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

hi Lucy.
I'm glad that the weather is keeping fine enough for you to be able to get out for your pleasant daily walks to keep your spirits up at this unusual time. I can't see too much of your white flower but it looks to me like stitchwort. I hope it is as it's name is so appropriate for you.
Thank you for brightening our days for us x

I have enjoyed reading this overview of your daily life at the moment. My dog and I are enjoying our solitary walks through the local park and beside the Murray River every day.

You are good for my soul Lucy!


In Canada, uni ended three weeks early due to the pandemic and as a prof, I have been insanely busy moving classes and assignments online, figuring out the technology and how to meaningfully stay connected with my students... I can't wait to finish and finally get bored! :) Just the final exam now. Thank you for the spring garland pattern - we are now seeing a bit of spring here, the grass is greener, crocuses are out, and the days are getting so much longer - this always gives me a sense of more time, and of freedom. Take care!

Hi Lucy, I’m a nurse and I love reading your blogs. (as well as making your crochet patterns) I find them both uplifting and relaxing, your neck of the woods is so beautiful and I’ve loved visiting in the past when I’ve travelled up from Gloucester for Yarndale. Thanks for sharing x


the area you get to walk in is so very, very pretty and peaceful looking. I do feel for you have a tiny kitchen with little storage space a tiny refrigerator - I feel guilty now for the large kitchen & large refrigerator I have plus a small extra freezer as well

It certainly is a very odd time. Here in Australia we don't have anywhere near the numbers of people ill, but have some pretty restrictive conditions put on us. It came hard on the heels of such a difficult Summer for us which has been tough.
In a strange way I'm actually finding it a peaceful and creative time, although not having any young children certainly helps! My adult daughter has OCD and is struggling with the uncertainty; that is my main worry.


Lucy, do you use a trolley needle (aka laying tool) when you cross stitch? Your stitches are so smooth.
You do beautiful work.

Hello Lucy,
Thank you for sharing a snapshot of your family life during this time of lockdown.
It is lovely to hear how you are coping g as a family, and to see scenes around Skipton,.....a town I love very much. I have missed my weekly visits and look forward to a time when I can walk the familiar streets, and the beautiful Skipton Woods, as well as enjoying a stroll on the lovely canal and through the beautiful park. Thank you
for showing me all those familiar places. I have also been keeping busy with walking the dog, and plenty of cooking and baking. I have tried to look at the positives of these uncertain times and to appreciate the beauty of a quieter lifestyle. Take care
and enjoy those quiet moments that you manage to find in your busy day, and look after yourself. Xxxx

I think the white flower in your vase is a puschkinia (or something similar). I used to have some in my garden.


We certainly like the same things. I, too, need some time alone. I'm not use to having my husband at home 24/7. Most of the time I love it, but there are times I tell him I just have to have some alone time and he is fine with that. I'm finding this enforced staying in has made me more productive. I've finished two quilts and am working on four more and am loving it. So glad we can still order online as I ordered some paint by numbers. The company contacted me and said they were so overwhelmed with orders it would take a little longer to ship than normal. I'm glad to know commerce is still well and strong. Be safe.

Take care keep safe!
