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

Just completed my first one and it's adorable. Thanks so much!


And now I know what I will be doing tomorrow when I should be doing 2000 other things!
You are a marvel Lucy, thank you. And thanks to Mrs Meme Rose too (now enjoying her blog too)


Oh Lucy , I have some bare twigs I rescued from Mr BM's tree pruning this weeked....perfect timing :0)
Love your hearts and me me rose . Lovely things over there....great blog.

I had some 'exceptional' dust yesterday when I got my sun hat out of its bag on top of the wardrobe.
Too busy painting for making hearts- but the notion is so very beguiling...


C-U-T-E! I was thinking heart shape leaves before I got down to your wonderful tree! And don't you think they will make a lovely Easter tree in pale Eastery colours and a white painted tree. And lovely bunting attached to stripy bakers twine! Thanks so much for this pattern - I've been looking to find one I love as much as this one for ages.

It is a fabulous Twiggy Heart Tree! A wonderful thing to have around when you're anticipating Spring's full arrival.

How incredibly sweet! I love those little hearts! Having a very girly little girl I see some sort of girly heart project happening some time soon...I'll just have to figure out what :-) Absolutely lovely!
On a different note, I just made your orange cookies this afternoon...delicious as ever! I love your recipes cause they are so straight forward and yummy and just the right portion (living in the US most recipes are ginormous...like 5 dozen...way too much for an afternoon snack).


I really really love your heart twig tree, so sweet xx

Diana Troldahl

I love your twiggy heart tree!!!
I think I will adapt your beautiful idea as a way to focus my heart-thoughts on friends far away.
I like to send healing energy if someone is ill, loving energy if someone is sad, etc. I rarely can visit, but this way I can send virtual hugs. Perhaps I will make a pair of hearts, send one to the person, then hang the other on my tree to keep them in my 'heart'.
I enjoy your blog so much, it has greatly brightened my cold grey Michigan winter!

When are you going to give a long weekend class where we can all get together and revel in your wonderfullness while learning to crochet as beautifully as you do?

Dear Lucy I cut down some twigs in the garden. Now I know just what to do
with them. A very simple colourful idea just right for Easter!!!
And some red white and blue ones for the Royal Wedding? xxx

Reality Jayne

Oh A24.......I like em.


Lucy I love everything you create. I just wish I could get things finished as fast as you do. Love your heartssssssssssssssss...

Meg McG

You really are just sincerely nice. If we ever cross paths I'm just gonna hug you. Just so you know. You bring a lot of cheery happiness into the world and it does me a lot of good. Thanks :)


Adorable! Thank you for posting the pattern. I can't wait to make some! :-D


Lucy again another lovely creation!! I have to share with you that I finally brought hook and yarn and have started learning crochet! Slowly slowly I'm getting the hang of it and soon I hope to begin on a simple blanket. Thankyou for the inspiration!!


So colorful and happy and lovely!! And then you put them on branches. I love!

Carol Yarbro

Oh, thank you, thank you Lucy! I'll order some Rowan handknit DK and set to hooking so mine may look as glorious as yours! I check your blog every day, nd I get so happy when you have a new post. You're the best!


Cute cute cute...and extra cute on twigs :-) Definitely have to have a go at this!


Those are the cutest little hearts! and I just have to tell you that I was SO excited when I saw that my blog was listed under your "blogs I love" link list. I've been reading your blog for over a year now and I'm just tickled pink ( :


Oh, how strange! I started crocheting wee hearts myself last night, and checked in here while waiting for the kettle to boil, having managed to put my hook down for a coffee. Yes, they are completely addictive! I've made a few from string and was wondering what I could combine them with to make a vertical hanging garland. I'll check those links for ideas of what to do with my growing collection. Thanks! :)

I love your sweet little hearts! They look so cheerful brightening up those twigs. Thanks so much for writing up the pattern!


I do sooo love my visits to your Attic, and your cheery-ful-ness. Your new little dinky hearts are so sweet and colorful. Such fun to visit with you and see what new delightful hooky brights you create...especially after a long day at work. You always manage to make me feel like the sun is still out when I return home from work after dark. Thank you for sharing such fun!


Lucy, I think that spring must be here! Those hearts and leaves and all the pretty fresh colors are raising the spirits of everyone who sees them. And...that definitely includes me. I have to find some twigs, or figure out another way to display some of these fun to crochet bits and pieces.

Best wishes. xo


Hi, I am a new reader of your blog and want to say that it is just beautiful. I am very new to the fun of crochet. Really new, I just started teaching myself to crochet at the end of January - by watching YouTube videos. LOL

I find your blog a joy and an inspiration. I hope I can eventually create (even half) as beautifully with yarn as you do!

Have a wonderful week!
