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

Nafa Label - I need to thank you for you're instructional exercise. I have been making spreads for 5 cm retractable measuring tapes for blessings and loved the thought of a bloom for frivolity. In the wake of making two blooms that I didn't care for, motivation hit me with a cocoa focus and two lines of yellow petals - a sunflower. I made a picot in the focal point of the second line of petals and included a column of dark French bunches to the inside's edge. Your leaf is connected to the force tag. Much obliged to you so much - well done!


Thats really very nice

Lucy, você eh um encanto.
Faz trabalhos maravilhosos, coloridos e divide os tutoriais conosco.
Obrigada e Parabéns!


Hi Lucy, have you done a tutorial for the cabbage roses? They are really beautiful, and all your posts and photography is gorgeous.


I just wanted to say Thank You. I have just started your lovely flower tutorial and I have to say as a beginner in crochet Im so pleased I bobbed into your blog for a peek as I have never been able to understand the treble stitches from reading online or in books (I work better one to one where I can see it being done in front of my eyes)......terrible I know....but you have made it so easy to follow and I have now completed my first flower and I am sooooo happy!! This has opened a WHOLE world of possibilities crochet wise......I will have flowers everywhere. Love your blog. Keep up the good work love Nicky x


Ok, of course, my question is answered in your great tutorials. I see that you crochet
over your ends when you switch colors. Nice.

Max B

I'll have to send the link to your site to my sister, she'll love this!


I recently found your blog and it is a very happy place to go to. I marked the hat, but I find all your colorful work so wonderful as well. My question is how do you deal with all the many ends when switching colors? On another blog someone just mentioned the Russian Join. What method do you recommend?


I'm new to crocheting and just found your site. I love it!! Going to try this flower in my lunch break :)


Rose Hill

Oh my Lucy, what a joy to read your blog and feast mine eyes on a rainbow of color:) I'm officially your newest fan and subscriber:)

I'm a bloody beginner at crochet, but I'd like to try the flowers and that hat in your other post. Love that "house" potholder in the picture, hope you have some instructions for it somewhere.

Presently I'm switching the focus of my blog from a Florida travel blog to a general lifestyle blog. Drop by anytime:) www.ramblingrosy.com

BTW, found you via Andrea's blog hop via the blogger who posted her version of your ripple afghan.
Rest assured I'll be pinning several of your beautiful projects. Great job on everything - love it all! You are an inspiration to me!:)

My dearest teacher, it's a tremendous work what you do here. Your kindness and generosity plus a lot of patience is very much appreciated, I am so sure, by all of us, your followers. I am soooo thankful to have found you here. I loved the hat and would very much learn to make one by myself. Here in Brazil we are in summer time and I would love to have one to wear when to the beachside made of cotton yarn. Can you help me?




Lucy, those flowers are so beautiful! I spend hours admiring your attic. Everythig is lovely! I must admit that I've tried to copy some stuff but ... I'm not that good... anyway, thanks for the ideas! Your work is really inspiring!


I want to thank you for your tutorial. I have been making covers for 5 cm retractable measuring tapes for gifts and liked the idea of a flower for embellishment. After making two flowers that I didn't like, inspiration hit me with a brown center and two rows of yellow petals -- a sunflower. I made a picot in the center of the second row of petals and added a row of black French knots to the edge of the center. Your leaf is attached to the pull tag. Thank you so much -- well done!


absolutely gorgeous. thanks so much for the tutorial.

Sarah Tarrant

Thank you for sharing Lucy, these flowers are lovely and I'm going to make them and sew to a bag. Will you be doing a tutorial for the French Bower Birds, I can't tell you how much I adore them!

Abigail @ Rosyhill

Your tutorials are amazing and I am so grateful to have discovered crochet through them. I love this flower so much!
