Pumpkin fever

Jeff posted his pumpkins so I wanted to display mine. I think maybe I have too much time on my hands, though. Designed and carved freehandedly in just five minutes! Okay, I used a pattern, it took about an hour and I only have eight fingers left. Also, a piece of advice: Martha Stewart says to put vaseline on the carved portion to keep it fresh and prevent discoloring. And you better listen to her, she knows what she’s talking about.

    Stacey, Sadly, I used a pattern TOO!!

    Only my effort cost me 3 fingers — and a TOE!

    Great job — they look spooky!

    Thanks, folks. I’m leaving them out on the porch tonight, I imagine the squirrels will have made a mess of them by morning.
