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

Just gorgeous. I feel calmer just reading about it. Thanks for sharing. :)


Not only do your photos remind me of home but your words are so descriptive, it's as though I am home when I read your blog. You have a beautiful way with words as well as being creative! You are a very talented lady!

My high school textiles teacher always said "you should never be without a camera as you never know where inspiration is going to come from!" Wise words!

I love your posts on daily life where you live. It's fun to see someone else's view in the world! I always love the boats...something I want to see for myself one day.

Thank you for another lovely post - bit late to the party here I hadn't noticed it until now. Reading about autumn colours has made me much more aware of the autumn colours around here and I've even started to come home from walks with little treasures - a few leaves, some rosehips or some dried grasses. Its easy when you are busy to walk around with your eyes closed isn't it? Feel like I am missing less these days though because of your inspiration xxx

We went to Yorkshire Dales a few years ago and stayed in Hawes! It is so beautiful, as is the whole of the UK! You are blessed with a stunning countryside! I love the lush green grass, the brick walls and when you fly over the country, all the different colours, looks like patchwork!! My forefathers come from the UK, so I am very patriotic to the country! My daughter lived in England, then Scotland for 4 and a half years, so I was lucky to visit 4 times! I had a ball walking with you! The autumn colours are awesome!! Rosemary Moolman, South Africa

A beautiful area that you live in......thank you for taking us on your walk too. Love all those glorious Autumn colours!


Hi Lucy - beautiful photos! Have you got a new cheaper camera? The affiliate link goes to a different model from the link you gave us last year.

I do love your Autumnal photos. I always enjoy having a quick look to see what you have been up to. I will definitely be trying your latest blanket but it will have to go on my never ending to do list....

Not really related to the Woodland Walk, but I saw these crochet flower buttons recently and thought they were right up your street;

Esther Coetzee

I hope you know how lucky you are to be able to have this wonderful woodland to walk in. I live in Centurion South Africa and there is no way that you can walk alone in a woodland here. To dangerous. You live in a beautiful place. Sorry for the language, I am Afrikaans but enjoy your blog. I am a crochet addict. I've been crocheting since I was 5 years old. Your pattern instruction are the best I have ever use. I recently made the bower bird for my grandchild which is due in February 2015. Can't wait! Thanks for all your effort. Greeting from South Africa.


What a lovely part of the world you live in Lucy. Beautiful pictures. Thankyou for sharing.
Blessings Gail.


I love the photo collage at the end of your post. I am not usually an autumn colour girl, but these photos make me think differently.


England looks so gorgeous. Beautiful pictures. You are fab! Your posts make me so happy, especially since the weather here is so dreary. Thank you for inspiring me to rekindle my love of crochet and making things, and to enjoy the simple pleasures of life! :)

It's so lovely to just take some time out at your own pace and take in the views. I'm terrible as I take a point and shoot, my big camera and my phone. Depending on how many people are around dictates which camera I use (I don't like looking conspicuous) :-) You live in such a richly artistic place.


"This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body."
— Walt Whitman

Hi Lucy, such a love forest to enjoy. My favorite part is the little waterfall, I bet it sounds melodic. We have a creek, 3 waterfalls and a pond with koi here in our back yard and I just love the sound of it. Enjoy your beautiful world. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Beautiful photos -- that fourth one down is begging for a yarn palette!


What beautiful surroundings to be able to walk in. Just lovely. Thank you for sharing your walk with us today. I keep my little point and shoot in my pocket as well, you never know what glorious things you might want to take a pic of.

Marilyn Ryman

It's warming up fast here in Queensland, Australia. Lovely to see a hint of coolness in your air as I am not good with our humid summers. I am taking a break from packing to move a little further south for a while, so it was nice to sit and read your blog. Thank you. Marilyn
