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

Hi Lucy, thanks for sharing your patterns, they are such an inspiration. Hearts and flower bunting is underway! (and a thankyou donation).


Don't know how I missed this post, what a lovely idea. I have made lots of hearts this week, pop over and have a look, at the end of the post are crocheted hearts on a card for valentines! Thanks for all the inspiration! eclectichomelife.blogspot.com


Dear Lucy, I just came across another blog which is using some of your gorgeous pictures but not crediting you in any way. I thought you might want to know. You can find the post here: http://bautawitch.se/2013/02/12/virka-ett-vackert-hjarta/
For the record, I'm not sure whether she actually 'stole' your photos or just found them on pinterest or something like that.

Love your blog Lucy! I am a southerner but had family in ilkey so know The Strid and many other places you visit. Is it possible to purchase any of your crochet? Thanks for bringing sunshine into my life


Am I the only person out there struggling to make this heart?! :-(. I've been trying for weeks now, with different types of yarn and different sized hooks, and for some reason I just can't get to grips with it! :-( the flowers and leaves I have no problem with! Guess I'm going to have to find a new plan for a wedding gift for my friend next week, after being so inspired :-(


Hi Lucy, Thanks for sharing this pattern. It kept our knitting group very busy yesterday morning and you can see my version here.


Thank you so much for the inspiration I have learned to crochet with you and I love the teeny tiny flowers they were a joy to make, see my results here http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Susanba/heart-pocket


I made some and posted them, just popping by to say thank you AGAIN for the patterns/ideas!


I just finished 6 of these and they all turned out lovely. Thank you for sharing!


i love it Lucy! made one for my moms new home and added a pouch of nice smelling "potpouri" as we call it, she loved it!!!

Such a beautiful heart:) I will be trying to replicate this but not as lovely as yours:) I want to give them to friends and my sisters. Thanks again for sharing:)


Dear Lucy,
Continue to love your blog with so many lovely photos and patterns! I do realize you are a VERY busy lady, but, still will ask a favor....would you please write up a pattern for the sweet flower scarf you made.....I saw it on your blog way back in 2008, I believe...the pic showed your lovely green jacket with the scarf thereon..I crochet very well, but, have not a bit of talent when it comes to writing patterns........
Very sincerely,

Kayleigh Gerrard

I commented on this a couple weeks ago.. I've finally got around to making it, hopefully be on my blog with links to here and the original pattern later in the week :) x


Thanks a lot for a good idea. I tried to make the same...http://a-ideas-a.blogspot.com/2013/01/lovely-heart.html


My darling goddaughter started boarding school this week. I made this heart for her and one for her sister who is still at home. It is so gorgeous. Thank-you for sharing all your wonderful patterns. I love reading your blog.


I love all the hearts and flowers, they are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing this.


Oh, great idea for a gift!, i will make one for my mom i think she will like it.


Hi, I love your colorful world :)


Thank you so much for this lovely pattern. I've made one and shown it on my blog, and I'm sure I'll be making many more :)
