Well it’s taken me a year (as I wanted to carve one last year) but for the first time ever, I’ve carved a pumpkin! Kristen was on hand to give out advice and laughs about how slow I was going – she’d practically finished her cat before I had finished. Pictures, in order are online at the Coppermine Pumpkin Gallery. Thanks to Byroads magazine for the skull pattern. I was going to do the cat but this looked far too complicated.
