Welcome to the Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge! For the next 4 weeks you’re invited to a virtual “stitch and sip”. Everyone’s so busy it can be hard to find time to work on your projects, especially with the holidays approaching, so I’ve found it best to set aside time each week. Wednesdays fit my schedule best, but you can choose any evening that suits your schedule.
One of my favorite times of year is autumn. It makes me think of family, friends, falling leaves and best of all, food! I look forward to a house full of people and cooking that mouth-watering bird. RedHeart.com has several patterns to you get ready for this fabulous season. Any one of these patterns will make a great gift or help decorate for your own celebration. I hope you enjoy the patterns that I found for you, but most of all enjoy your Thanksgiving Holiday. Gobble gobble!
