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

Good luck with Yarndale Alexandra XXX


Wow wish I was going to yarndale! I want to yarn bomb my house! How do I make covers for the balls? I'm guessing they're ball pool balls?!


Keep going Lucy.....you are SO close now and Yarndale is going to be fantastic - can't wait :-). Booked to stay in a cottage in the Dales - got talking to the person in the call centre when I was booking it and now she will be heading to Yarndale too!


Love the idea for the poster! May have to try something similar for my blog (Minnies Memoirs) Can't wait to see the bunting in all its glory!!


It all sounds and looks so exciting! What a lot of effort and work you have put into Yarndale. I hope it is everything you hope for!

It's all wonderful Lucy and so are you. I would love to visit your yarndale and your studio, too far away. but know we will hear all about it.Wonderful views from your attic. Shirley N.Z.


Just a question...What happens to all that lovely bunting once the event is over? So much talent and time, how does it get put to another good use?


Do you realize that if 250 meters is only a fourth of the triangles, you will have over half a mile of triangles? It will be so beautiful!

The poster is just perfect.



I'm sitting here laughing. Six thousand triangles.

You had no idea what you got yourself into when you asked us for triangles, did you? <3

Hi Lucy,
Oh how exciting seeing the train station decorated with bunting on your blog as we are arriving by train and have just brought our tickets! I was very excited to see that and let out a small squeal! You are all working so hard and doing and amazing job. Thank you as so many people will get so much pleasure from all your hard work and hope you all will too. I think you will need a lie down in a dark when when its all over or maybe a nice break in your lovely caravan will have been well earned. Love the new out door fire. Very nice. Enjoy a good weekend and thank you as ever.
Lov Jules xx

Hi Lucy I think you are doing fabulously well and can't wait for Yarndale, hope my triangles arrived safely although, if they haven't, you obviously have more than enough. Have a great weekend Lucy and try and have a wee rest too.
Lots of love as always


Yikes that is an amazing amount of Bunting! Cant wait to see it all strung up. And super gorgeous poster! Well done.


Ha! I just looked at my stats and realised you must have referenced me - I must have missed it when I read your post the first time on my phone.
I think your feet must be getting chilly in those flip flops, Lucy ;)
Keep on keeping on is a very good way to look at it. Such full lives and so much to look forward to. Happy work indeed x

Love your post...made me homesick. Can well see why you are so busy, busy...6000...can't even imagine it!


How on earth are we ever going to spot our "Bunting" contribution amongst 6000? That is amazing! Of course you must post lot's and lot's and lot's of photo's from Yarndale for those of us who are unable to attend. Another dishwasher owner here.....I could not live without mine...we call it "Helga" lol....


Your poster is just amazing!!! I love it.


Oh, lucy, do you already regret asking for help with the bunting? Are your buddies going to help you all the way through to get them all strung? I hope so. Take lots of pictures, ok? Wish I could be there!


Oh Lucy, that second photo of the view from the attic is one to linger over. In any weather.

Best wishes from New York, where the views are a bit different!

wow amazing bunting....one can NEVER have too much. Loving your little critters too on the studio poster....gorgeous! the vanilla squirrel x

Meant to say...LOVE the studio poster! Really beautiful.(Finally spied one of my triangles, Yay. In the photo with the ladies, the one on the right has it, the pink one.) :) Have a great day!


That looks a great banana cake Lucy! Can we have the recipe? I'm always throwing bananas away when they get over ripe.


Nearly broke out in hives just reading this post! Deep breathe Lucy, this is an exciting roller coaster ride for you right now...what a year your having! x


Love the studio sign. It's so good to see that you can create something so straightforwardly.

You're blessed. It all sounds great.


super-duper poster collage!!!

Winwick Mum

It's your own fault, you did ask for bunting :-)x
