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

Hand holding: resonating and beautiful words Lucy !
My youngest is 10 , we hold hands always, ( her choice). I treasure it ! Xxx


You will treasure those walks for a very long time. I have four children and with my youngest I would think "will this be the last time I rock him to sleep?" "Will this be the last time he jumps into my arms?" It's wonderful to watch them grow up but those sweet moments are a treasure. I went and read your post from two years ago. My heart goes out to you. Thank you for sharing.

They grow up so quickly as you say. Your grandchildren do too which is even sadder.

It takes a long time to cope with such loss, I lost my Mam nearly 50 years ago, I still miss her & am sad my children never got to know her. You don't get over it but you cope. Enjoy your own family & times like you've described, they are so precious. Thank you for sharing them.


Wonderful photos - I love this time of year too. Your story about your "little one" brings tears to my eyes ... mt littles are 10 and 12 - sometimes still hold mama's hand 💖


I think I will copy you! Sounds so lovely. There's nothing near as pretty around here but there's a few nice places to wander to. :)


I so enjoy seeing your beautiful photos and reading about your days. Your posts always touch my heart. Thank you for sharing. Enjoy!


Wonderful post, Lucy. Thank you for sharing. x


Lovely photos and I so understand the handholding. My 8 year old granddaughter used to snuggle and then she quit but it is slowly returning. I am thankful for each small gesture I get!


I really understand you... thanks for sharing!


Beautiful Lucy, thank you so much for sharing xx💕


Beautiful Lucy, brought tears to my eyes. I'm not a mum but I could feel your happiness in that little gesture from your son. How wonderful for you xx


Another beautiful post....makes my heart sing. Only yesterday I sat looking out of my window at the same houses I have looked out on for more than 30years....but then I received your post and am lifted up. Thank you.
BTW I now have my hand held by my Grandson. ..really precious and unexpected.
God bless you and your family.

Once again your blog has made a lovely inspiring start to my day. You live in a beautiful area as do I (North Devon). Unfortunately I need a car journey first to access the parts I love, but at least I have them.So breakfast first and then the dog and I will go explore!! Thank you for your blog Lucy, it is soooo much appreciated.

Precious moments indeed! It's been a long time since any hand holding here and I still miss it. Have a wonderful weekend! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Just gorgeous Lucy...loved this story xxxx


What a beautiful experience in every way. I love your photos and the talk and emotion that accompanies them. Thanks for sharing, Lucy. Big hugs to you and your entire family. Here in the San Francisco Bay Area we haven't had this much rain in May since 1957 when I was 5 years old. More is expected tomorrow. I'm not complaining after so many years of drought. The plants are loving it and it looks equally green here.

You have brought tears to my eyes. Pictures are beautiful, too!

Miss Daisy

What lovely life you have.

Winwick Mum

Love this xx


What a lovely post. My youngest, who was always so huggy, doesn't hold my hand any more at ten, but he's still quite cuddly which is nice. I hope you have a lovely half term. CJ xx

Beautiful photos and words. So evocative. Thank you for a window into your world - you also lift my spirts when I read your blog. I remember those days with my two little girls, now grown women, one recently married. Fortunately they still hold my hand occasionally when we are out together, which is always a wonderful moment each time it happens. Thank you also for inspiring me to start crocheting some of your delightful blankets... I’m now well and truly hooked!

Nina Kellock

You can almost smell that garlic from the photo. Must get out to my favourite picking spot a couple of miles down the road, thanks for the reminder.
That feel of a child's hand in yours, first your own child then later, if you're lucky, a grandchild's hand. So special, takes your breath away doesn't it? I get the same feeling when my husband reaches for my hand when we are out, as I did when he first held it over forty years ago. Some feelings and emotions are beyond words.

Thank you for gifting us by sharing this precious season in your life with us, through this beautiful post, Lucy. xx

Teresa Kasner

What a sweet and inspiring story, dear Lucy. You are so wise to treasure each minute of your littlest one's young years. As you know with your two older kids, those precious times with your little ones are all too fleeting. I've been sewing in ends of my Dune blanket this afternoon.. just to keep them tidy as I crochet more rows. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
