Thanksgiving is in 3 days - can you believe it? Where has the time gone? I am headed to Columbia, SC to spend time with my brother and his family. I actually have four brothers - yep, FOUR! Looking back, I have no idea how my mother survived raising all of us (she stayed home while my dad worked). Me, I was the good child usually curled up in a chair somewhere with my nose in a book, but my brothers - hellions, mischievous kids always in to trouble or creating trouble. I am still hearing stories of things my brothers did that I never knew about. Jasonn was the brains of the group - always coming up with the next daredevil idea; David he was the quintessential daredevil - he'd do anything you told him to; Shawn was the actor - he was good at pretending to be the innocent or the injured party. I remember one time he really made me mad and I was yelling at him - mom came around the corner and the kid dropped to the ground and started crying and saying "why did you hit me? Oh, it hurts" - I was grounded for the weekend. Bobby was the baby and he too would do whatever he was told because he wanted to be included with the 'big boys'. Now we are all grown up, have families of our own, and live in 5 different states.
In honor of Thanksgiving, I stitched up Paulette's cute little turkey "bok bok" - though I left off the words. Isn't he just the cutest thing!
I also stitch SB Scaredy Sheep - I stitched this a couple of weeks ago but forgot to post it - it was a fun, quick stitch.
