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

Hi Lucy

Is it possible to contact you by email please?

HI I tried your bread from the post you did and it didnt turn out very well :( it did rise in the bowl but then when I turned it out it was too wet to form the round shape you had, and them when in the oven it didny rise much there.
I di a plain and a rosmary and garlic one, and although it didnt rise well my dinner guests loved the flavour.
I wonder what I am doing wrong? Is it the use of a metal pan rather than crock or iron?


I think you're very brave going out on such a cold morning but lovely photo's.

Your fire looks very inviting and homely especially with the hot chocolate to boot.

Your hooky project looks great too.


OMG! Amazing.So full of good emotions.Thank you! But where did the Robin Hood hide???


Gorgeous pics! So beautiful where you live.


Don't we live in a beautiful country? Lovely photos. (I'd have gone for the scrummy hot choc, cream & mm! Mmmmmm.)


Thank you - I feel much cooler now! It's been 43 degrees here today and 3 more days of over 40 are forecast!! I shall look at these lovely ice photos when it all gets too much!!


Delightful! You spread happiness with your eye for the extraordinary ordinary things in life. Thanks.


Lucy this is such a contrast to our weather this week. Still 42 degrees here and its nearly 7.30pm. Kerry

Love it Lucy. It's cooling me down just looking at it 43 degrees here - phew


I live in the Southern part of the globe and thus we have warmth and brightness all day long. I so much enjoyed your Sunday musings and while scrolling down it felt so dejavu-ish although I have never experienced cold conditions like yours.
It would be interesting if you could walk the same route, take the same shots five months down the line to share the contrast with us.
Many thanks for your most inspirational blog.


Beautiful photos Lucy. It is so far from my reality right now - we are having 40 degrees celcius days at the moment so your wintery photos were a lovely escape from the heat for me. Tina (theroguesparrow.blogspot.com.au)


Beautiful, love your photography and colurs of crochet against the winter landscape. I talk about spring and snow today too, pop over and see! http://eclectichomelife.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/spring-and-and-not-so-much-crafting.html?m=1


Lovely post with beautiful pictures of the frosty countryside! Such a pleasure to read, as always xx

Beautiful! Thanks for taking me along on your walk.
What are you making?

Teresa Fredson

Thank you for sharing your walk in pictures and prose. I enjoyed walking along with you. What a beautiful moment of reflection and creativity. Enjoy your day. Oh, I do love your poncho that you are making. It is very lovely.

I am an oil painter, living in North Carolina - (also a crocheter!) Your photos today inspire me so much! Never been to England in the cold winter - it is so beautiful - always picturesque and paintable - but that icy covering would be so wonderful to paint! May ask your permission to paint one of those someday! Love this blog so much!


Oh how beautiful. Here in South Australia, we are having a heat wave - a week of 40' - 43' Celsius with night time temperatures hovering in the high 20's to low 30's. Your photos were just what I needed.


You have conveyed the peace,tranquility and frozen-ness(computer says no) of your walk so beautifully Lucy. It really puts my imagination to work too as I am on the flip side of your seasons. Little B nailed it!


What a beautiful part of the world you live in! It is supposed to be winter here in eastern USA and yesterday we had torrents of rain and almost 60 F. All of our snow melted. Today was better (colder as it should be) so I made that delicious bread. What a treat! thank you.


absolutely beautiful photo's thankyou for sharing and love that fire.....although here is summer and heading for a top of 42celcius (107f) eek....


Hello Lucy, It was so lovely to have a little chat with you outside the cafe last week - you made my day! Regards from Pam x


You have such an eye for imagery, I love those wintery scenes and frosty details. I would love to be over there now, we are having a week of 35-40 deg here. Not fun.
