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

I love those sweet little birdies!! Thank you so much for sharing them with us. I bet your sweet little girl will love the rainbow one in her room. The little sun made it even sweeter!


Just gorgeous. You talented lady! I so enjoyed this post. I have got to learn to crochet! Loved our teeny peek of little B after all these years! Thought it was little lady at first 

Dani's lovebirds were brilliant.


Oh my goodness! I've been a fan of your creations for a while, but I think this is my favorite!

Oh Lucy, I was sure you will show us something soooo sooo beautiful... I l♥ve the pink bird with all the embroidery, the colours of the rainbow, the sun... EVERYTHING !! Thanks a lot !!
M Isabel


Oooh, they are so gorgeous! I wonder if I'll be able to make one, oh I'm certainly going to try! Lovely work by all of you!


Wow I love them. I'm new to crochet and think it's a bit beyond me yet. Oh to dream. I also LOVE your bunting. I could probably do that. Do you have a pattern for that? Thanks. FYI: you have inspired me to try a few new simple projects like the rainbow rug and I thank you for that.

How cute is that!! Very clever, indeed.


Dearest Lucy,
Perhaps would you do another trip? I would so love to come but I was already busy during your Provence playing. You did such a lovely job. I'm dying to learn to crochet. I suspect my project wouldn't turn out quite so beautifully but I'd love to learn from you. Here in the States crochet is not quite so popular among younger people (although I'm not all that youn anyway). I have love your postings. Thank you so very much!!! Gretchen-Hudson, OH (where it's raining for the next week) :-(

Handmade and off-centered

Oh wow I just love the design you made! Not to mention how great the idea is of stuffing them with holiday smells and perching a few on the Christmas tree :) I really enjoyed your post, thanks for the inspiration as always.

Best regards,
Birgitta, Iceland :)


What an ideal inspiration for your Province ladies! I can't wait to purchase your pattern for the wreath and bird, Lucy. I want to make one for a baby gift. We in America may not be able to find those flexible hoops with the hangers, but we can improvise!


In love with the sunshine!!! Would love to learn the pattern!!! :)

Carolyn Dietrich

Luci, I love the birds! And the clever way you covered the ring, added flowers and buttons, and hung the heart. The sun is also delightful. As I've commented before, you have such a knack for combining colors. I love, love, love your "ta-dahs" and reading your blog. It inspires me!

Pom Pom

Wow! I love love love all of the pieces of art you have created!


Those are precious! The little birds are simply adorable with those little eyes :) Everyone's different styles are great. I really like the tropical wreath with the vine wrapping around it! Any chance we'll have a chance to use/buy the pattern at some point?


Fantastic!!!!! Really beautiful!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!
Brava Lucy and thank you for showing all the creative process!!!

I am so in love!!! They are just beautiful and I feel so darn happy just looking at these photos!
Well done Lucy, you are a creative dynamo!! I adore the photo of your home where you can see your bunting and your various pieces of crochet around, I want my house to look very similar and I keep looking at your blog for my inspiration. While it hasn't happened here yet, one day my home will look as bright and cheerful as yours does I hope :)

I am picturing these beautiful birds hanging everywhere in my home! They are so pretty and cheery. Just the answer for a gloomy rainy day!


How fabulouw! Thanks for sharing your ideas with us! I'm always in love with your colours and choices! Pulling out the crochet hook as we speak!

What a fantastic week! The pictures were astounding for my laptop traveling. And then there is the project. DeeLightFul. I do hope you will do a tutorial and share with us. Thank you, once again, for your blog and inspiration.

Lovely! I loving seeing into your creative process- you've really inspired me play with color more and I'm having so much fun!


How fascinating to read about your design process Lucy. I'm not a designer of patterns at all, I rigidly follow instructions, so it's even more intriguing for me to read about the process. I especially love the grey bird - in his pieces before he was sewn he looks like a French beret.


That is such a cute idea! Is the pattern available yet or do I have to think for myself? (doable but not quick) I'm thinking red hoop, green holly leaves and a red-breasted robin on my living room mirror!


Love the idea of stuffing heart/bird/sun with lavender for the pillows to have wonderful dreams or for the drawers against the cloth moths. It should be possible to "reactivate" the fragrance with some drops of lavender essential oil (lavandula angustifolia).
I may try on a Xmas bauble http://greedyforcolour.blogspot.fr/2011/12/christmas-bauble-tutorial.html
Thanks for the inspiration.
Here (about 180 km North from where you stayed in Provence), the weather was horrible yesterday: very cold gale, snow, and around 0°c.
