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

I absolutely love reading your blogs Lucy, and especially appreciate what you do. xx


I love your photos, especially the ones of the canals and the chocolate treats.


I named my cat “Sweet William”


Loved this, it reminded me of posts when I first used to follow years ago.


Glad you made a trip over to the Netherlands, please do come back again!! There is lots more to see than just Amsterdam.

Your posts have exactly the same appeal as those magazine summer editions! when we went to Yarndale the other year we loved walking along the canal, seeing the colourful narrow boats. Skipton is a lovely town.


Just had to say how much I enjoy your photos and your beautiful way with color. I'm just about finished with your Sweet Pea blanket, Posy version, and will have a tough time giving it to the friend for whom it was intended. I'm on the verge or ordering your Dune blanket yarn pack too, all my favorite colors in one place!! Hope you get to the coast and have a lovely time....Jean


This makes me want to go to the sea. I lived near a river until 2011 when we moved inland. I do miss the water.


Magazine reading + Summer time = bliss! I love this reminder to enjoy the little moments of life. Thank you for writing. Also, I finally bought my first attic24 yarn pack and I am LOVING it! :-) Dune blanket pack in colorwash Neat Ripple. First blanket that I am keeping for myself instead of giving away!


Absolutely love your post. I'm from Australia where its very dark and dreary at the moment. Your words and photos invoke a gentle calmness. Soula

Thank you so much for your ripple blanket suggestion I am well on my way with the project


I have enjoyed reading your blogs for the last 7 years but have never been brave enough to comment. I love the images you post and your commentary on life. I appreciate that you have your times of stress, like us all, but I wanted to say what an oasis of tranquility your blog creates. Thank you.


Thank you for sharing your delightful week.


Oh your views (photos) are so wonderful to see. And the story of you and Little B is delightful. Thank you for sharing.


O Lucy, what a beautiful read....I have been..there with you . Thank you so much.


Amsterdam, how wonderful, I shall look forward to hearing more about it. Those rice cakes are new to me too, I shall keep a lookout for them. There is a new narrowboat cafe on the canal that we go to sometimes, it's a great idea isn't it. Hope you have a good week Lucy. CJ xx


Love the photo of your neighbourhood. The house in the foreground looks like the bed and breakfast Nola and I stayed during Yarndale. Such fabulous memories. Xx


We all need time out and even with time out you keep so busy but def time out from computers etc helps. Oh those rice cakes do look delicious must look out for them.Beautiful photos as ever thankyou x

I found so many joyous things in this post, Lucy. To buy such luscious ice cream off a canal tug would be a dream for me. I've told you many times how fascinated I am by your canals and canalboats. I'm glad to see you're taking it slower and enjoying being in the moment. Life goes by so fast.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)

You can tell you're in need of a sea fix - there's a bit of a water-related theme going on in your photos! :) xx

Heather Coady

Your blogs are so inspiringly relaxing just love them when I come to bed!
