It's Pumpkin Day

Today is the day we celebrate the life of a lovely lady who sadly lost her life to breast cancer almost two years ago.
  Two years ago , we bloggers knew the end was close for our friend Cathey , so may of us posted pumpkins on our blogs on her blogoversary the 27th September.
  Cathey was very poorly by this time , but we were told be a friend that she saw and loved the pumpkins , so in her honour, I and some others are carrying on the tradition to remember and honour a courageous , kind and beautiful person.
 You can find Catheys' blog here if you want to read her story in her own words .
Cathey , you are still missed and remembered by many. xxx

EDIT :  Gaynor at Stitchers' Anon has designed a gorgeous free chart to commemorate Cathey . See here .  Thank you Gaynor  , HUGS X

What a feeling I get when I go back sometimes to Cathey's blog. And dear Junior is 2.

She had much support from the blogging community. The loss of a young mother is small children is tough to bear.

I think of her often...and her husband and Junior left behind.

Whenever I see the pumpkin that I stitched for her on my shelf I have to think of her.

I first started reading blogs about two years ago and was constantly coming across "Pumpkins for Cathey" posts. It's so nice to read that two years down the road she is still being remembered so fondly. That says a lot for the stitching community. :)
