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

Our lilac tree is by our front door and smells wonderful, it's a real spring treat. Glad you had some lovely birthday time with your big girl; they do grow up so fast - my eldest is about to start her GCSEs. The good news is that if you're very lucky (as I am!), they become friends as well as daughters xx

LOVE your new mug! What a nice gift!


Hi Lucy, I've been reading your blog for awhile now but never have posted. I love your sweet caramel buns, will you post the recipe up sometime soon please. I love making cupcakes and cakes by "hand" it makes me feel so much more apart of the item.


The pictures you post always make me smile.
It's so nice to find beauty out in the world...even if it's an ocean away!

My May days are a lot in the garden, with dirt under my nails, and dirty feet too. lol Setting out veggie plants and sowing seeds, mainly just soaking in the sunshine and natures beauty. I too mourn the cherry blossoms, what an enchanting walk indeed! A B-I-G Happy 10th Birthday to L.L! Where does the time go?! My baby girl just went to the prom. Yikes! Happy May!

God plants simple moments throughout our day, doesn't He....thanks for reminding me to enjoy them :)

Lovey pictures, lovely blog - if only everyone could see the simple pleasures we derive from say a piece of lilac, dandelion etc.or from just spending quality time with those we love. I am having a Me Day which we all need now and again. On Sunday I spent two solitary hours in our local woods and marvelled at seeing the deer and squirrels going about their business oblivious to me sitting quietly filming them


I like a lot your blog for the simplicity of moments (excuse my bad english lol).
Photo, crochet are really beautiful.


You know, I think I love your daily life photo posts as much as the tah-dah big crochet posts. Beautiful photos :)


Veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery nice post for eyes and for heart!
Thank you, Lucy!!!

Lovely post Lucy. I adore the smell of Lilac, isn't it funny how just a smell can take you right back to a certain time or place or bring back memories ?
Your ripple blanket is so pretty, I haven't tried this pattern yet ... just might have to give it a try.
Scary how quickly the little ones get big .... I nearly have three over 20 now and it seems like yesterday they were all just running around at home.
Have a lovely rest of week,


I LOVE reading your blog. You have become my friend :0)


Oh Lucy, how I love your blog :) I would dearly love to visit England but through your blog, I'm content to see the beautiful scenery - for now ;). Loving your daily walks along the waterways too - lucky you. And your crochet - I'm a knitter but would love to be able to crochet too. Take care and keep up the wonderful blog.

Hi Lucy - my youngest is 10 and I can't always get my head round how "grown up" he is! I'm sure I wasn't that mature when I was 10. Sad and good all at the same time .... Looking at your boy's beautiful artwork here's an idea. Take a pic, load on your laptop/phone and use as the wallpaper. If you have loads then you can have a different one every day! That way you can keep them forever and load them all up for display at his 21st birthday party just to embarress him!!! Just a thought. x

Even the wet photos are lovely. Do you carry your camera everywhere or do you sometimes use an iPhone or similar?
May is so beautiful.


I so envy your wonderful daily walks, so safe it seems, even to walk alone, what heaven.


Early morning light is the best! I have been enjoying it here - and also captured some pretty rain drops. The canal festival sounds like a lot of fun - looking forward to seeing pictures!


What lovely photos! And I am jealous of all your fiber work. I haven't had a chance to touch my knitting/crochet stuff in years. And I've got bags full of beautiful yarn that either need to get used or get out!


p.s. You really do get some bizarre comments here...


Gorgeous cherry blossom carpet- do they have a fragrance to match that beauty? That and lilac- two plants I have never had the chance to experience. Maybe one day.

Mary P. Smith

Can you please tell me what yarn you used for
your coastal ripple? I live in Southern California
and it was 105 in our back yard last week and it is already very dry here and not green.

E.v.e.r.y.t.h.I.n.g you post is a delight and most-definitely pleasing!!!

Thanks so much for sharing these lovely glimpses of your beginning to May. I'd say it's off to a spectacular start, indeed!

Please wish Little Lady a belated happy birthday. She's a doll, i'm sure! Glad you both had such a sweet day together.


Lucy I love to visit your blog and see all the fab stuff you make - I know you love to come up with your own patterns and ideas but thought you might like to take a look here

I'm sure your daughter is not too old to love the crochet hippo or one of the other designs - you can probably come up with something similar yourself . I don't crochet but I love all these patterns.


Thank you for your beautiful blog post as always! So happy and colorful, just lovely! Maybe a book in the future for you?

Mary Marsh

I'm in Maine, USA. I'm SO jealous of all the green you have, trees, grass, flowers. We had SO much snow this winter, the buds are just coming out on the trees. We drive down the highway and there's a tinge of green, about to explode!
Love your blog Lucy. Your mandalas are lovely, your ripply afghan, all your work.
You bright bright joy to my day!
