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 nice pattern! have to try this once.


I have found myself checking daily to see if you have had time to post this tutorial... Hooray! I am going to start tonight and see if I can make some holly leaves as lovely as yours. This house could use a little Crochet Christmas charm. Thank you for all that you do on this blog - your inspiration and especially the tutorials!! And made all the more incredible considering your busy life with little ones. Thank you again!




Gorgeous!! And you're truly spoiling us photographing the green holly against a red background - such a visual festive treat.


Love it! Saw this and had to immediately try it. Works out beautifully. Thank you for the great tutorial!

Thank you for the crocheted holly pattern! Your tutorial is very good and I think the single line of stitches down the center really finishes it off nicely.
