    I received a surprise package yesterday from oksewnsew! It was a TURKEY of a gift lol.. ok a turkey literally. She made it out of oversized yo yos for the feathers and a cute stuffed front. I will post pictures when I get home from dialysis.. there was a darling mouse ornament out of round wooden balls and little pipe cleaner antlers. oh he can hang on WALDO!!! antlers for my antlered friend! Thank you it truly made me smile and I was blown away by your thoughtfulness. I collect turkeys of all things and well I have an addition to the turkey parade now

    I have Miss Chickadeee55's block finished and ready to mail, but there is one slight problem. I think I had her name and address but for the life of me I can't find it anywhere. I have pmd her but haven't heard back. So if there is anyone close to her, give her jungle and let her know I am looking for her - don't want to be late in getting the mail out! It's my first attempt at string blocks and I think it went ok, I'm anxious to know what she thinks!

    I haven't tried a string block.. is it hard?

    I love turkeys. I used to have a wonderful collection of those vases from say the 50's or 60's ftd ceramic ones you put a bit of flowers in the back part? I had to sell them at one point and now I so wish I had them back! I love holiday decorating (surprise!) and the pilgrims and Indians are all so mean looking! so I started on turkeys. Thought I was the only one then one day there was this cover photo on the country living magazine and there was shelf full of them! turkeys! so phew I am not alone.. I miss feeding those buggers in my old front yard. Dozens.. they are such magnificent big birds.. all those feathers! my cats miss the feathers lol..

    pics coming sorry flopped over really early oksewnsew promise to post today!

    RFC, sent you a PM with info. Ya know, I have found that if you keep a small desk calendar by your computer, when you get your partner's info, write it down on that date, what the theme is, etc, then when it's time to mail, there it is...;o) You can also check your PM's, it should still be there. Just little FYI's that help. Guess that comes from working books and computers for so many years, had to write my 'mind' down or would forget stuff..lolo

    YES, Brat, gotta show the pics. I have them if you need me to post. ;o) So glad you liked the package...it was just for fun. And, NO, string blocks are not hard to do..actually kinda fun.

    I collect turkeys too! Lots of salt & pepper shakers, planters, platters, and plates. It is so interesting that a basically homely bird has inspired so many lovely objects. RedGarnet222 made me a great turkey that has become a tablecloth.
    Let's see if I can find the photo! Ah, here it is. And one of my selvage pieces!

    What cute turkeys we have on this board (mmmm take that however you wish on this bright morning ) .

    Happy Day to y'all.

    Hope to get my partner's finished up today ...

    Yesterday was a little too hectic -- Our son & DIL are in Colorado for a mini honeymoon they never got to have. The other Grandma is watching their 3 girls mostly...well,

    Friday night the 4 yr got croup and we were up with her until 4am(met her at son's house to get GDs medicine)

    then I had to get up at 6am to take the 7 yr GD to her first 1 mile fun run (she did it in 12 minutes),

    went to Hobby Lobby & Michaels to get "peacock costume" stuff for the 7 yr's Christmas program,

    drop off GD back with other Grandma,

    visited my sister in the hospital (40 miles away-1 way) as she was getting discharged from having pneumonia,

    checked on S & DIL's outside animals as there were horrific storms last night and phew,

    said heck with everything and finally went to bed at 9,

    oh wait, I had to wait for my nephew come over and get the turkey and ham I had gotten for Thanksgiving for them.
    Yep, no sewing yesterday.

    Got home this morning from our Marathon drive to Texas and what a wonderful surprise my block plus a extra one was waiting for me. I still have not conquered down loading pictures on here. I thought I had but it is not working. But I got one of the block I requested "Boxy Star" in brown, beige, teals, terracotta with beige or cream as the back ground. My added surprise was a spool block with a cream/beige back ground.
    Janice I love my blocks thank you so very much. I hope that you like mine as much as I love yours.

    I'm half finished with one block and nearly done with the second -- just have to add a few details. I'm excited about the second one -- it's a building and it looks close to how I'd envisioned it. Tomorrow I'll post photos.

    Finished my blocks for my partner, sure hope she likes them, it was kinda an open theme.

    Our battery back up on our computer fried, so no computer for a whole day. You would think the world came to an end for DH, but I am like, so can't we live without a computer for one day. (well, I did miss my partners email and I think she thought I forgot about her), but all is good now, we are up and running.

    Today is my birthday, and I have a whole homemade carrot cake to eat, hugs to my DH for that. Hey, Jean you coming over for coffee and cake!!!!!!

    Happy Monday everyone.

    moonwork you WORE Me out just reading about your adventures.. yikes. I hope life around you gets easier and that the family is on the mend. croup is not a fun thing at all.. my daughter had whooping cough when she was little scared the living daylights out of me. I pray the little one heals fast as does your sister.

    oksewnsew pulled the camera over here this morning only to have no clue what I did with the little memory card holder that plugs into the computer. its always on the coffee table. sigh.. now to find it I did take pictures like promised.. I hate when things like this happen! if you would like to post for me I would appreciate it you probably took a much better picture of my Tom Turkey. gosh he is cute and the ornies too please if you beat me to it. I am in love with those lace ornaments big time.
