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: 1425

Pattern of the Month - September

September and summer is over. Okay, yes I know that technically summer ends in late September, but seriously the summer vacation season is over and Halloween is only 2 months away. For many it's also the month of going back to school. Yeah, I said it. I know it's tough, but it's reality.

Buffy and her friends had to suffer a return to school too. What that meant was also a return to slaying and a return to training with her proper Watcher, Giles. But Rupert was anything but proper. Here was a grownup juvenile rebel who regretted his past choices, wanted to be the good guy, but remained the rebel just under the tweed.

In my humble opinion, Anthony Head's Rupert Giles was the most complex and enjoyable character in Buffy and I am very pleased that he is our September Pattern of the Month.
