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

Sounds like my kind of week. I love it when there's not too much going on and I can just "be". What a nice day you must have had sitting quietly on the train just looking out the window and crocheting. So glad you had a bit of peaceful time to enjoy.


Thank you again Lucy we have had amazing sunsets here in Cornwall and I love trying to capture the fleeting glory in the sky. It's great to touch each other's lives and share our creative joys. Just been reading that craft is good for you and crochet is very good ! Well we suspected that didn't we! take care love Jenny xx


Bye Jean

Sue Beard

I love the Advent calendars! Where did you get them?


Your contentment is contagious :)



Good week, I'd say! It's giving me a hankering for up norf'!

Darlene Garner

Loved, loved, loved this post. Especially the Salts Mill. I oohed and aahed at all the different ones in such a beautiful setting (vs. the modern, square unattractive shops here in the US). Also loved the lights in your town.


Bye Jean!

Another beautiful, cosy post. Thank you Lucy.

I love the plain white lights too. The trees around our market place are covered with them. Very effective as the open air skating rink has been finished and is now ready for the Christmas season.

Very predictable - a "homely" post before the CAL post with it's link to the yarn packs.

A long time reader but now - I'm out.

Chris Porter

What a lovely happy post, Lucy. Your descriptions are so clear, I feel I'm there with you! Thanks for sharing, and have a fantastic weekend. Hugs xx

I tried to crochet yesterday whilst on a long drive to Milton Keynes, but I couldn't 😟 really enjoying the CAL, I'm on stripe 48.

Looks like life is good in your world, the same in mine.lol We've been decking the halls, I'm in total holiday mode! Christmas music playing as I un-tangle twinkle lights and the girls trying to agree on what the theme for the tree will be this year and the hubby promises to set up the train when we're finished...life is good. :))Time with family and friends, the best! (Thanks for the reminder of the advent.)

Denise Marshall

Sounds like a lovely week. It's been similar weather here in Northampton too. I've also been thinking about Christmas presents and have ordered a few things on line. Guess what, I ordered all the wool needed for the Poncho and a Knitpro crochet hook to make it, my excuse, they will be wrapped up for me as a pressie from my husband. Lol.

Kate Whyte

Your posts are uplifting, many thanks!

Cherie Chudyk

Tiptree jam so yummy, and just a few miles from me too! I too enjoy the smell of wood smoke in the air at this time of year, glad I'm not the only one. Thanks for sharing your week with us, always a pleasure to read and lovely photo's too xx


Love your photos!! I can't stop thinking about Harry Potter when I see the train!! Thanks a lot for share!!! Happy weekend from Argentina!!!


Your town always looks so pretty. I broke out the scented candles this week too, it does make it feel so much cosier. Toasted crumpets with butter and jam and Gillian sounds like a most excellent day, and a train journey to boot. Wonderful. Have a lovely weekend Lucy. CJ xx


A lovely weeks! It is great you take notice of so many small things!

take care

There is an amazing shop in Tiptree called the Cheap Shop....a favourite haunt of mine for fabric and all things crafty....often followed by a cream tea at the jam factory... mmmmmmm

Teresa Kasner

Oh my.. thanks for sharing those fabulous photos.. I feel the holiday spirit welling up inside of me. Our Thanksgiving is over (photos on my blog) and now today I hope to encourage my son and husband to put up our tree so I can begin the lengthy project of decorating it. :-)

((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Sounds like a pretty successful and colourful week. (I love the gloves you're wearing in the photo of the leaves, by the way.) :-)


Sounds like a lovely week. I am looking forward to Monday as I start an Advent scarf on Ravelry. Love the Hama fox, I loved the look of them so have bought my niece a little kit for Christmas. C x


Your week sounds ideal. Love the look of your Advent calendar ~ lucky you! Our Christmas lights went on last weekend here too. They are beautiful ~ some are white and there are also some brightly coloured ones strung across the main street in the town. Hope you have a lovely weekend :O)xx
