We ended up getting a huge snowstorm that has caused lots of grief on lots of levels. We ended up getting at least 24 inches in less than 2 days. It is super heavy snow so trying to get unburied has been an ordeal. On top of that we have gotten rain and then freezing at night so everything is like an ice skating rink in places where the snow has been cleaned off. Thankfully the only real damage we have suffered so far has been extremely sore back and legs and the snow pulled off several gutters and flashing off the house but so far we have survived.
The next holiday I need to get caught up on is Thanksgiving. I had an idea of beading a turkey body and using a piece of tatting for the “feather part”. Due to the short amount of time between the next couple of holidays I needed to hurry to get on the project. My brain power is pretty much just being taken up with dealing with the problems at work and the everyday task of just trying to survive so I didn’t have time to try to invent a pattern or pour over the internet looking for one . I was going through past projects and found, by happy mistake, that I could repurpose one of Mark Meyers , aka Tatman, patterns to work with the concept I was going for. I used this same pattern for my Thanksgiving 2016 cards, it's called back to school apple. I had my bobbin wound with left over thread from last years thanksgiving project so I just used that thread which is Lizbeth called falling leaves in size 10.
I ended up making 16 of these but only ended up sending 9 of them out. I have been so late in getting these out lately that I am embarrassed so I end up not even sending them out at all so I end up with extra motifs and have no idea what to do with them.
The card idea was my husbands this time, I always come up with the picture and I have recruited him to help with the sayings.
