Wow, that is so cool!


It's brilliant! They are transformed when lit, they really are. It's nice that you and your neighbours get together at Halloween. Our street was quiet as a mouse. x


Very Cool!

Gorgeous design, Lucy! What a good idea to score the design onto the pumpkin! Definitely one for us to try next year. Jenny and Lucy xxx

Robin Summers

Awesome pumpkin! I love the job you did on it. I agree they look so much better when the sun goes down and you see the carving in the dark of night!

Great job!!



Fab u lous sounds like lots of fun

Judith Pearson

That's fantastic !

Melody A

Wow, you are unbelievably artistic, such detail on a big scale and it looks fabulous lighted!!


So talented Lucy. Our Halloween day was a disaster for us. It rained and rained and had water pooling everywhere. So no trick o treaters this year. Glad you had a great one. I had a pumpkin left over that was not carved so if it holds out, I think I'll try to carve out a turkey for Thanksgiving Day. ; )


Wow what an amazing pumkin. In holland we don't have the tradition of Halloween.


that's a great pumpkin, I love Halloween and we did the pumpkins and decorated the whole house, such fun!x


Beautiful job of carving!


Wow! That's a pumpkin and a half!

Carolyn Jackson

Lovely work as usual Lucy, you are so artistic. I have been trying to find the blog of your art work and exhibition in Cornwall but cant seem to find it. The lovely fabric art scenes you did. They were so clever. Carolyn.

I don't celebrate the day since I retired and live alone. Not any little people though so all is well. My grands still love Halloween so the tradition passes on. I sat and hooked which is what I love to do. Your pumpkin looks wonderful as everything you touch does indeed turn to gold and then you leave us the tutorial. Thank you so much and stay healthy.


Wow Lucy, it's FAB! There is clearly no end to your artistic talents. Glad you had such an excellent Hallowe'en. CJ xx


Pretty pumpkin! You turn everything you touch into gold...

Teresa Kasner

Wow! I'm totally impressed with your carving! That's amazing! I love how your neighborhood gets into Halloween.. it's such a fun time. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Valerie Donlon

Lovely carving :) My 17 year old daughter does the honours here now, she loves it. I got in loads of goodies for trick or treaters, but we only had 2. I must have eaten my body weight in left vr chocolate :(


Brilliant! Quite right to keep the carving fun all to yourself!


Another masterpiece :-)


That's a great pumpkin Lucy.

Carla, Halloween wasn't really a UK thing here either ...it's taken off big time since the supermarkets started selling all sorts of like minded goods mostly from china.

As a child I was nearly always staying with my Grandparents on Halloween and always a mystery knock on the front door with no one there when we opened it but a box, It contained Sweets,dot to dot book, comic and two bottles, a Guinness and Brown ale for my Grandparents. Many years later I discovered that my Dad was the mystery door knocking spooky ghost!


Brilliant carving Lucy. I bought a pumpkin and sat it in the window but didn't get around to carving it. We had eighteen little visitors and handed out sweet treats to them. Happy Halloween xx lots of love Joy xx

I Was Swallowed by a Hippo

Very fabulous! I feel guilty every year as I carve a nice, soft pumpkin, remembering my poor dad carving out rock hard turnips. And there were 3 of us.


Lucy, you have outdone yourself once again. FABULOUS carving! Sounds like a wonderful time. Now I feel guilty. Denny and I went to the movies on Halloween night. Fortunately, there was no egg on the front door when we returned.
