Suw and I actually made our Jack O’ Lanterns a few days before Halloween this year. Suw made her own excellent pattern, while I used a pattern from Zombie Pumpkins.com. It’s a great site with lots of patterns. It took me a while to do the intricate carving, but it was well worth it. We bought one of those pumpkin carving kits, and they little saws really work. Happy Halloween.
