With a little unexpected free time yesterday my son and I decided that it was time to carve our first pumpkin of the season. The carving took a few hours but I can't wait to end up with some pumpkin bread this weekend. Victor helped by helping me scrape out the pulp and then picking out the seeds to roast in the oven. Then I free handed a haunted house scene with some clay carving tools and an X-acto knife.
This Sunday will be our family party for Ella. I still need to find her a dress for this wonderfully cold weather we've been having here in New York.
I'm in love with it. I read somewhere that if you can find room in your refrigerator to keep it cold when not on display to preserve its freshness. I'm going to see if I can shift the milk and juice around. I also don't carve all the way through so that air never enters the pumpkin.
On another note I'm so excited to start seeing the finished Creepy Cloths that are being posting on Ravelry. They all look great!
