Not Quite as Cute as I Originally Thought Crochet Project...

But, I'll share them anyway! I worked on the crocheting part during the rest of the day on Sunday. Then yesterday, I fiddled and futzed with the faces. Amy thought I needed to add a little something to the pumpkin, so I added the "eyes" and then futzed with creating a leaf and stem. I didn't like the leaf the pattern gave me, so I tried a different one. Darn it, though, you can't really see the detail in the photo (tried brightening it in PSE, but it locked up on me for some reason). Oh well. I'm very done with this project so on to the sharing:
 Sorta spooky, but mostly dorky ghost. I tried to add googly eyes, but that looked worse, so I took them off.

Really dark photo of the pumpkin...maybe that's a good thing! But the leaf did turn out kind of neat, if a bit large.

The witch is my favorite of the three. The googly eyes work on her. And the hair was way easier to attach than the hair on Lily Witch. Maybe if I'd looked at the hat pattern before, I could have adapted it for Lily. I like how the brim is flatter on this one. Ah well...
Our kind of goofy looking trio.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I sure appreciate the visit.
I'm working on yet another project...dang, why do I show my kids the cute stuff that comes through my inbox...they love what they see and beg me to make it. LOL Depending on how things go tonight, I might be able to share tomorrow...stay tuned!

This trio is really something to hoot about! (oops!) I do love them, Jeanne. If I lived near you, I'd be jumping up and down begging, too!

hugs!

HA! those are cute. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate the interest and your sweet words. I do no currently offer my patterns for sale, (only finished product). I keep considering it but I'm not to that point yet. The owl pattern belongs to a gal named Monica, she shared it on a tatting site and I got permission from her to modify it for my purposes and sell it. There are other pumpkin patterns that can be found on the internet for free doing a google search. Good luck. Hope you pick up tatting again. :)

You always do such beautiful work, Jeanne. Your crocheted creatures are always so sweet. I think that darling pumpkin would have to be my favorite, though I'm sure your girls are going batty over them all. ;P

big hugs,
