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

Lucy, your posts are such a ray of sunshine! Thank you for continuing to share the beauty around you with your internet neighbors. Your shots of the green hills and sun-warmed stone houses pluck my heartstrings like crazy!


We've been watching the Tour de France from California. Your countryside is so green and beautiful and I'm hoping you had an opportunity to see the tour go by in person.


Beautiful summer pictures! Looking forward to the ta-dah moment as well, I love your crochet. I nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award, here are the details: http://cogaroocrafts.wordpress.com/2014/07/06/very-inspiring-blogger-award/

Have a wonderful day!


Lovely and summery! Though I am not generally a sports fan, I watched the start of the Tour yesterday specially to get a glimpse of Skipton. And yes, we got to see the castle, the church and the surroundings. Nice, but I must say that I prefer your pictures! Looking forward to everything you have to show.

The rose looks like The Garland (I have it in my own garden and its perfume is stunning). You could grow it too . . . : )

Hello Lucy,
I love reading your blog and have been doing so regularly for a couple of years. I'm sorry for never commenting before now (maybe once). I get such great joy from the pictures and stories you post from your corner of the world...thank you for all the inspiration!


Your neighborhood looks gorgeous! I love that you get to walk past a canal on your way home.

Hi Lucy, Sorry to ask...I know you are really busy.
I can't find any information on the workshops at this years Yarndale.[ spinning etc.] Where do I look ?
Thank you,
Carol Partridge.

Someone has suggested you plant a jasmine bush instead of roses - I'm going to recommend Trachelospermum jasminoides (star jasmine) which is a slow-growing climber that doesn't take up too much space against a wall (and would save painting it ;-)). The scent of the little white flowers is almost overpowering at this time of year even late in the evening. It's evergreen too, doesn't have thorns and mine is absolutely my favourite plant in my garden. More info at http://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/18287/Confederate-jasmine/Details xx

Beautiful pictures - looks like a fabulous summer!


Thank you so much from Germany. Marein
