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

Who knew? Just catching up with the blog and my daughter pointed to Connievan with the words 'That's E's van! I was playing with her at Goldenhill!' It's firm favourite for us for camping, and somewhere we go regularly. To think I was on holiday next to a favourite blogger and I just didn't realise! Glad you enjoyed it, we love it there.


Gosh B is 5 years old already?! Where does time go?!


Lucy, you have made me feel so homesick! My home-town is on that stretch of north-east coast. I know you also visited there a while ago and I so enjoyed your delightful pictures and commentary. I now live in an equally beautiful part of the country, conveniently perched between the South Downs National Park and Sussex, Hampshire and Dorset coasts but it's over 300 miles away from my beloved Scarborough!

Thank you for sharing! xx

Ah Lucy, you photographed my favourite places so beautifully, so many happy memories of family holidays and trips to Whitby and Saltburn, I must admit, I miss those places so much living here is Aussie. Thank you for your lovely photographs bring wonderful memories.
PS love the fish and chips in Whitby!!!


Lovely descriptions--I want one of those iced fingers me-self! I truly hope one day you'll go holidaying up Northumberland. It's where my dad's family (Goodwin) is from, around LIttleHarle and KirkHarle where GGGrandpa was a gardener. I've never been, and with my 66 yrs, chances are getting slimmer that I will. I hope you can take some pictures and describe those sights for me. It'd be delicious!

Hook on, sistah!

Beautiful photos and love your adventures....the little Gypsy wagon is simply adorable!!


We were in Saltburn the weekend before you arrived and on the self same lift, pier and possibly cafe too! It's a regular haunt for us when we visit family in the North East! The pier knitted characters have been a regular thing for a few years now but some sadly perished in the storms last year .. Have just completed my own colourful granny blanket with one of your Stylecraft packs :). Thanks for your yarny inspiration! xx


Hi Lucy! As a child my holidays were in a caravan, visiting different parts of the UK. Loved it!
I wonder if you have not considered an awning for your caravan? It would give you some more space and in warmer weather 1 or 2 children could sleep in it? And if you do more walking it would be a great place to hang wet or muddy clothes and put the boots!


Lovely to see you exploring somewhere near to me and to see how it looks from someone else's eyes. Did you find Ripping Yarns in Saltburn? They're a lovely little shop :) Runswick holds a special place in my heart too with family connections :)

We are visiting Yorkshire this week so I read this post with particular interest. We don't know this part of the world at all, so Runswick Bay goes on the list. I have often read your posts about your holidays and this time I can actually go to the places you mention. Only thing is I am very unprepared for how cold it is and didn't even bring a fleece. That's what comes of living "down south". Looking forward to your next post very much. I hope we are still here.

Robin Summers

Oh wow it looks like you and the family had a brilliant time. I so love all the pictures that you take. England is so beautiful. I have England on my list of must dos for sure!!


Oh my! Love your caravan bed - and the curtains just as much! (I have a thing about two-fabric curtains.

And the yarny things along the pier are just brilliant.

I love coastal walks too - although canal walks are right up there with them for me!

P.S. I'd say a puke in a cake tin is quite an event! (Hope there was no cake in it!).


Thank you so much for those beautifull landscapes and crochet, holidays in Yorkshire with you :)
And yes, your caravan is very very cosy, a wonderfull nest.

Not been reading this blog long but it's really inspiring and the crochet is fantastic. I really must get on with my own blanket I've been doing for about two years...

YARN BOMBING!! Oh I love those gorgeous yarnbombs - so well made and ususual! I think I might need to do some myself one day! xx

Sweet Posy Dreams

Idyllic. Such a nice scene.

Yorkshire is a jewel!
As all the parts of England I have visited!
You live in a marvelous country!

Thank you as always for sharing you pictures. I so love seeing the places you go!


Once again, thank you for taking us all on your holiday! I could feel the chilly wind as I read, and smell the coffee and cakes warming you up. Loved the yarnbombing too. The Alice books have been my favourites since I first read them as a child, several decades ago. Such talent and creativity all around. Connievan looks so cosy and I'm sure the little peeps love her just as much as you do, even if they don't really know it yet...

Penny Rongo

Thank you for sharing your holiday. I love reading about your adventures and everyday life. You make things so real for us armchair travelers. Your descriptions are so real.

Ariadne Skyrianidou

Thank you for all this British coastal beauty shared with us!The yarn bombing is great!AriadnefromGreece!




Dear Lucy - you've made me homesick.....in an entirely good way. I come from the area you visited on your North East adventure and indeed my little family and I rambled along the Cleveland Way last year. It was an amazing way to see the places I know so well from my childhood from a walker/tourist perspective, You've managed to combine 3, no 4, of my favourite things in this post - the North East, crochet, camping and coffee. Lovely to read your postings as I now live in Singapore - they bring me a bit of home. Thanks. Very best wishes.


Thank you for sharing. I really enjoy reading, and watching, what you´re up to.
It give me a sense of happiness and does always make me smile inside.


I love all your posts, I found your blog while looking for a pattern for some crochet flowers and I've been addicted since! I get so excited when I see a new post, I'm like 'what's she doing now?' Even my husband has started saying, what's the topic this time?!
I love it, keep it up and look forward to some more ta-da moments soon.
Glad you had a lovely week away, family time and memories are what life is all about (and crochet of course!)
