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

Huge congrats Lucy and very well deserved! Your blog is always stunning, colourful and inspiring. You were the first crochet blog I every came across when my crochet addiction was just beginning. I love popping back to see what you've been up to and getting a dose of colourful gorgeousness!

Hello Lucy what an interesting visit you had to London. The boat trip with afternoon tea sounds lovely, especially the scones. I too would be interested in the name of your hotel. Last spring we stayed at the St Pancras hotel for our 50th anniversary, but would love to stay in that area again, but at a slightly cheaper rate. Have just booked a week in Skipton for the end of September next year.



Another wonderful blog..thank you for sharing all those fantastic photographs..really enjoyed seeing all those fabulous buildings..

Here's to much more success coming your way...

Congratulations, well done you!
I loved your enthusiasm for modern buildings in London and the contrast with nearby older structures. I'll look at those buildings in a different way now. Any chance of your divulging the name of the hotel you stayed in? We're traveling to London next spring and would love the name of a tried and true hotel choice. In the past we've had some wonderful rooms and a couple of broom closets.
Thanks for the London tour and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I'm just starting to plan a yarn/embroidery/knitting/Royal based trip - what hotel do you stay at? What suggestions might you share with me? I'll be traveling from the US. BTW - CONGRATS on your awards and well done! LOVE your blog and patterns. XO

In 1969, my family was in London for 3 days. My 2 sisters and I randomly chose to take the Underground to Tower Hill, where we saw the Tower bridge. We asked the guard if we could walk across the top. He replied, "No, it is closed because too many people were dropping themselves off the bridge." All these years later, your photo brought back memories of a wonderful trip when I was a teenager. I wish to return to London one day.

I've sent a nice big virtual hug back to you for keeping me entertained, educated, and thoroughly enthralled with your written word. So thankful! So happy for your awards, also. Well deserved for sure.

A lovely blog, you certainly deserve your awards Lucy, you bring happiness to so many. Congrats to you both on 25yrs too, and of course your 50th Birthday. I would love to have bumped into you and Christine, on your walks or at the Palace, how exciting that would be to meet you both.
I dont actually feel any older and love my crochet etc but we have been married 55yrs, 56 in Feb !! you still have a lot to look fwd too !!


What a fantastic and full day out, and many congratulations on the awards, they are very well deserved. Can't believe you went straight on to another full day out as well! I would have been exhausted. The boat trip looks brilliant, I am a huge fan of afternoon tea. Congratulations on 25 years of marriage, that is quite an achievement. I shall look forward to seeing photos of beautiful Wensleydale. CJ xx


Sounds like an awesome time. Congratulations on the awards. Well deserved.

Congratulations on your awards and your 25 years with J!Your trip to London looks fun and a good way to celebrate some of your achievements. Sarah x


Urgh iPad! I would never ever type luv! Love*


Happy belated birthday to you Lucy! Glad you had such a fun time in London, I luv it.
Thank *you* for all the lovely blog posts over the last thousand years. xx


Congratulations on well-deserved awards! And what a lovely tour of London.

I am considering a visit next year and you have added several must-see places I hadn't thought of - thank you!

And I too would like to know the hotel name, please?


I love London too and I’m thinking it’s time for another visit after reading your blog. Congratulations on your awards, you deserve them. I love reading your blog, your pictures and homey writing are wonderful.


Sounds like a momentous birthday for you! Congratulations on your awards! I find it funny that you love the modern buildings, here in the States I find that I love the older ones because of the history, although our oldest are under 300 years, a blink of an eye compared to yours! I find modern architecture a bit jarring when counterposed with the beauty and workmanship of the older buildings. Some are beautiful, but seem so intrusive. Happy birthday and I am wishing you a happy year filled with love, light and creativity.
