This is taken from a JBW Design and stitched on a huck towel. I have several of these towels in white and cream that I plan on making up for gifts. All you need to figure is the stitch count to make sure it fits in the rectangle space on the towel. I've also used L*K snippets before too and they work as well.
This was taken w/out the flash so you could see the color better. I used CC ~ Colonial Copper and that was it. LOVE the varigation on this one!Can you find the little motifs inside the turkey body? The pumpkin, basket, birds, acorn and rooster to name a few?? Isn't that neat how Judy Whitman incorporates those into her design?I also love me a bargain!!! I found this cute guy at a craft mall recently and he had a good price on him, so I just had to take him home. In fact, he practically jumped right into my arms! I knew right away where he would go. Right by the front door on our porch. I love how they used rusty stars for the eyes and mouth.Speaking of bargains, I found these luscious wools online recently and they were a very good price too! They have sweet little names, (left to right)~Bittersweet, Old World Santa, and Vintage Linen. Ooooh, la la. I can't wait to use these babies!!One more bargain I had to share w/you is this treenware scoop. It was made by someone locally and it is very, very heavy and I got a super-de-duper price on it too.This is how I decorated it.The rosehips are highly scented and boy do they smell great! I ended up putting it on the old quilt draped across the old black chair in the family room.
Next wk. is Halloween, then Thanksgiving is right around the corner, THEN CHRISTMAS!!! Do you realize we only have less than 2 months till Christmas?? EEEEKKKKKKK!!! Now that's scary(at least for me) cuz I'm soooooooooo slow at getting things done, but at least I'll have one thing done ahead of time this yr. Hopefully I'll get a few more done real soon!!! Right now I'm stitching something up for my give~away coming up soon, but I can't tell you what it is yet. I'll be back next wk. w/more hints and/or pics of it. Stay tuned.........
See ya next time~Happy stitching!
