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

Doing something similar here kids off for the week and I've 3 days off work. Got a bit of crochet done


I wish Winters in Texas were this wintery! Was really warm today & gonna be 88F/31C tomorrow. Isn't that even warmer than yall's Spring!? Lol Anyway, am drooling over Moorland and ready with my yarn packs!!! But have my first grandchild for my oldest daughter of ten of my own coming soon..... gotta finish the blankie for her baby, so excited!! & now talk of hydrangeas 💜💚💙💚💗💚 REALLY!?
Ohmygoodness & yay!!! They are my favourites. So desperate, I actually planted some in my garden last Summer... Needless to say, they turn into CrispyKritters in the Texas Hill Country Sun! Cannot wait to see it. Thanks for you lovely blog! I never comment on blogs, actually rarely read them. Yours is so refreshingly sweet💞


Your blog is such a nice start for a day. Iris smiling and heart warming. Enjoy your break.

Your warm fireside winter time with your family sounds wonderful. I'm excited for you to fly to see your parents and brother for a bit.... you will enjoy it, I'm sure. I look forward to seeing some coastal photos! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


As always, Lucy, your blog is a treat to read! Thank you so much for all the work you put in on our behalf, you are creative to the Nth degree, and we appreciate it! Enjoy your little break away with family, taking the Hydrangea blanket with you, I presume. Many congratulations and kudos to you on your awards, well deserved I believe.

Enjoy your break with family. If you see my Auntie Dawn, say hello for me. Lol I'm still on week one. Don't get a lot of spare time to crochet and quiet time, which I need to do it. Roll on 2018 Yarndale, planning a trip to UK again. Will come say hello again. Jackie Perth Australia

I have been hooking away in a C2C with my Westfield snuggled by my side. Nothing like it. I have a cousin in Weymouth so you have put the need for a visit in my mind

Pam Wilson

Have a lovely break with your family you deserve some time to enjoy them... and we all look forward to seeing your lovely pictures and reading about your adventures. Thanks for sharing them!!

Anne Marie

I have watched but not commented for a while. I can't wait to see your new project. Have a great trip to 'The Sarf'


I'm jealous of your walking area, its gorgeous!


Hope you have a lovely rest in Dorset, my home county (though I was born in Yorkshire only spent my first three years there...) I think it's the prettiest one, not biased at all! Can't wait for Friday's blog to finish my blanket x


Enjoy your trip! It's good to get some time away. We'll all be here Friday happily chirping away over our borders! xx :)

Rowena Corlett

Lovely image of you and your family relaxing together! I look forward to seeing the border but I won't be doing it for a while - I am only just finishing part 2 but enjoying it so.......Much! Only need to finish it to be ready for the hydrangea blanket and that won't be for a while so no rush! Enjoy your little holiday xxxxx

I love that I have visited the Dorset Coast twice now...2 Summer's in a row really so I can picture what you will be seeing. I have to say that the color of the water there is something to behold.
I was in Bellingham, Washington this past weekend and the light was hitting the bay just right and I turned to my husband and said....that is what the water looks like when I've been to Swanage and the area around it. Just breathtaking!
Enjoy you time and yes please throw a pebble in for me :-)


Just a lovely post - makes me want to go down and start our fire and do some work on my blanket right NOW!(Your midmorning treats always look so yummy!)

Ann Adams

Such a lovely blog. Brought back memories of when my children were still at school. I so enjoyed having them at home so that we could spend relaxed time together. I can't crochet (I'm going to try this year), but am currently knitting socks which are just the best to knit and also wear 😀. Enjoy Dorset, nothing like sea air.

I am rushing to catch up with the CAL due to my own very little person taking up a lot of my time. I have loved this CAL, it has been just the tonic I have needed at this hectic time. Thank you.

Jools Morgan-Jones

Have a lovely break, Lucy, and travel safely xx Looking forward to the hydrangea blanket! 😊

Tracy Sutton

Another great blog which is why you are an award winner. Congratulations xxx


Another one of your great blogs, Lucy!
Am looking forward to Friday, to see the final
"chapter" on the Moorland blanket...

Hope to do the Cosy one in due course..you tempted me into sock making in the meantime with the Winwick ladies!!

See and enjoy your Dorset stay with your family..

Thanks for everything!

I too loved days like those when my girls were at school. It is sad the cal is ending, looking forward to the hydrangeas. Have a great break


Have a lovely time down here in Dorset,Lucy. I was sharing a slice of cake and drinking a latte on the beach at Burton Bradstock on Sunday. I kept thinking of you, so I'm glad you're going to get a seaside 'fix' xx

Annie C

I'm sooooooo wishing for a trip awaaaaaaaay . . . Have fun visiting your family in Dorset!

Gillian Booth

All sounding blissful and as family life should be and indeed was for us.I always loved school holidays when the routine disappeared. Enjoy your break.


Thank you Lucy lovely post I am doing the border on my cupcake blanket done in granny stripe it's looking great I started it a year ago and somehow it turned from a single bed size to a double ! ( not good at counting ) ! Love the new socks love Jenny from Cornwall xx
