I Made a Turkey! New Design Soon!

Last year, I had several requests to do a turkey candle mat. 
I spent quite a bit of time drawing out and stitching a really nice turkey mat and it turned out beautiful!  There was a problem with it though … and it was  a BIG problem.  I couldn’t get a good picture of it for the front of the pattern because I made it with muliple dark colors.
I just couldn’t get the picture to show the details, so I gave up, thinking that I’ll do another one for this year using different, lighter colors.
I can’t bring myself to making another one though.  It wasn’t fun for me to make to begin with because it was basically 8 turkeys in a circle. They had no personality. 
I sat down last week and gave my turkey some personality….

It was inspired by my Crows in my “Those Blasted Crows” design…

As I was stitching it, I got the comment from hubby …. “it looks like the crow” …. I didn’t listen to him.
Then I got the comment from my 4 1/2 year old grandson,
“It looks like the crow, granma”. 
I didn’t listen to him either. 
My best designs came from not listening to the comments while I’m stitching. *chuckle*
This is my turkey with personality….
Introducing: Stuffed Turkey!
