About Me

  • Hello! 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

So pleased you're feeling better! And there's nothing like a beautiful day to speed up the recovery process! xAx


Sorry to hear you have been poorly, hope you are feeling much better soon x


Oh poor you there is nothing worse than having that type of virus when everything hurts including your own skin. Glad you are feeling better.


Such lovely pictures of early Spring - it gives us hope that we might actually have some good weather! I love seeing all the flowers bloom at this time of year :)

Su Bishop

Glad you are feeling better, its sunny and just a little bit spring like down south too. You take such wonderful photographs, making the ordinary look georgeous. Thank you!

Christine Gregory

Glad to hear your feeling better, I've had a bad chest for three weeks. I feel it's just coming to an end.
I love reading your blog, just nosy really. I busy with my hook making a cardigan for myself, I bought far too much yarn for the project so that means more than one item for me yes!


Glad you're feeling better. It is so so good to see some spring sunshine and how robust those little spring bulbs must be to still burst up and into colour after all that horrid rain we've had.


What a lovely bright happy post Lucy. I love your photos of the town and countryside. My mum was born not far from you, as were generations of her family. When she was a girl the whole family came to Australia. I was lucky enough to visit England and more specifically Yorkshire two years ago and loved it. I truly believe my English heritage is a genetic imprint that pulls me there, i love love love england. Although I may never get back to the uk again, I'm glad I have seen it once and love reliving it through your photos. Just wish my mum was still here to share it with her too. XxBrenda


I find life so hard at times but reading your blog gives me such inspiration. I may even venture out for a walk! Thank you Lucy
PS. Glad to see your feeling better x


Glad you feel better !
Can't wait for the tutorial :-)

Winwick Mum

Glad you're back on your feet again, it's no fun to be poorly. Just watch the temptation to do too much to catch up on those days when you did nothing but rest - your body needed to rest for a reason! :-) xx

Nicola Turton

What an absolutely blog. I've been following your for about a year now and have never commented. You always manage to brighten my day when I read your blogs :) :) Thank you. I am currently working on my version of your Ripple Blanket and loving it. :) :)


What a lovely, colourful, cheerful post - obviously much better, and I'm sure the (hopefully not too temporary) return of the sun helps!


I am glad that you are feeling better, the sneaky peak at the cushion looks good. I will be reading the tutorial with pleasure, I have a delivery of wool to play with and my crochet is improving, I look forward to a tutorial for your lovely hat. I am really enjoying crochet, it is so easy to put down when something requires immediate attention, not like quilting. Pam

So glad to see you up and about and out of the clutches of the nasty virus. They can sure grab ahold in an instant and hang around for a couple days without invitation. Wonderful to have a new pillow cover in the mix, too, to enliven the couch. Have a great week with your spring-like weather and grand reflections in the canals. They're delightful.


Great to have you back on road to good health. Love your blogs, creations and pics, Lucy! Keep hooking and blogging ...you inspire us! Have a great day!

Gillian McM

Lucy you are INDOMITABLE!
So glad you are back on your feet, even if a little wobbly.

Being in the Southern Hemisphere, I'm sad to see March! As soon as the 1st flipped over, it seems that it suddenly was Autumn - only 6C this morning on my way to work and it's now gloomy, grey and wet....ah well, at last a chance to wear woollies!

Tina H

I'm sooo happy that March is here, because it means it's AuTuMn here in the Southern Part of the world!! Bring on the cool weather - I am craving it. Your picture of the crocus patch is just magical!


Yes, I am finally looking forward to spring. I am tired of my cheeks hurting from the cold - I could stand it to be a bit milder. Since my birthday is on the first day of Spring, I have double goodness to look forward to!

Anne Dearle

So glad to read you are on the mend. I too have been unwell with a cold and have been feeling miserable. However, your beautiful photos brighten my day and make me realise I should not complain. We have a beautiful world. We have just gone into Autumn in Australia. Here in Perth we have been sweltering for quite a long time. It will go to 38 degrees C this week again. Not very pleasant. I sit inside with the airconditioner on and crochet. Can't wait for your Raindrops tutorial. What a beautiful stitch it is. Love your work and the happy colours you use.


A wonderful post, Lucy. All that delightful flowery colour. You really conveyed a sense of excited anticipation for Spring to be sprung. I am a little envious of that (being downunder as I am) but then I would have to survive your cold, cold Winter which, although looks wonderful through your eyes (and blog) might be a bit much for me in the flesh lol. This time of year where I am is wonderful too (the beginning of Autumn) - still warm enough for shorts and t-shirts but not so hot as to render one comatose... So pleased that you are over your bug- that feeling of being better after being crook simply sparkles between your words.


Oh Lucy! I remember those days when I was a young mother. I think I caught every thing my children brought home! We all (have to) bounce back thank goodness! Glad that you have too. Many many very happy thank you's for your sunshiny photos. It is so very friendly of you to share and help us all to understand just why you love your little home village so much. I think it is just divine!! More more more please!! Can hardly wait for your next post down here in Australia. xox


happy you are faring well!
enjoyed this sweet post.
would like to see more photos of your town.

Andrina T

Bless your heart, you were down hard weren't you? So glad to hear you are bouncing back, and out and about in those gorgeous crocuses (croci?)! They look like little Easter eggs that have popped up everywhere.
Dyyying to see the Raindrips cushion and tutorial, but I am sitting on my hands being patient, as I want you to be well more than I want the crochet stuff.
