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

Vest on - good girl!! Mine stay firmly in place until mid July at the earliest and are usually only off until the beginning of September! And I’m not even joking!!


I so enjoy your posts..... here in Sydney, Australia we are in Autumn, my favourite season, soon it will be winter, which is mild here compared to yours, altho we still complain about the cold! Trying to do lots of sewing, and finish things..... while being housebound.... missing visiting friends, and sewing groups. Keep safe...


Lovely to enjoy your post today Lucy. Helps fill in my day while inside a city pad. So much colour and love to my little place here.

I found your site years ago,6 or 7 years, quite by accident. the colors are so cheerful and your little fire place and cozy home, just make me happy. Like a distant friend, I stop by now and then to see how you're doing. Right now Im watching CNN , reading your site and about to have some Hershey kisses.


Hi Lucy, thanks for spreading joy🙂🙂
I’ve decided to crotchet some Charity Bears 🐻 using your pattern, thanks for sharing that ages ago💕💖 Sherin, Sydney, Aus


I love reading your posts Lucy.. If the rest of the world is turning upside down I always know your blog will set me right.. Love Love reading about your daily life and seeing your awesome pictures! I've seen lots of rainbow hooky going on in many posts and it's really making me want to start one. The projects I'm working on aren't happy and full of color like I apparently need right now so I'm going to be digging out some rainbow colors and starting one tonight hopefully! I've missed the Sweet Pea stitch and the Woodland so just have to decide which to do it in.. :) Children here will be going on an Easter Egg hunt and will be watching for Easter Eggs in our front windows.. It's pretty amazing that all around the world lots of children will be doing the same things in the next few weeks while we have to hunker down and stay home.. Thanks for everything Lucy, especially for a bit of normal in a chaotic, stressful world!

Such a nice post. Such a cozy nest your family has. Where did you find that wonderful tree with birds and flowers on your mantle? I can think of another mantle that would look wonderful with it.


Thanks for this. Just what is needed, you and Winwick Mum give my spirits a lift. Bought Sweet pea blanket for CAL but life got in the way. Picked it up today and the simple repetitive hooking is so soothing, thanks for that as well.

Love reading your blogs Lucy!! Looking at your pictures you share with us are so enjoyable when we're having dreary day here in Ontario, Canada 🌞🌝☀️

Another lovely homely blog, always feels good to read ,
we are enjoying our time too, being a bit lazy and having early morning walks, lucky still having lots of sunshine, very eerie walking so few cars and people as we r in lockdown here in NZ too.Love this crochet community. x


Thanks again for a lovely post Lucy. I did a great long comment on your last post, but it just wouldn't publish for some weird reason. I'm enjoying each photo, snippet of your life & the positivity you are bringing with them. Autumn here, so grey days ahead, but lovely sunshine for this weekend. My Dahlia rug is coming along nicely & keeps me busy of a night. Stay safe, take care & huggles from down under.


Decided I quiet like this slow life, the joys of walking the dog without thinking of all the things waiting to be finished at home. The weather is beautiful in North Essex too spring is upon us.


Such a lovely, warm, happy post Lucy, just what I needed. I've been noticing rainbows around here too, good to see. Look after yourself. CJ xx


Your last post inspired me to crochet a patchwork blanket so yesterday I ordered a yarn pack from wool warehouse...I'll soon be hooking 😀 Stay safe xx


Happy things indeed! The children in our village have been doing rainbows this week, and next week they are “Going on a Bear Hunt” so we’ve all been asked to put teddies in our windows for them to search out! Xx

Winwick Mum

What happy photos! We've had glorious sunshine today as well, it does make staying at home more bearable! Xx


Lovely, saw a programme earlier about the village of polperro where the ladies knitted the fishermens jumpers fir some reason you on your doorstep came to mind. They said it was a lovely community ahhh.
