Love your pumkins Stacey, a friend who left today brought one with a bat carving in it and the other was the grim reaper with an owl sat on the branch of a tree.  

She's got the book on order for the templates.

Zoomer44 I am using a us website this year saves a bit of time but the skill is in the cutting ....... Watch this space ......

Very good. My son (4) wanted our pumpkin to have a happy face, so ours has a big smile and is not at all spooky.

Blairs my toddler won't like the scary ones so there are two cartoon ones for her ..... Pumpkins can be anything you want that's why they are great.... Post pics ..... And don't forget their innards are yummy!!!

This may sound like a daft question but what kind of knife do you use for carving? Or do you use various ones depending on the pattern?

 I still need to make the smile a bit more firendly. We have already tried to make pumpkin muffins (ok but needs cinnamon to give it taste) and will try pumpkin bread tomorrow.

Cool blairs.... I like him although is he too welcoming to hoards of kids looking for a sugar rush lmao.... Fairy my tools are as follows ..... A spoon to scoop a sharp carving knife to cut the top off a scapel for curved lines and a small serrated knife to cut.... My mum brought me a proper pumpkin tool kit from the us a few years ago I just don't get on with it.....

Just looked at all the great pumpkins & have also been looking at snow pictures. I think the pumpkins would look brilliant sitting out in snow.

What I mean is save some for winter, don't want snow this week

Stacey Docherty

Right carving the last one but here's one for the kiddies I did
