Summer Travels and Classes Part 2

After I returned from my friend's wedding in New York and after Memorial Day, the Turkey Class started.  The "Turkey" is Tallulah Turkey from Sew Much Fun!

The Turkey is on the bottom right.  I took this class from Laurie Walden at Chandail over a 12 week period.  I had to furiously stitch to try to keep up with my classmates, to no avail most of the time.  All, except one of the ladies who took the class, do not work outside of the home, and they attend class for 4+ hours with Laurie each week!  I was determined however!  I spent every free minute stitching this bird.  Tallulah came with 3 pieces that make up the head, two wings, three sides to the breast, and two sides to the tail feathers.  Laurie changed all of the stitches, and her choices will make this piece even more lovely.  This piece is still in progress- Sew Much Fun yet Sew Much Work!  I think I would really like to do the Christmas version of this Turkey, and I definitely would take another class from Laurie again if I liked the canvas.  I think she did a great job with the stitch selection.  Posted below of multiple progress pictures that I took over the course of the last 3 months.












THEN..... My husband and I took our first REAL vacation to New York City!!  We visited all of the sights- Rockefeller Center, Central Park, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Times Square, Bryant Park, etc and then went to my cousin's wedding on Long Island.  It was a perfect four days, but I was glad to be back home to my puppy and my own bed!

  1. Tallulah looks like a FUN project. Love all the different stitches, if you get bored with one area just move to another! Please post more pictures as you progress.

    1. Cindy, this has been a great project and I do skip around if I am bored, which explains why the three breasts are not done :)

  3. If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home.
