Corrections for the Fall 2012 issue

Good morning! We hope everyone is enjoying the magazine!  We have two corrections for you: 
The Great Pumpkin - the pumpkin template needs to be enlarged by 200%.  
Hallow's Eve - cutting instructions: from purple print, cut: (2) 8–7/8” x 8–7/8” squares. 
We have notified our web designer and the corrections will be posted as soon as possible.
