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

After reading (and viewing) each of your posts, I find myself smiling. Thank you.


I love your stay-cation post, Lucy, and I could have known your garden purchase should be very colourful. Awww, that little foot <3 I bet he's as big as you now. Yes, decluttering does something with the mind, does it? Like it gives space to the chaos there too. Love to see how your garden becomes. Is there no Ikea in your surroundings? They have perfect, eco-friendly, durable garden furniture. I've got a couple of chairs and tables for ages now. In 1991 I bought my first garden chairs of metal, with lovely ornamental ivy leaves woven in the back. Still got them, and the table. I mean, expensive, yes. But still looking and sitting great after 30 years is so worth the money.


Sounds like you had a lovely staycation Lucy, love your descriptions xx


What a lovely descriptive post. I'm a home bird, so not being able to go away hasn't bothered me. The only reason I go abroad each year, is to see my family. I miss my grandchildren.


So glad you were able to enjoy your staycation. Adjusting to adult children takes time on both sides, letting them make their own mistakes and being there to support them when they want/need you earns the reward of deep and interesting relationships by mid twenties even if their life choices mean they are no longer local. The teenage years can seem never ending, especially when there is a gap between the children, but as you've found with your daughter there are moments of deep joy and contentment.

Thank you for sharing your life and patterns to bring your readers relief from these difficult times

Joyful as usual.
