About Me

  • 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.

Dear Lucy,

I love your colourful and inspiring blog. I love the colours of your summer garden blocks. I love the colourful randomness of your hex blanket, which I am trying to make. Huge problem - I've discovered I can't do random! I have pulled it apart 3 times now. Please help me?? How do I make hexagons in random colours? I'm just about ready to give up and try a ripple instead :(

Just wanted to let you know that after many years of hiatus, you have inspired me to pick up my hook again. I've got my library books lined up.


Lucy, the generosity and quality of your tutorials continues to astound and delight me!! I'm almost there with the squares for my granny cushion - and then I'll be turning to this tutorial!! Boo x


please please..i BEG!! for a translator for you bloog..to swedsih!!


I'm a Knitter not a Crochet-er but your work looks lovely! I shall fish out the one crochet hook I have and give it a go! Thankyou for your great blog - what a beautiful part of the country you live in.


Hello, i wanted to say what a great blog & thank you for your crochet flowers & leaves pattern, i hope you don't mind but i have made some up into a brooch as well, which will become gifts for my son's pre-school teachers (if i can be forced to part with them), but also wanted to ask if you would mind me using one as a giveaway on my blog (i would ofcourse mention you & where the patten came from). sorry to ramble on in the comments section but i couln't find a way to email you,


Thankyou Lucy, I have been sewing mine but last night joined the first one by crochet much better, thankyou.

Hello! I've never commented before, but feel compelled to let you know that your blog has become more and more important to me. I feel differently once I've read your posts; more hopeful, more inspired, more excited about life. Thank you so much.


Dear Lucy
I really must follow your example and learn to crochet. Although I only recently discovered it, I adore your blog! I therefore couldn't resist mentioning you on my blog and including a link to yours. If this does not meet with your approval, let me know and I will amend it right away.
Thankyou so much for your bloggy generosity, for being so inspiring and what I call 'A ray of Sunshine'
much love

You are so talented and generous with your work and your colours are second to none! You have a special eye.
It was lovely to catch a glimpse of the hex blanket in the last post - that's the piece of work that introduced me to your blog and it's still just breath-taking - even after a good bouncing! t.xx


Hi Lucy,
thanks for your lovely comment about my necklace....I am feeling quietly proud!!
Yes I'm in Bridport too....just around the corner from Colette...about 2 minutes walk!!
I haven't been crocheting long....did a google search for crochet flowers and found your tutorial....it was the only one that made any sense to me as it had lots of pictures for me to follow!
Thank you!
And of course now I'm addicted.....luckily Colette has a wool shop in her shed...great!

Here's some more granny squares for you, Lucy - http://www.elspeththompson.co.uk/eco_house.html- like you I adore them but have not (SO FAR) managed to make any blankets myself. I expect your eagle eyes have spotted a few others lying around my house....
Have a gorgeous weekend Lucy.
So glad you are feeling 'up' again..
Love and best wishes

Thanks for the tutorial Lucy, very clear. Can I ask if you have a plan for the colour combinations before you start or do you just go with your heart?


thank you for this tutorial, I have now done a few squares for my blanket and was worried about how to put it all together, thanks again xxx

You have inspired me so.
Have a look see over at my blog and see my tri-coloured WIP...thank you Lucy!

Thanks for the tutorial Lucy. It will come in very handy once I've finished my granny squares. Thanks to your wonderful instructions I made a practice square last night and couldn't believe how easy you've made it. I'm now all 'wooled up' are ready for the off. I'm starting small on a cushion but not bad for someone who up until 3 weeks agao had never crocheted a thing!! THANK YOU :)


Thanks Luce! You are a peach through and through. Hope you have a relaxing weekend dear. With all you have been working on, you deserve it.

toodles!!! xxxxx


Hi, Lucy! I found your blog looking for crochet designs for my Mom and SIL... they love it... I do to, but know nothing about crochet... now I'm beginning to think I should learn at least a bit and start doing something beautiful as you do... Mom would love to know how you make those "ric-racs"... she remembers my grandmother making that pattern... can you tell us how to do it? :)


I LOVE your wonderfull and colorful blog.

Bon week-end de France.


just drop by to say, happy world's women day (8/3/09) to u, and to all ur reader out there...

have fun.


Hi Lucy

I hope you don't mind but I mentioned you on my blog post of today. Although I don't know you, your lovely blog has inspired me to start crocheting. Your instructions are very clear and the lovely photos have really made me want to finally do some crocheting. Congratulations on the magazine entries.

Kind regards


Debbie Moss

You have the BEST INSPIRATIONAL blog ever!
Thanks for the inspirational posts, photos and ideas!

You are the best! I love your blog and this is the best tutorial ever! I have not yet made granny squares but it is so on my list! I am currently working on a hexagon blanket, but I feel a break may be in order.
