HedgeHUGS BOM – Block #11

It’s November, and the garden season is barely over. I still had cucumbers two weeks ago, and I only pulled them after the last harvest because there was arctic air in the forecast and overnight frost was coming. I also had a final bean harvest of about 1 kg before the cold air arrived. The warm fall temperatures have really extended the season this year. I am happy to get a small break now as I need to plan the garden set up for next year. And I am also going to start radishes indoors today. I have been doing this for the past two years as we always need radishes for a New Year’s Eve dish, and sometimes they are hard to find at the grocery store. With a grow light they’ll be ready to harvest around Christmas.

Our little hedgehog friend is celebrating Thanksgiving this year. Canadian Thanksgiving is in October but since there was also a Halloween block, the Thanksgiving block had to wait until November and American Thanksgiving. This is the most complicated block of the year, December’s block will be easier and have a lot less pieces. I tried to just add a single vegetable instead of the basket but the only one that looked right was a squash, and it looked too much like the October block with the carved Halloween pumpkin. So a basket it is, and the pieces are a bit fiddly but you can always do less, embroider or add a cute button. I like how he turned out, and pumpkin pie is my favourite, so it had to be included in the block. As always the pattern will be available for free download until the end of the month and move to the pattern store when the next block is released.
