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.

Thanks for telling us about Yarndale. I will be helping from California with the Bunting once they post the instructions. So excited to help with a yarn bombing - have been wanting to do this for ages!


Hmmmmm..any chance Yarndale would consider a roadshow to Australia??? :-) Why don't WE get things like this? NO FAIR!!

Liesbeth Houtman

Here I am again, just asking if you will PLEASE place the pattern on your blog of the FRENCH BOWER BIRD..... I have read this question several times, please do, please? So while you are creating your chair for Yarndale, as I have read on your Facebook page, we, loyal followers and readers of your blog, can make bower birds?! FYI: I am not on Facebook.
Much love, Liesbeth.


So cool. You ladies rock. If there wasn't a huge Atlantic ocean between our countries, I would be booking a hotel right now.

I love that the table seems decorated with all of your fun stuff. I'm so glad you're a blogger. I am so excited to sit down with my cup of coffee and read your latest posts. I'm rippling along on my blanket and looking at my pretty granny pillow and it's all because of you!


Your sheep is so wonderfully fun! I just love it. Have a great time at Yarndale I so wish I could jump the pond to join you. ~Kelly

Lucy, Firstly Bravo!! and for all the others who have put this idea into action. A Festival just for all of us who love yarn WOW. As a spinner, weaver and rugmaker the whole attraction for me is the colour and what happens when colours are put together. Your blog (brilliant) is inspirational and has drawn me back into crochet in a big way! Can't wait for Yarndale!! Thanks for all you do and the colourful world you share. bless you.


oh...you're going to have so much fun!

That would be a dream come true to get a chance to go to a event like that. You cafe group looks inviting and comphy.


I love Skipton and particularly that cafe which hubby and I go to quite often as we are veggie - but never on Thursday mornings - yet :)
This sounds great - not as big and impersonal as Harrogate and nice and local to me from Leeds. I love looking at your photos and recognise some of the places you show and try to guess at the others. Hope to meet you at Yarndale - and I love the sheep. Nice!!!


I love the sheep, what a great idea! And so very cute too. Would love. Go to the fair but its way too far from me as we live in the south east!


wonderful baa-baa! I wish these types of things took place where I live!


Hi Lucy love the sheep you and the ladies in the group are very clever. I would love to go to Yarndale but a bit to far away.
Hope you all have fun.Take care vina xxxxx


Simpaticissimo! Complimenti per il tuo blog, una vera fonte d'ispirazione!
L'ho segnalato nel mio per il tuo cuscino a petali: http://iltempotraledita.blogspot.it/2013/01/work-in-pr.html
Grazie per il tutorial! A presto!


OMG! Utterly thrilled to have been accepted as an exhibitor at Yarndale. I can't wait to be there!

If I won lotto, I will fly over from New Zealand! Oh! That sheep! I LOVE!

The sheep is so inspired! Ah, if only I could make the fantastical trip across the pond for yarndale! I'm also hoping to win the lottery. :D

Linda Wallberg

oh my god! that is so cool!


Brilliant idea, and for those needing an excuse to bring families to Skipton that weekend, there's also the amazing puppet festival with shows for all ages and lots of fun street events to enjoy free of charge. Get them here then sneak off to Yarndale!


Love the sheep! If I was nearer to Yarndale, I would so be there, sounds amazing! Well done :D
