About Me

  • Hello! 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

Well done - they are fabulous!


Aaah Lucy, what a lovely idea.

Our School also offers primula (wrapped) in gaudy tissue as mothers day gifts.

Last year it was beautiful to see my little girl raiding her piggy bank then coming out of school with a plant pot stuck up her jumper. Needless to say my pressie was a little squashed, but very precious all the same x o x


What a clever idea. You never cease to amaze me.


What a fun idea! I used to teach preschool and we were always searching for fun child involved gifts. Any mother would be thrilled to receive a plant with a special butterfly! Wish I could come and help.



Oh they are absolutely beautiful x The mummies will love them, who wouldnt xxx
And best of all you get two as well


Lucy you will make lots of children and mummy's very very happy. I am happy just with the thought of receiving the embellished PPP!!! Did you get to choose which PPP 's you wanted from the little people?!!! You bring so much joy with your coloured creativity Lucy and I think the school must be so pleased that they have you supporting them. Well done!


Wonderful!!!! A feast of colour in your car. Love the lolly stick butterfly. Did you get a copy of the crochet mag???? Lucy xx


oh what a lovely idea :-) i am chair of our school PTA and can see this idea being brought out at some point!!! may just do it with my 2 little people anyway :-)

Lucy, what a lovely idea. And what a great time you seem to of had organising it,
I just love the way you describe how you made them, I was chuckling away to myself.
Thank you for such a happy, colourful, cheery blog, absolutely love it xx


You just make me laugh with pleasure, girl! Is there ever, ever, ever a boring moment at your house? Seems not! I'll bet you wanted to keep all those lovely flowers for yourself too? Anyway, what a great idea and your plan really looks so organized for 'seat of my pants' planning and I am so sure the Moms will love it...because I know I would! You're too cute, Lucy...just too cute!!!!!


Oh, Lucy, what a good idea and spirit!!! Congratulations! Teaching young kids how to prepare a gift for mommy that the whole family will enjoy . . .


Oh, that's so sweet. It's great you are prepared to give your time like this, oh for more parents like you. In the Munchkin's school of 250 children, the same 5 or 6 parents turn up each time to help with school fairs and that's it. Given the events make money for the school which in turn benefits the children, it always saddens/annoys/amazes me at the lack of help but that's just the way it is. Lucky you that you are going to receive two PPPs yourself!

Ohhhhh, how gorgeous are they? Lots of very happy Mummies on Friday your way ! xxx


That's just fabulous, I think I must be just as excited as you, just seeing them, and i'm not even getting one. they are lovely Lucy x


Ahh sweet but oh so effective, very ppp


You totally rock.
I'd have you on my team.

Phew, that's a 'wipe of the brow' posting!!

I love the idea and as a Mummie would love to receive one of those, what a beautiful, colourful gift.

Though can completely sympathise with 'by the seat of your pants's' as I'm becoming more and more that person since having three children!!

enjoy the other 70ish more you've got to make,

There's going to be lots of happy Mummies and proud Little People! Well done Lucy!


these are absolutely fantastic!!


Hi Lucy,
Great idea for the Mother's day gift ! It's very rewarding to help at school, it think.When my daughter was younger i always joined in at school to do these kind of things. Really great ! By the way, in the Netherlands Mother's Day will be on the 10th of may :)
Greetings, Janneke.


omgosh I don't know a Mommy out there that wouldn't be just thrilled to receive one of them! Brilliant idea!


That's a lovely idea Lucy. They look fantastic and I'm sure all the mummies will love them.
Nicola xx




What a wonderful job Lucy! I know that all the Little People will love making those for their mommies. And the mommies will love getting those bright beautiful flowers from their Little Lovelies. It's fun seeing their little faces when they make something for a special someone. Happy days! Have fun with the rest of the classes.



Oh, a boot full of prims. How splendid! Can I come to school please? I can scrunch right down and pretend to be tiny.
