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. 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

I have this big question. I come from a very hot place where the temperature goes to about 45 degree C. So I cannot make the usual patterns shown with thick yarns. Because of the hot climate these yarns are not used and thus its not even available.
I wanted to know if these designs shown with thick yarns can be made with fine yarns. If yes, how can I adjust the patterns. I am a self learned crochet beginner. Please help me with this...


Jus checked out the final bids for these, wow! What a fantastic result! You must all be chuffed to bits and I hope, very proud of yourselves x


Wow, the dolls raised so much!! That's brilliant, well done to all involved!


Congratulations on the widespread publicity your project has rightly attracted. This is such a wonderful project, for such a wonderful cause. I will donate in your honor.


Good on you - they are soooo adorable - hope they go for much higher than the £300 - £400 they are currently listed for - they are sooo worth it!

Congrats to all,a job well done!


Wow, these are amazing, Ive just checked the Ebay page for each and the bids are epic!! You must be soooo proud of this, these are truly amazing one of pieces. Well done Lucy! x


The dolls are so cute. I love Mac's owl hat, I crocheted one just like it for my daughter :)

I don't blame you asking for cash on here for such a worthwhile cause and for such fabulous little dolls. They look amazing and thank you for sharing the piccies and the story, x


How adorable! What amazing projects. The photo's look inspiring and the dolls are just to good for words. They ooze with character. Well done you!


Ich habe Ihren Blog zufällig entdeckt und freue mich jedes Mal über Ihre tollen Puppen, Blumen und weiteren Arbeiten. Ich liebe die strahlenden Farben!!
Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland!


Congratulations with this fabulous project. A great way to mix crafting with social care hoping to make a difference and enjoying yourselves while making good friends in the process. Well done to you all x

Such a lovely project :)


They are brilliant! And is it weird that I feel so proud of my blogging friends when I see their makes on The Guardian website??

Really gorgeous.


Omg Lucy, I just took a peek at the auctions, can you believe how well they are doing already... actually I totally can believe it as they are UNBELIEVABLY adorable!! I just wish they weren't already out of my price range ;) especially that cute little Maisie, I love her hair so much! Well done all of you xx


This is such a beautiful project - me & my partner are doing are part by answering the phones in the call centre I work for comic relief donations :)

Brilliantly said, Lucy - it was an absolute delight to see your gorgeous blankets first hand in London last weekend, I had hoped to meet you first hand too! Another time. It is a very humbling and heartwarming project and brilliant that the dolls have already raised so much money, everyone involved should be very proud xxx

Fabulous project I hope they raise thousands! Will definitely be happy to donate:-). Love your little blankets. Nikki x


You are killing me with these photos ~ everything is so absolutely adorable !!!


I think they are all absolutely gorgeous. Glad to see they are attracting such good bids already.
All beautiful but little Maisie really tugs at my heartstrings.
I've just been involved with the Craftivist Collective to raise awareness for Save the Children's "Race Against Hunger" (IMApiece), culminating with a meeting to hand over one of my jigsaw pieces to Ed Miliband yesterday afternoon.
I think it is absolutely wonderful that crafters are getting together to make a difference. I get happy tears too.

Sooo cute!


Lovely post, Lucy. The dolls have moved firmly out of my affordability range now, but I am thrilled to have been part of this brilliant project. And I was overjoyed to see your blankets for real when we filmed last Sunday, and to find the colours just as intense in real life as we are all used to seeing on your blog. Just think how many malaria nets they have already bought! It's both astonishing and humbling.


Its a fab story and I so wish I could afford to bid/win one of those dolls.

Instead I will be supporting by buying noses/sending boys to school with money for their events.


Congratulations on the huge success,it's a lovely story for all crafty people!
