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

What size crochet hook do u use for the stripey blanket thks from Lizbeth lowe


Lucy, you sound like your old self again and it's just lovely. Glad you have had a wonderful break and are feeling rested. I really enjoy reading about your family life as well as all of your wonderful colourful crochet. It makes me feel like I'm catching up with an old friend. Take care and warmest wishes from 'me' in New Zealand :)


Ah! how wonderful! No end of vacay blues!
Lucy - that means that you truly had a RESTFUL time - and unplugging from internet, etc. probably had a big part to play in that. It's important for someone as busy as you are to take that time with your family - unrushed, no outside "interference" - just rest and relaxation....so when you got back home you were truly ready to get back in the swing - without the usual blues.
Happy, happy for you....and your lucky family! I hope your Little Peeps realize how fortunate they are to have you for their Mum!
Don't try to overdo right away....and I'm looking forward to seeing what you are doing for Yarndale....I SO wish I could attend that....sounds like such a great event!

Welcome back. Isn't the sea a healing being? I too escaped, to Anglesey for a night and returned at peace.


I enjoy reading your posts and seeing your photos----You are a great Mom!


I am glad to hear you are not having post-holiday blues this year!! The holiday you took looks amazing - i am sure you will carry the memories in your heart for a long time to come. :)

Take care

I'm with you on the 13-year old and the family meal! My teenager is now 16 and the one thing I have insisted on throughout is eating dinner with us everyday. It is often the only time we see him - the one bit of the day where he connects with us (plus gets some proper food inside him!). You may like to read what I did with/for my son when he turned 13 to test - in fun way - whether he was ready for the new levels of freedom and independence he was pestering for!

It is always nice to slow down and have a quiet vacation. One that will charge your batteries and bring you closer to your family. I have missed you. Lots of love to you and the family! xoxoxo


Thank you. Just what I needed after a couple of traumatic weeks. A little bit of calm and normality. x


Thank you Lucy for posting those lovely photos of West Bay. I celebrated my 50th with lunch on the harbour there a couple of years ago. Although we live in rural North Wales close to the sea, Dorset is a favourite holiday place for us!


Glad you had a good restful, non-technology, break.

Elsie Pop

Lovely! I had the same feeling when we got home after our last holiday - it's nice to snuggle back in your own house sometimes! xx


Your pictures and words are inspiration for me - for craft work but also to rethink my own life - to slow down and enjoy every little moment. And that switch off from technology is something we all should do from time to time. Thank you!


Lovely Lovely Dorset Lucy so pleased you've had a great time there with all your family.....we are off to the Swanage area and the wonderful Purbeck Hills in September and am I so so looking forward to it. We all need to recharge our batteries and a few days away does that for me, I come home feeling refreshed and ready to carry on with every day things. Shall look forward to your next post and photos of Dorset.

Lovely post.
I enjoyed reading it.

Glad that you are happy to be back home as well, not so difficult with all this cosiness surrounding you.

Pam Wilson

Loved the pictures, always glad that you share your lovely holidays with us..It feels like we're having a break with you. Glad to hear from you


So nice to have you back Lucy, you have been missed!

sarah watkins

love your photos they are so evocative and the colours are always inspiring.


Lovely photos as usual, Lucy. Treasure your memories as time passes so quickly and your children grow up so quickly.


Ah, it's always nice to come back home! Your own bed, chair, towels, kitchen, bathroom etc. grab a cuppa and sit if you want to. Lucy, do you take your photos on your phone or with a camera, they are lovely and clear.

Susan Conklin

I love seeing your Dorset pics and hearing about your family's activities. Especially enjoyed the 7-years-ago link, it took me back to when my children were small -- hama beads, glue & glitter, Roger Hargreaves' books, Nanny McPhee. Precious memories!


Glad to hear you had a good get-a-way and are now rested and ready to tackle everything.
My eyes immediately focused on the beautiful bi-color rose in the 5th picture from the top!! So gorgeous.

Sue Munn

Love your posts from Dorset! We spent a few days of our honeymoon there in 1985. I would love to visit again. On the crochet front, I'm making a Neat Ripple baby blanket for our new great nephew, Leo. I'm doing uneven striped rows in gray, white, navy, and light blue. I hope they like it....I do!

Hula Loop

Love reading your 'ramblings' and really look forward to your posts. Glad you had a good break! Enjoy the rest of the Summer holidays xxx Sarah

Catherine Maudsley

Hello there - my problem is that I don't like going away from home!! I have at last joined a class at our local garden centre and am finally crocheting. I have mastered two colour granny squares and am now using your pattern for the solid granny squares. Aiming for a 'teddy' blanket! sitting in the class today a lady leaned across and was watching us, we said come and join us. she wanted to learn to crochet cos she follows a blog - I said is it 'Attic24' and she said Yes!! So you are famous. I showed her your pattern I was following and then we got on to Yarndale and are in discussion about coming the 'do'! I hope to start my granny blanket soon and then the ultimate ripple blanket........all down to you x
