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

Oh Lucy, stop it with your shared mini bottle! I had 3 glasses of a bottle Friday evening before, and with my roast chicken, while Someone fancied beer. He made me share a bottle of celebratory champagne with him Saturday night. How could I refuse?! So of course that lone glassful was still corked up for Sunday eve! Probably good that I don’t generally drink during the week huh?


Great post, Lucy. Here in the Vale of York we have had almost constant fog since Friday, it is so depressing! The sun has peeped out at lunchtime, yesterday and today (Monday/Tuesday), but within half an hour, it takes fright and disappears behind clouds and the fog returns. Envious of your photos of beautiful blue skies. Thank you for sharing.

Lucy, are any of your other wool packs still available for purchase?


lovely place to come with a cuppa and catch up on your lovely, warming blog...your yarny makes are just so beautiful and the colours soooo uplifting! youre so talented. i so love candlelight at this time of year...and the moors near us look very much like where you are, though quite a contrast down here in Devon...but i walk my canal almost every day and enjoy the simple joys of the seasonal, autumnal changes...i think a good walk helps me always with my mental health and just being out side in green spaces...i too love looking at the flickering rays of sun light through the trees and jsut being thankful for what i have on my door step...take care, Kazzy

I just love my walks with you. It straight away calms down my anxieties of the day, especially in these strange times. Feel a bit wobbly myself these days, but that too shall pass. It was about Jan 2010 when I found you and since have crocheted many of your projects. I love the yarn packages and have so many odds and ends leftover, for smaller projects...that I think I feel a Bower Bird coming on. LOL I live on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada and our weather systems are very similar to yours. We too are just waiting for that one big wind that will instantly strip the color from the trees, but for now I am enjoying it all, even when the wind from the sea has a bite to it. Just thinking back again and Little B was really very little back then in 2010. All the best to your and your family. Hugs & Stay safe. MO

You bring sunshine into my life. You touch my world with the pictures you post. You’re romantical joy of the natural world bubbles over and my soul is lifted. I want you to know that the vibrations from the flutter of your butterfly wings reaches across the Atlantic and the continental U.S. and my daily world here in Southern California is filled with the magic you create. Your blog and your blanket creations bring me so much joy. Making your blankets gives me a creative purpose. Reading your blog transports me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to the tip of my crochet hook.

Hi Lucy, thank you so much for Blogtober. It was such a joy to share everyday with you. If ever you're near the Norfolk/Suffolk border, you must visit Bressingham Gardens. You would be beside yourself with excitement at all the colours! We were there earlier today and it's just beautiful. An added bonus is that it's only 10 mins from where we live. The steam museum next door is brilliant too. Crochet is definitely a good thing to do during lockdown. Wendy B x


You are fortunate to live in an area with such great outdoor space. What a beautiful walk you have. It must be very nice to live in a town where you may walk to do shopping. I enjoyed every day of your October blogs. At these difficult times we must take our joy, happiness and peace in the little things as the big things are so very trying. Thank you for sharing your walks, stitching, Prosecco, coffee and most of all the fireplace.


In these strange and emotional times it’s such an amazing tonic to read your wonderful blog Lucy. In one of your posts you’d been photographing leaves ( I couldn’t get to comment that day) and it made me smile as I had been doing that very same thing too, the sun was shining and their shapes on the ground were stunning and colours really vibrant. I took lots of photos of them, my mind whirring as to what I could do with them, it was so lovely to be thinking creative thoughts, something I’ve not done for a while now. It’s soooo exciting to hear about the Meadow CAL, 3 whole weeks! definitely something to look forward to, thank you so much Lucy. Have a great weekend with your brood and I hope you feel ok again soon. Take care, lots of love and hugs, Becki xx

More inspiring and lovely photos, thank you...there have been spectacular clouds over the past 2 days. I saw one yesterday like a perfect map of the UK...but didn't have my camera. Bah!


Oh hooray! I can’t wait to learn more!

I was thinking you weren't going to CAL this year as I hadn't heard you mention it but am so pleased. I look forward to this every year since my first Woodland blanket.I' happy to say it has traveled all over our home, in beds, on couches, chairs and been used countless times for forts in the living room. It is long enough to cover two grands sleeping on one couch and makes me so happy to see it used like this. I noticed another 'difference' in our language - your use of 'bleugh' while we use 'blue' for feeling a bit sad. I like your version better as it feels blustery and conveys more bleughsy feeling than just the color blue.

Victoria Margerison

Fabulous photos Lucy, love,love, love the one from the bridge so atmospheric.
Will look forward to a meadow blanket as I am nurturing a wild flower meadow in the back garden and the colours you choose wi be glorious. Have a wonderful weekend.


Ah, the most delightful catch up achieved at last. I have just read your wonderful round-up of Blogtober (again, fantastic achievement Lucy and we thank you) and the last two posts. I have also felt a bit wobbly this week, but to be fair that has been most weeks since March, but I've managed to hold on to a glimmer of hope for the future. Your blog lifts the spirits for sure.


I am super envious of the beautiful woods you get to walk through! I have a kind of naked park and muddy puddle near my place. Hopefully it will be a lush woodland in a few decades!
It's lovely to see so many of us Aussies (lots of Melburnians) and New Zealanders here in the comments of this and your previous post sending you encouragement! We're like the southern hemisphere contingent jumping up and down yelling "Come on UK & Europe! You got this!!" Xox


It is so wonderful to be able to join you so often in November so far!

Best wishes from Ottawa, Canada.

Miss Daisy

Love this post !!!!

Also your clear and easy instructions for relaxing and enjoyable crafts. Thank you!🙆

Ena Ann Gregory Dimelow

I have really enjoyed reading this today...on this bright, autumnal day.🙆☕Thank you so much.....your thoughts have been important to me over the years.🌼🍁🌼


Yes! Another blanket and cal. You make a lot of crocheters happy there. What a marvelous feather cloudy sky there.


Wow Lucy you are amazing, another blanket planned, I can only imagine how much work that requires. I agree the underlying melancholy is best not to analyse, uses up too much energy. The ups and downs of mood are just inevitable I guess, just need to accept it as okay.
Enjoy your weekend and cherish your brood, warmest hugs Xxxx

Sue Walton

Hi Lucy, thank you for your lovely blog and wonderful photos. We too had some wonderful cloud formations and the colour of the leaves are so good at the moment. I am looking for to the Meadow pack, the last few years it's become a tradition for a couple of my lovely friends to buy it for me for Christmas.


Sending belated thanks for your blogtober, Lucy. I absolutely loved to hear about your days. It’s an opposite situation here in Melbourne,Australia as we cautiously look forward to more liberties after our long lock down. It’s such a great thing to be creative when the world as we know it is going pear shaped! I trust you’ll continue to be thankful for the small things as they really do make a difference xx


Ooh so excited about your new CAL! Do you replant the hyacinth bulbs into your little garden after they’re done each year? Totally understand the discombobulated feelings - just go with the flow if you can, honey. We’ve just come out of a 2nd lockdown of 111 days here in Melbourne, Australia and I can’t tell you it was easy, but we’ve had no cases/deaths for 8 days now so we’re slowly emerging into a good if still a little restricted environment. Thinking of you all x

Lovely post thank you. Your mulled wine candle sound amazing can I ask where did you get it from? Thanks
