My tribute to Thanksgiving



"Unwavering Cranberries", "Tired Turkey", and "Sentimental Mashed Potatoes" characters all from Mollie Johanson/Wild Olive's "Harvesters" embroidery pattern.  Stitched in two strands, backstitch and stem stitch and lightly tinted with colored pencils.

I added the words from Adam Sandler's "Thanksgiving Song."  Four strand backstitch.

Oh and a tip: Don't watch "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" while stitching, my tears kept blurring my vision and I poked myself with my needle a few times.  Sad movies and embroidery do not mix.  Smiley

Thanks for looking and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Awesome!!  I always start singing that song this time of year.  Well, actually, since I'm a vegetarian I always sing "Tofurkey for you, tofurkey for me...I wish tofurkey only cost a nickel!"

So cute!
Does the pencil come out if you wash it? say if this was on a tea-towel or a tablecloth and needed laundering?

Don't know if a loaf of tofurkey would look quite as cute embroidered, but it works in the song.  Wink

I didn't do anything on this piece to fix the colored pencil on, but from what I understand you can brush over it with some textile medium on linens and it will survive washes.  There is a tutorial at http://www.gigglefacestudios.com/giggleface_studios/2008/07/colored-pencil-tinted-linen-tutorial.html about that.  There are also more tinting ideas in the Needlework Discussion and Questions section here on Craftster.

Good question on the pencil tinting. I think crayon tinting is washproof, but it might not look as subtle as the pencil effect. I want to go get my crayons out now and doodle!

Fabulous work!  I love how the food items look so unhappy about being eaten...
