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

Is there going to be another Lucy's CAL 2015? I do so want to

It sounds like you had a fabulous day. I would say the best job in the world is being a mother. The lemon cake sounds divine. I love lemon anything. :)


Hi Lucy. Mother's Day (or Mothering Sunday) is always the 4th Sunday in lent. Traditionally it gave a break to house servants to go home and see their mothers. It gave a welcome respite to the austerity of Lenten fasting (being midway between shrove Tuesday and Easter) and they often took gifts of flowers. It is also a respite in the church's most sombre period and one of only two days in the year when the priest (in the Catholic Church at any rate) wears glorious rose pink vestments as a sign of celebration. And obviously an excuse to eat chocolate for 1 day only for those who may have given it up for lent!
I'm glad you had chocolate. You deserve it.

My Mother's Day involved cake, coffee and a chilly walk too - it was lovely! Looks like you had a very relaxing day, which is what we mums need, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you've been crocheting :)

What a perfect day! Thankyou for sharing it. You always remind me of what's really important in life. Thankyou!

Sounds like a perfectly wonderful Mother's Day!!


Forgetting to cook dinner is a very good sign of being 'in the flow' (which is a key ingredient of happiness apparently!). Good for you and thank god for fish and chips!


happy lazy hooky Mother's Day Lucy :-) loving the look of the chunky bag!! Xx lots of love Joy Xx


We too wandered river banks in the Dales and I can thoroughly recommend Elaine's tearoom near Austwick for homemade cake, milkshakes and pots of tea.


What a beautiful Lucy's Day. Yesterday it was really cold here in the Ostalb Area (East of Stuttgart). But today warm weather arrived and we spent our day in the forest. W. did a lot of woodwork and I assisted a little. The rest of time I spent with crocheting cute little baskets for the Easter Market next Weekend. And had a stroll to our meadow with our dog and we enjoyed the sun and the warm air. Perfect start into the new week.
Thank you for your blog. It makes me enjoy the simple every day life more and more!

I loved reading your blog. Sounds like you had a wonderful day.


Sounds like heaven..... xxxx


Love to read of your adventures . Here is Florida it's already getting to warm for me. So I'm happy sitting in AC crocheting baby gifts for mt 9th g-grand baby due in May.
I think I have to do one of yours yarn bags next.
Your Mother's Day sounded to special. We are all very lucky women to children who love us.


Sounds like a truly beautiful mothers day :)

Sounds like a perfect Mother's Day! Beautiful tulips, a wonderful moment indeed with the chocolate from L.M. I can just see the challenging hide and seek now! lol Those chunky yarns made for quick projects. I'm currently working in sock yarn (not so quick).

Hi Lucy. I enjoy your blog. I so much identify with your love of crochet and color and life's simple pleasures. I am in Columbia, South Carolina. Like you, I spent most of Sunday morning crocheting and the afternoon hiking in the woods in a nearby state park, but it was 80 degrees (F) here and early spring blooms are well in progress!


Oh what a lovely day! Of course you are raising generous, thoughtful children as you are yourself! I agree re: YouTube video! Would be fun!,

I will have to take a leaf out of your book next year. My eldest presented me with a huge floral arrangement, I could not say to him, but lots of the flowers were past their best.
My Kitchen windowsill, has for the last many weeks, has been host to at least 2 vases of Narcissus. I have even washed out a couple of D E coffee jars to accommodate them. I would crochet a little band to go round the jars but have no idea where to start ;0)

Rona Griffiths

sounds like a lovely day was had by all, I had a lovely day as well, surrounded by family with flowers and chocolates, I had a beautiful bunch of pink tulips from my daughter and a bunch of mixed flowers from my son, both beautiful, and got on with the crochet owl I'm doing for my youngest granddaughter's 2nd birthday until they arrived, so I had a lovely day as well

Sara Jenkins

What a great day. It was freezing in Sussex yesterday too. It felt like winter had returned as I stood (with lots of other mums) watching rugby for hours! Wishing you a happy week. x




wow, what a fab cafe- blankets and cake, perfect. Child number 3 gave me a mug from my favourite shop (Cath K) but the extra gift of a treasured seashell from a past family walk pulled at my heartstrings. Child 1 & 2 had strong hints off me for their present gathering. No meal out either as can't don't enjoy the obligatory nature of it. looking forward to your crochet reveal, reckon it is a bag and we ladies always need plenty of those. loving your posts, lucy. thanks for sharing x
