This is a season to enjoy the weather, visit a pumpkin patch, cook up a storm, and, most importantly, to count our blessings. I feel very blessed in my life, and I would like to share this with you, my family and friends, by wishing you a special Thanksgiving Day with your families.
This month I have embroidered more pumpkin images that I can count: on dresses, aprons, bibs, and even on bloomers. On pillows, table runners, and wall hangings, too. The embroidery itself has been simple and in several different styles, from cross-stitch to shadow work. I’ve used DMC floss or French floss, and the result is always the same: a nostalgic, vintage pumpkin that makes my heart think of Thanksgiving Day.
I’m sharing some photos of my best pumpkins with you, in hopes of evoking some of the same warm feelings that I have about this special season. God bless.
