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

It sounds fantastic, I wish I could have joined you!


Wow, looks like so much fun! I wish I lived nearby so I could attend a workshop!


I wish I lived closer!


Those little birds are adorable! Well done to all concerned; glad it is turning out to be so enjoyable for you too xx

Hola Lucy:
Deben de ser una maravilla tus talleres. Se ve que estás muy contenta con lo que haces y de compartirlo con la gente.
Sabes que somos muchas las que te seguimos, desde todos los puntos del planeta. En España todas las ganchilleras hablamos de ti, y aprendemos mucho de ti.
Muchas gracias por ser así, no cambies núnca.
Un beso


You are one fabulous lady ... you inspire us all as we tell you time and time again and now you are beginning to see that first hand at your workshops .... well done my lovely xx much love Joy :-) xx

Oh how wonderful Lucy! I'm sure you'll be a natural at it soon. All the birds are so lovely, and it's nice to see all the different color combinations, I really like the blue and yellow ones.

Anne at Shintangle Studio

Ah, Lucy, if I had a few thousand bucks to put into airfare from Canada to the UK and then up to Yorkshire, I'd be signing up for your workshop like a shot. It looks as though it was a magical day. Good for you and how lucky for your workshop participants. Lovely bower birds, all of them.

Amy at love made my home

Brilliant!! I am so glad for you that it is going so well and very impressed by the work that all of your students did - some great crocheting there!! xx

Monica Figelj

Hola Lucy: Làstima que estoy tan lejos, si no, estaria alli para uno de tus workshops!! I love those birds!!


Are you running a coursed in August at all? Where do I find out about courses and availability please?


I hope you are able to continue the workshops for many years to come - and one day I can travel there for one of them.

Cathy in Webster, New York

Let's see, I only have to catch a plane to England, then a train or bus or car to where you are in Yorkshire. Wonder if my hubby would mind? I am not surprised you are teaching workshops, your tutorials on the web are wonderful, and even though I crochet using US terms, I have my little cheat sheet and I am able to go along quite nicely! Lovely lovely bower birds. Best of luck with all your workshops!!

Emma Estevens

Lucy it is so wonderful your workshops are going so well. Really wish I could make it up there. Hope they go from strength to strength!


Well done - teaching is no mean feat! You're obviously a natural, but do have a look to see if there's a short Intro to Teaching course at your local FE college. I'd been teaching for years (as you could in FE colleges in the old days without a qualification), and then I did a teaching course and was amazed at what I learned about the theory and many practical tips about teaching. I went on to teach teachers shortly afterwards and ended my career with wonderful teenagers at sixth form. That Intro to Teaching was a really interesting course that I still remember.

Rachel Lewis

Lucy it was the most wonderful day and you were welcoming, encouraging and inspiring - everything you could want from a teacher! I how to be able to come to another one of your workshops in the future x

Claire Mackaness

Welcome to teacherville. We would love to have you teach at BTHQ I have a whole bunch of ladies ready and willing to book RIGHT NOW!!


I wish I could visit you from New Jersey USA . We just had British neighbors move in next door to us and they have a sweet 7 yr old girl who asked me to teach her to crochet...YIKES I know so little , she wants to adorn her knitting with flowers ..

Fiona Marchant

It sounds as if it went swimmingly...it is such a joy when you teach someone a new task...and they get it.....AND they love it. When that happens I know why I'm a teacher..... Loving the little birds..may have to have a go xx

Winwick Mum

Many years ago, I worked as a training consultant for a software company. There is something wonderful about watching people leave you at the end of the day with knowledge and confidence that they didn't arrive with. If you just think of your workshops as an extension of your blog, it's not daunting at all and it's easy to see why you're good at them. It's something that you love and something that others want to share, so you can relax and enjoy them! xx


put the yarn ends out for the birds to make nests. what comes around goes around!

Anne Marie

What a good use your studio is being put to.

Anna Andreu Ayena

Ohhh kina enveja em fan, quin luxe poder fer un work shop amb tu. Abraçades Lucy


Like Anna, I'd like to know where I can find out about your workshops. Well done on your second one and also on having all future workshops fully booked. P l e a s e....... can you do a tutorial for circles scarf? Thank you for the inspiration you pass on to your many, many "followers". Annette

Michele Boucher-Hines

Sounds like you're a natural at this.
