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.

Lovely garland Lucy. Colours so bright and cheerful.

I love this! So pretty. The bells are a great touch.

So Happy & Colorful! Exactly what I needed🌈
Thank you Lucy! This is truly delightful🥰


Oh, so cheerful! Love the sparkle & jingle bells, too.
Just last night I came across a tutorial on YouTube of very festive, colorful crochet hanging twirly “corkscrews” with dangling beads but it was in Spanish & not sure I can figure it out, but I’m gonna try..they really speak to me & I bet you’d love them too. Also, she made the cutest colorful roosters..I’m gonna be sad if I can’t make these..but I bet you can. 🙂 Oh, and I love your Reindeer! I tried Amigurumi & I too have a crooked eye animal😆..mine is a pink pig & it makes me laugh when I see it.
Have a Merry Christmas!


What a beautiful garland - and I love the Quality Street colours! This year, I made myself a pom-pom wreath to decorate our front window using the left over wool from the Dahlia Spike blanket.
Think I'll have to invest in some brighter colours now though - they're very tempting!

Gorgeous colour choice and garland Lucy....❤
Hope you and your family enjoy a lovely time over Christmas..and look forward to a much brighter 2021.....given all that 2020 brought us..
But your blogs ALWAYS cheered us up..thank you for doing so..

Need something to hang in my bedroom. This garland may fit the bill!
I was looking for a tiny project for when I cannot hold onto a blanket (have 6 of those on the go).
Hmm. need to buy more of those invisible' hooks to hang it on. Dah! need to make it first.
Thank you!!
Merry Christmas :-)


Thank you. It is beautiful and perfect on your mantel. I am having a difficult time getting in the festive mood this year. Seeing this certainly gives me a happy thought. Thank you.

Charlotte Pountney

Thank you; I have tiny tree; I will make some tiny stars!

Sandra Struggles

Thank you
What lovely ideas you have


Gosh it's lovely, I think it's maybe too late to make one for this year but I have it pinned for next year and may make some for gifts too. Thank you for the pattern Lucy.xx


Did you make the two angels that are hanging from your candle holders? I would love to make some of those. Is there a pattern or instructions? The whole mantle looks just beautiful!


Awesome! Absolutely love it!

Beautiful. The orange one puts me in mind of Christmassy orange slices, and I love the stars in between. Your mantel is looking lovely as ever, the garland looks just right under your illuminated houses. I found my little house yesterday and was happy to find it still lights up.


Love it, it’s so festive and bright. I’ll put this on my own list to make next year. Our boat (yes we live on one) needs a bit of cheer.

If you ever have to thread tiny bells with impossible holes again, I recommend an old fashioned needle threader. It saves so much frustration.

Thank you and very retro and contemporary as I have seen a reemergence of brightly coloured lights on trees and houses here. Have a wonderful Christmas and keep posting the photos of Skipton etc. Have booked to come back in March. God bless x


Dear Lucy, thank you so much for sharing this lovely pattern/tutorial! For the last few years December is my crochet challenge month for the Dutch fundraising happening 3FM Serious Request for the Red Cross. As I am halfway now, I can start with this one ;-) Wishing you merry X-mas & Happy New Year! Kind regards from Holland, Sandra (HandySandy)

Maria Salgado Zajac

Merci beaucoup, vous êtes une merveilleuse personne. Bonnes Fêtes 👏🤩🥰🙏🏼🌈😘

Teresa Kasner

It's wonderful, Lucy! It sure does dress up and finish off your mantel decor. It would look nice across our TV cabinet. Thanks for the tutorial!
((hugs)), Teresa :-)

I LOVE the long ends to tassle idea, sewing in ends is always the worst part of any multicoloured thing :D


So beautiful. Thank you💕
