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

This all sounds very exciting! I'm exciting to see your woolly sheep photos!


Oh I wish I could attend Yarndale!! Too far to come from Durban, South Africa. Will enjoy reading about it later. Enjoy!!

Little Quiltsong

Sounds so exciting and colorful!! You enjoy! Looking forward to your upcoming posts on all the happenings :)!


It must be a wonderful feeling to see all that yarn bombing and know that you've put it there. It sounds as though Yarndale is going to be amazing as ever. I hope you have an absolutely wonderful time. CJ xx


Take care, breathe and we hear from you how the Yarndale explosion felt. Hugs.


I love your studio and am coveting (is that a bad thing?) it but will aim to making something similar in my space and I will contribute next time if you do a project like the sheep again. Unfortunately discovered too late this year. Hope everything goes amazingly well this year.


I think it all looks great, maybe one year, maybe.
I hope to crochet a bag for my sister for Xmas the colour is a big thing through one that sings to me is not her, I guess I will have to guess and hope that she likes what I pick.

I admire all the hard work you and the other organisers put in to make Yarndale what it is, a truly wonderful experience. This year is my second visit and we are already in Skipton ready and waiting. Hope to pay a visit to Bolton Abbey today but hoping to have time to call in at your studio as well. See you on Saturday. xx


I'm hoping my little lady can be accepted on the day on Sunday as well, Lisa. Like you I never managed to get her in the post on time, but it seems a shame not to let her join the flock and meet other little wooly sheep. :)


Yippee, soon be on my way! I want 3 of your bag kits for my little grand-daughters - one of each colour!!


Wow - such perfect reflections on the first photo! Don't the sheep look adorable on those straw bales! I found mine (in one of the additional photos on Facebook) - I love that it's come full circle, as the bits and pieces to make her came from all three of my previous trips to Yarndale. Really looking forward to this year - I have a wish list as long as my arm!


Oh wow! Everything sounds so exciting, Yarndale, your beautiful town, your coffee place and of course you. And having this chance to see you and visit the studio from where you deliver your yarny wonders to the world. This is now definitely on my bucket list and who knows when I'll be able to come (all the way from Switzerland, yes Madam) as it does not only depend on me but it won't take very long. Meanwhile I just enjoy your lovely posts and feel the excitment with you. Enjoy and breath, my dear Lucy!


Oh my gosh, it all looks so wonderful! The town people must be so proud of the lampposts and full of wonder, I should think. Such a lot of work - well done Lucy and everyone concerned, I'm so in awe of your amazing capabilities. So wish I was coming to Yarndale, but my illness prevents it sadly, but I'm crossing all my fingers for next year. Good luck with everything, time to breathe and enjoy now. Linda xxx

I'm so glad you are taking time to breathe during all this excitement! Everything looks wonderful so far and I can imagine how great it will be with all the visitors coming to see you and the show. Have fun.. and remember to breathe. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Oohhh....I'd so love to be there.....but not this year.....France isn't too far away but manchild has had any extra pennies going this year to go to England to realise his musical dreams.....maybe next year...... x x x


I hope one day to plan a trip to the UK and do it when Yarndale is on. It sounds glorious! Make sure you pace yourself and keep up the vitamins or whatever so you don't get burnt out. It always takes alot out of you :) The bags and yarnbombings look fabulous xox

Lyn lewis

Hope there will be some sheep left to buy on Sunday :)
So looking forwards to seeing the whole event.
When we yarn bombed in Hull, several items were half inched overnight which was a shame, hope yours survive the weekend! At least!


All looks amazing Lucy have a lovely time all best wishes from Cornwall love Jenny xx

Winwick Mum

Squeeee! One more sleep! See you tomorrow! xx

Lisa Lancaster

I'm coming with my little yarny group called The Wool Gatherers on Sunday and just can't wait.
I made a sheep and didn't get it posted in time. If I bring her on Sunday I may just sneak her onto the display. Is that too naughty?
I met you two years ago Lucy so I do hope there's time for a quick chat on Sunday. Save me a blue bag kit!!! Lol xx


Gutted I can't make Yarndale this year - bask in the amazing success that it is and hopefully I'll make it again in 2017. Well done! (PS mega excited that I managed to pick out my sheep - on the front row, no less!)
