Yes, it is almost go time. I can almost smell the burning pumpkin flesh! Tonight is the first night of the Chadds Ford Great Pumpkin Carve and I will be working on #21. Still haven't finalized my design, it's between Death on a pale horse and a raven for Edgar Allen Poe. I really want to do the raven but I think someone did something like that last year.

My since 2004 my designs have won Best Overall twice, Best Halloween once and Best Carving once. I go in to the challenge with no expectations of winning, just the thrill of the carve!
My pumpkins have also been featured on Martha Stewart's website and The This Old House website. Here is one of my favorites!
