This afternoon/evening was our friend’s annual Gourd Gala. I picked up a pumpkin on Friday night, so we were ready to go.
Several years ago, I inherited a pumpkin carving kit from my mom circa 2003 (that’s the copyright we found this evening – the book looks way older.) We didn’t use it last year (for our first carved pumpkin as a couple!) but decided to go fancy this year.
And a photo of carving-in-action:
Finally, our finished product.
It was supposed to be a cat. It’s kind of a cat – and I think it’s nose placement is slightly off (totally my fault. I traced the design on there for my husband to carve.)
Once we put a candle in it, I’ll have to take a picture of it. I’m already thinking of ideas for next year’s pumpkin!
