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

Hi Lucy,
The stars are so lovely. Thanks for sharing with us!! I hope you're off for a nap now!!

Petit Filoux

That is so so cool!!! Must try and find something similar to knit, it's just so pretty and happy!!! Sorry to hear about the 3am thing, hope it doesn't make you grumpy (getting up at 6am makes me grumpy!) x


Ooooh....they would make a fab scarf for my mum's xmas prezzie.




Hi Lucy
I have just started to crochet and your blog really inspires me..it's just finding the time with little ones around!


Lucy, I love love love them. BUT aren't you sleepy!!! It's been a long day for you.
Loving all your energy, Robbie


I spent about 2 hours in the wee hours of the night last night looking for good snowflake/star patterns to make little tree ornaments and I think these stars will be perfect!!

Hello Lucy, I love your blog. I am learning to crochet and also get up in the early hours but I put that down to my age (65). Keep up the good work its a pleasure reading your blog.
Best wishes from Gemma


Those are fabulous. I've been trying to think of another drapey something for my girl's room. We have bunting over the window, fairy lights over the mirror, and now I think these stars will be perfect for over her bed. She will love them, and I think I will love making them. Thanks so much for the link, they are really great. Hope you and bump get some extra rest. I remember those restless nights all too well. One of my little ones even bruised my rib from kicking so hard and so often in the same place. He's still just as active. Have a great day Lucy!

Those are wonderful stars! I am thinking that they could possibly make some wonderful Christmas tree decorations :-)


Hi Lucy, Love Love Love the stars. Thanks soooo much for sharing that with us.
Love Carole from Rossendale xxxxxxxx

ps Where do you get your lovely beads from, the ones that you put on the hangy thing on the Rockin` Robins?!


Crochet is brilliant for this kind of thing (better than knitting I think). I watched a video of a snowflake being painstakingly crochet last night which was fun. I'm about ready to start on a snowflake pattern one of your lovely readers gave a link to. Those stars look stunning in the multi-colours, the star shapes are really well defined. I also love that they are all different. They are very pretty indeed and very adaptable, after all a star is not just for Christmas is it? Everyone will want some of those you know. They can be mobiles, garlands on or off the tree, card decorations, gift tags etc. Maybe we should do our Christmassy stuff all year round then we wouldn't feel the pressure - but then again it is only once a year and maybe that's the point! I'm glad you have something to do when you have a fidgety and restless night. The Internet certainly is a thief of time - but a good one, and it definitely has its uses. Thanks for passing on your links - more lovely stuff to look at! I hope you manage to catch up on sleep somehow though.


thankyou Lucy, I have been looking for a pattern for these, love the ones that you have made, the colours are really pretty,
I feel another project coming on.


What a fabulous idea! I'm thinking if they were done in white it'd look like snowflakes. Oooh, I'm picturing vertical strings on those hanging from my windows.... Once again dear Lucy, you have inspired me! Thank you!


Thank you so much for the link! I've been wondering how to make these for a while since seeing them around Flickr and yours are particularly gorgeous! Hope you and Bump24 are getting enough rest there - take it easy!

You never stop to amaze me with what you come up with. Star are the best, just way tooo cute.

I secretly love that you are up and on Flickr at 3 am... it's about dinner time and posting time around here in our zone.... but, my friend get that sleep. I wouldn't stop you from coming up with these miracles in the middle of the night.

Visit me today in the garden. We want to keep you as Glenda and not the W.W.of W., which is where I went last night at 3am. Make sure you have your sound on for the full The Garden Bell effect. Hope to put a smile on your and Bump24 faces this afternoooooon.

CheErS and GiGgles,
Kate - The Garden Bell

Lovely stars! I was just going to start on some myself in 3 color. Granny chic is addictive, just you wait :) Emma is a goody and so kind.
Hope you get some much deserved rest.
Have a lovely day!


Oooh well done Luce, can't wait to look at all those new blogs and the Flickr group, there's nothing like discovering a delicious new blog! I know Sarah London has also done a star pattern. Love your stars and looking forward to seeing what you get up to with them...

I found that star pattern last week and immediately fell in love with it too. I'm just not born to crochet, sewing's my thing. I do love them though, maybe enough to make a wee garland like I envisage. Is it really easy? Like really, really!!


Very nice to see!
I like your crockets.

Hello Lucy ! Every day I wait for your posts and I am always very pleased to read them. I think that it is in the morning when every one is sleeping that I work better for my patchwork, knit or crochet .... with a nice cup of tea .... The house is quiet and I enjoy this moment. Bravo for your stars ! So beautiful.


Love the stars, I so have to start making some of those for Christmas. I also had a nocturnal internet / crochet habit during pregnancy.....

Loving your work as usual!

PS The bathroom looks very good!


The stars are so attic24 colourful! I can remember restless baby nights - natures way of preparing you for the big arrival! Im going to checkout the star blog - oh and Emma Lambs work is brilliant isn't it!
