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

Wow, first comment!? Really nice to have a morning post, as it's too dark to do anything but flick through t'interweb at the moment.

Looking forward to the wreath!

Hohhot, very cute. I am hooking up little robins and stockings today, maybe could incorporate tiny balls somewhere too. Xxx


Now comes the fun part of decorating! I am not even making a wreath, but I feel the excitement and I'm cheering you on! :-) xxxx


Cannot wait to see it! Im not going to have the chance to make a xmassy wreath this year, too much other stuff to do, but Im now thinking of making a similar wreath to put up in my daughters bedroom? Who says they just have to be for xmas?? :-) xx


This is amazing! I wish I had the time to make something like that ^^
How is the tutorial for the birdies coming along? I am really keen to make some after seeing all the beautiful ones you posted a while ago! x


Wow! More ideas for me to make. I've just started my stripy scarf for the wreath and thinking about all the things to adorn it. These little balls are fantastic and will be so quick to make. Thank you. xx


Well...Can't wait to see...Quick, quick, let us see, Lucy. Oh by the way, my sister, who doesn't know anything about you & your creativity (she doesn't crochet, poor soul ;o))had a baby girl she named... Lucie (we're French, hence the "ie" at the end)
Have a wonderful Xmas season with your loved ones

Looks fun. Looking forward to the Ta-Dah moment. X


I've been working on your Snowflakes most evening at the moment, after a few false starts I got the hang of it and I'm gradually building up a blizzard of snowflakes, the idea is to hang from from some shelves as xmas decs (unfortunatly there are loads of shelves) although the stars you put up the other day are also calling to me along with these balls! Stop inspiring me, its confusing me and I'm running out of time!!!!!!!!


Hi Lucy,

These look absolutely gorgeous! Can't wait to see the final 'ta-dah' post.

What yarn are you using to crochet these up? I love the lovely bright colours.


Abigail @ Rosyhill

Oh these are incredibly cute! This wreath is going to look amazing! Abigail x

I love making little stuffed toys for the kids to toss around and sit on. The fun is indeed in the crafting and then in the joy of seeing them sitting cheerfully about the home making bright spots of color every where to chase away the darkness that sets in this time of year.


I'm so excited. I am going on a crochet for beginners class in the new year and just can't wait to get started! I love your use of bright colours, they just look amazing! Also, I have become rather addicted to wreath making - also thanks to a class I attended with the lovely Claire from Beautiful Things by Claire Mackaness who is running the crochet course - so the combination of crochet and a wreath is just bliss! Can't wait to see your finished product!


Oh brilliant. The balls look great. Your enthusiasm had me there with you. I must go sort out my little bits of yarn. I always new that such short pieces would come in useful some day!


Those are beyond cute!


hi Lucy
your little balls are really cute and i'll make mine so soon.


Hi Lucy, I'm buzzy making the wreath in my own colours. I want to make leafs and berry's to decorate it. Lovely to do. Thank you for the idea. Merry Christmas.
greetings from Holland, Marleen


Lovely! Looking forward to seeing the finished wreath in all it's hooky glory :O)xx
