful than mine. Everything here has turned brown and drab, even the evergreens look gloomy! Glad to hear the little B is on the mend. After that fruit salad and gorgeous cake, who wouldn't feel utterly settled! :)


You live in the most glorious part of the world...what scenery....


How I would LOVE to attend one of your open days at your studio. But since I am on the other side of the world in Australia that is unlikely to happen. But thanks to you I can share your inspiring life over the miles.

Carolyn Jackson

I cant wait for the toe curlingly exciting news, wonder what it can be. I loved the photo of the Last leaf, I have always loved the O'Henry story of the Last Leaf, perhaps you know it too. Love your blogs and look every day, you studio looks great. You never know we may travel again so I can get to see it.

I got my hyacinths (and amaryllis too!) from the supermarket this week as well but up north here we've already had thick frosts outside. Hoping to get out for some winter caravanning in Aimee the Avondale to enjoy the countryside.


Gorgeous photos in this blog post Lucy, especially the ones with the reflections. Can't wait till Monday. Thanks again Lucy x
Love Carole from Rossendale xxxx


I love these everyday post looks like you've had a wonderful week, here in the south east we've had a week of grey plipping rain, so dull and soul distroying so you've brightened up my day.

That scenery is so beautiful . . . The reflections on the water . . . Breathtaking. Longing to hear your exciting news.
