About Me

  • Hello! 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.

The only thing I know about moors as an American is that at night a big black dog comes out and gets you and then Sherlock Holmes has to come solve your murder. Looks a lot nicer in the day time!

Jenny Young

I think a sneak peak of an inspiration photo would be fun....let us guess the colors from your photo.

Janet Dudek

Your blogs about hikes through the hills and seashore are wonderful. Your photos in this one reminded me of a question I wanted to ask you. We were in Yorkshire in September 2017 (travelling from Canada). While walking near a reservoir I noticed the small circular building out in the middle of the water with the walkway out to it from shore. What is that? We also noticed a stone building along our walk - very old and clearly abandoned. It looked like the reservoir keeper's house in your photo so perhaps that mystery has been solved.

I love going on your walks with you so thanks for sharing . The colors of your moorland blanket really matches the landscape . You must be a proud mama. A sneak peek please and enjoy your week.

Susan rees

Sneaky peak please! I love the autumn knowing there is a CAL on the way. I'm working on the dune blanket at the moment. It's cold today and I'm tempted to wrap up in the moorland to keep warm. X

Heather Coady

So love walking in the countryside as well and been planning to do the moorland but will wait and see what next cal is! I must keep going and try and finish my version of Dune!

Please tell us at least if it will be something colorful or something more smooth going? My energy levels would be dying for some colorful right now. I would love to try some colorwash this time, if possible. Yes, colorful is something I am longing for!!

Janet Clark

A little peek please, it will give us something to look forward to. Love the Moorland blanket, the colours are beautiful.

Cathy

Please keep it a secret, so it will feel like Christmas at the great reveal.

Sara S

Please, please, please give us a sneaky peak, the build up of excitement is very much part of the blanket journey (for me at least!) x

Susan Oliver

I am hoping it will feature the colour of the berries on the Rowan Tree and the background colours of the blue water and the different shades of green on the moors behind the rowan Tree.

Camcas

That house looks like a set from a Harry Potter movie!

Barbara Buchanan

Please, please, please tell us! ☺️❤️

As a Yorkshire exile living in Kent I love your pictures of this beautiful county . And the blankets of course !

CJ

Oh my goodness, it's beautiful up there. And it really is amazing how the colours in your moorland blanket tie in so perfectly. They're beautifully natural. I always want to know everything at once and I'm absolutely hopeless at guessing, so I'd love to know where your next inspiration is coming from. I'm wondering if it's something summery. I know what you mean about the power of something sweet. When we were coming down Snowdon a couple of years ago the littlest boy was on his last legs until we reached the halfway house and I bought him some sweets. He actually ran down the last bit. Amazing. It's a similar transition here, to just three or four people walking at weekends. We're still getting used to it. The littlest boy really likes a brother along if possible, to make it more fun, so it's a bit of a balancing act at the moment. CJ xx

Hi Lucy.. I loved all the moor images and I'd LOVE to see more of the old house up there. I can just imagine the stories it could tell.

I vote for you to tell us what you're planning as it gives us all more time to decide if we want to join the CAL and get excited about it.

Have a fabulous week, my friend. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Pam Kane

I love your designs and color choices! I have most of your patterns and purchased colorways thru Wool Warehouse for them. Thank you so much for freely sharing your works of heART!

Jacqui

Lovely I can feel the fresh air from here. OOOOh I dont know if I want to know or not oooer my daughter now always buys me the cal for my December birthday present so am excited about this he he

Gretchen Weaver

Thank you for sharing this post. It was so lovely to see your moors, so different from my home, farm land in the Great Lakes area of northern Indiana.

Tammy

I too am noticing the colors around me much more and apparently my Creative Mind is kicking into overdrive because I'm always looking at colors and selecting which SSDK color it matches and how to put them together! You are a true inspiration and I am sooo grateful I chanced across one of your patterns years ago and followed the link back to your blog! And yes, unless you're into torturing your followers , ;) please share what your mind is cooking up for us in January!January is such a looooong way away!:)

Jo

Dahlias I wonder ?
Bright and rich colours ?
A little sneaky peek?

Jane

This was such a lovely post to pop up on my FB feed. It took me back to my childhood. We had a static caravan on the N. Yorks moors and I spent nearly every weekend there as a child. Wonderful.

Lucy@Attic24

Our walk was about 5.5 miles, it took around 3 hours so not too long really, but the uphill stretches were pretty steep!

Lizzy Dillingham

It looks like a very long hike, how far did you walk? Def share your inspiration, pls.

I could see revisiting this vista in a more autumn palette, deeper browns, lime green, red rowan, purple of the heather, grey water, pale blue sky.[sounds awful but with the right yarns?]
