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

Lucy, thanks for doing a tutorial for the round part by itself. I think that will be great as I'm contemplating doing a bag as well. Love the birdies, they are just adorable, and just as soon as I have a spare few minutes one of these guys is on my list. By the way, being very wordy and having lots of pictures is exactly why I'm able to follow your tutorials, I just love them. Thanks.

Thank you, Lucy! I can't wait to make a little bird! Your blog is a favorite one for me to read! Very inspiring!I've also made a big blanket for the bed....inspired by the one you made for your bed!


Oh thanks sooo much for the tutorial you`re a star!
Love Carole from Rossendale xxxxxx

ps Might go to the Farmer`s Market in your town on sunday, i want some organic soap if the soap man is there Cx

Lucy, thank you for the tutorials and for giving so much of your time and energy to us...you are truly such a dear sweet woman! Also, I remember a few years ago, a knit version of your bird appeared in Knit Simple Magazine in their Holiday 2006 issue. The designer was Amy Bahrt. I wish I could find it, but have had no luck searching online. I do remember it was made with Tahki Yarn, but that's about all. Thanks so much,
Lisa in Lake Oswego, Oregon


I loooove those birdies, plan to make a few as keyrings to give for Christmas. Really kind to share the tutorial !


Wow!!! Look at all of those people that you've inspired. It must make you feel so touched and inspired yourself.

Thanks for the tutorial, can't wait to give it a whirl. Although the hexagon blocks are looking mighty tempting after taking a peek at flicker.


Lucy !!!! Your tutorial is fantastic. This is my next work. Thanks and kiss.

I don't know if I'm quite up to making this lovely pattern, but I'm willing to try. It's so adorable and you're so helpful to write up tutorials for it!


I'm loving the birdies! And I love that the robin's legs are so long - it makes him extra cute :) I might even be persuaded to pick up a crochet hook and give this a try....


Love the birds! Think the middle one is my fav! Gonna have a play with this tutorial soon!

Clare Powell

Thanks so much for this I can't wait to get cracking and make my own little flock!


Aren't they just beautiful little things sitting all together? Love the blossom picture - soo pretty. Perfect legs too; just right. Actually I like that the Robin's are not the same. What is wonderful about these birdies is how adaptable they are - the blossom one is Eastery if you want it to be and the plummy one can look very Christmassy - it all depends on backgrounds and what you plan to do with them. And well, doesn't Mr Robin shout Christmas?

What a lovely lovely job you have done on them Lucy; thank you for sharing them with us and letting us into all your secrets about how you made them. There is going to be lots of fun going on making these I think - I would start straight away but I've got no wool shop near me and I'll have to plan an outing or order on-line (no-go right now what with the mail strike). Have seen some on Flickr - looking v good, can't wait to see some more. Thanks for all your hard work putting the tutorial together; what a demanding lot we are - you are very good to us!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. As soon as I saw your "birdies" I knew I had to have the pattern. They are perfect. Thank you for posting the patterns. I love your blog. I have visited Britian several times and miss being there when it has been too long between visits. I look forward to your future entries. Thank you, Renee


I just love these little birdies!! Going to have to fire up the crochet hook! Thank you for sharing these!


Lucy, you are so awesome! You have the kindest heart with sharing your creative bits and inspirations with everyone. Thanks again dear! Hope you and little Bump are doing great. :)



Can't wait to get started on these! You are such a doll to write up the tutorial...always full of pics and valuable hints! Much, much appreciated!
I am thinking I may try mine with woolfelt wings/beak...maybe...
Also! if you see this post, I'm having trouble stitching up my stripey mitts...any hints? I'm fine if I'm at the chain side, slipping thru the loops, but when it's a side edge...arrrgggh! Looks very wonky :-(


Bravissima lucy, è davvero simpatico questo uccellino!

Rachel Howdle

I think some of these may appear in my kitchen soon!

Lucy, I have to also add my thank you for your tutorials and patterns. The inspiration you have given me is beyond words. The fact that you share your patterns is beyond generous...I have asked other blogs for patterns and have been turned down on numerous occasions. I truly appreciate all the hard work you do to pass these on to fellow crocheters. You're the best!

Your threesome is so adorable. I really like the longer legs, actually. Can't wait to get started on my next one. But, if you had to my garden today, you will understand why I'm falling behind on my passion. Sure hope your little Bump24 project is going more smoothly for you.

Hope to sneek in a few hours this afternoon, as it appears like all my roosters are staying away today......he-he...

Great work! Twittered for you!


Lucy, how very sweet of you to share your patterns of the cutest crocheted birdies I've ever seen. I'm hoping to buy my first house within the next 6 months. These little birdies will make a lovely addition.
