Ready to talk Turkey?...

This seems to be the truth at Two Thimbles, anyway. These two birds may not be exactly the same but they definitely share that 'fabulous' trait that we strive for.

We added some frayed edges to November's Calendar quilt to give it some dimension, and we're pretty excited about how it turned out! The border applique pieces are bright fall colors and we toned it down to warm homespuns for the turkey himself. Pretty fun for a Thanksgiving decoration!

Our owl pincushion is more subdued, but just as darling. We've got kits for this little wool creature - the pattern is from Bunny Hill Designs and we used some newer winter-toned wools and a few Civil War prints as accents. Of course, we had to use the inspiration of the outdoors for our photo shoot- those fall colors fit in just right, don't you think?

Happy Stitching!
