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, stay at home Mum with three young children. We live in a 100year old Victorian house in the North of England which we are slowly renovating, and here I spend my days :: mothering, decorating, crocheting, baking, sewing, crafting and gardening. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world. xxxx

Lucy you have done it again girl!!!!
They're wonderful!!!
Thank you so much.
The donations button is a great idea too, you go girl!! to the wool shop I mean.

Dennis Marquez

Wow! I love it! I started right away, thanks for all the time you've put into this!

One little comment though (sorry!). In the star part, you don't mention back loop only, but I think that's what you've done looking at your pictures in the tutorial. Also somewhere in the beginning of the star part, after 1 Half treble, treble, picot, you say HTR, TR, but this should be the other way round I guess. Just so you know!

This was not criticism though, since I can't wait to start making a lot of these! Thanks again!

Tried to figure it out from just the photos, but missing the idea of the long dbls. So, thanks again, off to th lys for some Sugar and Cream cotton. woo-hoo!

Vicki Porter

Thank you Lucy

I have been waiting Down Under with baited breath for the directions. Sadly can't find the gorgeous cotton yarn colours you have but no problem they can be traditional red and green until I do. Thank you so much haven't crocheted for years but am loving it again all over again.

Beautiful work, Lucy. Thank you so much. I have knitted for years, but I first learned to crochet. I sort of put it aside and haven't done it in a long time. Your gorgeous pictures and tutorials make me want to pick it up again.

Susanne Tyree

Thank you Lucy!! All along have thought to myself that you should sell your patterns. I will donate just as soon as I can figure out US dollars to your currency....

Susan

I am just blown away by everything you do. I look forward to every idea you have. The colors you use,your design work, your optimism, - I could gush on and on - everything is so inspiring and makes me happy. Your precise instructions and photographs have helped me to understand crochet so much better. You are a natural, perfect teacher. Thank you for all of your time and hard work. I will be making stars and baubles for the whole family!

Sherrie

You are brilliant! Thank you so much for posting these tutorials. My tree ornaments this year are mostly all homemade of yarn, ribbon, beads, and felt. I will definitely be adding a few of these as well. I love your cheerful, vibrant colors. :-) Thanks again and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! (p.s. I have to work in wool or acrylic as I have little patience for cotton - it always seems to stick on my hook - leading to much frustration and choice words!).

Susanne Tyree

Merry Christmas! Donation was just sent :)
Have 4 baubles in the works. Stayed up all night with my scraps of yarn (no cotton handy). The possibilities are endless on embellishing these. I have a lady on Ebay who lives in UK and I buy my baby yarn from her. It makes beautiful baby shawls. Her mum use to own a yarn shop. I think you need to open a little shop, what fun, huh?

Kari Lambrechts

This decoration is so great. Thank you so much for sharing. You continue to amaze me with your wonderful blog. I will be making some of these great decorations soon!

Natasha Price

Thanks again for inspiring me. I've always been a knitter, but after gazing at your blog for several months, I was driven to learn to crochet. Your tutorials are thorough and easy to understand. I can't wait to churn out these ornaments!

Paula Neves

Hi Lucy, This is Paula from Portugal. I haven't crocheted in years but as soon as I found your blog I felt so inspired that I am now making my first afghan.
These decorations are really great. I'm planning on buying some yarn and start to make some right away.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Denise Jenkins

Ok...you're going to be responsible for making me go home "sick" from work right now...cough,cough...and gee, maybe a quick stop at the yarn store will help this "cough" I seem to have developed...

Hello Lovely Lucy!
Yay, I am making a set of these for my Mum for christmas in red and natural coloured wool and I LOVE them!
thank you so much for sharing your lovely pattern, if you have time, which I'm sure you actually don't (!!!) I'm popping them on my blog.... also, I used your granny stripe pattern mixed in with my granny circle pattern to create an awesome granny tea cozy which I've been meaning to tell you about! So thank you for that inspiration too!
You have brightened so many people's lives Lucy including mine and I thank you so much for sharing your love and generosity and general you-ness around the world!
Wishing you a very merry festive season and lots and lots of love, from Alice and Raymond XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Hey A-Two-Four,

Scribe here (aka TH, aka Queen of Whatever's BFF). I wanted to drop you a note to say helloo from across the pond. Your ornaments are dee-light-full and I'm surely going to make some and take all the credit... not really... but... ahem. I love your work, your colors... and your tutorials. I hope you have a loverly day, and a Merry Christmas from my yarn to yours.
