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 you both had a lovely time, well deserved. Lovely pictures. Take care Davina xx

My favourite place is the Yorkshire Dales. We used to have a static caravan in Settle and have spent many happy hours, days tramping round the Dales with our boys when they were small. Sometimes reluctant walkers, they could be tempted by the promise of a Star Wars shop waiting at the top of the hill !! X


So glad you two were able to get off on your own for a holiday. It looks as if you had a lovely time, in spite of the rain.


Sounds idyllic. My favourite place is The Lakes, but my husbands heart resides firmly in The Dales. Both beautiful places despite the rain, which it often does of course.
Enjoyed reading about your trip and viewing the beautiful photos, thank you.


We will be in Yorkshire in September, I can't wait! We love,love,love Yorkshire! Might see you at the yarndale, Lucy 😉 thank you for the fab pictures


You live in a postcard! Oh the shades of green! So beautiful. Thank you for your fine photos and for sharing your jaunts about the countryside.


I so much enjoy your writing and your beautiful photography. Really brightens the day. Thank you.

Isn't the light fantastic at this time of year !!??? You've caught the wonderful contrasts so well .Verrryyy atmospheric :) Thanks , as always, for sharing .
Lovely that you could organise some 'time out' from the hectic day-to-day stuff . I'm sure all benefited :))

Love this Lucy! My maiden name was Thaxton, ancestors from in Yorkshire.
I must come there one day!

Éva Géczi

Thank you Lucy. England is amazing and so is your style! I have always loved reading your blog. I live on the Continent, in Hungary, Budapest. Luckily enough I've had opportunities to visit Great Britain and once I was in Ireland. I've always been fascinated by the scenery of the countryside. Now as a retired teacher I'm longing for visiting your marvellous country again. I love your works, too. Best regards: Éva

I love the Yorkshire Dales. I went to Reeth with friends for my *whisper it* 50th birthday and had a similar weather experience, despite it being November. We had a bit more fog though, which once it cleared allowed us the most amazing views. One of my favourite drives is over Buttertubs to Hawes. And you can't beat the local ale. It's no good, I need to go back again and very soon!

Ana Paula

Thanks a lot to make my day too much better.
You're so special to me...
I have a dream, meet you personally, same if it's impossible.
What is not impossible is to love you while I live!
Your brazilian friend: Ana <3

How funny I was in just outside Hawes the same weekend. We went to Hadraw falls the next day and it was transformed into a raging torrent about three times as wide. Wish I could send you a picture. Glad you had a good weekend. Very restorative to take a break every now and again. Lucy B


What beautiful, beautiful photos Lucy. Thank you for sharing them with us. Love from an Aussie on the other side of the world that has family heritage in gods own county. XxBrenda


Oh Lucy, you are the best tourist guide! Thank you for the pictures and for showing us around that beautiful corner of England.


Thank you for sharing. I absolutely love Wensleydale and Swaledale and also one other Little Dale near by (route left out out of top of Hawes, and then a drop down to the Right ( I shall say no more as it is a secret place best without many tourists)

Your pictures were mostly like mine the last time we went. But it is still green and lush, with that peculiar smell, so reminiscent of wet earth, grass and wet sheep - I love it.

Thanks so much for sharing your weekend with us. Our children are in Y14 and Y10 at college/school so we cannot get away until after Y11 exams.... it's 4-5 hrs away for us <3


So important and precious to spend time together without the children. We used to wangle a weekend once a year (!!!) for a good few years but haven't had one for a long while now - and I miss it!

It's just one weekend but it feel like months worth of 'couple therapy' and holds you together for a long time when you're tossed back into the whirlwind of family life!


Just beautiful!


beautiful, thank you

Thanks Lucy for sharing these lovely pictures, I really would like to visit the Yorkshire Dales.

Oh my, there are some beeeeyoootiful photographs here! I especially love the last one, the colours and composition make it seem very "painterly" (is that a word? I mean, like a watercolour painting)! I am glad you enjoyed your break despite the weather. Very rejuvenating. Coincidentally my hubby and I also did a mini break over the bank holiday weekend, we went to stay with my brother in law and his family on their smallholding in the Scottish Borders. Oh how I miss my hills! There are lots of nice walks there too of course but I have bad arthritis so I can't walk far. It was just lovely to be there and I love seeing our family and their horses and the other animals.
I was pleased to see a new post as always today, but I also had a special reason for dropping by - to say that I've FINALLY finished my Cosy Blanket! Yippeee! It looks beautiful and my daughter has already adopted it for her bedroom where it looks very fine. It was a joy to create and I am itching to get on with another project! That is my other exciting news, as I was so lost and sad without any crochet to do, that Hubby has treated me to two new packs from Wool Warehouse - the original Granny, and the lovely rainbow bag kit too! I can't wait for them to arrive! While I wait I have been making lots of teeny flowers to create into hair slides. They're fun to do and I can get six done and the leaves during one episode of "Murder She Wrote"! Now that is what I call multitasking!
Finding your blog and learning to love crochet as much as you do has been such a blessing to me, Lucy. It lifts my heart and makes me smile, even when I am having a bad day with lots of pain. Happy wishes to you all at Attic 24. Love, Rubekah xxxx


Beautiful photos - thank you! I look forward to seeing you do a YORKSHIRE blanket some day with a pattern combining the cosy and the ripple to capture all the waviness of hills, fields, dykes, streams and outcrops. What a rich colour palette that would be in spring! And a double whammy; the Yorkshire tourist board could sponsor you selling your Yorkshire blanket pack as would all the lovely places you link to.


Looks like you had a wonderful weekend out. A much needed one. :)

Penny Rongo

I am So happy you were able to have some special time with your other half. Sharing that time and pictures too is the icing on the cake for everyone else. Thank you. To me The Dales are heaven on earth.
