We set our scarecrows up in our yards, surrounded by hay and pumpkins, we enjoy turkey and pumpkin pie, and consider how grateful we are for the time God has given us with family and friends.

    I love this pumpkin. All that I have found have been worked in the round. This one is oblong.
    It looks so much more like a pumpkin. Thanks you for sharing it.

    You come up with the best & cutest ideas I just love the pumpkin. I wish you could see our local city pumpkin patch it’s so beautiful with all the pumpkins in the fields. One year I stop & pulled over to take a picture of it & I was so happy that it came out so nice. That’s what your little pumpkin reminds me of, thanks for sharing you ideas with us.

    I like how the ridges in the crochet pumpkin run the same direction as ridges in a real pumpkin. Cute!
