Pumpkins for Cathey

This post is in honour of a very special blogger.....Cathey, who blogs as Pumpkin. For anyone who hasn't been to Cathey's blog, please do check it out. I am not eloquent enough to tell you her story, but suffice to say, she's one hell of a courageous person.

Cathey, you leave me humbled when I read of all that you are going through. I wish you and your family health and happiness.

The wonderful Sharon, aka Daffycat, came up with a plan to honour Cathey and show her the love and support of the stitchy community by posting pics of pumpkins as today is Cathey blogging anniversary. I had intended to stitch a little pumpkin, but you all know how good my intentions are, and that the results don't always match the initial thought. So, if you were thinking that I hadn't stitched the pumpkin, you would be, here's the nest best thing...

...a chart so everyone can stitch a pumpkin for Cathey!

The colours used are as follows.
Dk orange - DMC 921
Orange - DMC 721
Yellow - DMC 727
DK Yellow - DMC 726
Green - DMC 988

These are just my suggestions for thread colours, please feel free to use whatever colours of thread you have in your stash!

So a big thank you goes out to Sharon for organizing this event. 

And to Cathey, please take strength form all the love that is being showered on you today and every day from your fellow stitchers and bloggers.

Until next time...happy stitching.
