I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
I made a couple of permanent marker pumpkins for friends this week. I looked back at old patterns to do these two. Why reinvent the wheel? A very simple and satisfying craft. Draw your design on with washable markers, draw the final version with permanent markers, let dry, then lightly wipe the washable lines off with a damp paper towel. Other pumpkins are here,here,here, and here,here,here,here,here, and here.
