Here’s an e-mail I got from my friend Marilyn a few days ago. Yes, I’m sharing.
No one was more astonished than I when I actually created this pumpkin yesterday. I found the pattern on the internet and knew I had to at least try doing this.
This is completely different than cutting through (which I’ve done since the early 90’s)… This requires wood carving tools and one just carves out half the skin & flesh of the pumpkin and leaves a thin layer intact.
Strangely enough, I had the required tools.
. . . and here’s the finished product.
Honestly, I have never seen a pumpkin like this in my life.
Here’s a suggestion, Marilyn. Next Halloween, market and sell your pumpkins. You’ll make a fortune.
Everybody, have a great and safe Halloween. We’ll be back on Sunday.
