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

Gorgeous Lucy I have been following your blog for many years and luuuv it sooo much! (But I hardly ever comment) could you convert the attic for a home studio? Or part of it?


I've been reading your blog for years now, Lucy. I normally don't comment, but felt I needed to express MY appreciation for you taking the time and trouble to create and post as often as you do. I've also enjoyed your beautiful photographs through the years. The area in which you live is beautiful and I envy the lovely places you get to walk. Know that this reader from southeastern Wisconsin will check in on your blog for as long as you want to post.


Thanks to you for your beautiful images, I have been your blog for years, since France. Your universe brings me good humor.

Ah, Lucy. Your working inviornment is certainly lovely. We are delightedly watching the new series of All Creatures Great and Small on our PBS station and the photographs of the Yorkshire countryside are so, so lovely! I assume they are in the Dales. On my one trip to England years ago I was constantly delighted with the countryside views we got from the bus. Our locations were all in southern England but there was plenty of beauty to enjoy there. Thank you for sharing your days with us.


That rainbow jug...It's just gorgeous. Once again (I keep saying this) thanks for sharing all the colour joys in your life.


I sooo look forward too your blog posts. Its been many years now that I’ve followed you and it is still such a joy to dip into your beautiful world of colour. So thank YOU! Take care x


lucy .realmente me hace mucho bien mirar tu blog.Eres una bendicion.


You thanking us is the other way around. I thank you for all the effort you put in your blog. And I'm looking forward to the new Winter Garland.

Karen Williams

Beautiful blog again, Lucy, thank you.


I feel like I am on a retreat when I peruse your beautiful photos and all the lovely yarn! The colors and blankets fill me with joy and I am looking forward to starting on one. Crocheting brings me peace and calm and your blog has been added now to part of all of this. Thank you for sharing!

chris conder

your posts inspired me to start crocheting again after a 30 year break. thank you xxx


Your home looks so cosy, thanks for all the inspiration you bring to us all and the recent peri menopause advice, I have been sleeping quite badly lately so think I need to speak to my GP as I’m nearing the age my sisters and mum started.
I love seeing Tilly, as a cat mum of 3, mine also appreciate the blankets for getting comfy on! Thanks again, from West Yorkshire 😊

What a lovely joyful post Lucy - all the colours in your beautiful home really made me feel happy. The photo's hit the right spot - I felt I was 'right at home' with you. All the work that goes into your Blog is so appreciated xxx Love and Hugs across the Pennines to you xx


For some reason I always feel like being home when I look at your pics. The cat, the colours, the handcraft, the little things you do or have... I love it.



I always thoroughly enjoy your colorful posts…..& especially when you include kitty pictures. I have 2 of my own and really appreciate so much seeing other pets being so well cared for & loved. And we all know how valuable the “paws on” supervision is during our crochet projects! Blessings from Texas!💗☕️


Whenever I need to have a talking to with myself, I find myself turning to your blog and patterns. They get me out of my head and into a place that appreciates beauty and a cozy, handmade world.


I love reading your blog. For me it is both a window into your creative mind and into a different part of the world. (I live in California.).
We, too, have a fairly open floor plan. Due to health issues, I spend much of the day in the living room in my recliner with my feet up. My parents, who are both hard of hearing, live with me. I’m blessed (?) to have excellent hearing.
Needless to say there are often issues with me hearing much more than I care to. I invested in a pair of noise-cancelling earphones. Now when my dad is on the speaker phone with someone and I just can’t block it out, I put on my earphones. Sometimes I watch a youtube video or listen to a library book. Other times I just wear them with the noise-cancelling turned on. I don’t use them a lot, but glad to have them when I’ve reached the end of my rope.


Thanks Lucy. Loved reading about your days at number 24. I do sympathise with you in your working situation. My other half has been working at home and loving it. However with our 19 year old son also working from home, our house can seem very small and I also find myself working in the dining room. However, I do have a lovely view from the window so there’s always an up side! I look forward to seeing the finished garland-I may be inspired to make my own one in the future.
Sending you a little bit of the salty sea air your way from the north Kent coast. X


Hello Lucy,

I can only join in with saying what a wonderful post again. Sharing your life with a glimpse in your home and beautiful colours: the perfect purple crocus is my favourite and love: kitty 😊 and peaceful tranquillity: the candle.

Thank you so much for sharing. Have a lovely weekend.

Warm greetings from a sunnier Vulkan Eifel,


Thank you for all the time and effort it takes to put together your blogs. There's something special about a blog post that you just dont get from Instagram (much tho I love it) xxx

Veronica Dragon

Nora McGrann

Julie Hodges

Lucy, I love reading your blogs. They brighten up the day.

Andrea S.

I love this space - thank you so much for sharing!


Your blog is so uplifting and a joy to read and it totally amazed me that it takes you about 2 hours to make. Thank you for the time you take to bring this to us. Sharing a small space with another person(s) can be a challenge for all of us especially the phone calls. The home we live in is very open and you can hear phone calls all over unless you go in the study and close the door. I always have to remind myself that this is a small price to pay for the rest of the house.
