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.

All the colours, variety and talents.
I always love the ideas and the crochet work on your blog.
It's bee a long time I read your blog and you are the reason why I wanted to crochet and I wanted to have my own blog, you are inspiring.

I just wanted to be commenter 100 😃


Ohh, just beautiful! I'll bookmark the pattern, thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day!


Thank you so much for your generosity and creativity, Lucy! I love that the birds are out there!


Thank you so much for another beautiful tutorial. I'm supposed to be doing many many other things but right now I'm just sitting and enjoying it on my iPad. Thanks Lucy!!!

Linda aka Crafty Gardener

Wonderful pattern. Have you ever tried Print Friendly? It's a little program you add to your blog and readers can print right from your site. They can decide which part of the text and which pictures they want to print and they can even save it to pdf format.


Thank you so much, Lucy, for taking the time to share the pattern to this lovely creation of yours. It is a precious gift. xx


Thank you so much!


Just smiley loveliness :) I wonder what the collective noun for Bower birds is????
A beauty of Bower birds?
A flourish of Bower birds?
An ahhh of Bower birds?!..............


You were right Lucy it is very long, but absolutely wonderful. Have you thought about a book yet? I'd buy it! Just to soak up the wonderful designs and colours you choose. Magnificent photos again. I have come back to crochet and it's all down to you (well that's what I tell DH when he asks if I really need more yarn!! ;o)

Holly Nelson

Gorgeous! I wish I could crochet!


Hi Lucy, why don't you link your posts to a pdf writer like "Print Friendly"? You don't have to worry about making pdf's and if someone wants to save your pattern to make later they can use the pdf option embedded in your post? I use it for anything that I want to turn into a pdf in my online searches. MUCH better than saving word documents all over the place and wasting paper printing things out. Cheers for the bower bird pattern. I love your work :)


Oh Lucy, you are the best!! We all know how busy you have been, Family, Yarndale, Studio, and Magazine. Thank you, Thank you a million times over for taking the extra amount of time to keep up Attic 24 and provide this unique and beautiful pattern! You have provided us all with inspiration and a sense of "crochet community" where as some of us may not have; here; where we live. Your generosity is beyond compare! xoxo A degree in embroidery? Please explain? what does a person plan with it when they go into embroidery?

Lucy, that is so kind, they are lovely and your twiggy photos are a masterpiece. Good luck with your future workshops too.

I started my bird....almost done. I have a tip for getting the washers on the safety eyes: after you have them positioned, give them a blast with a hair dryer on high for a few seconds. The washer slides down easier.

Thank you sooooooooooo very much Lucy! I have been longing for you to share this beeyootifull little bird since you first introduced him to us.

You have given so much detail and fabulous pictures too, I am really, really grateful. I struggle with lack of sensation in my hands due to Multiple Sclerosis and am trying to learn how to crochet. Holding on to the wool and make any necessary movements is tricky 😊 I really could do with you sitting beside me!!

Do you run any workshops for absolute BEGINNERS? I am the girlie who Messaged you on FB about Little B's Watermelon plant. We still have one for him!! We are caring for it along with our own ....
My husband would very happily bring me up with the plant, if you would like it. It will happily grow amongst your happy planted pots! Do let me know.

Big love and thank you so much for this wonderful gift, again,

Rachel x


Wonderful, Lucy, thank you so much. I hope you are feeling better and none the worse of putting this tutorial together for your many, many fans. Annette


Thanks so much for this beautiful pattern. I just love your blog! All your posts are so inspirational and amazing!!!

Sarah-Jane Ireland

Oh-so-beautiful birds! Love them- so colourful and cheerful♡


Brilliant landing!!! HUGE THANKS!

Dear Lucy your bird pattern is out of this world. What lovely presents they would make. As I have commented before you should write your own book!
With that bower bird on the front cover it would be sure to fly off the shelves!
Thank you.xx


Oooh, these are just adorable!!! Thank you so much for generously making a pattern and sharing it with us!

Bridget Carpenter

I echo everyone else's thoughts about your generosity and creativeness. I come to your blog to cheer me up and it never fails. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Thank you so much! You are so generous to share with all of us.


Dear Lucy. Thank you soooooo much! I have been wanting to make these since you first showed them.
You are very dear to share your wonderful creativity with all of us.
I especially love the little sun!
I am going to make one each for my kids to hang above their beds, and then one for me :)

Love Sue in Canada
