November's Angel

Here she is, here she is!  This one was fun to stitch, and I wanted a definite Thanksgiving feel.  The pins in this one are a blackbird (see, he's perched on the top) and a sunflower in her hand.  Growing up in North Dakota, I saw sunflowers every year.

My dad had a standard joke for late in the summer.  We'd all be in the car, driving outside of town past a sunflower field.  When the sunflowers get ready for harvest, their heads droop -- like they're looking at the ground.  My dad would say: "Nobody move.  I dropped my contact lens!"
