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

oooo Lucy i can`t wait to see your Likkle Robin! Lovely photos as usual, never mind the weather they are still brill! Thanx for the email.
Love Carole xxxx


Since I work in a pharmaceutical environment I'm used to the ol WIP terminology - have to say though, it sounds oh so much nicer when applied to all things hooky :)

You sound so happy and excited today! :)

I'm looking forward to seeing your robin...

as soon as I read your first blog post with the birds I wanted to make a robin. So glad you are thinking the same way and that now I don't have to stretch my lazy brain to figure it out, just follow your tutorial (hopefully tomorrow!). Thanks!

I loved the idea of making those little birdies into christmas tree decs, that robin is going to be darn cute x

Lovely work, as usual! I would love to see one or two pictures of how you weave in the ends on your granny squares. As a knitter just recently come to crochet, I can't quite figure out the best way to do it. (You know, in your copious spare time. . .)


Oh a robin - genius! My favourite bird. Really looking forward ot seeing him.

Happy hooking you clever thing!


LOVE Your WiP's!!!! xoxoxo Jen in Boise


The birds and your cot blanket are wonderful. I know you've probably been asked this a million times so here is a million and one. How do you decide on colors as you're making each square? Do you plan it all out or do you just reach in a bag and use the color your hand lands on? The combinations are so wonderful. Your home must look very cheery with such vibrant colors all around.



hello lucy,
thank you so much for your post and all the stories you are sharing with me/us.
I always like your posts, they are interesting and so warm.Thank you!
and the birds are such a good idea, perhaps I make one too.(well, one day I mean)
bye bye from katja (hamburg)


I like to say I'm working on my PhD... (projects half done) Love all your WIPs by the way... especially the little birds.


The Robin is going to be great and the baby blanket is looking brill!!!! Enjoy a cosy evening x


Love the birds and the blanket looks very cosy.Hope that you and the bump are keeping well.I love reading your blog but don't usually leave any comment as you get so many,managed to get in early today! Take care

Love Sue xx


Lucy, your bump blanket is looking fantastic, you are so going to enjoy wrapping your bundle in a blanket made with so much love. Love the photo of the shop, it's very pretty, I can see why you liked it. Loving the birdies, I'm excited for the new patterns you are going to be sharing. Today is very dark and dreary here as well, calling for a foot of snow minimum, wishing we had a fire. Enjoy your evening, all nice and cozy.

I think your robin will be wonderful! I think I will do some of them for a friend, whos home is just white, beige and brown. It will suite her home. I'm more into purple and pink, so I guess it will be some birds for me in that colours ;)

I see you're "clocking" your work too (11 minutes for one square, that's fast!!) :-)

Now, I must finish the dinner! The kids are probably starving, while I was waiting for your post...

Love Anna xxx
