The Pie Patch

United Kingdom

My name is Lucy and I am The Pie Patch. I make inexpensive, hearty food; non-faff and preferably with as little washing up as possible. I love to crochet. I am self-taught and a hoarder of far too much yarn.

I am the long-suffering wife of an exiled Scot, the mother of two girls, and a self-employed proofreader. I fear the latter might be an open invitation for you to point out every error I ever make on these pages so, yeah ... bring it! I may feed you into submission.

So here's my humble blog. It contains little slices of everything I love - food, crochet, cloth pads, kids and saving money. I hope you enjoy it. You can contact me by email ( or through my Twitter page ( PR friendly if it fits the style of what I do.
