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

The lighting on the sunrise photos are mesmerizing! Nice camerawork too :)

Such a beautiful autumnal post. I love all those burnt oranges and deep greens that emerge this time of the year. Makes me want to hunker down and hibernate. (I think I might be a hedgehog in disguise). We too have been lighting our wood burner rather than switching on the heating and I have to say it's made our family all gather together in the evenings instead of staying in separate rooms. Lots of conversation and general 'togetherness'. It's wonderful so there is a good side to the energy crisis it would seem. Enjoy France! Can't wait to see the pics. x

I really love the socks you are working on. What length (and brand?) do you have on your knitting needles when you knit these socks?
Eagerly awaiting your post about France :)


Had such joy reading about your September!


Thank you for sharing your September with us. It was a lovely month watching Autumn slowly start to unfold her seasonal colours.
Hope you enjoyed your week in France

I LOVE your blogs! They take me away to a special place and let me nestle into a beautiful, gentle calm. I get to visit England, which I love. I have never been but I would love to go. I love watching British TV, movies, just to see the villages and country sides. You are blessed to live in such a beautiful country!


Your post always makes my day, your photos, sometimes we forgot that happiness comes from simple daily life. Thanks for sharing.


Oh lovely…I met you at Black Sheep Wools…two years ago…just before the lock down…I live in France ..but in the North….my daughter however lives in Aix en Provence…I’ve been there so much this sunmmer…how. Wish I’d known this workshop was going on…
Her partner was fruit (grapes, courgettes, etc )picking in Perpignan all last Summer…
But it’s not that far away….I would have loved to attend…
Hope you’re doing ok….
Keep it n touch


Blood orange gin and dark chocolate? Yum! Whoever came up with that flavor combination deserves a medal. I love the change of the seasons. I find each one has its own gifts, and each brings joy in its own way. I can't really choose a favorite -- kind of a "love the one you're with" situation. Right now, I'm totally besotted with autumn. Hope you have a lovely time in Carcasonne. What is it about walled cities, topped with turrets and little conical roofs, that seems so utterly romantic?


Oh my goodness, those sunrise photos are stunning, absolutely stunning. The allotment tomatoes are brilliant, I find tomatoes very tricky but those are very nicely done. My youngest is the noisiest as well, I wonder if it's a position-in-the-family thing. The chocolate sounds excellent. My eldest is in Yorkshire now and discovering all sorts of Yorkshire produce, including Yorkshire tofu, believe it or not. CJ xx


Thank you for sharing your colourful stories here, I am always enjoying them very much. Wishing you a wonderful time in Carcassonne!


Crocheting in Carcasonne sounds amazing! Have a wonderful time! We're cruising into Spring here in Kangarooland and after a long, dank winter I am running hell for leather towards it as fast as my little rubber clogged feet can carry me! I'm getting the veggie garden ready, sowing seeds and picking sweet peas like a crazy lady! Your autumnal photos are beautiful though!


I just came back from a 4 days trip to Carcassonne. I am sure you will love the old City and the surrounding landscape

Have a great time Lucy - my Stitchtopia retreat with you in France is one of my life’s highlights - highly recommend if anyone is thinking of going on one of your holidays. I’d love to do it again xxx


Ah, recognized Carcasonne in an instant. You will love it, have a great time there. I am so happy October will give it 20 degrees again next week. I need a little bit of sunshine to say hello to autumn.


Love your colorful blog!!

Katherine, New Zealand

Those sunrise pics are just glorious! x


Lucky lucky you! Have a fabulous time Lucy. I look forward to seeing photos and hearing about sunny days full of chatter and yarn.

Not at all jealous…!

This post made me so happy, homesick here in the US!


Oooh I love those straw flowers! They make great decorations on cards and gifts too! I’ve got some straw flower seeds that I need to sow very soon before it’s too late in the season. Thank you for another lovely post! Have a wonderful trip to France!!!
