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

Lovely Lucy, Teeny Tiny Hearts are gigantically awesome! Thanks so much for sharing your new production from 'The Creative Mind'. Goodness I just need more time so I can try ALL of your faboo ideas!



So pretty & so kind of you! I love the colors you chose.


Ahhh... Lucy, you know us so well! Of course we'll be making teeny tiny itty bitty hearts for ourselves! I hope everyone will post their makes on flickr, too. Your happiness is catching! xoxoxox


I agree there just aren't enough hours in the day to have a go at all the wonderful things on your blog. Well done on another fabulous thing for us to try. Rachael Xx


Oh how sweet they look on the twigs! A lovely idea. It reminds me of the German Easter trees. I bought lots if Easter decorations when I lived there and they must still be in a box in the attic. They use willow branches/sticks and decorate them. Oh my I feel another WIP happening!
Love Tickety-boo


That is a wonderful project - the hearty twiggy tree. It looks lovely on the mantelpiece - the heart of the home.


The teeny tiny hearts are really gorgeous. I love all the different colours. Ideal for using scraps from multi coloured granny projects!


Home is indeed where the heart is X


I think everyone needs a twiggy heart tree in their house. How could you not smile and be happy when you looked at it each day! Yummy!



You should make cards out of the photo of the finished hearts and sell them on Etsy or EBay. I'm sure they'd sell well!


Thank you so much for posting! I have been checking your blog ever since you said you were going to post. Searching for a great heart pattern for Valentine's Day, I saw the hearts you made a while back but there wasn't a pattern and I was so sad because yours are so beautiful. Thank you for sharing your world of crochet with us. I am an avid reader and you always inspire me to create something colorful for my home. Thank you! I can't wait to whip a few of these up and create my own heart twigs, or wreath, pillow, wall art, whatever comes to mind.


so, so pretty, and brightened my day on this rainy, overcast day here in the midwest united states. thanks, lucy, for sharing this beautiful pattern, and for brightening my day! :)


Oh my!! I adore it too! so simple, but so effective. It looks stunning!

I want one for myself but I can't crochet, boohoo!!


Thanks for linking to my blog Lucy.... love your twig creation! I've been making the hearts today to make into work gift vouchers for Mother's Day xxx


So pretty and happy! I think the bare branches beg to be decorated because we are all so eager for SPRING. Thank you for sharing another brilliant idea!


Adorable! I attempted to make a twiggy tree last Easter and will probably attempt it again this year. I just couldn't find the right twigs and then I couldn't get them to stay in the jug. Hurrumphs a-plenty. But this gives me fresh impetus to make the twig tree!


Oh woweeeee!! I'd have never guessed. What a sweet project. Love it. x


Looks great! I love those hearts, so sweet on the bare twigs.


I SOOooo need to learn how to crochet!
Apart from the boring old job list that comes with a home and (messy) family AND my own wee business, I'm learning how to sew this year as my big challenge....I tried crochet but the shutters came down really quickly - a little like they used to in maths lessons!

But...apart from major blanket envy whenever i visit my lovely friend jane from teawaggon's house, I literally yearn to make the things you ta daa.
(as well as plain old covert, as you know!!)

Very very lovely.

L*O*V*E*L*Y !!! ;)


Thank you! Thank you! I took a beginning crochet class last year and then my interest kind of deflated. This has inspired me to get that hook out tonight!


Oh be still my beating heart! I have a draft blog post with that title ready to reveal my heart obsession. I will now be obsessing over making these little hearts as soon as I finish my fine thread star garland, flimsy floaty shawl, teacozy, jar cover, baby blanket and "bloody tough to hook blanket" I am NOT allowed to start another wip. But I suppose I should just try out one little heart, wont take long will it? Well, i can't publish my heart post with out including one of these darlings can I? Now where' my hook? Thank you again Lucy, for all you do xxx

As addictions go, this is not a bad one to have! Your tiny hearts are truly lovely, and the twiggy heart tree is just darling!



hahaha at your 'exceptional' dust - I have that type, too, the top of my piano is just...one step further than exceptional, I shall go so far as to say disgraceful!!! I shan't think about the fact that in the time it's taken me to type this, I could have dusted the darn thing.
Anyhoo I love your hearts and will be making some SOON! And just wanted to thank you, by the way, your blog has absolutely inspired me - I hadn't crocheted ANYTHING until about a couple of months ago and now I've completed two granny square blankets (small ones!!) and I am now making a lovely runner for my table and I am utterly addicted..........
