Pumpkins

Firstly, big thanks to all those that commented after having virtual afternoon tea with Mum.

We don’t ‘do’ Halloween, we don't have any young children, but I did enjoy pumpkin carving.
Pumpkins were £3 for two – after a little research – what did we do without the internet?
There are some great sites with templates, tips, what tools to use – after raiding DaddyHen’s tool box - knew we had a Dremel somewhere.
I set to carving my pumpkins so much easier with a Dremel, ice cream scoop and small knife
Both DaddyHen and SonnyHen think I’ve lost the plot – until SonnyHens GF arrived and want join in – she suggested a skull which was the most difficult of them all.  SonnyHens GF carved the bat - lovely carving; I like the way the light is darker, as less pulp has been romoved.
 

It was our first time pumpkin carving and this is my ta-dah moment
