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

Enjoy your break Lucy.xx

Thoroughly enjoyed this blogtober post Lucy!
I can't stop smiling while reading, & I imagine everything in my head as I read.
Your little lady reminds me of my nephews, who are reluctant to show tenderness usually, but then, suddenly they do something so precious!
Lucky you,to cherish these moments.
Will enjoy the rest of this month like a retreat for my soul.
Thanks again, you're such a gift!


No, thank you to you for your posts , pictures, thoughts, colors, ...keeping me company...
Thank you dearest Lucy. Big hug,

Carol Iles

I enjoy your posts very much as they make me feel as though I am there with you. I am in a long-term nursing home so your blog takes me away from my problems. Enjoy your time in and Dorser and I hope you will be able to post on a daily basis. Have a safe journey.


What a beautiful day's walk! I can feel the crispness coming through from each photo.
Have a wonderful trip down, lots of photos
Safe journeyings


Awww lovely to spend time with y
LL and things looking up!
Have a lovely few days by the sea clear those cobwebs eh.
Beautiful blog and photos as ever.


I have been away myself last week, so the last two mornings I stayed in bed late to catch up on your Blogtober posts. It has been lovely to read, cozy in bed with a coffee :). I really like your inner dialogue too. Also, I am from the Netherlands but really love to go to Great Britain. Which has not been an option the last two years. Reading your blog feels a bit like travelling in my head. Can't wait to read the postcards, Dorset is one of my favourite places in the world!


What a lovely walk that was! Would have been better in person, but you painted an excellent picture (along with the actual ones!).

Hi Lucy Have a wonderful time in Dorset...a change is as good as a rest, they say. And it's great to go on one's own sometimes too. Enjoyed your walk today. It was a stormy day here, thunder and lightening, with rivelets of water going down the streets. It cleared a bit late afternoon so went for a forest and beach walk with my lil dog, Rudy. We came home all wind blown and wet, but refreshed. Take care, Hugs, MO

Hi Lucy, I've just been catching up on Blogtober from the 20th and I wanted to tell you I just love your ramblings.
I live in an entirely different part of the world, small town in Western Washington state USA, but I have so loved your pictures of your countryside, your love of color and your crocheting and knitting.
Thank you for all your sharing.

Janet Chappell

I so enjoy reading your blog and what a lovely day you've had today. Enjoy your time in Dorset next week, can't wait to hear all about it. My Yuletide Pack has arrived,I can't wait to make a start, thank you for such a lovely pattern.


Hi Lucy I’m really loving your Blogtober posts and enjoy seeing the photos of your beautiful scenery you have up in your part of the world. We are on half term this coming week too and it will be so nice to not have to worry about time too much! I hope you thoroughly enjoy Dorset and that the weather is kind to you, have fun and look forward to hearing all about your adventures, technology permitting! 😂
Take care, love and hugs Becki xxx ☺️


I envy you your lazy morning! Yesterday (Sunday) we had to be up bright and early to spend what we thought would be a few hours helping my sister move house. We got home at 7pm last night aching and tired and quite allergic to boxes. On the plus side I had a few lazy days beforehand so was impressed at walking nearly 17,000 steps (according to my watch thingo).


You live in such a lovely place! I hope your trip is a good one. Safe travels.

Sounds like a lovely Sunday, and nope, never to old to kick through the crispy leaves (I’m 62 and do it with my 3 yr old grandson 😍). Fab for you to have girl-time with LL (nice nails!) and enjoy your journey down south to old haunts! Love your daily musings & pictures xx

Charlotte Pountney

Not at all weird that you enjoy reading your own blog; it's a glorious photo diary. I vote for Blogvember, too!


Hope everything goes well in Dorset with your Dad. We passed through there yesterday going to Poole for a friends surprise 50th birthday party. My second Daughter is 17 as well and we live a bit of an emotional roller coaster with her so I can sympathise with you - not easy this parenting lark!x


Looks like a beautiful walk. Glad you had time with your daughter before your trip away. I’m very envious of that train journey. I love trains :) B x


Oh Dorset, lucky you. And it sounds like an absolutely blissful Sunday. Lovely that you got to go for a walk with your daughter. CJ xx


You write as you talk, snippets of thoughts woven into sentences. Very enjoyable to read. Oi vey, too old to kick some leaves? Never. Love it. I like the heaviness of blankets on the duvet, I sleep better, what better than your own colourful crochet, Lucy? I am happy you two went for a walk and talk. Take care tomorrow while traveling.


Enjoy your solo Dorset trip

For years my mum used to buy a Dairy Diary each Christmas off our milkman. She still has them all(about 20+ years worth) Now she is in bed all of the time(aged 94) and she loves us to read them to her.We have a good laugh at some of the stuff she has written. So no, you aren't wierd for reading old blog posts.Enjoy them. Have a good time in Dorset.

I am so enjoying reading your daily blog and your adventures and activities! I missed them so much! Hello from Massachusetts!
