Leaf Frame

You can use this leaf frame for any project.  I used it to eventually frame a pumpkin patch for my Nightmare Before Christmas Afghan.


Final frame is roughly 17″ x 21″ – but can stretch nicely to a bit larger.

Pumpkin Carving

I’m a few days late on this since we had trick-or-treat yesterday afternoon, but here are the results of our pumpkin carving.  🙂

IMG_1231Esther was the only one that was interested in carving while I photographed.

Her pumpkin with battery powered eyes.


My pumpkin in homage to all the cats outside.


The front stoop:  IMG_1256The first pumpkin in one that Esther carved over a week ago at a party – it is soft and moldy already.  The little pumpkins are the ones we grew in are garden. IMG_1257The last pumpkin with a moon and star is the one Lydia did at the last minute before trick-or-treaters.


I miss the days when we would all carve and the girls would sit by the pumpkins in their costumes so I could get photos…. no photos this year because the ones that went out (Esther and Liz) did so with friends in other neighborhoods.
