Get ready for the fall season with this list of twelve crochet pumpkin patterns to make!

“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”

Henry David Thoreau

Introverts Unite! At home alone with our pumpkins!

As I was looking for a quote for this blog post, this quote by Henry David Thoreau really stood out to me. I tend to fall for the deeper more meaningful quotes rather than the “pumpkin spice and everything nice” types of quotes. This one struck a chord for me because I’m truly an introvert at heart. Being at home with my family and my craft is my favorite place to be!

And if one is to be sitting all alone on a pumpkin, why not make ALL THE PUMPKINS SHE CAN HANDLE?! Better yet…a velvet pumpkin! Well with the PUMPKIN PALOOZA BLOG HOP by Pineapple and Pine, we have got. you. covered! We’ve got textured pumpkins, mini pumpkins, fur pumpkins, and yes…even VELVET pumpkins!
