But first –
I appreciate your comments on my bear in progress from the last post. Taking your analysis into consideration, I will most definitely finish him. I’ll be sure to post his photo here once I’ve done so.
In the meantime, I’ve embarked on something rather scary. Isn’t Halloween supposed to be slightly spooky, slightly scary? Well nothing will scare the socks off of me like posting a questionable teddy bear project underway with no clue as to how it might turn out and a deadline. (Ooooh – a ‘dead’ line???)
Of course, if I thought it was a bad idea, I wouldn’t even start it, so at the beginning there is some hope of success . . . but also the chance of a massive, colossal failure. Alas, it wouldn’t be truthful to say I am not acquainted with failure. Oh, I am. Failure and I – well, let’s just say we’ve met quite a few times. In fact, sometimes I think he rents out a room here, sneaks into the kitchen at night and pilfers some crackers which he eats under the covers.
This is not a real pumpkin. It’s one of those unreal ones. I was riding in the car the other day and got a crazy notion of something I could make with one.
I had to learn how to cut them. That part was easy – much easier than I had thought it would be.
Part of the idea is that this pumpkin needed to become
a jack o’ lantern.
We always test the effectiveness of our efforts in the small
bathroom that gets no light.
This part seems to work.
Now if I can only follow through with the rest of my idea. Sometimes that is the hardest thing – to keep moving forward. A huge Thanks to the person who sent me this quote.
