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

Wow... just wow...


Looks amazing in your photos, but I visited Yarndale and it was even more impressive in real life. Well done to every one who got involved. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to visit again next year!! Sarah


Smiling & crying tears of pride & joy. Amanda's words sum up perfectly the feeling of belonging. Thank you sooo much for the pleasure of hooking bunt, for such an awesome event. Roll on next year. xx

Wow it looks so amazing. Two things spring to mind Lucy.
1. what are you going to do with all that bunting?
2. is it just me or does anyone else get the urge to lie on the table full on bunting and just envelop themselves in all that crochet gorgeousness?!...just me then!

Get the yarndale dates out for next year & I am booking a VIP slot right now!! You (& the other crafty people of Skipton) are fab...makes me want to move up there. I need to create that crafty passion in Lincolnshire where we've just moved to!

Lucy - you are fab x

Natasha Richmond

Looks amazing! What are you doing with the bunting now? You could sell each 5m string and raise money for charity? I would buy one!

Alison Kalotka

Yay!! My 3 wee triangles contributed to this.. The question is "What happens to the bunting???" Will there be a Yarndale 2014?? What will we make next year?? Home many more thousand folk will flock to Skipton and block the roads for miles around??? Wonderful event I hope I can come next year...


This post made me a little teary. What an amazing project... What have you done with it all now?


I loved being a part of it by making triangles for Yarndale. I didn't manage to get over to Skipton but really hope there will be a "next time" so I can see it in person.
Wow Lucy... I hope you feel proud of yourself for bringing us all together in such a magnificent collaboration?! xx


The buntings were our love for you dear Lucy...xo


so beautiful. The bunting and the shared sentiments!


bravo, c'est magnifique

Claire Coffey

The bunting looked sooo fabulous and it was a real kick to spot one of my triangles beside the knit and natter lounge. I was very happy to join in the bunting madness and all your friends did such an amazing job at joining and hanging them. It's such a tangible way for us to express just how much your lovely blog means to us! Well done xxx Claire

Ruth Slater

Lucy, that's fantastic!! Love it! It's a work of art. It needs to be exhibited somewhere for everyone to enjoy. Enjoy your blog and enjoy making your little projects too. I used to crochet with mu Great Aunt when I was little but forgot how to do it until I started following your tutorials. Not, I'm addicted!! Thank you x


Awesome! I felt so privileged to just be a tiny part of it, I can't even begin to imagine what it must feel like to have been the orchestrator of it all. And HURRAY!!!!! for helpful friends for stringing it together with you. I know you must still be pretty shattered but I for one just cannot wait for next year - particularly to see what your "Creative Mind" comes up with next! (and I have already made some more bunting...) xx


It looks fantastic. How inspirational that crafters from all over the world got together to complete this project.
Well done everyone! And Annie for the initiative <3


Oh, Lucy! My heart skipped a beat when I saw that final pic. What a lovely, lovely sight! I do wish I could have seen it for myself. Big congratulations to you for making it possible <3

(I am having my own Creative Vision, now, of all those triangles stitched together into giant hexies and turned into blankets! How lush!)


Hi Lucy, I was delighted to see me triangles amongst those pictured in your blog. I think you were amazing to pull it all together and have enjoyed seeing the pictures of the bunting up at Yarndale, it looked glorious

Lorna PT

Totally superb, brilliant xxx


It's just beautiful. I got a lump in my throat when I read the list of countries it came from. It warms my heart so much to know that somewhere in that rainbow of yarny goodness, are a handful of bunting triangles I sent you from far, far away :-) It was a privilege to be part of it, thank you! xxxxxx

Carolyn Jackson

Hi Lucy, so pleased I sent some bunting over to you, great to see New Zealand in the list. What a lot of work for you, it does look magnificent, so wish I could have been there, but your blogs are wonderful, so good of you to spend so much time on them making so many people happy, I look each day just in case !! and enjoy every one of them.
Thankyou Caro NZ..

The Stitch Sharer

Thank you so much for sharing photos of the beautiful bunting. Your blog gives so many of us so much pleasure and it was humbling to have the opportunity to make bunting triangles as a symbol of hooky friendship and to say thank you.


How wonderful that your dream became a reality!!! So exciting! I love this whole idea. Congrats to all of you who put this together and made it a wonderful success. Some day, I will make it over the pond and visit your wonderful Yarndale!

Thanks for all the joy this post brings!!!!


Wow, those finished (and progress, holy cow!) photos are jaw dropping! So....what happens to all the bunting post-event? (scrolling back through the comments I see I'm not the only one with that question. I like the suggestion about putting them together into blankets. What a cool charity project that would be, coming from so many corners of the world!)

Debbi Li

Well that has just blown me away completely - well done everyone involved xxx

Molly Severtson

That is AMAZING! What a great project. Just incredible!
