Sketch of Thanksgiving Day

~ A drawing I did nearly 30 YEARS ago ~

This was drawn from my own imagination.
I usually draw from some photo or picture inspiration.
My drawings tend to be SO two dimensional. 
You can see where I messed up - 
See the patch on my paper in my struggle to draw the father?
I don't draw men well.

Tomorrow IS Thanksgiving Day!
A group of women baking up a storm of cookies in Minneapolis back in 1954:


  1. Hello! I love your drawing! It illustrates so well the dream we all have about family life and festive moments. Really beautiful!
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! :)

    1. Dear Sara,

      You bless my heart! Thank you for your sweet words.

      God bless you and your family this Thanksgiving.
      :) Hopr

  2. I see nothing wrong with your drawing...I wish I had many bloggers enjoy quilting, sewing, have Etsy shops etc...sigh (smiles and really I am giggling and no harsh feelings etc).

    Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving. Blessings

  3. I think you are too hard on yourself! I'm not an artist, so maybe I just don't see it, but I think this sketch is absolutely amazing! I can't believe you still have it after 30 years as I can't seem to keep anything for longer than a couple, lol! This is something I think you should frame and hang. It's very cozy and homey. I love it!

  4. Dear Jessica,

    I was so PLEASANTLY surprised to see you here today! I know you are very busy. You always amaze me with all that you do and still find time to comment. Your are exceptional!

    We did have a glorious Thanksgiving Day.

    Lots of love,

  5. I think your drawing is amazing! I thought it was professionally drawn.
    Blessings from Harvest Lane Cottage,

  6. Oh, I think you give yourself far too little credit, Hope. Your drawing is incredible! Such a beautiful talent you have!
