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 have a lodge (fancy name for a bit of a more expensive static caravan) just outside Burton Bradstock. It truly is a gorgeous part of the world. I know that you say that caravans aren’t for everyone, and pre pandemic i would have run a mile. However, love love love it. Was bought in haste, July 2020, but it has been the best thing we did. Our teen loves it too, and is now of an age where she comes down with friends. It is my happy place and full of yarn….. About to become more so too…… Adore the Dune blanket. About to buy the yarn for this! I have been a huge fan of your work and crocheted several of your blankets so far. Crochet was my saviour during lockdown, and has been an obsession. Thank you for your gorgeous patterns and colour combinations.


Oh Lucy, the blue door in the old brick wall reminded me of the story of The Secret Garden (Frances Hodgson Burnett) - wondering what is behind that door ... worthy of a painting, do you think?
What wonderful weather you had for the week away.
Following your story brought back the memories with my lovely Mum, and her journey with dementia. It isn't easy, but you're doing all the right things, and it is good to know that your children have seen their granddad. Memories for them too. Thoughts are with you and Lady B, for just being there for your Dad. Love and virtual hugs, x

I love how you enjoy the 'little' bits of life, the flowers, sky, sea, stars and the joy you get from your family. Dealing with your Dad is so hard but tempered with the joy of being with your family in beautiful Dorset. Sending love and prayers xx

Debbi Robertson

Your oh, so descriptive words and lovely shots make for perfect postcards. And aren't we all the luckiest of recipients?! So happy for you and your family to have enjoyed such a special time together. Sending love. . .

Enjoyed you'll be glad u spent quality time with dad


I am really enjoying your postards.
Focusing in on the beauty - it sure is a very floriferous time in the Shire.


How comforting to have the everlasting simplicity of the sky and shore, the music of the sea and the birds, the feel of the sun on your skin, and the presence of J and your children to buffer the difficulties of dealing with your father's disease. The whole situation is heartbreaking. Hang in there, Lucy. We're there with you in spirit.


Thanks so much for the postcards bringing back many happy memories for me. Your dad's difficulties also stir memories you're in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time


Big Hugs and Thankyou for your beautiful postcards.


More lovely postcards. Thank you for sharing.
Take care

Sending hugs from windy Essex. X


Thank you so much for sending these postcards! I am enjoying reading them. The pictures are so beautiful, and so glad you are having lovely weather and wonderful family time :)

Lovely postcards once again! Those blue skies are lovely. Try not to worry too much about your dad. I know it’s not easy, my dad had dementia. Enjoy the final days of your holiday. The “little ones” will have lovely memories of the gorgeous weather,the caravan and spending time with you. What a gorgeous break for you all. Hugsx


I'm so glad the weather has been kind for you, making the fragility of your trip down south easier for you and family. I've also loved tagging along to places you know well & I don't, although I have been to Dorset and through it at different times. Enjoy the rest of your time there & hugs from down under.


I am so happy for you that all the weather is this good, the UK is known for a different style of skies ;>p You did well to make this memory, however difficult it may seem. All my love <3
