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

Thanks Lucy, I hope to make some of these, always feel pleased when I find a ladybird in my garden. Do hope we may be able to have a tutorial for your lovely little bird brooch sometime when you arent quite so busy. I sent some bunting to you , then realised what a silly I forgot to take a photo, never mind as long as they get to you safely.
Cheers Caro NZ.

Oh that is the cutest thing ever! I'm going to make a big one as a little toy for my son. (But stuffing them with lavender is also a possibility - hmm, I'll have to make more than one!).
What stitch would you recommend for the eyes as a replacement for the googly eyes (so they are baby-friendly?)
I love collective names in English, a loveliness of ladybirds, how lovely!

Tammy Chrzan

I will be making these!!!
Thank you so much for this!


Thank you for taking time to post your tutorial. You have been an inspiration to a fairly new crocheter. I have tried so many of your patterns and have to say I just love crocheting, wish I had learned years ago. Again, many thanks :-)


Thank you ever so much. These lady birds are absolutely adorable.

Annette Frater

Ladybirds absolutely fantastic Lucy - as everything you do is! Thank you for the inspiration. I became "hooked" on crochet at the beginning of this year only after finding your website. Enjoy your weekend. Any possibility of a tutorial for circles scarf by the way? Annette

Cheryl De Ber

Hugs Cheryl

In the county of Norfolk, UK we call them Bishy-Barnabies or Bishies for short!

Nadine Camara

Thank you Lucy! I have just completed the sweetest little Hoody Jumper for grandson Josh (just turned 7) but have found that there is a tiny little hole where the wool split and caught "by the skin of its teeth:. It's not going to wear well and I need to darn it, but because it's right in the front on the pocket, I need to place something strategically over the darned bit....what better than a tiny lady bug? He is mad on insects! Thank you again
