Pattern of the Month for November

November 03, 2016 18 Comments

November is here and NOW is the time for all of us to be grateful! 
Wait. That just .. doesn't seem right, does it? 

I've always found it interesting how November became the month of gratitude and thankfulness for everyone. How we sometimes can go our entire year without uttering a single word of thanks until that magical month creeps up on our calendar.

Shouldn't we be thankful year round? Shouldn't we sit around our dinner table, no matter what is staring us in the face (whether it be a Thanksgiving dinner or a frozen pizza) and just ... give thanks? Why do we have to wait for one special day, one big special meal to look at everything we have (or don't have) and give just a tiny bit of thankfulness?

Well, have no fear because this month's #stitchventure pattern is inspired by the idea of being grateful ... at all times.

When designing this pattern, I wanted to make sure that, once completed, it could be displayed at any time of the year. So for the foliage wreath, I chose a color palette that screamed neutrality, yet had a nice, peaceful tone and made sure to choose my words carefully for the center.

I chose "At All Times Grateful" because I want to emphasis the importance of being grateful, being thankful AT ALL TIMES (even when it is hard to be). My hope is that you complete this pattern for yourself (or for someone else) and display it year round as a reminder that we are so very blessed, every day, not just one month out of the year (or one special day around a dinner table). 

Check out the details for the pattern here and make sure to leave a comment below letting me know what you are grateful for year round, for a chance to win this month's hand embroidery pattern!
