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

What a pleasure to read your post feels like an old friend catching up x


Hi Lucy, I too absolutely adore May and June, though I get a slight sense of panic as the solstice approaches. I think it’s because I realise that the year is already half over and the daylight hours will start to decrease. Still we have been making the most of the weather in the past week or so and been having early morning coffee outside. We’re lucky that the sun rises over our back garden so it’s been glorious. I look forward to seeing your CAL when it’s revealed though I have just started on 3 pairs of candy cane socks by Winwick Mum for my daughters for Christmas. Take care of yourself Lucy and I hope your daughter does well in her exams.


Oh Lucy, it sounds so difficult for you to go through the emotions with your parents. Families are complicated! I’m glad you’re immersing yourself in your next CAL and excited for November to see what it’s like. Enjoy the warmth coming your way and thanks for your post.

Always pleasantly surprised when maths and crochet collide! :) (I teach maths when I'm not crocheting..or is it meant to be the other way round ;) )


Absolutely love your blog posts. Thanks for sharing news on your dads visit and the ups and downs. Lovely photos as always. Excited about your next CAL and look forward to seeing hints in your future news x

I love reading your posts even though I can't crochet. I really feel for you coping with the decline of your Dad, my mum had dementia and unfortunately got quite violent at times. I called it the living death and it took a long time to get over her death. I hope your daughter's exam results are good and she gets to follow her dreams for the next stage in her life. Take care


It's nice to here from you. I am so sorry to hear about how your dad is getting on.I understand your heartbreak. Xox. You know that amazing chimney pot is like a gorgeous piece of art. A new sculpture in your little garden. Maybe it could do with a seasonal yarn bombing? It's lovely to see your warm, lush summer photos. We're having a dank winter. Hideous. While your summer Solstice rushes up too fast, our winter one can't come quick enough. Then I start looking forward to improving conditions and signs of Spring in August. Xox


An edit to my post: not provide us, but prodigious!


Good to know you are doing ok, Lucy. And great to have another peep into Attic goings-on, too. Hot weather forecast for tomorrow, so make the most of it :-)


Thank you, Lucy, for sharing about your dad. I’ve been through that, and it’s not easy. And, as always, thanks for sharing your provide us talents with us! Sending you hugs!


Lovely post Lucy. I’m always just a little bit envious (not in a horrible way) as you go into your summer and we’re entering our winter and everything looks grey and miserable here haha! Im sending my thoughts and prayers to you, your Dad and family. It truly is difficult witnessing the decline of someone we love. All the best, take care x


Lovely to see this post pop up and understand fully the anxiety over your Dad. Great photos once again and that chimney pot is ENORMOUS....I can see it planted up and used for crochet items in photo shoots(giggle). Enjoy your warm weather, ours is mighty cold, wet and windy) and take time to smell the flowers. Looking forward to your next CAL. Thanks for sharing, take care & hugs from down under.

Always love your posts Lucy, thanks for sharing your ups and downs with us, our Summer weather has been late as well but lovely here today, everyone is in a joyful mood. I am so curious about your November cal, always exciting to start a new Lucy blanket.

I love your posts and photos - not to mention all the lovely blankets :). It is difficult to watch the decline of our parents. I am sure your dad enjoyed his time visiting you and the challenges that you faced will always be worth it. Exams are stressful times and I applaud a the young people who are coming to the end of their GCEs AND GCSEs - soon time for celebrations. 😁


It's absolutely glorious out there at the moment isn't it, and your photos are fabulous. The chimney is indeed huge, glad it is safely down. In the thick of A-levels and GCSEs here, nerve-wracking isn't it? I am also trying to put in some hours clearing my dad's property as he died at the beginning of the year, so that has been quite tough. Your street party looks brilliant. I have a yarn bombing photo to post that I think you will love - the best Jubilee post box topper ever. Also a whole knitted Jubilee scene with a stack of cakes that appeared in the local secondhand book shop, it's brilliant. Hope the last two A-level papers go well. CJ xx

Great post. Thanks for sharing. I’m looking forward to your next blanket. I am making my 2nd Aria now. I gave the 1st one to my daughter and want one for myself.

Amanda Jones

Thanks for a lovely read. Also looking forward to Tuesday as the end of the A levels exams for my daughter - definitely needed a bit of crochet to keep me sane & calm the last few weeks.


Love your blog posts. Hugs to you and prayers for your dad. ♥️♥️
