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

Sounds like a lovely morning, the flower pots are looking great, still waiting for my Geraniums to flower, as for soup, I used to work in a pub kitchen when I was at college and it amazing how many people ordered soup on a hot day, my favourites are carrot and almond,carrot and butterbean, butternut squash or chicken noodle with sweetcorn, yum

This might be a very cheeky comment and forgive me if I am out of order and completely ignore if you want to - but ... i'm so itching to paint the walls of your delightful cosy back yard WHITE. I love your posts and I live in Dorset, and if I were nearer I'd pop round with a pot of paint......AND you could tell me to ............... xxxxx


Homegrowm tomato and basil. Yummiest summer soup and my own little girls favourite. Many blessings xx

Hello Lucy. This soup nursed my sister in law when she was very sick. Its so simple and tasty and has very happy memories for me :)

Golden Soup

1 onion
1 carrot
1 oz butter
1 bayleaf
Tin Tomatoes
1 pint water or stock
salt and pepper
rind and juice of half a lemon

Peel and chop onion, peel and grate carrot. Sauté both in butter with bay leaf for 10 minutes until slightly softened but not browned.

Add tomatoes, roughly chopped, water or stock and lemon rind and juice.

Simmer gently for 30 minutes. Remove bay leaf, Liquidize and enjoy.


J'aime réellement le blog de Lucy !!! Géranium too!!!



What a lovely way to spend Sunday morning. It's that 'Sun' that does it! I've spent almost the entire weekend making patchwork quilts in the garden. I rigged up my makeshift patio table studio and stitched away to my heart's content. Like you say - bliss! Hope the weather lasts into next week so I can photograph everything - I don't know how you keep up with all those mandalas - well done! Here's to a busy, lovely week.
