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

I found your blog through a Crochet Addicts share on fb with a link to your holly leaf pattern. Then followed some of your links. I love the pics and your writings about your adventures. I love the outdoors as well. I live in the mountains of PA, USA and love it. Seeing England someday is a dream of mine. Thanks for sharing a bit of your life. God bless.


Where are your shoes from?


First a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! to one of my favorite online "friends"! So happy you and your man were able to get away and enjoy some "you" time together! How wonderful.

Your photos are so beautiful. I can, after looking at them for a few seconds, close my eyes and imagine myself there on the edge of the water - one of my very favorite place to be. and can feel my body relaxing so nicely! thank you, Lucy, for taking us along on your lovely walks...since we don't have a lot of color change here in Southern California, enjoying yours along with you brings back memories of childhood days in the Northeast US with fall colors and cooler temps. So nice after a long, hot summer!

Bless you, Lucy. For all you do for all of us! I hope you have some idea of how much inspiration you provide for so many around the world! And how much so many of us enjoy "walking along with you" on your jaunts - whether it be at the shore or just in the fields are areas around your neighborhood - they call come alive for us as we join you.

Blessings to you and your lovely family!


So much joy to be found! I LOVE the photo of the leaves and your feet - your shoes look like beautiful, shiny conkers!


Belated Happy Birthday, the boots are....HOW MUCH???!!!


Happy Birthday, Lucy. I too celebrated a birthday on Friday. I turned 72. I also had a wonderful day spending it with family.
Thank you for sharing your life with us. Love your postings. I so look forward to reading them.
And your pictures are very professional like.

Happy Belated Birthday Lucy. Autumn and Winter are my 2 favourite seasons love nothing more than been cozy at home xx


Happy Birthday, dear Lucy! What a lovely celebration you enjoyed. Autumn is a beautiful season, full of colorful activity before the quiet winter season. Then along comes spring and rebirth. It's all good!


Gotta love a four day birthday! I am writing this from beside the heater, with a blanket on my lap and one dog and one cat snuggled on either side of me. Today I saw our first snowflakes. I am not ready for winter but there is an undeniable beauty in the season change that I for one relish along with you. I miss being able to go blackberry picking from English hedgerows! Your blog post made me nostalgic for another life x


Color is such a gift given to us by our Creator for us to enjoy! Thank you for photographing His gifts and sharing them with us. Could you post your source for the beautiful red Mary Janes again?

Happy b-day to you, happy b-day to you. You have many years of hooking to look forward to. I am so glad I found you as your blog makes my day. Do what you want today and again, many happy returns.


Well first Happy Birthday. After looking at your fall leaves, did you know you can melt bees wax and dip your fall leaf collection in it and then string them up to make a garland? Then you can view fall right in your own home!
Here in Washington State, we are so waiting for rain....it is horribly dry. Bad fires this year and our land is parched. Please send some of yours over to us, hee hee. Have a great day

Winwick Mum

Happy birthday to you! Glad you had a lovely weekend, our fire has been back in use for a few weeks now and we love that "snuggled in" feeling we get from it being on! xx


Thanks so much for the relaxing images and read you shared with us. Your style of posts allows us to feel as if we are there in spirit as you ramble along in both your walking and writing. Inspirational and 'wanderful' ! Happy Birthday, regards, dee


Hope you had a wonderful birthday Lucy, greetings from Canada. It seems the older we get the years just fly by.


My birthday was also this week; I turned 36 on Tuesday. Happy Birthday!
I am new to reading your blog and am really liking it. I am starting a fall colored cosy stripe blanket today.


Happy birthday! Fabulous post, fabulous pics, as ever. I so enjoy your blog Lucy, thank you!

Carol Brocklebank-Kerwin

Happy Birthday, and thank you for inspiring me with your posts. Have a fabulous year.
Cheers, Carol


Happy birthday to you! What a beautiful post. The photograph of the mossy rocks with the leaves is pretty much all of my favourite colours in one place - gorgeous!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LUCY GIRL! And a great way to spend a birthday...thx for sharing the pictures. Autumn is my favorite time of year...all the different reds, golds, yellows mixed with the dark green of evergreen fir trees. Sunny but cool...just the bestest weather for crochet! :)MO
