Lucy, you do sound (in your wonderful writing style) definitely recovered from that brilliant Yarndale weekend. Belated bravos to you for your amazing contributions to that event. How I wish I could have visited "for real" but seeing the reports by many bloggers was also fun.



I alwauslove to read your blog, i do not postcomments often, because english is not my language
I love crocheting and we are saving money for our own caravan, we will name her : crommivan, because our familyname is Crombé
Greetings from belgium !

So glad to see that you finally got to relax! Looks like all of your hard work paid off.....reading about Yarndale all over the web! Sure wish I wasn't an ocean away....would have been wonderful to attend....

Jools Morgan-Jones

Glad you're back to your usual fab self, Lucy - you've had a LOT going on with the Yarndale stuff and running a home full of lovely little people too, so it was bound to take it out of you. It's good to know you're feeling better now xx


You've inspired me to get into the garden and cut myself some dahlias - thank you. That orange is glorious - I love the colour of this blog, it's why I read.


Aww, so happy to see You Are Back!! Your post just made me enjoy my day a whole lot more :-) xxxx


So happy that you are back, Lucy! I love your pretty dahlias and I like orange, such a cheery colour. Can't wait to read about your Yarndale experience. I couldn't make it but loved to read all the blog posts from participants who posted their website on the Yarndale facebook site. A bit like being there myself.


I'm happy if you once again energized, Lucy!
I always sleep with cotton sheets and are wonderful! do you have more wrinkles and be ironing board but they are a treat for the skin and senses! Really! dahlias are lovely, all flowers are beautiful! but orange is spectacular! Thanks to convey the happiness, peace and above all energy, including: thanks for inspiration!

Lovely photos. Love the flowers, it's such a trek to get flowers from our market as it is 6 miles away and if I go in car, I have to carry them the long way to where I always park. If I go on train or bus they get crushed. I tend to buy flowers in Aldi, where they are cheap but not so lovely as yours.

Love the Cath Kidston mug, do you put two Nespresso shots in or just 'water it down with milk" if you know what I mean?

Barbara Seiver

I must confess that I couldn't pick out a Dahlia from a mixed bouquet. When you showed them to us, I thought, "No, that's a chrysanthemum!"
Wikipedia tells me the two flowers are cousins. In fact, I suspect after reading about the Dahlia that it was offered as the "football chrysanthemum" to pin on our jackets for the homecoming game in college. Now I know - thanks!


Welcome back!!Love your flowers, your cup....I am glad you are here :)

Glad to see you are feeling better!

I'm really not surprised you have been so exhausted - you were on your feet all weekend you know (and chatting to everyone!) Glad to hear that you have bounced back now though and I bet it feels good to be doing hooky for yourself! I have to say I am giggling and ridiculously happy seeing your photos thinking "I've been there!" and "I had coffee in there!" xxx

Fiona Marchant

Glad you are back...glad you have regained your inner calm.
Apart from the "buzzy brain". I have one of those too. Setting up my own little shop on Etsy, wondering whether to have a go at running an adult sewing class before Christmas. Lots of crafty ideas swimming around too...shame I have to work. Anyhoo, have started on two of my Yarndale goodies..and enjoying doing them. Take care...


It's good to have you back Lucy!!!!

Natas Nest

Nice to hear you're feeling balanced again :-). Great pics, love the bright orange dahlia!

Hello Lucy! Glad to hear you're bouncing back to normal. We've missed "normal Lucy post." Love, love, l-o-v-e the dahlias! Here you're more out to find mums(chrysanthemums)this time of year, in fact I bought a lovely potted candy corn version(orange, yellow and white) one yesterday. Have a great "normal" day! :)


I loved this post, especially the naughty Dahlia.

White cotton? no comparison. Fresh and crisp! you cheered me up with your lovely post today.


My grandad grew dahlias - they always remind me of him :)

Ada Bea

Hello back! Glad you are feeling more you after what must have been an exhausting few weeks, even though I also know it will have been full of highs! I'm a fan of pure cotton white bedding too, we've not had anything else on the duvet since 1990!!! But of course I do love those vintage sheet pillowcases as well....soon I'll have my very own crochet pillows on there too! Have a lovely week sweetheart! :) x

Winwick Mum

Nice to have you back! I love dahlias too and used to grow all kinds of varieties until I got too worn out fighting a losing battle against the slugs and snails. I'll try again another year, but I still grow those lovely pot marigolds - none of your cultivated varieties, thank you, they have to be the proper ones!

PS The man at the Herdy stand at Yarndale told me that orange is a very creative colour (as he sold me an orange mug!) so perhaps you picked the colour to fit with your mood! xx

Gail simpson

just read and loved every word x You cheered me up no end Gayle xx


Glad to hear you're feeling more like yourself again, it can be hard to wind down after a huge event like Yarndale. I'm loving your new mug, I have a thing for mugs even though I rarely use them, I don't drink many hot drinks. Markets are a great place to buy flowers, especially things which are a little more unusual. I have some dahlias in the garden, such zingy colours they come in.


Glad to hear that you are feeling better!
Lovely flowers!


Lovely, Lucy. A lovely attic24 post. I was excited to see that it is a back-to-normal post, with flowers, cup, and little hooky projects :) Your dahlias and hooky flowers look gorgeous!
