Hia Lucy
So glad your feelin back to your normal self again. I know it can take awhile to recover especially from such an overwhelming emotional event like Yarndale!
Love your pictures as always but it especially made me smile to see the one of the cannel and the crossing up to Brook St! This is near where we stayed when we came to Skipton and was our favourite route whenever we went out as its just so lovely to have a walk along by the cannel. Was such a treat and one I could get very use to!
Yes we saw your beautiful yarn bombing and the ducks, just lovely. They certainly put a smile on our faces and everyone who passed seem to stop to have a look. we even had to have our picture taken with them. Thankyou!
Loving the beautiful flowers. You have a lovely market in Skipton.

I need a couple of skeins of the DK yarn that Lucy did one of her Granny Stripes in. Does anyone know where I can order them? I live in the U.S. Thanks!

As mothers, we learn, or we should learn, that there are the highs and lows of life, both as a mother and wife, and as a private person. You go through these undulations all the time. You will hopefully get used to this and not feel so gutted when you are depleted. You KNOW why you are-you've been running on adrenalin for weeks! what you've experienced is a normal coming-back-to-earth after a very busy time. And it will happen again, so be more prepared. Instead, expect it and then you won't be wondering why you are so flat and agitated and out of sorts. Having the little shop upstairs was the beginning of a new life for you, a time when you branched out of the home comfort area. It's been great and opened up a new world, but of COURSE it was going to be different and hard to juggle at times. You're doing fine and you're normal. :-) So glad you have found your equilibrium again. Yarndale news tomorrow, yayyy xxxx


Nice post to read tonight. Glad you're not strung out anymore. Xx


John Lewis is the best for plain white cotton bedding

Hi Lucy a lovely post - glad that you are refreshed - you needed that rest after all the hectic weeks of hard work. I love your flowers, the colours are just stunning - I adore white bedlinen and agree that there is nothing like it as it makes such a wonderful backdrop for all the other colours in the rainbow. A great post as always Lucy, big hugs

Dianne Davis

Love your blog and after three trains loved Skipton and Yarndale. What a day. Fantastic. Looking forward to your pics.
Many thanks.

ps love the bright orange dahlias.


Welcome back, dear Lucy!
On such a rainy and cold day here in Italy your lovely post brings a sunbeam in my morning routine. I'm happy you took your time to be "our Lucy" again. It's so good once in a while to stay in your cosy nest and recover slowly .
I can't wait to see the new ideas you'll kindly share with us. Thanks so much for your colourful hooky world!


I'm Happy your Happy! Your Dahlias are so Orange! It's my favorite color! I am going to see if my grocery store here in So Cal have any. I have Dahlia envy. All smiles.


You do live in such a pretty part of England, it's always lovely to see the surrounding countryside and towns of your home. The colours you choose are always so cheerful too.

Dear Lucy,
Just an all around, Thank you! Thank you for you. Visiting with for me is like you taking a sweet morning walk to buy your flowers.

Stephanie Haworth

Hi Lucy!
So glad your back and feeling like yourself.....congrats on the success of Yarndale that I'm reading about !!!

Stephanie :))


All those lovely colors are so pretty to look at almost matching your projects...can't wait to read about your yarn story.....

Sharon Braxton

So glad you are rested and having some time to yourself. The dahlias are so pretty. I've never really paid much attention to them but those made me sit up and take notice. Glad to have you back, dear Lucy!!! Can't wait to hear your take on Yarndale.



Try Dawson's bedding online , think it is called justlinen, they are fantastic lots of very good quality bedding, including many famous names and in my opinion cheaper than the White company I have always ordered pure cotton bedding in white/cream. They are based in Clitheroe UK. I always use them, delivery £5 for whole order however many things, often with discounts and special clearance offers , towels as well . They offer a very reliable quick service , often by the next day.I really enjoy your blog ,and very well done with your recent yarn bombing event I am counting down to leaving work next Feb, can't wait to learn to crochet,

So glad you are feeling on top of it all. Sounded like the 12 hours on Sat night were exactly what you needed! Love your blog. Thanks for sharing. xx


Can't wait to hear all about Yarndale, but love it that you have 'switched off' for a moment and you can still enjoy your own usual small pleasures. I'll bet your family are all so proud of you and your achievements.

I really like your photo of the reflections in the water and of course I love your orange dahlias. They look to be in such healthy condition - hope they last for many days.
What is it about flower stalls ? - has to be the colour but also the fragrance. All those beautiful heads of flower in close contact with each other - such a delight.
