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

What a beautiful creation.I made not only one but 7 of this,gifts to my sisters and close friends.honestly I made alterations ln some rounds cause I want it more bigger cause I didn't exactly use the prescribed yarn and crochet hook.A finer thread from Cannon available locally was used so they were not mandalas but doilies.Thanks so much for your pattern.I plan to crochet more of your design.


Lovely! I've made one of these for a friend. I've put pva glue on the back to stiffen it but not sure how to hang it without it losing shape - any tips?


Hermosos los mandalas!!!!


Algo tejo de crochet e hice esas pajaritas hermosas, parecidas version mias, me encantaria aprender mejor crochet y tejer como tu. Que lastima que estamos tan lejos, sino seria tu alumna. Beautiful. Soy argentina y no se ingles, i´am sorry. Bendiciones y te felicito por las hermosas cosas que haces. Genia!!!!


Absolutely stunning mandalas! What were the colours you used to make the first one? I'd love to give it a try! Might this become a crochet-along pack like the ripple blanket perhaps? Utterly beautiful in any case! :) - Beth


I know it's meant to be a star but it does look so very much like a snowflake to me... I'm seriously tempted to make one in Christmassy colours

Madelein Bester

Stunning, as usual :)


Clever you! They are fantastic.


Stunning....simply stunning! I like your way of reading the pattern...otherwise it sounds too complex for me!


Look so nice and I love following your performance... Have a great weekend..

Lucy, they are magnificient!!!! Now I have to make one (or more). At least start with 1 for my daughter's room...


Wow.....these look amazing.....I've not been to visit your blog in ages......I've recently come back on blogger......flowing you via Facebook.....hope you're having a fun day.....melimel x


OOOOOOOOH SO lovely I have a feeling now Thanks Lucy x


Lucy you are so talented at colour choice and mixing the right colours together to produce happy bright cheerfulness. I am not nearly as good. Tried stash busting for a shawl and my trim colours are not nearly as grand as your colour choices. Must try harder. These are beautiful Lucy, thanks for sharing http://eclectichomelife.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/sunday-shawl-making.html

I'm dying to make one of these and have just ordered masses of yarn to do it but...one question. How might I attempt to fix them to the wall? I'm fantasising about making lots and hanging them all the way up the stairs but don't know how to make this vision a reality! Thanks!


Has anyone translated this into UK terms and are willing to share?!


Whenever I see your work, I am always amazed at the colors and the perfection of your work! I love all the amazing colors you use! They make me feel happy when I look at them. :D Thanks for your sharing and caring. :D

Oh Lucy. I had the same feeling when I saw them. I have just finished mine and I'm fizzing with pride at such a beautiful work of art!!! Thank you for sharing.


I am trying to make the neat ruffle afghan in US could you please tell me what stitch is used? Yours looks so different and also the ply of yarn and the hook for the afghan. How many skeins of yarn do I need for 48 X 60 inches?


Those are so beautiful. So beautiful, I want to cry. I am envisioning them as the tops of 3-legged stools.


Absolutely stunning...like you said I now have ants in my pants to do one too...Thank You!
