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.

Could you just give us a few clues as to how you get that lovely red surround with the little catch stitches....??

Catching up on your blog so this is a late comment, but WOW! What a great Christmas card. Your crochet talent just amazes me.


Oh, this is gorgeous! I really love this cute owl. And I'm wondering what it might find in it's stocking....



Oh! So lovely card!

Maria Ibanez

Wonderful work! Can you please tell me where can I get a needle book like the little house that is on the pictures?


I've followed your blog for a year or 2 but never commented til now...love this card and the idea of it. "greedy for colour" does these too and she sells them...there's definitely a market for them. All the best and merry Christmas from an Australian/Otley lass.


Gorgeous colors and such a funky little fellow. :) He makes me smile.

Maria Ibanez

Very pretty! I love the little case next to the card where can I get one like that?

Love it! Too cute. Great blog.TY!


Oh, this really made me smile! How sweet, fun, and festive!


I love your creations and I'm following one of your tutorials currently and have more planned. If you ever consider requests then, since colour really is your thing, I would love to see how you would put together a blanket that was kind of like a beautiful stained glass window. I would like to make something like that, but I just don't know how! Anyway, it's just a humble little idea.

Hi Lucy,I just want to thank you for sharing your inspiring crochet and wonderful pictures with us all. On a dull drizzly day just to feast my eyes on all those fabulous colour combinations lift the spirits and set the old brain thinking about the next project!! Thank you, thank you thank you! from another happy hooker.


I love the little owl....great job and using up odds and ends too. Great idea! Cheers!


Hey check you out with your modflowers cat and mice in the background, I see you lol!! xxx


That is freaking awesome! :D


I am not creative and this is why I never would have thought to place the branch horizontally on the background. But if I were an owl, I am sure I would only perch on a horizontal branch. If an owl can think of that, why can't I?


Love your card, it's gorgeous :) a very talented young lady


As every year, the Christmas card is more beautiful than I see network! the tree you did last year was beautiful but this year I like a lot your Christmas card. Have a Merry Christmas., Lucy! Kisses from Catalonia!


Such a cute idea!!


Lucy where do you get your eyes from? I want to make a little family of owls but I need eyes - I've had a look on line but can't find any I like xx


Wow, that is stunning Lucy! I would LOVE to buy some if you did decide you wanted to sell them!
