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.

I am loving your October blogs! It's like having a happy chat with you.

I wanted to make your Meadow blanket but I'm working on a quilt and I want to finish it. So instead I made wash cloths using the Meadow pattern. Oh it makes a pretty wash cloth. When I saw your Yuletide blanket had to try the pattern so I used the leftover yarn and made pretty wash cloths using it. Thank you so much for blogging and making your patterns available for us all. Thanks for making me love crochet again.


I can’t explain how I am happy that you have decided to do a blogoctober,

Ooh circular mats , I was just going to make stripy ones but circular will be even better 😊

I do love seeing your woodland photos, Lucy - thank you so much for sharing them. Coming from a woodland village but now living in coastal Blackpool (which is officially one of the towns in the UK with the least tree cover), I do miss walking under branches and looking up at the sky through leaves. Happily, I can come over to the Attic for my tree fix, and I am hugely grateful for that :-)

Ooh, the Strid properly gives me the creeps, especially when the river is in full flow although it really is something to see! Good luck with the Mandala maths! xx


The idea of crochet maths has broken me out in a light sweat. I honestly marvel at pattern writers in both crochet and knitting, so I shall look forward to your Yuletide mat. I am joining you in a little Blogtober blogging, although I fear my pictures won't be nearly as inspiring as yours. I am hoping for inspiration though! CJ xx


Your Blogtober! Another reason October is my favorite month! Thank you so much for all the time, energy and love you put in this for us!!! Yippeee!


Love having your daily blogs again. Wondering how Little B is enjoying his new school? Lovely that he was able to walk with you, precious times.


Hi Lucy I absolutely love your pictures of Bolton Abbey. My husband and I have fished there many times and we have really missed not being able to visit the last couple of years! We mainly stay up at Kilnsey/Coniston and fish on the river Wharfe but sadly we have not been able to due to the pandemic and we have missed meeting up with the local people. Hopefully next year we will be able to. W also love visiting Grassington and Skipton and love the market there. Well done on the October Blog and keep those photos coming.


Everything looks so beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. Thank you for sharing!

It's so lovely to reading your blog Lucy and see all your photos. I am off to Wales this morning with some friends for a few days, I'm sure we'll see lots of lovely greens and rushing water.


Thank you dear Lucy! What a joy to have your daily blogs for a whole month again.
It’s soooo nice to look forward to reading and devouring your photos every day 🤗


What a treat, to be able to read your blog every Day for a whole month! Thank you so much, Lucy!
I really enjoy the combination crochet + nature + coffee and co.
It's been a really rainy spring here these last days (though we really needed it). Your blog is like a cosy place to go to.
I hope you have fun and wish you a wonderful October!

I’m here for the mossy rocks.


I love seeing your posts every day, tho I appreciate its a lot of work for you. Pre Covid I went to a quiz where the question was, what is the river that runs through Skipton, I remembered Lucy! Bolton Abbey! and I forgot about the Wharfe and said it was the Strid!

I hate crochet math. Like quilting math. The fun of the project is sucked out of it in numbers!! I have faith in you and a table mat sounds lovely. Good luck! 👍


Nature is so beautiful! I ❤️ your photo’s of your walk! And I really enjoy Reading about your creative adventures. It gets my creativity flowing! Thank you for your blog-writing .


Those greens are so peaceful. Perfect antidote to a hectic week. Looking forward to hearing about your new projects. B x


It looks like we had matching Sunday mornings! We also went for a lazy Sunday morning jaunt along a river flowing fast and heavy from recent rains. No coffee though as it was very warm and muggy.


Bolton Abbey is such a beautiful part of the world. The combination of nature, old, and culture is just about right. It's been 4 years ago and I need to go again. This time alone, without my two boys.New ways to travel. I know the feeling. The little joys, a fresh espresso, strong and dark. The scent in my nose. Oh dear, math with a mandala. I am soooo curious. I know you will show us.

I absolutely love a coffee each day too, such a simple pleasure, but such a joy. Love your October blog.


Thank you so much Lucy for taking part in Blogtober. Appreciate the commitment involved. Isn’t it great to share the simple but important pleasures in life. Have been enjoying the relaxed yet engaging pattern of the Yuletide blanket, after just finishing a challenging Carousel blanket in time for a first birthday..
Looking forward to more variations of the Yuletide pattern, and wondering how many I can finish in time for Christmas presents …… or shall I keep them all?!
Thanks again,

Charlotte Pountney

The art of a happy life is enjoying simple pleasures...you have cracked it , Lucy!
