The Bower Bird is awesome. When are you going to write your book? Wish I were coming to Yarndale but I live 6000 miles away in rural Tennessee in the US. Thanks for the lovely pattern and tutorial. I have made several of the Neat Ripple Pattern for our prayer shawl ministry. Looking forward to reading al about Yarndale.

Dear lucy I really enjoy your posts. Thank you very much
I was looking for this site Deramores they discounts on yarn
But I'm asking you for some advice before doing internet shopping
How many yarn should I buy for a big afghan on crochet bigger than queen size
And a yarn that is warm
I hope i did explain myself properly
Thanks again


Hello lovely! We never managed that end of term coffee, did we? Perhaps in September. I am slightly in awe of how much you achieved before 7 am on a Saturday morning... My two are up at 6 every day lately, it's so warm and bright, I can't blame them. Your workshop looked brilliant, those ladies created some individual and creative birds. xx


Oh yeah, I can't wait! I love me some little birdies, especially yours!


On a different note.......just made the vegetation burgers you wrote about recently. They are soooo tasty. Thanks!!!!!


It's great when everyone can really enjoy their day and also have something so lovely to take home with them.


I so enjoy your blog, it never fails to make me smile to see your beautiful crochet creations.

The birds are adorable. I'm wondering if I could learn to make some? They'd make a nice Christmas gift for my little niece and likely for my own three boys as well.

Are you based in Yorkshire or the Peaks? I'm in East Yorkshire myself, so I'm wondering if I'm too far to attend one of your workshops sometime?


Great post as always. I absolutely adore your little table corner in your garden, especially with the crochet blanket and cushion. So cosy and colourful! I hope you feel 100% right soon :)

Hi Lucy, Thank you so much for the little bird. I have been waiting so long for it. Love your life and I admire you sincerely.


Ohhhh! I am so excited with the Bower Bird pattern Lucy! I can't wait to start making those little birdies! I love your patterns! I have made your Granny Patchwork Blanket, your Big Blanket and a lot of other bits and pieces from your patterns. Your work is amazing!:)


excited beyond belief! beautiful birds-- love checking in to see what lovely things you are working on.

Hi Lucy, I posted a comment on your facebook page but thought I might post here too as I was so excited to hear about your degree in embroidery. Pretty please would you show us some of your work? I've just started to embroider and would love to be inspired by some Attic24 embroidery.


Congratulations - sounds like a wonderful day with lots of colour and smiles. Love the bird pattern.


Your birdies sont craquants! lovely

Oh, I can't wait for the pattern! I'm getting geared up for my group's big event this week- The (international) Quilters' Hall of Fame is in my town and this week is our annual Celebration. Two quilt shows, classes, lectures, vendors, induction of our newest honoree. And I have a number of things to do. I hope I might be able to attend Yarndale in 2015 as my husband the historian is itching to go to Ilkley as he just discovered his grandmother's people were from there. Win, win!


I love your posts, and your tutorials have helped me with my quest to learn to crochet, they are beautifully written and so inspirational too! Looking forward to your new pattern and your next post!


Lovely birds ! And so colorful, it brings joy in a cloudy day ! Thanks for sharing :)

WHy is it little ones always rise s-o early?! At least mine did, and the youngest still does, even as a teenager( which I'm thankful I don't have to supervise those early mornings anymore!)lol Congrats to you and all the ladies on another wonderful flock of birds! I love to eat breakfast, or any meal outside. We try to as much as possible. Wow! A BA in embroidery, I bet that was fun!

Good to see you haven't forgotten your stitchy roots!

You're doing so well keeping all those plates a-spinning, family, workshops, Yarndale, mandalas, blog ... phew! Well done Luce :-)

Love from your old stitchy pal,

Katie B x x x

What a wonderful day you had with the ladies. I just love the little birds. Thank you.


Hello from a cold and wintry SAfrica! I am so excited that you are going to post a pattern for your Bower Bird ... it is on my wish/to-do list to do your class if I make my way up to the UK in the not too distant future! Looking so forward to the tutorial Lucy Thank You xxx Pat :)


Dear Lucy, this sounds like an absolutely PRICELESS day! And of course it was not NECESSARY to get up this early, but just think of the wonderful memories your early bird little B (and you) will have when he is grown-up B.
