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

Egremont Russets are lovely aren't they. I have squeezed a little tree in here so we have a few in a good year, although sadly none this year for some reason. The new blanket is lovely, and the garden you used for inspiration is just wonderful. Love your mantel as well, especially the pinks, I really like pink in autumn and winter for some reason. CJ xx

Love the cat on your legs. Mine decided she wanted to sit on my lap which meant I had to stop winding the center pull ball of yarn I was doing by hand and pet her instead, lol. She is a nice lump of warm so I didn't mind too much. :) Looking forward to your new project.

Thanks for sharing that drone info...such a wonderful look at your town. I felt as if I was almost visiting in person!

I never tire of walking with you through the beautiful area in which you live. I know you sometimes feel it's redundant, but it's not. each journey out is different in the way it feels and looks. Thank you so much for taking us along. I am finally working the border on my Yuletide blanket, which I began two years ago. Life really got in the way of that one. Also I am teaching one of my grandsons and my granddaughter to crochet, at their request. This should be interesting.


Your little neighborhood feels like a piece of heaven. I walk everyday around our little neighborhood,however I don’t live close to coffee shops and town. We are just entering winter season here in 🇨🇦. Canada . Have a wonderful day


Oooh, I spotted your hill at the beginning of the video! I love hearing about your walks, and seeing your stunning photos. I've often marvelled at how you seem to have the best of both worlds, living in a beautiful town where you can walk to the shops etc along your pretty canal, and then have such gorgeous places to walk in fabulous countryside only a little further afield. We live in rural Carmarthenshire which is lovely, but even the "local" shops are a ten minute car journey away (and buses few and far between).


What delightful pictures and a lovely glimpse into your life across the pond! So enjoyed this post!Thank you for sharing! I am in Tennessee, USA. It's 6:11 am here and 54 °F. A little windy and a cold. It will take time to get used to the cooler weather. It's cloudy out. Hopefully, the sun will come out later and warm it up here. I look forward to your flower posts tomorrow! Love your colors! Have a blessed day!!


Very much looking forward to seeing the sungold flower palette for your new CAL. You always choose such lovely colours.
I have just been reading about Skipton market and I can see why you love it so much.


My first thought after seeing the photo of the lady feeding the pigeons, was that it reminded me of the Bird Woman in the Mary Poppins movie. And then you write you sometimes view your life as being in a movie! So yes, I can totally see that :) Thank you for sharing your colourful life in this grey November weather. Makes me happy every time.


Thank you so much for bringing so much warmth and colour into my life today. It’s made me determined to look for it more in the ordinary everyday of life ❤️


Your posts are a blessing..when I feel down, they lift me up. Beautiful work. Thank you 😊

The video of Skipton floored me! Here was I thinking it was a small village, not such a big town! It looks about as big as my town, Hornsby in NSW, Australia 🇦🇺 😀 So glad you're getting OUT rather than SAD! Keep up the keeping 'up'❣️❤️🥰👌


So lovely to read how you've spend your weekend.

Any day spent visiting the Attic is a good day for me, regardless of the weather there or here in Michigan, even and maybe especially when there is a sad time to share because giving a bit of empathy and support to a friend is as helpful as getting it.


Someone once told me “ don’t judge your day by the weather” and I try to remember this, particularly on grey, boring looking days. I try to think about some positives…like rain drops on leaves, how good the rain is for the garden ( especially after weeks without any) birds seeking shelter from rain under my eaves, & singing. Constant wet days get to be a drag, but if I’m staying home, I can always crochet more ..

It's the highlight of my days to accompany you on your walks! I so appreciate the time you take to take us with you. This next CAL will be heavenly. I'm already so sick of the grey dreary-ness. I'm staying here this year; usually I go in my travel trailer to Arizona sunshine for the winter. This year, I'm staying on the Oregon Coast, hoping to get my hip replacement done. Thanks again for your lovely jaunts!

Kathry Grimshaw

Beautiful photos Lucy. Very familiar and well loved ( we visit Skipton most weeks).
It was funny to hear you mention buying your extra virgin olive oil from Aldi…..I did just the same from our local Aldi on Friday evening! 😊
My husband loves their chocolates so I picked up some truffles as well!
Thank you for the lovely post, I really enjoy your commentary. Xx


We too are stuck in a cool drizzley week here in the North Island of NZ...November should be bringing some welcome consistent warmth and sunshine after an upsy downsy Spring; but the garden is burgeoning with new life and spring foliage and after this downpour will grow and set fruit and away we will go into playing catch up with it all.
Nature is grand all told.
Love the pics of the market and your outlying town walks...
PS: you ‘sound’ more settled in yourself...🙂


You and J nurtured your little people into the articulate, independent people they are today - congratulations to you both!
I know just what you mean about suddenly seeing yourself in your life as in a film, it happens to me and it feels really strange - though as you say, not in a bad way. Cx

Veronica Howard

Such beautiful pictures and the crochet flowers look great. Thank you


I understand that grey days are hard for lots of people, but I think of them as an opportunity to cozy up! And it smells so good!!!! We are in a drought here in the middle of the US, and I really miss the rainy days! And how about your flowers!!!! Oh my, how beautiful :) Love your blog, feel like we are chatting. Sending love, sweet Lucy!
