One last turkey...


"Turkey Turkey"
design by Maggie Bonanomi
Over the river and through the wood to Grandfather's house we go...
I know that most people have moved on to the beginning of the Advent Season, but I had to share one last turkey finish!
We visited my parents' home for the Thanksgiving holiday and I am so thankful to have found the time for this happy dance finish! Our oldest son is getting his driver's ed hours in and drove down and back! He's a great driver and it gave me over 6 hours of stitching time!!



I also picked this piece up from the framers...
Another Boxwood & Berries finish - design by Blackbird Designs.
I abbreviated the pattern and stitched my favorite parts. I added the name of my town and year as this piece now commemorates our home winning the town beautification award this summer for our landscaping and curb appeal :) - I was just thrilled!

And our dear sweet Orion joined us on our family Thanksgiving trip :)
He was a perfect traveling companion, but is not too fond of hotels.
I think that our entire extended family fell in love with him ;)
Well, now I will begin my Christmas decorating and will be back to share soon...
Blessings, Patti
