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

I have planted hyacinths bulbs in pots and left them in the cold garage for a few weeks. Now they are ready to move inside the house. Mine'll be blue-ish. Love the smell of hyacinths!

Sounds like a lovely place to live. Here in Indiana, USA we have our days shorten also. When I come home from work the sun is in the back of the house. All that sunshine comes thru the kitchen windows. Keep up the writing and the pictures. I really enjoy your blog. Thanks Colleen


Hi Lucy! The postman brought my lovely cosy kit to Connecticut today. It makes me so happy.
The packaging of the yarns is an extensive of your lovely Way with Things. It has gone into the closet where the Powers That Be, can decide if it's for my birthday or Christmas, but either way I have to finish a course first. My blanket will be a mid winter/spring endeavor. Thanks for the happy thoughts!


It seems as though I just took a lovely walk with you this morning. I enjoyed it so. Thank you for the inspiration and for sharing in such a poetic way.


Hi Lucy! First time reading your blog. I was feeling very cranky about a silly mistake I made, and your beautiful post has reminded me to enjoy the little things and not worry so much. Thankyou! :)


Fireside crochet and such a lovely project. Keep focused on home-y things to ward off the winter blues.

Hope everyone is well and it is good to see you back, more like your old self again <3

Mentioned you in my latest blog post....you might want to take a look as there are West Bay piccies.

I thought of you and yours as Little Lady and I sat colouring in Christmas Cards over breakfast this morning....happy memories of snowflakes being cut up on your dining table came to mind.

Lots of love Lucy


P.s. I now simply MUST buy some hyacinth bulbs as a matter of Great Importance!


Beautiful photography. I absolutely love autumn and the cosiness it brings. X


Can't wait to see what the pine cone project is. I have a similar excitement after popping into the pound shop on the way back from school this morning and seeing something tiny and unexpected for sale on the counter by the till which sparked me off with an idea for a project...

These little things keep us upbeat!


You know Lucy, I just wanted to say, that I love reading your posts. They are actually very calming. Life over the past few months has been an exhausting trial to say the least (and I know that they've been a bit that way for you too), but reading your posts is lovely and calming and has been very welcomed. So I just wanted to say thanks really!

I hope your mum is continuing to make good progress and you feel a bit more rested after Yarndale.

Take care my lovely

I love the wind for the early memories that it evokes.
We stocked up on some yarn yesterday. I'm going to show my sister how to crochet again, whilst following you CAL. I've already got 2 of your patterns on the go- a small ripple for my daughter's Pug Puppy and your Summer Garden Granny Throw for said daughter. I must also start a soft toy for my grandson, a brother for the one I made him for Christmas last year. It goes everywhere with him.
Your photos are lovely to look at in amongst the rain we are having here in Cumbria.


I love that cosy blanket, such wonderful warm colours.

Can't wait to see what you do with the pine cones ! Guess what's on my Christmas list ?Hama beads !!


I miss living near a canal but I like your photos as a reminder :-) One day I'll take a barge trip, but someone else can drive so I can sit on top with a glass of vino and crochet ;-)


Lucy, thank you for taking me to wonderful places via your lovely photos. Always love to read your blog.


Oooooh, awaiting your pine cone idea with much anticipation - they are a staple of my Xmas decorating and I have loads but could do with some new ideas! Lovely pictures as always xx


Lovely Post <3<3

Loving .... your post :)


I just love pine cones and always pick some up whenever I see some (Holkham Beach being my favourite pine cone location).

I have pine cones dotted about all over the place and wondering what to do with them. I wonder if you have some type of pine cone creation in mind Lucy?

Mary Chiles

Loving...this post and your new haircut. Thanks for hooky inspiration and the beauty of your photos. I ordered my cosy kit just the other day. Looking forward to crocheting in vivid color next to the woodstove.

Loving the moment, we should all do that more often. I look forward to seeing what creative ideas you have in store for those pinecones. It's been unseasonable cold here of late (14F this morning)watching the leaves fall like rain here today, not a lot left on the trees here either. I'm working like a mad-woman possessed trying to finish the hubby's knitted blanket. lol (S-o miss crocheting!)Happy sunshiney days!


Loving... every single post you wrote! <3 <3 <3


You always seem to see the beauty around you even on the darkest, drabbest days. Helps to open my eyes to the good things rather than focussing on the damp, cold dreariness of the season. I'm trying to enjoy the colours of the last leaves out of my window, rather than longing for the new green shoots! Loving the blankie too!


a warm place, flowers and wool... it is perfect for a really cold day.
It seems like a quiet post.

Hallo Dearest Lucy

I am so excited with every new blog post from you. Can't wait to see what is on your hook or where you are of to. Here is South Africa it's turning into a very warm summer and I do so like the winter as it is so nice to crochet next to the fireplace and inside somewhere cosy. Your pictures makes me very jealous, the fire and all, but we have to go through each season! One day I might just be lucky enough to visit England again and come and see all the beautiful places in your pictures. Thank you for all your sharing and post. Even those on Facebook. I just love love love every single one!!!
