Before Dad's diagnosis, Mom and I decided to do another stitchalong.
This time it was Buttermilk Basin's Pumpkins in the Sunflowers.
It's fun to see how we start with the same pattern, but have different visions for it.
I used a dark flannel base with more primitive colors.
Mom chose a neutral toweling with a bit lighter colors.
Although we both chose the same pumpkin windowpane and the same checked brown for the center of our sunflowers! :)
This was the first project that we both finished after Dad passed...
Maybe not our best work, but it definitely was a bit of healing when we put needle and thread to wool again...
I love to look at the similarities and the differences.
We both used a button for the crow's eye.
In just a few days it will be time to pack them away.
I think that we will have to pick out a stitchalong for the new year, Mom!
You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance.
