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

Please start a new cal with another easy to follow blanket ❤️ xx


It looks like the Christmas of a happy family! I love the beginning of your new crocheted winter wreath, will there be a wool package i your shop be available?
Have a nice sunday, Martina

Thank you for sharing your Christmas with us Lucy. It sounds just my sort of day. With the family, relaxing, nice food and a lovely walk in the Yorkshire countryside. Warm, snug and cosy. Looking forward to seeing the new wreath when it is completed. I gave 2 of your colourful Cosy blankets as Christmas gifts and they went down a storm. Now looking forward to starting a 3rd one as a gift for me, ha ha. My daughter would also like me to adapt the pattern for a scarf. That will keep me busy. Than you Lucy xx

I hope your Mum feels better able to cope with her illness. It's hard to live so far apart; but well done on having a proper Christmas with the family. It sounds like a lovely time was had by all!


Close family were in my thoughts too, for special prayers. Your Christmas sounds fun and special for you and I wish you and the family a Happy New Year.

Thank you for your blog Lucy, you are an inspration, I'm almost two thirds of the way through the ripple blanker now and have been enjoying time off to catch up with family, films and crochet. Hope you have a peaceful New Year and health improves for your mother. Nadolig Llawen from North Wales. Rhian xx

Lizzie that really made me smile 😊 Little B no longer says that, but we all still say it, fond memories and a reminder at how fast they grow and change xxxxx

Wonderful Christmas wishes to you and your family. And just so you know, this morning I pronounced our holiday season had been a hundred thousand good. It has become a phrase I use over and over thanks to little B!

Dear Lucy, Merry Christmas lovely friend. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for sharing your wonderful cosy blanket, my eldest daughter was so delighted with the one I made for her and this makes me very happy. It'll be going back to uni with her, a warm yarnie hug made with love. Wishing you and all your family peace and joy! Love Jo xxxx


So loved the simplicity of your Christmas Lucy. Family time at 6am,I really miss that now our children are adults ! Lovely family christmas day walk and skimming sticks in the waterfal.
So glad you had time out of the Christmas rush to visit your poorly mom. That few days will be treasured by you both.
Happy New Year, Im looking forward to your blog in 2015.

We had those crackers too, the children loved them, we had a lot of fun racing after dinner! Xx

Leslie Leon-Cremeens

Blessed Yule to you,dear Lucy and prayers to your mum for healing and to your family for love, joy, and happiness in the new year!! <3


A very heart felt post! Thank you for sharing xx


Hello Lucy... I sure hope your mom can get well and things get better!!
I have always loved your stories, your pictures, your crochet... I follow your life like it is my daily dose of therapy!! BUT I am so sad and disappointed to hear you say you are more pagan in heart, then Spiritual!!:( That surely makes me very sad as I always pictured you as a Godly woman. Wishing you well through the Holiday Season. Patti

Martha Neave

Glad to hear you had a happy Christmas, and also glad you had time with your mum. Both holidays here we have been the helpers and cheerer uppers for my parents, I know what you are feeling.
But I do want you to know that one of the ways I cheered her up while she is less mobile was to bring her a bin of Stylecraft and she is happily working on your Cosy Stripes beautifully. So you are helping more than just one Mom!!


Wonderful Christmas wishes to you and your family. And just so you know, this morning I pronounced our holiday season had been "a hundred thousand good." It has become a phrase I use over and over thanks to little B!

Teresa Kasner

Thanks for sharing your cozy happy day with us. We had a good one too.. I posted about it. We leave our lit tree up until NYs day -- it will seem so dark when we take them down. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Sorry to hear of your mom. I'm a new reader from the US, and love your blog! The scenery is gorgeous where you live!

Sigi G

We too had a relaxed and blessed Christmas this year. Loved your cozy Christmasy home!

Winwick Mum

Glad you had a lovely day (we had the same crackers!) and that you managed to get to your Mum's and back safely. Sending you lots of love at a difficult time; it's never easy when your Mum's not well. Hope that 2015 is a wonderful year for you and your family xx


Sounds like a lovely Christmas. I love your mantelpiece bunting! Do you have a link to a pattern for it? Best wishes for the New Year. P.S. I don't have a Christmas tree at the moment owing to lack of space and 5 cats but I still have most of the old ornaments and hope to hang them on another tree at some point in the future. I think those new-every-year themed trees miss out on all the memories.


It sounds like your family enjoyed a near perfect family Christmas. Your day is what Christmas should be about. Much love and good wishes to your family Lucy, from ours in New Zealand.

Chris Porter

Glad you've had a lovely family Christmas, and that you were able to spend some time with your Mum. A difficult time of year for lots of folks. Hugs, Chris xx

lucy, i was so happy to see that the children decorated the tree and did a fabulous job. we have had dreary weather the week before xmas in new jersey and everyone was in a down mood. xmas brought sunshine and brought out the holiday spirit. so it turned out well for both of us,i think. i saw my 93 year old mom at my brother's house for dinner. on friday my kucy pack for the cosy blanket arrived from wool-warehouse. merry xmas to me. cant wait to start. have a wonderful new year.
