Yarndale was incredible - thank you so much. I had the best time ever. I agree that the lamp is wonderful and I would happily give it a home in my house given the opportunity!! x

Deanna McArthur

Oh wow! That is absolutely amazing! Haven't seen anything like that before and it is beautiful! I will have to save this and try it someday for my daughter!

Bonnie T

WOW! Immediate thought - that would make a GREAT skirt! Second thought - I want one for my lounge room! Is it almost OTT enough for me :) I just love that you were inspired by Dell, she is my crochet hero and part of my online crochet group (Facebook version of knit and natter). Well done Lucy! It's fantastic!

Dear Lucy, this is one of the loveliest crochet projects I've ever seen and I must say: Your lampshade is sooo much more pretty than the inspiration lampshade because of its colours, its pattern and the sweet dingle-dangle balls that are as cute as a button.(Sorry, Kate Jenkins)I think I'm going to copy that idea.(Sorry, Lucy)

Mrs Dawn Cooke

Loved your yarnbombing creations. Am hoping to do some kind of yarnbombing project in the future.This site has given me much encouragement.

I am in awe. You are the best! I really like the photo taken by little B. Thank you for reminding me how sweet the little ones can be. I love your color palette. I wish I could find similar ones here in the States. any suggestions?


A great piece of art....you are immensely talented...all those beautiful colors alongwith those little balls make it perfect....Loved it!!!

Hi Lucy,
I love your work, you are amazing, how you put the colors together and just everything you do. Thank you so much for sharing all the pictures.


Janice Franssen

I think after you have used it at Yarndale you should put it in your studio, it would look great there.


Julie Evans

Just wanted to wish you good luck for the weekend - I am so looking forward to Yarndale - feel like a kid at Christmas! I'm sure it will be a brilliant success there's so much good will coming your way for all the hard work you've put in xx

Debbie Hall

Hello -

My name is Debbie and I'm from Buffalo, NY in the US. I am always looking for fun and creative things to do with crochet and was inspired when I came to your site. I would like very much to follow your blog for more creative ideas. Thank you!


Oh, I forgot to mention that we have now our own little "ConnyVan". You can find some pics on my blog... But it will take ages until it looks that neatly decorated with crocheted pillows and throws!!


Is it really too much for a living room?? I think on dark winter evenings such a lamp could bring light into my heart :-)) I am pleased, that you plan to use this lamp in your studio after yarndale!!


It looks SO good!
If we could all yarn bomb everything, that would be my ideal world.


I LOVE it...I actually laughed out loud with delight when I saw that you had covered the whole base, too. It is so much fun! Beth

I am flabbergasted. What an amazing, gorgeous, delightful creation in all its eccentricity. I love quirky things that make me smile and warm my heart with their playfulness. What a joy to behold dear Lucy. I so wish I could be there for Yarndale but alas I have to wait till next May to visit UK. Now I'm off to visit the blog of the chair bomber, another delight. Blessings, Trills.


Lucy, I love the lamp. I also love the picture that little B took. You should show your teeth more when you smile.


Your lamp looks fantastic Lucy and totally looks in place within your home :-) I looooove that chair too and would rather like one myself. Wonder if you could quilt one in funky patchwork?......

Tanya Miller

Amazing work as always. Wish I could make it to Yarndale to see it in person but can't this year. I will tell my friend to look out for it.
