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

It is all beautiful !!!

Debbie, Essex

It looks SO amazing! Well done and thank you for telling and showing us all about it. (I've told my hubby that I'd like to go to Yarndale next year - can you imagine me trying to explain it to a non-crafty man? I told him he'd enjoy your local coffee shop, trying to appeal to his stomach!!)

Well done to you and the rest of the Yarndale team!

Edith Manners

As I said in my passed comment I am having a catch-up day I just sat down to read Yarndale 2016

" Well, Done Team" What a show and been seen by so many people.Love the Yarn Bombing.It looks amazing.

Big Thanks for pics you've taken and put up for all to see.

Janette Surtees

Loved Yarndale SO much! the creativity bursting out of every stall, the sharing of tips and ideas, the informal chat with strangers over a cup of tea, the oohing and arrring over delicious yarns. The inspiration to come home and crochet many, many new things - it just went too quick! Lovely to meet you Lucy in person as well. We also spent some time driving around Arncliff and the scenery was exceptional. Here's looking forward to next year.

Robin Summers

Oh what fun! It looks like Yarndale was a huge success. That is awesome. One year I will make across the pond and come join in. You look so happy.. not tired at all.


So much yarny goodness all in one place! Thanks for sharing with us!


I can't wait as next year there will be four of us there from the US!!! Great job as always!

Nancy Swank

Thanks for the lovely pictures and descriptions! It helps those of us who are a bit too far away to visit to feel like we were there, if only a little bit.


Those bollards are my absolute fave. And how wonderful to have so many contributors from far and wide!


Oh my, I wish I could have traveled across the pond to this year's yarn celebration. What a joyous event!!! You and all of the organizers did a beautiful job of turning your local auction barn into a wonderland of yarn. My cute little sheep also did not make the deadline, with other things that took me away from completing her in time for mailing. She now sits in my craft basket waiting for a friend to join her. Maybe the foundation for a cute wreath with flowers and butterflies.....hummm.
Maybe I'll make it to Yarndale another year.


Wonderful! It has been a joy to see and share Yarndale from afar through all the great photos from you, Christine, Facebook, Instagram and other bloggers. Thank you.


Greta pics. Thanks for sharing!


Oh Lucy, this post has put a huge smile on my face! All that yarny gorgeousness is almost too much to deal with first thing in the morning. I am filled with inspiration and am off to find the perfect yarn in my stash. I could be a while....

Winwick Mum

I love seeing all the post-Yarndale photos. It's such a busy weekend that it's really not possible to see everything (even if you're not in the knit n natter lounge all weekend!) so it's lovely to see the festival from other people's perspectives. Here's to next year! xx

Angela-Southern USA

A HUGE congrats to all involved! So lovely to see again (in photos/vlogs) all the yarn bombing and to know even though I'm a world away, a tiny piece of me is there bringing hopefully a bit of joy to those that see it with all the other hookers that sent items too. LOVED all the new additions this year especially the bees (as a beekeeper myself)that was a joy to see. A well deserved rest for you all!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hazel coombes

Thank you to all the Yarndale organisers, what a lot of time and work you all put in, but it brings so much pleasure to many. Thank you so much Lucy for sharing your photos and stories of a wonderful weekend. I look forward to reading your blog each week, you are so generous to share your life with us.

Rose, xx


That was a lovely read Lucy, the yarn bombed bollards are awesome!!! Flora is gorgeous too. X


Thank-you for taking the time to document your Yarndale experience Lucy. Due to family ties I am unlikely to get to see it for myself and I just love seeing all the beautiful creations from the crafty ones around the world. Your descriptions and pictures allow me to get a real feel for what it would be like in person. Thank-you so much.

Carol DeLater

OMGosh!! This is such a wonderful post!! I bet you could just feel the energy there. I have never seen anything like this collection .. ever. I would have bought one of those little sheep for sure.
