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

Thanks in favor of sharing such a pleasant thought, paragraph is fastidious, thats why i have read it completely


I so wished I could have come but your too far away plus I have agoraphobia. Im so jealous of all the people that got to meet you!! as for autographs I would have been utterly beside myself if id got one as its totally thanks to you that I can crochet !!
You should be so proud of yourself for all the hard work that went into it. I bet your house looked so bare with all your lovely crochet not there...
Congratulations Lucy on a job well done..

Lovely colors, beautiful little corner you had. I say, the blanket covering the chair, is that a series of tunisian blocks?


I think that what you did is amazing. Just amazing.

Hello Lucy,
I've been reading your blog right from the start and I just want to say how proud I am of everything that you have achieved. Yarndale represented the very best of the blogging community - thank you for the hard work that you have done over the years - creating, writing, sharing so generously. Yarndale was the huge achievement of the whole event team but it was built on a foundation of Attic 24 and your extraordinary gift for communicating the warmth of your personality. Many, many congratulations.

The warmth and spirit of generosity that shines out through your blog continued to shine in your "real life" presence at yarndale. Thank you for sharing. I love your idea of making your tweety birds with legs and bells for Christmas! I have the WANTIES for your Christmas wreath and I think jewel coloured birds would look fab nestled between the holly/pom poms! I'd also like to pop feathers on them to make long tails like the gorgeous feathery bird decoration I got from Liberty last year. Yum! Xx


I had a wonderful day at Yarndale, my thanks to you all for organising it.

Mahooosive mahoooooosive pats on the back lovely lady. What an undertaking! Seriously special and your passion and creativity just shines through... I think you ought to be so very proud of yourself! ♥♥♥


Thanks for sharing your experience of Yarndale, and for sharing yourself so generously AT Yarndale. Your corner was fanTAStic and I'm sure many people, like me, were rather overwhelmed by the opportunity to see and touch (gently!) your beautiful creations in real life. Your chicken brooch pattern is lovely - made it for a friend's birthday just the other day... and now I may have to make one for myself too!

We had a great time at Yarndale. I came with my sister in law and 8 year old daughter, and although my daughter was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of people there we had had a fantastic day. It took a lot of willpower not to spend a fortune on yarn. Where did you get that beautiful dress you were wearing on the Saturday. It looked lovely and I didn't want to come and ask as you seemed overwhelmed by all the attention


Going thru your post again and I think I see my one of my bunting...it has an owl in the middle of it! Fancy that, out of the thousands of bunting I actually think I've seen one of mine, or else someone else did the owl thing too. Too funny to see that! Hugs, MO


Lucy it was a pleasure to meet you, you were as natural and friendly as you are here in Attic24. I had such an amazing weekend (my blog post was done in 3 parts and I was only a visitor, I'm sure your memories could fill a book).
Thank you to you and the team, it was wonderful, it really was. I do hope we can do it all over again in 2014.

This is spectacular! How garland! What more beautiful garlands! and all the decor! I would have been happy if I were come to this festival! congratulations on a job well done!

Oh Lucy, it's no surprise that you were in hot demand! You are such an inspiration to so many people all over the world. If I lived in the UK I would have come to meet you too. Thank you so much for sharing your talent, and life, with us all. Katherine x


Wow! What a truly fabulous event. You must be so very proud of it. I just wish I didn't live on the other side of the world - I would have loved to have visited!!

The bunting pics in your previous post were fantastic. What an amazing story of international support. I loved it.

Have a fab weekend hon. I'm feeling all inspired now having caught up on your posts. So I'm off to make a cup of tea and grab my hook.



Great to read about yarndale. That is a lovely photo of you . That smile is so content. I love it.


Lucy, Great. Brilliant. If you knew then what you know now, would you have undertaken all that with only a team of seven? You have all worked wonders.


Hello Lucy, Thanks for all your glorious reports on the Yarndale show... I live in the USA and reading all the reports made me almost feel like i was there... I reckon ALL the people involved in creating this fantastic event deserves heaps of Gratitude sent their way...It was a super great show and you can easily tell everyone was having a grand time... Thanks for your reports. Hugs Judy


My Mum got taken into hospital the day before Yarndale started so I couldn't be there.
PLEEAASSEEE do it again next year!!

Querida LUcy no podre agradecero suficientemente lo feliz que he sido durante la celebración de Yarndale 2013.
El reportaje fotografico como siempre precioso.
Me ha traido una sonrisa a mi cara.
Mis mejore deseos

Lola Sanchez, Cordoba, España


can't wait for next year's :-)

btw - where did you all get your aprons from, they're fab :-)


WOW OH WOW!! So wish I could have been there. Yarndale looks to me like it was a rousing success, thank you for sharing your pics with all of us!

Winwick Mum

It might have been tiring but it was well worth the effort - you and the rest of the team have made a lot of people all around the world very happy; those of us who could get there because we could experience it for ourselves, and those who couldn't because of still being able to share the experience through your blog and others. I think the happiness it has brought is probably considerably more valuable than the financial gains of Yarndale - but hopefully they were enough to make it worth your while to do it again! xx

Jen Keast

Dear Lucy
I have been waiting for this latest post and just love it. The emotional connection we all feel is amazing - I've tried to explain it to non-crafty friends and they just don't get it - so sad. Really hoping it runs again next year - saving for the air fare as we speak xx
