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

Where is your studio?


It is always so uplifting to read your words and see your work. Thank you :-)
I'm looking forward to making some little birds. At present the lorikeets are enjoying our apple tree and they inspire me to make some birds in lorikeet colours :-) blue, red, yellow, green etc. - just the fun project I've been looking for!

I would love to come Lucy! Do you have room? I am sure I can get husband to have kiddies for the day.


Oh it would be March date.

Tutorials are a lot of work and anything concerning Bowers is extra hard work! My surname is Bower so I'm allowed to say that xx


I have been lurking for a little while, but just wanted to say that your generous attitude to sharing patterns and ideas is enormously appreciated, and part of what makes the atmosphere in the Attic so special. I think most of us probably don't really appreciate just how much work goes into creating the tutorials, and I will definitely be buying you a coffee!

Could I have some more information about the workshops?
Thank you very much.

Jo. Xx


How did I every miss the bower bird? She is adorable!! I would gladly pay for a pdf. Ravelry would be a great place to put it up, even if you want it to be a free download. Again I love it and everything you've created.


It is great to see your crochet tutorials for free, but I think it would be acceptable for you to charge for the more time consuming crochet patterns such as the bower bird. All those photos and written instructions, my head would explode! After all, your time is precious, especially with three children. x


Oh Lucy that must have been so disheartening pesky November grey, I do love your little birdie though and look forward to the tutorial. Thank you so much for sharing your easy to follow tutorials with the world, wishing you lots of luck with the workshops, wish I lived nearer.


You are a lovely, lovely lady - enough said :-) lots of love Joy xx


Hi Lucy
Your wonderful attitude and all that Attic 24 is about is what helped me start my crochet obsession a couple of years ago. Love your little birds, and remember them first time round.
So much lovely colour ... a polar opposite to my post today !
have a good week,


Hi Lucy. I'd love to come to the workshop in March, please can you contact me with details? Thank you x


I've been reading your blog for a long time and I'm not sure if I've ever commented before! I can't believe that people have complained about not getting a free pattern! I made a couple of basic pattern/tutorials at the end of last year - one for a tea cosy and one for a star jar cover (http://dinkidots.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/free-tutorial-christmas-star-jar-covers.html). My tutorials are pretty basic without photographed steps like yours and they took ages! Your tutorials must be such hard work, we should all count ourselves lucky you are so generous with your patterns!

Wish I lived closer!!! Hurrah for the lovely bird and just keep doing what you do Lucy. Go with the positive flow and energy!!! <3


Hi Lucy! I would love to come to the studio in March. I will be travelling over from Manchester. Please book me on that!

I'd be interested in the March workshop if you could email me?

Sandra Licher

Lucy, you are so sweet and so giving. I haven't complained! Do you mean to tell me they have finished all your patterns? Not I! I am slow as a slug so you'll always be ahead of me. I just hope I live long enough to make all your delightful patterns.LOL! Take your time sweet lady...you have alot on your plate.


Your little birdie is gorgeous and has real character, you are very generous to share so freely. Your tutorials are brilliant, and anyone who can come to one of your workshops is very lucky!

Michele Boucher-Hines

Oh my goodness - what a heart you have! Being in the US, I cannot attend the workshop, but I am so looking forward to the pattern. Also, I broke down and subscribed to Simply Crochet once you mentioned that you have your own column.


I fell in love with your bower bird the first time I saw him. I hoped for a tutorial but didn't want to be a nag. You lead a busy life and I suspected that a tutorial for your special little fellow would be a time-consuming project. You are a dear to remember and to be willing to do it when sunlight returns. Thank you, thank you. I will wait patiently.

Your wonderful blog got me to start a ripple blanket - I just WISH I lived in England to come to a workshop for the Bowery Bird! Will look forward to the tutorial and would gladly buy you a cup of coffee!


Lucy, I don't think I've commented before now, but have been reading your blog for the last year and it is always a joy to see a new post. Your writing, photography and generosity is inspiring. I too would happily pay for your patterns, however that you decide not to charge is in part what makes coming round to the Attic a truly enjoyable experience. You go with what you feel comfortable with and you will be supported all the way. I hope your workshops go well, would love to come but a little too far for me sadly. Good luck!

Patchwork Fairy

Your little bird is very cute! I haven't finished my ripple blanket yet but might just have managed it by the time the bird pattern is ready!
