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.

Oh my gosh, I have just "found you" thanks to recommendation from my cousin in Indiana. I love your work and flair for color also! I will start small and try a Mandala Flower! You are inspiring! Thank you

Whenever I need cheering up, I hop on over to your Blog, Lucy....your cheerful spirit and colors brighten me right up!
Here in Southern California, weather is actually quite hot today (in 90's (F)) and my 40+ rose bushes are all abloom along with lovely geraniums, allysum and other various colorful flowers....makes me want to crochet a garden!

Thanks for your cheerful spirit!

Have you shared the changes you made to the Mandala? Yours is lovely!
You are so good with color mixing, Lucy! you truly are an inspiration to all. Thank you!


Thank you for signposting me to Barbara's Made in K town pattern. I've just made a big one for a clock face.

All mandala are beautiful. I liked the one with the yellow border the most.


Thank you for sharing this lovely pattern!


These are soooo lovely! I have been thinking about them since you first posted them. I love the Granny Mandala pattern over at the Crochet with Raymond page and have made several. I really like how these mandalas have so many intermingled colors! I'm inspired again Lucy, thank you!

I love these patterns and colours, I have just started to crochet myself and made myself some slippers. I am glad that I have found your blog!

Hi Lucy. I'm quite new to your blog but love it as I've just started crocheting after a 30 year gap!! I've already made 2 of your crochet projects, the Mandala amd the Little Owls, by following the links on your blog. Thanks so much for inspiring me!


Very pretty and they remind me of Jane Smallcombe's work... have you heard of her? I think you might like her work... http://www.etsy.com/shop/designedbyjane

Ooh aren't these a treat! Lovely choice of colours, as always. I've been making some bunting for Yarndale this past week - so excited about it! Been looking into accommodation today :)

Bunting ready for lift-off, Lucy! Hope you like it - it was such fun to make (especially the pom-poms!)! Can you let me know where you'd like it sent? Your mandala flowers are lovely - they'd look stunning yarn-bombing one of those metal railing fences you get in parks! Looking forward to seeing what you have in mind for them! E x

What a delightful, colorful post. Thank you. I just came from another site, and the blogger, Trish, from Notes of Sincerity was talking about how she loved your blog. I agreed -- and thought I'd skip over here to tell you thank you, again. Your talks about walks outside with the little folk always warms my heart and reminds me that life should be filled with little things.

At your convenience, can you send me an email? I have a small question that I don't want to post in virtual blogland. Thanks. Have a great week, Leslie

They are so colourful and beautiful !


Hey Lucy, you've been doing mandalas all along...your blooming flower cushion, and your happy flower decoration! Mandalas are thot of as spiritual in some cultures, a good form of meditation, etc, etc. The colors of a mandala work with our psyche to balance our inner self and all that. Hey, us hookers instinctively know these things. lol Hugs, MO


What fun! Plus I bet they are fast to make. Thanks for the recommendation!


Beautiful, as usual. I have never tried the steam trick...I will have to give it a shot!

Emily Clark

The mandalas are beautiful!!!! Such stunning colors!


You have an excellent sense of color.Whatever you make is far better than the original.Thanks for the colorful joy you share with us.

Love them, wish I wasn't a beginner in crochet. Want to make some now!


Mandala crochet is color therapy! They are beautiful! Hugs, MO
