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.

Pattern of the Month - November - Doctor Who - The Eleventh Doctor

Halloween is over for another year but we continue to look to the future while still remembering the past. The subject of all this time referencing is, of course, our theme for 2013: Doctor Who.

This is November, the month of remembrance, and it was 50 years ago that an mad man in a little blue box first appeared to the public eye. While you are enjoying this, never forget that it was also 50 years ago that John F Kennedy was shot (no matter how you may believe it happened, the result was the same) and on the 11th we remember those of us who have died protecting us in conflicts and wars.

And speaking of the 11th, this month's pattern is none other than out-going Doctor Matt Smith. Matt took over the role of our favourite Time Lord in 2010 in a situation that saw the loss of the principle cast, the head writer and producer and all the executives. As the new head writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, put it, "We felt like imposters... like we were making a home movie and calling it Doctor Who." But new team managed to pull it off, quickly establishing in the first episode that this was Doctor Who and that Matt Smith was the Doctor.

Now the era of Matt Smith is coming to a close and soon we will have a new Doctor. Actor Peter Capaldi will step into the TARDIS in the 2013 Christmas special. What changes the anniversary special on the 23rd this month or this Christmas special next month will bring to the venerable series, we will see.
