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

Oh wow, these are perfect! I've been googling patterns for these type of roses but I just can't follow the patterns and I gave up after about 5 attempts at different ones. I love how simple this is. Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou!!!

I can't wait to try these! Although i am currently working on your granny garden square pattern for a blanket adn also a ripple lap throw.... I may have to fit a few of these in though especially because it is such a portable project as you say. It's hard to bring along all my stuff for the granny square (5 yarn colors etc.) and the ripple is getting too big to fit in my bag for on the go. I was just thinking your should write a book because your instructions are soooo easy and simple to follow. But i like your blog even better than a book. I plan to give you a donation next paycheck.....thank you SO much!!!


Really really beautiful, I can't wait to make some and use them everywhere. Thank you Lucy xxx

You ROCK! Another perfect pattern and tutorial. Thank you for sharing.


Hello Lucy, earlier this week I discovered your blog, and have been so incredibly impressed with your wonderful sense of style and color - thank you for sharing your passions with everyone.

My mother taught me to crochet many, many years ago, and now that my children have launched, I discovered that crochet has morphed in some incredible ways, and I have been relearning for the past few months. I absolutely fell in love with these flowers you posted earlier this week, and cannot wait to get started to make a couple.

Many thanks!


I just made them, and they are really lovely!
Thank you!!!!
Love, Liz (Belgium).

Dear Lucy I'm thinking a Rosy wreath would be great to go with my Spring wreath! Thank you.xx

Joanne Buckley

Lovely flowers Lucy, have tried one didnt quite look like yours, will keep trying with them many thanks


Oh my, another thing added to my 'must make' list! A lovely 3D shape. Already brewing an idea for these beauties! Thank you. Lxxx


I think I will have to attempt these. I have always been a knitter but you inspire me so much-must branch out a bit. Thanks as always Lucy- You Rock!!


Thanks so much, Lucy! The tutorial is super easy to follow and results in the sweetest little flowers.

Loving your work Lucy! Such pretty roses and I love that the secret is in the sewing up! By the way, we've just bought a caravan...I blame you ;o)


Dear Lucy, just made one and you pattern is simply the best among the tons I've tried. Thanks, I really enjoy your blog, a lot!

Absolutely brilliant tutorial, I'm off to make some little roses and leaves right now! Thank you, Lucy!!! :-) xxxx


Yes these are lovely. Also very pretty for little girls hair ties with matching brooch.
Very much enjoying reading your blog all the way from Australia. Am at present in the middle of hooking up a storm trying my hand at your Summer garden throw. My how I love joining squares as I go but sewing in all those loose ends is a real battle.
Thank you for much pleasurable reading and viewing. Happy days and nights to you.


Hello Lucy, i've been following your blog for some months and it's amazing how creative and colourful you are. I'm Spanish and I'm an English teacher so I have the idea to follow some English blogs to keep on improving my English and because I like decoration and crochet I love your blog. The way you write and the way you explain things so keenly and happyly. Than you for everything and best wishes for you and for all your family!
