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

After the Happy Flower, so lovely in all France !, this bird is so cute !!
Generally, your harmonies of colors are a reference for me. Your blog is a school of colours associations, and so "punchy".
Thank you for sharing all these tutorials !!
(sorry for my bad english...) friendly, Leelou

I took a shot in the dark and "googled", "crochet birdie" and found your tutorial! My friend's daughter just had a baby in December and her daughter calls her her "little birdy"...LOVE IT! Cannot wait to make one for her!!

The bird is the final touch on the Christmas wreath and it is so pretty I think I will have to make flock, I can already see the colours

This is so adorable! My granny has been really fed up lately. I think one of these lovely birdies will be ideal to create her grin. Thank you for the amazing guide.

I love, love, love your blog!!! Your patterns are awesome and have inspired me to break out my dusty hooks and push my knitting aside. I've been knitting for 34 years and crocheting for 31 and I sometimes put crocheting on the back burner but you got me excited about it again and for that I thank you! You really should consider publishing, I'd buy your book! And I really love that you take a billion photos because I teach a knitting and crocheting class at my children's school and it is soooo helpful! Thank you, thank you. I will be donating as soon as I can!

Merci infiniment pour ce tuto. Je viens de finir mon oiseau et vais l'offrir à une amie très chère pour ses 44 ans.


Thanks for sharing your pattern. I have just made two of these up as Christmas decorations for my new grandsons.

I am writing you from Ottawa, Canada and am inspired by your blog. Such a cute decoration and well explained.

I think I am going to be very busy making Birds and Baubles for my ladies at the aged care home..I think they will love them .We have an English lady here that is 100yrs old and knits beautifully.But now she would like to try something different ,bless her,and the 90yr old lady is sick of just knitting squares,so she is up for something new and doesn't even wear glasses while she works .

Dear Lucy,

Your blog is very nice and inspired me to make a blog myself. My Englisch is not very well but i wanted you to know how much ik like your blog.

Kind regards from Bridget is hooked from Holland!


Oh I love this awesome little tutorial! I definitely want to make this for gifts and for myself. :)

I am featuring this tutorial in my article that you can go to by clicking on my name. Of course I've linked it back to here. If you would rather I not feature it there, let me know and I'll be happy to take it down! I just want everyone to see this cute little birdie as I think it would make a lovely mobile to hang over a baby's bed!

Thanks so much for sharing with us.


Thank you for this pattern! You can see a bird on my blog! Bye.


How cute. Love all your project


I know its an old post, but this can be used as a folk art Xmas tree ornament.


Love this, thanks for sharing


That was so great! So creative! Hi, I'm a publisher of the Learn Your Christmas Carols blog. I've published lyrics and videos to nearly 100 different popular, traditional, funny and obscure holiday songs and had over 25,000 visitors. I'd like to include links to recipes, decorations and crafts this year, and am wondering if you have any content you'd like to contribute?b The only requirement would be a link back in your sidebar or footer. I'm asking you because I found some good holiday content on your site that deserves a wider audience. If you're interested, please email me at juliegallaher@gmail.com or tweet me at http://twitter.com/juliegallaher
