About Me

  • Hello! 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

You write so beautifully, Lucy, and your pictures are a joy to behold.


That's an amazing amount of bunting, I'm looking forward to visiting 'yarndale' and seeing all your hard work. Well done!! Sarah


LOL, your crochet covered, yarn bombed balls is that? I have to say, I LOVE whoever made the pom pom/daisy bunting. Looks fab!!! xx


Go girl! You and your friends are doing something amazing, fingers crossed for you!

What a response! Perhaps next year Yarndale can raise money for charity by auctioning off some of the bunting!

Jo Roberts

6000, that is absolutely brilliant what amazing pulling power you have...to get crocheted items I mean! I am dressmaking and getting excited about my ball dress EEEK! Jo x


Sounds super busy but very exciting. I love your poster for The Studio, completely perfect way to represent what you both get up to


I still have my flip flops on as well- usually try to wear them until mid October :) xx


My OH will be in shorts til October/November!


oh my goodness bunting, bunting, bunting ... it is amazing the response you have had and now after all the months of planning things are now coming together and I am loving being part of the yarnie journey. I am 99% sure that a pile of those trianlges strung up ready to hang on the table are mine! Oh, OH, Oh love it. Love the train station, love the balls, love the banana cake and love your post ....... and breathe Lucy - 16 more sleeps xx love Joy xx


You are so lucky to have this gorgeous view to look at every day. A real stress reliever, I'm sure. And what an enormous amount of bunting you received. I'm sure it will all be put to good use. Your studio poster looks great. Do you think you might be selling them online?

Rachael Iddon

Eeeek, can't wait to see all that yarny goodness for real. So, are you going to break the record for bunting?


Six thousand!!! That IS bonkers! Love your view, so beautiful and yes we are most definitely still in SUMMER! I won't let it go yet!

Oh and Happy Crochet Day to you and yours!


Hi Lucy, lovely photos, the view from your attic window makes my heart go pitter pat, your poster looks fantastic! By the way, those little peeps will eat you out of house and home soon, just wait for little man to hit those teenage years. Six thousand triangles is amazing, but seriously you must have known there would be heaps, you are so popular and it was such a great idea I'm glad to say mine are amongst that pile. Have a great day xxBrenda

I wish I was in the UK to attend Yarndale. I'm sure it will be amazing. Banana bread! Yum! Going to make some right now. Maybe with some chocolate chips in it! I love reading your blog. I'm always reminded to appreciate what I have, and the people in my life. Thank you.


Great bunting. Love those colours.

Jackie Farrow

When I read your blogs I think of myself back in England. I would love to do what you do. Love reading them, keep them up.


It IS all good, Lucy. You've made me laugh a bit at your declaration, as it has a bit of an echo to what we often say at the shop, "Life is good!" Indeed it is, although when we find the need to remind ourselves, we might be getting a signal that swerves in another direction.

Swerving here. How can there ever be too much colorful bunting! Congratulations to you and to all the others involved in the continuing incoming bunting arrivals.

You are going to have a fabulous event. I do wish I lived across the ocean and closer to Yorkshire so that I could see the Day.



Looking at that fun bunting, I wish I knew how to crochet! Beautiful photos! My favorite magazine here in Pennsylvania is British Country Living. The crocheted bunting looks SO British - love it!

Keep on keeping on! You're doing a wonderful job. Love the "crochet fruit" (take lots of photos please!)Oh lovely...bunting pictures! (I don't see mine but, with 6,000 they're in there somewhere, maybe in one of those boxes on the left.)lol Can't wait to see them all up, what a site!(Would love to see it in person. sigh)


love your poster, immensely!!!!!
good luck with all the triangles!!!!!
xxxxx Ale

Yes, what Vicky said in the first post, your blog makes me so homesick, but that's OK, I'm going to keep feasting on it greedily. Good luck with Yarndale, I'm amazed at the whole thing!
