Is in the eye of the beholder.
This little pumpkin was made by a young woman at the Ohio Craft Museum on Saturday. She wasn’t happy with the shape or the lines that formed, so I asked if she wanted to make a new one. She was much happier with the second one, and although I suggested she take both, she left this little guy behind. I thought the line made a great mouth and gave him two little eyes. He inspired some of the kids to put features on theirs. I brought him home and gave him to Bob. I think he has a lot of character.
I had a great time teaching at the event. One little boy whispered to his mom, “I can’t believe I made this!” I haven’t led a workshop in a long time, and I’d forgotten how rewarding it is.
