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

I love the sense of mindfulness and joy this post carries Lucy. And, again, I totally get you when you say the cup of coffee never gets boring and it's not about just the coffee but instead the entire experience. Same here for me. I never get tired of it. It's the table location, the decor, the ambiance, the natural light, the chatty people around, the chat, the wait, the everything. For me it's a chai latte though :-)Your walks sound wonderful too (love the scenery).

Lovely writing Lucy. Your descriptions of your day to day life, the landscape, Crochet and other stuff is such a tonic to my soul.


I'm quietly sitting here with my early morning coffee in Hervey Bay Queensland Australia. I hadn't seen one of your blog posts for a long time. I have so enjoyed reading it and following along on your walk. I felt like I was really there with you. Thanks Lucy for sharing this beautiful moment and scenery with us.

hello Lucy, I can't wait to come back up to walk around Skipton again this year, fingers crossed!
I'm sure you will have heard that our dear Aunty Betty died on Feb 23rd, she didn't quite make it to her 100th birthday 😪
I shall really miss her sense of fun as well as losing the final link to my Dad and the Rickets family 💖
Love to you all xxxxx


What a lovely post, hearing about your Saturday. The countryside where you live is gorgeous.


Another lovely post. Thank you.


Hi Lucy
I sure envy you to be living in a beautiful place like this i can only dream of living there and going for long walks ,stopping in for a cup of that delicous coffee
I so love the scenery


So glad you've got J to talk and walk with as well as enjoy coffee and eggs with, to me they are the things that make a marriage. I have known my husband for 50 years, married for 46, and talking, walking and taking time to be together has got us through all manner of difficult times.


Another lovely post. You certainly live in a beautiful area. I think snowdrops have been better than ever this year - much taller too than I remember from other years and also they seem to have lasted forever. Gorgeous little flowers.


Sounds like a perfect Saturday!
I must say the image of J casually sitting on a bench waiting for you is lovely.!
I adore snowdrops too, they are so pretty and fresh looking x


I love reading your stories! Please continue to share.


I can feel the enjoyment in your words & the accompanying photos are gorgeous. Glad to hear that you can mull over your hobby with J especially over the last 2 years with so many isolation issues. The snowdrops are to die for, as we don't see them here in Oz. Thanks for sharing your Saturday & the beautiful dales scenery too. Take care & hugs.


Hello Lucy. I just love reading your blog and seeing what you are up to. Your photos are always the loveliest. I do love your Saturday morning routine - the coffee looks amazing! What a great start to the weekend. It's my dream to visit the beautiful country of England someday. Have a great week ahead.


You have inspired me to have a bowl of hyacinth bulbs in my bathroom. They are just at the stage where I expect to enter the room to a sea of blue flowers. Any time now they will go ping.

Thanks once again for your inspirational blogs Lucy! Always look forward to them. Like you I feel blessed to live in rural Yorkshire with daily access to countryside walks. Also totally understand the joy of the 'coffee experience'! It's so much more than the taste of the coffee. I understand the Swedes call it 'fika' - a celebration of the whole feel good factor. Glad you've survived the dark months a little easier this year.Please keeep creating and inspiring us all!👍

I must tell you that I so love reading your blogs and trying your patterns. Crocheting makes me happy, and I am quite glad that others do as well. Thanks for spreading the love!!!!!

Hello ♡
You have a wonderful, very inspiring blog! Great photos, beautiful photo report.
Regards nice and warm from Poland ♡

Diane Koele

Thanks for taking us along for a stroll through your Saturday. It sounds like a lovely day. Best wishes on un-noodling and sorting our your project. :)


Perfect Saturday. Love the snowdrops and so glad you have some exciting projects to mull over.


What a lovely Saturday. I enjoy a coffee very much as well, and when it's brought to me in a cafe that is extra special. I went for very many years not drinking it, which makes it even better now I think. The shouty 5am wake ups made me smile. You're right, it is utter bliss to wake up without them. CJ xx


Beautiful snowdrops :) And I love that you can chat crochet with your hubby :)
I've just restarted my blog over at emeraldcottage.blogspot.co.uk would be lovely to see you over there :)

Karen Dodgson

Thank you Lucy for sharing your happy Saturday. I love that J came to meet you! I love walking with my own J, and the time away from phones and technology to just hold hands and talk. As you know the St Anne’s coastline always takes my breath away….although this weekend we’re having a very short city break in Glasgow, and I’m loving taking it all in and sketching the sights for my college work. Hope your Sunday is lovely too x

Christine Summerhill

Thank you again Lucy for your beautiful blog. I have so enjoyed your lovely Saturday and could so understand the early mornings, we had the same with
our children, precious memories now, but what i would have done for that extra hour. Your walk was idyllic.....thank you again!


You have the most beautiful, colorful, cozy and happy blog! I have enjoyed perusing it and getting inspired to work on my own crochet projects. Thank you for sharing.


Thanks for sharing your lovely walk (and the coffee!) with us . . . I always love coming along with you. It's so amazing, seeing the snowdrops already blooming. We still have snow here in British Columbia, although on the coast it will be turning springy. I especially enjoy the stone walls, the walking paths, the glimpses of the moors in the distance on some walks and I have a special place in my heart for those canals and the narrowboats.
I wish you a wonderful week ahead and will wait patiently to hear all about the new creative endeavours.
~ Linne
