I have to admit...I'm just not feelin' it this year. I did have this first carve left over from last year. I had it about a third done last fall when I gave up. This pattern is a lot harder than it looks. I recommend shading first on most of this pattern. Two tubes of super glue later and I am calling this done.

We will see how the rest of the season goes for me.

Oh..I also started a pinterest so that all my carves could be in the same place with descriptions.

Well it looks Great !
and you can't see the fixes.

I Also agree with what Doh Just said.

if a Pattern has 60% to 80% Cut-Outs (and their somewhat Large shapes),
then do the shading first.
It's Very hard to shave when the kin already has lots of Holes in it.

Nice job Doh.

Don't let us down. We need to see a lot of your pumpkins this year. It just won't be the same without them.

How did your daughter's game go in Farmington? Sorry I wasn't able to hook up with you.

Any ideas on how to get your page to show up on pinterest if someone does a search for, say, carved pumpkins? I have had my pumpkins on for a couple years, but they never show up when I search.

First Her game went really good. She held the other team to 0 and assisted on the score for the team she was playing for. 1-0.

I dunno how to manipulate the search. I did add Pumpkin carving to my board title. We'll see if that helps.

I agree, you can't see the fixes. It looks just fine to me! And I definitely shade first when there are large cutout parts. or at least don't push the cutout parts out til after shading is done. I learned that lesson the hard way for sure. I understand about not feelin' it. Hope your mood swings at least a little before Halloween :)

Pinterest.... I have found that if I am searching using the iphone app, it doesn't show you ALLLL the choices, it limits it somehow. If you search from your PC, it gives you a bunch, when you get to the end if you scroll down again, it will fill up with more choices and keep doing so until you have decided you don't want to scroll anymore. I think the search is based on the keywords in your comment for individual pins to come up or your board title for the board search

Here is my board.. Following yours now. Looney, do you have one?

(think I am going to make two pumpkin carving boards... one of my own stuff and one of other cool ones I have come across.... in addition to my Halloween, Halloween Crafts, Vintage Halloween, and Pretty Perfect Pumpkins boards HAH!! Think I have enough Halloween ones?)

Yah, I only have 106 boards LMAO!!! I'm a virtual hoarder, what can I say! I did notice that my own board came up on searching 'pumpkin carving' boards, but did not see Stoney or Doh's boards there. Also, when I searched pins of 'stoneykins', all I got were ones I uploaded where I mentioned Stoneykins in the comment of the pin. *shrug* :?: :?: :?:

After all these years...I have become a master at applying super glue! There are 4 different broke spots on that carve.
