Pumpkin Jack Welcomes You!

Pumpkin Jack is all about carving pumpkins. I have patterns, instructions, anecdotes, carving galleries and even Halloween stories. Come in and stay a while. Please return often.

The majority of the patterns on this site are quiet complex and require hours of time to complete. If you find them to be intimidating or, perhaps, you would like a little practice first before tackling them, you might wish to attempt some more traditional patterns here, some Halloween images here or my extensive collection of smiley face patterns here.

Number of patterns so far: 1414

Pattern of the Month - August

August! Sometimes referred to at "the dog days of summer," it is during this month that some think that the oppressive heat of summer will never end. For fans of autumn and Halloween, that time seems like it will never come. Be patient, my friends, we're almost there!

This month we will focus on a couple of Canada's cold warriors. The Cold War was a time of high tension when it was feared that a fragile peace would be broken and an atomic war would ensue. It was in the early years of this tumultuous period of our history that the tension was the highest because there were people with power who saw atomic weapons as simply another arrow in the quiver of war and there was a very real possibility that Armageddon could happen!

During this time (1950s and early 1960s) Canada was led by two men: Louis StLaurent and John Diefenbaker. These were the two behind the infamous Avro Arrow jet fighter. If you have never heard of it, Google it!

Louis StLaurant - 12th Prime Minister

John Diefenbaker - 13th Prime Minister
