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

So looking forward to hearing from you every day this month. Your charming thoughts and words always bring a smile to my face and warmth to my heart. My sweet peas are just starting to grow up and hopefully they’ll be flowering before too long.

Hi Lucy Yay Blogtober! So enjoy your posts and your photos are always a joy. Autumn came in with a blast of rain and wind, and the waves were crashing. I do hope it settles down and we have those sunny autumn days. Almost finished the Dahlia blanket, and the dahlias in the gardens are starting to droop their heads and submit to the season change. All in it's time. Take Care, Hugs, Mo


Hello Lucy, so nice you do a Blogtober again. Last year your posts where a blessing towards the end of the year before the "dark days" were coming. Oh I hope you understand what I mean because I`m from Holland. I`m looking forward to the next posts with the attention for the small colourfull things in your life. Wish you the best with the struggles in your life.

It took me a while to get used to the absence of the school run too and also not being needed so much by my three children took the stuffing out of me too. But I’m glad you still find reasons for your walks as you live in a beautiful part of the UK and it’s a joy to see it through your posts - thanks Lucy and I’m looking forward to your daily digest xx


As a carer I rarely have time to do what I would like. I feel for you having to clear the table each evening and I hope you are to go back toy our happy space soon. I look forward to your daily posts. I welcome the colour and joy you bring to me life.

I'm glad the October has rolled around and that we can do a Blogtober Challenge again. I wanted to let you know that I've added your blog's name to my master list of blogs that are partaking in the Blogtober Challenge. Scott from PinArtwork.

Hello Lucy, I discovered your blog when the Aria Blanket arrived in my life ^^
I like the colors of your pics, I'll come everyday to read your posts. And for the end of October, my Aria will be finished, I hope so in any case ^^
Please excuse my mistakes, I am French, and I try to write without a translator ;)


Thank you Lucy looking forward to reading your Blogtober every day weather is horrible here today your Blog and crochet always cheer me up and make me feel better. Hope you are feeling better yourself now. Take care have a lovely weekend, looking forward to reading your Blog later 😊😊


Looking forward to your daily blogs, especially at this time of year which is my favourite. I’m settling down this rainy afternoon to organise myself starting on my Yuletide Blanket - when the pack arrived I was so excited to see these yummy gorgeous colours, can’t wait to get cracking x

I'm so glad you're doing a daily blog, I love the way you notice things and it encourages me to get out and appreciate the signs of the season. I hope the fact that you're doing them means that you are beginning to feel better.

And she's off! Thank you for doing Blogtober again and inspiring me to get off my bottom and join in! :) xx


Thanks for blogtober , look forward to reading each evening , it’s good that you can still leave all your yarn in situ at the cafe , i would be fretting about it though and gradually have to take it all home , what if I needed a certain colour at 10pm , that would be me , I remember visiting the cafe , after meeting you , at the very first yarndale , that was a great weekend


Oh brilliant, I love your Blogtober posts. In fact I am wondering whether to do it now, although my life is pretty much just work and routine stuff at the moment, so I'm not sure. It's my birthday today, which means it must be yours soon too I think. A shame you don't have your studio space at the moment, I know how frustrating it is to work at the dining table. I do as well, and I have to clear away for lunch as well as dinner and also at the end of the day. Although it's just writing, I always have quite a lot to set out, with a stand for my laptop and lots of bits and bobs to put out. Oh for a desk of my own! But there simply isn't space. One day...

Lovely post Lucy! I too work from home at the dining table, it can be challenge for space with my laptop, moniter, hubby's laptop and of course my 'in progress' crochet blanket at my side...I'm making a Yuletide stripe with parchment between each stripe! 🙂🙋‍♀️❤

Ruth Plowman

Yippee....you are posting every day! I love your photography and glimpse of life in the UK!

Thank you!!!


So lovely. I have a trolley, like the ones you can get at ikea for each of my blanket projects. The good thing about being at home is I don’t have to haul them around


Hello Lucy... find it hard to believe it’s been a year since blogtober... it was my habit to read it as part of my bedtime routine... so enjoyable!
Hoping this year that your blogging might help calm our minds again... yours/mine/everyone’s!! Also will bring a little bit of nature closer, along with your usual injection of wonderful colours.
Thank you, lovely lady 💐


Oh Lucy this is a thrill to be able to enjoy your posts all month long. Also a thrill to see I walked the same path just under a week ago while visiting Yarndale. I was stopped in my tracks by the beautiful red leaves cascading over the archway in the background to your ragwort photo. Thank you for sharing!


Thank you so much for your lovely posts! I was excited to see you were going to post every day, as I look forward to reading them :)

My daughter and I visited Hebden Bridge last weekend. What a beautiful place.
We visited the market.had a walk along the canal and visited a pub for lunch. I was looking for your little cafe but couldn't find it. Will try another time

Charlotte Pountney

LOTS of pretty things to catch my eye, Lucy! Hope you get your studio back, your yarn shelves are gorgeous...ditto the lovely little town you live in!


This is a lovely idea. October is a favorite to me and now for one more reason. I will look forward to your daily blogs. Thank You.


I love blogtober! I feel so spoilt knowing I'll have something to read from my favourite blogger everyday!! But then I feel guilty as I'm too lazy to blog everyday myself :( You are enjoying the last of the sweet peas and Im enjoying the first! I love nothing more than sticking my face in and deeply inhaling that beautiful scent. My absolute favourite thing about this time of year. Im so sorry you have lost your space. I hope you get it back soon. I feel your pain about trying to create in the dining room.


Oooooh Blogtober, love to read your blogs, Lucy. Pity of your work studio is occupied by cafe visitors. Don't wish too hard, any moment now your older kids can leave your house to go live on their own. Only little B, who will become big B, will be there. You can choose your workroom then. I miss my big men in my house a lot, but then again, I can catch a train to visit them. New ways always open up. See you tomorrow.
