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

Looking good Lucy, as always! Look forward to seeing the finished piece. Oh and lovely to see you on Facebook!


I can just imagine how your wreath will be bursting with all those lovely things!
I'm having a sewing afternoon but - wait for it -I've conquered my foundation chain phobia and started my granny stripe blanket!!!
I'm on my 5th colour and am loving it - even though I may still be doing it next Christmas!!
Your wreath ta-dah will bring Christmas cheer to us all.

I can't wait to see the finished wreath, it is a beautiful begining. Love the stars.


Those stars are beautiful!

Rachael Iddon

Looking forward to seeing the finished wreath. I've been making stars too, a bit like yours but a bit more granny-fied. Mine are mostly tree decorations but I was starting to think along the same lines as you -lots of colours and some sort of garland. Also v. jealous about the show in Harrogate. Something seems to stop me going every year. Sigh - one day all my children will be at school.

Ahahahahahah! Teeny stars! Perfect for my bunting! How did you know they are exactly what I needed! Thank you! I can't wait to see your wreath!


That wreath is going to be awesome! Your color scheme is the same as mine for my work desk Christmas decorations. They're so much more fun than the traditional Christmas colors.


Very nice, Lucy!
Just a tip for you and other crafters: those rings are (a lot) cheaper here: http://www.lainesworld.co.uk/L/poly/KC1182601230.html

Ada Bea

It's going to be yummy! :)

Lynne Gill

Thanks especially for the ebay tip-off, Lucy I've been looking for those half wreathes for ages. i can't be bothered making the wire variety. This is going to look stunning! What a collection of super-Christmassy items....my favourites HAVE tobe those gorgeous little starts. So simple yet....phhht, no-one else thought of them! Thanks as always for the tutorial.

I bet the atmosphere in your home is lovely, all that excitement and anticipation building - it's just not the same without a child or two (or three!) in the house!


looks great Lucy! I am aiming to make crochet stars, however, life keeps getting in the way of my christmsaifying! x

Colette Mowatt

Thank you for that. Enjoy a coffee on me!! ( thank you for taking the time to do the tutorial)


Dammit! New Years resolution is so to learn how to crochet. Looking good as usual Lucy, looking forward to the finished article for more envy making lovely crochetness. :-)

Rosemary Dennis

Can't wait to see the finished article!


Can't wait to see the finished wreath.

Holly McLean

Oh I love this and I can't wait to see it all decorated!

Tabby P.

Your wreath accoutrements look delicious and inspiring! I get so excited when I see a new blog post from you, Lucy. It makes me happy. I can't wait to see the finished product!
Hugs and love!

I was intrigued to hear you are using stars as part of your gift wrapping Lucy as last night I made some of your Jolly Holly leaves for my gift wrapping. Put 2 together by their stems and stitched on a few red beads for berries - look fab. Alison
