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.

Your not going to giveany new free tutorials are you?


OO! Lucy! I've just downloaded a PatternReview.com dress pattern that I think you would look smashing in! It's called the Winter Street Dress (but you can make it for all seasons). The instructions are excellent. I'm going to make several! You need to take a peek at it. xx


It looks smashing when you put it all together like that Lucy. I have to have a big sigh remembering it all and knowing how quickly the time has gone. I will always love your red boots! I'm thinking of crocheting some 'boot tops' this winter. They look really funky. I'm really looking forward to your summer posts too.


The year is going way too fast. Love all of your beautiful pictures ♥


Yes , I had to think hard, four years since you got Connievan. Where on earth has that time gone to???
Still enjoy popping in here and seeing what you have been getting up to. Lovely photos, love all your bright colours.

I hadn't looked at it like that, one quarter of the year! Full of your colour buds and then full blown flowers! The pinny you were wearing at Yarndale, I was trying to think of how I could make one and saw a pattern on Folksy! Might just have to buy it, to save me making a mistake in my 'gestimates'

Amy at love made my home

I hope that you have lots of lovely colour and happy all year through! xx


The year is whizzing by...mind you, I was a bit shaken by your post the other week when you said that Connievan was four years old- I'm still thinking Connievan is a new thing... have I been reading your blog for more than four years...gosh! I guess I have. Time flies when you are enjoying yourself!


Great pictures and so many projects already!! So much still to do and I have lots of new ideas for the next quarter too. karen xx


That was a bit of a shock to me but you are right a whole quater gone already, eek it's flying by, loving all the colour as always.

time flies the older we get eh ... lovely colourful first quarter of a year ... looking forward to the next quarter xx lots of love Joy xx


Lucy, would you make your monthly mosaics into a calendar? They are so lovely and I think plenty of us would be keen to buy one. Liz x


The year has indeed flown by, I wonder if it is to do with my age!I too have posted my last quarter pictures, plus a great British classic cake recipe, pop over and see http://eclectichomelife.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/a-british-classic-with-twist.html


Yes, it's crazy how quickly this year has been going by! It seems quicker each year, too. x
