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

Lucy , you were in my neck of the woods. I hope you got to see Ripping Yarns , a lovely little wool shop . I think someone in there the other day was making your moorland blanket


So excited - this is my "neck of the woods" I am at this beach - just along from Saltburn - nearly every weekend. Glad you enjoyed. x

Happy birthday Lucy!! So glad you and your hubbie had this opportunity to get away for a little break. There is nothing quite like being by the sea to recharge your batteries, no matter the weather. In many ways I prefer those grey blustery days as it is more exhilarating walking and the sound of those crashing waves is just magic compared to the calmer days! Have a great week,
Helen x


Happy Birthday Lucy what a lovely blog post x

Hannelore Farrell

Happy Anniversary to you and J and Happy Birthday to you Lucy! I'm so glad you got to get away for a couple of days. Your description of where you are and what you're seeing makes me feel like I'm right there. You have such a talent for writing Lucy. Thanks for bringing us along and able so see your beautiful pictures, it must have been a wonderful trip. Hanna from New Orleans.


Happy birthday Lucy!


Lucy, thanks for this wonderful post. First, Happy Anniversary and Birthday to you (one of my sisters shares your birthday, but 12 years older).

I lived by the sea as a toddler (unfortunately, I can't remember that time, but it sure imprinted on me). From age 19 I spent most of the next 33 years on Vancouer Island and South Pender Island (in the Gulf Islands of BC). I'm well inland now, but it's part of my soul forever. Your post brought back so many good memories! I could see, hear, smell, even taste the air. Wonderful! I'd have to take those climbs a bit slowly now (until I'm back in shape again), but I'd still love to visit anywhere that is so evocative of my earlier life. Thanks for all the photos, too. I'm glad that you had that time, especially after the work of Yarndale. Have a wonderful year, Lucy. Hugs from Canada ~ Linne

Sounds like a refreshing, relaxing yet energetic weekend. Happy Birthday and anniversary. I can hear the sound of the sea in my mind as you write. Lovely.

We leave in 4 days for 10 days by the Pacific Ocean in our 32 foot caravan! I am so looking forward to our time there, just the 2 of us. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Totally glorious! I visited the same places when I was home visiting my parents this summer. Your post has reminded me of special times.


Happy birthday. Happy anniversary celebration with your weekend away.
I do love visiting the sea when I come up north to visit my daughter, son in law and his family. Especially when it is Yarndale as well!

Awww Lucy, the memories you've just brought back for me is tugging at my heart again. Last year I visited Saltburn for the first time and loved it. Didn't see the charm bracelet though. Your walk sounds absolutely wonderful. When in UK we usually visit Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay & Staithes and I find all of them just so beautiful. Happy birthday for tomorrow & have a lovely day. Ooh, next year is a big "0"!!!! So is my hubby's, but we are a little more advanced than you (lol). Have a wonderful day, take care & huggles.


I love readying your blog Lucy. Your pictures today were absolutely wonderful. I would love to go on that walk along the sea.


WONDERFUL, Lucy! and richly deserved....

Thanks as ever for sharing..xx

Margaret Simpson
