This week I have been working on my turkey.
When I was packing up to move here, I did something
really stupid and that was to throw away or give away
my patterns to make wood things. I think my thinking
was I would be riding my horse off into the sunset and never
do crafty things again.
Well, I am hard pressed now to find stuff like that anymore.
I was looking around a blogs one day and I came across,
Sue Allemand http://freepaintinpatterns.blogspot.com/
and she has some really cute free patterns and this turkey
was one of them. I couldn't wait to make it. I just didn't know
it was going to take me so long. I was half afraid it was going to
be after Thanksgiving before I made it so I decided this week
was the week. I finished it this morning.
I finally finished my rug. I did it with a Oxford
Needle punch. I have to do that finishing up stuff
that I have no idea how to do but I will get out my book by
Pat Cross and I will do that next week. This is the first project
I have ever done that was so big. I need to do another one
so I don't forget how to do it. The next one I want to do though
is I want to hook it with a rug hook.
I am so glad it is Friday and I look forward to the weekend.
I hope your Friday is a good one too.
