I’ve been super busy over the weekend – on Saturday I spent the afternoon batch cooking for my family as well as preparing 10 days worth of food for my sister and brother-in-law who (if you follow my blog, will know) have just had a new baby girl. I thought it would be nice for them not to have to worry about cooking for a little while, whilst they learn all about parenthood. I remember how hard that was when I had my son, and now I can give the benefit of my parental wisdom (wow, that makes me feel old!) and help out where I can!
In addition, I haven’t forgotten about Crafty October, and am working on a craft for today (that may or may not get posted later on), as well as the remaining days of October – I think I’m actually going to end up with more craft ideas than days!
For day 20, I present to you my (finally!) finished Amigurumi Crochet Pumpkins!
The reason I say finally, is because I bought these patters last Halloween, and only made one of them in time (the large round pumpkin). I then sat and crocheted the smaller pumpkin and they then got put away for another year! And since I wanted to have a complete set, I dug out my wool, crochet hook and pattern and got to work!
I bought the pattern from The Itsy Bitsy Spider’s Etsy Shop, and she has some awfully cute patterns for sale.
Over on her blog, there are free patterns as well; a new one up is for cute little candy corn characters which I am totally going to make before Halloween is here! Why not pay a visit?
As always, you can post your creations over at my current link partyor on my Facebook Page. I also have a Pinterest board that you can pin to – just contact me: michelle [at] the purple pumpkin blog [dot] co [dot] uk for me to add you to it!
