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 am grateful for your blog and the beautiful way you write


Thank you for this post, Lucy. I'm grateful to have found your patterns and your blogposts. I'm grateful for my home, my family, my good food, God who loves you and me, and for my freedom. Love to you, from Texas, USA.


Hoping the builders are not too overwhelming……! You can lose the will to live when they are constantly in your space…..!


I am grateful that my elderly mother still likes to sew and drink coffee with me. When we're together, we forget how old we are and just laugh and have fun.

I am grateful to you for responding to my request for help in picking a way to walk around Bolton Abbey. Your suggestion worked perfectly and when we walked alongside the River Wharfe on Friday the route and the weather were perfect. So, thank you! You can read about our happy time on my latest blogpost.


Sorry - posted my blogspot without my website details!


Another lovely post. I wanted to thank you for your suggestion for our gentle walk at Bolton Abbey. We went last Friday and it was just delightful! Please read my blogpost all about it - with a few photos-


It is so lovely to read your words, I am always left with a cosy feeling of warmth and inspiration, thank you for that and for the honesty you bring. This week I have rediscovered my enjoyment and love of crochet 😊


Lovely post, Lucy. Congrats to your Young Miss!

Hi Lucy

Thank you for your lovely post... I always love seeing your beautiful village..it always looks so inviting and tranquil and so very different to anything here in Australia. I also find it very refreshing that although you are usually very upbeat that sometimes life gets a bit overwhelming ...it happens to everyone...I look forward to another great post from beautiful Yorkshire and good luck with your next blanket..


Good morning, Lucy. Thank you for your beautiful post, as always. The warmth and simple delight I get from reading them is like receiving a handwritten letter in the mail. A lovely way to start the day over here on the other side of the world (Australia).
I am grateful for this, and so many other things in my life. Family. Farm. Friends. Food on the table and clean water in my glass. Good luck with the blanket. Look forward to seeing what develops. Xo


I'm not sure I can be grateful for just one thing. There are so many. Top of the list is my other half, Denny who is always "there" for me. It's pretty much been just the two of us for the past couple of pandemic years. I'm grateful that so far, neither of us has gotten COVID. I'm also so grateful for a great job working from home. I don't miss the commuting at all. So if COVID has brought us anything good, it's definitely been the trend of getting to work from home. I'm also grateful for our wonderful warm weather at the moment and all the fantastic garden activity resulting. Now if you could just send us some of your rain, Lucy! I'm also grateful for your blog and all the wonderful photos.


Such a lovely article to read. I will come again. Thank you

My week had started well. I made some new friends last week and met them again this week. And one of them a man coincidencently born in the same year. Has given me 2 presents, one of an old Beatles CD The Lonely Hearts Club band and a heavy book on Space. I asked if he wants me to crochet him a hat and he said no but flowers would be good. So I don't know how to do crotcheted Primroses but I do know that I can do your small roses. He wants me to do it in pink!! Well it is 2022.
Thing is he said he won't be at the church coffee morning next week.

I’m grateful for so many things. This week I’m grateful for a grandson who graduated from the University of Texas with honors in the engineering department. Both our sons were here and their wives and we all drove to Austin to witness this grand event…..it’s only 70 miles away. I’m so very grateful for family…..two little boys who grew up to be two wonderful men, husbands and fathers…..just like their dad. And I’m grateful for your blog, for I love seeing a bit of life in your beautiful part of England!


I am grateful for many things. I am grateful for good health, A nice home, food on the table and a patient husband. I am also grateful for your blog and the memories they bring of time spent in the UK.


Reading about your little girl growing up brought a tear to my eyes remembering when my girl was little. She's forty-five this year and I cannot believe it. We should enjoy each minute with our children because they are little such a short time.


Hope the building work went ok, we are having work on our roof very soon.
Congrats to Little Lady on reaching this milestone in her life and very best wishes for her A level exams.
I am grateful that my lovely daughter has returned home for a few years while she saves for her first home. We get on so well.

Your little lady all grown up makes me realize how long I have been following you! I'm thankful for this space. I am also thankful that school is almost out for me here in Texas and that I am wrapping up my 28th year as a teacher. No one is happier about summer break than teachers! My own daughter is finishing her first year as a teacher and I'm thankful that she had a good year.

Oh I so understand your unsettled feelings whilst workman are around the house. I am exactly the same - feel constantly on edge. We had the decorators in for four days recently doing several rooms and hall, stairs and landing. Great guys but I was so glad when they finished. We’re now tipping the house upside down for them to come back next week to do three bedrooms and the lounge. Hope my nerves hold out! What makes me happy and smile? Seeing Jubilee buntings and shop window dressing happening in town. We have 4 crotchet Grenadier Guards covering bollards either end of the town square and others topped with red, white and blue flowers. Marvellous! Everyone I passed this morning seemed happy and relaxed and passing the time of day with strangers. The Jubilee Effect?


Lucy, I am grateful for your blog and the beautiful way you write 💕
Grateful for where I live in the world as my heart and thoughts go out to Ukraine 🙏🏻


I’m grateful for the knee replacement I had at New Year. It’s had a few nightly problems but those are resolving, I think, and things are on the up.
I’m also grateful for the friends I have, who support me when I need it, and are always there if I need them.


Thank you for sharing the ups and downs of your week Lucy.
I am grateful this week, for the fact I’ve been ‘forced’ to visit one of local tea rooms 5 times! - to catch up with friends and family - lots of happy memories- and even managed to catch up with friends we haven’t seen for 25 years! Hope you can retreat to the tearooms Lucy, more often than usual, whilst the work’s being done on the house. Have a good week.

Karen Dodgson

Aww Lucy I know how you feel. Reading about LL at 4 made me wish I’d kept a blog of those precious times too. My LL, Polly, is now 23 and we are currently spending the weekend as guests in her lovely new home, it’s so lovely to know we’ve done a good job and she’s now a beautiful happy young woman….so don’t worry you will always be her best friend xx


My twins are 40 in june and I dont know where the time has gone to me they and their older sister(41) are my best achievement in life!
