Autumn Has Arrived!

Here is the quilt back I'm working on for the apple quilt.  It's a bit bigger than I need it to be, so the gray and plaid borders will need a bit of adjusting in size.  I started with the Apple Tree and hope to move on to the pirate ship this afternoon.

This year for Halloween I envisioned my family working together for the good of the family pumpkin.  Oddly that didn't happen and my attempts to get the three of us together to work on it fell flat.  Kudos to those of you with older children and bigger families, I don't know how you do it.  So last night I hauled the pumpkin out of where it had been banished and started working on it after Jessica went to bed.  Before to long my husband pitched in which was good.

We don't carve our pumpkins as you can see.  This year I'm hoping to gut it and turn it into pumpkin pie right after Halloween.  My cousin swears it can be done with a normal pumpin so we shall see.  Because of the way we made the Princess Pumpkin's hair we were able to have a two faced pumpkin this year, which hubby really enjoyed creating.
That's all folks hope you have a great fun filled day!

This is such a coincidence, I ordered 2 pumpkins today (about 40 pounds together) but not for Halloween. I will buy a smaller one for that.
The ones I ordered are for gutting for making soup and jam. But maybe before we could habe fun with them and decorate them the way you did with yours. It looks so funny, great job!

I LOVE the pumpkin/s. I once tried to make pumpkin pie using a real pumpkin - disaster. Don't know what went wrong, but it was not nice.

LOL Sophia was terrified of her pumpkin last year. I have so many photos of her screaming at it. We do the best we can ;)

Last year my daughter did pumpkin carving and Christmas pictures the same weekend. Sometime in November. Everybody was available.

I am planning pumpkin carving in a few days. Wondering if I can get brave enough to roast the seeds. Also wondering it the picky eaters here would eat them. LOL
