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, stay at home Mum with three young children. We live in a 100year old Victorian house in the North of England which we are slowly renovating, and here I spend my days :: mothering, decorating, crocheting, baking, sewing, crafting and gardening. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world. xxxx

Thank you Lucy - that is a perfect pattern! I have been wracking my brains for a little something to give to a friend at Christmas and some of your holly leaves will make a lovely chirstmas decoration(with a few big red beads)for her.

Dear Lucy you have done it again and produced the most wonderful tutorial.
I have just ordered mine from a place in Stroud Glos as I come from Cheltenham and when the package arrives as it should do on Friday it makes me think of my roots so to speak.
So on Friday evening I can give those holly leaves a go!xx

I think Little B is doing macrame with the light bulb. In fact I'm sure of it, a young friend told me the other day that macrame is cool again and Little B obviously knows that.

Thanks Lucy! You are a star... and thanks for the tip about the yarn too.... :)x

Happy, Happy, Happy just got in from a night out with my lovely husband to find your holly tutorial-perfect end to perfect day (so long as little ones vomiting bug doesn't return :)) i love your gorgeous colours and fab tutorials Lucy!! Thanks, you are an inspiration!

Hi Lucy,
I have recently learned to crochet from a craftsy course and the other night taught myself flowers. I am so excited about crochet possibilities-and find I much prefer it to knitting. I can't wait to try your holly leaves-not sure if my skills are quite there yet but your tutorial is very clear so thanks for that! I realise I have learned the US stitch names though! Not that it matters-but I didn't even realise they were different!

You are crochet machine! wow!

Gorgeous as evr. Just wanted to let you know I've FINALLY used my piece of Ripple I made back in 2009 when I first came across your little den of crochet-love. It's on my blog if you want a peek. Thankyou, it's a wonderful pattern!

A bunch of us Information Assistants at the uni library have been following you with interest on Wednesday nights- and are delighted to have the holly tutorial! Our plan is to merge it with Crafty Crow's chain wreath idea for lots of festive hookiness! And we have a ripple too!

Annemiek

Can't wait to get home from work and check out the jolly holly tutorial! Thanks for sharing once again :)

Erika Mulvenna

Lovely! Great colors!

Cheeky monkeys do make for excellent entertainment do they not :-)

The bunting looks like it is coming along very nicely! I especially love all the 'help' you have from little busy hands. I have the same problem or should I say I'm equally blessed lol. Sweet P. was wearing my crocheted garland around the house tonight with a cat chasing just behind. Crochet is good for us all! Now if only I can get the garland on the tree!

heidi

precious! can't wait to see the posting of the finished bunting! the holly is soooooo sweet! thanks for the tip on the thread, i inherited a HUGE tin of it from my mom, bless her soul... she was a busy-bee what hooky things, home cooking and baking and DIY in general concern. i do thank her so much for the many inspirations and sharing things-of-the-heart. yes, i do see creativity as a passion and either you have it or you don't...
lil' helpful hands! so cute of him... i bet you have many satifying moments watching your bunch. hoping lil' man will get well soon... all the best to you and yours, lucy and thank you so much for the lovely pattern!

Hello there! Thank you for the holly tutorial! I am making heather black cloches for my nieces (3 and 10 mos) for Christmas and I think the green holly and red berries will be so pretty on this! I was at the yarn store today and purchased the yarn in hopes that the holly would be posted soon. Thank you for making my day! I really appreciate all the inspiration on your blog and all the tutorials you share! I wish I could join you for that cup of coffee! (it's under Kelly Moore in paypal!) Thank you again! Hugs! Bari Jo

Lucy,
I've been reading your blog for about a year now and have been tempted to write so many times. I love reading about your various adventures. Your upbeat spirit and joy in life helps me to remember that my life is good. We all have hard times to be sure. However, you seem to handle yours with such grace and honesty. Your children are so fortunate to have you for a Mom.

I am a knitter. I've never been able to pick up the knack of crochet. But you have finally put me over the top. I am determined to find a friend who crochets and can teach me to do it.

Thank you for sharing your joy in life and your enthusiasm for making life beautiful.

This comes to you from across the Atlantic in Lebanon, New Hampshire, USA.
(My maternal grandmother came from Durham, England.)
