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

Hi Lucy, that pumpkin is amazing, you are very talented! My husband is Canadian so I have to make pumpkin pie quite often and we love it very chilled with a big dollop of whipped cream! I must confess to getting my pumpkin out of a tin. I use cinnamon, ground cloves and ginger in mine. A lovely spicy, wintery flavour, washed down with a glass of mulled wine. I am loving making the coast blanket, thank you.

I love the cottage garden color pallet and would love to make one. Do you have a list of the order in which you used the colors like you did for the coastal ripple blanket. I made the coastal blanket for my husband to use in his chair and now I want to make the cottage garden one for me.

I absolutely love your garden! The simplicity of it with all its pots and a nice little place to sit down, how awesome!!!


GORGEOUS post as always Lucy. Such simple but inspirational moments of your life shared with us. Thank you Xx Lots of love Joy Xx

Good luck with yarndale, Lucy. Make sure you enjoy yourself amidst all the busyness x


Good luck with Yarndale!
I sent my 'mandala'to you last June, for the big 'installment' you are going to make at Yarndale , so I am really looking forward to seeing the photos you will upload after the event.
It's a pity I can't be there as I live in Greece, but I will think of you on that day and wish you the best of luck.


i have never left a comment here i believe, but I used to visit the blog often, sometimes daily. Then i got real busy and after that i had forgot the name of your blog and could not find it untill now! So helou and thank you for the blog!

I see nasty Kate is at it again! What a sad person.I don't think you would be able to print what I really think!! Love your blog Lucy...and I'm on the home straight with my coastal ripple blanket. Looking beautiful,dead proud of it.

Winwick Mum

Yarndale is going to be even better than last year and last year was pretty darn good! Really looking forward to enjoying the day that all your hard work (and the rest of the team's) has brought about. See you soon! xx


OH how I wish I could come and participate- maybe next year american volunteers can come to be a part of your yarny party- my daughter and I are so happy our small circle crochet piece is there to represent- good luck have fun and take lots of pics so we can drool and dream from afar- best to you and your team of geniuses


I love the photo of the dahlias!


Lovely photos Lucy as always. We had a little trip to Skipton late afternoon on Sunday, sat by the canal and had a picnic. Then the church bells started calling people to evening service, Lucy it was lovely & relaxing.
Hope that Yarndale is the success it is sure to be; you and the team have worked so hard.
Take care Lucy
Love Carole from Rossendale xxxx


Dear Lucy, good luck with Yarndale, wish I could be there! Someday :-D
I was so inspired by your post, I picked little Spring posies for myself and my daughter, for next to our beds.


I love all your posts but this kind in particular. It really does make me feel that I've "popped over for a chat and a catch up" .... delightful. xxx


I'm always amazed how much life and lovely things you have to show in-amongst your yarndale work. I'm doing a fraction of what you're doing to prepare and yet it seems to take over.
So excited about the weekend!


Oh, these stressy patches of life are hmprgggrrrrssarrgghh - but they usually lead up to something great (as in your case with Yarndale!)and then we so appreciate the life-back-to-normal bit afterwards - with the added glow of the memories of the something great we achieved!

Veggie Mummy

Best of luck for Yarndale; I'm sure it will be another great success. I just wanted to thank you for your brilliant ripple blanket tutorial. I've just finished one for my eldest's birthday and I couldn't have done it without you. Have a lovely weekend. x


Beautiful photos Lucy. It's nice to look at a distant horizon when you're really busy I think, and to take a moment to breathe a deep sigh. Yarndale is at just the right time of year isn't it, just as it turns a little chilly and something deep in our DNA says "Make things with wool". I do hope it all goes swimmingly, you've put so much effort in, you should be very proud of this amazing event. I hope you're able to relax and enjoy it a little bit too. CJ xx


Have a lovely Yarndale!
One day I will make it up there! Xxx

Ingrid Kopka

Hello Lucy! Thanks for posting all these lovely photos! :) Feeling excited for you that Yarndale is happening so soon, shame I can't visit! You worked so very hard for it, so I am sure it will be a wonderful experience!
Have fun!!!!
Ingrid xx


Good luck for the weekend and thank you for all your cheery blogs. Never feel guilty about treating yourself to flowers or whatever else it may be and sharing your happiness. We would all like to make everything equal for everybody but impossible for mere mortals. Enough.


Wished I lived near would love to come yarndale your blog is also so cheerful and bright just wish I could crochet like you .
