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

Love the post! I feel the need to go traveling somewhere.


Happy New Year, I read the book you mentioned back in the summer and really enjoyed it. Looking forward to following your blog during 2019 I find it fascinating. I envy you having your family all there. My two daughters have grown up and are living their own lives now.


Happy New Year Lucy, hoping there will be many more idle chitter chatters x


Wishing you a new year filled with peace, joy, and happiness.


Happy new year Lucy to you and your family.
I have brought the hggye book last autum. A really lovely book.
Believe me your defiantly hggye :)
Have fun this year, look forward to your post.


I Wishing you and all the family a very happy New Year. Thanks for your amazing work and inspiration.I looking forward to starting the Sweet Pea CAL. I Love your blog!


This Christmas holiday has seemed long to me, which has been super nice, despite working a bit over the Christmas period. I like the slow days where they just roll into the next. I've just let Christmas 'be' this year. I usually get very stressed in the run up to it which makes me annoyed as I want to enjoy it so much every year. This year I just relaxed as much as I could and enjoyed the three Bears' having fun. All the decs are now packed away and the house has had a detox and I feel clear in my head for the New Year. I always like that feeling!

Happy New Year to you Lucy. I hope it is a year full of life's sweet blessings and awash with beautiful creativity! Take care lovely, Ness xxxx


Happy New Year, Lucy! I hope your 2019 is filled with delight and creative pursuits!

I won't be partaking in the Sweet Pea CAL this year as I am working on a Temperature Blanket! However, I will most likely purchase the Sweet Pea pack and work on the blanket in my own time as the pack has the prettiest colors I ever have seen!


Lucy and family, Thank you for another year of enjoyment reading your interesting blog and delighting in the wonderful photos. Wishing you all a healthy and happy New Year! Big Hugs from Kimmy ♥

Happy New Year to you & your family. Thanks for such a lovely post, take care & enjoy the rest of the break with the children.


Happy New Year, Lucy and family! I have been looking at the Hygge book as well but haven't gotten it...yet! I hope it's a good read! I love making amigurumi and find stitching their facial features to be the hardest part as well! Thanks so very much for taking the time to let us peek into your little world!

We're staying with my Mum in Yeovil this week and went to West Bay today. It was so warm and sunny, a beautiful day. The sea was like a mill pond - most unusual for West Bay. I always think of you when we go.Looking forward to the CAL. Happy New Year!

Thank you for a beautiful and warming post this morning. Coffee in hand, sitting in my recliner with the bird singing peacefully next to me, your gentle and positive greetings made me forget all the horrible news and events that squeeze the life and happiness from my soul. With your post, I took a short vacation into peace and will continue in that feeling by not reading any more news. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Happy New Year!


A very happy new year to you too Lucy.

Sweet greetings,


I read the hygge book. Your blog is all about hygge! First thing I thought while reading the book was your blog. Crackling fires, cozy projects, colorful flowers...You live hygge!
Have a Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you and all who read your blog. It is a refreshing peak into family life in the UK; just a bit different than living in Omaha, Nebraska USA.

Happy New Year! Love your pictures, especially the small waterfall. Wish I could go on walks with you and yours. You live in such a beautiful area. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who enjoys the simple, little things in life. Love your mantle and the fire, so comforting. A Blessed year to you and your family.

You inspire me to get out and do more walking. Happy New Year, and thank you!


Happy New Year Lucy. xx
