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

Hi Lucy,
Your work is sooooo nice, and finally after years of trying I can follow a written crochet pattern, your tutorials are so easy to follow, thank you. I will be doing a lot of them 😄


Hi is there a pattern for your Christmas wreath because it looks amazing and would love to make one fir next year x x

Which needle do you use for getting the embroidery floss through the buttons? I'm struggling! Also is there any reason you chain 4 to form a ring rather than magic circle?

I'm rubbish at sewing, a tutorial on sewing onto crochet would be so great! Thanks


Thank you so much.I´ll try. Regards from Buenos Aires, Argentina

Hi Lucy - This is a wonderfully simple and effective decoration, Thnak You so much. It is also a perfect project for me at this time of year when our temperatures start to regularly climb over 30 degrees(northern Australia) The baubles are small and I am using cotton to get around that 'fuzzy' feel of wool when it's too not and sticky. Best wishes, Neroli


Debo decir que el mejor sitio de la Web, tu explicacion es EXCELENTEE, incomparable. Buenisimo que lo encontre, muchas gracias por tu tiempo y por compartir. GRACIAS un beso.


your sight always puts a smith on my face


i like your worke


Hi! I love all your tutorials and I am making my way slowly through them all. Why aren't any of my circles laying flat? I following to at T as far as I can tell by the picture, and the circles for these baubles are even wavier than the circles for the birds. Do you have any advice on what I might be doing wrong?

Dear Lucy,

My colleauge sent me your blog. Now it's 1 o'clock in the night, I am tired like hell, I should sleep after ten hours of work, but I cannot stop reading your blog, and wonder about that wonderful stuff you create!!!

Just lovely as always Lucy. Today on my blog, I mention you and your lovely little balls you crochet as well as Christmas baubles to make with yarn. Pop over and visit, you are most welcome! http://eclectichomelife.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/knitted-christmas-baubles_15.html?showComment=1387195708501


Hi Lucy, just wanted to tell you that your blog really inspires me! I am from the Netherlands, I just started to crochet about a week ago and I can't stop! Your clear and step-by-step tutorials and beautiful patterns make it a lot easier for me to practice and make beautiful things than any Dutch blog or pattern site, even though I have to look up words sometimes! I just started to make a pendulum of bauble and star decorations as a baby gift for my best friend who is pregnant. She can hang it above the baby dresser or crib for the baby to look at or play with. Wish me luck! ;-)
Many many thanks!

Lucy, this is a great pattern - it just had to feature on my post with other baubles 9http://made-inhome.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/making-baubles-patterns-review.html) - so different though! Thanks for sharing

Nikki E

Thank you for posting this lovely tutorial. I just wanted to take a minute to say that I've been crocheting for quite a long time now, but this is the first time I've ever seen anyone attach a new color of yarn in the way that you have shown here - and I love it! I'm going to do it like this from now on, thank you so much.
