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

Started crocheting just this year and happened upon your blog...it's now bookmarked and I check you out regularly. Just love your work; you are most inspirational! Thank you for all you provide to the crochet community. I know these posts take time and effort and they are sooooo helpful. I'm a heart addict already...found another pattern before Valentine's Day...already have a an obsession. But these are different from those and I love them! Thanks for the tut! I'm off to feed my soul with hearts today!


Lucy, you are a star!!
Your blog is at the TOP of my favourites list, and my list is LOOOOOOONG. Thanks for just being you, and for sharing your life with all of us blog readers out here.
Wishing you lots of good ole crafty fun,

when I get to grips with the mystery that is crochet I will have a go


Lucy, you are SUCH an inspiration! I completely adore everything you create and make - it's all fab! I have about 4 projects going at the moment, my house is being overrun by wool and the hubbie and kids think I'm going nuts! But who cares? I am happy with brightly coloured balls of wool!
Thank you so much for sharing your patterns!
Lots of hugs, Emilie


Thank you sooooo much for this tutorial; and for converting for us US peeps! You explain it so well. It's as if you are guiding my clumbsy little fingers along. Heart #1 succesfully completed...let the addiction commence!

Lucy, I love the little hearts! Thank you for sharing. If you ever think of ways to join them and use them for something amazing, please share! I have so many of these in my bag and I am desperate to do something with them so that they can be on display where ever I go.


Thank you!!!


I love these little hearts and they are perfect for me because I have such a short attention span and can never finish my crochet blankies. I'm off to grab some yarn and give them a try.
Thanks for the detailed instructions with pics. That helps a lot!!


Delicious, They are so sweet,think i shall make a stack up and join them to make a decorative piece to hang up.


Thanks Lucy! Your instructions are awesome!! I have printed off some of your other patterns to give to some of the ladies I teach (who are beginners) because your step by step instructions with pics are so easy to follow for them (and the shorter version is easy for me :) ).
Keep up the fantastic work. You are my inspiration.


I have made hearts before but they never looked as good as yours... the pattern and photos have made it look very easy... I love the twiggy hearts!


p.s. wouldnt they look good on hats/scarves and bags

Just when I think the crochet scene could not be bettered...you do it again....lead us on to another lovely pathway of colour, pattern, texture and shapes. June Howard. xxx


Thanks for the copy/paste version and for the UK to US conversion notation! I copied to Word then made the changes to US terms in the pattern so I could print it out and take it to my favorite crochet spot to try the pattern out. I can easily see a few of these hearts being added to various squares in the ghan I'm making right now for my mom.

Thank you so much for the tutorial for these lovely hearts! I want to find every color of yarn that you have used. Is that a G hook you are using? (I am sorry if I missed that in your instructions). I also think it would be fun to make squares with these hearts in the middle. Thank you again.


Thank you for this clear pattern! Love the little hearts!


Delighted to find this tute! I can't really crochet but I can follow pictures and I already collected twigs to hang little painted eggs on!!!!!!! So excited to try this! Thank you!


it's beautifful...i try to make it... but I'm french and I don't understant it! GGgggr I'm so sorry! Do you have a "scéma", a drawing...


thanks thanks a million thanks without end! I spent the whole of Jan & early Feb trying to mater hearts to adorn my valentines card with. I tried about 6 diff patterns - all too tricky...will be heartily occupied this eveing I can tell u!


Such cute little hearts - Lucy you have done it again - produce something I am looking for at just the right moment.
So far I have done one of your bags, the star advent calendar and a ripple blanket. I couldn't have done them without your very clear tutorials and photographs.

Thanks a million!!
