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

Extremely really very good awesome photos
i love the photos you shared the content is too good


We've just walked around Carsington reservoir and got the same sense of peace as you😊


I suppose we shouldn't complain about the lack of rain when they are receiving such awful weather in Texas, but I have enjoyed the August weather in the UK.


I am currently almost done with my Hydranga blanket; loving every minute of it and starting your Harmony Blanket asap (grand daughters birthday presents). Also I just got my Burda Style Magazine in the mail the other day and one of the childrens models,Page 57, is holding your Hydranga blankets as a prop. The credit goes to "privately owned". How cool is that!


Could I just ask, should I put a hanging loop on my Yarndale crocheted heart? Is that the way they are going to be displayed? Or is it optional? Thanks:)

Vanessa is sadly missed, but there is something reassuring that we can share our appreciation and our memories. Although I only knew her though her blog, she was a 'feature' in my landscape. I was thinking of her creativity and the sadness of her passing the other day. Thank you for bringing us together to share our feelings on her legacy. Sine Robertson


I walked around Grimwith when I came to Yarndale last year - got half way round and the torrential rain started... I must admit I didn't take in too much of the scenery after that but my pace went up a notch so it was good exercise :) I love your photos - it certainly is a dramatic place x


I never knew how beautiful England actually is untill I started following your blog with your beautiful pictures. I always enjoy taking a walk with you trough the most stunning places. And I love the way you write, such wonderful use of your language. Thank you for that!
Take care.

Greetings from Holland, Madhurya

I very much enjoyed going along with you on your walk around the lake. I agree with you on the grasses, I adore them, also. I miss Vanessa too.. and it still breaks my heart that she left us too early, I mourn all the years of her art that the world will miss out on. I cannot imagine the depth of despair that would drive you to the point she got to. I got a set of her cards with her artwork on them. I'm so glad I did. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


I absolutely love taking walks with you, Lucy. Denny and I often hike in vast unpopulated areas like this. At these times, we feel almost like we "own" all around us since our eyes are the only ones beholding all the beauty at that particular moment in time. What a privilege!


la balade des deux moutons est tellement paisible, c'est l'idée que je m'en fait au détour d'un chemin.

Stunning photos and you write so beautifully Lucy. So looking forward to my little trip to Yorkshire at the end of September 😄🐏

So beautiful!


I just got back from a vacation to Door County, Wisconsin and saw beautiful fields of grasses - I love them, too, and know exactly what you mean. Not sure why I love them so much, but I do!

Lovely photographs Lucy. Vanessa was such a talented person, so sad to lose her creativity.


Those beautifull pictures and colour will give us new coloured granny-blanket, won't they ? It'll be a pleasure to see how it'll inspired you ! My best one : a grey, dark purple, "yellow" of dry grass (terre de sienne naturelle?) , a light blue of the lac, and the green of the fresh grass...
Your landscape is really beautifull ! Thank you to share it with me in the french alpes.


Vanessa's blog was indeed blogging at its best. A beautiful tranquil-looking walk, and I absolutely love the carved stone. I'm a big fan of all things calligraphy, I'm always on the lookout for fonts and exquisite lettering. A high level of unfitness here too. I had to run after the puppy the other day when he thought I'd gone in the opposite direction and shot off to find me. I honestly felt as though I was running through treacle. Have a good bank holiday Monday Lucy. CJ xx


Lovely post. I was looking back at Vanessa's blog archives this past week .. inspirational indeed. Grateful that her family have left it up.


I was thinking of Vanessa a few days ago when I came across a couple of gift tags which she sent me when I ordered a 'Bunny Girl' picture to celebrate the arrival of my granddaughter.
Such talent - lost.


So many beautiful pictures. So many of them look like they would be great inspiration for quilts. Thanks for taking us for a walk with you.


What a wonderful post! Your photos are so beautiful and your words so thoughtful. I love it when just a ray of sunshine breaks through on a cloudy day. Thank you.

I find nature lovely in all her forms. I think those are the same dreaded yellow flowers here, for the same reasons. Oh yes, Vanessa is sorely missed.x

Jools Morgan-Jones

Beautiful, as ever, Lucy. We took a guided walk around the St Anne's nature reserve this morning, learning of the local flora and delighting in tiny, gold-coloured frogs who were flopping about in the undergrowth xx
