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 all the Easter decorations, all so bright and cheerful. Loving your flowers and looking forward to the wreath. Sarah


mais qu'est ce que j'attends pour me mettre aux fleurettes...trop trop belles !


Sooo Springy!! Actually, the little six-petaled flowers are quite reminiscent of Primroses - perfect for a Spring wreath. Can't wait to see the finished product.

It is rainy and yuk here in the U.S. Midwest, too. Hopefully, it will begin to melt all the snow that piled up in Feb.


I quite agree with you about the weather...YUK!! However your wreath looks very promising, just the thing to banish the winter blues. can't wait for the end result. I just love the dafs by the way. ENJOY xx

Gorgeous Lucy! Am tempted to have a go myself :-)


Hi Lucy , the weather has been mis-er-a-ble here today too. Cold and dark, yuck.
I'm so happy to see your making another wreath...they really are wonderful. I still have my version of your original Springtime wreath...I made it with your crochet flowers and leaves pattern in Polyanthus colours and I really love it to this day.I think the flowers do look like polyanthus, it's on my flicker ( pre- blog) , maybe you could use / adapt that flower pattern.

It'll be gorgeous and sunny...unlike the weather at the moment! PS please can we have the tutorial for the bower bird...I'm stashing the yarn for it but would love the pattern!!


This wreath is going to be so pretty! I never thought of crocheted forsythia before, how interesting.

I do so lI've your wreaths, Lucy! I wish I had the patience to make such a beautiful thing, alas, I do not. Or maybe it's the littles that keep me from having patience for it? Either way, I'll just continue to lovingly admire your wreaths.
Hugs and love!

We are having full-blown Spring weather here in Oregon.. sunshine, warmth, flowers blooming and blue skies! I put some photos on my blog if you want to enjoy some sun vicariously! Your Spring wreath is going to be lush! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Such beautiful flowers as always, I spent the afternoon playing around with layout ideas for the wreath I'm making, I started in January with hope I would be ready for the spring equinox, which now 10 days away eek, it's been such fun though. Crocheted Forsythia wow, can't wait to see it, sound amazng x


Hi Lucy! Your flowers are gorgeous! As to the weather, it has been horribly hot for days on end here (Victoria, Australia) with temperatures in the mid to high 30s. We cannot wait for Autumn to finally show up! Just a couple of cooler nights would be a relief. xx

Oh yes, horrible weather with SNOW forecast! My children got out our spring decorations today and a couple of chicks appeared that I made with your semi-circle bird pattern. I had forgotten about them. So nice to find things like that. Your crochet daffodil got me inspired to make something spring-like so I am working against the clock to finish some crochet bunting to give to my Mum tomorrow. I was intending to decorate it with flowers (hence your daffodil) but I think I may run out of time. Maybe she'll let me add to it? Looking forward to seeing your wreath.

Hi Lucy,
An Easter wreath will be super!

I bought some daffodils today and hope they open nicely like your ones..

Despite the ghastly weather I went out and bought some sparkly sandals for my summer holidays! I am sure the weather will get better sometime soon!


Hi Lucy, can't wait to see the finished Easter wreath, I don't think people celebrate Easter enough in all its yellowy glory. Been checking in with your blog for quite some time, tried out some of your patterns and loved them. A great inspiration for all things colourful.x


Hola Lucy!!!! Do you read in spanish? Soy Fabi, de Argentina. I've discouvered your blog in january, when my husband got sick, and I began to read it. from the very begining! and it turns out a great company!!! I almost reach to complete the 2008!
Your blog is full of inspiration!!! And joy! It makes me feel good in this time of sadness...
I live in Buenos Aires, in a 100 years old house too, built in a holland style and with hollands materials... I feel identify with your styling!
Te mando un beso grande! See you soon!


Ooh - I can't wait to see your Easter wreath!!! It will be stunning, looking at the gorgeous flowers you have so far...good idea to make springtime for yourself as the weather really isnt playing ball so far this year, is it! Xx


So lovely and bright, can't wait to see it all come together! I've been making daffodils from your pattern as part of my mum's mother's day present for tomorrow, I'm making a brooch with them, hope they turn out ok!

Sara Jenkins

Can't wait to see your Spring wreath. If Spring won't come outside then you can bring it indoors! Snow forecast even in Sussex by tomorrow night!
I thought I'd make some Easter decorations and crochet a few baskets to hang on some twigs and fill with mini eggs. I'm pleased with the basket. Obviously your teeny flowers are gorgeous. But my chick looks slightly demonic! I need to redo the eyes. Happy hooking. xx


Looks like you've stocked up on embellishments galore! Can't wait to see the finished thing.

Cara Louise
