We had a turkey spend about 30 minutes in our yard this summer. He's sure hiding now! I was thinking about that bird pecking around in the woods when I created this block for the Calendar of Houses Bee that I belong to.
The turkey was a labor of love, I'll just say. The only pattern for a turkey that I could find in my books was for a pieced turkey lurkey that was supposed to end up a 14 inch block or something.
But, the little diagram accompanying the pattern was the just the size I was needing so I measured the little pieces in the picture and made up a mini bird. It took a while. But, he's kinda cute, don't you think. (You better say "yes"!)
Inside the house, Mom and the little girl are busy getting the feast ready...just like I should be doing. Oh, I guess I better go buy a turkey tomorrow since I don't think Tom is coming back to my yard anytime soon!
Outside the house, the wind is blowing and....wait! Is that snow I see blowing in? I sure hope not! I'm not ready for winter weather quite yet. Are you?
