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

Everything you posted, dinner al fresco, the beautiful countryside, your beautiful yarny creations, all of it was wonderful. But, the rhubarb crumble with ICE CREAM brought back memories of the rhubarb plant in the backyard where I grew up, and my Dad grew up!, and the strawberry/rhubarb pies my Mom made every summer. It was Grandma's plant, and if its still there, is over 100 years old!!

Thank you , saving up to visit your beautiful area. Taking the new Dreamliner 17 hours straight from Perth. at least if l get brave enough.

I was in London week before last, visiting from California. I was going to come up to Skipton and visit for a few days, thought it would be so fun to come to your Crochet group. Unfortunately it was on the bank holiday weekend when the boat Festival was happening there and I didn’t see one hotel room available. Maybe next time!


Your picnic sounds wonderful! xx

This has been a most refreshing post--walks in the woods, stitchery and lovely colorful crochet. All the things I love, too. Thank you, Lucy, from the tropics.


Thanks Lucy for once again sharing a window on your world in beautiful Yorkshire I can almost smell that wild garlic at Bolton Abbey. Love that you took your rhubarb crumble and ice cream on your picnic, I’m sure you know that will be a treasured memory for you all. The best part about memories is creating them❤️ Hope the sun continues to shine on your world. Take care ❤️

Please don’t stop posting pictures of your gorgeous countryside! I live in the arid Southwest of the United States, and while I love it here, I do miss lush, green, watery vistas sometimes. Thank you!

Hi Lucy! You've just given me the Mandala "bug". I must say also your description of homemaking is very much like mine! I so enjoy your blog and smile each & every time I read a post. Thanks for all your inspiration...and thanks for being you!


Ricorumi is fabulous and my local yarn shop gave me a free pattern book in return for making them a rabbit to put on their display. It is lovely stuff and I love the colours. Definitely shouldn't be confined to amigurumi! Enjoy!

Hello Lucy, once again you have given me a wonderful start to my day. The photo's are stunning as always,and the beautiful Mandala has tempted me to have a go!! Enjoy your beautiful weather, we are moving into Winter here in Central Queensland. 😊🇦🇺


Lovely as always, all that yarn and thread. I, too, love cross stitch. And your photos of the greenery never tire, Lucy. You're always a bright spot in my day! And here on the NorthEast Coast of the U.S., we've just experienced green all over too!!! Spring, so lush and promising! Thank you as always Lucy!
