Have a BOOOTIFUL day!

(edited to fix, because I have an issue with fast fingers)

Good morning! Happy Halloween if you celebrate that! Blessed Samhain if you celebrate that! Happy Fall if you don't!

We carved our pumpkin last night. It was pretty fun. Our pumpkin was 37 pounds, and needed an awesome carving. I found a book of templates at Walmart last night along with carving tools, so we went that route. I haven't carved a pumpkin in 15 years, HTB hasn't in 30 years. We decided to go with two carvings on it. It really is a lantern! The pittybulls helped us by eating the pieces of pumpkin that fell on the floor. And by wagging their encouragement!

His side. See the orbs on the right?

My side. This black cat fetish I have is getting a bit out of hand.


And my project for the day for my October 31st SAL. If anyone is interested, please participate! It will be fun!

OK, I have to run, I'm off to start work on this WIP.

A two-sided pumpkin! What a great idea, Rachel. And I share your love of black cats :)

Love your Sleepy Hollow piece--haven't seen that one before. Looks like a fun stitch...

LOVE your pumpkin! Great job!

Oh, I can't wait to see how much you get done on Sleepy Hollow :o)

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
