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

That's great.


Love your blog. Smiling as I read it, some similarities to my own life. Also 3 kids and slightly crafty - kids are now teens and dabble in craft not particularly successful. I also had my 3rd for my 40th birthday and find myself wondering where the years have gone as I celebrate? my 50th and assess where I'm at in life. Still forget I'm not 34 - remember as I get up in the morning on wet days. :)


Such a bleak beach.


Lucy I turned 50 in July and it’s such a wonderful way to re evaluate your life. It’s like a new decade to have a go at growing learning and starting something new isn’t it?
A new chance, a bit like a brand new year to set new resolutions but we get a 10 year block x
Happy birthday and Thankyou for sharing your beautiful corner of the world.

Belated Happy Birthday wishes, that was a perfect way to celebrate your 50th birthday!I found reaching 50 wasn't as bad as 40. It makes me realise how long I have been reading your blog and like you my life changed considerably after blogging! Sarah x

Many happy returns!So nice that you had Greek dinner on your birthday!AriadnefromGreece!


Happy Birthday! Your day sounds to be lovely. I am a frequent reader of your blog and never comment but that is changing - I will be making it a point to comment more often if only with "hi". So, if you see a lonely little "hi" in the comments you will know it is me.


Happy birthday, my dear Lucy. A big hug from the south of Spain.

Love your blog even though I do not crochet. I am a quilter who loves your color sense.
I read another blog that showed some old wall hangings that used crocheted animals and thought of you. Here is a link to it. The crocheted animals were on the October 19th posting.

Happy Birthday! The 50s are pretty wonderful. I moved from the States to London that year, and couldn't be happier to still be here after 20 years to celebrate my 70th birthday next month. I am only a 1-year follower to your blog, but thank you for giving me back the thrill of crochet after many years. I am a bit slow . . . January's autumn ripple is nearly half way, but I still love it and it was much too hot this summer to sit under a blanket, so I have picked it up again in the proper season.


Congratulations on your 50th. Wishing you lots more happy years.

Dear Lucy

Your birthday celebrations looked just perfect, my kind of day. I love your blog and meeting you at Yarndale was the icing on the cake, so for the pun!
Looking forward to following you in your new decade.
Thank you so much for all your inspiration and enthusiasm.
Lots of love and best wishes
Lesley xx

Happiest birthday wishes Lucy. Your birthday celebrations look absolutely delightful.


Happy 50th Lucy! You are right , your fifties are a fabulous decade. Your blog was the first I read, and I think it was pretty early on, I caught up on the archives anyway. You rekindled my love of crochet and got me thinking about colour , so thank you Lucy, keep rocking!


Another beautiful tale from you, Lucy...

So happy for you..enjoy your year ahead!

Happy Birthday Lucy'
I started reading your lovely blog one rainy Sunday afternoon in October2009.
By the end of that afternoon I had crocheted a square. Here we are in 2018
and I am just starting anew blanket for our first grandchild who is just 3 weeks
old. Enjoy your next decade Love Sarahxxx.


A belated happy birthday to you! Thank you for sharing your day with us! Some beautiful scenery and lovely writing for all of us to enjoy!
