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

Glad to read you feel better and you are back; I have missed your colorful pictures and your stories. Lovely flowers and sheep.


Hi Lucy I am so happy to read that you are getting better. Please take care of yourself and don't hurry or do too much. And I think the Lymes Regis beach huts are ideal for your photo shoot for your Spring blanket. I love your blog, colours of your blankets, and although I missed reading of your adventures I knew you weren't well and thought of you often. So welcome back.


Yay! So glad you're on the mend and back to posting your colourful thoughts. I'm in Australia and am (not very) patiently waiting for bulbs to come into the shops. They are usually here around mother's day, so I have at least a month of waiting ahead of me I think, but I very much enjoyed seeing yours again!

I was wondering where you were off too.. welcome back! Do you remember how frantic we all were when you disappeared when you had Little B? LOL! Now I know you're taking care of yourself when you take a break and I don't worry.. too much. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Welcome back! Am glad you're feeling a bit better. I've had pernicious anemia and boy, does it drag a person down. Also, understand what it's like to only want to sit and crochet (or knit) in the evenings, especially in winter.
I appreciate your honesty. It's so easy to portray an ideal image to the public via a blog or facebook and it's much healthier to be real. For all of us.
Your mantle looks darling, cheerful and bright. Hope you continue to feel better and better!


Really working on a stripes blanket is a great happiness! all thanks to you, Lucy! I have completed a new granny stripes blanket! I leave here the link if you have time and want to visit. I will always be immensely grateful! and I also believe that all crocheters of the world! thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaank yooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuu!


So glad you are back, I would check every couple of days....

Welcome back, sweetie!! I too have dealt with major Anemia issues. I was so tired, I couldn't do anything---when I went to the doctor and they figured out it was anemia, they said they were surprised I even made it out of bed, LOL! I sure can relate----I'm glad you are starting to feel better, it's almost like being reborn, to have energy to do things again, it's amazing! Keep getting well(er) and we'll look forward to seeing more of your beautiful stuff!


Welcome back Lucy you are doing a great job keeping us all inspired hope you continue to get well love Jenny xx


I was wondering if you would recover enough to continue with your blog. I've been watching for and missing your blog with the colorful yarns and covers. I'm really loving the cupcake colors. They are so filled with spring. Take good care of yourself but please know that we miss your blogs when you are not up to par. Love from Wisconsin USA

I've missed you.


Hello! I'm so please you are feeling more like your lovely self, here's hoping it won't be much longer until toy are feeling tip top again! Big hugs and lots of sunshine xxx


Glad you're back, Lucy, and starting to feel better. Sometimes these things take longer than you can imagine. Love the cupcake blanket colours.


Well done - on so many levels! For putting yourself first and doing what you need to do; for being real; for getting another lovely blanket done!!!! I honestly believe that crochet and meditation are very simular! Kept me sane while my Mum was very ill in hospital, and she had a gorgeous rug to take to the nursing home! 😳. X

Welcome back, I've missed your colourful cheerfulness on my computer. I've been anemic and had a vit D deficiency so I'm feeling your pain.


I have been feeling a bit flat today, but that all ended when I saw your blog. I have been checking daily and thinking of you whilst hooking your cosy blanket. I m glad you made time for you and that you are starting to see light at the end of the tunnel. These things sometimes take time and you just have to try and remain positive and patient however frustrated you feel about not feeling like you want to.
Take care

I was only thinking about you today on my way home from work,so glad to see you back and that you are recovering well xx


Yay! So happy your feeling better and well enough to be blogging again! I've checked and rechecked waiting to read about attic 24 land. I know the feeling of poor health. Hubby and I took turns in hospital in January and February we plodded slowly back to health. It's glorious to feel back on track! Cheers!


I'm SO happy to see you're back and you've been taking care of yourself these past weeks. As women, we are natural caregivers and our needs are sometimes at the bottom of the list. If you don't take care of yourself, who will...right? (((HUGS)))


So glad you're feeling better. Lovely to have you back in the Attic. Take care Erica X

So lovely to have your sunny self back in blogland Lucy! Wishing you continued rising energy levels. What a gorgeous sheep made all the prettier with the floral additions. We all have "warts" from time to time, after all, we're only human. Spring is in the air here and it's inspired me to start a pastel blanket(near 152cm already), in shells for my porch swing. Oh, and I've started my first knitted sock, wish me luck!(Near the heel now)I look forward to seeing the beach huts photo shoot.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Diane Benjamin

Just wanted to say, I have been sending you many healthy happy wishes, Lucy. I am glad to know that you are taking the time & space you need to step back and recoup - wise woman! Be well my colorful e-friend! (And thank you for sharing the beautiful springy snaps!)

Judith Pearson

Glad you are feeling well enough to post again-eat lots of liver !
