Good morning, all! Well, I don’t know about your location, but here in the northwest continental US, it is a cold, drizzly first Saturday of November ~ very characteristic for this time of year. It’s the time of year when we hunker down with warm fuzzy blankets, soft sofas, cozy socks & jams, and crackling fireplaces. For those of us who are NOT into cold wet days spent hunting; we cook up soups, yummy breads, & hot chocolate, and we find fun things to do indoors. To facilitate this latter description, I will add some more festive “freebies!” As we look back to the early days, I like to bring attention to an important reason as to why some of our fore-founders actually survived those first harsh New England winters. It was because of the knowledge and teachings of the Native Americans who lived and thrived here. The early settlers did not discover this continent ~ it was already populated with an intelligent people. The colonists who built relationships with these people survived and benefitted from their wisdom to later celebrate the first Thanksgivings. In honor of this, I will begin with my Thanksgiving Native American Girl & Boy sets. (Pilgrims will come later, as they actually did…arrive later). I realize these are not totally culturally correct, nevertheless, my Girl set is given here, and the Boy set will be found on my facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/missysimaginings
Each picture is formatted to fit 8 1/2 x 11 paper. Just copy & paste or “save as” images to download into your favorite application for printing. The skirt section is glued into the space below the waistband, and the arms are meant to be attached with brads for movement. More coloring projects will be posted throughout the month. Enjoy & Happy November!
