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 am in too Lucy, and posted the information on my FB fan page, Sanderellas. I think it will be so much fun to participate!


Siobhan Keens

I MUST remember to make one of these! Then I can see it in September. So looking forward to it


Hi Lucy,
Couldn't resist making a mandala for you! I used Wink's Spoke Mandala pattern in a rainbow effect of colours. Her's a link to her pattern -
Can't wait to see what you do with them! I wonder how many you'll get?...

PS Thanks for a lovely blog!

Fiona Marchant

i like poshting


J'adore ce que vous faites au crochet.
C'est très beau et très bien crocheté.
Quelle chance d'avoir du temps libre pour faire tout ceci.


Love the idea Lucy! Would love to send you one from India:)



Hi Lucy my first mandala made and posted off to you so you should receive it soon, i had a bit of a disaster with the glue, I wasn't sure how much to put on and the yarn kept soaking it in so i kept putting more on, never mind if it is wrecked just chuck it in the bin and I will have to do another one for Yarndale


yes, Yes, YES!!! We have Mandala madness! Can't wait to get working on these, though as others have said, how can we whittle it down to just ONE?? But remembering your pics of the massed bunting parcels last year it would be wrong of us to drown you in mandalas... will just have to make a million for myself and pick one for you! Thanks so much for sharing, as always.

I'm in again this year.. . have not done a mandala yet and this is the perfect opportunity !!!
And I like the ice of just one so that we concentrate all efforts on that one !!

Love the idea. . .


My mandala is on it's way to you. I can't wait to see the final result!
Good luck with the preperations for Yarndale, enjoy!

Thea Whalley

Oh dear, I don't think I have the right wool for this...I suppose I have to buy new wool *sigh*. I'm in!


I made bunting last year so definitely on for this.Can't wait to get going.I put a post on my blog the other day about yarn bombing and showed some photos of it at Anglesey abbey near Cambridge and Sizergh Castle near Kendal.


I made mine last night ... just need to buy some glue and it will be on its way to you from St Louis, Missouri!

Hi Lucy, I made my very first Mandala wheel and will be sending it to you today from Loganville, Georgia. I hope you like the colors. I have been crocheting for years but this is the first time I tried this project so I hope you like it. Thank you for all the great instructions I have been crocheting several of your patterns and I really love the colors!


Rainbow stitch cushion (yes), Starflower mandala (yes), Jolly chunky bag (yes), Yarndale mandala wheel (yes), House cleaning (no), ironing (no).
Thank you so much for all your inspiration Lucy, I am loving ALL the fantastic project ideas and have them all on the go at once !!! What to do next? Louise xxx


Whoa! is right! That Wooly-Art-Wall is gorgeous!
Great tip for stiffening!


Lucy, while I love your blog and have been following it for about a year now, I have a real issue with the term "mandala" which is actually a religious term and, not a term I feel should be diluted in a trivial or crafty way. I would have been much happier if you'd just said "wheel" - but that's purely a personal view. However, with all this "mandala-mania", I have sadly decided not to attend the Yarndale festival this year - the word "mandala" makes me so agitated in this crochet context, that I feel I wouldn't enjoy myself as before. I'm sure you'll have a fab event, and I hope to be back next year!

WIll certainly enjoy whipping up a Mandela for you. Can completely understand the excitement over the Tour de France. Tomorrow the 'Giro D'Italia' kicks off in Belfast, then runs around the North Antrim Coast on Sat, before the final stretch down to Dublin on Sunday. To say Northern Ireland has gone Giro mad is an understatement. Everything has turned pink - including local sheep and our iconic Harland & Wolff cranes.


Great fun! Thanks for the tutorial. Here's a link to mine, which will be winging it's way down to you shortly!https://iamsimplyhooked.wordpress.com


Lucy I would love to make one of these for you. I hope it remains flat travelling internationally...worth a try I think! I'm in. X


I can't wait to make one of these cute mandalas! I love your blog, lucy.
Greetings from austria! nina.
