What a challenge!



Let me tell you about this lovely hooked pumpkin! My friend, Delores does a wonderful job of hooking but she had some trouble putting the hooked sections together, so I lovingly said... " I'll see if I can do it..." WHAT WAS I THINKING????? This booger has crippled my fingers, challenged my mind and made sure that I will probably go to the 'bad place' for cussing so much...I'm not sure who came up with the instructions to put the finished hooked pieces together, but I'd be glad to revise them 'cause the original ones DON'T WORK! I sure hope my friend likes the end result...doesn't matter. I don't think she'll hook another one and I sure ain't puttin' another one together...LOL Love you Delores! : )

LOVE THE PUMPKIN!!!! I'm not a hooker myself, so I am even more impressed when I see hooked things that I fall in love with. :-) Really pretty. Love FALL!!!

My friend did the hooking...I just put it all together for her...I can't seem to find the patience for hooking and I'm losing patience putting stuff together...LOL

First, I want to say Thanks so much To Mrs Barbie for putting this pattern together for me. Without you I would have never gotten this pattern put together. You are definitely a dearly loved friend.
Next I want to say for all who have bought this pattern and put it together without any problems I applaud you. If I was to rate this pattern to put togehter on a scale of 1-10, ten being the most difficult I would give it a 10.
It is definitely not for someone that has hand problems in any way.
