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.

Your adorable little Happy Flower has taking over my whole week!! Seaching out buttons, and little jewel balls, and of course, YARN YARN and more YARN!! Over the years my decorating has become very bland.....and discovering YOU has sparked color in my life!! Thank you so much for awesome work!! You are a gem in a bland old womans life!! Lol!

It's been several days since this blog and I have not seen a tutorial for the flower. Did I miss something or are we still waiting? Thanks, Lucy.


Utterly beautiful, as always. I always come to your blog when I need some colour therapy, love it!! Just wish I could crochet! But a question, my daughter is getting married later in the year and has just had some funky crochet sandals made for her (soft vintagey beigey colour) and her 2 flower girls (aqua) to wear, and Nana here is going to bling them up a bit!! Have you ever used sequins or pearls or such like to embellish, just hoping to see something embellished (basically, to copy!!)

Please can you tell me where you buy your rowen wool as been searching and its quite expensive take me ages to collect the colours needed. cheapest I have found is £3.55 is that about the price

June Cornish

this is just so lovely it cheers mre up when I look through all the stuff you have made , the most beautiful colours you use brighten my day. I am going to have a go at the flower when I can get some wool together . Keep up the good work.

Thankyou for the tutorials Lucy. Have just finished the lovely flower decoration, feeling pretty pleased with the result too. Also put finishing touches to the ripple blanket I started just before Christmas. Wish I had a smart phone and knew how to upload photos of them...Have been a bit backward in this area, will take the plunge soon.



This is absolutely the reason I want to learn to crochet :) beautiful things to put in my house to make me smile, and your description of your feelings towards the childish charms of plastic beads made me smile and nod my head in agreement - embrace the inner child - I look forward to the tutorial and will no doubt battle with it until I achieve something nearly as lovely!


this is beautiful! i must try making this one day. i love all your hooky creations! i wish i was as good as you!!


GREAT!! I can hardly wait for the tutorial, this is such a pretty gift I want to make somebody...!

Michelle Rice

I LOVE your blog, it never fails to cheer me up and inspire me. Your tutorials are fabulous and perfect for those who are relearning to crochet and also great for teaching older children how to crochet. Your blog is a ray of sunshine in the blogosphere. Keep up the brilliant blogging! :) x

Hello Lucy, I have started crochet for the first time ever and its a great hobby. I have seen all of your wonderful crochet and its amazing and you are my role model. I would love to meet you (if you meet people) I am 12 and you have exspired me very much and made me more into chrocheting xxxx
Love from Leah xxx I hope to get a reply x


I soo happy to see your block.
Grannys are very beautiful.
Have a good day


It's beautifull!!!


Absolutely CUTE!!


Oh Yes, can't wait to try the Happy Flower. But getting to see Little B's fingers and toes makes me warm inside. Thank you for the photos. My son is in Scotland and seeing your outdoor photography helps me feel closer to him.


Lucy, I, too, am ready and waiting for the tutorial for Happy Flower!

I also want to tell you that you inspired me to start a granny stripe blanket as my very first crochet project. I took a 2-hour class on crochet basics and started browsing Ravelry for projects for beginners and found your tutorial. Your instructions are very good and clear and so easy to follow with the photos that I couldn't help myself. THANK YOU!

I also love the colors you use. They make me happy.

God bless you.

¡Paz y bien!


Hi Lucy,
what do you think about arranging a Lucy's Pack with Rowan Cotton? In Italy is quite common to find thin cotton but not thick one and is impossibile to choose colours through internet
Thank you!!


Love this flower, it truly is a "Happy Flower" this is Definately going on my "To Do" list !!! As always you make the most beautiful & Interesting things !!


Thank you so much Lucy for offering us a tutorial for the happy flowers. They truly look very happy and so will I when I make some! Looking forward to your tutorial and thanks again! Greeting from Germany

Brenda B.

Can't wait!! I love this so much.. Just looking at all of your beautiful projects is so relaxing..


How utterly charming this is!


Your flower looks beautiful! Wish I could make things like this!! It's so cheerful!

Happy new week!
