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

Beautiful. Already thinking Christmas Robins....


Those are super cute! Your creativity is always so inspiring:)




Oh Lucy I just LOVE these little birds! Would you be able to post the pattern for us? I can't wait to make my own!


They're lovely!! Really cute idea!! Just to be a nerd, I think they should all be boys as female bower birds dont get creative and decorate anything, they only inspect the males handiwork!!


These are so cute! Another beautiful creation from you :)

I suspect there will soon be not many places in your house that haven't got some touch of your hooky colour!!


Absolutely wonderful, as always! Red Cardinals in the Christmas tree will look awesome! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us as it definitely sparks mine!


Stunning!!!!! I'd love it if the pattern will become available!


Oh! Forgot to say that I love, love, LOVE the last picture! The love birds with all the flowers are gorgeous!


Working out patterns so other people can make them is quite challenging- but it is really fun watching what other people do with them and how their different colour choices work out. Your love bird design is smashing,lovely results,especially like the notion of filling them with lavender.

Ooooh, had an inkling the long strip was a wreath. Another jolly idea, Lucy which offers scope for personalisation through colour, stuffing & trims.


OMG!! HOW DARLING!!! That is soooooo cute I can hardly stand it - the colors, the design - it's so so pretty! I can't wait to make one. You are the BEST!

Hello Lucy,

I was referred to your site by someone who suggested she made a flower motif pattern from your site. I can't find the particular pattern on your site and I'm wondering if you can help me. I can send a photo of the flower motif she made if you can tell me where I should send it. I'd really appreciate it! I absolutely LOVE your site and everything I've seen so far. The colors you choose are gorgeous!!

Thanks much,

just Gai

Your little bower birds are a joy to behold. And what a perfect holiday, sitting in the French sunshine, drinking coffee, eating pastries and crocheting away!


They are absolutely beautiful! what a lovely idea.
