Thanksgiving is such a wonderful holiday for counting our blessings and being thankful for all we have. And, Plymouth Kathy is definitely thankful.
In fact, she is so happy her positive attitude carries her all through the harsh winter months and into the spring.
She can handle the harsh New England weather as long as she stays positive. For making it through another harsh winter is definitely something to be thankful for.
And, if Kathy has her health and is surrounded by all the people she loves - well, how can you not be thankful for that.
Everyone knew that coming to America was not going to be easy. Living conditions were tenuous at best and Kathy knew this.
So, she and her family will work hard to make a new life for themselves in New England. A few harsh winters won't destroy their spirit.
In Fact, Plymouth Kathy decided to create a miniature ornament of herself for all New Englander's to make and hang in their homes around Thanksgiving to remind themselves of all they should be thankful for and to remind them that if the early pilgrims could face such adverse conditions in New England and survive, well - so can they.
"Plymouth Kathy" is a 9" pilgrim cloth ornament with an embroidered face. She is wearing fringed bloomers. Her boots are cross-tied and her dress has cuffed sleeves and a pilgrim collar. Her straight wool yarn hair is braided in one long braid down her back and she has bangs to frame her forehead. Her bonnet is lined and tied under her chin. Kathy's apron is fringed and tied around her waist in the back.
Count your blessings! "Plymouth Kathy" certainly counts hers.
