Pumpkin Thank You
This week's Retro Sketch proved quite the challenge and I would have given up if it weren't for these cute pumpkins. They are so easy to make and you can vary how "fat" or "thin" you want them to be. I had to go with the skinny version so they would all fit on the panel. Unfortunately, in my frustrated state, I forgot to sponge the edges a bit so they are a bit "flat", but I still love them :)
Soon enough the kids and I will be heading out to a local farmer's you-pick pumpkin patch. Now that the kids are older, trips to the big pumpkin patch with the hay ride etc. isn't high on their list. They grow up sooo quickly.... Though I must admit, going on class field trips to the pumpkin patch when it's pouring rain out is not something I miss a whole lot! Digging pumpkins out of the mud for the four or five kids in your car pool was not my idea of a good time. Thankfully, that aspect of the trip was always overshadowed by the big smiles and excitement on the faces of the kids as they thanked you for helping them find their perfect pumpkin :) Oh, and I almost forgot, my daughter would always want to get a small pumpkin for our cat so he wouldn't feel left out. Good memories...rain and all :)
Thanks for visiting and hope your pumpkin picking day is a dry one!
