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

Hi I can't understand the third row in the cosy stripe pattern. If you begin with 2 trebles and leave 2 spaces (that is the first multiple of 3) continue along the row and the last lot of 3 trebles leaves with 2 chain stitches which is the last multiple of 3. So, how can you leave 2 spaces at the end of that row? Please help as this is driving me nuts.


Looking foward to start my Moorland blanket!
I have to finish my Ripple blanket made with Cupcake colors before.
Thank you so much for all your beautifully colored project. You colore my life!


Thank you for sharing this little bit of your life, The shifts of family life, growing, developing children, quiet moments. The little things that are really so important. I do so enjoy these gentle blog posts. Hope you are feeling better now.

Hello Lucy.
Not a comment on your post. But yesterday I came across something very Lucyish on the web, which I hope somebody already showed it to you a year ago. Or I am the first.
The most colorfull one is sold out. But the blue (!) and white one are still for sale.
Maybe it is something you like :-)



I am stil laughing over Little B and the Naughty Words.

The naughty words story is funny! There are worse things kids could be doing besides swearing these days. Love the kitty, so cute. Happy New Year!


Glad you are feeling better Lucy and sorry you were under the weather over Christmas. I am keeping my fingers crossed here across the pond that I can avoid the colds and flu this year, did get a flu shot, but my grown daughter had strep just before Christmas. The naughty words story is funny! There are worse things kids could be doing besides swearing these days. Love the kitty, so cute. Happy New Year!

Oh, that little calico kitty! :)


Oops, it's Ruth not Paula.


I had a streamer on Christmas Day and spent the day sneezing and blowing my nose over everyone! Shame isn't it, when the build up is for so long and then it's all over in a few days.
I hope you're better and haven't got the lurking cough.
I love blog posts like this and delight in reading the comments as I know there will be someone somewhere who is outraged ha ha! Is that naughty of me?! Liked Paula and her strict childhood naughty words comment. A lot.


Naughty words fest made me laugh so much like you I've been battling the snot monster since Christmas wishing you all a wonderful 2017

I also loved the story about the Naughty Words! Can't believe someone took you off her blogroll!!! We are Americans but Anglophiles thru-and-thru, spent 8 visits in the UK and especially Yorkshire, our spiritual home-from-home. When my lobsterman husband went to name his new lobster boat after he lost his first one in a big storm, by the time it was ready for the water he was just about all in, and he named it the word that best suited the occasion, "Bollocks!" - including the exclamation mark! I hope that doesn't offend too many ears over there across the pond. Here it's not a Naughty Word, but our friends, who are from England, lived right on the water, looking out onto the harbor at Paul's boat and they were mortified seeing the name of the boat in bit letters across the transom! For the whole story in my blog, go here:


Someone had asked me how he came to name his boat that name, so I did a blog about it! That someone was my former boss, a doctor who used to be a Radiologist at a hospital where I worked!


What a lovely post, thank you!

Brenda Cupryna

beautifully written. I love the waterfall story


What a lovely kitty she is - they add so much to a home, enjoy her.

Yes, here's to a year full of gentle enjoyment! I can just imagine L.B.'s expression! A funny memory for you both. I still have the cough/sinus issue going on 4 weeks now, everyone you meet is coughing. We were lucky enough to have a few inches of snow over the weekend, it makes everything magical. Enjoy the day!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


I love reading your blog not only because of crochet, but also how lovely and warm and comfy your home seems to be.


Another lovely piece, Lucy...I always enjoy your little day to day stories..keep them coming!
Happy New Year to you and yours

Your blog continually reminds me to enjoy and savor the little moments in life. Thank you so much for that gift.


Happy new year Lucy, I hope 2017 is magical xxBrenda


Can't quite get my head around you encouraging your little boy to swear. What a bizarre thing to do. Did you take too much cold medication, Lucy? Removed your website from my blogroll. Bye!

A Happy New Year to you and your family... and the cat (much part of the family though). Get well. Evelyne

The phases of life we go through with children is lovely, challenging and short lived. Your teen not wanting to come on walks is totally normal, love the way you have accepted it graciously. Love your photos of the landscape Lucy, quite soothing to the soul.


I am laughing out loud about Little B's free period for naughty words, haha!
