Crocheted pumpkin pie!

For my non-Facebook folks, and just to record on my blog....I made this adorable crocheted pumpkin pie tonight.  The recipe for it was found here:
I found a more pumpkin pie colored yarn ( more of a burnt orange) at JoAnns today, and also a gray yarn with metallic in it for the pie pan.  The crust is made of beige yarn.  There is a little sachet I made (just like the instructions shows to do) that has cinnamon and cloves inside, so when you squeeze it, it smells good.
I used safety eyes just because I thought they were so cute, and I felt they would look better than if I tried to embroider them on.  It called for 10mm eyes, and they only had a size 12mm, but I think bigger eyes look even cuter!  I just realized I forgot to make the whipped cream for the top!  I will try it.  It might be too complicated for me...but will post when and if I get it done!
I'm all set for Thanksgiving now!  Hehehe.
XOXO_ Julie

Thanks all!!! You know the sachet I put inside is smelling better the more I lets the spices drift out and I just love that. I smell it for sun! LOLOL.
