Give Thanks

Another new wall hanging ready for Thanksgiving display.  I used Cheri Payne's "Give Thanks" pattern.  It was shown colored with crayons and without a border.  I enlarged the design 150% and did needle turn applique.  Then added a border to it.  I was not sure what color to make the Pilgrim couple's clothing.  I have seen black, brown, and grey Pilgrim outfits.  I went with a black/brown fabric I had in stash.  I mainly used cotton fabrics but did some touches of wool on the very small pieces.  Cute Raggedy Ann and Andy Pilgrim couple.

The design is found in the files on Cheri's Facebook group page.

Have a great Saturday!
