A Thankful Turkey

I saw this cute idea for a Thanksgiving center piece in the current issue of Parents Magazine.  You just wrap a styrofoam ball with brown yarn, and then use a lighter color yarn to make a ball for the head.  Use felt for the eyes, beak, and the waddle.  For the feathers, we used construction paper and taped toothpicks to the bottom that just stick into the body of the turkey.  You are suppose to write something you are thankful for on each feather.  I had planned to do one feather for each day of November, so we'd have a filled out turkey by Thanksgiving, but there she sits all pretty on our kitchen table so maybe we'll just start that tradition next year. 

Finally...A Post!!

Whew! Morning sickness has really slowed me down, but I'm starting to come out of it and able to get back to all of the projects on my "to do" list. ;)  Now, add to that, planning a nursery again! YAY! I know, I know, I do have the stuff I used for AC's nursery, but honestly, I really want a girl or boy nursery.  I'm tired of the gender neutral stuff.  And even though we aren't finding out the sex again (!), I have a plan on how to have everything ready when the baby gets here in June (whether its a boy or a girl).  Stay tuned...more to come on that later...

However, I did manage this past weekend, to make some goodies for a dear friend, Lauren,  I've known since elementary school.  She had a shower for her first son, Henry, who is due in January.  I hadn't made any boy burping cloths yet, but I found this cute fabric from Hancock Fabrics last weekend and also painted her a frame for the nursery.  I didn't mean for the frame to match the burping cloths, but they both turned out really cute! :)
